Funimation's License for Shiki Anime Expires on June 30

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda

Funimation announced on Sunday that it will remove the Shiki anime from its catalog on June 30.

Funimation describes Shiki:

As citizens of a secluded village die off in alarming numbers, the head doctor tries desperately to save them—but his efforts are in vain. Panic and disillusionment run rampant as loved ones' corpses rise from the grave with an insatiable thirst for human blood. Haunting and hallucinogenic, Shiki stares into the hearts of both the hunter and the hunted—and blurs the line between man and monster.

The 22-episode series premiered in 2010, and adapts Ryu Fujisaki's manga adaptation of Fuyumi Ono's original horror novels. Funimation streamed the series as it aired in Japan, and released it on DVD and Blu-ray Disc in 2012. Crunchyroll added the anime to its catalog last August.
