Ajin – 26 (END)

「僕も約束しますよ、佐藤さん」 (Boku mo Yakusoku Shimasu yo, Satou-san)
“I Make Promises Too, Satou-san”

If this is indeed how Ajin concludes, I’m quite happy with the way it did so.

Ajin – 20

「クロちゃん, もう一度だけ」 (Kuro-chan, Mou Ichido dake)
“Kuro-chan, just once more please”

Shows which eloquently speak for themselves don’t lend themselves to a lot of interpretation, especially when they’re as straightforward and direct as Ajin is.

Ajin – 19

「飼い犬は大変だな」 (Kaiinu wa Taihen Da na)

Ajin – 17

「反吐が出ますね」 (Hedo ga Demasu ne)
“It’s Sickening, Right?”

Blah blah, blah, great episode of Ajin. Terrific pacing, yada yada. But warning: incoming bitching.

Ajin – 14

「なんかめんどくさくなってきた」 (Nanka Mendokusakunatte Kita)
“Things Have Become Difficult”

Either the CGI has gotten a little better since the first season or I’ve gotten used to it, because I hardly noticed it.

Ajin – 11

「ショウタイムだ」 (Shoutaimu da)
“It’s Showtime”

If there were any question that Satou-san is a crazy bastard, this episode should have pretty well cleared it up.
