Any of you watching this? Fairly new anime (6 eps at time of writing)

BASIC plot is a guy wakes up to find out his hand has been taken over by an alien parasite

Sounds a lot like an older manga (I think early 90s) that had the same premise as this series. I'm surprised they're doing an anime based off of the manga after all these years.

I guess it fits, even though its a tad simplistic >.<

Watched the first two eps and I like it! The music is cool, even if it reminds me of dubstep. The main characters rage-mode/death-stares are awesome scenes. Going to keep watching this one!

I just finished this tonight without knowing that it ended about 3-4 days ago. The series was actually pretty interesting, hopefully they start releasing some upcoming series that are as good as this one.

Yeah, it was an ancient manga that I suppose wasn't able to be made into an anime until recently. I enjoyed the anime, I did; but I personally was let down by not only the direction the show went, but also the lack of a satisfying conclusion. For the longest time, the show built this hype around Shinchi and his abilities; I really thought there was going to be this awesome final battle that displayed how bad-ass he was - in the end we didn't get anything close to this.

*spoillers?* Take, for example, the final episode; I can't remember his name, but that crazy guy held a knife to Shinichi's woman, and Shinchi finally admitted he wasn't just a regular person - right here is where I thought they were going to make him use his super speed (something made apparent earlier) to save the girl. They didn't, though; they made Migi save her, and then the show just ends, and I felt really underwhelmed by it all. I mean, the final monologue was nice and only a fool would say otherwise, but I still can't feel the conclusion could have been far grander than what it turned out to be, even if it risked straying a bit from the original manga ending.

YOU ALREADY SAID THAT FOOL! I remember picking up the manga and reading a couple chapters a few years ago, it was a pretty interesting read.

I'm still pretty surprised that they actually made an animated series for it after 20 years. No complaints from me about it though, it was a pretty good series.
