  • Wicked imagination and ideas.
    Supercool ideas. The plot can sometimes has an odd tempo because there isn't a constant antagonist. The show also tries to be thoughtprovoking but falls short in my opinion.
    The lovetriangle-romance bits are semi-bad and took too much space away from the good bits. The two minds in one body and overall character development could have used the time better.

    Still, pretty awesome

  • 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 ...

    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!

    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.
