I would love some good reccomendations of anime that are similar to Shiki. Not with vampires but an anime that manages to play with the theme of good vs. evil, blurring the line between the two making the audience ponder in existential questions and what not. I hope I make myself understood.

Thanks a bunch in advance, any help is appreciated :)

There's a seperate thread for this:
I suggest you post it there.
Then I'm sure you'll find the answer within a day.

The best anime I can think of that plays with the idea of good and evil would be Monster. The villian is the embodiment of the saying 'the devil is a gentleman', and what made him evil is constantly under question. There's a few other themes in there, but I can't spoil.

Himitsu: Top Secret delves a little into this, not as deeply or as well, but is still a good series to watch.

Bokurano might qualify a little (don't be decieved by the mecha, it's really a story about the kids ploting it). They're forced to pilot that thing but it will kill them.... and they have no choice in it. Deals with their own personal issues facing death.

Towa no Quon
Fantastic Children
Guin Saga
Gunslinger Girl
Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom
Seirei no Moribito
Wolf's Rain
Shadow Star Narutaru

The one I'd most strongly recommend out of these is Guin Saga, by the way...

Definitely Fate/Zero.
Jormungand tried to play with it but ultimately failed in my opinion.
