Kohachi Inugami, a detective who specializes in the occult, arrives at a remote village in the Japanese countryside, tasked by a hostess at a local inn to investigate a string of incidents involving rotting and mutilated livestock corpses that have been appearing for seemingly no reason. While surveying, Inugami notices a peculiar young boy working in the fields. Evaded by his peers and called "Dorotabou" for his stench, the young farmhand is surprised that anybody would take an interest in him.

Inugami, piqued with curiosity, enlists Dorotabou in helping him with the investigation, despite scorned looks from the villagers. Unbeknownst to Dorotabou, this investigation will reveal a strange new world to him—one of the beast-like entities known as Kemono existing in tandem with humans—along with breathing new purpose into his previously empty life.

To begin with, I want to apologize for my English, which may have errors. But what I wanted to say is the following. I really liked the anime Kemono Jihen, so much that I rewatched it again, but it was more for the sake of the story that I give it a 9, while the characters at the beginning I give a 6. Well, I saw a lot of people commenting on the characters as they are silly or that they are useless, and I read the manga and their development improves a lot later on. Even the protagonist, Kabane, improves his emotions. Akira gets ...

Mixed Feelings
I can say a lot of stuff, good and bad, regarding this anime, however one thing is for sure: if you are old to the anime scene, you have seen and re-seen the plot of Kemono Jihen in another tens, if not hundreds of anime.

A kid is taken under the protective arm of an older character, so much wiser and powerful then he seems; there, the kid befriends other two characters with similar backgrounds like him and together with the help of others, try to elucidate a mystery or another.

I am not saying is a bad plot, the anime is structured in a ...

This show was thoroughly disappointing.
It has an interesting premise and mature concepts which were unfortunately very badly executed.
The main character is bland, unreasonably overpowered and lacks any emotion. Pretty much every conflict is solved by him stepping in and sporadically getting a convenient, unearned power up.
The serious themes are handled so badly it hurts to watch. The characters were given horrific backstories that could have made a real impact but instead led to zero character development. In an effort to keep the show lighthearted they always revert back to their stereotypical base behavior and are not allowed to be affected by any ...
