    Kagewai is quite Bold.
    The Kamishibai Animation style is a bold approach, reminds me of Yamishibai: Japanese Ghost Stories, but it is interesting thus far. 4 stars for now, but lets see how Kagewani's story unravels, in the proceeding weeks. If you enjoy horror, and don't mind the animation style, then this is your anime.

    Old school horror short.
    Despite the stiff animation style, the story potential pulls through with a level of detail that intrigues far beyond what you would expect in a short. It is showing itself to have a good substantive core.

    This is a horror short with the episodes are coming in at roughly 7 minutes. It's done in a paper format with rough graphics that are pretty stiff. If you have seen Horror News it is that ...

    Like Yamishibai without my hand in front of the screen!
    I'll admit, I'm a total wuss when it comes to scary stories. So I suffered through the entirely of Yamishibai for two reasons: my husband loved it and I loved the art style. The limited movements, the paper cutout looking figures, etc. were new to me and served to make a regular ghost story show stand out.

    So when I saw the same people were doing a monster series...sign me up! And largely, it ...

    Great Story Telling, Smooth Animation, Lots of Suspense
    The first few seconds didn't impress me. As the story progressed, I became intrigued. The quality is actually good for something that seems low budget. The animation is fluid and the background/foreground are how they should be. The stories and monsters are great so far.

    So far, the anime revolves around these short stories where a detective somehow is close enough to get involved in all these ...

    A creepy monster show with a nice mysterious atmosphere.
    This is from the creators of Yamishibai: Japanese Ghost Stories, so it has a similar animation style. Movement is kept to a minimum so the show's focus is mainly on what is happening. The protagonist is not really there much, and it seems that we are learning about the stories as he hears them. At least that is my theory, since he is a professor that specializes in these UMA's or cryptids. The ...

    Season 2 Falls Short
    Season 2 Review

    Although the plot is still interesting, and the pace is still good, compared to season 1, it is just not as intense, and most of the designs of monsters are not as fresh, either. The poor animation, which created great effects in season 1, does not have as intriguing effects any more given less image detail in the scenes. With more complex human interactions, however, the ...

  • BRILLIANT! MUST WATCH!
    Just finished watching season 1 and 2. hopefully there will be a number 3.
    One thing about this anime which got me hooked to start with was its unique art style.
    The story is amazing but i have to admit at first i was a little confused. but the more you watch the more you begin to understand it.
    9/10 The creators are genius in my opinion.

  • One of The Best of the Season!
    Dont skip out on this mini-series/anime. Better than nearly all the drivel coming out the doors right now and at only 8 minutes a pop, thats saying something. Kagewani has a unique art-style, is action and story packed, has characters you care about, and has a satisfying ending. What more do you need in an anime?

  • FANTASTIC! Worth your time!
    Sometimes one encounters an Anime that blows away any preconception you had about it. This is one of those Anime!

    "KAGEWANI" attracted me with it's unique Animation, & kept me there with it's fantastic story telling. You would never think it possible to fill so much fantastic story telling in just a few 8 minute episodes. Of all the Anime I've tried recently, "KAGEWANI" takes the title ...

    monsters are something we see in movies. so what if they are real and what if those monster stories you hear in local towns are not only real but they are all linked to one monster that has been killing people for a long time. when there are monster there one man who will investigate and sometimes save people who are in danger. he wants to know why they exists and how to stop them. watch this ...
