Horror manga “Shiki” is getting anime adaptation

Shiki anime announced

Shiki, a horror mystery manga by Ono Fuyumi and Fujisaki Ryuu, centers around an isolated mountain village, whose inhabitants start dying because of strange reasons. Later, the cause is unveiled; it’s vampires.

The creator Ono Fuyumi is known for writing the novels Ghost Hunt and The Twelve Kingdoms. The other one, Fujisaki Ryuu, has drawn Soul Hunter manga.

It’s unknown when it will get on the TV screens. But I’m definitely looking forward to it. The character on the official site reminds me of Frederica Bernkastel from Umineko, as well as the plot. A cut-off island and people are falling mysteriously. Again, the isolated village reminds me of Hinamizawa in Higurashi.
