Guy Shalev@GuyShalev: Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. Destroying whole galaxies.

Colton ‏@sniperking323: Probably Elfen Lied.

Jesse P. [email protected]: Upon reflection prompted by @Anime3000‘s question, I just don’t know. At this point I think I may be desensitized  to anime violence.

Doctor Flamwenco [email protected]: the final episode of Blood C still makes me nauseous just by thinking about it

Brian Smith [email protected]_engine: Dame Oyaji – 1974 spousal abuse “comedy”

Makalah J [email protected]: Higurashi or Corpse Party. Never again.

James Tuddrussell [email protected]: Shigurui: Death Frenzy

justin urhammer [email protected]: Blood C, Future Diary, Elfen Lied, Another, Deadman Wonderland. Thats what I can think of off the top of my head

Michael Spaulding [email protected]: It has to be My Little Pony Friendship is Magic

JackTWD4th [email protected]: A Certain Magical Index. I’ve never seen so many women punched in the face before.

MarkusD [email protected]: definitely Berserk and Hellsing Ultimate

Amon81 [email protected]: I’d say the uncut Violence Jack. The cut version we got in the UK is pathetic compared to the uncut version. Oh and Genocyber.

Chris the Z-fighter [email protected]: Deadman Wonderland

Nathan Le [email protected]: Attack on Titan

Cesar [email protected]: if people aren’t mentioning 80’s anime, then it can’t possibly count.  I’ll say Victory Gundam to be different.

Patrick Prudlik [email protected]: My pick would be the rape scene from Paprika. Not really violent in the typical sense, but man, is it uncomfortable to watch.

Miranda Melson [email protected]_of_Angels: Higurashi, or Elfen Lied… or Corpse party…

Lord Peothra [email protected]: Mirai Nikki & Higurashi no Naku Koro ni are also good examples.

Ash Ketchum [email protected]_21: Hmmm. Attack on Titan, Future Diary, Another, and Samurai Champloo

GeekEirePodcast [email protected]: Hellsing Ultimate, Elfen Lied, and Boogiepop Phantom

Kody Robichaux [email protected]: Attack on Titan and Future Diary tied for me, a close second would be Another.

Felo Belmontt [email protected]: Black Lagoon, por el momento

    Shigurui is gorn the anime, more so than Berserk even. As it doesn’t really have too much else going for it. It isn’t really as consistently violent as Berserk, but when it is violent it spares no expense or detail.

    It’s basically politics and talking interspersed with exquisitely rendered mutilation. The violence therefore comes off as more extreme because of the sheer detail involved, as well as how jarring it is.

    Plus, it’s got weird sexual scenes as well.

    Liam was also Dr Tenma

    Sean I know what you mean with that school episode and the bunnies putting the people into the bag and, and….. it was just nuts….

    • As crazy as the final episodes were, that bunny episode was off the charts.

      • Brandon Smith

        I had already seen Hellsing Ult and Elfen Lied and bits of Shiki but Blood C literally took me off guard when it hit those last 3-4 episodes. Never gonna forget the kid that almost made it out and got killed by that falling glass, r.i.p 🙁

  • Jahmere is the one who knows the most about Akame ga Kill, but he’s the only one who didn’t pronounce it right. Ah, he’s on a boat now. I is sad.

    Terror in Resonance is not as good as it should have been, but I liked it quite a lot.

  • Flash Fact:

    Michael Martinez is the hugest fan of RWBY- at least when it comes to A3K podcasters.
