It’s been a while since i wrote my very first impression on Ajin and to be honest i thought that CGI is nuisance, Well i have to admit that i was wrong. I will be changing my opinion on the CGI Animation, and that is – “It’s freaking awesome!” it perfectly suits the series as well as the Anime looks more badass and realistic. I somehow feel that if Animators went with the traditional style then the story would have not been such realistic as it is now. Also i think, finally it’s the right time to share my opinion on what happened between episode 2-5. For those who want to read the impression and my opinion on the first episode of the series then you can visit the link here : Ajin Anime – First impression
Ajin Anime episode 2-5 review
In first episode we found out that our Main character Nagai Kei is Ajin, since his identity was discovered all the government authorities went after him. For Nagai Kei his identity as an Ajin came big shock for him because of which he couldn’t decide what to do in a situation like this. Well i guess it’s common after all he was living his life to be a respectable human being and then he found out he was Ajin, no wonder he would panic. In a situation like this he ask his friend Kaito for help with whom he separated a long time ago. Kaito without any hesitation help him to escape but he (Nagai Kei) was caught by two thugs. The thugs wanted to hand him to the government so they can receive the price. Apparently if you captured Ajin you will receive a good amount of price as a reward from the government.
Kaito fought with those two guys and help Kei to escape, they both escape on bike, those two still follow Kai and Kaito but they are killed by another Ajin who’s after Kei for some reason. Although it does forces you to think that what are the aim of these Ajins who are after Kei what are they gonna do?
On the other hand we see some investigation of Kei’s personal life, and apparently i found out that his mother is as cold as ice or i think it’s greater than that. To find out your son is not human and all she give is “I didn’t think that my son was Ajin” well at first i thought she was just strict about education but i guess i really hate such parents who show no sympathy even for their kids.

The Ajin terrorists moves towards capturing Kei’s sister so they could meet with him but a lady officer goes to meet her first her name is “Izumi shimomura” during her investigation it becomes clear that when Kei was a kid he saw Ajin for the first time which was emerging from his body, Which gives us some hint that Ajin are somehow born but the reason is still unclear.
Anyways the during investigation One Ajin terrorist attacks everyone and tries to capture Kei’s sister but is stopped by Izumi shimomura, for moment at that time i became clueless because i thought “humans can’t do anything against Ajin without weapon then how the hell she stopped him?” well the answer was clear in few second the beautiful lady turned out to be Ajin and boy she put some serious fight in front of those terrorists but was unable to stop them from capturing Kei’s sister. Even though i must admit that the moment she fought with bad Ajin my excitement level broke it’s maximum limit as a result i screamed “Hell yeah!” well thanks to that i got scolded.
After capturing their target they called Nagai Kei and with a typical dialogue lured him to a meet point “Your sister is with us etc etc..” At that point the reputation of the Main character grew in my eyes because he was like “If they did anything, i won’t hesitate and i will kill’em!” he got his priorities straight and so he went to meet them.
On the other hand we see those terrorists give some baseless reasoning like we are not doing anything to you, we just want to save Nagai Kei. During that time the one thing i noticed is that one of the terrorists called “Satou” is really a cunning guy despite being of old age. But the reason for his going against the government seems unclear. At the meet point our Main character and terrorists meet together but apparently government employees were hiding there to capture Nagai Kei but our Main character thinks they are targeting Satou so he tries to save Satou and gets captured.
After getting captured he the government does some brutal experiment on him to truly check that he is immortal or not but Satou and his another terrorist friend break into the government authority so they can get Nagai Kei at his side but apparently Kei replies “Sorry to cause you all trouble” which turns the entire operation a failure. But in-between the entire thing that was happening Satou did mention one thing – “Japan’s Ajin Association will go through some big and major change.” Which indicated that we are going to see some of the Major revelations that may turn this series an epic one!
As a bonus we got something more that reveals or solves a big question regarding Ajin’s mystery and that is the answer to the question – ” What is Black Human?” whenever Ajin is born a Black human appears or emerges from him that same thing happened with Nagai Kei so what is exactly that thing? The black human that emerges through Ajin is called “IBM” also known as “Invisible black matter” and only Ajin can control them and see them, Humans doesn’t have the ability to see those things with their eyes also they are not formed through some kind of energy or internal energy in reality IBM is a substance, nothing more that that is revealed.
Opinion on the Ajin Anime so far
Ajin Anime is really good and of course this is the only Anime which can go head to head and toe to toe with Boku dake ga inai machi for the place of #1 Anime of 2016. Now the discovery in the last episode on IBM does give does give us some valid hints on the basis of which i can form my “Hypothesis” – Maybe IBM substance is developed accidentally because of some experiments and maybe the government is involved in the whole thing, Only higher officials are aware of this things and are trying their best to hide the matter.
The reason behind this hypothesis is quite simple during this 5 episode it became clear that Ajin are not born like human beings are born take Nagai Kei as an example his mother and sister is not Ajin. You may think that his father was (Nagai Kei don’t have father) but then Kei and his sister should both be Ajin but apparently Kei is the only one that have the ability of Ajin. Since it was shown in episode that when Kei saw Ajin or IBM that was emerging through him for the first time he was a kid and at that time he was playing with his sister, he was able to see the IBM but his sister was not able to see that. Which proves my theory on “Ajin is not born.” So if this theory is really true then there is only one valid reason – Some kind of human experiments were carried out because of which Ajins are born and there is no doubt that government is behind all these things!
So what do you think about the Ajin Anime and my opinion or theory on Ajin? You can give your opinion via comments below. But episodes of Anime so far has proved that Ajin anime is really a serious deal!
