Hello guys it’s meowth900 recapping another episode of Parasyte The Maxim. Honestly I thought it had the week off because of the holiday but I guess I was wrong. Oh well. Least there’s only two more weeks left of it so let’s stay happy shall we?
So Shinichi gathers up his courage and tries to fight Gotou again aiming to kill him and save the day. Somehow Migi can drive a car.
I mean it mastered English in a day so driving somehow came naturally to it. Good thing there weren’t any cops around to pull Shinichi over. He could have gotten a Driving Under the Parasite or DUP. Huh? Huuuuuuuh?
Ok ok jeez Shinichi I’m sorry.
Well anyways then they go into a big scary dark forest trying to hunt down Gotou. Migi gets scared and asks Shinichi if they could strategize. Shinichi gets pissed off at Migi’s procrastination, and I don’t blame him there. I hate those guys. Gotou overhears their bickering and starts attacking them.
Shinichi and Migi are clearly outnumbered in terms of strength, but Migi decides to sacrifice itself in order to save Shinchi from Gotou’s wrath. Migi dies a noble death, while feeling sad and alone but hey it lived a good life.
Shinichi gets taken in my a sweet old grandma named Mitsuyo.
Aiming to recover and recuperate his thoughts he decides to stay there for as long as he wants to. A few nights later Shinichi has another dream about a monster.
But it is a little itty bitty monster with three horse shaped legs. Shinichi asks what is he looking for. The little monster then walks away. Shinichi wakes up and sees a tiny eyeball on his stubby arm. Migi is still alive but just barely.
I know, up close it really looks like a bellybutton eyeball.
While Shinichi is hanging out he notices that many people are being attacked when they go into the forest. Shinichi learns that Gotou is still out there, killing and eating people. He realizes he has to go out and stop them. He also gets told off by Mitsuyo which is awesome. She really laid down the business on Shinichi
Later that night Shinichi asks for a weapon and got some reason he grabs something really rusty. The episode ends with Shinichi going into the forest, rusty blade in hand ready to kill Gotou. With or without Migi.
