THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Well that was interesting.

I like how Kei is developing his powers more and more in relations with his Ajin. Cat and mouse game continues with agents dispatched to hunt down suspected individuals. I also hate to admit it but Satou's plan including the usage of media waves (Ajin.net or whatever) is quite clever.

Kei being reluctant to help out the elderly woman, lol. And Nakano had luckily gotten out of sight through another one's help. Decent episode. Seems like both will confront each other in the next one.

Kei is starting to feel more mysterious as his behavior is very weird. He seems like the guy that does something only because it's "right", not because it's "good". Great episode though. Also that website: http://www.ajin.net/

Aghh, really frustrated they excluded Barrel Man's IBM and Kou warning the guy to let go (it helped established his caring personality).

Still, I like the newly added scenes (like the ones with the grandma) and drug guys already know each other (good bye Drug Guy 1's ugly outfit)

wow Kei is a better person than me I would've taken the old lady's groceries and peaced out! Poor new kid having to jump to escape, must hurt like a MF. This makes me think it's a hint that his IBM is the winged one

Lol some of the faces Kei was making in this episode were pretty fucking hilarious. Kinda reminds me of myself sometimes. I like how we're really starting to see more of Kei's true nature. Like someone else said above, he seems like he only does the right thing because of pre-established societal expectations, not because he's actually a good person. It seems like that Nakano guy is planning to find Kei and maybe team up with him, that would be kind of cool to see. And whatever sketchy shit Satou has planned definitely sounds 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.

Satou recruiting Aijin's to help kill lots of people. Not everyone is in agreement. Nakano the only one to escape.
He sure has got some bad luck. Falling off the building and landing into those electric wires and then getting run over by Izumi and still somehow survived.
Kei learning how to summon his IBM.
Seems like these two will eventually meet.

Very nice episode, everything was adapted well. Unfortunately, Naruto 2.0 was introduced and he will become an active MC, but it's okay. Kei's faces were priceless, and the way he pretends to care is just... well, fitting for a sociopath like him.

I cannot wait until

Oh, so that's why he was standing at the meeting place rather than hiding and having one over there. I thought he was just being dumb/inexperienced. haha

Well, it looks like he doesn't make any progress. Just traveling here and there. But this Anime, I guess it doesn't just focus about Kei alone. Previous episode is like focusing on Tosaki and the current with Satou and his new ally "meeting". So "bear with it" is all I can say, I guess

Decent episode. Was slightly disappointed with some of the changes made with the Ajin meeting but whatever.

It was cool to have Nakano introduced. Can't wait for him and Kei to meet up.

Satou continues to be hype. Final line sent chills down my spine.

Same, I think it made the flow better too, instead of us just suddenly seeing Kei with the grandma. Polygon Pictures really delivers with their adaptations so far imo regarding pacing and how faithful it is to the source material, while only cutting down a few small scenes.

Yeah I found myself really liking all the expressions the characters make in this so far, especially Kei and Kou's in this episode.

Speaking of Kou, I laughed when he was laughing about how his neighbor called the ambulance and saved his ass from Tosaki. The paramedics just thought Kou hit his head really hard, lol. They're kind of bad paramedics though, they just left him and if he wasn't an Ajin, he really would've died instead of resetting. I didn't know Kou would be voiced by FukuJun. Like Mamo and Kei, I don't think FukuJun really fits Kou, but it's not a terrible fit either I guess.

Liking how far they're going with Ajin.net XD

This remains really captivating in terms of showing us the conflicting views on human nature. Man, that cat and mouse chase. I am really digging it.

And oh, Kei remains a sociopath. Great.

uhmm... a bit of plugging my blog. Thank you for paying this site a visit. :)

Good episode. Kei continues to show some hints of kindness and that he isn't as heartless as he is lead out to be. Lucky for him the old lady was nice.

The new kid of freaked me out a bit, but I am curious on how what role he will play when he meets Kei. Satou gathering his army by force + that video he made is just scary :c
It felt pretty real.

Great episode, even if Kou got super lucky to get out of every single situation that he happened to end up in. Also, interesting to see Satou finally putting his plan into action, especially witn that sinister video of his at the end.

Wow there's more Ajin, I never thought they would gather together. I'm feeling more happy for Kei, finally. He seems to be in a little bit of peace and has more time to clear his mind. This is the first episode that made me laugh a little, because of the other Ajin's face whilst in the ambulance of course.

So more (Ajin) characters appeared. Looks like that wasn't the last time we would see them. It's getting more interesting. Good episode. It was also hilarious how that stupid hit Satou as well, lmao.

So Sato's plan is mass murder. Of course not all the ajins who gathered have psychopathic tendencies so four of them disagree with the plan. When they disagreed, I had this terrible feeling that something bad is going to happen – Sato just won't let them go that easily. I did think last week that if any one of those ajins refused to go along with the plan, Sato could just behead them. Seems like he is only trapping them. Two people manage to avoid getting hit – the guy most openly opposing Sato, and the kid, Kou. And the man gets caught but Kou gets away.

And Tosaki spots Kou in the tv channel video, following something invisible with his eyes. And he has some goons sent after him to get him.

Kou had his ajin identity a secret and now people know he's an ajin which puts him at a disadvantage as now he will have to shake off those people after him and if word gets out many more people will be after him. And he's the only one out there who knows Sato's plan and his hideout and the faces of those aiding him. He's got a lot of stuff to do and now he's also spotted Kei's IBM while he was experimenting. And they can trust each other since they're both against Sato and are on the run.

Meanwhile, Kei accidently knocked down an old-fashioned lady from her bicycle and reluctantly helped her out. And that woman takes him to her home to give him something as thanks for helping her. And this old woman doesn't care whether Kei is human or ajin. And this shows that Kai was right – there will be people somewhere who don't care whether you're human or ajin. If you look like a human, you may as well be one.

And now having gotten a little break from running away, Kei is testing out his IBM and is practicing with it which has drawn the attention of Kou.

This was a brutal episode. Tosaki freakin rammed his car into Kou who was already injured having fallen from the seventh floor. Shimomura knew exactly the pain Kou was going through. She km that Kou was going through hell but she couldn't do anything against Tosaki and she couldn't bring herself to ram the car into an already injured guy. Shimomura does seem reluctant to do quite a lot of things and is scared of Tosaki. Maybe she'll leave Tosaki at some point and join Kei's party or something possibly after Tosaki tells her to do something extremely brutal and inhumane to an ajin.

Sato's mass murder plan is stupid. It will only make people hate ajins – and most people are indifferent towards them if they don't hate them. The anti Sato ajin man tried to knock some sense into Tanaka but probably couldn't.

I love Kei's facial expressions.

Satou is scary and badass as always.

Man Ajin is probably my 2nd favorite this season now. It keeps getting better, and I'm loving it even more.

Also Ginger boy got that bad end of the stick making an enemy out of Satou :/

I really liked the exchange between the blue shirted ajin and Tanake after he shot him, specially Tanaka's face as the man tells him that panic will make the whole nation hunt ajins.
Good episode and the facial animating was notably fine. I liked the granny's awkward eye movements as they listened to the news.

Kei is literally the best protag from any anime I've seen simply because he feels like a realistic character who is ordinary vs some caricature or overhyped or overpowered MC/protagonist.

his facial expressions and side-eyes gave me life.

Episodes 1-7 were just fine and nothing else but this one changed my mind about Ajin completly. If it keeps that level it will become a good anime.

Another cool episode!
We have another Ajin who is the about the same age as Kei...name is Kou...this kid has some cool evasion moves!
Tanaka sucks at being a marksman!
Kei is studying his own ajin and taking note but leaving a vertical black matter like that is a risky idea that could also alert demi-human fellows!
Poor Kou falling again for the 2nd time and not only that! getting hit by a car damn! at least he died and reset again thx to ajin powers and will escape again.
The video stream of Satou "ajin.net" is the actual website of this show!
looks like next episode, Kou will confront with Kei and would be getting along.
5/5.

Edit: LOL at Kei's tshirt: "ALL MEN BY NATURE DESIRE KNOWLEDGE" this should have been all men by nature are perverts.haha!
