As the epidemic terrorizes the quiet secluded village of Sotoba, three women have found themselves amidst the escalating crisis. Nao Yasumori is tormented by visions of the deceased; Kanami Yano must keep a secret at risk of losing a loved one; and Motoko Maeda goes through insurmountable grief as the mysterious illness spreads throughout her family.

With rising tensions testing the limits of family relationships, even the smallest of mistakes can easily sever the ties that bind .

Think of these as just regular episodes, and in not watching them, you are quite literally skipping 2 semi-important episodes in the series. My review for ...

Having stressed out just thinking how I would approach reviewing the parent show “Shiki” is enough a reason for me to get this review done beforehand, perhaps that would clear any cluttered thoughts I have left on the show.

But unlike the parent show, disbanding any minor or major drawbacks, weak character portrayals, and slow plot progression, they both go about two different yet related side stories of victims of the Shiki invasion. While the first episode takes the narrative on a Shiki perspective, ...
