Season 3 of these short ghost and horror stories is here!


Watch on Crunchyroll:
/yamishibai-japanese-ghost-stories

More info at:
My Anime List - Yami Shibai 3rd Season
Anime News Network - Yami Shibai (TV 3)

From Site News:

The thrilling horror series returns for a third season, and promises even more Japanese ghost stories and urban legends. These stories are framed in each episode by an old man telling these tales to schoolchildren using kamishibai, a traditional Japanese method of storytelling using paper scrolls."


ETA: Hmmm. Looks like that description of how the stories are framed isn't so accurate anymore. I miss the old guy's "Step right up" but the OP is still quite creepy and sets an appropriate mood.




I love the old-fashioned paper-cutout style of animation, and have been nicely surprised by how really scary and creepy most of these tales have been in past seasons.

I'll be watching this as soon as Crunchy puts it out to Roku -- which shouldn't be too much longer.

In the meantime, I thought I might as well start a new thread for the new season.

Will add my first impressions of the new season soon.

I saw the picture of the ghost girl earlier. Almost missed it but wow, watching this with headphones is like a weird experience.

Nice to see that this season got its own thread now.

I'm a big fan of the series so I am really happy that we get a few more episodes. Yes, there are some weak episodes among the bunch but the good and really creepy ones more than make up for it.

As for episode one: Definitely a decent start. I always thought that bathhouses are kind of a creepy location. Being in there alone would freak me the hell out, even without some kind of strange voice talking to me. That's why I would probably never get into that kind of situation seeing how I'd be out of there the second that stuff started happening. Design of the ghost girl was freaky. I guess we're going to get a few more imaginative and creepy monster designs this season than we did the last two or so it seems judging by the key visuals that were released. I'm looking forward to more.

So the creepiness is back with a ghost girl(?) and her voice. Wonder what she looks like..

She's a real looker, you don't want to miss this one!




I thought it was just going to be creepy and eerie, like a suicide ghost. Didn't really expect it to end all heart-jump violent like that!

I think I do prefer quietly eerie and morbid to more aggressive sorts of horror, but I enjoyed it any way.

Don't watch this before going to bed or if you have fear of insects.

No matter how you cut it, taxidermy is just creepy anyways.

Continues to be creepy, but there's not much else to say.

I do like how season 3 is more monster focused, and is more about people making really bad life choices.
