One day, on his way to visit his grandfather's grave, Zhang Chulan is attacked by zombies in a graveyard. In the midst of that situation, he is saved by a mysterious girl, who wields kitchen knives in order to kill the enemies. The girl tells Chulan, who is relieved, to face his hardships head on and leaves. However, Chulan later sees that girl again at his university. From that moment, Zhang Chulan's destiny begins to move. There will be strangers with special powers appearing one by one, with battles involving those abilities. Each episode will bring a new mystery to light.
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
mouths and eyes are weird and off. It doesn't even look like a group of people put any effort into it, the lack of fluidity is so visible it hurts. Maybe it's the very first project of a brand new studio and I'm just being mean.
The OP and ED are probably the best parts of this show (even the animation); if you're not interested in watching the anime, watch the OP&ED separately and consider you've seen enough of Hitori no Shita.
The background music is also fine, but then again it's background music. What can go wrong..
Given how many relatives of the two MCs are involved here, you can just divide them into XUs and ZHANGs. And that's pretty much about it.
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
watch this anime or not, you need to try because will change your opinion in each episode. I just will said the anime have accion, drama, magic and a dark history that you will put in front of your monitor until you finish this anime :D I hope a 2a season :D
Finally, china blessed us with another Zombie stuff.
There's no secret to the success of animes like this,either you need to have tons of fan service like "high school of the dead" or such hype that will make it widely popular even before it start airing,like what happen to "Kabaneri of the iron fortress" and having a logical plot is irrelevant for such genre.
But unfortunately "Hitori no Shita: The Outcast" got none of it but still there're few surprising element in it,at least I thought so at the beginning.
PLOT- (BIT SPOILERS)
It's a tale about chou the strongest of all outsider (People with supernatural power but are
good for nothing),a man who can defeat dozen of fierce warriors in expense of few scratches using some ancient style but he's long death and a corpse now so the plot focuses on his legacy,his only grandson chou soran who inherited the same power and can turn himself into "CHINESE SUPER SAIYAN" as well and now different evil organization are after him and sending zombies,psychopath,lolis to track him down, but as the anime equation goes,for every bunch of bad people there'll be same numbers of good people and here's no different,there's an express delivery organization which is keeping him safe and helping him to develop his skills.
Literally, there isn't anything to the plot but the anime tried hard to depict the matters in such manner as if it's one of those mystery thrillers but tbh, it made the stuff more confusing for the viewers.
Each character is like creation of the saitan himself,you can never find them in any other " animu"
First of all lets hail 'Fu hoho" the ultimate reincarnation of the ghost from poltergeist, she's the main female lead as well,an invincible killer machine with little to no emotion and such gorgeous noodles like hairs.
Cho Soran is the main male lead and focus of the plot, the unluckiest virgin,I don't know what else to say.
There are other cringy characters as well but their names are so complicated,no reason remembering them.
Sometimes it's hard for me to figure out if a character is really thinking or talking as the mouth rarely moves and even if it does move,it make the face looks so awkward.
Basically,one of the poorest animation I've seen in recent times.
Another below average show of this season to cover up the list.
People are giving this show much more credit than it deserves. The title of the anime is spot on tho, Hitori no shit.
I don't usually get triggered by anime, but this is a new low.
We follow in the footsteps of a "virgin" Chou Soran a heir to some powerful family. One sudden day the grave of his grandfather is pillaged and he has to find out why. On his way to his dear grandfathers grave, he finds goku, no wait i mean Fuu Houhou. Fuu just like Soran, are supernatural humans who can freely control their Ki and use Martial arts as their weapons,
called outsiders. In a world filled with people like them Soran is extremely special and is headhunted by many evil organizations, but fret not, during the story you will find out why, but not really :)
This anime is trying to be something original and to follow the whole martial arts ki-superpower thing to an extent that it's just horrid. What could have been key-parts of this anime ended up as dull battles with zero progress(not even one good battle at the end of the anime), a main character that is your typical young "i want justice, i have this awesome superpower, i am stronger than you think" attitude with no character progression. The other characters except our Fuu "GOKU" Houhou are so miniscule you won't even bother thinking about them as none even leave a single trace of impression.
Oh did i mention that there is comedy in this anime and most of it is about Soran being a virgin? I also feel that the mix the anime is trying to do between comedy and action, just can't be taken seriously, the comedy is slapstick and dry humor about being a virgin. Now the worst part is, this anime tries so hard to reach a Shounen level that is just dosen't know how to deal with the story, because there literally is none.
This is the new generation of anime, thats so horrible i can't even imagine why this got produced at all. With each episode you keep expeting, "wow when is an amazing battle gonna start with our main character doing something really cool?". Well don't bother. If a fight starts, it's 30 seconds long and in the end goku comes, kicks everyone and it's over. No fights last longer than 3min.
There is just nothing, this anime lacks soul. Nothing to captivate it's audience and being so damn slow paced, it even ended in a way so that they can get a season 2, if they sell well... Let's be honest, that will never happen. Or you will have to read the manga for the rest, but at this point if' the anime is this dissapointing, the manga will be as well.
I Give it a solid 2! I would have given it a 1, but damn I just had to give it +1 for this crap to even leave the studio and reach the tv. Hurray, for Hitori no Shit. I honestly recommend this if you are on the verge of quitting anime, as this will definitevly seal the deal.
