Episode 1

Oh nice, they didn't do much recapping and got exactly from where the first season's finale left off with the tower collapse. Sato is so badass still.

Action and violence is pretty fluid as I had expected.

Kei hasn't changed much and is still on the run. Decent start so far, Sato still up to his clever tricks. I don't like the new OP song much, at least compared to the previous one. Season 1's OP song set a pretty high standard but the new one isn't even half as good imo.

s1's OP and ED were both pretty much topnotch, so it's gonna be hard to top that.
I don't even remember what the new OP sounds like, all I remember was that it being super quiet.. unless its my earphones.

Nagai as a character is still pretty awesome, glad to see he's back.

After a little eview we get right into it / I am so glad this is back!

First Tosaki is given one last chance to get Sato who is to release the 2nd Wave on a List of 15 important and is preparing the 3rd wave

Second Kei and Nakano are trying to figure out how to fight Sato but disagree but when Nakano plan idea meeys a deadend Kei had Tosaki looked into by a detective agency and finds his weak point . The plan to join forces which was quite a surprise but enenmies sometimes have to do things different against a bigger threat Sato who kills the first person on the list despite all the protection.

Third Kei goes to the hodpital where Tosaki's sick fiancee is and a showdown occurs but when Kei shows his skills on hid IBM Tossaki is willing to make a deal.

The OP / ED animation is jusy so cool!

What a badass....

Satou doesn't care where he is even if he's in the air to get the job done. RIP passengers and aircraft

AJIN 2 EP 2 ( 15 ) "Everyone Around Here Is An Idiot "

First best anime of the Fall / Compelling / Vicious / and lots of plot twists / yes there are a few others and the implied violence level raises the bar ( It may not be for all )

Second great job putting so much into one episode

Best way to describe by sub-plots ( May not be in order! )

1. Kei / Nakano basically doing Boot Camp which Kei despises. Later Kei argues with Nakano about just using the humans as pawns / then Kei leaves as Tosaki is looking for them

Oh BTW Nakano seems to like Shimomura.

2 Ikuya Ogura questions Kei about his IBM and has Kei bring him out and finds the IBM is more concernated. And it picks on Nakano harshly.

Ogura is quite interesting / and his cigarettes



3. Let's not forget Sato who killed his 1ST victim ( The 2nd Wave 15 List ) and threatens the 3RD WAVE . But he is disguised and boards the plane that Sakurai using an IBM To bypass Security with weapons etc Despite having tight security and body guards Sato kills the guards then Sakurai
He only destroys an Exit Door allowing the plane to land and escapes.Tosaki was against this idea.

BTW THE PLANE DID LAND in the Water / Looks like liferafts around it



Sato and his thing ( references ) for movies After the Disguise " Might Be Worthy of an Oscar Nomination"



4 After Kei had his fight with Nakano he summons his Ajin which suddenly doesnt obey him and rips into a tree qouting all of Kei's inner conflicts including the EP Title.

The OP / ED are still amazing !

AJIN 2 EP 3 "I'm Always Scared "

A somewhat calm EP ( well for Ajin ) except Name 3 is killed as Satou wants to go in order / Tosaki thought he would go after Target 14 / but since his whereabout are unknown Sato hacker tries to track down names on the list hacking the Police DEPT to see where recent deployments are.



The main theme of this EP was a lot of character insight and ( Kei ) talks with Ogura / Tosaki's head of security. Kei tells Ogura what happened with his IBM and both like sciences so they can relate easily butb Ogura tells Kei he has to change his emotions while Manato goes to him after Kei wanted to talk .





I am worried about Nakano as he is not all that bright and clumsy

Tosaki holds a trump card with him revealing Kaito is in prision and tells Kei not to pull any stunts. In fact someone kinda shady gets put into into the cell

Episode 4:

So apparently, Kei has a lot better control of his Ajin now. Glad to see the show focusing a lot on Kaito this week as well. That "Winged Ajin" got me pretty curious this episode too.

Satou's plan is still ongoing, won't be long until we see the initiation until the next stage.
