Ajin - Demi-Human TV Anime to Have 13 Episodes

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins

Netflix announced last Tuesday that the television anime adaptation of Gamon Sakurai's Ajin - Demi-Human manga will have 13 episodes.

The television anime will premiere in January on the MBS, TBS, and CBC stations in Japan. Netflix will stream the new episodes in Japan three days after they air on Japanese television. Netflix will then premiere all the episodes at once in "regions Netflix currently operates outside of Japan" in mid-2016.

The series will go deeper into the story and provide more details on the story's world.

The television anime shares the same staff and cast with the upcoming anime film trilogy (pictured at right). The first film, subtitled "Shōdō" (Impulse), will open in Japan in November.

In the manga's story, an immortal first appeared on an African battlefield 17 years ago. Later, rare, unknown new immortal lifeforms began appearing among humans, and they became known as "Ajin" (demi-humans). Just before summer vacation, a Japanese high school student named Kei Nagai is instantly killed in a traffic accident on his way home from school. However, he is revived, and a price is placed on his head. Thus begins a boy's life on the run from all of humankind.
