What a surprise!! I love Ryu Fujisaki and I love what I've read of Shiki. I hope this turns out good.

The only good horror anime I've seen so far was the Mononoke TV series. Curious how this will turn out.

The story revolves around an isolated mountain village, steeped in ancient traditions, whose population of 1,300 starts dying in droves due to mysterious causes.

First thing I thought was Higurashi but with vampires. If we can get anything close to the Ghost Hunt's Bloodstained Labyrinth arc then I'm sold. At the very least, the cover art is interesting.

I'll give this one a try based on Fuyumi Ono's prior work with Twelve Kingdoms and Ghost Hunt. Both are excellent which gives me hope for Shiki. (Is that the full name of the series, by the way?)

Shiki is the full name. The kanji mean "corpse demon".

I'm very excited about this. *_* Definitely one of my most favorite series.

Someone needs to fix in the article where it says "Houshin Engi and Soul Hunter", they are the same series. "Soul Hunter" is just the American name for the anime.
