About Parasyte -the maxim-
One day, ordinary high school student Izumi Shinichi is attacked out of the blue by a 'parasite'. Although he narrowly avoided having his brain taken over by the parasite, it managed to invade Shinichi's right hand and assimilate with him. Thus begins a strange coexistence between parasite and human. The parasite names itself "Migi" as it has invaded Shinichi's right hand. While Shinichi is initially troubled by his inability to tell anyone else the truth, some semblance of friendship gradually develops between him and Migi.
However, other parasites also begin to appear in front of Shinichi and Migi, and humans are being killed one after another even as some parasites are killed by the humans. Shinichi’s schoolmate Satomi also comes under danger.
Amidst these developments, under the guise of a high school teacher, a parasite by the name of Tamiya Ryoko appears. She heralds a new form of thought in the parasites, which have begun to consider various values.
"What is the reason for our existence?"
The parasites are said to have been born in order to weed out the human beings who have continually been destroying the Earth. Human beings must kill these parasites in order to survive.
"Who should be the ones to survive?"
Faced with these shifting values, Shinichi and Migi commit themselves to the battle against the parasites to protect Earth as well as their loved ones.
