PV is up on the site now. Obviously not actual animation. :heh:

Hopefully they'll do the manga justice though. It's rare to get a more "realistic" vampire story in anime.

Ono Fuyumi = epic win

Ooo the cover of the second manga is creepy! This is so on my "cant wait" list. Only thing that worries me is there are only like 19 or so manga chaps out, makes me wonder if theyll do a novel adaptation or just animate what the manga has out.

First impression: "Holy shi- Furudorika Berntaskel!?.. Lelouch!? Tantei Anime!?"

This is going to be epic and would wash away the bad aftertaste of Umineko.

I like the manga a lot, can't wait to see this animated.

amrul 2010-01-09 12:56

not related in anyway with kara no kyoukai, eh??? lol

reminds me of ryougi shiki...

Lacrimosa 2010-01-15 22:39

Ohh damn, I love this manga. Hope the anime will be able to do the art justice. <3

I'm looking forward to this anime and I'm dying to know which seiyuus are going to work in this. Does anyone know?

I dont know about the offical site but nothing is listed on ANN who doesnt even have an anime page for this yet.

This sounds interesting and like Crontica it has a real potential of washing away the less than great after taste of Umineko.

Another one on my watchlist :)

I remember dropping the manga around 2 years ago. I should give it another go (after all, my tastes have changed since then...).

Bea Rabbit 2010-01-26 07:17

heard about these from a current scanlator who scans Pandora Hearts BD
I donnow that this manga too popular and become animated.
Imma gonna read before the anime.
thanks for the info anyway.

sapphire-pyro 2010-01-27 09:11

Ugh, I need to catch up on the manga....

And I remember seeing aniplex animating this . . . . I don't remember an anime by aniplex that didn't have nice animation~

the.Merines 2010-02-04 09:08

There's a PV up on the official site.
That's what I get for not thoroughly reading the thread...

SMT 2010-02-04 09:36

Was already posted.

I'd rather like a pv with actual animation. Will be watching this cause I love stories with mystery/horror elements.

Leo_Otaku 2010-02-05 01:29

any idea on when this is set to be realeased? Spring summer or fall?

I've read a bit of the manga seems interesting I would love to see it animated.

Shiki got confirmed to be a noitaminA series, and the noitaminA block is now 1 hour long so it will air 2 shows per cour.

Yamamoto Koji, the chief editor of noitaminA, disclosed in his twitter that Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei and Saraiya Goyou will be aired together from this April.

With Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei and Saraiya Goyou to air this April, it looks like Shiki should be this summer season.

^^ I wouldn't automatically assume that Shiki will run for 2 episodes per cour based on that announcement. Another conclusion could be drawn. Such as: Shiki will run 1 episode alongside another as-yet-unannounced noitaminA show.

Leo_Otaku 2010-02-07 01:58

summer damn that is quite a long wait :(

Zu Ra 2010-02-07 09:35

As soon as I read horror I was curious. The plot seems interesting reminiscent of Higurashi . The art style is quite neat esp loved Vol 3 <splr> and Vol 5 <splr> Covers .
