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. And 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. So 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?

Russian / Русский
Паразиты... Создания, живущие за счёт своего носителя, обладают совершенно нечеловеческой силой. Посланные небом должны проникать в мозг человека для полной власти над носителем. Но кому как повезёт... Именно эта неудача одного паразита спасает жизнь школьника Синдзи Идзуми, живущего обычной жизнью. Но и эта же неудача делает его носителем этого загадочного существа, обрекая Синдзи на постоянную борьбу за выживание с другими, более сильными паразитами. Что же будет делать Синдзи, если его существование с паразитом в его организме ставит на кон жизни и его близких?

    Awesome manga. For everyone who enjoyed it, I recommend John Carpenter's "The Thing," which is the author's obvious inspiration for this. That and, I imagine, the book "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep," given the angle about sociopaths and how to deal with them as a human capable of empathy.

    The ending feel a little weak but great series overall.
    I'm surprised it got an anime after so long. And the anime is so good too. Glad it got the recognition it deserved.
