- Shi-ki Corpse Demon
Sotoba was a quiet, secluded village where 15-year old Megumi Shimizu lived in. For Megumi, who desired the glamorous lifestyle of the city, living in Sotoba was terribly agonizing, especially with her annoying friend Kaori Tanaka (15) around. The only two things that interested her in the village were a family from the city that had moved into the mansion, and a boy named Natsuno Yuuki (15), who seemed to share the same desire to move out of Sotoba and into the city. When Sotoba was hit by a string of odd deaths which concerned the villagers, Megumi chose to ignore it, and was more excited at the fact that a family from the city moved into the mansion. One day, ignoring Kaori's remark about the dark aura radiating from the mansion, Megumi decided to pay a visit to the mansion.
Later that night, Megumi never returned to her home, and a search party was then formed to look for her. What happened to Megumi? Who are these city people? What is happening to the quiet village of Sotoba? Read Shiki and find out for yourself...
This series is about a village with a population of about 1300 people, when during one fiercely hot summer, many mysterious incidents happened one after another... Shiki is based on a best-selling horror novel by Ono Fuyumi. Fans may know of her other novels such as Twelve Kingdoms (which has been animated) and Ghost Hunt (adapated to both a shoujo manga and anime). Fujisaki Ryuu is a long-time JUMP mangaka of series such as Houshin Engi (recently released by ViZ), and Waqwaq, both of which ran in WJ.
Moderator Notes : Known Issues or Abnormalities With This Series
For the later volumes the file names don't match the display name. The current scanlator changed the numbering a little and is not accounting for the extra stories as chapters as they were by the previous scanlators. MT is keeping the old numbering for display names. We are not missing any chapters.
If you report this series (which is 100% complete) for Incomplete/Pages Missing/Etc it will just be ignored.
