Synopsis

Once again, the mysterious storyteller draws in the ears of any willing to listen to his macabre tales of madness—ones that could happen to anyone, no matter who they might be.

The ghastly stories delve into the cases of teenagers testing their courage at an abandoned home; children navigating nefarious family traditions; malicious apparitions haunting the lives of innocent people; individuals helplessly watching their loved ones slowly go insane; a woman growing increasingly concerned when her husband's behavior changes after eating something odd; and an evil snowman or two. These chilling tales promise to leave no soul unstirred in the most disturbing way yet.

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (12/13 eps)
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, ...

If you thought season 3 was the worst, you might want to think again. Y'know it tells you so much when one would rather watch the shitshow of a season 3 to whatever-the-fuck this was. I'm beyond pissed as I'm writing this. Basically this abomination in a nutshell:
Narration was off through the whole season. It's like the narrator saw how godawful this season was from miles ago and didn't want to narrate it. The narration is extremely random one line narration.


Some examples from actual episodes: "a story of a family" "a story of a office worker" "a story of a college student" that's it. ...

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.

The first 3 seasons are astounding, truly something that made me shiver and look over my shoulder and now.... Season 8 is the weak, heat tinted wind that blows through the garden on an extremely hot day and merely taunts you with the expectation of coolness whilst slowly cooking you faster.

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