Now, why is it really...okay? How could you screw up a simple anthology comic?. Well, this series ran in ARIA, a shoujo magazine that is really underground and not popular anyways, so the authors could've done whatever they wanted. Considering all things, using shoujo authors to portray Parasyte is a horrible idea. Half of these stories are just stupid declarations of love, and the other half are legitimately good. The tone is incredibly botched, ranging from serious to silly, to just dumb, all with no consistency. Really, why would you throw in Ema Tooyama, known for romcoms, and Kaori Yuki, known for incredibly dark gothic horror, into the same magazine? The styles are incredibly different and don't mesh well at all.
And, that is really what kills this series. It is just not very consistent. Some stories are horrible, and others are really good. Overall, I would recommend this for hardcore fans, and shoujo fans. Overall, the good stories are the only thing that really saves this incredibly shallow tribute to one of the best seinen of all time.
