Ajin: Immortal 3D
15 April 2016 | by warnke-christophSee all my reviews

Most of the Ajin-Manga fans hate the 3D-Style the new Ajin-anime has. Especially the younger fan base cant understand the importance of this type of animation. A Seinen-anime like Ajin doesn't need a child-comfortable animation, it needs the 3D to create his unique fight-scenes which are that great that the action of common-known anime like One Piece looks cheap and frumpy. Of course, the face expressions of the characters suffer because of the 3D, but it doesn't matter in an action-splatter anime.

The action is not the only thing that sets this series on fire: The great idea and the well considered plot are hilarious. Its about Japan from where we stand with only one difference: Everyone knows about the existence of Ajin. Ajin are ordinary people from the outside, but they have some supernatural abilities, and the most important is that they are not able to die. If an Ajin gets killed, he will restore his life to full health. So only the humans, who die accidentally, by sickness or by murder and revive immediately, get to know what they really are. Exactly this is what happens to the protagonist, an ordinary high-school student who gets in a deadly accident in front of his friends and a lot of strangers. He revives before their eyes and needs to run away after; because there is a bounty of hundred millions yen for reporting an Ajin that leads to his arrest. So the big hunt begins, police officers, special forces, bounty hunters and other Ajin appears during the plot fighting each other, without the scheme of good and evil, in this anime every party has some good points to fight for. This plot is also really into details, so it doesn't let space for any plot holes and all explanations for supernatural stuff doesn't appeal appropriate at any point. The characters are like the plot: Special and well thought out. The protagonist looks in the first place like the anime stereotype: a regular student who gets some abilities and turn into a hero. The first two things match, the third point is argueable, because he gets more and more selfish and helps only himself. He is smart at some points and he learns from his mistakes which makes him to an understandable, real character. But the protagonist is not an exception, all of the leading characters are extraordinary, but to describe them would spoil a lot.

For all those fans of action and splatter and good plots, especially for fans from Parasyte, Tokyo Ghoul or God Eater is Ajin a big MUST. Same as the mentioned anime Ajin takes u on a trip you cant stop until the series is over, a trip where u will go on a ride through action, blood, drama and some cool patter without losing its speed, so u don't get the time to feel bored at any episode.

The only bad thing about this series is, that there is only a small chance of getting a second season, because 3D-animation are not that popular and gets a lot of hate from the community.

It is sad that these people will never appreciate this masterpiece without even watching it. I can just say that u better don't judge an anime by its unusual type of animation, being different is not equal with being bad.
