AJIN: Demi-Human is the latest Netflix Original anime to hit the streaming service. The series revolves around Kei Nagai, a student who discovers that he himself is an Ajin, an immortal being, after being hit by a truck. With his kind being rare, Kei is now being hunted by agencies who would like nothing more than to see what makes an Ajin tick.
Of course, mysterious beings are nothing new to anime, but what helps this anime shine is its extremely dark tones and the dark entities moving in the back. There is no telling just what the “black ghosts” are, but their presence is one that causes fear for the few unlucky enough to see them.
AJIN: Demi-Human definitely shows off quite a bit of action in its promotional materials, but don’t go in expecting nothing but fighting and firefights. This is a thriller above everything else, a solid one at that. The entire first season is available right now.
