The official website for the television anime adaptation of Gamon Sakurai's Ajin - Demi-Human manga revealed on Thursday that voice actor Mamoru Miyano will perform the ending theme song for the series. Miyano is also starring in the series as Kei Nagai.

The Ajin television anime shares the same staff and cast with the upcoming anime film trilogy. The first film, subtitled "Shōdō" (Impulse), will open in Japan on November 27 in 30 theaters in Japan for a two-week limited screening.
The TV anime series will go deeper into the story and provide more details on the story's world.
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.
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.
