The anime will be in an omnibus short format that will tell stories of the strange and bizarre in our world, including UFOs, cryptids, curses, ancient civilizations, supernatural powers, spiritual experiences, bizarre cases, different dimensions, and urban legends, told in a picture show style. The anime seeks to evoke the retro atmosphere of pulp horror stories that were popular in the '60s and '70s in magazines.

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.

That was obvious.

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 read more

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 read more

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.
