Parasyte The Maxim Ep.20 – “Crime and Punishment” (Summary)

The operation to exterminate the parasites continues as the police officers successfully identify the first target among the evacuees. Upon hearing the gunshots, Hirakawa and his aides instantly come up with a plan knowing that the squads are deployed to extinguish them. The politician and some of his subordinates inform the officers that they need to go to the second floor of the building to notify the civilians left in the area. That moment, the parasites who are already escorted outside cause a commotion that leads to the destruction of the sensing system that Yamagishi uses. Hirama persuades him to take Uragami as a substitute for the broken sensory equipment. The chaos continues inside the building as other parasites suddenly reveal themselves, leaving the officers agitated as they shoot anyone that seems suspicious regardless of their real identities.

Hirakawa and his members take that opportunity to go to the second floor. Yamagishi joins the other police officers in slaughtering the monsters while he gives them the commands. Each squad is designated to different locations as he instructs Uragami to assist the others in pointing out the parasites. During the operation, Yamagishi somehow gets a grasp on how to identify the enemies as well, and he orders his team to shoot anyone they see. The assault continues until Uragami spots Goto, and the former immediately runs away, frightened upon realizing what kind of monster he is.

Five officers follow Goto as he leads them to a room and gives them two minutes to shoot him. However, even when his whole body is covered with bullet holes, no blood oozes out and he remains upright. He then attacks the stunned officers using his “shotgun pellets” before he leaves the area.

The episode concludes when the other squads surround Hirakawa who is standing in the center of the room. As they point their guns at him, the mayor welcomes and greets them composedly.
