Shiki Horror Manga Ends in Japan
Announced: Jun 3, 2011
The Manga that inspired an Anime Series will come to an end. According to an ANN article, Fuyumi Ono and Ryu Fujisaki have ended their Shiki horror manga in the July issue of Shueisha’s Jump Square magazine, which was released on Friday. Ono began writing the original Shiki novels in 1998, and Fujisaki began adapting the story in manga form in December 2007. The series will have a total of 11 volumes. Approximately 2.2 million copies of the manga have been printed.
Sotobamura is a small village with around 1300 residents; so small the village isn’t even connected to a single highway. An isolated village in which old customs, such as the burial of the dead, are still practiced. One day, the bodies of three people are found dead. Although Ozaki Toshio, the village’s lone doctor, feels uncertain, he treats the deaths as a normal occurrence. However, in the days following, the villagers start to die one after the other.
This is a great piece of work. The storyline was gripping and will suck you in from the first chapter.
Arigato! Fuyumi Ono and Ryu Fujisaki for bringing forth an excellent manga.
