If you liked the “Alien” movies saga and are a fan of body horror and nightmarish terror, then Parasyte: The maxim is definitely the anime for you. Before starting the show, I was initially sceptic as I’m not what you call too much into body horror, but when I finally made up my mind and watched episode 1, I instantly became hooked. The only real way I can describe my binge-watching experience is that it was absolutely gut-wrenching and terrifying. I’ve easily watched more than 100+ anime. However, Parasyte was just one of the few animes that I can call “Scary” and absolutely tragic. I still feel like the show is highly underrated and would like our readers to give it a try once. Therefore, if you would like to know more about Parasyte and what it’s all about, then make sure to read the entire post.

A Brief Introduction To The Plot
The plot revolves around a young 17-year old boy named Shinichi Izumi. One day the earth is secretly attacked by worms like alien parasites that enter the human host’s brain via the nasal passage or the ear passage in order to take full control of the human host and eradicate their individuality. However, as one of the parasite tries to take hold of Shinichi, he suddenly wakes up, and in a panic, the alien creature burrows itself in his right hand, taking control of it.
However, this accident ends up creating a sort of symbiotic relationship between the alien and the Shinichi. As both the species have retained their individuality. That is, Shinichi has full control over his brain, and the parasite has full control of his right hand and is able to use it to talk to him and well mould it into anything it desires. Since the parasite cannot kill Shinichi, as it would result in its death as well, both the species have to coexist together now.
However, Shinichi’s problems don’t end here. It turns out that these alien creatures devour their hosts’ brains and devour other humans for food. Not to mention, seeing Shinichi’s mutation makes him a target to all the parasites around him. Therefore, Shinichi using the alien in the right hand, which he now calls migi, has to combine each other’s powers and find a way to survive as humanity is now on the verge of chaos.
Will Shinichi survive this ordeal, or will he end up getting eaten by other aliens? Make sure to watch the entire series and find out.
