Halloween with DNA, Wakanim, Crunchyroll: discover 5 anime to shiver: Parasyte, Tokyo Ghoul, Monster, Kagewani, Junji Itô Collection …
TOKYO GHOUL (DNA, WAKANIM, NETFLIX)
In Tokyo, ghouls are rampant, cannibalistic monsters hiding among humans to eat better. Ken Kaneki, a shy student, is one day attacked by one of these famous creatures. Mortally wounded, he survives thanks to the transplant of the organs of his attacker … But he realizes little by little that he is starting to feel a suspicious appetite for his fellows …
While many readers of the original work judge this adaptation too rushed, the Tokyo Ghoul series is nonetheless accessible and effective for any lover of the horror genre. Brutal, uncompromising and even gory at times, this anime brilliantly exploits the theme of the legendary monster. The ghouls are thus added to the zombies, vampires and other creatures that have made us shiver. Special mention to the very trying scene of season 1, and which gives the hero his famous white hair.
Mysterious creatures have colonized the Earth by taking possession of certain inhabitants. A high school student, Shin’ichi, has been infected, but his brain is spared. Only his right arm is possessed by a parasite, Migi, whom he gradually learns to know. The two must now cohabit, but at the same time, Shin’ichi understands that the proliferation of parasites threatens the human species in the long term.
The presence of a foreign body in oneself is undoubtedly one of the most distressing themes. Parasyte marks and operates for its disturbing – and violent, in some aspect – approach to what would be a total invasion of the human mind. With environmental and philanthropic values, the anime also offers us some very moving moments. However, it is not in the lace, and its particularly striking opening scene is there to confirm it from the outset.
