Parasyte episode 12
Parasyte comes first, of course. I did some rescheduling in order to make sure that Parasyte gets posted today instead of tomorrow or the day after tomorrow. I had to wait two weeks for this episode so it’s definitely coming first.
It is quite amusing to see how Migi and Shinichi interact with other nowadays. Shinichi has become a completely different person and is starting to think more logically about everything, which allows him to communicate with Migi on a level where the two actually see eye to eye from time to time, which is something that never happened before. It is really, really amusing to watch. One can actually see Shinichi become more and more like a parasite. He keeps his loved ones on a leash so that they don’t get caught in the crossfire and he is no longer worried about engaging his enemies. Well, maybe a little.
You could actually see Shinichi do his best to ensure that that stalker of his stays away from him. She simply refused to listen and had to pay the ultimate price when she thought that she sensed Shinichi. What she actually sensed was a hostile parasite that ended up killing her, leaving Shinichi with a sense of guilt. That guy did his best. Not his problem.
Still, you can see that Shinichi is still fighting his demons. He is calm and his emotions are under lock and key. He is aware of that and sees everyone around him as a possible weakness. I do not understand why he feels to need to protect every single human being from these parasites. That just gives him a huge weakness that the parasites are bound to exploit sooner or later, especially since they are building their own community.
