Story - 9.5
If you haven't seen Shiki then watching this by itself won't work. All of the storyline is in the original series and without watching Shiki you won't understand a thing so go watch Shiki before this. As to not spoil it for you I'm gonna say that it is thought provoking and scary - pretty much like Shiki, but with a bit more of scary in it.
P.S. Somebody burns in the end!
Visuals - 9
Visuals are basically the same as Shiki. It means that it's great. And I'm saying it for a reason. Of course the visual art won't send your eyes to heaven with it's rainbow colors and beautiful, but it will show you everything it wants to starting to creepy faces and character emotions and awesome contrasts that make you almost want to get sparkly eyed. Also the Shiki by itself had great colors and very well made characters designs, but it had a 2 problems.
1. It had some seriously stupid hair designs for few character, but this is basically just nitpicking.
2.Some characters were ugly.
Guess what? Yeah you did guess it, these 2 problems disappear in this Special.
Sound - 10
Awesome. Maybe you won't listen to the opening or the background music by itself without this Special, but I can guarantee you that the music fits perfectly with what is happening in this Special. Just like a glove with a hand.
Characters - 9
This special shows everything from a side characters point of view and it very fast somehow connects to you. Yeah of course there is no character development and the characters in here won't get in to anime greatest characters list, but what can you want from just 2 episodes.
Enjoyment - 10
I definitely did enjoy it. I just loved how it touched me emotionally and yet provoked my thoughts also.
Overall - 10
Maybe I'm a bit hyping this Special up, but all I can say certain is that if you liked Shiki you will like this just as much or even more. It's not your normal Special that shows everything the series had it he same way. For gods sake just go watch it! It's a must see, just don't forget to see Shiki first. read more

With that being said here are some points i'd like you to know so you can make the desicion werther to watch these or not.
Since i guess that you have already watched the full series, you have already compenetrated with the situation and you know the feelings of those who you will see involved in these two specials.
The lives of those who are victims of pandemonium are portrait in here, you will see the impact on the people and how the sudden deaths of different acquaintances leave them wondering for their own safety. (for you to know it, it was Outstanding).
The art was not something i really enjoyed since i felt already awkward with the character designs and the colors.After getting used to it, i could move forward, hence the fairness of the score.
In matters of sound you will expect that it fits the dark theme and the dramatic and mindblowing situations, well, you wo'nt be dissapointed since it'll merge in a way that the music will also guide you through what the characters are feeling. i recommend for you to look forward to listen the second ending of the series to see how it fits perfectly.
The characters in here are great because it becomes obvious that everyone is involved and, decisions have been made; do not expect that people's spirit won't crack facing a demonic experience such as this; knowing it might endanger your loved ones.
You will definietely enjoy this since it'll show a darker side to those we weren't able to fully understand, and you will see how the choices they made, affected everyone and when i say everyone it means also those abandoned by god.
