Another great episode. So what if there wasn’t a lot of action? It continued something of much more value. You can’t love a show where there’s fighting during every single episode. You need to mix things up a little bit.
This episode was perfect for that. We basically got a little history lesson about the old man and how he used to live his life. He was all alone and only cared for his own survival. He killed and killed until he came across a young woman whom ended up stealing his heart. They lived together and did a lot of things together, including making a child together, which led to them being targeted for doing this impossible. A child from both a Ghoul and a human was supposedly impossible, yet they did it and the woman got killed for it and the child now missing.
It was a very interesting story and the old man lived a very interesting live. It’s too bad that they didn’t actually show us how he became a Ghoul, but that’s alright. It was quite interesting to see how he lived and why he changed to become the man he is today. It’s no wonder that other Ghouls choose to follow him out of their own free wills.
Nevertheless, he may have lived the last part of his life as peacefully as he possibly could considering the circumstances, but he and his friends are still Ghouls, which has caught the attention of the local authorities. The next episode should prove to be quite interesting as both the old man and his friends will have to defend themselves against many, many Ghoul-killing soldiers.Read More
Now this was a very eventful episode. A lot of death and destruction that you don’t often see in anime. It’s usually censored in order to protect the viewers, but not with Parasyte. That’s probably what I liked most about this show.
So humankind decided to fight against this parasitic threat that has been terrorizing the country for months now. It was quite shocking to see how those armed forces were willing to allow a few human sacrifices if it meant killing those parasites. They usually avoid that in anime or at least censor it to prevent viewers from complaining.
The real question is how they plan on killing the one human body that houses five or six parasites. You can shoot him and he won’t die, you can stab him and he won’t die and you can probably throw a grenade or two at him and he’ll still find a way to survive. How are those soldiers supposed to kill something like that when Shinichi and Migi couldn’t do anything but run from him?
I also noticed that those soldiers aren’t really familiar with those parasites. They only know so much. I mean, they successfully escorted a bunch of people out and identified a parasite. They immediately shot and killed it, which was fine, but they thought that they could continue with that strategy and that all would be fine. It is troubling because they already seemed to know that those parasites can detect one another, so why didn’t they assume that they would become suspicious when one of them suddenly disappeared? They must’ve known that the other parasites would notice and that they would do anything to survive.Read More
Incredible plot twist! We all knew that this was going to happen sooner or later, but it’s actually quite interesting that it happened now. Slaine is about to marry an imposter princess in order to obtain more power and authority. I wonder what’s going to happen.
So we all know about that little princess and her unfortunate predicament. She has been locked up in that tube for god only knows how long and she finally opened her eyes again after her sister nearly killed her last week. Yes, this is good news in general, but this could turn out to be pretty bad for Slaine. After all, he rescued her from earth and brought her to that facility in order to try and save her life, which he seems to have done quite well. Now he has to make sure she stays quiet by making sure she doesn’t find out about what’s going on right now.
Will Slaine call off that wedding now that his beloved princess has awakened? Doubt it. He cares for that princess quite a lot. He would do anything to ensure her safety. Gaining more and more power by uniting all the people from Vers and gaining control of them would pretty much give him enough power to take the fight back to earth once more.
Slaine simply finds himself in a tough spot. He has to juggle two princess whilst taking control of an entire space army. To top that all off; he has Inaho to worry about. Inaho has been the only one so far that has been able to keep up with him. I am really curious to see how he will deal with all of that without losing face.Read More
This story is going in an entirely different direction now. We were led to believe one thing, but now they are bringing in so many more possibilities that you start to question the original story. Is that creature really interested in destroying the earth?
What the principle says made quite a bit of sense. The worst part is that I cannot disagree with his methods. He is willing to ‘sacrifice’ a few dozen students by putting them in class E, thereby motivating students from all other classes to do their best to stay out of class E. This may seem a little unfair to some, but it’s the responsibility of those very students to make sure that they don’t end up in that class. That’s why I cannot disagree with that method. The only thing that I disagree with is that he ended up changing some of the questions on their test to ensure that class E doesn’t do better some of the other classes.
Anyway, I really don’t think that Koro-sensei is really interested in destroying the earth. He must have a reason to do what he does. He is putting so much effort in teaching those children that there has to be something to it. If he really wanted die-hard assassins then he would’ve just taught them to kill. He wouldn’t have bothered with math and whatnot.
I wouldn’t be surprised if Koro-sensei was actually working to ensure that the opposite happens. Next week or perhaps the week after that we’ll probably find out that the earth is in danger somehow and that Koro-sensei is helping to prevent it from going under. That’s probably what’s happening right now. Teaching children all sorts of things and blowing up the earth after that doesn’t make any sense.Read More
There are so many things wrong with this episode. I also have no idea whether there was any progress or not. There may have been some, but for the life of me I wouldn’t know what it was. And my eyes never left the screen.
Remember how Ken went completely berserk during his last fight? He lost another part of him that made him human and gave in to the ghoul within. It could be because he wasn’t paying attention, it could be because he wasn’t in control of his rage or it really could be because he’s been cannibalizing his fellow ghoul. Either way, he killed and ate an officer and was nearly killed himself by that die-hard detective. He almost lost control even when he was alone in that building. So now I wonder what made him return to that café.
It may have been information or may have been a request for help. Either way, I was severely distracted by that insane, Ken-obsessed ghoul. Did you see that guy? He carries around a handkerchief with some of Ken’s blood on it so he can sniff it and get high whenever he wants to. You really don’t want a guy like that around you.
Putting that psycho aside, I don’t think Ken is going back anytime soon. He made it very clear that he doesn’t want to involve Touka or any of the Anteiku employee’s and/or residents. He is a man on a mission. It won’t be long now before his true objective is revealed. Things don’t make a whole lot of sense right now.Read More
