    Great First Few Episodes!
    Parasyte was one of the first horror manga I read. I didn't think I'd like it at first since horror wasn't really my 'thing,' but it grew on me and became one of my top-rated series. So I was ready to be disappointed by a mediocre anime adaptation.

    But guess what - so far it's been fantastic! While the character designs have been changed a bit, and the technology updated (the manga's 25 ...

    Parasyte -The Maxim-
    Synopsis: The story of Kiseijuu or, in English, Parasyte is just about a parasite that attempts to take control of a young man named Shinichi's brain. However Shinichi notices that the parasite is there, unknowing of its nature or exactly what it is, and manages to stop the parasite from taking control over him, instead the parasite is only left with control of his right arm. Once the ...

  • AWESOME! great start to a great series!
    I own the entire manga series and i could not wait for this! and so far it has not disappointed! However i was not expecting Shin to look the way he does, with the glasses and everything. But its by no means bad. And i like how they modernized all of the technology from the manga. some creative liberty gives this show a great new feel to someone who has already been exposed to the story.

    great story guaranteed
    I loved the manga, like there are few stories I enjoyed more, and honestly this is true to it so I don't see how it can go wrong there. Really if the don't deviate or cut out too much this is going to be incredible character development and general analysis of humanity.

    I like the animation for the most part, not wild about it but that is personal preference. However, they do cut on quality for ...

    great first episode !!
    I really enjoyed the first episode which is rare for me, I usually have to warm up to most shows, well I thought the japanese screamo in the intro was kinda lame BUT other then that!...lol.. Excited to see how this plays out, I was always aware of the manga but had never actually checked them out.

    Horror Anime with Dubstep?
    Yes, a very good one at that.
    The first review went very deep into the first episode, please go read that for more info.
    I'm giving it 4 out of 5 stars because my god, why did you put dubstep into it. That EDM is not even in style anymore and just sucks.
    Hope the music is better in the second episode!

    Manga will always be better but I'm still excited for this.
    So I just saw that they were making an anime of this. I love the manga and have not seen the first episode. But what I do not like is the character changes. From what I've seen. He isn't supposed to have glasses. The girl does not ware her hair like that. And frankly their fashion is supposed to be more out of date. This is to modern. I'd still watch it. I just pray it follows the manga. I've been ...

    This was a great first episode
    Having not read the manga I was really surprised and enjoyed this the first episode. It quickly shows you what kind of person our "hero" of the story is which I like. The opening gets you into and sets the mood of the series. Surprisingly it's not censored much if any which is something I've been looking for in a horror anime.

    Looking forward to more
    First of all, any Kamen Rider fans out there? Ankh right?!

    For reals though, the premise is really cool and he's probably the first main character whose partner of circumstance is actually going to get him laid. I'm invested in the main character and his situation. The art style is rather innovative not just the creature designs but even the way some of the everyday scenes are done rather ...
