Animenewsnetwork - Whew! Alright, we're back on track. While this episode was still somewhat hampered by this arc's tendency to over-tell to the point of absurdity, and was reflective of other problems of execution and earlier narrative issues besides, it was still a far cry from last week's fiasco. We started off with Hirakawa's last stand, before jumping to Gotou, who ended the stakeout arc by promising to kill Shinichi. From there, the episode's last third slowed things down by returning the focus to Shinichi's personal feelings. Things could still go wrong, but I have a feeling the worst is now behind us - with the police arc concluded, it's looking like Parasyte will finish by focusing on a newly driven Shinichi facing an uncertain world.
