They arrive in silence and darkness. They descend from the skies. They have a hunger for human flesh. They are everywhere. They are parasites, alien creatures who must invade - and take control of - a human host to survive. And once they have infected their victims, they can assume any deadly form they choose: monsters with giant teeth, winged demons, creatures with blades for hands. But most have chosen to conceal their lethal purpose behind ordinary human faces. So no one knows their secret - except an ordinary high school student. Shinji is battling for control of his own body against an alien parasite, but can he find a way to warn humanity of the horrors to come?
Won the 1993 Kodansha Manga Award for General Manga and the Seiun Award for Best Comic of the Year in 1996.

This is good shit. Can't describe it much better than the other comments or the description, but it's fun and involving. The alien vs human relationships are very interesting, imo. I love it.
Just wish they'd finish scanlating it now.
Migi is funny
The little Alien that lives in his right hand is so cute . Makes you laugh too. Read this!
Initially, Kiseijuu was >really< interesting to read. The artwork is kinda stiff, but the story made up for that. I loved it. However, the last volume, which was abrupt & forced, disappointed me. I didn't feel satisfied at all. It ruined the whole series. =.='
This manga is awesome!! Full of blood and gore. The storyline is good too. U guys got to check this masterpiece fast
This is definately an awsome manga, but a word of caution-- it is graphic. It starts out almost cute, but very quickly gets rough. For squeamish people like me its torture because the story is good enough to keep me coming back, and the violence is enough to keep me up. Definately have lost sleep over this one. But if you can stomach some gore, and don't read it right before bed, truely captivating.
OHMYGOSH! I just realized that this series was also known as Parasyte! I read this series a couple of years ago and was very impressed by it. Very involving! Don't hesitate to check this out.
This manga is delicious, lots of blood, gore and aliens! My favourite manga!
