Yami Shibai: Japanese Ghost Stories 7 – Episode 4: Paintings


Random Commentary:

  • Is this type of exhibit real? It’s right up my alley of creepy and gross art.
  • God, he has the hair of a shoujo anime/manga love interest.
  • He’s not even on the camera app… I call BS.
  • She warns him not to and he still does. Of course.
  • OH! I was waiting for the “oshimai” after her face was revealed. I was seriously going to start complaining about how quickly it had ended.


Final Thoughts:

This one was much better than the last one in terms of sticking to the genre. It had the element of the unknown and played around with it a little bit and managed to keep it throughout its entirety. The pictures in the gallery also reminded me of Ito Junji’s art, so that was a huge plus for me.

Of course, as is painfully typical of our horror story protagonists, especially when it comes to Yami Shibai, he felt the irresistible urge to ignore the woman’s very warranted warnings and continue to be a millennial and post the pictures on social media.

Oh, and I did love that part at the end where the woman was kind of like, “What did I f*cking tell you?” It didn’t do anything to scare me, but it was not too bad of an episode overall. Onwards to the next!




I’m a 27-year-old story-telling fan. I enjoy all forms of media, including anime, manga, literature, films, video games, music, and everything else in between. I’ve been writing short stories and novels for myself as a hobby for as long as I can remember. I’ve never considered myself good enough to become published, but I’m hoping to change that someday. I’m a huge sucker for characters, so that’s usually what will make or break a majority of stories for me. Other than that, I spend my days working and trying to pay my bills (how fun, right?).
