Mysterious immortal humans known as "Ajin" first appeared 17 years ago in Africa. Upon their discovery, they were labeled as a threat to mankind, as they might use their powers for evil and were incapable of being destroyed. Since then, whenever an Ajin is found within society, they are to be arrested and taken into custody immediately.

Studying hard to become a doctor, Kei Nagai is a high schooler who knows very little about Ajin, only having seen them appear in the news every now and then. Students are taught that these creatures are not considered to be human, but Kei doesn't pay much attention in class. As a result, his perilously little grasp on this subject proves to be completely irrelevant when he survives an accident that was supposed to claim his life, signaling his rebirth as an Ajin and the start of his days of torment. However, as he finds himself alone on the run from the entire world, Kei soon realizes that more of his species may be a lot closer than he thinks.

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

Ajin's first season introduces an anime centered on intensity and intrigue, presenting noteworthy action sequences and a well-paced narrative. The action scenes are well choreographed, providing an explosive and entertaining experience with dynamic and fluid movements, thanks to the utilization of computer-generated character animation. However, the CG style may not appeal to all viewers, potentially presenting a challenge for those accustomed to traditional animation techniques. While it integrates smoothly into the series, some contemporary anime fans might find the visuals unappealing. The plot of Ajin relies heavily on action and suspense to advance the story, sometimes at the expense of character development. While characters' motivations ...

Ah, this show had so much potential: Unique and beautiful animation, interesting concept, a very cool vibe, the main character Kei is intriguing. He keeps track of his "friends" in his phone as "Friend 1," "Friend 2," etc., lol, because he is quite the sociopath. He has only one friend, to whom he no longer speaks because it would be a detriment to his social standing at school to do so, but when the shit hits the fan, that friend is the only person who's there for him, and Kei ends up making an incredible sacrifice inspired by him. Is Kei managing to break through ...

It's a shame that such a passable concept was ruined with such violently bad animation. I'm not stuck up enough to think that I could do better, and I understand that talented people probably put a lot of work into making this anime look the way it does, but I think they're all in the wrong business.

It's not even the FPS and speeding it up doesn't make it look any less terrible. The animation doesn't look like anime; it looks like one of those free video animation sites that we all used in high school to make presentations. It looks like an artificial intelligence was ...
