Episode 12. Well, I've been waiting for this.

It's giving me a headache to see how Natsuno's father could change his mind like some sort of loose clockwork. Pfft, he's a man or what?

Yay,I missed Shiki :)

Yes but does Natsuno know that he knows. If Natsuno doesn't, then he probably thinks they are like the other adults.

<Insert obligatory praise of the great music>
New OP was ok, I prefer the previous one though. ED is better than previous.

Natsuno is stupid to just throw the cross and stake away like that. I thought he was better than that. And I know now where he got that stupidity. His father is even stupider with his actions here. Just...uhhh. But it was nice to see some scenes inside the Kanemasa house and that Kirishiki going out in the light. I chuckled at Mr. Tanaka realizing too late that Megumi was dead(she's really astounding in that outfit). So Toru is going to deal the final blow now. Wonder if Natsuno will rise if he died. And I wonder who is attacking the mother.
A great episode despite the stupidity of the characters.

New OP is good separately but very unfitting for this series. New ED is great. Hope that they put about 20 chapters in last series but hope for it is too small (((

So it's finally back. Natsuno is getting closer and closer to death. Really i find his weakness against his specific friend very pathetic. For the love of God his a guy you met a while ago not the love of your life(except if his gay), why is he so weak in taking the necessary measures to save his life?

His mother is gonna accompany him to the crave it seems. And his father is overdoing it. Sure i realize he doesn't believe but at least he could stay by his side at night just to make sure.

BTW what happened to the doctor and those previews we saw where he was experimenting with his wife?

Love love love Shiki. Hate the new opening, the old one had much better music and creepier animation. The new ending is awesome <3
The way Natsuno's dad behaved made me feel so frustrated.
Can't wait for the next episode.

Why was Natsuno able to still interact after being bitten? I understand he got a day of recovery but he wasn't controlled at any point. Still an awesome episode. Dad, I am disappoint.


As far as I've been able to tell, they kill their victims over a period of time. I think Natsuno was just bitten once on that night, but Tohru chickened out of doing it again until Natsuno finally provoked him, which is why you see his health rapidly deteriorate suddenly.

I'm a little disappointed that Natsuno was this weak , even if he loves Tohru. Megumi was so lovely in that dress.

I really like the new OP. I also though the episode was great. I am glad Shiki's hiatus is over.

The dad is so stupid! I hope HE gets bitten or something, it is like he is trying to kill Natsuno.

Wooop Shiki is back and it was awesome as usual.

By the way did anyone else have any problems with the [umee 720p sub]?

THIS!!!
I would very much like it as an Umineko Chiru Opening, or something for any Dark Fantasy series with action. But with a series founded mostly in brooding atmosphere it seems kinda misplaced...like they suddenly all gain magical powers and fight against evil overlord Sunako in a final battle of love and courage...

haha i dunno why but seems like everytime (srsly!) my tastes are different from the rest of the people here in MAL.. oh well.... cause from what i read from some comments people don't like the new songs.... *sighs* You know what? In my case I don't love them, I ADORE them and I don't care If every single one here will disagree. AMAAAAAAAAAAAAZING, fuckin epic music, both for opening and so for ED song too. They are so emotional and intense and they fit the series greatly. I loved the previous songs too, but I love the new ones as well.
Also amazing episode!!! I didn't believe it ended with such a cliffhanger. I wanted to watch more!!! T.T At least I'm glad the hiatus is over.

looooooooooooooool! i cant stop laughing, seriously, your comment rocks;D
I must agree that the OP is very misplaced, while the ED is perfect to me, all naked in blood fits the atmosphere of the anime, while the OP...hahahaha! exactly. It looks like a magical girl OP.
Actually i was expecting a more dark OP since it is made by Kanon Wakeshima and she did a great job in Vampire Knight Endings.

@PerZona: many people have problems with 720p sub, that´s why i always watch the 480p;D

Tohru didn't compel Natsuno. If he has hypnotized him he wouldn't remember anything, just like the other Shiki made to their victims, so they couldn't remember the attack.
The answer to your question "Why was Natsuno able to still interact after being bitten?"
is on the manga.

Although I admit I loled too with your comment, I don't get the same feeling from the OP. In contrary I find that this high pitched voice of the singer together with the quick pace and all created a quite dynamic and mysterious atmosphere. It is more eerie and emotional than a theme for an action anime. So, always in my opinions, it fits greatly. I think I like the first opening a tad more, but still I really liked this new one as well. The animation in it too, especially the starting scene with blood running through Sunako's hand.

PS: Sth I forgot to mention before. Natsuno's dad pissed me off SOOO much. Dude that's not how to treat your child when he's ill. You should stay by his side like ALL the time, especially when you see he's about to DIE! meh... he even through away the protection charms... *baka da nee!*

Finally, Shiki has started again.
I like the new opening, especially the animation, and the ending is even better. Great episode, very exciting as always.

But meh, I hope it catches up to the manga soon.
