Well, kids gather around, it’s time for your grandpa to tell you about the story of the good old days of anime. Back in my day, anime didn’t have the girl’s big chesticles, or people playing children card games with motorcycles. Now it’s easy for you whippersnappers to get all kinds of anime.
We had to watch it on the Sci-Fi channel or rent it at Blockbusters. We did it, we liked it. But thank the makers that it’s easy to find some good shows that remind me of the olden days.
Shows like Ajin.
Kei Nagai is your regular high school student, who knows very little of Ajin. They have been mentioned in class before but Kei barely paid any attention to it. Although now he’ll understand everything about them, after he survived an accident and is now being proclaimed as an Ajin.
This show is just superb. Blood, violence, and horror elements, it takes me back to the good days. And I want to take you back to those days as well.
This list will be a mix of the old and new of anime. So here it is 8 Anime Like Ajin: Demi-Human.
