I see a trend xD

But don't worry, you're not alone. A lot of people like Matsuoka and Kaji's screaming. I'm just one of those who don't w because of that year when Kaji got a ton of MCs roles and was screaming in every show, that was overkill for me ¯\_(ツ)_/¯


Well, I get ya bro ;)

Should I watch the movie version or I should just stick on watching the tv series and reading the manga?

Ah yes? Well better than Yoshitsugu's scream anyway.

"Get money by the movie then rebroadcast it on TV and sell it too"

But the TV recut seems to adapt further than the first movie based on the last episode PV I saw. What is the point of a screening after TV broadcast for this 2nd movie?

I really don't see the point in making the movies but if they add a good chunk of stuff (even though I dont like Ajin that much) then it can be nice.

Why are they even producing a TV series and a movie trilogy in the first place?

Is it really that popular in Japan?


"Get money by the movie then rebroadcast it on TV and sell it too" sounds like a good business model for me and no it is not popular, the first movie did 28.5 million yen in 5 days which isn't that good.

The CGI is not exactly the best, so no, I don't think it has a lot of money

What does Knights of Sidonia have to do with Ajin?
Same studio, if the first sold well they would have the money to make more series
Oh I see

Well, it's on Netflix, so... maybe?

Cool, totally forgot about the OVA. I was like who's this Shinya guy? Went back to read that chapter 0 :) Shinya seems like a very Kaji character.

That key visual is so hype.

That PV is awesome. Can't wait for this movie, although we've technically seen a good chunk of it because of the TV series.

Mar 18, 2016 2:23 PM by GoldenDevilGamer

That preview is looking pretty hype.

Mar 18, 2016 2:14 PM by G_Spark233

Yes! Nice additional voice cast !
I'm enjoying Ajin so far, can't wait to see how things will play out.

Mar 18, 2016 12:14 PM by Meigetsu

Ajin so far was enjoyable enough kind of mindless work for me to actually pick up the manga. That said I can't wait to see how they handle the second movie. Hopefully it will get series re-release just like the first.

Cool, I like the key visual. Although with the current TV anime airing, I wonder what will be the differences between the movie/TV show.
