hahah the village fucking died after all. AND FUCK YES I KNEW MEGUMI WAS GONNA DIE EPICALLY i reli wish it was natsuno who staked her tho. natsunos explosion was so win. i wish he was wearing his BA shoes tho. glad sunako lived. hope shes a genius and tries that all over again. beard guy's death was awesome too. this anime was full of win. id give it a 9/10 cuz it was slow in the beginning and cuz they let useless idiots like muroi and kaori live.

love old school vamps this was awesome and refreshing.

I really have to agree that the episode felt rushed and in my opinion the anime could have been made even better, but nevetheless it was awesome. The characters were great, the feeling which it managed to provoke in me were superb. It' like... like... the village slowly dying out. End for everybody (almost) and everything. I love dark stuff. Muhahahahaaaaaaa.

yeah , this anime should've been done in like 26 episodes , it would've been much better

Wow! Brutal ending (as in violent not in quality). Some graphic demises there - Megumi's come to mind.

Perhaps it's me but quite a lot during this episode found myself wanting Sunako not to get caught or killed despite her being a central cause of all the vampirism. They did a good job in making her come across as more of a sympathetic victim here then Bam! - out come the fangs!

Great end to a great series in my opinion.

I was expecting more of this last episode, but it was ok even if it was too rushed. I was expecting a confrontation between Megumi and Kaori. They didn't showed us how Akira got away. I know it was Natsuno who rescued him, but I expected that they could show us.
I just knew that Seishin would become a jinrou since he was bitten by who knows how many times, but seeing him killing a massive man like Ookawa knowing that he's a fragile person was just wrong. Natsuno was so sad seeing Tohru and Ritsuko lying down and even if he died with a BANG his sacrifice was pointless. I also didn't imagine that the staff could make a mistake and show a jinrou who was killed by a bullet just to show Tatsumi who was shot from head to toes and was still alive. Also what happened with the man that was hypnotized by the jinrou girl to kill Toshio? Megumi's dead was indeed cruel, but I think that she got what she deserved since she was just a bitch with everyone except Natsuno when she was alive. Karma is a bitch.
I wonder what happened with the village and with Toshio?
As for Sunako I was expecting to see her dead since she killed so many humans.

am I the only person who really hates Natsuno? o_O"
..... and am I the only one that wished the shiki had 'won' in the end o_O"

I completely agree with you. If you're also a Sunako fan, then we're practically the same. :>

I hated Natsuno he was so arrogant. I just wanted to punch him in the face almost the entire time. I never was ATTACHED to Sunako, but she definately was cute and adorable, and I DID want her to live. I liked Muroi, but my favorite was DEFINATELY Megumi through the entire show.

Another question, anyone know what ever happened to that hideously drawn guy with the weird face? Did he ever get his brains busted in by his sister in law or not? IT. NEVER. SHOWED. IT.

Shiki was good, but so many characters to keep up with. ME personally, I like the end. Because it makes you think, who's really wrong in the world? The people who kill to survive, or the people who murder to survive?

Was okey. No Katanagatari quality ending, but it could've been worse... maybe.

Sunako should have got what she deserved which isn't surviving.

Megumi got what she deserved, being tortured by being ran over by cars, trucks, and being pinned by two tractors before dying.

Also, the very ending was inconclusive, most endings like this have a reporter and/or government officials talking about the situation and a possible investigation then it ends.

But there was a preview in the ending credits. What for exactly? For the specials? Weren't the specials episodes 20.5 and 21.5? The preview looked like an episode 23 to be honest.

Wasn't that scenes playing from this episodes? I thought it mainly showed the car driving away and Akira looking out the window at the burning village, the finals scenes. But I could be wrong.
Yes but that they zoomed in on that box does imply that there is something or rather someone in that box that might be the cause of the next turn of events.

This episode was pretty good but the ending left things unanswered.
What will happen to the people from the village ones they arrive in that other city, since there covered in blood stains ad all.
And any investigation around the fire and the deaths will soon conclude that people have been killed which will make the village a crime scene.
And anyone covered in blood a suspect.

I have to say poor Megumi she was killed in a very cruel way, and all she wanted was to get away from that village.
Sunako came to the conclusion that she lived long enough.
And Natsuno didn't care about his life at all his way of killing himself and that other guy was brilliant.

About this anime.
I really loved it the build up was very nice but the ending could have been better.
The slow passed story line and blood where very enjoyable and nothing seemed rushed.
The art style was unique and nice to watch and especially the hairstyles looked awesome, the fire trucks seemed purple tho.

that wasn't a preview at the end, but more of an epilogue. it felt weird since it was portrayed on such a small screen (i like it better when they take out the usual credit scenes for an epilogue but i guess no go on this one).

tatsumi has my respect for surviving for so long (but that other jinrou girl did get shot in the head so who knows)

what the?! the BEARD has fallen!! can't believe that that OP dude got pwned by Muroi of all people or Shiki to be more precise..

and wow that was intense.. so as expected almost everyone gets killed in the end.. nice ending for a great series..

but is it really the ending ?? I still saw a preview in the ending credits..

A lot of people don't seem to understand that a lot of what happens in Shiki is not linear. That person was the same one that Ookawa mercilessly staked at the end of the previous episode.

I would've been more satisfied had Sunako and Muroi died, but oh well.
Wasn't the best of endings, but still, one of my most enjoyed animes this year, loved it.
Natsuno pretty much pulled most of the strings here ROFL.
He set the fire right? I didn't think that was necessary, but still, proves how much he hated everything.

I was disappointed at how insiginficant Megumi was; well actually her death was horrificly awesome but i wanted her to see Natsuno. Small complaint there.

As for the rest, everyone goes down in flames, the twins are saved, KA-BOOM! a good end.

What DirtyRoxanne might be saying about the rest of the show is that the part from the summer season was pretty dry. The friggin' summary on MAL tells us what it takes the characters 14 episodes to prove. There were some good scenes in that part but difintely not anything close to the last quarter we have watched.

ep. - (9/10)
