Mysterious immortal humans known as “Ajin” first appeared 17 years ago in Africa. Upon their discovery, they were labeled as a threat to mankind, as they might use their powers for evil and were incapable of being destroyed. Since then, whenever an Ajin is found within society, they are to be arrested and taken into custody immediately.

Studying hard to become a doctor, Kei Nagai is a high schooler who knows very little about Ajin, only having seen them appear in the news every now and then. Students are taught that these creatures are not considered to be human, but Kei doesn’t pay much attention in class. As a result, his perilously little grasp on this subject proves to be completely irrelevant when he survives an accident that was supposed to claim his life, signaling his rebirth as an Ajin and the start of his days of torment. However, as he finds himself alone on the run from the entire world, Kei soon realizes that more of his species may be a lot closer than he thinks. [Written by MAL Rewrite]


Ajin is horror/supernatural anime. About people who are ajin which means they possess immortal powers. The main plot is about a silent war between the humans and Ajin. It kinda Reminded me of Tokyo Ghoul. Okay maybe it isn’t that silent but the anime is very interesting. The main character doesn’t like the fact that he is Ajin. He meets other Ajin and starts thinking that maybe being an Ajin isn’t as bad as humans make it out to be and he struggles to keep his sanity in the messed up word he’s in.

The action and fight scenes in the anime were amazing. The gore was okay for a CGI. The music is amazing and I really liked the animation overall.

Overall Rate: 8/10
