About Ajin: Demi-Human
The “Ajin” are a new type of immortal human, being pursued by agents of the Japanese government. The battle between the two forces is told through realistic action and accurate psychological descriptions in the action-survival-suspense smash hit Ajin: Demi-Human (Gamon Sakurai, serialized in Kodansha’s good! Afternoon), and has now been adapted as an anime series!
The TV series consists of season one, which aired in January 2016, and season two, which aired in October of the same year, alongside the animated feature trilogy (released in November 2015, May 2016, and September 2016).
Story: High-schooler Kei Nagai is mysteriously resurrected after being hit by a truck and killed. Thus he discovers he is the third of a new species of immortal “demi-humans”, or “Ajin”, to be discovered so far in the country. The police and Ajin Control Commission launch a massive manhunt to bring in this new specimen.
Meanwhile, the second known Ajin has escaped government custody with the
help of an accomplice and remains on the run. These fugitives have also
begun planning a campaign of terrorism to exact their revenge on humanity.
