Hmm, I heard about this too, but I wasn’t sure if I could believe it. I also heard about part of Migi staying within Shinichi’s body after getting stabbed in the hart, and I immediately believed it when I saw him run, jump and hear things from afar last week.
So Shinichi really did meet another person like him. I could not believe it when I was first told about it (please stop sharing spoilers), but yeah, he met a chubby dude whose chin has been invaded by a parasite. It is strange that I prefer that guy’s parasite over him, but there you have it. A chubby dude that tried to take his own life (and would have succeeded if he wasn’t such a coward) ended up with a parasite that took control of his chin. That just shines a whole new light on having one take over your right arm. I’d rather prefer that than having a parasite taking over (part of) my face.
So we met this guy and we got to see how Shinichi dealt with the parasite that killed his mother and then took control of her body. He was able to fight her off without even breaking a sweat. I don’t think he actually needed Migi. He could’ve just fought her using a katana or something. That is why I don’t like the fact that she was killed by that new guy. I really think that Shinichi should’ve been the one to finish her off.
Anyway, Shinichi returns home with a lot more experience, a superhuman body and a whole new look. He got rid of his glasses and changed his hairstyle. We are basically looking at a whole new Shinichi because of what happened during these past couple of weeks, and I must say that I like what I’m seeing.Read More
Wooh! Another great episode! Why did it take so long for this to get an anime adaption when the manga finished in 2007? This is a huge find! Parasyte has blown away all of my expectations and it has only been six weeks…
So Shinichi got pierced through the heart by the parasite that killed his mother and then took control of her body. He realized that his weakness, his hesitation could prove fatal. He would’ve died if it weren’t for Migi, whom relocated to where his heart used to be in order to make sure he survives. If Shinichi were to die then so would Migi, unless he attempted to relocate to another human being like the parasite that killed Shinichi’s mom. I knew that Shinichi would survive this ordeal, but no way could I have guessed that thirty percent of Migi’s cells would remain within Shinichi’s body, giving him superhuman abilities.
I have high hopes now. Now more than ever. Shinichi realized first-hand that those parasites have no mercy. They do not have the emotions necessary. This should’ve been the push he needed to become a real man. Stop being scared and stop doubting yourself and just let it all go. That’s what he needs right now.
There, I said it. He needs to grow a pair of balls, especially since his father is still in danger. That parasite plans to get rid of him. No witnesses. Shinichi knows this and plans to kill the parasite that killed and took control of his mother’s body. I like his new-found motivation to fight! I can only hope that he finds her soon.Read More
My god… This episode was completely insane. The author(s) behind Parasyte really thinks of messed up stuff. Calling this episode dark would be an understatement. This shocking episode is definitely one to be remembered.
The episode starts out quite ‘normally’. We have a man driving a car and a women next to him whose body has been taken over by a parasite. The man does not know this and ends up crashing the car because he is focussed on her strange behaviour. The woman, whose body now belongs to a parasite, is fatally wounded and the parasite within her needs a new host or it will die.
This episode proved once and for all that relocation is definitely possible. The parasite transferred from that woman’s body to that man, whom was in a much better shape after the crash. Yes, they were not compatible. It seems the parasite has become accustomed to a female body and the male body simply rejected it. It needed a woman’s body that won’t reject it.
Did I see this coming? Did I know that Shinichi’s mother would get killed by that parasite so that it may take over her body? Of course not. I could never think of something that messed up. I was going the other way. She and her husband were out of town; safe from those parasites. I guess I was completely wrong about that one. Shinichi’s mother is gone and his dad might not have survived either.
What will happen now? Easy. Shinichi is not going to kill his mother. Well, his mother is already dead, but he won’t attack her body either way. It’s all up to Migi now. Either she will get away because Migi couldn’t finish her off or because Shinichi wouldn’t allow it. It’s my guess that that parasite will escape because of Shinichi’s weakness and that his father turns out to be alive in the end. Oh, and Shinichi will survive, of course.Read More
A rather predictable episode I’m afraid. Still, Parasyte seems to be doing really well. There’s even going to be a live action movie of it soon. I’ve already seen the trailer and I must say that it looks kind lame. I’ll just stick to the anime adaption.
You know, this Protagonist, Shinichi, is really starting to piss me off. He keeps saying that he wants to eliminate all parasites and is always so eager to start a fight, but now a parasite brought the fight to him and he is on the brink of peeing his pants. He nearly panicked when that guy attacked. He has such a big mouth, claiming to be ready to fight one of those creatures at any time, but chickens out when it’s time to put his mouth where is money is. It’s only because he realized that Migi wants to survive and would block every one of those attacks that he finally walked up to that guy and stabbed him in the chest.
Same story with that woman; he was so eager to attack her when he found out about her existence. Now he’s pretty much cowering in fear because they’re not sure that they can beat her, especially since she’s carrying a human child. Shinichi doesn’t want to sacrifice that child, even though that woman/thing only plans to experiment on it and eat after she’s done.
I’m pretty sure that something’s about to go down right now. Shinichi’s parents left to go on a trip together. They are no longer an issue. He can roam free without having to worry about those two finding out about his current predicament and getting involved. Now would be a good time to go after that woman.Read More
Another eventful Parasyte episode. I must say that this one really got me thinking about what to expect from Parasyte. Quite frankly, I am not sure that I like what I’m seeing here. This episode was quite worrying if you stop to think about it.
So a couple of parasites joined the big picture. I thought that Shinichi, having gained a little bit of power through that parasitic friend of his, would’ve become a parasite hunter and exterminated all of them. I kept in mind the fact that Migi merely wants to survive and prefers to avoid any and all conflict with other parasites if he can. This puts Shinichi, who wants to kill all human-eating parasites, in a very weird place, especially now that he has to deal with two of them, one of which may be more intelligent and experience than him and Migi.
Okay, so let’s talk about this “A” guy. He is not on that woman’s level yet, but he poses an immediate threat now that he’s standing face to face with Shinichi. Will he win though? Probably not. I’d be amazed if Shinichi and Migi ended up victorious again without even a scratch on ‘em. I’m fine with them continuing their winning streak, but keep it a little bit more realistic (and I am using that term loosely right now).
And finally, that woman… She is actually Shinichi’s math teacher and knows whom he cherishes the most. She actually has a hostage that she could harm whenever she pleases, basically ensuring Shinichi’s full cooperation. She planned it all out and she is probably more experienced than Migi, making her a very big threat. This is going to get rough…Read More
