‘Ajin: Demi-Human’ Anime Begins Netflix Distribution

2 min read

Ajin TVI meant to post this yesterday but it got lost in the shuffle, but Netflix has put out the first Ajin: Demi-Human anime series on their service with the full series now available. The show has some really good options to it that remind us why they delay distribution a bit as it has Spanish, English, German and French audio with it in addition to the original Japanese. On the subtitle side we get French, English, Traditional Chinese, German and Spanish, which gives it good range as well.

The series was previously picked up by Netflix, who at the time stated, “This deal marks a milestone in how Anime is distributed on a global scale giving quicker and more efficient access to great Anime titles to Netflix members and fans around the world at the same time. AJIN: Demi-Human is the latest Anime title from Polygon Pictures to premiere exclusively on Netflix outside of Japanese broadcast with Knights of Sidonia premiering last summer to strong fanfare.”

The manga has been doing well in Japan since it launched in 2012 and it’s gotten some solid acclaim here since Vertical began publishing it. The timing works well for them too as the fifth volume of the manga came out in September, bringing them largely up to date. Crunchyroll is handling the digital presentation of the manga series, making it available to a large number of fans.

Plot concept: Based on the manga by Gamon Sakurai, AJIN: Demi-Human, published by KODANSHA Ltd., is about a young high-school student who is hit by a truck and dies only to discover that he is, in fact, demi-human, an “Ajin.” What he finds are dozens of others who are also Ajins; all of whom are being hunted and trying to survive.
