So I just finished watching Shiki, and I really liked it.
The artstyle bugged me a little, how they had drawn the face shapes/eyes/and bodies sometimes, but i could overlook pretty much all of it. The story was good enough to make up for it.
Even though it was the gory brutal parts that caught my interest in the beginning and made me watch it (I saw this: and got intersted.) it was the first half of the anime that I liked the most. In the first ten episodes or so it was more of a story about an unsettling/slightly creepy mystery story with some supernatural tones, and I really dig that. The second half was good too, but a little more straight forward. The moral and base conflict was more or less the same as in for example Tokyo Ghoul, but that doesn't mean it's bad. One last thing I liked about this was that there wasn't barely any unnecessary "fan-sevice". Sure, most of the characters were busty/ripped and such, but there were few weird camera angles and sexual indications. I actually can't remember more that two or three when I think about it like this atop of my head, and those were more or less relevant for the story (except for one, but I can overlook that). Goodie goodie! I'm so tired of all this unnecessary fan-service. I get it, you got boobs/abs. Now please carry on with the story.
Anyway, why am I rambling on about this? Well, as the title says, I am looking for suggestions for more animes to watch. I really like these kind of mysterious, mind game, creepy animes, and if there's gore that's only a plus. I want a story that'll make you think.
So yeah, a lot of me just reviewing Shiki, but yeah... If you know any other anime like this, that is short (that's preferable to me cus if it's too long I probably won't watch it through. around 20 episodes are good.) I'd love to hear about it. And has anyone else here seen Shiki and wanna talk about it?
