I love that Shinichi Izumi-kun’s dad is more invested in the news about the next fantasy writer award winner being handed out than the 84th murder. To be fair, I can see why murder news in this quantity would get boring but, as a ‘Murican, I can’t imagine 84 serial murders achieving anything less than total, insane, frothy mouth panic in all my fellow countrymen! (and ladies)
However Izumi-kun has more specific worries, in that he may be the only human to know the true nature of the murders. Worse, he may be the only human in a position to stop them… and he’s not in a position to stop them, what with being a teenager and all!
Worse worse, at least at first, is Izumi’s new school reality: his new math teacher Tamiya-sensei is clearly another Parasyte. This puts him on total edge, as she is also his love interest’s homeroom teacher and bloody antics could soon be afoot!
Fortunately, at least for now, Tamiya intends to blend into human society and maintain her hosts place in society. Migi thinks very highly of her for this. Rather, he thinks she is very skilled, to be able to control her host and maintain the status quo so effectively.
Unfortunately, A-san, a male Parasyte who seems incapable (or unwilling?) of even the most basic human fitting in is not far off. According to Tamiya, she and A-san had sex and now she is pregnant with a completely normal human child.
This is not to say A-san is targeting her. Quite the opposite! He finds Migi and Izumi-kun dangerous and, as a base-animal, he quickly loses it and launches an attack on the school.
A-san is not even his name. He doesn’t have one, since he see’s no point in even trying to blend into Human society…
After a lengthy, brutal, but low body count attack, A-san corners Migi and Izumi-kun on an upper floor. Except they aren’t exactly cornered. They’ve identified that the ture difference between them and him is not anything highfalutin.
It’s simply that they are two beings and that, as two beings, they can fight together, overwhelming a single one, no matter how strong he is alone.
We’ll just have to wait until next week to put that to the test…
Kiseijuu: Sei no Kakuritsu gave us another solid piece of creep-fest this week. Migi is, as always, equal parts disgusting to look at and super cute. Not only that, his self centered detached reasoning reminds me of my old PE teacher. (talk about nightmares layered on nightmares!)
A whole new character will obviously outlive A-san here and now we have so many questions we didn’t even know we had to ask as of last week. Will Parasyte-sensei continue to observe Izumi-kun or attack him when the time is right? Does she really have an urge to blend in? Will she eat her own baby? Will she even bring it to term?
I can’t wait to find out!
