Parasyte (寄生獣/Kiseiju) : The old Manga revived as Anime!

Parasyte Poster

Hello! I am Migi….. ((((;゚Д゚))) ( °▽°)=◯)`ν°)・;’.、Sorry, Migi on my hand was speaking….. I am Mishi! How are you doing, everybody? Today, what I am going to introduce you guys is Parasyte (寄生獣/Kiseiju). This Manga started from 1988 so this anime has fixed many things for the present time. For example, the internet, and smart phones like that. They modified that way so it is easier to watch this anime for us! It is not a scary anime but there are many bloody on this anime! (-o-\) λλλλλ,,,,, I wonder how this anime is like! Let’s go to see the story first! C= C= C=C= C= C=(ノ´∇)ノ




Out of the blue, unidentified creatures(parasites) come from the sky and intrude into the human’s body. They dominate the human, take control of them and prey on other humans. Once the human gets controlled by them, they will have a special ability which is no longer a human being. They can change their look, incredible exercise capacity and so on. These parasites keep on invading into a human’s body and giving them a learning ability to learn words and have knowledge.

While this is happening the human’s don’t notice what is going on, the main character, Shinichi who is a normal average high school student is attacked by one of the parasites. Fortunately, he dodged the parasite from taking control of his brain but the parasite in his right arm begins to infest. Since that, he starts a new life with this parasite.  ((゚゚дд゚゚ )) Shinichi names this parasite Migi because this parasite lives in his right arm. Migi means right in Japanese. As I said this earlier, they have an excellent learning ability so they can speak! Do you want one of them?? 《(;´Д`)》

At the same time, people who are controlled by these parasites begin to kill each other everywhere in the world but nobody can get any clue why these cases are happening. What will happen to Shinichi? Will he hide this forever? Can he deal with what is going on in this world? Can he have someone who can understand him? He will get involved in this big mysterious thing that not many people know…..

My Review


Parasyte Chart Recommendations

This anime comes from Manga and they modified many things to present day’s way. Some people who are fans of Parasyte from Manga complain that characters are not like original ones but I think the way of this anime doesn’t bother me at all. Because parasyte characters are not that interesting as far as the illustrations are from first even in the manga but that is just my personal opinion. What is good about this anime is the story! I mean the main character’s story. He got unfortunate luck to be attacked by Migi and his life turns 180 degrees. There are many scenes that he struggles to face the reality. He is still a high school kid and immature but through this anime, you can get to watch how the young boy gets tough and become mature little by little.

This anime contains too much emotion as far as how it would happen in real life. I am not talking about the parasites being in this world or something. I’m talking about how we will lose somebody who we don’t want to lose or when we are not in the good mood, we feel like forget it. But our life takes patience, discipline, and challenge to try to overcome something we have to go over. Even though we try something so many times sometimes,  we can’t make it. You give up or not that is up to you but this main character won’t give up. Of course, he is danced around by his emotions and gets lost the way to go but he always straightens himself up and comes back to try to not run away, even though he loses many people and many things in the short time.

If you watch this anime like I did, you will be taught that this is a life by this anime. I think you can get strong after finish watching it! It is just anime but if you try to squeeze something out of it, you might be able to feel something at the end! This anime contains many bloody scenes so if you are not good at it, I won’t recommend this anime but it is the one of good anime that you need to know. (If you want to be anime Otaku, especially! lol)
