This was a wonderful conclusion to the genre. Shinichi who finally realized his role as the bridge between species has been freed. Migi who relied on his humanity to understand of what it is to be human gave his host that drive to continue on without him. Between his new found freedom was also the enforcer who only wanted his people to rule our world without humans to bar their way. Except the only person who started to feel any emotion was his commander Takiyama. Birthing a son using a human body gave Takiyama the notion that not all of their instincts contained the lust to kill.

Experimenting on her own so that she could realize just how important life really is also freed her from the confines of their brutal instincts. Knowing full well that she, and her own people could break the bonds of their past, and move on co-existing within society meant more to her, than her own life and she proved it by sacrificing her own life to protect her child.

This was a great ending to one of the most successful series to come out of Japan. Parasyte created a new avenue to the human condition that not all creatures in this vast universe succumbs to basic instincts to exist although some in this film stuck to that emotional baggage not being able to let go of the past. Evolution always wins no matter how technologically advanced or how rudimentary flawed the race is. Shinichi along with Migi helped stop the needless violence, and carnage Takiyama sought for. Wonderful music, action, effects, and talented actors all around.

The plot, theme and flavor left me quite satisfied as far as the tale unfolded just like the television series did in anime form. It was a fantastic adaptation from beginning with the first movie to the second and opened up to a possible third instalment. Maybe. For now any fan who watches the series will enjoy these films. You will not be disappointed. Highly recommended for anime fans alike. Not advisable for those under the age of seventeen.
