Product Description

From the studio that brought you Black Butler and Fullmetal Alchemist emerges the psychological thriller that will send you to bed with a cross in hand.

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?

At a time when vampires have become ubiquitous in popular culture, from juvenile novels and live-action films to anime, Shiki stands out for its deeply unsettling tension and suspense. The power of the okiagari, or corpse demons, continues to grow, threatening the existence of remote Sotobamura village. When sulky teenager Natsuno is killed by Toru, the vampire that was once his best friend, and adolescent Akira disappears, Dr. Ozaki seems to have lost his only allies in the battle against the demons. But the dedicated young physician and Natsuno are not so easily defeated, although junior monk Seishin falls under the spell of Susano, an ancient child-vampire who resembles a decayed Victorian doll. As Shiki builds to its conclusion, director Tetsuro Amino skillfully maintains the creepy atmosphere of the earlier episodes. He deftly uses warping backgrounds, dramatic lighting, sinister shadows, and unusual colors to heighten the drama. The war between the human villagers and the okiagari inevitably grows more violent, but Shiki never devolves into a gore fest. Like a volume of Edgar Allan Poe, Shiki is not an entertainment to enjoy alone late at night. But it is an arresting series that reenergizes an increasingly threadbare genre.

Shiki, aka Vampires, are taking over a village in the mountains. The village is cut off from civilization, and a bit behind the times. A family called the Kirishiki's move into town. At the same time the village experiences a long series of deaths. Only a few residents actually start to catch on to the fact that the Kirishiki's are behind it. This anime has everything beautiful art, amazing soundtrack, likable characters, and a very engrossing story. I don't want to say too much in fear of spoiling the fun, but I will say that Shiki stands at the top of the horror anime genre. Definitely check it out.

Shiki is unlike any other anime series I have ever seen. Horror is a hard genre to tackle in animation, especially anime. What scares us changes from culture to culture, but Shiki manages to overcome those barriers to create a stunning, chilling and atmospheric series that will stick with you long after you have finished watching.

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.

This series begins like it might be mildly entertaining until suddenly you realize you are riveted to the movements of the people in this story--and quite frightened as well. After watching it I feel as if I have seen what makes anime an important film movement.

Please consider this review alongside Part 1. The two parts are not stand-alone. Part 2 concludes the story of the terrible events that grip a small village in Japan, a village just as up to date as anywhere else (though without cellphone coverage) but with its own peculiar attributes.

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.
Story: Excellent
Voice cast: English cast - excellent. I briefly listened to the original but cannot rate it.
Bonus features: minimal.

The second part of the series shows us the confrontation between the villagers who are still among the living and those who have become the undead and the fight between the two for the survival of their village or its destruction.The series will show the grey line between who is the monster and who is the victim as we see the actions done by both the humans and the shikis in this battle and we see the inner feelings and personalities that they've kept hidden from themselves as well. If you dislike blood and gore in your anime then this is one you'll have to pass up as while no mindlessly brutal there is going to be some scenes of blood and brutality in it. The animation is again one you'll have to get used to as it seems a mix of Clamp anime series and Gundam Seed not exactly the same but you might see a little bit of similarity. The voice cast for the dubbed and subbed again did a terrific job and the soundtrack fits nicely with the series,so overall if you already got the first par of the series then the second is a must have to complete this entertaining series.
