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.
