"Ajin: Demi-Human" Manga Gets Anime Film Trilogy

Gamon Sakurai's action-packed series to be animated

Gamon Sakurai's Ajin: Demi-Human manga, which is published in North America by Vertical, is animated enough on the page, but its action will be making its way to the big screen next. The series runs in Kodansha's good! Afternoon magazine, and the cover of the July issue is announcing an adaptation in the form of three anime films.

 

 

If you haven't had a chance to check out Ajin yet, it's highly recommended. The first volume was written by Tsuina Miura, and illustrated by Sakurai, but Sakurai is solely credited after that. His art is rad and the way he illustrates action is top notch. 

 

Here's the synopsis from Crunchyroll's page: 

Seventeen years ago, an utterly immortal human was discovered on an African battlefield. Since then, more of these new and unknown life forms began to appear among mankind. These undying beings start to be known as "demi-humans." One day, just before summer break, a Japanese boy leaving his high school is involved in a traffic accident that kills him on the spot. Then, he comes back to life. A huge bounty is placed on his capture. Now the boy's attempt to evade all of mankind begins.
