    If you liked Another, you must check out Shiki. Dusk Maiden Of Amnesia is also pretty good.

    Elfen Lied is shouldnt’ really be considered a horror, neither should Higurashi in my opinion. There was nothing “Scary” about Elfen Lied. It was bloody, and had a good story, yes. But scary? No.
    Same with Higurashi, although Higurashi -kinda- fits the scenerio better
