Plot : Based on Iwaaki Hitoshi's science-fiction horror manga by the same name. The 17-year-old Izumi Shinichi lives with his mother and father in a quiet neighborhood in Tokyo. One night, worm-like aliens called Parasytes invade Earth, taking over the brains of human hosts by entering through their ears or noses. One Parasyte attempts to crawl into Shinichi's ear while he sleeps, but fails since he is wearing headphones, and enters his body by burrowing into his arm instead, taking over his right hand and is named Migi. Because Shinichi was able to prevent Migi from traveling further up into his brain, both beings retain their separate intellect and personality. As the duo encounter other Parasytes, they capitalize on their strange situation and gradually form a strong bond, working together to survive. This gives them an edge in battling other Parasytes, who frequently attack the pair upon realization that Shinichi's human brain is still intact. Shinichi feels compelled to fight other Parasytes, who devour humans as food, while enlisting Migi's help.
Our Review : When speaking with others online about Parasyte, the most common piece of criticism I hear that strays away those who don't want to watch is that it's "not my genre," it's "overrated" or "it makes my stomach turn while watching some scenes." Although I agree with most of these statements, it's because of these points that people should try watching - simply because it's a genre/ story that's not seen often in this generation. Kiseijuu: Sei no Kakuritsu was a great anime to watch. If you're looking for something that's out of your comfort zone or just looking for something new to watch, I would recommend this. I promise you that after the first episode, the cliffhangers will reel you in and possibly cause you to watch episode after episode until your done.
