Inuyashiki Ichirou is down on his luck. While only 58 years old, his geriatric looks often have him written off as a pathetic old man by the world around him and he's constantly ignored and disrespected by his family despite all that he's done to support them. On top of everything else, his doctor has revealed that he has cancer and it appears that he has little time left in this world. But just when it seems things couldn't get any worse, a blinding light in the night sky strikes the earth where Ichirou stands. He later wakes up to find himself unscathed, but he soon starts to notice that there's something... different about himself. However, it turns out that these strange, new changes are just what Ichirou needs to take a new lease on life and now it seems like there's nothing to stop him from being a hero worthy of the respect that he never had before... unless, that is, there was someone else out there with these same changes...

The first episode had me intrigued, it was pretty unique. I liked the concept of taking a common, background character, turn his life tragic and then reverse it.

But the the second episode was the best, it was brilliantly terrifying! I'd noticed before how weird their voices were and how odd the characters acted. I didn't understand why until this episode.
It was completely unexpected, the execution, voice acting, and the characters all seemed so very real. As if this took place in real life. It was truly one of the best performances in anime. Ever.

The villain's character has already been established as a fantastically "evil" character. read more

Note that this is only the second review I make and that my review will be updated over time.

Oh man, how should I start? Well, know this... Inuyashiki isn't your typical Action/Psychological/Drama anime... I've seen a lot of anime over the years but this is completely original and unique.

There's only 2 episodes at this point and I can already say that I'm impressed with the plot, the sound and even more with the characters.

Characters: The MC also known as Inuyashiki is basically how the synopsis describes him. An old man without any luck in his life and because of that his family disrespect him read more

The second episode of Inuyashiki does an absolutely emphatic job of dismantling all of the intrigue generated by its premiere, with about all the subtlety of a bulldozer in doing so.

The idea of an anime centered around a protagonist in his later stage of life was inherently interesting to me, just for how unusual a thing it was. Inuyashiki's premiere episode, for all the faults it did have, still did an effective enough job at setting the table for what appeared to be a story of an innately sympathetic character having to traverse a world where his place in it had just been completely turned read more
