    Storytelling at it's finest
    An anime as well planned out and brilliantly written such as this one is a rare thing to come across. I'm happy to say that the mere existence of this anime restores much of the dying hope I have for the industry. I won't say much in this review, but I will give a specific example in the show that proves the story for this anime was written by someone who actually knows how to write a good story. ...

    5 Star even on first impression
    This first episode is the kind that will get you hooked right away. I would say give it a try. As you can see from other reviews there has to be some truth to this. The only downside people seem to have with it is the small differences from the manga. I on the other-hand think Madhouse did a great job there. The manga character designs were a bit bland and didn't stand out in the manga and some ...

    More Than You Think, It Does Good
    I am not going to say anything beyond that this anime is deep in hopes that you would learn the philosophy and ideologies that stand behind the cover you see. From that, you may appreciate it more so. It is more than just "aliens" invading-- watch it.

    Great story with even better execution
    It's very hard to give this series justice with a short review and without spoiling anything crucial, but I'll simply state that it is one of the best I've ever seen, very intriguing, greatly paced and emotionally engaging without cheap tricks and overly done cliches.

    It mixes sci-fi, horror and some emotional drama pretty much perfectly, making what could otherwise be a simple excuse for some ...

    Excellent Characters, and Good Fight Scenes
    .

    I am going to keep this review short and tight.


    The villains are very interesting "people" and the main characters all behave rationally, never forcing you to suspend your disbelief in order to follow the plotline (which is a problem that is endemic in anime, I've noticed). This endeared me to the show very ...

    A crazy roller-coaster ride from start to finish!
    Imagine an anime adaptation of "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" with a bit John Carpenter's "The Thing" for good measure, and you get Parasyte, one of the most heart pounding and suspenseful series I have ever seen!

    Studio MADHOUSE brings Hitoshi Iwaaki's classic seinen manga from the late 80s and adapts it to a modern setting to tell a grisly horror tale about parasitic and cannabalistic ...
