Late at night, in a clearing within a dark fog-filled forest, there sits a kamishibai storyboard. A visitor approaches, and suddenly, the fog recedes. A shape begins to take form beside the board—this figure is the masked Storyteller, who once again starts to spin tales of horror and despair.

The events described in these macabre tales might happen to anyone, even your neighbors or friends: a group of girls bully one of their members in a cave, only to find themselves the victims of a dark presence; a boy with scopophobia moves to the countryside, but he still cannot escape the eyes of others; a man has a window that won't stay closed, and is the recipient of strange phone calls; and a salaryman steals an umbrella on a rainy day, but this seemingly insignificant act leads to consequences he never expected. Visitors may enjoy the Storyteller's offerings, but they should also be vigilant so that they don't wind up as the subjects of his next story.

Proportions and anatomy across all thirteen short stories checked out. Some episodes the art style fit nicely and added to the mood such as episode 11. The somewhat gritty art style in episode 11 added to the sense of cold and ...

My first ever review of an anime,so please consider my misakes,because I am very bad at writing professional reviews.I am mostly going to write a review with a little bit of unprofessional degree.
I may or may not leave some spoilers here.And oh,please consider,that I am not from English speaking country,so there will be some mediocre spelling mistakes.Thanks for your understanding!

Story: 10/7
These stories was way more different from the ones I had ever seen in this anime franchise.I can say,that I almost loved it way more storywise than the 1st season.The other seasons were a little bit too...obvious for my taste.They were not actually that scary ...
