Synopsis

Where there is life, there is death... or is there? What would you do if you could never die? The possibilities are endless.

Seventeen years ago, the existence of a special species called Ajin was discovered in Africa. They are said to be immortal beings, with several supernatural abilities, that look just like any other human being. Are these Ajin just random phenomena of nature or were they purposely sent to Earth to destroy it?

Since their first discovery, several other Ajin appearances have been reported worldwide. For the majority of citizens though, these creatures are less reality and more of something you see every once in a while in a textbook or on the news. This is how it was for the young protagonist of the series, Kei. That was until a sudden turn of events changed his life forever...

Ajin is a supernatural anime full of complex ideas about life and death, as well as the dark side of human nature. What does it mean to truly be human?

Background

Ajin is scheduled to be streamed by the multinational provider Netflix worldwide after the current run ends.

( No Spoliers ) First of all , Reviews are based on one's preferences and own interests so what I am writing will never ever be 100% for all people simply because we are different .
Second thing , the main reason why many of anime lovers aren't watching Ajin is because of the art . We (I am included ) are used to the 2D techniques in anime so if I found a 3D one I will not watch it .BUT I have to say that AJIN is different . TOTALLY DIFFERENT .
I can't deny that I started to watch it mainly because I read more

"Don't judge a book by its cover": a metaphorical phrase that I'm sure many of us are familiar with, being one that has long transcended both generational and ethnic background to be used across the globe. A phrase that has taken on several reiterations depending on the time period and linguistics of the land, but still maintains the same direct message. It's simple, to the point and always relevant when entering the world of any storytelling medium. As much as many of us would like to think, that we could quickly discern the contents of a show simply off of the art cover read more

First: You will hate this anime because of the ART, but put up with it and after a few eps you won't even notice anymore, because the story will take your mind away from it.

It starts off just like any other anime-school, school guys-BORING.

The best moments in anime are those when they turn everything against the MC. Your best friends, were they even your best friends? Humanity-are they really better than those MONSTERS? or are they WORSE?

Should I be filled with RAGE? - NO. I am different.

I'm bad with writing reviews, but this is a short idea about what this anime is about. read more

Ok, I cannot even begin to put my hatred for this anime into words, but let me try.
If someone walked up to me and recommended this, I would act as if they spat on my late grandmother's grave. The anime is a punch in the face to the manga, and I curse whichever dumbass who thought it would be a good idea to make a CGI animation for a brilliant manga to hell and back, infinitely.

Anyone who scored this as a 10 obviously haven't read the manga. OBVIOUSLY.

I was reading the manga, and to be completely honest, I have never fallen for a story and read more

3D computer animation is less common in anime than it is in the West; they don't have a Pixar or a Dreamworks. So where is 3D animation used in anime, how has it developed, and how is it best applied?
