Average Rating

A young boy silently sketches out the forms of the horrors that dwell in his mind. During this adventure into the occult and mysterious, he tells tales that involve dreams of a person with a muscular arm that you must not look at, a hospital with a room that holds a grim secret, and a visit to an eerily silent taxidermy museum. These tales and more are compiled in Yami Shibai 3. Presented in an art style similar to kamishibai storytelling, this horror series stays true to the gruesome and creepy trend that is prominent in Yami Shibai and Yami Shibai 2nd Season.

Takes everything great from the first two seasons and throws them out the window in favor of horrible, no effort “jumpscares”. Skip.


Previous seasons were better but it’s ok.


I really enjoy the short horror story anthology. Can be hit and miss. Overall, I like this show!


Relies too much on spooky monsters (which aren’t even that spooky tbh) instead of delivering overall creepy stories.


“Not as good as the first season but eh, it’s kind of fun”




little better



    "We, who hurt each other so terribly, will sit here licking each other's wounds. We damaged goods will each seek the other out in comfort. If you are to die tomorrow, I'm fine with my life ending then as well. But if you want to live for me for one more day,I'll go on living with you today as well. And thus begins a tale of kindred, bound by their scars. Soaked in red and written in black, a story of blood. One of which I'll never speak. Our very own, precious as it is, story of scars. And I have no intention of reciting it to anyone."
