1: Wrong Number


Married to a salary man who works all day, Mrs. Masuda remains at home with their son, Hirofumi.  One day, the phone rings. The mysterious caller informs Mrs. Masuda that she’s running late…

Are you excited for another season of Yamishibai? Which is your favorite story so far? My favorite episode is from Season 1: Hair.  I will never touch a printer at night!
