About Parasyte Manga Volume 1

Parasyte volume 1 features story and art by Hitoshi Iwaaki.

They arrive in silence and darkness. They descend from the skies. They have a hunger for human flesh. They are everywhere. They are parasites, alien creatures who must invade - and take control of - a human host to survive.

Once they have infected their victims, they can assume any deadly form they choose: monsters with giant teeth, winged demons, creatures with blades for hands. But most have chosen to conceal their lethal purpose behind ordinary human faces. No one knows their secret - except an ordinary high school student. Shin is battling for control of his own body against an alien parasite, but can he find a way to warn humanity of the horrors to come?

Parasytes taking over!

by -

I enjoyed the story and how Shinichi reacted to his situation and each night I read the book till I finished it.

Book one introduces you to Shinichi who finds himself stuck keeping a secret of Migi a parasyte in his hand from his family and friends.

If you seen all the parasyte anime it's well worth reading the manga as it does have some differences between the two.

5 star rating out of 5



I remember this being my first manga. I still remember how exited i was to got from volume 1 to 2. I also though the manga was way better then the anime, though i'm glad it took so long for them to make the anime, next we need a Pysren anime.

Do it!

by -

Personally I preferred the show, but the manga is still a solid 10/10 (which tells you how I felt about the show). Whether in terms of thematic complexity, engaging plot, adrenaline-pumping action, or (sometimes dark) humor, this is a masterpiece.

The translation notes and author interviews throughout add a lot to the series as well.

The cover artwork feels a bit off the way the eyes are drawn on, but depending on your taste that might be a plus.
