Shiki originated as a series of horror novels written by Fuyumi Ono (Twelve Kingdoms, Ghost Hunt). In 2007, artist Ryu Fujisaki (Hoshin Engi, Soul Hunter) announced that he would adapt the novels into a manga, which would then be adapted into a television anime series for Fuji TV's prominent noitaminA late-night content block. Funimation announced at Anime Expo 2010 that it had acquired the streaming rights to the series and would simulcast the 22-episode series on its video site as part of its agreement to simulcast noitaminA shows.
