In the winter of 1995, Mikiya Kokutou passes a young woman during a late night stroll in the snow. Clad in a striking white kimono and bearing an enigmatic gaze, Shiki Ryougi smiles at Mikiya who stares back with curiosity. Later that spring, Mikiya notices Shiki at his high school entrance ceremony, and they become acquaintances through lunchtime conversations. As Shiki begins opening up to him, Mikiya learns about her unique upbringing. Meanwhile, a series of unprecedented murders takes place across Mifune City. Seemingly related, these murders are particularly brutal and warrant a large scale police investigation. Because of his cousin's work as a police investigator, Mikiya is given insight into the investigation. Concerned for Shiki's safety, Mikiya decides to monitor her actions, but in doing so, he stumbles upon a truly frightening discovery that changes his life forever.

ED1: “Kimi ga Hikari ni Kaete Iku” by Kalafina


Excellent atmosphere. Simple, well-paced story. Great OST. Major characters get proper introductions. Worth watching as a character study.


It was ok,but not something wow


Impeccable presentation and has moments where the character-work matches the stunning visuals, but not nearly often enough. Lacks substance.


For once, we see Shiki smile =)


Took me about half an hour to realise that this was the backstory of the first movie… Still doesnt make sense. Its fun though! xD


Provides some much needed information and structure which the first movie didn’t provide.


Was alright. One of the better parts of the series.



    I make bad encodes and whine about subs and if I'm feeling particularly memey, I make bad subs too!
