Description:
Sotoba is a village "surrounded by death", a small traditional Japanese village who's primary industry is creating grave markers out of the Fir trees that surround the isolated town. On one particularly hot summer, people start dying in droves, with some people living with the rotting corpses of their family for weeks before their own bodies are discovered by neighbors. Meanwhile, the residents begin to gossip about the new family who moved into the newly built mansion atop a mountain in the town. As the death toll mounts, the doctors of the town suspect it to be a new type of epidemic, until they begin to see the figures of the deceased walking in the night.

Shiki blurs the line between good and evil, following a story that has no true protagonists or antagonists, but rather two sides attempting to survive in a deadly environment. Can one be called evil because they didn't starve to death?

    What a great manga. It took a while to pick up the pace but when it did, damn did it fly.

    @erihani if my opinion counts, I love both equally; the manga is pretty damn different from the anime in some aspects so I'd say it's worth reading regardless

    one thing the manga doesn't have is definitely the amazing soundtrack though lmao

    Glad I had this saved well before the Batotopocalypse, I'd hate to see this masterpiece get lost. It's one of my favorite series.
