    Really good anime...however
    Overall this anime is really good. Good characters, interesting storyline, brilliant animation. However the one thing that was not good with this anime is the ending, it could have been much much better. It almost made no sense to me and made me feel like this anime was unfinished or there could have been a couple of more episodes actually explaining what happened after everything was over e.g. ...

  • A good what if scenario.
    I enjoyed this anime so much that id happily watch it again and again.
    The scenario the main character goes through really challenges ones ideas of ethics and good at prompting self reflection.
    I felt no one was wrong, and im still inclined to believe that the Parasites have a place.
    I just wish i knew where they came from,

    not really interesting! requires a certain taste!
    this anime failed to keep me entertained... story was alight and unique it has potential but characters keep it bland and fails to keep you attached to the characters very boring and bland personalities. this anime has the potential and tbh i actually see this anime getting popular in the near future but its not for everyone. it has a unique and non cliché story. over all solid 4/5 still a ...

  • Good but disappointing at times
    This is an amazing show and a must watch but if you have read the manga like i have you will feel a bit disappointed they left some of the main moments out which made the manga so good, and yes i know that you don't want the manga and the anime to be identical but they shouldn't have ended it so softly and went for the all out carnage like the manga to just give the show that extra push to ...

  • Parasyte is excellent!
    Such an enjoyable watch that I didn't want to END! The best thing parasyte captures is the growth in the relationship between shinichi and migi, they start as unknowns to each other then throughout the season they come to depend on eachother. With a good story premise and good pacing, definitely worth watching.

  • Surprisingly Human and uncharacteristically well-done!
    I had heard a lot of people talking about this one... based off the title, I was thinking this would be more along the lines of Elfin Lied (gore), but it really isn't that bad. Strong story line and well-developed characters make this a very good series that ties up nicely at the end. 24 episodes, so it isn't a lengthy series, but very much worth the time to watch.

  • Amazing, and probably very accurate.
    A few years ago i stumbled across a manga titled Parasyte and i read it at the time and it was filled with horror and great action and general things i love seeing. I told myself at the time that there was no way this would ever get animated, 6-7 years later however it did get animated and it was produced by the same company that did Hunter x Hunter 2011 so it ended up being not just a great ...

  • Brilliant Gory Anime
    This anime falls under the genre: sci-fi and the subgenre: body horror because the themes are about snake/insect-like parasites infecting humans to take control of their brain in order to destroy humanity. There is also gore due to the violent scenes where humans and monstrous aliens are slaughtered with blade-like projections on tentacles. This anime is better than Deadman Wonderland because it ...

  • This show does everything it sets out to do
    Parasyte has appropriately horrifying visuals to be used as the story dictates and detailed animation that does not use any gimmicks to make the action more exciting, instead the action is given weight by the characters as well as consequences. The show spans two genres of horror, both gore and existential but more the former than latter, the existential horror arising subtly.
