FUNimation Delays ‘Shiki’ SAVE Anime Release

2 min read

FUNimation announced the Shiki : Complete Series S.A.V.E. (Blu-ray/DVD Combo) edition awhile ago but things are changing as the release date for it has been postponed. The series was originally slotted to land on May 20th, 2014, but according to retailer updates now, it’s scheduled for a June 17th, 2014 release.

That series, during its original simulcast, was essentially our top show of the year for 2010 and it got a solid DVD and Blu-ray release previously. It’s taken awhile for a complete collection to land, but it’s being done as a SAVE set, which means priced down to just $34.98. And that’s for a beautiful, creepy and unusual twenty-two episode series that gives you vampires in the way they ought to be presented. If there’s a show I’ll do the hard sell for, it’s this one. Take the chance, watch it late at night all alone in the dark and savor quality scary horror anime in the classic sense.

Plot concept: When citizens of a secluded village begin dying off in alarming numbers, the sole hospital’s head doctor tries desperately to save his patients—but his efforts are in vain. Entire families are wiped out while others desert their homes. All hell breaks loose as the villagers discover their loved ones’ corpses are rising from the grave with an insatiable thirst for human blood. Haunting, hallucinogenic and unnerving to the core, Shiki stares into the hearts of both the hunter and the hunted. Who is safe when the urge to kill in order to survive blurs the line between man and monster?
