Gamon Sakurai's horror manga Ajin has been announced for adaptation into a TV anime in Winter 2016. The manga was previously announced to be adapted into a film trilogy, with the first part scheduled for November 2015.

According to the news release, the TV series is produced to represent the original work more precisely. The manga follows high schooler Kei Nagai, who becomes an immortal demi-human (ajin) and is hunted by the government for experimental purposes. In addition to the TV broadcast on MBS, TBS, and CBC, the series will be streamed on Netflix, which began its service in Japan on September 2.

After I watched the PV, I quickly went to read the manga and finished within a few hours :D What I can say is, it's absolutely amazing and awesome. Though some people may have a bit of complain regarding Kei's morale but I like him that way >:] Looking forward to the anime (?) even though it's in CG and I've never watched that kind yet but I'll give it a try. So far so good so I'll give it 9/10 :D

P.S : I made the account just to post this LOL

Glad to see more horror in the anime mainstream. Thank you, Tokyo Ghoul, for opening that door up. Maybe the CG will work.

so we are getting 3D/CGI ajins? still a watch though

Sidonia had terrible CG though.

Sidonia CG looked weird to everyone because it was trying to keep Nihei style.

This is gonna the most popular shounen anime of 2016 because it will be the same amount of hype like Tokyo Ghoul.

everyone main question is Movies AND TV ?

they should do the same thing they did with Sidonia if they do both.
