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...

Do you know Breaking Bad? Imagine an anime where the first episode looks alike, but instead of a drug chimist, the protagonist became a fuc#@!* war machine to save the ones in danger.

Mean while, there is the antagonist, a teenager that doesn't have any empathy for people he doesn't know and kills to satisfy his ˜human˜ side.

That's whats Inuyashiki is all about.

Story: 9/10 - There's lots of intense scenes through the anime and you do agonize with the people living the situation.

Art: 9/10 - Thats an anime where the parts with CGI are well used (I'm not a fan of CGI on animes) and read more

From the moment this show started, I or we all knew that something is special about the aesthetics of the show, from the visuals to the awesome music.

Ichirou Inuyashiki is the average grandfather whose inabilities have caused his own family to abandon him, leaving him on his own, and together with an unknown teenager by the name of Hiro Shishigami onto a hill, where an unknown space object hits both of them, and the result is the epitome of both good and evil respectively, in cyborg form, that will change their lives forever.

HOLD IT! Before you go complain in my profile because I've given this a 5, let me explain. I'll focus on the good parts of this show before criticising it. Let's get on with it, shall we?

Also, I'd like to point out this review is mainly towards the work itself, not only the anime because it's currently still going on, and I want to give my point of view as someone who already knows where the original story is going. If the anime shifts away from the intended plot of read more

Most of the current reviews are due to watching few episodes instead of the being up to date so I'd advise reading this review first and/or not being able to handle real world situations that aren't graphic but touch on sensibilities.

This series has 2 protagonists; it's essentially showing you how a good person vs an evil person would handle becoming a god and what happens when they figure out each others existence. The beginning episodes are meant to highlight their intents and their sense of purpose or malice. It's essentially a take on if god and the devil were both on earth and showing the read more
