Yami Shibai

Yamashibai : Japanese Ghost Stories; Theater of Darkness; 闇芝居

Akin to TV Tokyo’s Folktales from Japan, YAMISHIBAI: JAPANESE GHOST STORIES takes a narrative format to explore the rich occult history from Japan, moreover, the storytelling techniques in this brand new series will mimic kamishibai – a traditional storytelling technique inspired by the artistic usage of paper figures and scrolls.

“Yamishibai is a picture-story style of animation whose motif is surrounded and based off the rumors, and urban legends throughout the history of Japan.”
