• OTAKU KAIDAN

    KAIDAN is the term used for the Japanese ghoststories, and, extensively, for theJ-Horror culture. The Buddhist moralizing stories were rapidlytransformed into international shockers; people wanted more frighteningmonstrosities and oddness, with no direct connection with the Westernhorror.Manga, anime, movies and the subcultures developed around them competedin shicks and panic. If you really want to know why on the Japanesehorror movies is written 18+, take a look at the next issue of OtakuMagazine. Nevertheless, is our duty to warn you that all who lookedinside certain pages of this issue have disappeared shortly after.Still, it might be just a story to send the children to sleep for good.
