Some of us crave the more adult depictions of anime. While there are the anime more geared towards children such as Dragon Ball Z and Pokémon that we grow up with, our tastes evolve as we get older and there is more that we look for in anime as we mature. Nudity is one aspect of anime that will appear through numerous anime. As Halloween approaches, we look for the scarier and more gruesome anime to get into the spirit of the holiday. The anime moments listed below are some of the scariest scenes in anime that involve nudity for those of you looking for a spookier and less child-oriented scare.
5. Slime Monster Scene in High School DxD
When choosing their familiars, the adorable band of devils are encountered with a beast in the forest, the likes of which they have never seen before. As the slime drops on them, the girls are horrified as it slowly eats away at their clothes leaving them in nothing but their birthday suits. True to form, Issei is delighted by this and wishes for the slime to become his familiar. This portrayal of naked bodies is both scary and entertaining. Monsters are not always intimidating but even the least scary looking one can do the most damage to your pride.
4. Escape Scene in Elfen Lied
The initial introduction to Elfen Lied shocks the viewer into submission. While Lucy is still in the government holding facility she emerges nude wearing nothing but a helmet. Her powers are limitless and she causes many gory deaths as she passes by soldiers that can’t even touch her. This fearsome display is easily one of the goriest in the anime and allows for the viewer to get invested through shock value from the beginning of the anime.
3. Spider Sex Scene in Youjuu Toshi (Wicked City)
Let’s face it, we all have a somewhat irrational fear of spiders. They have too many eyes and too many legs to be a normal creature. This fear haunts us to the core when we see a beautiful woman in a sexual moment transform into a hideous spider. By making the woman nude, they are able to fully portray the transformation. This gruesome reveal is perfect for the ultimate Halloween fright night.
2. Horse Rape Scene in Berserk
Through the possession of an evil spirit, the horse that Guts rode rises to meet Farnese and attempts to rape her. This grisly scene is arguably one of the most disturbing in anime. The beastiality portrayed in this scene is taboo in both eastern and western culture making it disturbing and scary to everyone who watches it. The lack of control displayed in this scene by Farnese is unsettling and the whole scene in general must be seen to be believed.
1. Body Horror Scene in Mnemosyne: Mnemosyne no Musume-tachi (Rin: Daughters of Mnemosyne)
It is no secret that this anime holds a great deal of body horror. However, the first body horror scene with Rin naked in the very first episode is hard to beat for being uncomfortable and downright scary. With medical tools and doctor, Rin must escape her horrible fate. Luckily she is blessed with supernatural powers to keep her alive, but the amount of blood loss and psychological trauma is hard to watch just as a viewer. This easily is one of the scariest moments in anime involving nudity.
Horror and psychological anime are full of gore and menacing scenes, but the five listed above are what we believe to be the scariest scenes involving nudity. The anime listed above are not for the faint of heart and must truly be seen to be believed. While the creators have their own interpretation and influence on the scene, we must secretly wonder what was going on in their heads in order to create these scenes.
