Title: Shiki - Corpse Demon
Based On: A novel series by Fuyumi Ono (Twelve Kingdoms, Ghost Hunt)
Story:Natsuno Yuuki is forced to move from his pleasant city to a quiet, presumably boring village called Sotoba, where there also is a hospital helmed by one Toshio Ozaki. Shortly thereafter, the Kirishiki family moves into a abandoned old mansion and shortly thereafter begin the mysterious deaths. The story revolves around Toshio and Natsuno as they deal with the deaths that surround them.
- First and foremost, this will be Gackt's first regular role in an anime series, as he plays a member of the strange Kirishiki family.
- The man in charge is Tetsurou Amino, best known for directing Macross 7, the SD Gundam OVAs, and the recent Lupin III: The Last Job special.
- Yasuharu Takanashi will be composing music-- he's worked on titles like Naruto, Fairy Tail, and Gantz, so you should expect a pretty solid BGM.
J.C. Staff anime adaptation of author Fuyumi Ono's Ghost Hunt, so I'm looking forward to Shiki-- even though horror really doesn't do it for me most of the time. How about you?
