Are you a horror fan who's already seen all the older horror classics like Elfen Lied, Shiki, and Blood+? Are you a newer fan who's looking for something a little more modern to cut your teeth on? Wherever you fall on that spectrum, if you're looking for the best modern horror anime from 2016 onwards, there's plenty to choose from.
The most obvious choice is The Promised Neverland, an incredible series about a group of kids trying to avoid being turned into demon meat. But what if you've already seen that wildly popular anime, or you want to watch something that could never be considered appropriate for the shonen demographic? Then you might want to try Devilman Crybaby, a reboot of the Devilman franchise that will leave you absolutely stunned.
If you don't see shows like Berserk 2016 or Tokyo Ghoul:Re, it's not because we ignored them - it's because they assume that you've seen earlier seasons that came out before 2016. We did include a few sequels, but those are either episodic anime that don't require prior knowledge, or sequels that give you enough information that you don't need to go back and watch older works if you'd prefer not to.
