Comparing Ghost Stories and Natsume Yuujinchou reveals a similar set of plot points that makes the recommendation compelling. First similarity is the presence of a \"guardian\" character in both series -- Nyanko-sensei in NY and Amanojaku in GS. Both of them are powerful ghosts/monsters, but they conceal themselves as cats and aid the protagonist(s) throughout the series. Their interactions with the protagonist(s) sometimes bring about a humorous scene, and sometimes a touching sight. Another is the existence of an inherited spellbook in each series -- Yuujiinchou in NY and mom's ghost diary in GS -- that guides the protagonist(s) through their encounters with the ghosts. Combining these elements with the familiar monster-of-the-week format, you get each of these two series. Liked Nyanko-sensei and Reiko-san, or Amanojaku and the spell book Take a look at the other. If you only liked the series for the relaxed pace or the high-spirited kids, this recommendation is not for you.
Yamishibai: Japanese Ghost Stories also known in Japan as Yami Shibai (闇芝居, Yami Shibai, lit. Dark Play) and Theater of Darkness is an ongoing Japanese anime series. The first season was directed by Tomoya Takashima, with scripts written by Hiromu Kumamoto and produced by ILCA. Each episode was animated to mimic the kamishibai method of story-telling. The series is organized into a collection of shorts with each episode being only a few minutes in length. Each episode features a different tale based on myths and urban legends of Japanese origin.
The first season premiered on TV Tokyo on July 14, 2013, and ran for thirteen episodes until September 29, 2013; it spawned a host of merchandise and a mobile game while also receiving mixed reactions at the end of its broadcast. A second season aired from July 6, 2014, to September 28, 2014, and was directed by both Takashi Shimizu and Noboru Iguchi along with scripts written by Shōichirō Masumoto. The third season aired between January 11, 2016, and April 3, 2016. A fourth season aired between January 16, 2017 and March 26, 2017. A fifth season aired on July 2, 2017 and ended on October 1, 2017. A sixth season aired on July 6, 2018. A seventh season aired on July 7, 2019. An eighth season aired on January 10, 2021. A ninth season aired on July 11, 2021 with the theme of the episodes being based on the Chinese Zodiac. A tenth season started airing in January 2022.
Every week at 5 p.m. an old man in a yellow mask (the kamishibaiya or kamishibai narrator) shows up at a children's playground and tells them ghost stories based on myths and urban legends of Japanese origin. The man tells the stories on the back of his bicycle using a traditional kamishibai (紙芝居, Paper Drama) method and features a new tale each week. In the third season, instead of the old man in a yellow mask and his kamishibai stage, a boy (later revealed to be the kamishibaiya in the form of a child) sits on a playground slide and sings, \"Friends on that side, come to this side... Friends on this side, go to that side...\" as he draws illustrations of the creatures in the stories. At the end of each episode, the narrator's mask sings the closing song to him, multiplying in number as each episode ends with the final one being worn on the boy's face. As of Season 4, the kamishibaiya returns, telling the stories to children at a playground every 5 p.m., going back to the original format of Seasons 1 and 2 (voice actors are different every episode). In Season 5, the children are not seen playing on the swings. Instead, they gather to the call of the old man in silhouette. In Season 6, the old man tells his stories in a forest instead of a school. A shadow takes the form of the old man then puts on the mask as he introduces the story. In Season 7, the old man tells his stories in a creepy apartment. In Season 8, he tells his stories at a busy urban intersection, surrounded by vague shadowy passersby. In Season 9, he tells the stories to the animals from the Chinese Zodiac. The tenth season has the narrator slowly making his announcement in an empty playground only to stop halfway; the season finale is based on Hyakumonogatari Kaidankai.
The 13-episode first season premiered on July 14, 2013 on TV Tokyo during the station's 26:15 (02:15 JST) time slot, which technically resulted in the episodes airing on the days following the ones scheduled. The series was later aired on AT-X. Crunchyroll also acquired both seasons of the series for online simulcast streaming in select parts of the world with English subtitles.

As a historical court drama, Raven of the Inner Palace sets up viewers' expectations for a series filled with romance and intrigue. While there are slight hints of romance between Shouxue and Emperor Gaojun, intrigue has definitely taken the dominant role in the series as each episode has Shouxue unraveling mysteries behind various ghost stories.
With its ghost-of-the-week formula, it's not surprising that elements of horror would sneak their way into the otherwise elegant setting. From the haunting Gaojun experiences due to the Empress Dowager's curse to the creepy tale of Episode 9's unexpected ghost visitor, Raven of the Inner Palace isn't afraid to dip its toes into the horror genre. Episode 10 especially delivers a terrifying tale, continuing the series' surprising use of horror themes and ending on an even more disturbing cliffhanger.
Episode 10 opens with a scene featuring the series' creepiest ghost so far. With music from an antique lute playing in the background, an antiques dealer presents an interesting find: a cloth mask possessed by a spirit. When the potential customer dons the mask, he sees a hunched figure that turns toward him at the sound of the lute's music, approaching him until he fills the customer's vision. After hearing the story of the mask, Emperor Gaojun acquires it to give to Shouxue, as he believes she has an interest in ghosts.
Though aggravated by his assumption, Shouxue sets out to solve the mystery behind the possessed mask, finding that the agitated spirit belongs to a man who was so obsessed with playing the lute that he utterly neglected himself for its sake, ultimately killing himself when deprived of his beloved instrument. The story behind the haunting is no more brutal than the other backstories explored throughout the series, Episode 10's presentation of the ghost is particularly creepy and continues the horror themes that have become more prominent in recent episodes.
Though the ghost of the obsessed lute player is creepy enough, the cliffhanger scene at the end of Episode 10 truly demonstrates the series' descent into horror. As Wei Qing discusses his concern over Shouxue's relationship with the Emperor with Wen Ying and Dan Hai, they stumble across a shocking scene in the dark forest. The three eunuchs discover a mutilated body sprawled under a fallen tree.
Earlier in the episode, a young woman walks in that same forest with the mysterious and threatening figure known as Owl. Owl appears docile in the scene, and the young woman seems to harbor affection or sympathy for him, as she blushes and offers to help him carry a bucket. However, according to the episode's cliffhanger, she is brutally murdered, and given Owl's sinister nature as revealed in previous episodes, he is the likely culprit. While his reason for killing her is unknown, his plans for Shouxue as well as his disturbing powers suggest that a wicked motive lies behind the brutal murder.
Though viewers who had hoped for a swoon-worthy romance from Raven of the Inner Palace might be disappointed, the series' intermingling of drama, mystery and horror and its quiet yet profound plot makes it a unique experience. With only a few episodes left, fans can hope for more answers regarding the apparent murder -- and the series' sinister antagonist who is plotting Shouxue's death as well. 781b155fdc
