If love existed, we wouldn’t be so soft and easy to ruin…
With Metanorn still in standby mode, everyone’s stuck secretly writing posts until the anticipated day of our revival. Who knows when this will actually be posted. Tomorrow? The day after tomorrow? A week from now?!? (EDIT: it ended up being “tomorrow” XD) Regardless of when or where this reaches your eyes, this is going to be one hell of a creepy post.
I’m sure you’ve all wondered how to preserve your very own Shiki to experiment on, and that’s where I am here to help. After watching this totally legit shaky webcam documentary, I have all the answers to your okiagari-killing needs. All you need to do for some D.I.Y. dissection is follow these simple instructions~
Step one is to locate a dead body, complete with bitemarks from an okiagari. It doesn’t have to be dead, it can be dying, as long as you let the okiagari drain the blood out. Whatever tickles your fancy! Be sure to hide the body away from those who frown upon human experimentation (i.e. everyone). If need be, just tell them not to come to work.
Your dead body may look something like this
Step 2 is to wait. Within 72 hours your subject should show signs of something other than smelly, putrid decomposition. Your subject will start to seem more and more like they’re alive. Fell free to even nuzzle them affectionately for dramatic effect. After all your empathy is finally gone, get out your video camera to film a home movie you will watch over and over again with the whole family. Or…what’s left of it.
Step 3 is crucial. Once their flesh starts melting off their face during sun exposure (you will notice this because THEY ARE BURNING ALIVE), you must quickly move your subject to a nice, dark room. Be sure to strap them down, because the transformation is almost complete. You wouldn’t want your undead lover to escape and live a semi-happy now, would you?
Dark, dank operation room..Whew, that’s much better!
Once they awaken, the fun begins! Fill needles with whatever the hell you can think of and just basically “mess shit up.” Feel free to go crazy with any sharp object imaginable – I guarantee it will have no effect. Once your subject regains the ability of speech, be courteous enough to tape their mouth shut so they can’t scream. It’s easier to concentrate without them screaming in agony (unless you prefer hearing that~).
The last and crucial step is to figure out how to kill a shiki. Hint: use a stake. Once complete, post your video to youtube and force your best friend to clean the mess! Perfection! What have we learned today, kiddies? Shiki are afraid of metallic noises, buddha statues and can be killed with stakes. Brilliant.
…Yeah, just wait until the end thoughts roll around. Oooo boy.
*ahem* Breaking away from that little “tutorial,” there were some other things that I can’t exactly NOT summarize. I already screwed up the order of events by doing this, so I’d better give you the whole summary. XD Aside from Toshio going (even more) insane, this episode has Lady Gaga. YES, Lady Gaga. She is strutting her stuff in Sotoba out at night, running into Atsushi (assistant to the big, burly, store clerk who punches people). Incredibly turned on, he invites her upstairs to talk with him. Well…can you really blame him?
She also goes by the name Mai Valentine from time to time
From the eyes of the nurses, Toshio is a wreck. One of the nurses, Yuki, goes missing and he responses with “sou desu ka…” and quietly plods away. Naturally, when nurse Satoko hears him be so cold, she starts to cry. The other nurses make excuses for him, but we all know the truth…
Tokujiro (AKA crazy moustache man) has died, of course. Seishin relays the news to his father (AKA pandaeyes) who just kind of chills in his bed and sends his son to go deliver a letter to the Kirishikis. Once again, more hints that Panda…er.Seishin’s dad knows more than he lets on.
Shiki has a big cast of characters, but they certainly die quickly (I mean, even the main character is dead). Kaori gets a rather chilling night visit from Megumi who brings bad news: she killed her father. Kaori calls Akira, and they race around the house to find their father collapsed on the floor, dead. The mom is more like “Ugghh…mendoukusaiii~ *dials clinic*” to which the new Doctor comes right away. I think we can safely say he is a shiki who is getting allowed into houses in order to…well..do that shiki thang.
Lastly, Megumi has a chat with Yoshie (a Kirishiki servant) about Natsuno. She rather bluntly tells her that he hasn’t risen yet and that big city folk cremate their bodies. She starts to sob, and Masao just has to stick his ugly mug into the shot to insult Natsuno. Megumi brutally assaults him, calling him weak for not even hunting after victims properly. Megumi mentions that the okiagari have a big-city unit of okiagari who kidnap people from the city….NICE!
HEY GUYS, AFTER A BUNCH OF EPISODE I’M FINALLY BA–*ROCKED*
To lessen up your nightmares….:
There, now isn’t everything all better?
Woops, guess you’ll be having nightmares afterall.
YOUR FATHER IS DEAD! AHAHAHA! HAHAH! HAHAHA! *crashes into window*
Today’s moral: religion is bad for you
TEEN SEISHIN AND TOSHIO!!!! THIS NEEDS TO BE A SPIN-OFF SERIES RIGHT NOW!!
End Thoughts: …Guys, that was probably the creepiest episode yet. I have a whole thing with the “creepy human experiments” concept where I find it…really grotesque. And I LOOOOVE it. I love seeing normal people become absolutely demented! You should’ve seen my face, I was grinning ear to ear when he was killing his wife. I literally let out a fangirl squeal. I haven’t seen such a creepy doctor since I played Bioshock (and he was utterly horrific). I really want to see more psycho Toshio now that I know he has it in him. I was convinced the blood-splattered Toshio was a teaser, but it WASN’T!
What makes the scene so great is that Toshio is, no, WAS, a good man. A loyal, hard-working, intelligent man. He has fallen a long, long way to get here – meaning things didn’t have to be this way. Sadly, he slipped along the way and now sees no problem in hacking up his wife. Did he show a shred of remorse or discomfort while doing it? Did he ever waver? How did something so brutal come so naturally to him? He may be a doctor, but doctor’s don’t operate on conscious patients who can’t use anesthetics. When Kyoko finally regained the ability to speak, he taped her mouth up. That really did it for me. He willingly fought back against something that may have brought back his human side had it continued. He is literally trying to kill any human emotions left inside in order to do this. Because he believes it to be the right choice. Do YOU think he made the right choice?
Aside from that, I have only just about a million things I’m curious about. The new doctor, the funeral home, Seishin’s dad, Natsuno rising up, Masao, and and…GAH! Overload! I could speculate for hours and hours about what could happen next! In fact, I could talk about this episode for days. I swear, all comments will be get a wall of text as a reply. <_< *scares everyone away* Hnnghhh so good.
Also, I will love you forever if you know the song my opening one-liner with the 6 thumbnails is from.
Preview: Shiki leaves me hanging AGGGAAAIIINNNN!!! The next episode shows Toshio and Seishin splitting up, which does not end well. Seishin commits suicice(?!?!?!) and Toshio is surrounded by okiagari…Oh my God, guys…guys…I can’t take this…I…I…it’s too good! PLUS NATSUNO HAS RISEN AHHHHHH *foams*
