Well, I'm not sure what to make of this after only one episode. It's at the very least interesting in terms of atmosphere, and I'm a fan of the genre. The only thing that annoyed me was/is the character designs. The styles seem to be mishmashed from different types and not very uniform.

It really felt a lot like some mix of Dance in the Vampire Bund and Higurashi/Ookami Kakushi, but seems be a bit more artsy than those.

Seems like something I'm willing to follow for the season though.

I've read the manga and it gets better. The character designs look better on paper than on TV.

I wouldn't say that I hated the animation but it isn't completely something I'm use to either. I haven't read the manga but it is currently on my what to read list. Though really the only reason I want to read it is because I want some idea of what is going on the series. The main characters were hard to get a hold of in a lot of aspects mainly because you really didn't get to know any of them expect for megumi, so it kind of made it hard to relate to any of them. Really I don't really know if I'm going to stick with the series I'll watch a couple more episodes to see if I will or not.

I don't know, I think this could go somewhere... it just doesn't in the first epT-T
I think it may be decent.

Very intriguing. I like how most of the anime this time around are pretty dark. Shiki is something I'll be keeping my eye on.

Is it a finished or ongoing manga?

The first episode was kind of "meh" for me, but I'm probably gonna stick with this one for its entirety, in part because it's noitaminA and I have yet to be disappointed by anything they've done. The animation of the main characters isn't really to my taste, but I'm enjoying the designs of the background characters.

The manga is still being published, but it's based on a novel, which is completed, so I have a feeling that whatever isn't in the manga will be pulled from the novel.

At the very least, that means it'll have an ending :) I'm watching it for the same reason, both noitaminA shows last season were good.

I didn't find it as anything exciting.. the only thing that even makes me wanna watch more is curiosity.

Maybe my expectations were too high but I waited for something better. This can go anywhere from this point so it could turn out as something enjoyable. We'll see.

(Thumbs down for unnatural hairstyles.)
