First impressions here. I thought that was pretty good. Covered pretty much all the bases, horror-wise, and didn't seem to take itself too seriously.

Am I the only one who thought of Densuke (Dennou Coil) instantly when we saw Love, the dog? And Tsuna (Reborn!) when we saw Akira, the little brother? This was the studio and character designer who brought us the original season of Minami-ke, but I would never have guessed that without fore-knowledge.

Just watched episode 1. I'm liking the series so far due to the creepy and mysterious atmosphere it has. It kinda reminds me of Ghost Hunt. Not to mention, the facial expression of the characters are just disturbing sometimes.

You were right the first time, Ono Fuyumi is the author of both Shiki and Ghost Hunt. Also 12 Kingdoms.

Fujisaki Ryu is the mangaka for Shiki, probably best known for Hoshin Engi. Inada Shiho is the mangaka for Ghost Hunt.

stops with her useless GH facts

This should push people to read the ever so amazing Twelve Kingdoms (which is released in English by Tokypop), though it probably won't.

A solid first episode to get things started. Though I personally wasn't that happy when Megumi did end up dying even though it was expected. Had some negative qualities, but still felt bad for her. Didn't really appreciate the people around her, but just a case of not quite fitting into her surroundings and wanting to go to that larger world. Well either way she is gone and we'll see more from the other characters as events unfold.

Ah, I knew I wouldn't be the only one reminded of Densuke. I pretty much jumped out of my bed when I saw the dog

Because, they were. Hence why the Tv series was left unfinished too.

From the people i've spoke to who have read the Japanese novels, it has ended, though Fuyumi Ono has said she'd like to revisit the world at some point and write a few more stories. I guess that's what has a few people confused.

Anyway this is going off-topic, so to stay on topic i'd love to read her Shiki books. & i really should get around to checking out Ghost Hunt one of these days.

I got that feeling too, maybe he was thinking that he should've noticed when she wasn't in her usual spot and that might've saved her. I could see it being used as motivation for him to start poking around to see what happened (and maybe be the next one offed).

Nope, I was trying to figure out if that was on purpose or coincidence actually.

Perhaps no one should talk about what happened at the end of the episode. That's a major spoiler.

She's said the same thing about Ghost Hunt as well (well I should say Evil Spirits since thats really what the novels are called) Ono-sensei seems to love to confuse people.

Just be warned the first arc isn't very good, but it picks up after that.

Well, this was certainly an interesting first episode. It took a while getting used to the more schizophrenic bits of animation, but they probably fit, seeing those pretty much overlapped with character delusion-moments. Wasn't really sure what to think of Megumi, though in the end i accepted her character - her frustrations about being forced to live in such a middle-of-nowhere village and dreaming of better ways to come are not hard to understand. And then they went and killed her off A shame, because i thought she had the potential of being a rather interesting character given time, despite her apparent one-track mind for now.

I found the mood pretty fitting when the show was trying to set it up as creepy, and i guess it largely can be attributed to the musical score - there just seemed something otherworldly haunting about the tunes, which went a long way in helping the atmosphere. All in all, a pretty interesting presentation and setup, will be interesting to see how the story develops and how the various people are going to connect with the mystery.

My only problem was how they didn't really number everyone I liked how they did that in the manga with naming each person and giving them a number. It gave a sense at how small the place really is.
