Here is my first anime recommendation. As part of this recommendation I will give MyAnimeList’s synopsis, two reasons why I recommend it, a scene or two that I enjoyed (SPOILERS!!) , then a Crunchyroll or other streaming service link, and finally something you can buy related to the anime.
MYANIMELIST.COM BREIF SYNOPSIS:
- Ichirou Inuyashiki is a 58-year-old family man who is going through a difficult time in his life
- Though his frequent back problems are painful, nothing hurts quite as much as the indifference and distaste that his wife and children have for him
- However, his life takes a turn for the worse when a follow-up physical examination reveals that Ichirou has stomach cancer and only three months to live
- Running off into a nearby field, Ichirou embraces his dog and weeps—until he notices a strange figure standing before him
- Suddenly, a bright light appears and Ichirou is enveloped by smoke and dust. When he comes to, he discovers something is amiss—he has been reborn as a mechanized weapon wearing the skin of his former self
- Initially shocked, the compassionate Ichirou immediately uses his newfound powers to save a life, an act of kindness that fills him with happiness and newfound hope
- Who was the mysterious figure at the site of the explosion, and are they as kind as Ichirou when it comes to using this dangerous gift
WHY I RECOMMEND
- It is a short anime stopping at 11 episodes. That means you can finish it in a day very easily.
- This anime shows how differently these two different people handle a bad situation they are dealt with. It also shows how a person’s environment can shape them for better or for worse.
SCENE I REALLY ENJOYED (SPOLIER AHEAD!!!!)
So in this scene the character know as Hiro Shishigami walks into a strangers house and murders the mother in the kitchen. He then moves the the bathroom where the father is giving his baby son a bath. Hiro then has a conversation with the father that ends in the father to at least spare his baby son, but no surprise he doesn’t, so he kills the dad which makes his dead body fall on the baby which ends up drowning the little kid.
Then the high school daughter comes home and finds her mother’s murdered body in the kitchen. A few seconds later Hiro shows up and confronts the girl. He ends up asking her about the manga One Piece which ends up in a small conversation all while she is still scarred and crying from seeing her dead mother. She then asks Hiro if he at least sparred her baby brother and with the most emotionless expression and voice he says no. She tries to run, but ends up dead.
Terrifying scene and actually the scene that got me to watch this anime.
