TL;DR Review

Unfortunately, I was only able to see the first movie of Ajin. But according to other comments online, the TV first season is actually the 3 movies smushed together. They cut out little scenes here and there and the TV version is the edited version. Base on the first movie compared to the TV version, I can’t tell anything was different or cut.

As it is almost impossible to find the movie version versus the easily available TV version, I would just recommend watching that instead.

I highly recommend Ajin: Demi-Human to mature viewer that enjoy plot and character driven anime. There are way more dialogs than your typical action anime. This anime contains graphic violence and some suggestive themes/dialogs.

How Not to Summon a Demon Lord Season 1 (2018) Review

Takuma Sakamoto is a hikikomori gamer who is mysteriously transported to the world of his favorite MMORPG, Cross Reverie, with the appearance of his own character in the game, the Demon Lord Diablo. The two young girls who summoned him, the pantherian Rem and the elf Shera, attempt to use a spell to make Takuma their servant, but due to his passive “Magic Reflection” ability, the spell rebounds, and both end up with magic collars stuck on their necks, thus becoming his slaves instead. With a serious case of social anxiety, Takuma decides to act like his character while interacting with others, and makes use of his high stats and vast knowledge of Cross Reverie’s lore to survive in his new environment, traveling along with Rem and Shera to look for a way to remove their slave collars while helping them with their own, personal issues that led them to summon him in the first place.
