Parasyte -the maxim-

I'll be honest, i'm not the biggest fan of Horror or sci-fi
When it comes to horror i just find it kinda dull and predictable and the endings are rarely worth it.

That is kinda my issue with Parasyte.
It's a great show, interesting concept, lovely art.
but how do you end an alien invasion story in a way that leaves you feeling like the journey was worth it.
honestly i think ending it on episode 23 would have been better.
Episode 24 was just a little too Pseudo-Philosophical... lets have these sprawling monologues over what it all means and then not really do anything with it.

However other then the ending i really enjoyed the show. it was an interesting world with interesting rules and overall gripping and suspenseful.
Not really scary... other then parasytes randomly hitting the earth and taking over human hosts is kinda scary... but past that... *shrugs* maybe other things were scary? Horror has never made me scared... it makes me laugh (sci fi on the other hand...)

but yeah.... i found up until last week i was really enjoying where it was going but that ending was just such a letdown... not that i know what i was expecting.
Closure maybe?
consequence perhaps?
I don't know.

SO anyways....

The good:
Animation was lovely and Fluid, not my fav mad house anime of the season but we can get to that on friday.
Music was pretty good though some songs started to repeat a bit too much for my taste.
The Parasytes are fairly interesting and shinichi never feels too powerful (well... ok sometimes he does but you still fear for him)

The not so good:
Preachy, i know i complained about the final episode a lot but many of the monologues just get preachy without actually saying anything (and anything that is said is pretty common sense)

The bad:
Episode 23 should have been then final episode OR there needed to be some closure about those infected with Parasytes.
the last act feels a bit rushed, it's almost like suddenly the whole world is after him when it's not.

so yeah... i don't think anything finishes tomorrow,
Death Parade on Friday
Aldnoah zero on Saturday
Kuroko.... i may drop it on sunday... we will see.
otherwise not sure how many more of these i have left.

Other shows from this season:
Bonjour Sweet Love Patisserie
Your Lie in April - another stellar (but very sad) show 
Yona of the Dawn 
Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE!  Silly title but great show.
