I cried during this episode, it was too heartwrenching. I think that tying the shikis and leting them get burned by the sun is the most cruel, painful and slow way to kill them. What that Hasegawa guy did was actually the last act of humanity that he could have done towards the shiki, He gave them a quick death, because he knew that it was too cruel to let them agonize like that. in a way, I respect him for that. Just who are actually the real demons ?

exactly what I though... ignorant people are going to think, that Shiki is a meaningless horror vampire Anime. But even if this never could happen in reality.... there's so much truth about it, I could cry.

Danm, watching this episode totally made me miss the awesomeness of the anime and the amazing bgm. I had to feel bad for Nao though, having to touch that officer butt for so long.

Same here.While watching it I thought:"Maaaan,I soooooooo miss this anime!!!" . And what's more,this whole episode was totally awesome. Filled with madness and brutality xD This Sadafumi guy might become one of my favourites.

Wow, I feel so effing bad for poor Nao-san, she hates herself but doesn't want to die, she loved her family but still wanted to kill them to be with her.
Her story is one of those that I believe most people would act the same way upon in this situation, her death was awful, the character that killed the most of them with such brutality, I personally think he was more terrifying than the Shiki themselves~

People become suspicious all suddenly. I don't think those two men who just got bitten will become okiagari, but they decided to kill them anyway.

This special is another "shiki"-ish episode for me. Tragic and sad.

I miss Shiki so much now.;_;

The episode was so amazing, but just nasty and gross too. D: I really felt for the poor Nao.. and the cruelty of the villagers is just so eww.

Really, Shiki just did such an excellent job in showing how evil humans can be, and this special just emphasized it so much better than the real show. Totally rewatching the entire thing soon (most likely after the second special airs).

You think you wouldn't do the same ? Ohh please, don't be so obvious. That is the true nature of humans, we all are predators, we are omnivorous, we kill or eat anything we want. And most importantly the mass always overcomes the minority. If I would be one of the vampires, I wouldn't be with other idiots.

This episode was excellent. It totally gave me a throwback to how great Shiki was.

I believe the guy who was staking all of the shiki at the end was trying to put them out of their misery. Since all of the other humans were just going to let them rot in the sun. I love how this episode shows the madness that the humans brought upon themselves.

The humans were so fixated on taking revenge that they've forgotten everything Toshio had told them. He taught them how to position the stake properly so that the shikis wouldn't have to suffer. And, yet. ;__; And humans only turn into shiki once they've died (which is most likely caused by the blood loss). Killing those two guys who just got "nipped" was just inhumane.

Shikis kill. Humans kill. It's the point where we don't know which side is right anymore. Though you have to admit, the humans really went overboard.

Anyway, this was a very nice special. I teared up at the end when Haesgawa staked the shikis to put them out of their misery. ;~;

What a little masterpiece of an episode this was. If this OVA was just this one episode, I'd give it a 10/10.

Hopefully the next episode is this good.

Kinda angered me during the series that we didn't see any feelings/humanity left in the Shiki (All they did was scare people, sneak around, and kill/feed - other than Tohru), and then at the end we're supposed to feel conflicted because all of a sudden they feel scared.

Either way, good show. Go Humans.


This. They were feeding off people for about 18 episodes with no remorse whatsoever, and now we're supposed to feel sorry for them?
Yeah right, hand me a bag of stakes, I'm going in.

The end did get me a little bit, with the bartender showing mercy.

I cried and had hard time sleeping after watching this at midnight! For a second I thought my heart won't handle all of this. How this ended, I could applaud for Hasegawa for not losing what left of his sanity and humanity.

Dude I hear you, I'm feeling ALL the emotions right now.

And I'm not sure if this was the correct thing to do, but this episode was labeled 20.5 so I watched it directly after 20 instead of waiting till I finished the series. I don't think I could finish the show right now anyway...might have to pick up something light and fluffy to watch before I can even think of sleeping, haha.

Anyway, this was a fantastic OVA, I guess they didn't really cover this event in the main series? I'm glad we got to see the actual hunt in the pipeline, and framing it in Nao's memories hit me right in the emotions. Hasegawa's decision to save the dying Shiki from their agony was a really powerful move, for while Nao also made the decision to kill a number of people, she did it for her own benefit, while Hasegawa was relieving the suffering of dying people in their final moments. I haven't been too much of a Nao fan, so I was glad to be able to forgive her in the end, through Hasegawa.

yay i knew this would be a Nao episode.

really powerful episode, it showed that shiki are human jut a different kind of human with restriction.

they didn't lose any memories, feelings or etc.

they're still the same when they're alive.

makes me sick those bastards were laughing and singing while killing them endlessly.

seriously how fucked up is that?!?!?!

if most of the shiki's have the ability of a "jinrou" i bet these fucking humans won't be laughing now.

i feel sorry for Nao having to suffer like that.

but she did kill her family, but in the end she just wanted happiness for everyone.

i guess somethings are just not gonna happen.

and Hasegawa doing the right thing and just ending it, what's the point of putting them on the sun when the first few people you saw you already killed them.

truly a heartbreaking episode, and this is why i love Shiki.

it evokes our different emotions throughout the episodes.

watching episode 21 now, guess i just played them in order since it was assigned in the aniplex blu ray.

would like to see more Megumi, Kaori, Akira, and maybe Yuuki too :P

Wow, that was intense. Really gripping stuff.

Hasegawa and his wife are probably the only ones left there with a shred of true humanity left.

I'm glad this focused on Nao. I liked her and wondered what the rest of her story was like. Plus, it shows how the rest of he village went about doing away with the Shiki. Looks like there's a Toshiro copy among them, lol.

Sadly, it was a cruel one... The humans really went out of their minds during their war against the Shikis. I'm glad at least some of them were disgusted doing all this. Really, the only ones not showing any remorse were the women.... Even that one female's husband did better than she did with giving the Shiki mercy.

Great episode.

One of the best episodes of the entire series. Utterly chilling. You never thought you'd feel so bad for the monsters going around murdering people, did ya?

It's so rare for specials like this to be this good.

So many emotions in this episode; one of the best anime eps I have seen in my life. Almost cried when Nao died; even though she killed her family. Those humans prove they are nothing better than the Shiki.

My goodness, that was insane.
They're all fucking crazy.

Although cruel, I think it would be better if they could just cut the shiki heads off, it would save them a lot less pain than they were going through having stakes hammered into their chest. This was really difficult to watch because of how desperate all the shiki wanted to live, especially the part where the yellow shirt guy said, "I'm next." The part where they were burning from the sunlight was gruesome and makes me nauseous. This special did a great job at portraying how humans are monsters, despite already having the last few episodes do the same thing. Nao's story though, I still don't care much about. Even though she feels remorse for killing her family, it doesn't change the fact that she did...

I'm all for killing them since they deserved it but having them burn to death was a bit too much (plus they killed those two guys just b/c they got bit without a second thought). Felt no sympathy for the vamps since they were ass holes and had it coming but the humans are starting to at like monsters themselves.

Oh yeah and the humans wasn't killing others humans and the humans are the hero's because killing is the only way to live,

Bullshit

The shiki have no other choice but to drink blood of other humans in order to continue living it's no different what we as humans do to other animals to eat in order to live another day,

The shiki didn't do it out of hate or fear it was because they have no choice but to.

If they was mindless monster like those things from dead space or was like zombies that couldn't think for them selfs then I'd under stand but the shiki didn't change In personality or was brain washed, they was told that they was shiki and had to drink blood in order to live or die and everything on this planet does that we eat in order to live,

The humans killed the people in the temple with out trying to have a look if he was there and the only reason the villagers killed them was because they was related to the monk and everyone in the temple was innocent and was murdered by the humans you claim to be hero's and not to mention the humans killed there fellow villagers in the pipes just because they was bitten once,

Also the doctor didn't show any emotion when he was experimenting on his wife when she turned she was begging him to stop and he continued with a poker face hell he didn't even cry or say I'm sorry while doing it to her he didn't even show any remorse when the shiki killed his mother.

Also there was an old man being controlled by he shiki and was told to kill the doctor but failed and was about to be killed by the bearded bastard and the doctor tried to stop them but they killed him for being a spy, not trying to tie him down or nothing.

The shiki are the victims of this series and this series shows us humans are more monster then the actual monsters, hell they was smiling when they let the shiki burn in the sun, yeah hero's with mercy.

We kill our fellow man every day over -

What we look like
Where we come from
Rich or poor
Our cultures
If you Stand out to much you get bullied

So no humans are the villains of the series and this series clearly shows it.

And every human who was killing he shiki are the true monsters

One of the only series I can think of where the extra episodes were actually better than the series itself. I almost dropped this show halfway, but I'm glad I didn't because the last few eps + the specials were amazing.

This episode is probably the most distressing I have ever watched. I love it for that but it shows you that normal people can be the real monsters.

All in all I loved the episode despite the repulsive nature of the townspeople..

Nao was one of my favorite characters, so this episode really made me sad.

I just felt so bad for her throughout the whole thing, the whole scene where they were crawling through the pipe lines and then getting stuck and then getting dragged out one by one had me on the edge of my seat. I was hoping Nao would escape somehow but of course she didn't ;-;.

Also tying them up like that and just letting them burn was cruel. I'm really glad that one guy showed them mercy and gave them all quick deaths.

The humans were the real monsters in this ep.
