(2023) Top 15 Best Horror Anime on Funimation Ranked

Last updated on March 18th, 2023 at 02:11 pm

Today we bring you an article on the Top 15 Best Horror Anime on Funimation Ranked.

Horror anime have always had the most hype and controversy created by its licensing. While the genre does range from the simple supernatural, it also touches human-centered thrillers. And thus, it most likely includes jumpscares, gore, and mildly graphic scenes that send a chill down the audience’s spine.

While most legal sites do have issues with providing horror anime in select countries, Crunchyroll and Funimation do their best. However, things now will most likely change due to Funimation buying Crunchyroll for over a billion dollars.

While fans are unsure what it means for availability, there is a possibility of gaining a larger anime library. Therefore without any further ado, let’s get into the Top 15 Best Horror Anime on Funimation Ranked by their MAL scores.
