Anime Commentary Review

Yami Shibai: Japanese Ghost Stories 7 – Episode 11: Little Sister’s Room


Random Commentary:

  • God, if I ever saw a more cliche version of the “otaku” in any anime…
  • Why is he holding his arm like that while looking under the bed…?
  • That thing moves around like a cat.
  • How did they turn on the lights without opening the door to the room? Do the Japanese have the light switches on the outside?
  • Fat people can’t be fans of certain celebrities now? These girls are b*tches.
  • Gross, she looks like her brother but with a wig.


Final Thoughts:

This episode would’ve been a bit better if it hadn’t spent so much of its time showing us how unbelievably judgmental the two friends are and pretty much how much of a loser the guy is. He should’ve come out from under the bed and blown up on the sister for talking crap behind his back. But hey, not everyone can confront their siblings like I can.

I am a little annoyed that the creature got the brother and not the sister. She was a complete b*tch. Also, if her friend could really sense the creature in the room like she stated she could, why the hell did she agree to come over to the house anyway? What made her suddenly change her mind? And how convenient that she’s friends with someone who has a spirit/creature thing in the room, but whatever.

The end was my favorite. “I suppose he’ll do.” The amount of disappointment in that voice had me in stitches. It was so ridiculously anti-climactic that it was perfect. I was expecting to hear a crunch or an actual scream from the guy, but we just get this kind of gravely, witch-like voice that’s pretty much just settling with a sad meal. It’s like when I want steak, but I can’t afford it, so I settle with spam instead. I loved this ending.

Well, we’re almost done with this season. 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?).

  1. Great review! 😀

    I left this episode feeling very similarly to you. I didn’t realize it at first, but you’re right. Why would the psychic friend just randomly decide to come back to the house if she felt the spirit’s presence last time? Just for the sake of convenience in pointing out that there’s a spirit in the room right as it’s about to attack?

    I liked the initial ambiance of the spirit wooshing around in the background without any character doing the cliche ‘Whoa, what was that?!….Guess it was nothing.’ thing. It’s much more effective when we see it but no one’s reacting to it. Sadly, though, I think any ambiance that created at first was washed away by the end. The short shot of the spirit was creepy, but I was also disappointed that the guy ended up getting killed. His sister and her friends are just terrible. Why did the spirit ever take her if it’s been there so long?

    Oh well, I suppose he’ll do. lol

    • Oh, you’re right! The way they did that with the spirit sneaking around in the background without the guy noticing was certainly well-done and not as lame as their other ‘spirit’ scenes. They could’ve really done much more with this particular story, but oh well. I suppose he’ll do, lol. That quote is never going to get old since it was just so random yet perfect.
