Shiki – Ep 15 – Fifteenth Deceit
With Episode 15, Shiki shows us that it's not afraid to be boring. How edgy! How mysterious! How dark! Also, how sick am I of these episode titles? Really, really sick.

Shiki – Ep 14 – Fourteenth Death

Shiki – Ep 14 – Fourteenth Death
Despite all the dead bodies piling up and also, uh, un-piling-up (more than fourteen, I'm pretty sure!), life continues as usual for some of the citizens of Sotoba...

Shiki – Ep 13 – Thirteenth Tragedy
Hey, everybody, remember those sad, empty weeks when no episodes of Shiki aired? Turns out it was all a tricksy plan to have episode 13 release near Halloween - and even better: everyone is in costume!

Alas, another week without a Shiki recap - sorry guys! But don't worry, I still have Shiki on my mind. Last time we rehashed what's already happened, this time let's take a look at what might be to come: the story I want, the story I'd settle for and the story I think Shiki's going to give me.

Shiki – Recap
Everyone, I have really sad news. You might want to sit down before you hear this. Okay? Ready? Here goes: Shiki is on hiatus until October 14. No new episodes, no new hair, no new developments in the Vampire Yuuki storyline. It's rough, I know. Believe me, I feel your pain.

Shiki – Ep 11 – Eleventh Slaughter
Remember back at Episode 1 when I was so fresh-faced and bright-eyed and thought Shiki would be really good? Remember how excited I was about this series? Well, the "slaughter" in the title is clearly referring to my optimism because after this, I am over Shiki and all its tricks. OVER.
