Everyone has dreams occasionally of living in a fantasy world. And few outlets provide quite as much fantasy as anime. Anime usually provides the most colorful, intriguing, and straight up bizarre of fantasy options. But anyone who has watched enough anime will also tell you, that for every enticing and imaginative escape that anime provides, there are 20 absolutely freaky and horrifying possibilities presented as well.

The worlds built in anime are intricate and intriguing but there are plenty of dangerous anime locations no one would ever want to see replicated in the real world. Between mass casualties, hideous monsters, dystopian war zones, and daily attacks there are plenty of nightmare-scapes thought up by anime creators. While the animated nature of anime provides desensitization when watching these disturbing scenarios play out, lets take a minute to consider what life in these crazy anime settings would actually be like. 

With so much anime skewing toward younger audiences, it's easy to gloss over the more mature series like Elfen Lied or Attack on Titan, both of which rarely allow their poor characters a peaceful day. It's hard to decide which is worse, being devoured by naked giants or forced to play in suicidal games. That's just the top of the barrel. Let's dive deeper into 15 anime locations that will certainly never be turned into theme parks.
