Yes, parasite. I don’t know why I decided to watch this anime but it’s worth it and it is not your usual parasite movie where people are in panic and looking for the cure while brutally murder infected people, though that’s what I thought in the first 2 episodes.
Kiseijuu Sei no Kakuritsu tells us a story about the world where some people are infected with parasites all of a sudden. Parasites are living in people’s brains and take control of them. The bad news is, as expected, that they take uninfected human as their food. The story focuses on Izumi Shinichi, an average high school boy that got pretty lucky because the parasite fail to attack and occupy his brain and stay in his right hand instead. In short, he became friend with the parasite in his hand, named migi (japanese for “right”), and together they are trying to save people from those parasites while trying to hide their own identity as well.
Once again I will say that this anime is worth to watch. It is unexpectedly sad, supported with great BGMs, though the artwork doesn’t seem that dark. It portrays the hard situation of the main character that has to manage his relations with his family, his gf, and migi very well. Another plus point is how he is not the only good parasite in the anime. One thing that this anime miss is a brief explanation about where this parasites come from. Actually there is another thing but it will be a spoiler. Well for you who are okay with spoiler, the other thing that kind of tease my mind is the thinking of how these parasites are going to take over the world if they can’t breed new parasites. It is somehow proven when two parasites are having a human baby and in the end all parasites are suddenly gone.
