Plot Summary


Series of shorts in an omnibus format that will tell stories of the strange and bizarre in our world, including UFOs, cryptids, curses, ancient civilizations, supernatural powers, spiritual experiences, bizarre cases, different dimensions, and urban legends, told in a picture show style. The anime seeks to evoke the retro atmosphere of pulp horror stories that were popular in the 60s and 70s in magazines.

Coming to CR apparently.

It's something similar to the Ghost Story shorts that aired earlier this year.

Tomorrow in fact. From Site News:


But we've still got more shows this season, including The World YAMIZUKAN, launching on Crunchyroll Sunday, April 2 at 1:05pm Pacific Time for users worldwide ex Asian.


I'm going to treat this as a special case and just call this the Discussion thread (I've just renamed it) since having an "Anticipation" thread for a day makes not a lot of sense.

However I'm also not sure that the thread couldn't have waited until tomorrow to be created. There is both the Site News Spring Lineup thread, and and the Spring 2017 Anime thread here where it could have been mentioned as a kind of quick heads up and that would suffice for a bit of pre-discussion about something that had gone under the radar.

On-topic I don't always like supposedly weird, spooky, supernatural stories; they often aren't very well done. But if they are short I'm generally willing to take the time to be moderately entertained. I even watched the latest season of Yamishibai which was pretty wretched.

So, I'll give this a chance since it's being so conveniently offered up to us. (Sometimes I overeat though, at the Crunchyroll buffet )

The art style of this show reminds me of old myth and mysterious happenings books that were sitting around the clinic of my elementary school. I'm really enjoying the Japanese take on western myths.

It's kind of a worse Yamishibai. Not bad, but not really all that scary or good either, mostly due to the pacing.
