Japanese Culture Told Beautifully
This anime is about the culture of Japan and the moralistic stories that tend to accompany the yokai of that land. It's an early 2000s anime so the art isn't anywhere near as polished as many tend to be used to anymore. The voice acting is also a little rough, but not too shabby for a studio that wasn't as big back in the day. It's aged well! I definitely like it and it's perfect for the Halloween season!

Very spooky moralistic treat
This series shows the work of horror anime and storytelling to their creepiest degree. The artwork is very shadowy, disfigured and garish which works within these stories that are bizarre tales of bloodlust and psychological disfigurement coinciding with the age of the Samurai. The morality is kept in check with the main character who is the innocent factor in the whole macabre series following three magickal beings of death, dismay, and destruction.

Short and sweet
A good short installment anime. Honestly I watched/listened to them all daily while making breakfast and it was perfect for that.
Entertaining, not too heavy, some good humor, and some cultural flavor in the way of the ghost stories and demonology in Japanese lore.

Great Story
This is a great series. Believe it's based on some short stories (100 tales of karma). The dub isn't bad. All around, would highly recommend.

Tough to follow
These episodes are tough to follow and in some cases I can't make head nor tail of it. It is still entertaining to watch, but some of the sequences really confuse you. In some cases it seems like they just threw something against the wall. Again, its okay to watch.

My favorite anime
This series is wonderful. Dark and sometimes funny, it pulls no punches. It tears the mask off and makes you look at the darkness, but there is hope, however. A brilliant exploration of the soul, good and bad. Also, the art style is absolutely beautiful.

Amazing stories and very unique drawing
A very beautifully drawn animation. it is more like ancient style black ink painting than simple manga style drawing. The stories are very fascinating.

Good Japanese folklore anime
Watched all the episodes over the course of a couple days. Definitely worth the watch. Art style is unique and the stories for each episode are well done. My only complaint is that the subtitles have pretty glaring inaccuracies at times. For someone who watches with subtitles, this may be an issue, and as such, I have dropped one star till that is fixed. Still a really good anime though
