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
Watching Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso is really scary. My most favourite character on the show may or may not die and other characters are making fun all over the place. It’s a bit hard to watch at times, I won’t lie about that one.
Kousei played a nice piece together with Nagi. It surprised me to see him in control. Not only was he in control of his music, but he also decided to test Nagi during the performance by changing the pace a little. Did she falter? Absolutely not. She kept up and she stayed in control throughout the performance, for which she received a great applause.
It’s funny how much influence Kousei’s name has. People know him just by his name because of how he used to play. I wonder if he could use that kind of fame to his advantage. He could use it to get into top-class schools or find himself a top-class mentor that will help him become the world-class pianist that he is destined to be.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
Awesome Parasyte episode! I bet a lot of people have been waiting for this to happen. I would doubt that these creatures could continue their killing spree without anything ever happening to them. There are always consequences.
So Shinichi came out of it pretty well. That killer, whose ability to sense parasites is probably similar to the girl that got killed a few weeks ago, did not tell the police that Shinichi was part parasite. He either couldn’t tell because Migi was asleep or he could tell and chose not to say anything out of fear or curiosity. My money is on the latter. His response was not exactly innocent. He could definitely tell that there was something different about Shinichi. The fact that he thought that he saw something inhuman proves that. I doubt that this is the last we’ve seen of it.
Anyway, the bit where probably a lot of fans have been waiting for is humanity’s turn to take the fight to them. Yes. They may learn very quickly and they have all sorts of weapons that cut everything apart at high speed. Does that make them invincible? Of course not. Humanity has guns, bombs and all sorts of technology that they could use to turn the tables on those parasites.
Are those soldiers doing it properly? Maybe. Things seem to be going smoothly because they are escorting and scanning only seven people at a time. It’s a slow process, but it’s only a matter of time before the rest of those parasites get nervous and refuse to play along, especially that mayor and the one with the five parasites.Read More
