Please don't be bad like the second season. I'm surprised this is even getting another season.

Good, Yami Shibai is a very interesting series. I wish there were more horror animes, both Kowabi and Kagewani this season aren't good. But, 100 characters remind me of Hyaku Monogatari, will it have a episode about?.

I enjoyed the first season, but I thought the second season was a bit disappointing. It wasn't as creepy as the first season. Still, I'm glad that they're doing a third season. I really do like the cutout animation style.

I hope. its better than season 2. I watched 1 and 2 back to back and 2 is definitely tamer than the first.

Now I only need to watch the other two seasons...

Great, I'll definitely watch. Hope it's as good as the first season. Second season was a big disappointment for me..

Ohhh!! This is amazing!!! I never finished up the second season because I didn't have much time to watch it, and if I did, it would always be at night and that's 2spooky4me. But I'll catch up for sure! Loved Yami Shibai!

The first season of Yami Shibai was one of the few horror anime that really creeped me out. I didn't find the second as scary but still alright. I'm pretty excited for this, hopefully it'll be more like the first.

Part of me hoped for some way return of YamiShibai1 and Kagewani ep director(since Yamishibai S1 was the strongest part of it), but alas still great news.

Hey, going for urban legends will do good for the series, if they truly introduce 100 characters then we'll have quite the feast. :)

I really enjoyed the first season, so I'm not upset about this.

This season you have 2 horror anime: Kagewani and Kowabon, so we aren't that bad.

Also Toei Animation somewhere in he future will adapt a 15 episodes horror story:
Yep yep, even though I haven't try Kagewani yet, I am looking forward to watching it.

Thanks for the information, I didn't know that another horror series is coming up soon. I wonder how Toei will animate this, is it gonna be like Mononoke, or is it gonna be like Kuuchuu Buranko.. or something else. I can't wait to see how they will handle it.

But still, horror anime is not very common, we don't often get one, and when we do, it will take a while until the next one comes. It is just not a very popular genre.

Speaking of horror series, even though it's more supernatural than horror it'd be great to have Ghost Hunt season 2. That is one of the very few horror series that genuinely terrorized me. I still remember that scene where Mai was dragged underground and was about to get decapitated alive.. just shameless advertising trying to appeal to horror fans here ;P

Please be better than the second season.

How many did the previous seasons have?
Less... LOL
I guess this season will be more than just 13 episodes.

Season 1 had me jumping at some moments. Season 2 had the creepy atmosphere as season 1, but it wasn't scary nor did it make me jump. Still a good short though

I'll give it another chance. I mean, season one was great, it was just season two that made me shrug.
