  • Always a good rewatch
    This is the third time I have revisited this anime. End up binge watching until the end every time. No doubt this is in top 10 greatest of all time. I am very picky and like to beatdown flaws that I see even if it is sci fi genre. This was so well done. Really makes you feel like its all happening. Great original story. I feel refreshed in my anime watching spirit.

  • The best emotional rollercoaster I have ever had the pleasure of riding.
    This show has got to be one of the best I have seen. I don't have much to say. If you are looking for an emotional rollercoaster, you've come to the right show. If you're looking for a good show then you've come to the right show. Can't recommend enough.

  • Fantastic 10/10 would recomend
    If you haven't watched this its one of the best psychological horror/thriller shows out there. complete with horrifying imagery this show will make you question humanity and its values. great art style, great intro theme, fear instilling designs, what more could you want?

  • Ok, this was actually pretty cool!
    With this one as well, at first I was a little skeptical if I'd like this or not. But I decided to keep watching this, and I ended up liking it a lot. Well there were few moments what I personally didn't really like, but those are just my personal opinions. So in the end I can say with certainty that this is freaking cool anime.

  • Unique, but major flaws
    Great series that really sucks you into the plot. It's one that hasn't been done before and tackles some deep concepts such as the value of all life, the hypocrisy of humans, the environment, etc. Really thought provoking stuff.

    However, there are times in this series that seem ... "forced" is the only word that I can use. Certain events and character decisions are made just to move the plot in ...

  • Great interactions between the protagonist and his ''friend''
    I've read the manga a long time ago and was pretty happy to find out that they've adapted it to animation, as it is one of my favorite stories.
    First, I really like the art style and the soundtrack I felt was pretty good and appropriate and translated very well the tone and action from the manga. Studio Madhouse deserves praise for it.

    This show is tagged ''seinen'' which means it has a more ...

  • Great Thriller, You'll Watch it Again and Again
    The second this show starts, you are immersed in the web of parasytes who are a lot closer than you'd think.

    What I loved about this show is the story and the slow transition of events unfolding, completely changing this one boy's life.

    If you like an exciting, action-packed, humorous, and horror-filled anime, well, this is definitely the show for you.

    Great adaptation of The Wacky Adventures of Dong Arm Boy!
    See kids, THIS is how you take a series of silent, static images and translate them into a TV show. It's not perfect, but it faithfully nails the mood and story of the original while translating it into a new medium, which is remarkably rare to see.

    I'm not going to gush over it, or explain in detail how every scene manages to avoid a lot of cross-media-translational traps and cliches, but I ...
