I'll probably watch this later this month or marathon. It does look like something I'm interested in though.

Marathoning it might deaden the effect; you'd kind of inure yourself to it after two or three consecutive episodes.

They're only 4.5 minutes, I'd honestly suggest watching them weekly and spacing it out.

I would have to agree with Insomnist here. They are really short eps and each ep so far, seems to have a rather climatic end to each of them. So if u were to marathon it, it would almost be like getting hit with a hammer every few minutes at the end or climax of each of these short eps.

These are so good in bite-size pieces! They aren't really that scary, but just creepy enough for a little thrill. I think watching them all in a row would feel a little dull.

Anyone know the name of the song at the end? I know that's Miku singing but can't figure out the song.

This 4th ep was another good one! At the last scene of the ep, I was pretty startled there, but I immediately busted out laughing because I knew something like that would happen and I was kinda waiting for it the whole time, lol.

I think it would have been scarier without that end.

This one is my favorite so far.

Did u jump or get startled at all at the end?

And yeah, I think this was the creepiest out of all of them from start to finish, at least for me anyway.

So how is this show so far? I haven't seen it yet and been avoiding it because of the "ghost stories" in the title and I thought I would be too freaked out over this kind of thing.

For a 4 and half minute show, I'd say it's pretty good and well worth it!! But only if you are into creepy stories! Each ep seems to draw u into a creepy atmosphere straight from the OP song, and then near the end of each episode, there's always a VERY dramatically climatic end to the whole story, lol. Sometimes the end will make u want to jump out of your seat - so do be prepared for that, lol, if u end up watching this.

It's not too bad.
It seems to trade hands between jump scare episodes and 2Japanese4me episodes.

Was I the only one who felt really bad for the teacher in the end? I mean come on, she was working her butt off on that school newspaper late at night and she only wanted to get some copies printed off! I respect people with dedication like that towards their work, she didnt deserve having some creepy hair lady mess up her print outs Or maybe I am just being a bit too touchy about it? ehe

But I did enjoy that episode though, best ep so far for me

HOLY moly! I was so freaked... I did feel bad for her... She just wanted to get her work done and go home, but that freaky hair ghost was making a mess out of everything... I just wonder why didn't she see the hair when she pulled the copier... :O

What?! This is only 4 minutes per episode?? I thought it was a full length show which was another reason I was waiting until all the episodes were out to watch it (I thought I would have to dedicate more time to it). I think I might give this show a try tomorrow or so then.

I'll give it a chance, just to see what it's like.

I always fall trap to creepy stories especially ghost stories. I get paranoid as hell afterwards, but curiosity always gets the better of me. I saw the first 3 last week and they were pretty good, although only the 1st one actually scared me (jump-scare). Definitely looking forward to more. The 4-5 minute length is perfect for me too, enough to creep me out but not full out horror.
