  • Yamishibai: Japanese Ghost Stories
    The animation for Yamishibai: Japanese Ghost Stories is very different from what I am used to, but I enjoyed it. The art work is lovely. The stories are short, but do not let that mislead you. They are creepy in their own right. This seems to be the perfect combination of art and narrative for when you are seeking a quick little chilling tale. A fun watch!

  • It's short, but it seems interested in me.
    I love each story in this anime. They also have 3 seasons now, and I hope that they will make more seasons in the future!!! Love it! Thanks CR for letting us watch it! Most of the ending isn't happy, but it is horror, so it makes sense! I wonder if these stories are real or not? Just like the show in US.

  • Really Scary but Fun
    Yamishibai was the very first time that I actually liked being scared. The first and second episode made it a little more creepy than scary. The 'Hair' episode made me scared for the first time, and I actually liked being scared from that. That episode remind me of the Okiku doll.

  • Pity I can't add my screenshot. Great start to S3!!!
    OMG....Bravo to the start of Season 3. Like the others I miss Narrator-san but I will give the new intro/outros chance to grow on me. (Not Literally..Thankyou). I am looking forward to ep2 so are my goosebumps.

  • Its story time kids.
    It's funny how the simplest of ideas work pretty well.
    Yamishibai is the animated equivalent of telling campfire ghost stories. The only difference is how it takes advantages of using visuals and atmospheric settings.
    The stories are well written, unique, and some will stick with you.
    Also some endings are open to interpretation which can make it even more creepy.
    Probably my favorite part ...

  • Anime can be scary too.
    Tales, stories, and jump scary …oh my. This is a good show for Halloween. The animation is different but a welcome change. It starts out slow for about three episodes but gets better. It was fun to see the club react to the show. Some even said that they will finish watching it at home.

  • Outstandingly original, refreshingly terrifying.
    This show is amazing. The animation is beautiful, the atmosphere/ambiance is just great. I love the writing as well! I just signed up for CrunchyRoll premium last night, and I have already watched seasons 1 and 2 TWICE. I hope there will be more!

  • Absolutely Terrifying
    I don't know if I love this or hate it. I watched the first one right before going to bed. Not a good idea. This is the perfect thing to put on Halloween to creep out your friends. I'm always in the mood for creepy shows the month of October and this one hasn't let me down.

  • Very Great Scary Stories
    This anime is brings out the creepy atmosphere, especially who gets scared easily, and at the end of it will bring you some frightening or shocking ending you might or might not have expected. From the first episode to the last, I recommend you to watch AT night as this anime is aired at 26:15 every midnight of Sunday.
