Yami Shibai, Kowabon Recommendations
Both are short-format and of horror stories each episode. The animation for Yami Shibai is a bit better but if you're looking for more horror, these are both filled with jump scares.

Both are horror anime that have individual stories for each short episode. Yami Shibai and Kowabon each feature an art style very unique themselves which adds to the already creepy atmosphere. Also, each anime has an ED that breaks the tension from the show, but it's a nice way to calm down if you were extra frightened. Overall, both anime are very, very similar and good and quick watches.
Both are horror stories with animation styles unusual and short duration in each chapter.
Both anime are short horrors with 13 episodes, Yami Shibai has 4 minute episodes while Kowabon has 3 minute episodes
Both anime feature a unique art style, I prefer Yami Shibai over Kowabon because the art style complements the horror more.
There are no recurring characters in both anime for the most part.
Where they differ is in the theme.
Kowabon is about the Supernatural seen through a lens.
Yami Shibai is about a storyteller telling scary stories to some kids.
In my opinion.
Yami Shibai 7/10
