Anime Review: Yamishibai – Japanese Ghost Stories

Studio: ILCA
Genres: Folklore, Horror, Supernatural
Number of episodes: 13 episodes (x 3 seasons)

 

Summary:
Every week at 5 p.m., an old man in a yellow mask shows up at a children’s playground and tells them ghost stories based on myths and urban legends of Japanese origin. The man tells the stories on the back of his bicycle using a traditional kamishibai (Paper Drama) method and features a new tale each week.
In the third season, instead of the old man in a yellow mask and his kamishibai stage, a boy (later revealed to be the narrator in the form of a child) sits on a playground slide and sings, “Friends on that side, come to this side… Friends on this side, go to that side…” as he draws illustrations of the creatures in the stories. At the end of each episode, the narrator’s mask sings the closing song to him, multiplying in number as each episode ends.
