Ajin Season 3 Story
Supernatural animes are widely popular sometimes they deal with supernatural beings, sometimes supernatural occurrences, sometimes supernatural worlds, etc. In the series Ajin, we get to see another such world filled with supernatural aspects. However, this anime is much closer to reality than just another supernatural fantasy anime. The world of the series is a normal one, however, what makes it different is the existence of Ajins. Ajins are human beings who can’t die or to simply put they are immortal. They appeared somewhere around in African subcontinent about 17 years before the main story of the series kicked off.
These Ajins appear as normal human beings only but only they have special abilities and are immortal. However, everything about their existence is a mystery. No one over the past 17 years was able to solve the mystery that surrounds Ajin. Questions like how they appeared? , why do they appear? , who are they exactly? , do they have any weakness at all? , where did they come from? all remained unanswered. Being an Ajin seems exhilarating and all but the reality couldn’t be further from the truth. Human beings have the primitive tendency to fear the unknown, they don’t even try to understand most of the time and refuse to get out of their shell.
And humans of this world aren’t any different since they also succumbed to this fear of the unknown. When these Ajins appeared out of nowhere, people were petrified of them since nothing about them was known. It gradually became extremely difficult for the Ajins to live in the world of humans peacefully under the banner of unity since the mystery surrounding them scared the normal humans. Humans thought that these Ajins might just misuse their power for evil purposes. They thought Ajins might wreak havoc and might perceive humans as inferior beings which might create a hostile situation. So humans just started to look down upon Ajins as evil beings and labeled them as a threat to humanity. It is impossible for Ajins to get destroyed, this ability of them marked as a greater threat.
So from them to modern times if an Ajin by any chance is seen or discovered in society they get immediately arrested even if they just stay quiet without bothering anyone. Now cut to the modern day we get to follow the life of one individual named Kei Nagai as the main story kicks off. Kei is a high schooler who is determined to become a doctor. He studies hard and all to achieve his lifelong dream. However, Kei is not the usual average bright student, he doesn’t pay much attention to school and most of the time he seems like he is lost in his thoughts. Most of the time he doesn’t pay to anything whether it’s his school, his home and family, what is happening around him.
So it is pretty natural for him to only have the slightest knowledge about the conditions of the world and the Ajins. Students from a very young age are taught that Ajins are evil creatures meant to cause harm to other humans. But since Kei didn’t pay attention to school he wasn’t much bothered about Ajins to begin with. However, his life turned upside down when he barely survives an incident that might just make him meet his demise but this incident did something far more drastic to him. He was reborn again in the same world but as an Ajin. This event marked the starting point of his life filled with dread and anxiety. It was only Kei who was absolutely confused regarding what he is supposed to do against the entire world. The series then follows the life of Kei as he tries his best to survive as an Ajin while getting involved with other Ajins and the complexities surrounding them.
