    This is a terrific meditation on moral panic, and how it can lead normal people into depravity.
    I saw this some years ago. I wasn't wild personally about the character design at first, but the narrative really sucked me in. This could have been just another by the numbers monsters-infest-isolated-town show, but it becomes so much more, becoming a meditation on moral panic, where ostensibly decent folk descend into mob violence, and nothing is so black and white, after all. Vampires as a ...

    Great show overall. The plot is original and while it's mostly suspense, it's the best kind
    I would recommend this to all, surprised to see it on here now. I hated the idea of a vampire anime, but it turned out to be on of my favorites from years ago. At first the show might seem like it's slow or has a boring plot progression, but it quickly gets better as the plot unfolds and villains are met with the hero. A lot of badass characters in the show, and unexpected twists.

    Where do I even begin
    Ok so let's start with the genre, Shiki is a horror/tragedy and most of all its thrilling it'll keep you clinging to your seat wanting more. Shiki captured my attention with its crazy plot and very detailed characters I was surprised to see almost everyone have a well-built background I mean given it takes place in a small town it still amazes me they were able to fit it all. Finally, I recommend ...

    A wonderful horror anime with an amazing story and one of my old favorites, highly recommend
    I watched this anime few years back and I still love it to bits even now. I was so happy to find out that it got put on crunchyroll so I can enjoy rewatching this story again. Shiki is a horror anime with beautiful story telling. It revolves around not just one or 2 characters, but the town as a whole and goes back and forth between different characters. The interactions, the breathtaking dialogue ...

    Just amazing--- taken a back.
    I absolutely loved this anime. First time watching, I binge watched all the way through. The anime starts out very mysterious and melodic in a very small village. I do not want to spoil any of its content, however, Shiki has raised questions in my mind that question humanities place in life. This anime really dance along the line of humanity and inhumanity. Whether or not some actions are ...

    A story that will have you captivated from beginning to end!
    This anime does an amazing job showing the perspective of each character and really making you question who is right, wrong or more importantly, is there even a right and wrong to begin with. The story and ample back stories of the characters are all very in depth and kept me hooked from the beginning to end. This is definitely an anime worth binge watching. This is my second watch of this and I ...

    Had me on the edge of my seat up to the last episode
    I honestly didn't know what to expect when I picked this show up. I had no idea what it was about nor did I read the synopsis. I just jumped right in and mannnn was it a ride! I can't recall the last time I gave a show 5 stars but this show truly deserves it. The plot, character development, and the writing; it was all so good. I'm not going to spoil it for you so give it a watch! Not a bad ...

    An interesting and creepy anime.
    The art style seems reminiscent of maybe 2000's/late 90's anime with the chin being incredibly pointy and the eyes being incredibly big. Kind of like Yu-Gi-Yo's design.

    The anime itself is really creepy and interesting to watch. It's a small village and very clear considering how dated everything looks and how everyone knows everyone. The characters all have their own personal problems and ...

  • Brilliant intriguing story with an amazing musical score
    Excellent characters, some gore and a fantastic score. This show is very haunting and suspenseful in the tradition of the old thrillers about small town mentality, not belonging and trying to fit in. The animation is beautifully rendered and gives the viewer a sense of a small town in the hills of Japan.
