  • 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.

    Short, Creepy, & really fun to watch
    The episodes are short, but pack in just enough stuff to make them scary. The animation looks like cut-out drawings. While simple, I think it only adds to the creepiness. I'm really enjoying this series. I honestly feel like I'm one of those kids at the intro, listening to the masked old man tell ghost stories.

    [Note] While it's definitely creepy, I haven't seen an episode with anything ...

  • 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.

  • Creepy, creepy, creepy
    First season was short and creepy. Second season was still short, but not as creepy. Either way, both seasons are short and will evoke a scare out of you. Although... the second season is a bit nicer overall... to the viewer's imagination. If you're easily scared though, I don't recommend watching it in the dark at night.

    Its ok, nothing special.
    An okay anime, its attempt to show horror stories with style of animation is only as good the stories themselves, which sadly were lacking severely in some places. A few of the stories were decent as horror stories but most were quite poor. So overall my rating for this one is 5/10. It's average and good and bad, that's all it is.
