Grudge & Zaborgar Directors Make 2nd Yamishibai Anime Season

posted on by Karen Ressler
The Grudge's Takashi Shimizu involved in this summer's continuation of horror series

The official website for the Yami Shibai (Yamishibai: Japanese Ghost Stories) horror anime announced on Monday that the project will continue this summer. The original series will also re-air beginning in April. The broadcast dates and times have not yet been announced.

Staff members in the second anime season include directors Takashi Shimizu (The Grudge, live-action Kiki's Delivery Service) and Noboru Iguchi (Nuigulumar Z, Karate-Robo Zaborgar), as well as scriptwriter Shōichirō Masumoto (King of the Escape).

The original series of anime shorts featured six-minute horror stories based on urban legends. The shorts inspired by Shōwa-era illustrated paper theater productions aired last summer, with Tomoya Takashima directing off scripts by Hiromu Kumamoto. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired.
