With the third season of Yamishibai out there these days, Sentai Filmworks is gearing up to release the first two seasons in a compact set coming up on April 19th, 2016. There’s not been a lot of short-form show releases here so we’re pretty excited about this one. The set will bring out the first two seasons of the series on both DVD and Blu-ray priced at $24.98 and $34.98 respectively as each set is 117 minutes. It’s in its original Japanese with English subtitles only and now we’ve got a look at the finalized packaging and disc design for them. It definitely puts the right horror feeling out there.
Plot concept: Ghosts. Curses. Demons. If you crave tales of terror and seek mysteries that defy explanation, go to the park at 5. That’s when the man in the yellow mask will arrive with his kamishibai, the paper theater, to tell his sinister stories of Japan’s darkest side. But be warned: this storyteller’s works may do more than simply send shivers down your spine. Because the more fascinated you become with the supernatural, the more the supernatural may become fascinated with you. Enter a world where the closest of friends can become the deadliest of enemies, where the most mundane of objects can become hair-raising nightmares, and not even one’s own family can be trusted to remain human. Dare to pierce the veil of darkness and a realm of ultimate horror awaits as you discover YAMISHIBAI – JAPANESE GHOST STORIES!
