– Ajin: Demi-Human
Ajin: Demi-Human is one of the better done full 3D CGI anime, in my opinion.
The opening scene from the first episode is a bit jarring due to the 3D CGI being used. Eventually, you’ll hardly notice it. I didn’t even remember this series was completely 3D CGI until I rewatched it for the 3rd time.
The standout song from this season is the opening theme, “Yoru wa Nemureru kai?” (夜は眠れるかい?; Can You Sleep at Night?) by flumpool. The ending theme “How Close You Are” by Mamoru Miyano is all right, just not quite memorable.
Within the first few episodes, you’ll see how brutal and cruel this world is, perhaps a bit too similar to the real world. Kei, our main character can be calculating and maybe a bit of a sociopath. On one hand, he doesn’t seem to really care about anyone other than to give the outward appearance of normality. But he’ll cling to this fallacy despite causing him pain, as it is his only hold on his humanity. He’s a complex protagonist that you can’t be sure if you should be rooting for him or not.
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. Intended for mature audiences.
