Should You Watch Yamishibai: Japanese Ghost Stories?



With episodes only lasting 4 minutes, you get a quick fix with an incredibly creepy story. If movies like The Ring and The Grudge creeped you out, this series does the same with even more bizarre tales. What makes this show visually unique is its paper cut-out animation, which is something like that out of a pop-up storybook. You will love this unique display of ghost stories without sacrificing much of your time.
