At last we come to the final feature of October and so that last post in our quest to figure out what the best horror anime needs. This week, naturally, we turn our attention to the finale. Spoilers will follow.
In our quest to determine what the best horror anime needs we've meandered our way through starting the anime, the importance of a good cast and explored settings. This week it is all about the feels.
