Parasyte has been over for a bit now but I just recently had a discussion with my friend. He thinks that Parasyte was kind of ruined by the ending that provided very little closure( If you watched Parasyte I'm assuming you know what I mean by this. If you don't I don't mind elaborating since I did give a spoiler warning). However, I feel like Parasyte was a great series and even though many details were left out by the end. If you take a step back and think about what the series is about you'll see that Parasyte wasn't about the Parasitic creatures that all of a sudden appeared. It was about Izumi Shinich and how his bonding with Migi changed him. It was about him discovering for himself through the changes in him, around him in other Parasytes, and his changes in the way he interacts with the people most close to him what it means to be human and how his humanity can stay in tact despite all the things that have happened to him. Looking at the series like that I feel like there was closure in what the series was actually about and it was even a refreshing change from what we generally see in those kind of anime. But what do you guys think?

''And then humans and parasytes started to coexist...I guess. Oh wait: a psycho killer, mais qu'est ce que c'est?''

Ya, that was basically the ending.

I liked it. The ending included.

It felt a little rushed, but I am a sucker for nice, happy endings.

I enjoyed it, personally. I also disagree with a lot of the complaints about the show, but I'm the kind of person that usually defaults to liking anime unless something seriously turns me off to it.

I'm in the same boat as you dude. I have a friend who watched Parasyte and hated the ending, but in my opinion, it actually wasn't that bad, but it could definetly have been better. No way it ruined the series tho.

I think the execution could have been better, but from just briefly skimming the manga afterwards it seems like it was a pretty close adaptation. I also see a lot of complaints of how by the end of the series we still didn't know much about the Parasytes. I do sympathize with some viewers that have that feeling because while watching it you kind of do expect to find out more, but like I said in the original post the series was about Izumi Shinichi and not the Parasytes.

I was a little disappointed to be honest. I liked the ending but like you said, many details were left out by the end.
Things like that leave bad tastes in my mouth.

Guess I'm crazy. I liked the ending. Most anime are either shit for closure, or end without the possibility for expansion. I personally felt like it both provided closure AND the opportunity for more, down the line. Though, I'm doubtful that any more will be released.

I can understand that. While I do feel like those details weren't totally pertinent to the story considering what the writer was trying to portray at the end of the day they were details that a lot of people wanted to know that were left out so I do understand the feeling of being disappointed with that.

Yeah. Sadly, I don't think I'm going to rewatch it any time soon. >_<; I liked the soundtrack a lot too.
