    Finally it has become an anime!!!
    Read the original manga series (Kiseijuu) by Iwaaki Hitoshi (1990's !!!!)
    And I will have to say that Parasyte -the maxim- will be action packed and full of suspense! ^^ (Should be good fellow Crunchyrollers \(^o^)/

    If the series follows the manga then expect to follow the protagonist in a journey full of carnage, action, innder debates of morals and ethics and horror. ...

    Why this anime is so awesome
    From starting of the (1st) episode, I have been very attached to this anime for many reasons. Animation, Story line, Characters, Personality & Texture all of it is perfect in this anime.

    It would be great if the human that has obtained an alien hand that knows combat become's more alike and stronger.

    Some may dislike this anime, Some may love it, I love it i can guarantee that and ...

    Classic, short, must watch
    I feel like any amount of retelling of the story would be a spoiler since it is such a short series and every aspect is good.
    At first it might strike you as a 'monster fighting monster and cool battle scenes' anime, and while it is that to some degree, it is so much more. This is ultimately an anime about what it means to be human.
    This is so deep, so thrilling and filled with every possible ...

    Don't put it off, watch this now.
    This is one of the best animes I've watched in a long time. Years even. I don't know why it took so long for me to finally watch it; so I implore you. Don't make the same mistake I did, this is more than worth the time. Watch it, there's nothing I can say that will express how awesome this whole thing was.

    The best anime I have ever seen
    Truly the best anime I have ever seen, the characters are amazing and you end up feeling for everyone without even realizing is. The anime has a great message behind and it gets the message across to you in a way I could have never imagined. Amazing all the way through and the ending is so good it really ends with you not wanting more but feeling happy to have gone through it all.

    Excellent from start to finish
    If you like real stakes, Parasyte is one of the only anime I have seen that really delivers start to finish.

    If you finished this and are looking for something new-
    -Monster is 80 episodes of excellence even if it starts a bit weird, one of the few anime better than the manga.

    *damn these arbitrary character limits

    So deep,terrifying but emotional
    I binged watched this series and just finished. Overall it took me about a week. Because I was hooked.Totally. In the very first minutes this show had me shocked and intrigued. I must admit that I was having thoughts about dropping it, however after watching episode 1 those thoughts quickly vanished. The story is about "Parasites" that suddenly show up and start killing humans; that is the basic ...
