Tucked away in the darkest depths of this world, tales of the bizarre and the supernatural quietly unfold. These inexplicable stories are chronicled throughout the pages of a certain strange encyclopedia, sheltered within a crumbling, decrepit building. Do you dare to open its cover and experience the horrors firsthand?
Each of the macabre tales held within the book's pages details some unusual, surreal experiences that often come to a gruesome end. A man searches for his adulterous wife, only to find himself at the mercy of otherworldly visitors; a boy befriends a snowman who harbors a sinister secret; crop circles suddenly form on a family farm, created by some unexpected visitors; hidden in plain sight, menacing mechanical beings continue on undetected. In all of these horrifying stories, nothing is as simple as it seems, revealing a terrifying darkness that perhaps might have been best left alone.
Sekai no Yami Zukan has exceeded all of my expectations so far. The stories shared will have you on the edge of your seat. This anime goes above and beyond, sharing stories that include extraterrestrial beings and snowmen that could really use a shave. While only three episodes in, this anime still has a ton of untapped potential.
Being one of the few individuals brave enough to watch this, I recommend you watch at your own risk. As Sekai no Yami Zukan will through a multitude of twists and surprises at you that you will never expect.
Sekai no Yami Zukan really doesn't ask for much
except for 5 minutes of your precious time and if you can look past the current low score of this anime that is dropping as fast as my dignity when I fap to loli porn, then this could be the anime for you.
Sekai no Yami Zukan... I don't know what It wanted to be?
As far as the story goes, this anime gathers all of those uninteresting and cheap conspiracy theories and creepypastas in to one place, with one of the most boring storytelling I've seen in awhile and tries to sell it as a HORROR. Not only that, but it's also a short anime, which means that every episode is around 4 minutes, what a nice concept!
Moving on to the production value of this masterpiece, let's start off with the animation, and I've to say that... It's so BORING. I don't know who thought that
using "a picture show style" would be a good idea for something that was supposed to be a "horror". I know, they tried to make this one feel like those stories in 60's and 70's, but c'mon, couldn't they have done it better? Sound isn't better either (these voice actors are top notch!).
And lastly, the enjoyment. And oddly enough, I kinda enjoyed it? I was laughing my ass out when I saw the first episode and each and every episode is doing better job at being weirdly funny. Maybe because of the production value, plot or what creators wanted it to be, I'm not quite sure.
To sum it up, Sekai no Yami Zukan is trashy short, but despite that I'll keep on watching it till it finishes airing because I'm a masochist.
Sekai no Yami Zukan is a very short anime that I never imagined I would watch it when it was announced. I started getting tired of the "20-minute anime", and I gave a chance to this one. And the truth is that some episodes are really really disappointing, because the plot and the stories are so confusing that you need the explanation of the narrator at the end of the episode. But there are some stories that are really catchy, you know, I loved the third episode, I've never seen something like that, something SO COOL (I want that car muahahahahah). So, to finish my
first review (and sorry for any mistake or phrasal construction), I'm gonna tell you to give a chance to this anime, not to watch THE BEST ANIME EVER, but to experience a show that is "funny" and don't last more than 5 minutes, and you even can enrich your general culture, since this anime is based on urban legends and things like that.
I saw this is the seasonal anime listings and got really hype because there aren't very many horror anime being made any more.
I was really disappointed by the first episode because it actually made me cringe, then burst into a laughing fit.
For real, this anime is unintentionally hilarious.
It has the story telling prowess of a middleschooler who does creepy pasta readings.
Every episode (short) is going to be a new "horror" story reading with very poor slideshow visuals. Hardly animated at all, it's seriously a slideshow.
Music is bad, it's just barely creepy ambiance, and the voice acting is funny, not scary/good.
show is legitimately terrible, it made me laugh, right?
And the episodes are shorts, so I don't feel I've wasted my time watching them.
I'm going to keep watching as this show airs, (I'm writing this as of four episodes being aired,) but I can confidently say that Sekai no Yami Zukan is REALLY bad, and will stay really bad.
