Mania Review: Shiki Episode #01


Like a lot of Ono's works, it's not entirely clear what the focus will be as the episode plays out, but we're teased as it progresses about what it may be and how it will all tie together. As the episode closes, things come into focus for where it'll go next but it's managed to introduce a lot of information while avoiding doing a full on info dump. Through the characters used here, we've gotten to know the lay of the land, the mystery that's just arrived in town and some of the small town personalities that likely dominate much of what goes on there. With a title of First Blood, that's definitely taken here and it opens up the rest of the series for where it will go.

The story is too old to be commented.
