I'm loving it despite the use of CG. I actually don't mind it at all. I'm excited for this, next episode can't come soon enough!

Ajin - Demi-Human / EP 1 Bokura ni wa kankeinai hanashi / “The Story Doesn’t Matter to Us”

Let me get this out of the way

Polygon send your animation out as you just did it either poorly or just cheap as possible. And then you want to sell Blu-Rays later . Netflix should complain about the qualitly but they probally knew. You can see the animation is like Sidonia but the backgrounds / ships action were better in KOS So this will keep it from being a top show for me. Too bad the story looks intersetng/

Like the OP / ED Again the story is good / even though it's CG ( Which I dont mind ) but this is poor qualitly

Ajin - Demi-Human / EP 1 Bokura ni wa kankeinai hanashi / “The Story Doesn’t Matter to Us”

Ajin - Demi-Human Opening Theme: "Yoru wa Nemureru kai?" (Can You Sleep at Night?) by flumpool


Ajin - Demi-Human EP 2

I hate the CGI but the story is good enough ! Now Knights of Sidonia and Ajin are both done by Hiroyuki SESHITA

http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/people.php?id=87386

Also Gauna / Ajin seem similiar!

Kei / Kaito are on the run and gets pursued by two low-life who already kidnapped a girl but after Kei for the bounty which ends badly for them.

Meanwhile Yū Touska / Izumi Shimomura inform the police how to look for Kei. His story looks evil as how The Ajin arev treated.

Black Ghost is very dangerous.

do I need to say more.

Death flags all over the place.

There's a lot to like about this show: The pacing is superb, the action has a nice touch, music is great, and the setting is gloomy. The CGI has its moments, while things look awful in settings we are accustomed to; like walking to school or conversations while standing still, there are moments where you might not even notice it. The action reminds me of God Eater in a way, if you can get over that one weak spot of the show, it has potential. I have to say that's the best first episode of a show I've seen in a while, let's see how things keep going.

I don't mind the CGI because I was ready for the style after watching both KOS 1 and 2 so I don't notice because the story and music are strong and carry the show well so far episode 1 background of MC and then episode 2 he didnt realize himself he was a Anjin wiich kinda makes the story interesting my guess is they say 47 confirmed on earth but guessing a lot more. I mean if you don't know and then accident and your body brings you back then hey I am an Anjin. Second episode we see the powers of voice/sound and a black phantom following the MC my guess its his subconscious self?

FIRST very nice got two Episodes ( Split from TV Special ?)

Very cool Ajin vs . Ajin (IBM's ) / Cop Shimomura vs. Nakano with Shimomura winning but Kei's sister is kidnapped by Nakano .

Kei wanys to finf pther Ajin and when Kaito returns he waits for Keu to fall asleeo and takes his phone but then gets a call from his sister but it is Satou wanting to offer him protection.

So when Kei gets to Satou's location many ?? are askede basically stating Kei knows there are bad humans but good ones too. Satou also tells him Eriko is going to the Hospital.

But it a ruse as Nakano usees his IBM to try to Tranq him.

Kei gets captured ( Vague I may have to rewatch) and is at thev LAB.

AJIN EP 5 / A Piece Of Trash That Only Asks for Help

As Satou has betrayed Kei because he dont hate humans and lets him get caught

Kei is subkected to all kind of Torture but wont kill the lab workers but the Observe galass gets scratches which only Shimomura can see.

Satou / Nakano know their plan has failedcand have to get Kei out of the Lab / but there is also another motive to Kidnap Prof Ogura from the U.S. who knows about the IBM'

His Japanese counter parts think he is arrogorant / crazy.

Another dark side of Satou he is selling human organs for transplants to get weapons.

So the so called rescue takes place / secuity is warned not to kill any Ajin's as it doent work but Satou wounds even shhots himself to die to make him stonger, He takes out the whole squad w/ o mercy . Nakano was late to Ogura;s car but kiils the security detail. Satou makes it to the lab and kills Kei to revive his strength .

Shimomura getting ready to fight



Kei being tortured



Satou getting killed to become stronger

This show has no signs of slowing down so far.

I see what you mean, this is a really good show to compare how they interpret action scenes. Although I'd be worried about giving in and binge-reading the entire manga, spoiling the entire story. I'll try not to, there's already been quite a few enjoyable surprises so far.

Wow. These two episodes were gripping and with a cliffhanger, too. I am dying to see the next one.

This is such a great story! The animation took some getting used to, though. Doing my best for holding back on the manga...but those cliffhangers are brutal. This has been an enjoyable winter season of anime.

I have been reading the simulpub but a little behind at chapter 21 ,Its not easy to read because
this one is pretty dark. But before the anime even got announced , I read chapter 1 a while back and I thought the manga story is well written and illustrated.

All I can say that guy with the hat is not a nice person at all.

The adaptation in CG is tolerable and Mamuro's performance is awesome. He really does very well with dramatic serious roles.

the last episode covered ...part of chapter 5, then 6-9

And as what the sister said , he is indeed,,,

As a 3d animator, I saw the promotion video months ago and i didn't like it. BUT after watching the movie, i really love it! Even though the colors are dull, the story and the suspense are great.

Afterwards I watched knights of sidonia and it is great too! Done by the same studio, Polygon Pictures.

Episode 6

Well, that decapitation thing makes absolutely no sense. It's also good to see that all the big shots just casually sit around their control room talking instead of doing, you know, anything at all. Apparently that huge facility only had three security guards.

I'm really starting to like Kei as a character. Though a lot of that may admittedly be due to his voice actor.

Ajin EP 6/ I'll Murder You As Well NW

Disclaimer about the gun violence

I didnt do my thoughts right away as I pondered how to put in words I have watched Black Lagoon violence / Akame Ga Kill even it's precesssdor Knights of Sidonia heroes dying in RWBY but felt troubled by the Gun Violence scenes that often reminded me of today's headlines almost too real. I took it down a couple of spots in my Top Favorites but the EP was still strong

Satou rescues Kei even though he considers him a failure . Kei is at first grateful but things turn quicly when Satou wants to Kil the rersearchers even though they tortured him and stops Satou . One researcher isc remorseful and Kei says escape and leave markings hpw to getb out Satou then turns on Kei and says I'll Murder you too! Even saying if you cut off the AJIN head's it is dime but more like when the head groes back the Human side is not the same . So a battle chase ensures with satou using his AJIN ( IBM ) to kill a resercher that hid. But Satou is surpriseed Kei used his Ajin to battlle too. Evebtually Kei throws the man off the roof into shrubs not to kill him but break his fall Meanwhile at the Lab Control room Ogura tells more about the IBM's

Kei himself is conflicted wishing he didnt go to Satou to rescue Eriko who seems to hate him.
