Some Interesting Info:
The creator of this anime/manga/light novel is none other than, Fuyumi Ono. As some might recall, she is also the creator of the popular series of Twelve Kingdoms and Ghost Hunt.

Tid-bit's:
My word, it took forever for me to find a plot summary that didn't give away any spoilers. Anyway..! The anime has just started to air, the first episode was... yesterday. It's uniquely drawn and full of mystery! Woooo. *ahem* Moving on... Since, I read the manga and wish to read the light novel, I was happy about the anime coming. So far, even though it's the first episode, it hasn't disappointed me. As I have stated before, it's uniquely drawn.. mostly the eyes. They're all freakin' CREEPY! They're big, but they have this ring thing inside them that.. it's just creepy..lol. Anyhow, the anime is doing good with keeping the mystery in it and making one wonder what is going on. The character you think is going to be the main character.. well.. she... um, turns out not to be the main character and it's interesting on how they show you that.
The music - opening theme is catchy and I kinda like it. It'll be one that will grow on me. The ending is.. annoying..lol. As for background music.. Good! *thumps up* Adds a nice touch of spooky-mysterious-nerviousness to it.
Whelp, needless to say, I am looking forward to the next episode and am hoping that it is as good as the manga. Go watch it!! *quickly runs away*

*comes back* By the way, how do others like it (or not)?

Just to make sure you know, the first episode was last week on the 8th.

After Nura, this series is my second most anticipated. I hope Daume decides to do more than 22 episode if the series does well in Japan. However, I think this series could pull off a full run at only 22 episodes, if done well.

I really hope this would be a good horror anime. Horror nowadays just isn't what it's supposed to be. The first episode seems to capture the atmosphere pretty well. Since this is based on a novel from the author of Ghost Hunt, it would be at least decent, but hopefully better. One of my top three favorite anime series from this season. (The other two being Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin and Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu.)

Some of the side characters startled me a little, because they look so comical.

What side character? Only character we have really seen so far is dead.

Unless she going to be a ghost now we are still in the dark with who and what the characters are.

^ By "side characters", I meant the minor characters, the people besides Shimizu Megumi, Natsuno, the doctor, the monk etc. Don't you think the old people and even Megumi's friend (especially her hair) look kinda atypical for anime characters in a non-comedy horror anime? But they're not so weird as to distract you from the story, so that's good I guess.

Episode 3 is out, go watch it!

EDIT: whoops, I meant to say episode 2.

I was about to stop watching Shiki because of the first episode. T.T The main character was very er-unique or typical, I can't decide which. But when I finished the episode, and found out she wasn't going to be the main character after all; I was really relieved. ^.^" And I agree with snowpenguin77, the side characters are not as worked on as much. >w< I can't find the word to describe it...

After 3 episodes I am hooked! Counting the days!!!

I have always been a sucker for the creepy, mysterious and bloody Everything that has a nice "ewwww" factor in it!
I actually like the way the anime is drawn, but I have to admit that the hairstyles look kinda 'misplaced'... not sure how to say it... I would have liked a more realistic look for the characters hair! When I see the hair, I almost expect something 'funny' to happen!
Big plus: Gackt is involved in this His voice is going to gives the whole thing a big CREEPY plus!!!
(don't understand that wrong now!!! I am a big fan of his!)

The opening music is pretty good, but the music at the end gets me so annoyed, I just turn it off.

I might end up liking this more than When They Cry!

Sounds like Higurashi. I'll check it out.

If you think the previous episodes have a nice creepy feel to it, you'll love episode 4. It's finally getting scary. I just watched it at midnight, but not alone and I still got scared xD

I agree the ending song is horrible. The opening song isn't that good either.

Couldn't stand Higurashi b/c of the character design. Besides, unlike Higurashi, this one doesn't have much blood or gore, which aren't essential to horror in the first place imo.

Don't click below unless you already watched episode 4.

I haven't seen episode 4 yet, because funimation is being slow. As for your spoiler (yeah, I read it. Lol) Yeah.. I'll also put it in a spoiler.
As for the other characters. I dislike.. Masao.. I dislike him SOOOOOOOOO much....!

Anyway, the ending is indeed a horrible song, but I like the opening and I can't wait until episode 4!
