Synopsis

For high schooler Kei—and for at least forty-six others—immortality comes as the nastiest surprise ever.

Sadly for Kei, such a feat doesn't make him a superhero. In the eyes of both the general public and governments, he's a rare specimen who needs to be hunted down and handed over to scientists to be experimented on for life—a demi-human who must die a thousand deaths for the benefit of humanity.

Polygon Pictures is the name of the studio behind this film, and the anime series Sidonia no Kishi/Knights of Sidonia. I bring them up because despite only having seen one completed series from Polygon Pictures (at the time of this review being posted) it was enough for me to make them my most hated anime studio. This hatred is derived from Knights of Sidonia, or as I refer to it Sci-Fi: The Anime since it’s biggest piece of sci-fi trite I have ever seen in any form of media. Every single plot point was predictable, it didn’t put a new spin on any established sci-fi read more

Ajin: Shoudou demands us to contemplate the definition of "Human" and the extent to which one needs to use his/her abilities in a way that is morally just.

Despised by society, Ajin are humans who have regenerative properties and cannot die. Kei Nagai, a senior high schooler, learns upon surviving what would've been a fatal accident that he is an Ajin with the special ability to summon a "Black Ghost". These Black Ghosts are dark, mummy-like figures (similar to the one in the movie's cover art) which seem to be controlled by the Ajin's unconscious mind. Yet, they are able to exert deadly physical harm to read more

So...here it comes, the movie for the much awaited Ajin. Personally, I've been waiting for this for a very long time. I have not read the manga (yet) and have not watched the anime yet (airing now).

Story 9/10:
The movie introduces the concept/world of Ajin, where some random humans happen to develop a mysterious super power, causing them many troubles and raising the ultimate anime question: "Am I still human?". Doesn't sound very original, right? We have seen this in many other animes like Ergo proxy, Parasyte, Tokyo Ghoul, etc...
However, the storytelling of Ajin is what makes it very enjoyable. It is very dynamic, there is read more

A story featuring a boy who gets special powers while losing his humanity is not exactly a new thing. The same concept exists in anime such as Kiseijuu: Sei no Kakuristu and Tokyo Ghoul, but Ajin takes this concept and handles it in a great way. What makes this unique and different to other anime with the same concept, is that the Ajins are immortal, so rather than being killed, they are brought in as a specimen and get experimented on in what could be seen as torture. In this movie, both the humans and the Ajins are presented in a way with makes the read more
