When university student Zhang Chulan returns to his home village, he is devastated to learn that his grandfather Zhang Xilin's grave has been desecrated. As he investigates the cemetery in search for clues, he is attacked by a tomb raider using the false identity of Zhang Xilin's granddaughter. Left to die in a swarm of zombies summoned by the person who spirited his grandfather's body away, Zhang Chulan manages to escape thanks to qi, the power that his grandfather taught him.

When Zhang Chulan returns to his uneventful student life, he is shocked to again meet the tomb raider, Feng Baobao, who condemned him to a grim fate. Affiliated with a state organization tasked with handling outcasts known as qi wielders, Baobao forces him to join a delivery company that acts as a front for their true pursuits.

As various factions clash to seize the mysterious power Zhang Chulan is said to have inherited from his grandfather, the young man must learn how to choose his allies if he wants to survive in this dangerous world of outcasts.

I just read some reviews and I'm disappointing, but is your free opinion of course...

At first it seems an ordinary anime zombie, but IS NOT ... the story changes completely as they pass episodes (I say no more for spoilers avoid ) ... I say after seeing all the anime and hope you have a 2nd season because it has been in the best part of the plot. It is the anime that most surprised me this season: D I give it an 8 for this season, pending the second season that will rise this score ;)
I'm writing this because if someone is thinking to ...

Mixed Feelings
First off, if by reading the synopsis you thought this was a show about zombies (a la Highschool of the Dead)...it's not. It's about "Outsiders"--seemingly ordinary people with extraordinary abilities. One of those Outsiders is a girl who can control zombies, but she is NOT the main character.

Secondly, if you haven't started watching, I must pre-warn you of this part in the 1st episode which caused a fair number of people to give up in disgust. It's the scene where Houhou is trying to bury the MC, Soran, and he just sits there like an idiot. Why doesn't he just get up and run ...

Rumor has it that they use Hitori no Shita: The Outcast to torture prisoners. And from time to time masochists watch it on lonely nights too.


The creators either tried too hard to make something complex out of poor ideas or they came up with an idea that was so complex they failed to materialize it. Hitori no Shita is definitely not an anime you die waiting for a new episode every week, but you do die waiting for something interesting to happen while watching it.

Art & Animation

Fine backgrounds, reason why it's 2/10 and not 1/10. The animation is so awkward even the movements of the ...
