The first film, titled Ajin: Shōdō, opened in Japan last November in 30 theaters in Japan for a two-week limited screening, after a screening during the Tokyo International Film Festival in late October.
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.
The TV anime series premiered on January 15, and goes deeper into the story and provides more details on the story's world. Netflix is streaming the new episodes in Japan three days after they air on Japanese television. Netflix is currently listing that it will premiere the series outside of Japan on April 12.
The manga's eighth volume will also bundle an anime on DVD when it ships on May 6.
