52: Especially Spooksome (Yamishibai)

As All Hallows Eve arrives this year, the brothers finish their foray into the dark recesses of Yamishibai. Jon delivers a tale of an accursed hikikomori that receives help from a friendly Shinto priestess. Ben caps off the spooks with the story of a girl who actually managed to get senpai to notice her, though she may regret it. Also featuring: Kuzu no Honkai, a discussion on if Stranger Things or Higurashi is more creepy, and final scary anime picks.
