Parasyte: The Maxim (Kiseijuu: Sei No Kakuritsu): Anime

Hey guys, how’s it going? Rahul here coming in with a brand new blog. Hop everyone has had an amazing week. I still have exams going on so sorry for the day late post. So let’s begin the review of this anime ‘Parasyte’!



This psychological thriller, science fiction anime was written by Hitoshi Iwaakiand was released in October, 2014.

No. of episodes: 24


  • Shinichi Izumi
  • Migi
  • Satomi Murano



The story revolves around the life of 12th grader, Shinichi Izumi. As parasytes are taking over people’s body all over the world, Shinichi Izumi is also a victim of this parasyte attack. But, to his luck, the parasyte only gets as far as to Shinichi’s right arm. Still having his human brain intact, Shinichi’s main mission is to work along with the parasyte in his right arm and go and stop all parasyte’s in the world. This leads to him leading a whole new life with more sorrow, friends, enemies etc.



A great anime guys. This was actually recommended to me from my friend and I must say it was worth it. Just saying, I saw the uncensored version. It had a bit of bad language, there was lots of blood. LOTS of blood. And a scene that was slightly more than a “Kid’s anime”. But its story is really fascinating. I love the action scenes and I love Shinichi as a character even more. The way his character develops through the anime is really awesome. The opening and ending are ‘meh’. The anime has wayyyyy too much suspense. Which was sometimes kinda irritating but it’s what made me watch the next episode immediately. The animation is actually pretty good. I would highly recommend to watch this anime as a one time watch. It is honestly very entertaining. Especially the last few fights. The only complaint I had is that the ending was kind of annoying and it was beginning to gt very repetitive. It was like fight a bit, almost die, say dying speech, run, repeat. That happened in I think the second last episode. On the other hand, the last episode was pretty cool way to end it. I’m glad they didn’t stretch it out any longer. It’s good just as it is. Overall good.



I would give this anime 3.5/5 stars.
