Shikabane Hime (屍姫, Corpse Princess) is a horror manga series written and illustrated by Yoshiichi Akahito. It is published by Square Enix and premiered in the Monthly Shōnen Gangan on April 12, 2005. As of March 2014, twenty-two volumes have been released in Japan. Gainax and Feel partnered together to adapt it into an anime series. The first season, Aka (赫), premiered on AT-X on October 2, 2008. A second season, Kuro (玄), aired between January and March 2009. The anime is licensed for North American distribution and release by Funimation Entertainment.


The story starts off with a bunch of high school students, taking the dare to go up to this abandoned building that has been half destroyed by a fire. It was rumoured to be haunted. Just a rumour, right? Not when real corpses start showing up, and they start feeling things grabbing them, and finally zombies going after them! Shikabane Hime is there to save the day. The immortal girl, “Shikabane Hime,” has the mission to “kill” 108 corpses. It’s a contract she has between herself and the Buddhist monk, Keisei. After 108 corpses, she will finally get her happiness and go to heaven.
