Is the Corpse Party anime really as fucked up as I heard?
I need to know before I watch it
It's very very excessively gruesome to the point where you'll have to look away from the screen at times unless you're some sort of sociopath. If you've seen anime like Elfen Lied or similar, where the gore is excessive but weightless, where people just *pop* like blood bags, Corpse Party isn't quite like that. It's a whole lot more meaty and crunchy, and the reasonably solid voices add a lot to it. You'll be hearing a lot of people screaming in pain.
That said it's just an exercise in violence and can only go so deep. I lean back to Evangelion as an example of how characters rather than events are what make situations fucked up, the few instances of gore are not only more effectively done but have so much consequence behind them. It's the difference between saying "haha wow this is so fucked up" as you keep watching, and feeling silently dejected after the episode ends.
It's only like four episodes though so fuck it why not.
