Otakurean

Not an otaku, but just lingering passions

Shiki

Shiki is an anime that probably didn’t received as much love as it should get. Doing a simple search in my Greader, not many bloggers talked about it when it aired, in fact there’s only a handful that followed the show throughout the season which was surprising. You would have thought if Shiki gets the seal of approval by some bloggers, more will join in the fun and watch it. For me, I have not really been catching up with anime for a few years now, the last time i seriously followed an anime was Gurren Lagann and even that was like 2007!.

At least this year, I’m getting back the groove of watching anime regularly again.

Anyway more about shiki,  there are flashbacks happening along with the current timeline and is not those lame fuck Naruto or bleach flashbacks. Those flashbacks are important as it will show you how the current situation become what it is now. So in a way is story telling in reverse and in order at the same time, If that makes sense at all? Of course I know myself, I’m not particularly good in writing reviews so I’m not gonna write anyway. You can always check out other wonderful blogger’s review[1].

What I want you to do is, GO watch Shiki. Seriously, because not many people talked about it, thats why you should watch it. There’s a reason why Shiki is in Caraniel’s Top 50 anime list, in fact it was #2. If you’re still not convinced, go check out what Flomu wrote about Shiki. And i quote Flomu saying,

Shiki is last on this list because it was also the best show of the year

– Flomu

Shiki is an awesome anime, story & character wise. I wouldn’t say the OP is to my taste, I reckon it takes time to grow into you. Unlike High school of the dead OP, which was really good but the show wasn’t :P.
