Denuske has returned! You now have another reason for watching this show. Your first reason should have been obvious though. Shiki is the latest anime in the Noitamina timeslot. This timeslot previously held Eden of the East, Honey and Clover, Moyashimon, Nodame Cantabile, Tatami Galaxy, Paradise Kiss THE LIST GOES ON! If you’re worried about Artfaggory then don’t be, this doesn’t have that. The character designs are a little on the funky side but that’s really pushing it.
Shiki is a mystery horror series that takes its time building up the suspense. I knew this already going into the series and this episode did little to disprove that. This episode sets the scene, creates the atmosphere and introduces us to the characters, none of which are particularly nice people but eh. Everything feels extremely deliberate, carefully paced and done with a fine hand that knows full well what it’s doing. I can understand why people might find this frustrating to watch though. Not an awful lot happens. However I’m one of the worse people around for getting bored and frustrated extremely quickly and I enjoyed the episode so take from that what you will.
This is not an accurate depiction of what happens in the episode.
Since very little happens in the episode though, I don’t really have anything else to say. So lalalala distracting you from the lack of content in this post. Dennou Coil was a pretty cool anime eh. Boku Sacchi and wasn’t afraid of anything.
