8. Yami Shibai

yami shibai

Yami Shibai centres around urban myths in Japan. Each tale tells of a story that really, could happen to anyone, even you. The animation style is unique in that it mimics the story telling using paper art, kamishibai. This combined with the skillful and spooky narration of Kanji Tsuda brings the scary scenes to life and provides the perfect setup for some frightening moments. Watch alone at night, preferably with the lights turned off, for maximum scare effect.

Yami Shibai returns back for a fourth season to scare the pants or creep out its viewers. Considering the cold and darkness of winter, it’s pretty appropriate time to give yourself a scare with this anime.

The anime is slated to premiere sometime in January 2017.
