Review: Inuyashiki

I wrote the bulk of this review in May 2018. This 11-episode anime came out in October 2017.

Synopsis: One night at a park, an explosion takes place and two people are killed. The extraterrestrial beings that caused the explosion repair their bodies but turn the two people into robots. The two people are Inuyashiki, a 50-year old man who looks older than his age, and a teenager named Hiro. With their robot bodies, they are able to do a lot of things that humans cannot do, such as cure diseases, heal people, kill people, control technology, and fly into space. Inuyashiki uses his powers to do good and heal people. Hiro, on the other hand, uses his powers to mass murder people.

It’s very interesting to see how people react differently to new powers. I was interested from the start, but I wasn’t hooked until I watched episode 6. That’s when things really picked up. The ending made sense to me because I’m not sure how they would end it otherwise. It was kind of expected. The last episode showed President Trump and an interesting depiction of him.

This is probably one of my favourite anime. You don’t normally see a super cool, older man as the protagonist in anime. Hiro loves One Piece, and Trump is in anime. The opening theme is one of my favourite songs. It’s by MAN WITH A MISSION.
