AJIN: Demi-Human

AJIN: Demi-Human

Kei Nagai became a medical intern to save his sick little sister. One day, he dies in an accident, but he comes back to life right away. He realizes he's a demi-human, “Ajin”, and his life collapses. Captured by the government, he becomes a guinea pig for inhumane experiments. Suddenly, Sato - a vicious Ajin terrorist fighting against all mankind - comes to his rescue. Torn about his fate, Kei cannot bring himself to agree with Sato's vision for Ajin's future. Soon, Sato's shocking game against the government starts. Mankind clashing against Ajin, Ajin clashing against Ajin. The endless battle between two men who will not die. How are Ajins going to live their eternal life?
