    No, a lot of the more brutal violence happened off-screen in the anime. Watch it again and count how many times a victim will back up in fear from a parasyte and move behind a large object like a wall; as the parasyte sends a tentacle to kill the person behind the object, blood will spray out from the side of the wall. That happened numerous times in the anime, probably because the manga had no qualms about showing people being utterly mutilated or dissected. The parasyte transformations were also less intimidating and threatening (although that could just be because anime can't translate fear and danger the same way manga can)

    Among many other scenes, Shinichi also discovered the parasyte's powers by saving a kid from getting hit by a car; that did not happen in the manga. The chapter in the first parasyte manga from the perspective of an escaped lion was missing from the anime. The scene where Migi turns Shinichi's hand into a giant penis while he is on a date at McDonalds was absent (I know that's nudity, but scenario is still considered character development). A scene with a parasyte man who defends a human woman from a bunch of thugs was absent. Scenes showing Hirokawa and Gotou casually conversating were absent. Scenes showing Kana and Mitsuo harassing other teens are absent. Many scenes showing Shinichi and Migi's character development (with themselves and also with other characters) were also absent from the anime. I can literally go on and on, I've been reading the Parasyte manga for nearly a decade and while I thought the anime was okay, it was ultimately a poor adaptation of one of the most unique mangas ever created.

    How many times have you even read the manga?

    I read it immediately after finishing the anime and didn't notice anything meaningful changed.

    You get a different grasp of the anime if you've read the manga before it. And it's likely you won't consider specific scenes important because they weren't in the anime, which you watched first.
    It's more about personal approach than what is absolutely required for the story.

    The anime isn't bad but it definitely has a different feel to it (mainly because of the lack of gore/violence), and there was some scenes I personally enjoyed (no matter if they weren't important to the plot) that had been removed from the anime. Even as such, it's still better than most adaptations of any manga series.

    The violence & gore was extremely toned down in the anime to make it suitable for japanese tv stations

    So far it's been great. It's kind of like trash such as SNK and Bleach having a baby that's way better than them. Trash, but better trash.
    One day everyone above the age of 13 dies from some virus and vampires take over, treating the kids who survived as cattle.
    The characters are definitely stereotypical and the story isn't incredibly original but nonetheless, it's still well built imo and I'm intrigued to watch the rest of the series soon.
    I also like the style, but it seems the animation studio didn't work as hard on this as they did with SNK.

    I do like the idea of kids getting it. All animes can benefit from this.

    Sadly it's not nearly as "brutal" as it could be :(
    I'd have enjoyed more realistic approach towards the characters.

    Amanchu is amazing. I read it back when it was a manga, but seeing it in anime form is so beautiful. The music is so sweet too.
