I am really loving how only two weeks ago (if I am not mistaken) we got two episodes without having to wait an extra week for another episode. They just keep coming out and I say let them. The more Parasyte episodes the better.
So Shinichi has evolved physically and mentally. We all know this. The question that everyone keeps asking themselves is how much he’s changed. I still don’t know. He is no longer scared of his fellow human being, but he is still reluctant to go into battle and comes across as a weakling from time to time. What is up with that guy?
I also dislike how Shinichi lets himself get manipulated by others. The girl with the ability to sense parasites has been following him around and now she’s even dreaming about him. He is letting himself get manipulated by her. If this carries on he might endanger the relationship he has with Satomi-chan. What an idiot.
Anyway, the parasites are still on the move. They are attack (random?) targets nowadays. They do seem interested in living amongst human beings, but only on their terms. That is why they wish to control it all. How would you control a large amount of people? Politics of course! The parasites came to that conclusion from what I could tell and are now trying to infiltrate the political world by killing off candidates and taking over their identity. This puts a whole new spin on everything, seeing as the parasites have never tried to form any kind of society until now. They are gathering, scheming and they seem frightfully good at it. Good luck with that, Shinichi.Read More
Oh no! Who could’ve possible seen this coming? To think that a parasite would kill humans to keep its secret safe… That is a complete shock. All sarcasm aside; it really was a cool episode despite it being pretty predictable.
So Shinichi realized that he had to do something. That guy was going on a killing spree after some girl found out about his secret and covered him with acid when he tried to kill her. This left him in a very vulnerable state; he was not recovering and his senses were going wild. He basically killed every living create he would come across in order to survive. Everything was a potential enemy and could end up killing him in such a vulnerable state. That is why many people (and animals) had to die before Shinichi and Migi could get to him.
That’s the interesting thing about humans; there are plenty of sacrificial lambs. There always have been. It took Shinichi awhile to get ready, but he and his parasitic friend managed to kill that guy in the end. I must say that I was quite impressed by that arm and the idea to throw a rock at high speed to destroy that guy’s heart. I saw that scene three times before I continued with the rest.
Shinichi received yet another blow. His important friend almost got killed, he witnessed the deaths of his fellow students and he learned yet another valuable lessons. Time for him to stop panicking so much. He is a superhuman now. Just charge in, evade all the tentacles and kill those evil parasites one by one. No time to be hesitant.Read More
Whoop whoop! A double Parasyte episode? Does this mean there won’t be any next week? I sure hope not. If that was the case I would’ve rather saved episode nine for next week (if I could find it in myself to not watch that episode for a whole week when it’s within my reach).
I’ll do my best to summarize both episodes with this post. The first thing that comes to mind is how Shinichi has changed. I really like it. He is less of a coward and his way of thinking has changed too. This must be all that parasite DNA that’s currently flowing within him. He has become a lot more objective and he can actually be reasoned with now.
I also liked it when he held his own against all those bullies. His strength has skyrocketed without him becoming cocky. He is still very much passive. He attacks when someone else attacks in order to defend himself and the people around him. It took him a few weeks, but he has finally become a character worthy of the title protagonist.
It doesn’t end there though. A new enemy, as one could only expect, arrived on the orders of another parasite. It would seem as though they are forming their own society. This guy infiltrated Shinichi’s school in order to learn more about him. He claims his intentions are good but the way he grabbed that girl tells me otherwise.
Shinichi has a lot to do in the coming weeks. He has to keep that girl safe, seeing as she seems to have the ability to detect parasites, making her a target, and he has to keep an eye on the parasite that infiltrated his school. It is only a matter of time before he shows his true nature and forces Shinichi to kick his parasitic ass, especially if I am to believe the end of episode nine, which shows us that a fight is coming.Read More
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
