I am not a regular watcher of horror anime. But once in a while, I take a break from the routine stuff to squeeze few of them in. I watched ‘Parasyte’ on one such occasion. It is a great example of why anime is one of the best things that happened on the TV. The series was released in 2014 even though the manga is around three decades old. I recommend it to everyone who loves anime.
Surprisingly though, there are many people who haven’t watched it. Let’s revise the plot for them. One fine day, aliens known as ‘Parasytes’ attack Earth. They attach themselves to humans and control their brain. But Izumi Shinichi is fortunate enough to evade the full consequence. The parasite is unable to attack his brain and instead attaches itself to his hand. Now, both of them must help each other for survival. This list is for all those who have watched the series and want more. If you haven’t watched the series don’t worry you can check them out once you are done. Here is the list of anime similar to Parasyte that are our recommendations. You can watch some of these anime like Parasyte on Netflix or Amazon Prime or Hulu.
1. Shinsekai Yori (2012):
This anime follows the life of Saki Watanabe a 12-year old psychic. She is joined by her companions Maria Akizuki, Mamoru Itou, Shun Aonuma, and Satoru Asahina at Sage Academy. This is the school for people who have awakened their psychic power. But she feels uneasy as she always thinks what will happen to those who aren’t able to awaken their power. Soon she and her friends start getting mixed up in the mystery of Tainted cats who might be the reason behind missing children.
