Hello guys it’s meowth900 here recapping the latest episode of Parasyte The Maxim
Our episode begins with Hirokawa’s gang attempting to kill Kuramori by making the office explode. They also kill his wife and child. Wow is that an American way to get revenge or what?
During that event we go back to Shinichi and Migi who met this man with three parasites in his body. His name is Miki. Migi and Miki this will get confusing real fast. Anyways they’re both fighting him aiming to kill all three parasites. The two of them manage to kill Miki off but a surprisingly familiar face comes back. Remember crazy old Gotou who killed those yakuza guys a couple episodes ago? Turns out he’s in that body too.
Shinichi and Migi realize that Gotou and the late Miki are just two named separate parasites inside one body. Realizing that they cannot win right now at their current level of strength they shake off Gotou and flee. For now…
Going back to Kuramori who’s all distraught and filled with emotions he decides based on Shinichi’s recommendation to seek out Hirama. He’s that older looking guy with the glasses who’s an investigator looking into the whole parasitic situation. Hirama agrees to help out Kuramori only if he works with the police. Kuramori agrees briefly but seeing as to how slowly the investigation is going he quits working with them and decides to get revenge on his own. He begins by stalking Tamura. That’s not a good idea man. Also what the heck is with all this stalking?
Meanwhile Shinichi’s watching the news, and sees that the parasites have now locked their sites on Kuramori. Shinichi remembering what happened to his mother gets worried and calls his father telling him to leave town. Also remember that nightmare thing with skeletal Ryuk talking like Migi? Well Shinichi has been having those nightmares a lot where he’s talking to that thing lately.
Me too buddy.
Outside those storylines we go back to Tamura, and she’s expressing disgust and irritation at her comrades underestimation of human nature. She’s also breastfeeding a baby which I guess a lot of people made a big deal of on Twitter because “ermehgurd boobs on TV” but anyways yes she’s getting interested in the baby she had. Which to be honest is a little weird considering a couple or more episodes ago she used it as a shield. Kusano (one of Tamura’s comrades) however, sees this as an incoming threat.
The episode ends with Kusano and two other unnamed parasites confronting Tamura in an attempt to kill her and her baby.
