Excited children gather around the enigmatic masked Storyteller once more. His unique kamishibai storytelling draws them into tales of fear and dread. These are dark and foreboding stories, which could happen to anyone…
This season has tales of a salaryman who buries a dead cat, only to be haunted soon after; a college student and her cheap new apartment that hides a ghastly secret; boys exploring an abandoned haunted house before coming across a strange fish tank; a man who finds himself on the wrong bus, and in more danger than he thought possible; and a young couple’s visit to an amusement park, which suddenly takes a dark turn. All these stories and more await in Yami Shibai 4.

The stories in season 4 weren’t great either, most of them felt a bit dumb. The animation of this season and potentially a lot of season 3 was severely worse and was obviously just a series of pictures with very little animation present, I say bad animation doesn’t matter but lazy animation makes a show feel a whole lot worse. People don’t always like old 90’s shows for the animation but a lot of it is unnoticeable to me, this is just blatantly cost cutting and it’s not fun to watch. This series also had live action segments, which I do admit did have better animation, but it completely ruined the immersion for me and felt extremely forced and extremely unnecessary.
