When citizens of a secluded village begin dying off in alarming numbers, the sole hospital's head doctor tries desperately to save his patients - but his efforts are in vain. Entire families are wiped out while others desert their homes. All hell breaks loose as the villagers discover their loved ones' corpses are rising from the grave with an insatiable thirst for human blood. Haunting, hallucinogenic and unnerving to the core, Shiki stares into the hearts of both the hunter and the hunted. Who is safe when the urge to kill in order to survive blurs the line between man and monster?

I personally love this anime and how it keeps you in suspense and keeps you guessing what happens next. Both English and Japanese versions go good together. The characters and the artwork are beautifully drawn and colored. This is a great horror anime that goes beyond any other.
If you watch this series from beginning to end, you will never want to sleep.
The storytelling in Shiki is amazing. The show has a gigantic cast, and yet somehow it manages to not only tell every story well, but it also manages to give depth to almost every character that crosses your screen. Even small, side stories carry emotional weight that, as the story builds, carry an emotional gut punch. This show is not interested in clear cut good and evil, and it is better for it. The monsters are humanized, given a depth that makes the audience conflicted in their feelings towards them, and the humans are shown to be just monstrous enough to make one question their motives. This is not an easy show to watch. As the story builds, and stories reach their crescendos, characters are exposed to brutal violence and death.
This is also a show with a good deal of restraint. There is almost zero fan service, and the violence, while at times extreme, is not extreme so much because of gore, but because of the emotional weight behind the actions.
The art in this show is stunning. Again, this show has an extremely large cast, and the art style gives each character their own flair and sets every person apart from one another. While the characters may at times appear odd (especially when it comes to the hair and eyes), each character is easily identifiable. The animation is smooth and beautiful, using simple techniques to create dread and suspense.Read more ›
A story that would lead to a manga adaptation featuring artwork drawn by Ryu Fujisaki and serialized in the magazine "Jump SQ" from December 2007-2011, the popularity of the series would lead to an anime TV series in 2010 produced by anime studio, Daume (best known for "Onegai Teacher!"). The series also caught a lot of attention when Japanese rock star Gackt announced he would voice one of the characters in the series.
And now the series will be released on Blu-ray and DVD (in two parts) in May 2012 courtesy of FUNimation Entertainment.
"Shiki" is presented in 1080p High Definition and the anime studio Daume has done a wonderful job in character design and art backgrounds. Typically anime studios are on a time restraint and are working on multiple anime series at a time but Daume is one of the few studios that tend to put all their focus onto a single series at a time.
The art backgrounds are lush and beautiful, homes and overall village structures are well-detailed and the character designs are actually quite stylish and with colors that support the darker anime feel but also a colors that look absolutely vibrant at times.
With that being said, the anime series still has a softness (that most anime TV series has) and one should not expect OVA or film quality type of anime, but still this is a series that looks fantastic with its detail of structures and interior of homes. "Shiki" definitely looks very good!
"Shiki" is presented in English Dolby TrueHD 5.1 and Japanese DolbyTrue HD 2.0.Read more ›
The personalities set in play in Part 1 conclude their destinies. Each is well thought out. You may not like everything that happens to everyone, but you will be entertained and scared.
Yes, Shiki is a horror story. Bad things happen to good people, and also to bad people.
I was very impressed with the new ways of treating old storylines and the vampire genre. I will definitely watch it again and I suspect it will bear many viewings. The English dub is excellent: there were no mismatches of voice to character.
Bonus features: There are a couple of commentaries by some of the voice cast, which are good value in terms of hearing how they felt about the story. Nothing special, just worth listening to.
Quality of picture: Excellent
Quality of music: Generally about right. This is subjective: for some people, music constantly playing at a quite noticeable volume over the climactic scenes is unwelcome, but I watch a lot of anime and found it fine.
Voice cast: English cast - excellent. I briefly listened to the original but cannot rate it.
Bonus features: minimal.
