More of these weak horror stories? I'm glad it's at least a short series. Guess I'll watch this season as well.

This one might be one of the better seasons again cause Nostalgia can hit people hard in horror.

I really just wish they'd write more stories about the 'Storyteller' character. I think the last time they did was the finale of season 3 or 4, like 8 or 9 years ago at this point. At least the previous season had a homage to the original park setting. I think Yami Shibai now is used as a sort of vehicle to get young, up-and-comers into the animation business. So more seasons are a plus if that's the case.
