Hi Guys,

I'm looking for an anime that's similar to Parasyte, based on it having quite an original concept which is deep and explores/questions itself.

Are there any anime you would recommened?

Thank you!

/mushi-shi might seem like it is about supernatural creatures, but really it is about human frailties. It's a lot gentler than Parasyte though.

Shin Sekai Yori (From the New World)
http://www.crunchyroll.com/shin-sekai-yori-from-the-new-world
Far future Sci-Fi with psychic powers (but feels like a fantasy story). A group of kids discover some of the dark secrets underpinning their society and try to survive the consequences.

Puella Magi Madoka Magica

At first glance this looks like a sweet, innocent magical girls show. Do Not Be Fooled. This is a dark fantasy/psychological horror show that subverts the basic premise of magical girl shows.

After those two dark shows, here is one that is more on the hopeful side.
Gatchaman Crowds

This show asks what does it mean to be a hero. Can being a hero be crowdsourced? This show also subverts every shonen action cliche out there.

Terraformars is a great character driven piece. Terror in Resonance is also a great piece.

Have you tried Death Parade? It's airing this season. Funi has it but it's really good and it's by Madhouse the same studio that is doing Parasyte.
