And one of such underrated sets of genres is Horror and Comedy. Yeah, anime somehow manages to mix up two of the most distinct feelings together and create some incredible pieces for people to enjoy.

 

And in today's article, we are going to list 25 of them here. So grab your favorite lucky charm, lay down on your couch and let's dive deep into the world of laughter and jumpscares.

 

I hope you enjoy it.

Teizokurei Daydream deals with a girl who can see ghosts all her life. Her name is Saiki Misaki and her qualities include being able to have a sense of presence when it comes to ghosts.

 

The important thing here is that it is sort of her responsibility now that she has to take care of these ghosts as they infiltrate their surroundings.

 

However, violence isn't the way. She must do it by talking it out to them.

 

And it is when she does that, that the ghosts take the effort to give up on their futile attempts.

 

However, the catch is that Sasaki had a miserable past. So things do get funny at times with her presence.

Now, all they have in their hands is an immense power that can bind humanity to enslavement forever.

 

However, things don't work out that way because a department of the Tokyo Police decides to revolt against these monsters.

 

As this department has women who are beyond normal in terms of physical capabilities. Maybe they will be able to save the world.

This anime is just as funny as you can expect. And this is what makes it a great watch for Horror Comedy.

 

The show talks about Hiro Hiyorimi who was living his life normally until the fortunately unfortunate day when he decided to do some heroic act.

 

He went ahead and saved a young girl from an accident. However, in the process, he gets caught up in an accident.
