  • Oj oj oj Parasyte the dunder maxad~
    Dis anime was kok nice. I wrecked it in just 2 days. But it felt as I just watched a couple of episodes and then out of nowhere it was DONE. And it has a very unique art style which from the beginning I was unfamiliar with but grew to like it alot. Schinchi and his right arm had such a crazy journey which I think you all should take a look at. You could call this show Spiderman but with parasites ...

  • One of the Greatest Science Fiction Stories Ever Told in Anime
    As the title says. I'm really not sure how much I can say without spoiling anything.
    The writing is gripping, the characters are interesting, the pacing is perfect, the gore is exactly appropriate and neither over-done and tacky or comically obscured or absent, it explores high concepts while addressing basic instincts and needs, and finally the main character's development is interesting, ...

  • Rewatching it right now!!!
    I watched this anime about 5 years ago and can easily say that it's one of the best animes on this platform. The story is something that feels very unique and you will get sucked in by epsiode 2. It's heavily underrated and you gotta give it a try.

    Plot: 9/10 - The plot is great you will laugh, cry and sit on the edge of your seat all at once.

    Pacing 10/10 - The show never get's dull and ...

  • BINGE WATCH IT! Totally worth it! Don't leave it hanging on your queue.
    I wish I had watched it long ago, it was sitting on my queue for the longest... I finished the last episode today. I started watching on saturday and finished it on sunday, even though I had to go to work, I just couldn't stop watching it.
    This anime is perfectly balanced, beginning middle and end, and you won't have to wait for the cliffhangers since the anime is complete. you'll be watching it ...

  • Shinichi is love, Migi is life
    All of a sudden, they arrived: parasitic aliens that descended upon Earth and quickly infiltrated humanity by burrowing into the brains of vulnerable targets. These insatiable beings acquire full control of their host and are able to morph into a variety of forms in order to feed on unsuspecting prey.

    Disturbing, Bloody and Funny the true odd couple.

    My two complaints are:
    1. They never ...

  • Came for the Horror Stayed for the philosophy
    To start off i had taken a bit of a break from watching anime for a while and chose this title to get back into it. It had been at least a few years since i had really watched anything new outside of stuff i already owned or re-watched online.

    With that said i found that the pacing for this show was really good. The characters are interesting and i liked the whole existential element to it. ...

  • Very weak female characters, great show otherwise
    I would have given this show more stars if, as a female viewer, I wasn't thoroughly disgusted with the female love interest. She was at best an annoyance, and exhibited zero character development with a shockingly limited dialogue. Other than that, the show was compelling, great shots, really tense and truly fun to watch.

  • Parasyte-the maxim- has action, drama, romance, gore and are all brilliant
    Just by the cover image you can can guess some weird stuff are going to happen. That's actually true. What you can't guess is how interesting it is to see the characters interact with each other (especially one whose only purpose is survival), how thrilling are the fights and the soundtrack and how everything becomes multiple times better by hearing the characters' thoughts (although typical for ...
