Yami Shibai: Japanese Ghost Stories 7 – Episode 8: Cough


Random Commentary:

  • There are some amazing elderly people, and others are just… yep.
  • Maybe I should be that obnoxious toward my upstairs neighbors, who walk like they’ve been eternally cursed with freaking lead feet.
  • The way he coughs, though, oh my God… lol.
  • That phone looks like the ones you give a three-year-old to play with, I can’t with it.


Final Thoughts:

I’m laughing. I’m legitimately laughing so hard at a “horror” episode. I spent half of the episode, which is honestly only about two minutes, just giggling to myself like a schoolgirl. The premise of the episode can be very sad if taken to heart because in reality, it’s a very sick, old man slowly succumbing to death all alone. Unfortunately, though, the way that it’s portrayed and delivered is nothing short of hilarious. The voice actor for the old man made his cough sound like he was trying to laugh at a joke, but it hurt him to do so. The way he bursts into their apartment to yell at them immediately after passing away was also done like a very cheesy haunted house. It was all just so poorly done on the horror level that it turned out as a joke instead. This is not what I wanted out of this series, but I, at least, thoroughly enjoyed myself with this one and got a really good laugh out of it. Well, 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?).
