So why the hell isn't there a Parasyte anime yet?
because it's scheduled for later in the year?
Don't make threads if you're not up to date with the news.
Holy shit, really? Who's making it?
We'll have to settle for manga for now

I don't get why Parasyte has such a large following.
Read through it, it was decent, but nothing special about it overall.
Because sadly, the whole world doesn't share the same tastes as you.
It's a well written story, and a top candidate when you want to pick an emotionally triumphant series.
It has a large following precisely so. Unless you suspect people bought into the series because it's moe and cute?
I found it a pretty prototypical story. Although, there are others that go even further back, I guess people kind of stick to this one.
Because It's a story told by master of storytelling - Iwaaki Hitoshi. It concentrates on your average high-school kid who has family which is part of the story, is not a delinquent or useless MC stereotype but humanely normal person. He is thrown into dangerous situation which when you look at it from far enough is pretty silly (alien in right hand) and Iwaaki knows this. That is why he can maintain the perfect balance between drama (which obviously arises from something like parasites in human bodies murdering an eating people) and humour ("silliness") of such situations. In Japan in became quite a big deal also because it was published at the time when environmental damage and protection debate was pretty big deal.
It's full of irony but not the completely heartless one, like when Shinichi is acting more compassionately and kindly because of his right hand as he is afraid he will become inhuman under its influence (-> thanks to inhuman presence he acts more humanely than normal humans, etc). The philosophical part of the series is very moderate in its presentation and ultimately resolves in utterly pragmatic way -> Shinichi throwing away his decision to let nature decide if the monster will die or survive, so he could kill the beast and protect his little family.
Then of course great drawing style of Iwaaki Hitoshi (pic related). He drawed Kiseijuu in Monthly Afternoon practically by himself without any assistants (well, he works that way every time).
>parasyte is from 1990
It's actually from the end of 1988 when first chapter was published in Weekly Morning Magazine. First four or six chapters were published in Morning and then because Iwaaki working alone could not keep up with the weekly schedule he transferred to Monthly Afternoon. First volume was publishedn in 1990 but manga started its serialization in 1988.
I hope (among other things) the anime won't try to modernize things and set it in 201X.
Migi is mai husbando
and a movie and I'm pretty sure a live action series.
The project specifically mentions two part movie adaptation (first movie in december 2014 and second one in 2015) and television anime adaptation. No live-action series.
Japanese public is quite perplexed about the movie adaptation. They are often referring to not-so-good Devilman movie adaptation from 2004 and are hoping that Yamazaki Takashi (director) can do a better job maintaining the spirit of the original than Nasu Hiroyuki as director of Devilman did.
Just a reminder, best girl dies
>Just a reminder, best girl dies
You are correct but you posted the wrong girl.
>master of storytelling
There's literally no plot development for 10 volumes. And there's no decent conlusion and endng because it has no global story line.
I liked this doujin
better than the manga
So you disliked it because it was about the experiences of a high-school student as opposed to a world-wide struggle against monsters with an climactic ending? That would have been a completely different story.
Shinichi survived and attained some happiness. Most parasytes learned to blend in and faded from public consciousness. Life went on without an apocalyptic genocidal war of extermination.
What the fuck did you think the series was about?
Is that what you absorbed from it all? What a shame. Author tries to tell a morality tale and you complain that there was no grand huge scheme to follow.
