Chris Stuckmann reviews Yamishibai: Japanese Ghost Stories, a short-form anime series focused on scary urban legends of Japanese culture.


Jack Ager says:

Kind of wanting to see your opinion on Attack on Titan. You know, like you
promised almost five months ago. Jk, probably slipped out of your
priorities. Part 2 does come out on Blu-Ray this month. I know what I’m
getting for Christmas this year :).

Griffin Watson says:

Chris, I like anime just like you. I’m not exactly an otaku but I do like
and appreciate the anime medium of story telling. So I beg you, pleeeaase
check out and review the anime called Baccano! It’s a gangster, alchemy,
dark comedy, period piece taking place in 1930’s America. It is funny,
bloody, witty, and a LOT of fun. It’s short, 13 episodes (16 including the
OVAs) Please watch it if you love great characters, hilarious dark comedy,
and inticate story telling. Thanks Chris! Love your videos! Have a good

Luna Myanth says:

Dude, you should TOTALLY see Mushishi. I just know you would love it, it
has horror a little and heart. very very episodic, but a small amount of
information is given to us about the main character every other episode.
Its a relaxing anime, and perfect to watch before bed. Here’s a summary:

The story features ubiquitous creatures called Mushi that often display
what appear as supernatural powers. It is implied that there are many more
lifeforms more primitive than “normal” living things such as animals,
plants, fungi and bacteria, and Mushi is the most primitive of all. Due to
their ethereal nature most humans are incapable of perceiving Mushi and are
oblivious to their existence, but there are a few who possess the ability
to see and interact with Mushi. One such person is Ginko, the main
character of the series. He employs himself as a Mushi master, traveling
from place to place to research Mushi and aid people suffering from
problems caused by them. The series is an episodic anthology in which the
only common elements among episodes are Ginko and the various types of

I honestly believe it is right up your ally. If only you could see this
message and know about this anime!

Son Goku says:

Great stuff! Now where is the Attack On Titan Review?


I thought I was an avid anime watcher, but I’d never heard of this one
before.. I fuckin love what hear hear about it and am gonna find a way to
watvh this tonight. Thanx Chris, seriously man, I love your channel and
your recommendations.

Matt Greer says:

Chris, check out and review 5 Centimeters Per Second. I think it will be
one of your favorite anime movies after you watch it, I really do.

Kristine Silmaro says:

Kino’s Journey is another small anime that no one really knows. It does
have 13 full-length episodes though. But it’s really thought provoking, and
sadly, it doesn’t get the attention it deserves. I mean, it’s not one of my
favorites personally, but I do like it, and I think it’s something that’d
appeal to you too, Chris.
Also, could you PLEASE review Baccano? It’s got tons of the stuff you love
(plus, it’s only 16 episodes). It has a very intricate, character driven
plot, and unique/interesting characters. It’s also has excellent comedy,
‘awesome music, exquisite animation and action sequences, and above
all…… the outstanding English dub. Seriously, if you’re gonna watch
Baccano, you need to watch it in the English dub. You just have to.

Anohana Chris, Anohana

Caleb Calvery says:

Do “Jojo’s Bizarre Adventures” Chris. you’ll love it for sure. It’s blowing
up all over japan.

SiiJayRS says:

When are you reviewing Attack on Titan homie?!

SBTWAnimeReviews says:

This is something I have not seen, and now I kinda want to for how
different it is from the norm.

If I may recommend a few Crunchyroll licensed titles for review:
-Ano Natsu de Matteru
-The Flower of Evil
-Usagi Drop
-Shin Sekai Yori


Please reveiw Steins;gate, it is a great show

seccibist says:

Chris i would love it if you saw baccano, such an underrated anime

Tainted Knives says:

WTF Stuckman?!?!? You promised ATTACK ON TITAN!!! C’mon man!!!

Riley Johnston says:

Love your reviews! 

DallasFlett says:

I’ve been recently trying to get into anime, but I can’t stand some of the
Can anyone recommend an anime that doesn’t have these tropes?:

A Tough/Mean girl with a sweet inside and perhaps an embarrassing secret.
A coward guy (usually the comic relief) who stands up for himself every now
and then.
A Main character dies every 3 episodes.
The Main character with an eating disorder (can eat like buckets upon
buckets of food)
Someone falls into another characters chest.
Lot’s of scenes with the character in class not paying attention (too busy
looking out the damn window)
Girls with huge boobs *optional (because this is kind of impossible)

tarjay35 says:

REVIEW PARANOIA AGENT. I know you’re a big Satoshi Kon fan and I feel it’s
one of his best works. Also, you can do Serial Experients:Lain, or

ratherlikehearts says:

Attack on Titan, Neon Genesis Evangelion (series or reboot), Lain, Ergo
Proxy – the list of suggestions can go on and on.

Can’t wait for the next anime review. 

Sheh B says:

fok this hipster anime shit. and ahaha he pays for crunchyroll XD its all
aboot pirating and torrenting bruh

M Alaru says:

This review actually reminded me of a short series by the name of
“Mononoke”. Not Princess Mononoke, by the way, but just Mononoke. It is a
mind-blowing Japanese horror-mystery and ART extravaganza. Like you said –
a moving picture book. This one is inspired by classical Japanese paintings
and it’s gorgeous to look at. The stories are actually great – 5 stories
that spread to 12 20-minute episodes total. Recommend!

Carlos Rangel says:

Thanks for reviewing more anime titles Chris. About a year ago, a friend
recommended me to watch the animated movie Gyo. I have not seeing that
title released in America, and I don’t believe it will ever be released on
this side of the world. It is one of the most disturbing animated movies I
have ever seeing. But I have to tell you, is one of the most interesting
concepts for a new zombie/sharks on land Attack/virus/world apocalypse
stories out there. I hope you have a chance to watch it. Is worth the hunt
if you can get your hands on it. 

Babs Seed says:

Hey Chris I’d recommend Boku no Pico. It’s a real heart-warming, family
friendly anime. 

Ersatz Person says:

/人◕ ‿‿ ◕人\

You should watch Madoka.

Suleman Saleem says:

Can someone recommend me some great horror anime? 

Hagar Levy Dotan says:

I think you should really watch Steins;Gate and Tokyo Ghoul.They are
FANTASTIC and I think you’d like them very much.

Zoozki says:

Nice Review! Can you review JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure? 

Mexlycan Filmico says:

I like Sooby Doo……….. the moose camp story.

blinkatreyu says:

Chris, please please please watch Steins;Gate. It’s one of the greatest
animes ever made. It starts slow but gains pace as you go on has the best
well thought out ending. Very rewarding. Definitely my all time personal

Domenick boucher says:

I think The Ghost stories dub is the best.

SilverVeil says:

Most of the stories gave me goosebumps and some of the jump scares really
freaked me out lol

Anders M. Johansen says:

Chris, you might like this short film I found a couple years ago; its a
darker Grimm’s version of red riding hood story, done in the same style of
this series

If you feel like Checking out its Red Riding Hood by Granfaloon

Venser says:

I’ve seen it a year ago. It didn’t like it much but you can’t go wrong if
you give it a try since it’s so short. The only that stayed with me for a
while was Zambai. To me that one was really creepy because the men had no
motive to hurt him (aside from jealousy).
