Demystifying the Kaidan Shinmimi Bukuro tidal wave


Categories:

The Kaidan Shin Mimi Bukuro horror series has been blossoming in Japan for a couple years now. There are currently thirteen different DVDs available, none of which have been released in English-subtitled versions. Thus keeping track of those which trickle over to the West has caused some confusion.


Here is the cumulative list with graphics in order of release dates for those of you interetsed in this series.

PS: The names I provide should be understood as those of the sub-titles only. Each of these would formally be referred to as "Kaidan Shin Mimi Bukuro: [subtitle here]".

This is "Kaidan Shin Mimi Bukuro: Night 1" and contains 10 of the "best" from season 1. To my knowledge this was the first collection released on DVD (june 2003)

This is "Kaidan Shin Mimi Bukuro: Night 2" also containing 10 of the "best" of the second season, released July 2003.

This is "Kaidan Shin Mimi Bukuro: Chikatzuku" or "It's Getting Close!" released January 2004. It contains 7 short stories.

This is "Kaidan Shin Mimi Bukuro: Akecha Dame" or "Don't Open It!" (though I strongly recommend we name this one "Don't Pick It!") released Feb 2004. It contains 6 short stories.

This is "Kaidan Shin Mimi Bukuro: Shiroi Himo" or "White Thread/Lace" released March 2004. It contains 7 stories.

This is "Kaidan Shin Mimi Bukuro: First Series Box Set" released June 2004. It uses the same cover graphic as "Night 1" but contains 20 short stories from the first season.

This is "Kaidan Shin Mimi Bukuro: HanaYome-san" or "Bride" released in July 2004. This also contains 7 stories. Ive seen this referred to as "kaidan shinmimi bukuro 3".

This is "Kaidan Shin Mimi Bukuro: Go Harai wa Kikanai" or "The Exorcism didn't work" released August 2004. This contains 8 short stories.

This is the "Kaidan Shin Mimi Bukuro: Gekijoban" or "Theatrical Release" released (on DVD) January 2005. It contains 8 of the "best" of the whole lot.

I have reviewed this film HERE.

This is "Kaidan Shin Mimi Bukuro: Sannin Kuruzo" or "Three are coming" released June 2005. This contains 10 short stories. Ive seen this referred to as "kaidan shinmimi bukuro 4".

This is "Kaidan Shin Mimi Bukuro: Futari-botchi" or "Two All Alone" released July 2005. This contains 10 stories.

This is the "Kaidan Shin Mimi Bukuro: Gekijoban Box Set" or "Theatrical Release Box Set". This contains the theatrical release (mentioned above) along with the entire 3rd TV series. This was released August 3, 2005.

This is "Kaidan Shin Mimi Bukuro: Yuurei mansion" or "Spirit/Haunted Condo (Building)". This is the second theatrical release and will debut August 15, 2005 (in one week!). From what little exists online, it would seem that this may be a single continuous story or at least several vignettes taking place in the same haunted building and involving a main character played by Kurokawa Mie (the girl on the cover).
