Anyone have or know of any links to sites for information about Kamishibai? I would love to know where to find information about the original type of formatting, how the storytelling was told by the people, and just basic history. I haven't found much myself so I decided to see if anyone knew anything.

I would love to expand my own short story collection and artwork talents to this ancient art.

Thanks to any and all in advance. You're most welcome to pm me or post here (others might be interested as well but I may have trouble finding my way back to my posts! Happens all the time lol.)

depends are you going for more towards kids, teens or adults... to start you off https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kamishibai there's also an anime floating about regarding such a thing https://www.anime-planet.com/anime/yamishibai-japanese-ghost-stories and it can be watched, all five seasons, here on CR http://www.crunchyroll.com/yamishibai-japanese-ghost-stories it's basically urban legends and ideas, you might find some help from watching a few. they are super short, top five minutes long. hope this gets you started.

Thanks, I have seen all the Yamishibai series already. I will check out your links though the few links I clicked from the Wikipedia sent me to a Kamishibai forum that didn't seem to let me access any information (the forum seemed "stopped" or "dead" and no way to sign up really either if you needed to do that first. The other links are difficult as they are untranslated so (being not very good with machines) I have trouble with translating. I usually end up copy/paste and using a translator.

I am interested in all audience levels and the differences (i.e. to find the history of the art form), yes.

Thanks again
