    Great First Few Episodes!
    Parasyte was one of the first horror manga I read. I didn't think I'd like it at first since horror wasn't really my 'thing,' but it grew on me and became one of my top-rated series. So I was ready to be disappointed by a mediocre anime adaptation.

    But guess what - so far it's been fantastic! While the character designs have been changed a bit, and the technology updated (the manga's 25 ...

    Our Lord and Savior, Shinichi
    *Taps microphone and clears throat*

    Hello. I would to talk about our Holy Badass, Shinichi Izumi. He's made of more steel than the Man of Steel himself. He kills a lot of things sometimes. He also saves his waifu on occasion. I mean, I dunno how to further explain this. Oh wait, I think I do.

    This anime is freaking insane.

    *Drops microphone and leaves*

    WOW, A MUST WATCH!!!
    From the moment Parasyte starts it hooks you in. It is witty, entertaining, and just down right awesome. The character development is paired great with the action/gore allowing it to pace itself well. Another fantastic thing about this show is the soundtrack, I found it to be really enjoyable. In simple terms if you like Gore, Action, and a good story then this is for you.

    In a league of it's own. Parasyte is a heavy hitter.
    This series is nearly flawless. By far one of the best of the late 2014 simulcats, and masterfully blends intense action and suspense with a deep character base. The MC feels very relatable in his circumstances, and the series will consistently keep you pleading for more. Great music, better animation and art style, and devoid of many of the typical character tropes that plague many of today's ...

    One of the best of 2014
    Finally after almost giving up hope on 2014, this one managed to shine.
    Plot , character and concept are engaging and compelling , each episode gives a edge of the seat experience.
    This isn't for the light hearted , it certainly has a more mature theme which probably explains it's lack of popularity as it isn't like the younger more colorful anime based for the childish audience. There is some ...

    16 years of waiting finally paying off.
    Back in 1997 the manga for this anime was released to North American readers in a magazine, similar to shonen jump, called Mixxzine by a company that would be later called Tokyo Pop. Other manga titles in that were far more popular/well known published in the same magazine were Sailor Moon and Magic Knights Rayearth. For 16 years I've been waiting to see parasyte released as an anime series and ...

    After two episodes, I'm hooked
    Actually, I was hooked after the opening 10 seconds of the show. GULP. This show is badass and is currently my favorite of the season. And thank god it's not censored to hell and back like Terraformars. So thanks for not treating us like children with this anime, Crunchyroll!

    This show is great with the laughs, too. The bathroom scene killed me. Literally killed me. Then I was reborn ...

    10/10 - A Must Watch!
    A heartwarming tale of ruthless murder, senseless violence, and the timeless love shared between a man and his right hand. There's an odd charm about watching a bumbling teenage protagonist suddenly sprout eyeballs on random locations over his body, or seeing a man's head suddenly morph into a dozen razor-sharp knives. Jokes aside, this show offers some poignant insights into the human condition ...

    Jaw-dropping, heart-racing.... well you get the gist
    I came to this anime without any expectations- all I knew is that I wanted to see something action packed and filled with gore. Ever since season 1 of Tokyo Ghoul was over, I was hungry for more bloody body ripping action, so here I am. At first, it seemed like a very weird opening but a couple of episodes in I'm already begging for more. The true fun doesn't reach until the middle of the season, ...

    Parasyte is love, Parasyte is life
    I've watched quite a few anime, I have nice taste, and I can easily say this is my favorite anime of all time. I really recommend. It is very symbolic, and will make you think to figure out exactly what this show truly means. It truly is a masterpiece,
