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 play a game with King’s Game: The Animation.
King’s Game: The Animation (2017) Is about a class of students who all receive a mysterious text message telling them that they’re in The King’s Game, and when the King gives an order to a particular student, they must perform it or be punished (killed), one of the students in the class has played the game before and was the lone survivor.
This 12 episode series is a sequel to one of the mangas in the “King’s Game” series which features key events from the manga in the show as flashbacks.
