Synopsis

Ajin are humans that cannot die. Seventeen years ago, they first appeared on a battlefield in Africa. From then on, more of their kind are discovered within the human society. Their rarity in appearance means that, for experimental purposes, the government will generously reward anyone who captures one. In the present day, for what a certain high school student expects to be a typical summer holiday, his life is about to turn unexpected...

Thread should remove the movie part. This is for the TV show discussion, not movie. The movie already debuted months ago in theaters.

I'm not really sure. From what I've read, it seems like Netflix Japan will be streaming the episodes 3 days after the broadcast but the other regions will be getting the whole show when it ends. I could be wrong...

This looks like it will be great, but unfortunately I won't be watching this. More like I can't since it's exclusively on Netflix and it generally doesn't come until after its broadcast. That's how Polygon Pictures operates seeing that they have a partnership with Netflix Japan.

I agree. This seems to be primarily about the TV series and it's confusing if the movie and OVAs are specifically mentioned in the heading. Therefore I've changed the "Description" to match the standard I've been using for Series Discussion threads, by simply putting the season there. Of course if some of the discussion here ends up including mention of those, it's okay (as long as spoiler tags are used when appropriate), but I'm also keeping the separate Movie discussion thread open (/forumtopic-934041/ajin-part-1-shoudou-movie-discussion)

I'm somewhat interested in seeing this, since I've been reading the manga. I haven't had a Netflix subscription in years though. Guess they might suck me in for this (just as Hulu sucked me in for OPM )

This and Raikanzen are shows I won't be watching. Looks great and probably is great too, but lack of time and streaming is just something I can't deal with. I'm watching enough Anime for the season and i'm okay with that

I wish Netflix would simulcas thist like they are in Netflix Japan. They should do that here too! *sigh* But I will wait until they upload the full series, I'm not watching it on the darkside. I read the manga, so it's not like I'll be missing out on anything anyways.

Now I am both sad and excited. Sad i have to wait, but glad I will get to binge it all out.

I do wonder why they are doing it that way. Truth is, if they simulcast it, they'd get more money out of me (if I didn't drop it) and that's also more time they have to distract me with trying other things and maybe hooked again for even longer. If they just load it all at once, then they're likely to just get one-month of my money, as I'll watch it over a few days and be gone.

Exactly.

Well it just boggles my mind that Netflix would decide to do the simulcast only in Japan, when they already have the TV broadcast there, ideally Japan doesn't even need the simulcast. If Netflix is still trying to stick with their notion of only adding stuff once it's finished, they should stop that when it comes to anime. Simulcasts is now a stable here in the west, Netflix should have the simulcast here as well. It's not like there's any licensing issues over here, they own the damn license! They can do whatever they want!!

They should know anime fans like simulcasts and that we consider that a necessity at this point. It's different than putting up all the episodes of a live action show because we have access to satellite and cable, we can watch those shows as they air. With anime, it's different because the online outlets are the only outlets we got, which is why we rely on simulcasts. People won't wait for Netflix put up all the episodes, they will go to the darkside instead. Netflix should know this!

Was excited about an anime as I have been reading the manga here on CR. It's unfortunate that the production is all CG. The characters are animated as just slightly better than "Knights of Sidonia" but still very choppy. It's disappointing and distracting from the story.
