    Amazed how much I like this!
    I first saw this while browsing through the shows and was caught by the mention of Ghost Stories in the title. Looking into it more I thought i'd be a boringly animated, simple sequence of people just talking and a really in depth story, so I walked away from it.
    After a while, I figured I'd just give it a try. And my, I fell in love with it.
    Each story is written so perfectly, giving you a ...

  • An Anecdote of Mirth
    Yamishibai is collection of short tales, each about 5min in length that give ghastly encounters of life, death and beyond. Each episode delivers a unique twist or idea different from the others. Many play off longer stories or traditional novels, condensed and created for a child's attention span. This also creates the novelty of the idea of 5min stories. It leaves the watcher enthralled and ...

  • Pretty Spooky 4/5 ..
    Its pretty good, art style is alot different. Some episodes aren't very scary while others are, I'd give it a try though, episodes are fairly short and entertaining. 4/5 because it isn't the greatest but it isn't bad either, it's fairly good. Lots of tension and suspense for sure.

  • Nice Stories Keep up the Good Work
    These aren't the most scariest ghost stories in the world or the best, these stories meant to be traditional. So stop hating because it's too short or the animation isn't the best, The Stories can be a little corny some-times but its interesting.

    Don't Judge A Book By Its Cover!
    I Was about to click off on the first episode because of the art style, but i saw how short the episodes were and that it looked kind of creepy so i stuck with it for 4 episodes and now me, my mom, and my brother are in love with this short anime.

    Don't judge a book by its cover...

    Bueno para pasar el rato, y en ocasiones, espeluznante ;)
    Un corto de poco menos de 5 minutos, con un estilo de animación un poco peculiar (estilo teatro de marionetas) pero bastante agradable y que encaja perfectamente. Tal vez no dé mucho miedo en pleno transcurrir del día, pero si existen las condiciones adecuadas (12am+, luz-televisor apagados y con tus audífonos), puede llegarte a sacar un susto ;).

    Worried about it being too scary?
    I found these stories creepy enough to give me shivers, but not seriously upsetting. There is no gore to speak of. Even if you don't always handle scary stuff well, you should still be able to enjoy the series and learn a few Japanese cultural references while you're at it.

    This horror show wouldn't scar anybody.
    Basic campfire kind of stuff, with instant =-classic closing lines like "You'll never leave this village ali-" . File it under just-for-fun.

  • Very unique but not scary
    It's a good show but it is really short. The shows are 5 minutes long which is good to pass the time. It's not really scary, so far the 3rd episode is my favorite. It's very neat and creative I would recommend people to watch this show. It's creepy but not scary.
