My name is Unai, and I'm an Anime Wiki Manager. Our team helps wikis across the platform, and I've been assigned to this community. I'm here to provide assist in site management, tools, promotion, counter-vandalism, etc.; as well as serving as a liasion between Staff and the community.
Been years since I watched this, wondering if you recall any specifics about the turning process in this universe.
Was it simply being bitten / drained-to-death by a vamp or did you need to drink their blood? I only seem to remember victims being bitten/buried/rising but maybe there was some small mention of counter-feeding.
No, I can't remember any percentage or anything. But I'm pretty sure they said that if both parents died without rising, there's no chance their child could. Nao could transform, her husband couldn't and her child couldn't either.
The page for Shiki states: "It has been proven that not all bitten humans rise up as none of Nao's family rose up as shiki despite having their blood drained by her. This indicates the bitten needs to have a quality about them that makes them want to rise up."
My impression from watching Shiki was that you rise depending on genetics, as this is what Nao believes after none of her family rose, and what Megumi seems to believe due to her refusing to feed on her family.
My question is whether you may know of some piece of lore which could shed further light on this?
