Ajin lives matter too
16 April 2018 | by phanthingaSee all my reviews

The concept of Ajin is pretty much like Tokyo Ghoul but instead of Ghoul we get a new kind of supernatural being with healing factor and can summon their own personal bodyguar Ajin in form of a human shape shifting smoke.The movie is very hollow with not enough development for me to care about any of the characters so the only thing that keep me interested in the story is the action and most of the time it above average when it involving gun fight.They really hold back with the blood and gore in Ajin cause some of the scene clearly begging for a bloody mess
