Shiki – first impressions

“It starts non-chalantly… and within a few days, it worsens drastically.”

Creepy dude...

About time we had a decent thriller series. While I was less than impressed with the first episode, the second episode was what won me over, with some very solid building up for the events to come. NoitaminA is having a very good year!

Some weird sh!t going on...

I have really enjoyed how they’ve portrayed Sotobamura. The country lifestyle there is strongly and credibly conveyed, yet it’s not terribly forced.

Megumi - a girl who just wants out...

The animation is definitely original. Many viewers have commented how the female character models were pretty nice, as opposed to the male ones. I personally don’t really mind. It’s good to see Daume can do shows other than random moe series (though Minami Ke S1 was awesome).

Weird doggy

The atmosphere is directed very well. The moment where the whispering noises are heard when Yuuki touches his window definitely sent some shivers down my spine.

Megumi's not so seductive pose

After a good second episode, I am pumped to see where this series takes us, seeing we’re being presented with both supernatural and medical components (much like where Higurashi S2 took us). Here’s to some great chills and kills~

OP: there are some very nice ideas in this OP. However, while the tune is fitting, it’s just not my taste.

ED: ewwww hate the voice, the creepy girl is interesting…

If you enjoyed Higurashi, you'd be nuts to miss this

    lol @ Valence’s last comment. I didn’t like the first ep of Shiki but it improved by the second. It’s interesting and I’m looking forward to a build up in the thriller series.
