Summary and plot
In the winter of 2016, the POLYGON PICTURES studio, famous for its series anime Knights of Sidonia, released a new anime series based on the famous manga Gamon Sakurai. This is another dark story of survival and struggle.
Kei Nagai was a regular schoolboy, who was perhaps too obedient. His goal in life was to become a decent human being. Most likely, his obedience helped him conceal his fears and repressed memories. The boy remembered that a few years ago something unexplainable happened to him. Then it happened again when Kei was already in high school: the boy was hit by a car, but for some unexplained reason he not only survived, but his injuries were healed on the spot. This is how Kei learned that he is an immortal semi-human named Ajin.
Such semi-humans appeared seventeen years ago, when a military experiment was conducted. By the time this story begins, there are 46 semi-humans in the world, which are all being hunted by the government and large corporations. A hefty award was promised for their capture, so Kei quickly learned what it’s like to feel as a hunted animal. His life quickly turned to hell – he was constantly on the run, constantly in hiding. The young man doesn’t have many people he can trust, although he does have a few loyal friends.
Current season and renewal expectations
The series was filmed using 3D graphics, just like Knights of Sidonia, with a dark story that captures viewers’ attention right away. It’s unlikely that the studio will be able to fit the entire storyline into 12 episodes, so we will most likely see season 2 in the fall of 2017.
UPDATED May 3, 2016: The second season of the anime series Ajin will be released in October 2016. The debut installment was aired from January to the end of March of 2016 and consisted of 13 episodes. The POLYGON PICTURES studio that created the new anime series is also working on a trilogy of animated films. The first movie, titled Ajin: Shōdō was released in November of last year. The second one, titled Ajin: Shōtotsu will be released on the big screen on May 6, 2016, and the third one, Ajin: Shōgeki is scheduled to premiere on September 23, 2016.
