I finally finished the last 12 episodes in the past couple days after putting this on-hold for a few months. It was a solid show overall, 7/10, but the last quarter/third of the show was definitely not up to par with the beginning. I didn't really like how the show got so preachy at the end about "environmentalism" and precious Mother Earth. I felt like I was getting preached to by Miyazaki for the last few episodes and you could definitely tell that the manga material was a bit dated from that. Anyway, I had fun and enjoyed it but it failed to live up to the hype and the excellent start imo.
Anime that really questions Humanity
As far as I've seen looks really great and although the design of characters aren't of my style, I'm enjoying so much.
Parasyte grew on me (no pun intended) as I watched. Around Episode 18 the tone changed a little, but by the time it reached the final episode, it tied everything up weirdly and wonderfully.
It would be a great binge watch.
Really great anime ! I couldn't stop watching it :)It really makes you think about human nature as well.
It had all the potential to become a classic, at the end is just a decent anime with a great idea that was not well polished overall entertaining!
Good Anime... If You Love Super Natural and Aliens...
Pretty good thus far. Would advise you to rethink if you're squeamish around movies like The Thing or The Faculty. Apart from that, character design feels interesting and new. Story is told well and with depth.
Was pleasantly surprised by how much I came to enjoy it. I started watching it out of sheer boredom, initially. It's a solid anime with a compelling plot, and I liked the action scenes. The main character's development is interesting too. I feel it lacked a certain oomph, but that could just be due to my dislike of romance (there was more of that towards the ending).
It has changed a bit since the manga, most notably the art style and overall mood, but I definitely am still enjoying it.
So sad for his mother... :(
