This seems like it would be a "hit or miss" series. It is rather enjoyable if you don't mind a low scare factor or are a young kid or have or know young children who enjoy scary stories.
Obviously, as guessing by looking at the animation, you can tell that this show is rather light hearted compared to many other horror animes. This wouldn't be a series to watch if you are looking for something truely frightning.
None of the shows are very long and they are usually split into 3 parts, two main stories, and one small one at the end.
These stories as I said usually aren't that scary but occasionally there may be one that is slightly creepy, one I've seen so far, creepy being a 'made you jump' moment. There are a decent amount of them that seem to be rather sad.
The characters are rather cliche, if that matters, but loveable all the same. Ako is a shy, glasses wearing girl, and Sho is an (attractive?) blonde exchange student who has a love for ghost stories and the paranormal.
All in all, I suck at writing reviews this series is highly recomended if you are not looking for something too scary, if you are looking for something scary them if you wish I will recommend it to you to.
It must be the "cuteness" of Kaidan Restaurant that seems to make you unable to stop watching.
I wonder how much this is going to cost me.
Im watching this anime like right now and my first inpresiont is that it wont be that scary ok lets continue , ok it has some good horror moment but to tell the truth the animation is so childish that how to put it simple it kinda Bores me if it had a really more darker animation witt less color
so overall i think its to scare 8 yr old kids but for people that are over 14 its kinda lame
Okay, here's the thing. You have to go into this anime realizing that it was a show designed for Japanese children. It isn't meant to be super scary (although it does have its moments). I personally enjoyed this anime because it does give you a good bit of insight into Japanese folk tales. The art is mediocre but follows a similiar style to many other children's anime.
If you go into this expecting it to be scary and for adults you will be disappointed. But this anime does have some good points. The characters grow and help each other, overcome fears and work together. The show is more or less slice of life and doesn't have a solid overarching storyline but each mini storyline is pretty good.
I wouldn't say the show is without faults but it could be worth a watch if you're into ghost stories that won't keep you awake at night (what can I say? I'm a bit of a coward).
