AJIN: Demi-Human is an action-packed anime series from Tokyo Broadcasting System that premiered in early 2016 and ran into 2017. The show follows the story of a young high school student named Kei Nagai (Mamoru Miyano) who discovers he is an Ajin, a type of immortal being existing in secret from humanity. Alongside his friend Kaito (Yoshimasa Hosoya), Kei must navigate a dangerous world of intrigue and betrayal as he tries to stay alive and uncover the truth about the Ajin.

The show's premise is based on the popular manga series of the same name by author Gamon Sakurai. Using his talented writing ability, Sakurai has created a complex and thrilling world full of unique characters and unexpected twists. The anime adaptation stays faithful to the original story and delivers an exciting and suspenseful viewing experience.

The main character of Kei Nagai is an intelligent and calculating young man who never backs down from a challenge. Despite his cold demeanor, he is fiercely loyal to his friends and will stop at nothing to protect them. His powers as an Ajin allow him to regenerate from any injury, making him almost impossible to kill. This makes Kei a valuable asset to both the government and the Ajin terrorist group, who both seek to capture him for their own agendas.

Kaito, Kei's best friend, is a more carefree and light-hearted character who serves as Kei's moral compass. While he may not have any special powers, Kaito is always there to support and assist Kei in his endeavors. He provides much-needed comedic relief to the show's tense moments and is a fan favorite among viewers.

The series also introduces a host of other compelling characters, including several other Ajin with unique abilities and personalities. One standout is Sato (Hochu Otsuka), the leader of the Ajin terrorist group who seeks to overthrow the government and establish a new world order. Sato is a menacing figure who is both intelligent and highly skilled in combat. He is a worthy adversary for Kei and proves to be a formidable foe throughout the series.

Another standout character is Kei's teacher and mentor, Mr. Tosaki (Jun Fukuyama). A government agent tasked with capturing and studying Ajin, Mr. Tosaki is initially suspicious of Kei but eventually comes to see him as an ally in his work. He is a complex and morally ambiguous character who often struggles with the difficult decisions he must make in his line of work.

The animation and visuals in AJIN: Demi-Human are top-notch and add to the show's cinematic feel. The action scenes are beautifully choreographed and executed, with plenty of excitement and suspense to keep viewers on the edge of their seats. The character designs are also impressive, with each Ajin possessing a unique and visually striking appearance.

The show's soundtrack is equally impressive, featuring a mix of high-energy rock tracks and hauntingly beautiful instrumental pieces. The opening theme, "Yoru wa Nemureru kai?" by flumpool, perfectly captures the show's dark and mysterious tone.

In conclusion, AJIN: Demi-Human is a thrilling and well-crafted anime series that offers a unique take on the superhero genre. With its complex characters, breathtaking action sequences, and suspenseful plot, it is a must-watch for any anime fan. Highly recommended!

AJIN: Demi-Human is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (26 episodes). The series first aired on January 16, 2016.
