Ajin 2 EP 4 "It's Sickening, Right?"

Another very good packed EP how they blend it so well !Next week The ___ hits the fan!!!

We shift to the prision where Kai is at and the focus is on Kotobuki who has somehow escaped prision but came back The Jail officials bury the escape and put him in Kai's cell wjere there are 3 tough priinsioners who ?? Kotobuki how he escaped but says he doesnt know Kai intrevenes but Kotobuki tells him to stay out of it later the gang leader wants to se his GF and again asks Kotobuki how to escape but gets punched this time Kai steps in and gets a beatdown before guards show up and again Kotobuki tells him stay away

Satuo has knocked off a third of the list

New Players U.S. DOD Douglas Almeida and Carly Meyers ( Yea she's an Asset ) looking into Ogura's Death ( Good luck with that )



BTW Ogura's ( who is quite alive ) Tee Shirt "He Who Moves / Not Forward / Goes Baclwards "



Well you kinda assumed Kotobuki was an Ajin / he escaped to see Satou's protest but wasnt interested He gets beat up again and Kai tries to ignore but cant and tales on the 3 gang members but is kinda too much. Kotobuki releases his Ajin and Kai who was choked can see the IBM.

Satou's planner is quite a genius.( Could be big trouble) Satou has great lines !



Kotobuki / Kei kinda get along and Kotobuki tells Kai if he needs to get out one time( to help Kei ) he shows his Ajin ( with Wings / very scary ) so that is how Kotobuki escaped !

I'm apologising in advance if I am wrong but, isn't this a Netflix exclusive in the States? If it is are you all watching it on a pirate site?
I love the show but season two is not available on netflix. If it is available legally somewhere else in the States please tell me where I can stream it legally.

AJIN 2 EP 5 / 18 "Kuro-chan, Please!"

This is not only one of the best anime of the season but easily makes it one for all-time .

I was stunned by all the turn of events. Really another how much you can put in one episode and be not only interesting but effective as well.

It does this w/ o fanservice / high school life / etc etc. Except for Kei / his sister / Kaito everybody is an adult

HIghlights ( not in any order )

1 Sato is not to be seen but down to 2 on the 15 List Tosaki gives final plans one last practice before he goes sees the US team / The Minister

Tanaka is in charge at Ajin HQDRS where the bomb is being built by Masumi Okuyama ( he's very underated )

2 Tosaki gets little help from the minister on his schedule and the minister says he soon is going to be fired anyway

3 At first glance it looks like the US team has given up / how wrong we all were OMG . There is hint of a coverup but not enough evidence to implicate him One thing for sure Douglas Almeida is in charge and Carley Myers is just a tool as you find out below

4 The US Team checks the evidence from Ogura's murder / Myers says everything is OK but Douglass sees something on the list that is missing

5 Tosaki sends in Izumi to talk ( distract ) the minister's secratary while her IBM "Kuro-Chan " to download the minister's PC file's on USB flah but it takes longer and Izumi has to ask about he watch / Fashion. it gets done

The US team watching Tosaki in the parking garage go to him and Douglas conronts him about Ogura's missing cigarettes Tosaki gives a reaction but says they have to go through proctocol if the want to question him However Douglass tranqs him After Izumi checks the USB flash she goes back to Tosaki sees what's going on and goes to rescue him even bringing out her IBM but OMG Myers is an Ajin too and she beats Kuro-Chan and fatally ?? injuring Izumi and will take for experiments but are distracted by a car and Izumigets away somehow,

Masumi / and big boom / is that a jet rocket engine in the background ??



Who said the US team was inept.



Izami vs Myers ( IBM's )



The Ajin are treated the same way in the USA

First half bored me a little this week but the second half made it up. Very thrilling with the way Kei undertook his task in order to try and secure Satou.

Poor Izumi, I hope she'll be okay. That new blonde woman (forgot her name) also has ability of Ajin..and seems to know more about using it than Izumi.

Scary...

Episode 6

Literally a cat and mouse game now to save Tosaki.

Interesting to see Izumi's past although it wasn't pleasant. I felt bad for her and honestly, I think her stepfather is among one of the worst character in the franchise.

It'll also be interesting to see if they can save Tosaki next time considering the destination they're heading.

AJIN 2 EP 6 / 19 "It's Tough Being a Lapdog"

This anime despite being Sci-Fi has a touch of realism like Special Ops

Oh I have seen plenty of TV / Movies and this anime keeps you on the edge of your seat Even when there is dialouge moments it is compelling but when the action starts its no BS at all !

I have seen lots of anime but it has kinda raised the bar again by just packing all kinds of segments in well w/o losing continuty . With Cour 2 feels more like Jason Bourne / Ton Clancy type of material

Summaries ( may not be in order. )

1 A short but good back story about Izumi Shimomura

I dont get the circumstances either she tried to kill herself or was attacked by her stepfather who wants to make money from turning her in as an AJIN

She wakes up in the hospital with Tosaki explaing what happened . She left after the fight between her parents ans apparently OD . She says she hates her parents who were killed but comes to find out her mother was defending her not to be turned ans stabbed her step father who then stabbed her mother.

But Tosaki makes a deal with Izumi ( her last name from her biological father / first from her mother ) to be his protection from other Ajins

2 Almedia tortures Tosaki with a stun gun but doent talk about Ogura . Them Meyers injects him with drugs that are used on Ajins that bring you to the brink of dying but stops short . Still tosaki wont talk instead saying they should worry about Sato.

3 Izumi recovers and gets back to the hidden MLHW site where is making final plans for Sato . Izumi comes in ans at first Kei gives orders to move everything but finally Izumi forcs Kei to mount a rescue for Tosaki as really they do need him to capture Sato. Kei says well they get a real practice in before going after Sato. Ogura in a twist ofers up where the US DOD has a safe house as Ogura is more interested in Sato than sides right now.

4 The Raid goes good at first except for Nakano who leaves his safety on. There are down to 2 rooms Kei / Izumi raid the next tp last but too late as the last room had Douglas / Meyers and Tosaki who escape > Izumi pursues only to spin out but Kei had his IBM attach a homiing device and it appears they are heading to the US Embassy . The Rais was much like a Bourne movie and the chase!

Izumi's backstory





Extreme Torture on Tosaki ( ironic he is getting a taste of his own medicine { Ajin drugs } literally )



Time is running out for Tosaki

Yea Nakano could be useful with his AJIN power / but he he talks too much / makes a lot of objections ( esprcially to KEI )/ I get he dislikes SATO but he needs some refinement yet

Later when KEI said it was a real practice for Sato ( to rescue Tosaki ) he left his safety on / then was annoying the chase !

She was in High School / I Dont get Psycho Pass at all yea it's a sci-fi / crime / horror anime of the same genre ( like others ) but I see little connection ?

Yes the backstory is harsh like AJIN is.

THE BACKGROUND


History

Izumi's former name was Yōko Tainaka and she lived with her mother, Sawako Tainaka, and step-father, Satoshi Tainaka. Her family was poor, a major factor was that her step-father would borrow or take Yōko or her mother's money and spend it on drinking or girls. While in high school, she was in a relationship with Kuzuki. She eventually found out that Kuzuki cheated on her with another girl as she overheard them talking about her while they're alone. After hearing this, Yōko goes to her home's bathroom to commit suicide by slitting her right wrist with a scissor while her stepfather is in the house. Her drunk stepfather sees her in the bathroom and attempted to rape her.

Yōko stabs him with the scissors while he slams her head into the side of the sink, killing her. While this happened, her mother returns home to see Yōko dead, then she begins to ooze out IBM and comes back to life after being dead, alerting her family that she's an Ajin. Her step-father calls the government trying to sell Yōko to them, but her mother wholeheartedly disagrees causing a fight between them in which they both die from stabbing each other. Yōko had left the house before the fight between her parents started, leaving her unaware that they both died in the incident until Tosaki made her aware of it. She eventually wandered in the street and it's implied that she became a prostitute to survive in the streets. It is during this period that her Black Ghost manifested and she became aware of it.

She eventually collapses from a sexually transmitted disease and is visited in the hospital about 2 weeks before the Shinya Nakamura incident by Yū Tosaki as Tosaki had a gut feeling that she might be an Ajin due to the earlier call to the police by her stepfather about her being an Ajin. Tosaki talked to her and played the phone call recording her mother and step-father's fight in which both of her parents killed each other. Upon learning the true events of what happened, she asks why he'd play that it's too late already. Tosaki replied that he's just correcting her view of her parents and that her mom did in fact loved her, to which she seemed nonchalant. Just as Tosaki is about to leave the room as he deemed that she's actually not an Ajin, she succumbed to her disease but is brought back to life, shocking Tosaki who was present in the room and confirming his suspicion. Afterwards she gets a special contract with Tosaki in the condition that "Yōko Tainaka" is dead and she will live on a new name while she becomes his escort. She decides her new name to be Izumi Shimomura, taken from her mother's maiden name and her birth father's last name.

That mole is not even in the manga. It's not canon!
