Hīrōbites – Megumi Shimizu, vampire victim

Let’s celebrate Megumi’s birthday

Imagine a hot summer in a quiet little village; in our story, the village is called Sotoba, a quaint little ‘normal’ countryside hamlet. New neighbors move in and a series of mysterious deaths begin to spread throughout the little community. The symptoms include cold- as well as flu- like symptoms and tiredness and there are insect-like bites usually on the neck…. This sets the setting for the anime Shiki.

Doctor Toshio Ozaki, dean of the little clinic/hospital in town at first suspect this disease an epidemic, but as his investigation on the deaths continue and the body count rises, he becomes sure that the disease is actually caused by a creature called a Shiki (Corpse Demon), a vampiric being. At the same time a teenager named Natsuno Yuuki also begins to picture together what is happening. It is up to them and a few others to try to save the village and to eradicate the Shiki.

One of the victims of the Shiki curse is our birthday girl, Megumi Shimizu. Born and raised in Sotoba, she hated the little town and just wanted to get away and go to university. She dreamed that she would be scouted and then become part of the show business lifestyle. Nothing in her ‘deadbeat-of-a-town’ interested her except Yuuki and the large house on top of the hill. She goes missing on the 11th of August, last seen by Seishirou Kirishiki. The whole town search for her and she is found on the 12th on the mountain. The villagers call Dr. Ozaki and he goes to Megumi’s house to give her an examination. He finds nothing wrong with her physically, but there is a concern because she won’t eat anything. Strangely there is no fever, and the worst thing on her is a few insect bites. She does seem to be a little anemic and Dr. Ozaki decides to draw some blood. Megumi says that she is sleepy. When asked, she says all she can remember is talking to Seishirou Kirishiki. To find out her fate, watch the anime Shiki!
