Halloween may be a time of ghosts and monsters, but some popular anime provide fun, lighthearted entertainment to enjoy during the spooky season.

Halloween is that time of year when ghosts and ghouls set out upon the world of the living. Spirits are channeled and demons are conjured via the costumes of Trick-or-Treaters all over the world. Though these aberrations are normally seen as evil and terrifying in most popular forms of media, anime has a way of taking the Halloween spirit and tapping into what it’s really all about: having fun.

Though his actual species is not clear, Elias certainly has an intimidating, scary appearance.

Despite his frightening looks, Elias has human qualities which make his relationship with Chise both intense and interesting. It also leads to a lot of funny moments as Chise tries to guide Elias in understanding what it means to be human.
