My god, why did it take so long for me to realize that Ritsuko is quite gorgeous? She's almost as lovely as a pale Megumi. Sunako's eyes are very captivating also. With all this, I think I can turn a blind eye to Masao.

So why did a dying Nao not look as great as Megumi?

Holy crap. What is up with Masao's character design? His eyes are... far far creepier than any of those of that vampire family's. Seriously, wtf man. It doesn't help that he's creepy as hell. He's such an unpleasant... *shudders* thing you just want to get rid of... like a centipede or cockroach.

I'm sad for the Tohru guy. He has death flags set up around him. So sad that he'll probably die in the next episode or so.

Also, I have a pretty decent tolerance to unique and strange character designs and art styles, but these just bother me for some reason. The eyes and hair especially. I dislike how... glowy and circular the pupils are. They look like shiny rings stuck into their eyes or something.

Never invite a vampire into your house, I'm pretty sure thats a golden rule somewhere? Could be wrong, just saying.

Okay, so this is obviously about vampires. Anyone notice the bit about Cain and Abel? I guess that confirms it.

Anyway, why don't those villagers notice that the Kirishikis GLOW IN THE DARK? You know, if the creepy eyes didn't give it away.

And on the subject of creepy eyes... Masao... Just Masao. I hope to God he's the next to die.

This Anime is going at an extremely slow pace. I don't know how they plan on adapting the entire light novel in 22 episodes, especially since the manga is still ongoing as well.

I really like this Anime though. I love intricate plots with lots of characters, even if it's nearly impossible to keep track of them all.

I LOVE the slow pace. If you think about it... it's completely necessary. We're getting to know all the characters... their flaws... friendships... personalities and how this town works.

Excellent episode. Insanely creepy without any actual violence/blood.

Oh.. and Masao is is.... ::shudders:: spooky. Looks like Marilyn Manson as a teenager.

I love the anime so far , they really made Sunako perfectly creepy <3.
Also Masao was as childish and stupid as in the manga, but made me laugh like hell .

Damn that Kanemasas !

This is the scariest shit i ever saw.


Ohh!! the horror, he makes the vampires look innocent. What is that? A tranvesti, a cockroach, the phantom of the opera, maybe the killer from the scream movies? KILL IT, KILL IT WITH FIRE!!!!!

Hahaha! perfect description there.

Until now the hair didn't bother me as much as other people but i have to admit after seeing the vampire dads hair i got annoyed too. That was just ridiculous.

Am pretty sure you are right on the money there. They really seem to need an invitation to come in your home at night. That's why they go around getting into smalltalk until they get an invitation.

I think you answered your own question. Shiki has little fanservice. The only prominent service-y part in ep 3 was the nurse changing into her uniform. On comparison, Left4Highschool's nurse is about 95% fanservice. That series is more ecchi than horror. Besides, zombies aren't scary since Plants vs Zombies got published. :P

Okay, back to Shiki.

The creepiest part is still that weird soundtrack when Natsuno feels stalked by something. The eyes are creepy only in OP/ED sequences, they don't really deliver the impact as well with the gradient and stuff in the episodes.

Crazy hair is crazy. Also, I forgot Gackt was starring in Shiki. Nice one, Noitamina.

I love the pacing and I'm glad there isn't even one TRULY likeable character (okay, maybe Mutou). I couldn't stand Higurashi because I wanted to protect Keichii from harm, but in Shiki? I'm eagerly waiting for all of them to succumb to madness and kill everyone in the village. :D

The weird guy with the black hair & lipgloss is literary the creepiest character I have ever seen.

The subs that I watched, when it was talking about that dude, they italicized him, like it was a shocker. It made me smile. Epic Win!!!

The hair keeps getting stranger & stranger...

LOL I love Plants vs Zombies! 8D
And lol, yeah the zombies in HOTD really remind me of Plants vs Zombies. Last episode I found myself thinking; Don't bother getting all panicky, just plant some potato mines and get the hell out of there. >.>

About Shiki:

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO TOHRU-CHAAAN! ;____;
Everyone knows not to invite a vampire over right? Especially not in a series that follows the rule that vampires cannot enter yout mansion unless you invite them in.

And dude are those guys blind? Didn't anyone notice the weird eyes Sunako-chan and her mother have? >.>
I already love Sunako though. I just have a weak spot for evil loli's, and she was SO adorable. I'm starting to like Natsuno more and more too, and I SPOTTED A BL MOMENT! 8D Tohru x Natsuno anyone? =D

Anyway, I liked Tohru. ;w; Save him, someone! I don't want him to die so soon. TTwTT

I'm not enjoying the series as much as I thought I would however since the "family" have now started to make their odd appearances - hopefully it will keep my interest. I'm not so bothered about the hair, i'm liking the art as its something different from what I usually see.

I'm also glad of the fact that the main character isn't likeable, since to me it makes him slightly more interesting. I was having a weird thought too that it would be weird if he had died and then came back alive alongside Megumi. However from the opening i'm guessing it will be a while yet till he dies if he does.

He creeps me out too...

This is one of those series I wish I hadnt started watching until it was finished. I feel the pacing is correct for the atmosphere they are trying to express but it leaves me frustrated having to wait another week to pick up on it, and by then the feeling of unease instilled from watching the previous episode has dulled.

Definitely sticking with this to see where it goes, but ultimately I might wait a while and let a few episodes stack up... if I can hold off ;)

I don't know why people keep saying things like: oh my gosh, pace of this show is terribly slow, it's boring, blah blah blah. You knew from since episode that this won't be like some OTHER new anime (yes, I am looking at you, Highschool ofthe Dead).
In my opinion is pacing great, because (as I and many others said before) it helps build atmosphere. I wouldn't be enjoying this as much as I do without that.
Also, complaining all the time about art is meaningless. Yes, art is quite strange, but unique at the same time (and you knew since first episode about this, too, yet you have to complain).

OK, about this episode:

Masao is absolutely terrifying. They must dispose of him somehow... Yet I want to see him more for the sake of lulz :D Natsuno is as emo as ever while Sunako is cute and mysterious... Hmm, she is fond of books, I would want her as my little sister :) Or maybe not. I wonder what's up with priest, why did he try to kill himself.
I want Tohru-chan as my neighbor, that would be sweet :D
Also, I was quite intrigued when Sunako said to priest (forgot his name, lol) that her father moved into village because of his essay, where he wrote that Sotoba is village surrounded by death. Did he mean those strange "coffin trees?" :D

I just can not stand these Digimon-like hairstyles. So far I liked this anime, it looks very realistic, but God, why they needed to make the hair looking like that?

I hope Mutou doesn't die. He's quite nice.

I like the pacing. Anyways, I hope the family says "lets bite that annoying paranoid freak next." I was sort of repulsed the second i saw him; they did a good job of rendering him quite differently from the others.
Megumi preserves and stalks even through death it seems? Wonder if Natsuno really can be the protagonist if right now he is only a target.

I also don't understand why the word vampire hasn't crossed any of their minds. I realize that they think they don't exist or what not, but wouldn't you think that for even a second.. even if you shot it down right after? I'm just confused..
Firstly there were no signs of bite marks except the victim shown in this episode and in a normal rational world epidemic and 'medical reasons' sounds more sensible than some fantasy creature.

Masao is just creepy.

I guess the people from Kanemasama place interacts with the village people before attacking so that they invite them in their houses, as classic vampires cannot enter without invitation. Ofcourse I could be wrong here.
