It’s October and that means it’s time to get into the spirit of the season, and obviously nothing gets you into the Halloween mood better than horror. Unfortunately when it comes to most live-action horror films, there’s only so much that can be done and shown, but thankfully of all things, Anime can cross the line with story, gore, and intriguing storytelling. So for every day this month, I’ll be featuring a unique Anime that fits the horror genre that you can most likely find on any streaming service. Let’s see the world through the red eye of Psychic Detective Yakumo!

Psychic Detective Yakumo (2010) follows a mysterious college student Yakumo, who works as a psychic detective as he was born with one red eye that allows him to see spirits that in turn help him be able to solve crimes. After helping a fellow student with a case, he can’t seem to get rid of her.

This 13 episode series was born out of a 12 volume book series that was also turned into a live-action TV drama, spawned a couple of other novel series, and a manga.
