Yami Shibai - Japanese Ghost Stories s05e05
Titre original : Shadows of Women
A woman waits for her husband to come home. When he arrives, she asks if he has been drinking again, to which he says only with people at work. As her husband prepares to take a shower, the woman smells the faint scent of another woman's perfume on his suit. As she picks up the husband's clothes, the woman finds more signs that he is cheating: she finds a lipstick mark on the collar of his shirt and a broken acrylic nail. She puts his clothes in the washer, only to find his cell phone ringing. She takes a look at it and finds multiple messages from someone named Rie-san, the most recent one saying, "I'll always be at your side..." At first, she's angry, but anger turns to fear when the shadow of another woman looms over her. Quickly, she turns around, but finds no one. When the husband comes out of the showers, the wife demands to know who Rie-san is, to which the husband replies he doesn't know. When the wife tells him about the emails on his phone, he says they're just spam. When the wife tells him he's cheating, she stops when she hears a woman's voice whisper, "Only you..." She watches in horror as a shadow looms behind the oblivious man and wraps him in multiple arms. As the man walks off, telling her he's going to bed, the wife can see the reflection of her husband still in the mirror and can hear multiple voices declaring their love for him and wrapped around him are shadowy monsters with feminine features and red eyes. The reflection says he'll never leave her side...and then looks directly at her and says, "But if you're so worried...why don't you stay at my side too?" Almost instantly, the woman's eyes turn red and her skin turns black and she says in a monotonous voice, "Always...at your side..."
