Parasyte The Maxim 19

One more week til spring break and I can make these things without worrying about repercussions for one week. Hey guys it’s meowth900 here with another recap for Parasyte The Maxim.

Our episode begins with Uragami showing some odd behavior patterns when staring at Shinichi. He then begins having a flashback because it’s an anime. Before Uragami got arrested by the police he use to kill people, eat them, and rape them on some occasions. Ah, well with sword art online not here some anime has to go there am I right?

What? I’m just making fun of how it happened twice.

Uragami suspects that his parasitic behaviors are making him identify other parasites.One day he saw a real parasite eating a dead human, and then the police arrested him thinking he did it. After the flashbacks Uragami tells the police that Shinichi is a regular old human being.

After the investigation Hirama explains to Shinichi what is happening with that unnamed baby that Tamura left on Earth.  Apparently the baby is going under testing to make sure its human. After the baby is done being tested the baby will be placed in a foster home.

No not that one I mean the boring kind with boring old children.

Hirama thinks of using Uragami to identify parasites but Yamagishi the commander of the ground forces is against this idea.

On the other side Gotou and Hirokawa discuss that Tamura, and Kusano are missing and think that the government is actually a bigger threat than they thought.


The next day Shinichi goes back to school and wants to walk home with “You Are Shinichi Izumi Aren’t You?” Murano. Unfortunately Hirama interrupts them asking for Shinichi’s help in killing the parasites. Murano gets pissed at Shinichi for being involved with them but who cares what she thinks because she’s a woman and this is the 80s. Yamagishi asks Shinichi what specific firepower could be equal to the power of the parasites and Hirama suggests flamethrowers.

I quite like this idea actually.

The operation begins the next morning and the base of operations gets stormed. Shinichi and Uragami are bought in to sniff out some parasites in the evacuating workers but both of them are unsuccessful because they can’t get close enough to see their faces.

The episode ends with a female parasite being detected in those X – Ray machines set up by the military.

COUNTDOWN: 20 Days Remaining

In case you don’t know or have forgotten Funimation is losing the rights for Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood and Fullmetal Alchemist The Conquerror of Shamballa. If you have not watched either of these you better get started because at the end of March both of them stop streaming on Funimation’s website.You may be out of luck if you want to buy the shiny discs of Brotherhood because they are climbing higher in price on Amazon.You can watch Shamballa on Hulu and Netflix doesn’t have an expiration date for Brotherhood but I wouldn’t take my chances. Netflix also doesn’t have all 64 episodes (it only goes up to 52) but Hulu has the last 12 episodes.
