This is my first review, so it might be a bit flawed, but we all gotta start somewhere I guess. Here we go:

Mushikago no Cagaster, or Cagaster of an Insect Cage is a Netflix original, and takes place in a post apocalyptic world, where humans are facing extincion after a disease (or something idk) turns some humans into massive, human killing insects. And we watch as Kidou, an executioner who's job is to deal with infected people, and Ilie, a girl that kidou saves and promises to take to her mother, the story then goes on, and we get more dept into these characters, read more
