Anime like Narutaru and Elfen Lied

I am looking for anime like Narutaru and Elfen Lied. I am not looking for gore and murder but I am looking anime with a similar if not creepy atmosphere. I had already seen Evangelion but I had heard about Higurashi and Umineko, are there anime like Narutaru or Elfen lied? Starts off like some typical highschool anime thgen dives into something creepy, strange, deep and horiffic.

If you liked Narutaru try Bokurano since its by the same mangaka, definitely has some epic moments in it. Id definitely rec Higurashi. Also Ghost Hunt. Anime out right now you might want to try Highschool of the Dead, Occult Academy and Shiki.

HOTD does start out with lots of gore but its fun.
Shiki might be your best best for something starting off regular and then getting more and more into creepy though the first epi sets up a lot of the mystery.

As Elfen Lied?

I would go for Ga-Rei Zero then, it is quiet bloody but not to such extend as Elfen Lied and not so revealing. But it has similar heavy theme and is depressing and sad.
Though it has some humour too.

The main theme of the anime is "Can you kill the one you love because of love?"

I do highly recommend it f you liked Elfen Lied.

Umineko - is not school based but it has a lot killing in it and a lot of different ways of doing it. Though the most gar moments are censored... but if you like freaky and bloody theme, it might work for you.
