I hope everybody is doing well this fine October. The past couple of years I’ve done Halloween events, most notably last year with my October Review Fest where I did a whole month of themed content. Unfortunately this year I totally spaced the fact that October comes after September (I’ve been dealing with a lot of stuff, bare with me guys) so I was not at all prepared to do an awesome event at that scale again this year. Don’t distress though, that’s where Freaky Fridays come in! Every Friday this month I’ll have a themed article for the Halloween season. Today, 10 anime to get you into the Halloween spirit!

It’s That Time of Year Again!
Unfortunately, there has just been too much going on in my life for me to do a full fledged Halloween Week like I did last year, but I didn’t want to do nothing this year. In this article I’ll tackle some cool Halloween suggestions as well as to call back to posts of yesteryear’s Halloween.
Stuff From Last Year
Just click on the titles of the reviews below to see what I was talking about last year.
Things I think people should especially check out or do from this list for Halloween this year are Betrayal At House On The Hill, Over The Garden Wall, and (obligatorily) The Nightmare Before Christmas. Each item from last year’s review slate is a good one for Halloween either way though.
Some New Recommendations
Here’s a short list of three things I recommend for your Halloween along with a brief reason as to why for each. These are in no particular order.
Shiki is by far one of the best horror anime I’ve ever watched. At first glance, the show seems pretty terrible but given the chance, Shiki is more than capable of proving just how great of a show it actually is. Shiki is a more traditional vampire story taking place in a modern setting. When the horror sets in, and mind you it does take its time getting there, you’ll be on the edge of your seat. Of particular note, I found it interesting that the show explored some deeper sociological and philosophical topics, which may be of some interest to others.
You can watch this one for on Hulu subbed.
2. Soul Eater
This show just oozes Halloween. I’ll leave some pictures and the OP below, should speak for itself. Not as spooky as Shiki but a fun watch if you haven’t seen it before. You can watch this one on Hulu too (dub and sub).
3. Stranger Things
In case you’ve been living under a rock and don’t know, Stranger Things is fantastic. If you haven’t seen it already, go watch it on Netflix. Need some convincing? Jacob did a review of this one, so click on this link and check it out.
This Top 10 is part of The 12 Days of Christmas
Hello all! It’s Dana again, coming at ya with my first official article!
Now, I love anime as much as the next nerd (affection intended), but with more high quality shows being produced for western audiences all the time I think we should take some time to show some appreciation. During this Christmas season, I’d like to look back at all the shows that have given me so much joy over the years, whether they be recent or from my childhood. I don’t claim to have seen all there is to see of course, and there are definitely some hidden (or not so hidden) gems that I’ll have overlooked. But these are the series that I most enjoyed watching and that still hold up now in some cases. These are very much my opinions only and I reserve the right to use the argument “because it’s fun/awesome/”I was feeling it” as a reason for any of my placements.

This is TV review 1 & is part of Halloween Week
With Halloween almost here, I thought we’d kickoff my first ever TV review with Cartoon Network’s Over The Garden Wall. This is the network’s first mini-series and originally aired in 2014. Let’s venture into the unknown and see just what is over the garden wall. Continue reading “Over The Garden Wall Review”
