Shiki, The Vampires Are Cool Again Anime, Promo Up Now

Shiki, the anime that is making vampires cool again for me, has had it’s promo posted. Here be the link to it.

Shiki is about a village of roughly 1,300. Slowly, the people start to die off, and they eventually find out there is a vampire attack going on. That right there already makes it better than the other vampire shit the US has been releasing (Twilight). But what do I think based on the promo? well, there wasn’t really a whole lot to it. I know the art isn’t that bad, and there are some people that like to talk all at the same time, but that is about all I know from it.

Shiki is slated to start airing July 8th in Japan. ALso, it will probably be acquired by FUNimation based on the track record of Fuji TV anime.

Shiki Getting Anime From Aniplex

Shiki is about a mountain village of 1,300 people who start dying in groups. They later find out that they are being attacked by vampires.

Sounds interesting, and Aniplex is the company behind the anime adaptation, so expect good things. Plus, anime vampires are so much cooler than Twilight ones, so there is another reason to watch it.

Currently, there is no set date, but I am going to guess summer 2010.
