Parasyte episodes 15 & 16
Yeah, I kind of knew that it would turn out this way. It didn’t go exactly as I had imagined, which is why I’m still as excited as ever, but I was spot-on in general. It’s just a damn shame that the pace has dropped a little bit.
So that private investigator finally saw what happened when one becomes affiliated with those parasites. His entire family was slaughtered like lambs and now they are after him to finish the job. He should’ve listened to Shinichi. That way he could’ve prevented this from happening by fleeing the city or something. But no… He knew best…
What surprised me a little is that that female parasite has become a target as well. Her obsession for Shinichi’s change and humanity in general has kind of set off the alarm amongst her kind, and so they are now targeting her because they think she’s become a threat. Now that is a pretty interesting twist that I did not see coming!
Of course, the spotlight goes to Shinichi and Migi once again. They are up against a freak of nature. Parasites in general are pretty freaky, but it gets worse when those two are up against five parasites that decided to take over the same body. Arms, legs and the head… All completely parasitic. All Shinichi could do was run and hide to give Migi some time to come up with a plan.
Still, Migi can have all the time in the world to plan all he wants, but even he is going to have a hard time when facing five parasites at once, especially when that old guy took over and united all of them. He morphed those legs so that he could actually catch Shinichi. Shinichi can’t even run away from that guy anymore, no matter how fast he’s become. It should be pretty interesting to see how they will deal with that monster.
