Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kept my on my toes I haven't read the manga yet but I watched the anime and I can tell you that bit definbitely kept me on my toes. It's one of these rare mangas where you cannot predict what will happen next, it's really full of twists and keep you on edge all the time. I usually side with the main characters on mangas but Satou, the villain in this series us a really charismatic character that made more an impact on me than the main character itself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Gripping and Fast-paced Tale This manga was absolutely amazing!! I've bought every available volume so far and do not regret my purchases. Just a warning though, Ajin is what I'd classify as a horror/thriller (sometimes more thriller than horror), so if you're not a fan of the occasional out-of-no-where gritty scenes and spine-tingling ghostly creatures then this isn't for you. This is a mystery, action, drama, and foremost a psychological thriller series after all.
