They probably didn't carry the body to the doctor because... then they'd be going across town with a corpse. Kind of hard to explain away, no? Also, going to adults and saying "Hey, so we found this vampire..." is going to make them sound crazy. They don't know the doctor is thinking the same thing as them anyway. It's not surprising Megumi wasn't in the grave as a trick, either. Her lack of decomposition wouldn't exactly put anyone's concerns to rest. The best bet would try to get an adult to join them in on some grave-digging, but obviously that'd be kind of a touchy subject.

All in all I really enjoyed the episode as I do the series itself. As soon as this is on DVD I'm buying it. I love the way things are progressing, the pacing is so perfect and the show so good and interesting. I'm always left excited for the next ep. With this episode the only thing I didn't like was the little vampire kid with the puppet, that was damn obnoxious although her red eyes and evil looks kind of made up for it.

Can't wait for the next episode!

By the way, not an invitation for any spoilers, but I see Shiki was a novel that's being adapted as an ongoing manga. So is the anime based on an incomplete manga or what? I'm just wondering if there's a complete story or if it's still ongoing.

The novel is already finished and the manga is based on it (tho there are many differences :/), the anime is solely based on the manga (even the way things are happening... I really want to know how they will do the next episodes since most of the stuff thats going to happen will happen at the same time with lots of flashbacks). The manga is still not completed I think, so if they aren't planning on doing a second season or leaving an open ending, then I think they will follow the novel at some point (an original ending would just suck).

Shiki manga is based from the novel that I heard is already completed. Manga is more focusing on Natsuno/Megumi/Sunako but also retain Toshio & Muroi main role from the novel.

This was a great episode nonetheless, the kids are aware that they are facing the vampires but not rush things out as they still doesn't know how many of them. They should quickly meet up with Toshio & Muroi as they also getting the hunch about vampires is behind all of this and teamed up against them. I bet Muroi can provide them some kickass mantra :D

Also, I can't help that I see a big red flag to the Natsuno parent after seeing this shot:

Natsuno's parents are SO fucking stupid!! There is NO WAY in hell that I would let a child with an aggressive and bad attitude into my house!! I'd tell her to come back in the morning and then slam the door in her face. I hope that little bitch eats both of them for being so damn clueless!!!

LOL I was thinking the same thing, specially the mom... isnt she stupid or what??
Reminder to myself: never let in a little creepy girl into my house, wait...I dont think I need to remember that bc I am not stupid enough to let a psycho little girl who looks like a damn black eye kid get into my house.

This is just getting better and better.

And you are all so heartless... saying you won't let a cute little girl in your house when it's dark outside and she is far from home... what if she gets lost?

What if we allowed a persistent creepy girl who keeps asking to go in saying no because she is that creepy?

That girl in the end, SHE'S TOO FREAKY!!!

Anyhow, 4.9/5.

That was intense; the last few minutes I was squirming in my seat saying: "Don't let her in! Don't Let her in!! Ride your bike FASTER Natsuno!"

Excellent episode, but I don't want to wait another week for an episode!!

Well, this episode was something else. And not even one bit like I expected.

And what I expected? That Tatsumi would take care of Megumi's grave so that Natsuno and others wouldn't find the empty coffin. Or that Tatsumi would be the one who attacks them in the forest.

And the girl? She was everything but cute. I wouldn't let her inside even if others insisted. That sequence really scared me out. Thank God I watched it in the morning.

Anyway, the ep gets 5 out of 5 from me. As always.

Looking forward to the next episode.

By the way, have we received any indications concerning the abilities of the okiagari? I know in this episode Natsuno, Kaori, and Akira had a minor discussion that kind of touched upon the topic (and then they decided to leave the body out in the open, marvelous job!).

Thus far we know they behave mostly like vampires in how they

  • sleep during the day,
  • hunt their prey at night,
  • require blood to survive,
  • shun the sunlight to live,
  • are physically durable against things that would kill normal humans
  • require an invitation and all that other jazz.

But can they utilize other properties? Are they imbued with enhanced physical strength or any other types of advantages?
IIRC Natsuno seemed paralyzed when Megumi visited Tohru's house, so I had mused that they had some sort of ability that hinders movement. However, after watching Natsuno shovel that punk down, I believe that he was just tied down by fear in the former and demonstrated his badassery in the latter.

I have not read the novel or the manga, so I am just curious. If the okiagari are gifted with such powers, maybe it is possible that Natsuno will outdo the child and live (unlikely, but meh :<).

EDIT: oh, wait. He is screwed. At best, the teams will be Natsuno and two parents who lack common sense vs two okiagari.

Damn this is getting interesting... And Natsuno's parents must be retarded to let that thing into their house... I mean, she obviously wasn't just a cute little girl with a doll. I hope Natsuno will be OK.
Best ep so far, 5/5.

An awesome episode! Shiki is surely one of the best series this season.
I'm so excited to see the new one already. My favorite part of the manga will most likely start, so I'm really looking forward to it.
Shizuka sure is creepy, but like somebody else said before, she would have been scarier with the orginal fair hair she had in the manga. Not that she wasn't now. Who would invite such a girl in his home that easy? Natsuno's mother is an idiot. Or just too nice. Either way, it's bad for her and her family's life.
I liked the way they showed Natsuno's fear when he hit the shiki. Taking one's life is not a good expirience. He didn't actually kill him, (since he was already dead) but even so... If my ordinary life suddenly turned into a horror movie... I can't imagine in what shock I'll be. His reaction was very realistic, that's what I'm trying to say.
We didn't see neither Megumi nor Tatsumi, so I hope that we'll next week. Both of them are really interesting.
I'm wondering too if they will follow the novel or just create a new ending. I'm certainly for the first.

Sunako is such a interesting character to see, I wonder why she gives so many "hints" to Seishin. And that little girl in the end was sure creepy.

Shiki has a great problem: the wait for each episode >.<

Finally the appearance of Shizuka. She keeps giving me goose bumps. Such a freaky child.
But I'm still so mad Yuuki's father let her in. What was that man thinking?

The next episodes will get so much more awesome. I can't already wait for it!

I can't help but wonder, where is this all going? We pretty much know everything we need to about the vampires, and now a number of the villagers have figured it out, so...now what? I'm sure there's a good answer, it just occurs to me that I have no idea what the actual plot is going to be.

Another excellent episode. The music is so awesome. Add it to watching this at night with headphones and all alone and enjoyment of this show is multiplied tenfold ^^. Looks like we have an assassin to eliminate the ones who have a grasp of the situation(it seems that way to me). I was gritting my teeth the whole time Shizuka was talking to Natsuno's dad. Don't let her in! But damn, she got it and it looks like she has company. Wonder how this will turn out. Damn, I love this show. Keeps getting better and better.

I wonder if Toru will play a role here. He's in the OP song so he must be important but he's dead. Wonder if he'll become a Shiki too. And yay, no Masao in this episode!

i cant believe they let her in. If ANY bitch like that came to my door step and acted like that, i would stuck a fucking broom up her ass and kick that bitch out. SERIOUSLY! I guess they had to put this in there for the story, but i HIGHLY dont think someone would be that stupid, then again, theres alot of stupid ppl in this world.

In the whole episode i was like WOW!!!!
That girl will definitely give me nightmares..I was screaming "don't let her in, don't", but then the clever mother came and offered her hospitality..The father looked like he understood that something was wrong.I wish he had insisted some more..I really don't want them to die..
And it is pretty much settled that they cannot get inside the house to feed themselves if they are not invited..Damn, now i have to wait a week..It is a lot of time...Argh..

i actually didn't know that vampires can't come into a house uninvited, now i understand why the creepy little girl insisted (it's an euphemism) so much...but it's kinda messed up, she's like "let me in you stupid old man!" (great way to make yourself feel welcomed) and then the wife shows up and decides she's cute and harmless O_o
I would've shut that door in her face...

I was watching this episode with very low sound, I could practicly not hear it.
And when it came to the puppet girl and she freaked out with the puppets I got freaked out, I imagined her voice to be so cruel and evil, resonating..
I turned up the volume a bit, and she sounded completely normal :S
..even the hand doll had a demon voice in my mind

Nice episode, though I think I liked it more when I wasn't yet sure what was troubling the village..
I'd like to everything.

HAHAHA NAIIISE ONE.

By the way people, did you all notice that Shizuka was so angsty and desperate when Natsuno's dad didn't want to let her in. Why?



Thanks for the brilliant explanation, this makes sense. When I first saw the episode without reading this; I kept waiting for her to kill Natsuno's parents in any given time. But she was very smart with herself. Maybe she has no interest in killing Natsuno's parents; but Natsuno himself. After all, Natsuno is the all-knowing about this situation. It could be Kaori and her brother next; maybe she wants to wipe out Natsuno to keep this all secret.

My guess is the Shiki are developing a plan, really. Building an army and the ending will include a big war. Yes, I know I have an overactive imagination.

I gotta read the manga sometime.

<33333 this anime! Can't wait for next week's!

Natsuno actually really looks like his parents... And his dad looks pretty cool. He was totally not going to let that child in. If only Natsuno's mom didn't come to interfere. I waited two days to watch it so that I didn't have to watch it at night and I'm really glad I did. xD

I'm still perplexed by general score of this anime. "7.60" really? wow!

Anyway, that kid ticked me off seriously. At least, that horse faced Masao isn't in this episode or that would be 2x annoyance. I hope both of Natsuno's parents don't get bitten, the look pretty nice.

Did not anybody get annoyed that they managed to knock a vampire unconscious for a long time too, just by hitting him in the head with a shovel?

It's a freakin' vampire, an undead! How is it even possible to knock such a thing unconscious as if it's a living a human...

With eps 7 and 8, I take all the praise back that I made for Shiki's vampires... They're just the Hollywood sub-standard type of vampires, after all.

But the story and characters are great. Suspense, atmosphere, agony and good pacing... So all is forgiven.

Btw, love the little vampire girl's attitude... Hmm, she was not one of the villagers so there seems to be more vampires that came along with Tatsumi and the Kirishiki family. Gotta wonder just how many are there....

it was kinda stupid but at least they don't sparkle 8D

Natsuno could have put a stake in his heart or something o_O not that it's really going to be necessary, anyway :/

Even though they said that it's not like the vampires in movies, I noticed that it looks like they DO need permission before entering a house. That little freaky girl didn't just barge in Yuuki's room, did she? And before that Masao had to open the window to let the other vampire in.
But I don't really know..

Is anyone else a little confused right now?
