I take it the manga's ahead of the anime, then? For some reason I'd assumed it was an original anime, maybe b/c the animation style doesn't seem like a natural for an adaptation.

Spoiler:

I assume the answer is yes, but I don't read the manga.

I'm not sure it was a super-popular manga and the animation style is considered kind of cheap-ish? So it was kind of taking a light risk on a movie series and then farming it out to Netflix for episodes too.

Also one thing I don't understand is why they don't sell like bloodstain hoodies and clothes. Like a yellow hoodie with the exact bloodstains from Kou on it.

If I was an edgy teen again I'd wear the fuck out of something like that

It's an extra OAV type episode that came along with a manga volume

Spoiler:

http://www.nyaa.se/?page=view&tid=815744

The English subtitle source file is in the user comments on google drive, and you'll have to activate them when you turn the show on

I don't know if there's a stream of it anywhere

Here you go Grin

WHY THANKS

Def gonna watch that in the next couple days. This show ended up being pretty good, and certainly managed to pump me up for next season (especially if there's more 11/12 in store, good gracious). Grin

I'm not sure about how many episodes there'll be. This season was the first two movies chopped up and each one only accounted for about 6ish episodes.

Eyyyy, since Berserk is over and Season 2 of Ajin is incoming, maybe should do the OVA (hopefully it's not Episode 1 of the new season)

OVA 1:

-The eyebrows, haircolour and rides a motorcycle, is this guy going to turn out to be secretly Kai with a different haircut? Please no, I really don't want more K-one syllable protags Sad  (Also, I'm pretty sure Kai had the same haircut in flashbacks as a kid)
-This OVA has the same pacing problem as the series, we don't need this much ordinary life character intro, especially given that there's nothing very compelling or different in it.
-Is this another one of those ads against distracted driving? It happens fast, put down the phone, immortal protagonists! Uh-oh
-He's more properly freaking out about his first death than most of them seemed to.
-His arm just sticks around? I guess that only makes sense given that Satou was selling organs, but still, does that mean people are going around finding rotting body parts everywhere Ajins have been doing their thing?  Ewwww!
-OH SHIT, THE HELMET!!!!  Shudder
-Regular humans have the black ghost, it just evaporates immediately? Iiiinteresting.
-THE INCIDENT!!!
-It's lucky his last thought before dying and unleashing a gazillion IBMs to enact his will, wasn't that he has to pee  Uh-oh
-Man, that one guy is dedicated to science

The new info is interesting, but this would have worked better if he'd shown more intense emotion at the friend's death and/or if we'd gotten to care about the friend instead of just a really generic introduction that they're friends. He freaks out a lot about dying and being an Ajin, so there was decent buildup, but his response to the friend's death was fairly low-key, it didn't seem more intense than the other stuff we've seen Ajins go through and not produce multiple IBMs.

I had thought that some of the show's flatness on interpersonal stuff was just because Kei's got such flat affect, but I think the writers are actually just not that great at showing emotion and relationships and they should probably keep focusing more on HOLY SHIT THEY USED THEIR POWERS HOW?! and THE FUCKING HAT!!!

It looks like there's a second OVA, but I'm not finding it subbed.

So apparently Season 2 already has two episodes out?! How did we miss this?! Second one's not subbed yet on the site I use, though.

S2E1  Run in circles flail :

-Even the recap of those last couple of episodes is exciting. Fucking Satou.
-Not liking this OP song as much as the old one. Maybe it'll grow on me.
-Ogura's made it into the opening. At this point, I'm going to be shocked if he turns out not to be an Ajin.
-OMG, Kou is so stuuuupid. How many times does he have to be kidnapped/murdered before he learns how to hide?
-How'd they get a car?
-The total, deep exasperation on Kei's face whenever Kou says anything. rofl
-Kei doesn't even acknowledge that Kou picked the wrong skill. rofl Kind of hoping this season is just going to be a road trip buddy comedy.
-Was he this stupid last season? I remember him more just an ordinary person who was unprepared for this stuff, not a total idiot.
-Tosaki and Kei together miiiiiiight be able to take down Satou. TEAM UP!  Run in circles flail
-I kind of missed Toddler-Ghost Laughing

Ep 2 likely just came out today.

I haven't watched Ep 1 yet because it sounded like someone just ran a Russian sub through google translate and I've just been kind of patiently waiting for someone to do something better :/

The one I watched was pretty clunky in parts, but I found it reasonably watchable, it wasn't the worst.

S2E1

Yeah, those subs weren't bad. The subs I watched for the original first few episodes of the first season were a lot worse

Spoiler:

- They replaced a super badass OP song with generic anime theme #289393
- "HEY NAGAI, LET'S GO" rofl
- I love the Kou and Kei dynamic. Kou's such a fucking idiot and Kei just can't stand it x)
- Kei being pretty cold-blooded in using Tosaki's girl/reason for not smoking and eating breath mints like that
- Fuuuck, Satou killing the dude like nothing (I think that was one of the guys who was in the secret room with Tosaki while Satou dropped the building last season)

S2E2

Shiny/thrilled

Spoiler:

- The fucking banter while they're in boot camp. Kei and Tosaki making murder jokes at each other, Kou wants to learn how to shoot rofl
- Kou getting all "SHE'S REALLY CUTE" and not realizing she's an Ajin and everything else rofl
- Tensai, kid. The word is Tensai.
- Doctor Cool doesn't care if you mind that he smokes
- HIS GHOST JUST RANDOMLY KILLS KOU OH MY GOD rofl rofl rofl
- Maybe we'll get some answers on why Kei saw a ghost from so long ago since he's apparently been an Ajin for quite awhile
- SATOU
- BON VOYAGE Shiny/thrilled Shiny/thrilled Shiny/thrilled
- Kei having panics about dudes with tranq guns and his ghost starting to lose it

S2E2:

-only Kou and Izumi reacted to seeing Satou offing the target, everyone else is totally cool about it. I wonder how Izumi's been at this for so long, and as an Ajin too, and not gotten desensitized.
-When Satou lifted his hat to show his new face, I half expected his usual hat to be under it Laughing
-Even though Kei'd been working out when he was in hiding, he still can't do pushups  ....which makes me wonder, do temporary changes to their body like more/less fat or muscle regenerate or do they return to some kind of default version of their body when they die?  Do they lose tattoos?
-Tosaki and Kei's banter during the boot camp session Laughing
-Ogura completely ignoring Kou's attempts at introducing himself, Ogura asking if it's okay if he smokes and then going right ahead and lighting up anyway, getting Tosaki's name wrong. rofl  I love this guy.
-Kei's ghost still needs to pee rofl Sad
-Kei first produced an IBM in infancy?! That's gotta be that scene they kept flashing back to in Season 1!
-Could the fact that he has too much ghost mean he somehow took in some of someone else's when he was a kid?? Or detached too much of himself into his ghost and that's why he's so cold and his ghost acts like an angry kid?
-Ogura asking how long Kei's been an Ajin must mean he doesn't think it's something you're born as, you only become one when your ghost fails to dissipate when you die (since the OVA showed regular humans have them)
-Okuyama's ghost tries so hard!
-What Satou's doing on the plane seems really dangerous, if something goes wrong and he can't get out when it crashes, he could land up endlessly dying at the bottom of the ocean  Shudder
-holy shit, toddler-ghost's freakout! This kind of does make me think his emotions are channeled into the ghost somehow.

Hrmmmmmmm, I was thinking that Kei had died as a child and rez'ed, but his little sister was upset that their dog died, so maybe it was dog life force?

It seemed human-shaped, I'd assume a dog life force would be roughly dog-shaped. Maybe he's a soul-vampire and absorbed the dying dog's life force into his own?

S2E3:

-getting more info on IBMs and personality Shiny/thrilled
-Tosaki's "shut up, Nagai." Those two seem to kind of enjoy hating each other.
-Tanaka and Satou being all "what is he talking about?" "no idea." Laughing
-Man, the team assigned to protect the minister doesn't even have sprinklers?!
-Whoa that ghost is creepy with the split-face smile. Shudder
-Kou learning to shoot Laughing
-That bald guy has a lot of insight for someone I figured for a red-shirt.
-Kou can't read middle-school kanji Laughing
-"but I've already died quite a lot recently" rofl
-d-did Kei blush when Kou called him amazing??
-I thiiiink Kai's cellmate is in the intro. That's probably not a good thing.Uh-oh
