Storyline

Inuyashiki Ichirou is down on his luck. While only 58 years old, his geriatric looks often have him written off as a pathetic old man by the world around him and he's constantly ignored and disrespected by his family despite all that he's done to support them. On top of everything else, his doctor has revealed that he has cancer and it appears that he has little time left in this world. But just when it seems things couldn't get any worse, a blinding light in the night sky strikes the earth where Ichirou stands. He later wakes up to find himself unscathed, but he soon starts to notice that there's something... different about himself. However, it turns out that these strange, new changes are just what Ichirou needs to take a new lease on life and now it seems like there's nothing to stop him from being a hero worthy of the respect that he never had before... unless, that is, there was someone else out there with these same changes...

Cancer is truly mankind worst enemy
10 January 2019 | by phanthingaSee all my reviews

Inuyashiki is a very interesting and refreshing anime to watch if you're tired of the usual mainstream stuff and want to try something dark and edgy that look like it come straight out of the early 2000s anime. There enough shock value and absurdity in this anime to make you laugh like hell or shake your head in disgust, but in the meantime the characters development can be a bit rushed and the horrible CGI animation can take you out of the anime sometime but please don't take anything in this anime seriously or else you will miss out all the fun. I really like Ichiro Inuyashiki as a character not because how rare it is for the main character to be an old man but because anything he been through so realistic while the bad guy Hiro Shishigami who we supposed to hate and he did a damn good job at it just an edgelord for the sake of being an edgelord
