Yami Shibai wanted to be a show with legends, but today it is nothing more than a myth forgotten by its quality that falls more than long American series.

It is already the third attempt of union between the new studio Drawiz and the ILCA. Since then, Yami Shibai 7 and Ninja Collection have been produced, but they have not yielded good reviews, especially when it comes to what is the biggest problem with horror stories: textual quality. Yami Shibai was never a franchise that honored the suspense and horror genre, because no matter what season, something always prevented the anime from really being a good read more

Oh where, oh where do I begin with Yami Shibai season 8. I've been following this anime since I found it during season 6 and I've binged through it quite a few times and I'm just so disappointed.

I didn't expect too much from this season — since season 4, Yami Shibai has been slowly declining read more

Its a 5 minute anime and one should not expect too much. But,oh well...

I remember a long time ago when i was excited for the first season to be released considering there was not too many(or better said,any at all)horror anime and looked at least creative.The first season had some legitimally scary episodes and the third season had an awesome little plot twist.

But truly scary episodes are becoming more scarce with each passing season. Their scare tactic is basically putting "normal people" in scary situations by dumb chance and having them suffer the consequences of their bad luck. All fine and dandy,but the show depends read more

If you've seen any of the previous Yami Shibai seasons, you know what's in store for you: short, compact horror stories. Unfortunately, this season has been quite disappointing. There was so much potential to show the audience something scary, but they opted to leave it to our imaginations. Sure, it works for some stories, but not all of them! I don't know if this is down to budget, lazy writing/animation, or perhaps it's being aired during a time slot when children can see it, but compared with the earlier seasons, this is too tame for my taste. I remember seeing several creepy and ghastly depictions, read more
