Anime Review Roundup
Ajin: Demi-Human Season 2 - Collector's Edition is really quite exceptional. I know I said that about the first season, but it bears repeating, if like me you tend to metaphorically judge books by their covers. The first season set up quite a complex world of Ajin, so-called immortals that can project their power as a dark, humanoid cloud of energy visible only to other Ajin. But in this world, they are discriminated against and feared. I would have thought that such a complex story would be impossible to resolve in just thirteen more episodes, but Season 2 manages to plot an unexpected, but really quite engaging way through its narrative minefield, with only one or two minor missteps along the way. Click on the review to see what I mean.

Manga Entertainment released Chaos;Head on DVD way back in 2012. It’s a sign of its lack of quality that you can still buy it today, when most other anime of that vintage have been deleted and gone out of print. Here’s my review. Funimation released the show on Blu-ray in the US, and apparently it works on Region B players, if you’re a glutton for punishment!
All the Anime released Ajin: Demi-Human Season 2 - Collector's Edition on Blu-ray and standard edition DVD back in May 2020.
