    At first I wasn't to sure of this anime but it quickly changed my mind only after a few minutes watching the first EP.
    There are some INTENSE/sad moments but watch it to the end and can't wait for more to come out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Refreshing and Interesting!
    This anime leaves me excited for next week's episode! Protagonist character development helps you get in the mind of Shinichi and follow along with his thought processes to figure out what's the next step he should take. This action/thriller is a great recommendation!

    One of the best animes I've ever watched.
    Didn't think it would be this good when my wife suggested watching it! After just the first episode, I was hooked! Character development is outstanding, plenty of unpredictable events, and story line is very unique! It's a nice balance of the serious type of anime with a dash of humor and plenty of action.

    A+ Five stars! Highly recommended!

    It's really good okay?!
    I remember I checked out the first episode, it was so good I couldn't wait for the second episode. So I found the manga and completed it by the time the second ep came out, and my am I impressed! It's sticking close to it's source material, and using the format for the best visual mayhem it can offer. It's brutal, gore and creepy. But fun, loving and amazing as well.

    Fresh new sci-fi horror. Very welcome, indeed.
    I like the blank slate Migi is right now. Allows for much change and growth of the character. Very promising storyline. I will look forward to each new episode. There is much dramatic conflict and tension in all characters. I recommend giving it a try.

    Surprised by the Adapatation
    Frankly I wasn't expecting an adaptation after so long, but disregarding a few tweaks on design and setting it's the same old gold as before. The manga itself is great, hell it's of the few that I've reread. The series is a mature one, so be forewarned. Beyond that it's great. I'll update after watching. I can't wait to see Migi!

    Tons of potential! Must watch
    I haven't seen such a captivating and original series since Death Note. Dubstep is a nice touch, too.
    I don't know why more series like this haven't come out, tired of all the kiddie style animes, even if they're an adult theme.
    Can't wait to see where they go with it.

    Possibly the best show this season?
    Overall for my first episode impressions I'd have to give this show a 5/5. There wasn't a single second throughout the episode where I thought It was boring. Not to mention the fact that It's totally uncensored. It's like watching Tokyo Ghoul uncensored. This is probably the only show that has made me want to read the Manga just for more content.

    Best Anime on crunchyroll
    I absolutely loved this anime. It was gripping, with a slice of life all the way through. The main character never felt over powered, and he was always in predicaments that made him have to figure out a way to survive. Great anime all the way through!

    If you want existential horror and gore, you've come to the right place
    Packed with super gory action, from start to finish. Even though it is mostly action, there are some touching moments that pull on the heartstrings.

    It was a very realistic and reasonable reaction to what would happen if aliens came to earth.

    Also handles topics such as "what makes a human, human? ", "What is love, and how does it affect the way that we and act?", " humans are destroying ...
