It doesn't matter.
They are basically the same thing.
But the TV series will finish airing first (it'll end towards the end of March) while the movies are still gonna take a while (2nd screens in May so BDs in the Summer and the 3rd movie will almost be next year).

I don't think TV will cover all three movies. Maybe they rush things later on, but first episode was great in terms of pacing. As a marketing course, it is not very smart-make TV version, then make movie with same TV-scenes. I understand, if it will be like Shingeki, when they make recap movie because of big popularity of series.
About TV version. How much it will be covered?

P.S. CGI food looks strange. Aside from that, i have no complaints.

I have pretty mixed feelings about this ep? I know people are bashing on the CGI and I'm not particularly a fan of it in general.. But it wasn't bad! And I defintely think I'll get used to it after a few eps.

The thing that really caught my attention was the audio; the sound effects for the Ajin scenes were so fitting :o And the OP was a-ok

So yeah I'm looking forward to next week's ep! Hopefully it'll continue to stay faithful to the manga too :o

The CGI is quite disapointing, a good 2D animation would have done a better job.

Couldn't agree more. The story looks interesting though, so I'll keep watching it for now.

Complaining about the CGI won't change anything, so there's no point in doing so, but it was all right. I got used to it pretty early into the episode.

It wasn't much of a shocker that the MC was an Ajin. I look forward to learning more about them and seeing how the MC avoids the police and whatnot. Overall, this got off to a decent start, hopefully it can keep this up and remain somewhat interesting.
I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.

Not bad for the CGI, remind me of Sidonia. And pretty good for the opening. Still it's just first episode, so there's still time for another "judge".

One of the more exciting first episodes I've seen this season.

While I would've preferred 2D animation, I didn't think the CGI was terrible. It was bearable at the very least. The subs I watched seemed to be done by somebody who didn't fully speak both English and Japanese, so that kind of sucked.

I see a good amount of people liked the OP, but I didn't care for it too much. Maybe it will grow on me.

Overall, I'm looking forward to next week's episode.

I don't know if the English translations are the same for all sources, but from what I watched, I'm pretty damn sure the translators used Google Translate. Like wtf is that broken english?

Okayish start.

Don't mind the CGI,was actually looking forward to this prior to it airing but ever since I heard this'll be edgier and gorier than Tokyo Ghoul my interest and expectations for this went on the decline.

It's the first time I've watched a CGI anime and it didn't look as bad as I expected. The subs where I watched it didn't make sense half the time though.
The opening is good as well, as is the rest of the soundtrack in this episode.

This is actually the best CGI I've ever seen for anime. I already read the manga, and so far the action and plot seems great in the anime as well. Will keep watching!

The subs were terribad and damn near incomprehensible at times, but at this point getting any is much appreciated. On the bright side, the CGI is nowhere near as bad as I had feared it would be. Of course, I'd still prefer 2D animation to CGI, but I can live with this.

As for the episode, it more or less follows what I remember of the first chapter of the manga, except with a few extra bits here and there (primarily that bit at the start, which I do not remember seeing in the first chapter of the manga). It was definitely as interesting as expected based on that, and seeing how it all plays out will be interesting as well.

Also, I'm loving that OP and the ED is very good as well.

I was so happy they decided to adapt the manga.

Lets face it, the CGI isn't ideal at all and 2D would have been a much better suit.
Although it wasn't even close to the train wreck that i had thought this was going to be.

It isn't correctly subbed until now. Every streaming site is using the shitty subs. Guess, you'll have to wait until proper subbers pick it up.

This CGI is horrid, shit moves at 2 fps it almost feels like it's lagging, even Toei's animation is more bearable.
This could've been very popular but they decided to kill it with CGI
SHAME.

The story and characters seem pretty interesting for now and the CGI doesn't really bother me that much, looks neat and decent. The subs on the other hand were trash. Ost and OP seems pretty good.

I read the manga so I knew the story will be great. MC's voice actor is one of my favourites as well. In the end I think it was a great first episode and it will be rather good series.

Still... if only it wasn't CGI but normal animation. Sure, CGI doesn't bother me as the series will be good and I will definitely watch it, but if it wasn't for CGI, I would like it much more and the series could fight for number one spot this season while at this point, I am pretty sure what my choice for best of Winter 2016 will be.

I had to stop watching because of the subs. They were incomprehensible and caused my brain to implode... Hopefully better subbers will pick it up because I like the premise...

Sadly I do not give a shit at all for Episode 1.

The execution for the aspects for me were completely poor, but thats because the CGI makes it look more like a comedy than a horror, and its very making my hair pull.

I do not give a damn about the MC nor Kei about the situation, its just really underwhelming for me to see that and really, I think they could have done better than I thought.

Ajin for the first episode, it was completely awful, even THE SUBTITLES WERE SHIT.

The only good thing about it was the Music.

And my enjoyment counting: I hated the rest.

Oh god, those subs. Did Netflix license this like they did with Sidonia? The anime is pretty faithful to the manga and the CG animation was good for the most part. That Satou cameo at the end >.<
All credit goes to Sacred.

I would have enjoyed it more if the subs weren't absolutely horrendous! They sometimes said the opposite they were saying! None the less it was cool to watch.

Everybody complaining about the subs, there is a thread in the Ajin forum about subtitles.

it was confirmed that no good translation would be out until 5-7 days after broadcast by a joint effort of KAMIFS and Heroine.

the only way we can get a decent translation earlier is if the Netflix japan release contains subs. (Episodes are supposed to be released on Netflix 3 days after broadcast).

Really like the look to this. Polygon Pictures has an interesting way of doing CG, that I've grown quite fond of over the past couple of years (because of Sidonia no Kishi of course).

As far as the content of the episode is concerned, I really liked it. This was pretty intense for a first episode. Loved how Kai just drop kicked that police officer. Haha I'm looking forward to where this is heading.

I'm rather fond of this CGI since Knights of Sidonia so it doesn't bother me.

So the "did nothing wrong squad" recruited another poor child. *hugs*

The ED is very important. It is just great, the art and the song fit perfectly to create a gloomy mood that made me fall in love in few seconds. Just. Great.
