With six seasons of the Yamishibai: Japanese Ghost Stories anime series out there and it being something of a summertime regular thing, the seventh season is set to hit on July 7th, 2019. Crunchyroll has now announced their pickup of the series with plans for it to arrive that day at 3:30 pm ET. Availability for it is solid as it’s open to viewers worldwide outside of Asia. It looks like the main staff and cast are coming back for it. Crunchyroll previously simulcast the six seasons.
Kenichi Sugimoto is directing with scripts by Hiromu Kumamoto and Mitsuhiro Sasaki among others. ILCA is producing the animation while Kanji Tsuda is serving as the narrator with a rotating cast of actors.

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!
