Kemono Jihen is an actiony-horror show from what I've gathered. The main cast works at a detective agency that deals with supernatural phenomena. I've enjoyed what I've seen so far going in blind. I've never seen anything else by the studio (Ajia-Do) but the action scenes have been effective with some nice establishing shots.

Cast:



Kabane: Main character. Smelly.



Inugami: Babysitter.



Shiki: Pizza aficionado. Does not like loaning out clothes.



Akira: Instagram star. Does not like bugs.



Kon: A good girl

I've been pretty happy with this as an adaption so far. I thought ep 2 did a good job with Shiki's personality, letting him come across as kind of a prickly butthead but not really a mean brat.

The manga is incredibly good and I'd say it, Jujutsu Kaisen and Chainsaw Man are/were currently the top three urban fantasy shows, I'm really looking forward to it.

Any anime even indirectly engaging in Pizza Evangelism is destined for Great Things~

Strong first couple eps, not diminished next to anything else this bizarre season.

I like my coffee with cream and lsd.


Kabane's introduction to pizza is what initially sold me on the manga because Shiki was so dumbfounded he forgot to be mean

Kon and Kabane learning what words mean

has anyone seen how many episodes this is actually going to have? last time I checked the mal page for it they just had ? instead of a number (and I'm just getting a 504 now so I can't tell if that ever changed)

Kabane is a surprisingly fun character. I love how he can't feel pain comes up in fun ways like how he got covered in the corpse bugs and his reaction was "I can't see" or the leech gag this episode.

Anime Chart and at least one other website claim 12 episodes, but I'm also seeing a couple of other ?'s.

As for the show itself I'm rather enjoying it. So far it feels intimate and small in a way that makes it stands out. It's simultaneously unassuming yet very confident, and I'm already a big fan of all the characters so far. Kabane is way more compelling in practice than he is on paper and the dynamics going on with the rest the cast all feel pretty refreshing and interesting.

I think I'd like to take that vampire and throw him at a wall of pencils. Or better yet, force him to play nothing but "Ride To Hell: Retribution" until he pulls his own head off.

Meanwhile, now we've met the kid in the short pants. Not sure how I feel about him yet.

My immediate smart rear end response when he said "you know how to kill a vampire, right?" was "smash his modem" which amounts to about the same thing.

Kon remains very good.

It's real funny the only reason Inugami keeps lovely Gamer Vampire around is to have someone maintain his website.

Kon...

Although I didn't realize a few days passed.

Yeah it makes me wonder why Inugami interfered the first time, not enough proof? To protect Shiki? Like Inari is the villian, but I think she had the right idea to want to take care of this mix of Hojo from FF7 and Tucker from FMA.

The uncle needs to be alive to resolve Shiki's issues. Once he's finally spilled the beans, Then he can be disposed of

Pretty good episode

Had a feeling the forest was full of Shiki's siblings didn't think their only words they would know would be a mom's love for her son, that's horrifying. Kinda sucks the rest of the fight got resolved off screen even though I can understand why they did it.

I love that Kabane's meaning of love is forever skewed by a dude who fell in love with a cat.

The conversation he had with Kon in the park is so endearing, these two trying to process emotions they don't have single understanding of. I'm glad it seems like Kon is gonna pop up more.

Kim and Kabane with no supervision is great because you can just watch them completely go in the wrong direction with interpreting things and no brakes on the ride
