Parasyte episode 21
Okay, this was an expectable outcome but I do not at all like how things went down. It has a strange twist that made this episode and the last few episodes seem quite odd. I wonder why they did it like this to be honest.
I was really looking forward to seeing this episode. That super parasite was absolutely unstoppable. Wave after wave of soldiers came in and only ended up getting killed without even doing any real damage. You can shoot him with machine guns, shotguns or even grenade launchers. It won’t do you any good because he’ll either dodge it all or he’ll use a shield to reflect the bullets. You can’t hope to beat something like that with standard weaponry. They said something about napalm strikes and whatnot, but I doubt that something like that would be enough to kill him. He’d just run like hell or somehow shield himself from it.
What bothered me is that these episodes were all about humanity striking back. About humanity taking control over this parasitic threat. Then I am shown a scene where Shinichi suddenly wakes up in his bed and the viewer, me, are left to wonder if the past few episodes actually happened or if it was all a dream that Shinichi had.
So what if Shinichi, thanks to that girl, finally became a man after all this time? I am more interesting in knowing how he’s going to deal with that monster. He cannot fight it head and with tactics he’d probably only get one chance to do some damage, and even that probably wouldn’t be enough to finish him off. I really, really want to know!
