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 .

The first episode features Nao Yasumori who got infected and 'died' and after coming back as a shiki. She does something she shouldn't have which ended with drastic results.

The shiki specials were really good enough said.

When you start realizing what's inside her head you notice it's more of a grey area and not just black and white. I can't go into spoilers but i'd watch it for yourselves. 21.5 is interesting as well, it get's a bit ...
