Is Ajin Real

Ajin (亜人 Demi-Human) are the titular species of the series. Ajin look exactly like normal people, with the only things separating them from other humans being the fact they can generate Invisible Black Matter, or IBM, within their bodies, making them immortal. Seventeen years before the beginning of the series, the Ajin were first discovered in Africa, when a soldier fighting on the battlefields rose from the dead countless times. This earned him the name "Soldier of God (神の兵, Kami no Hey?)", and he soon became famous throughout the country he was fighting in. When word got out, an American government organization captured him and confirmed his immortality. While they tried to suppress this information from the public, it was simply too big, and it quickly became public knowledge. There is no known method to discern Ajin from humans apart from them dying and reviving. However, it's possible for one Ajin to discover another Ajin if that person sees their IBM. It's also possible for Ajin to make their Black Ghost visible to humans when Ajin feel extreme emotions such as rage and bloodlust. The defining trait of all Ajin is their immortality. They are unable to die under any circumstances, such as being completely crushed, decapitated, or even due to malnutrition.

The exact mechanism of this is unknown but Ikuya Ogura suggested that the only way it is possible would be because they possess an unknown matter in their body which replaces any body tissues or nutrients lost. An Ajin's wounds begin healing immediately after a revival and it only takes a few seconds. However, they only begin to heal after dying, or "resetting", otherwise their injuries will not heal immediately and will only heal at a natural rate. This resetting doesn't heal physical deformities that the user was born with, however, as shown in Okuyama's case. This reinforced the statement that Ajin always return to their original state, even if that state is not 100% functional. An Ajin passively uses the largest piece of flesh as a base and collects the smaller pieces for regeneration. However, pieces that are too far away are not collected and instead replaced by growing new body parts. The leftover piece will then simply stop working. Notably, an Ajin can regenerate from a severed body part, no matter how far the location of that severed part is from the rest, but only if that body part is the largest part remaining of their body. For example, if their entire being is completely destroyed, a severed piece of their arm that is removed from their body 100 meters away, they can regenerate their entire being from that arm. There is technically one way for an Ajin to die, though it depends on the ones definition of death.

The old head will still be conscious of what is going on for a few moments.

As previously mentioned, and Ajin regenerates from their largest piece and leftover pieces that were severed will simply stop working. If an Ajin's head is chopped off and too far away to reattach itself, a new head will grow it's place. The new head will have all the memories and personality of the original, but technically the old head will have "died". The old head will still be conscious of what is going on for a few moments. This is the closest known way an Ajin can come to death, although it has been theorized that an Ajin may be able to die due to complications of old age. Ajin can also use a paralyzing scream that seizes the nervous system, paralyzing everyone in their immediate vicinity (its range is still unknown). think that this is a type of thanatosis reflex, which is why it works better on people who don't know about Ajin Researchers. Its effects on the targeted person can also be neutralized by the user if he/she wishes to (as in the case of Nagai and Kaito). However, this ability can be easily countered by simply wearing ear plugs or some other kind of noise dampeners. Theorised by Ogura to be the main cause of the Ajin's powers, all Ajin shown so far possess Invisible Black Matter (インビジブルブラックマター, Inbijiburu Burakku Mata?) which cannot be seen by normal humans. This matter is what allows the Ajin to replace any lost body tissues or nutrients, but there is a more lethal way in which it can be used.

However, pieces that are too far away are not collected, but replaced instead.

Ajin and most commonly used for combat purposes. However, it should be noted that not all Ajin are able to materialize a Black Ghost (Nakano being one, though shown to temporarily do so in the OVA) and those who can are usually only able to do so once per day. There is also no known method of how an Ajin can properly materialize a Black Ghost although most of the characters in the series managed to manifest their Ghosts. It is interesting to note that the anime has opted to give most Ajin red or reddish-brown eyes (such as Kei, Izumi, Kou and Shinya). Although there are 47 recorded Ajin in the world, it is speculated that the number is in actuality much higher as most Ajin are not discovered before they die or are in hiding from the government. An Ajin uses the largest piece of flesh as a base and collects the smaller pieces for regeneration. However, pieces that are too far away are not collected, but replaced instead. An Ajin's body will always return to their original state, no matter the situation.

Scott Shelly ( Hangul:셸리 ) is one of the female protagonists in the webtoon. She begins a one-sided relationship with Jay at the start of the series but as the story progress they have a mutual crush on each other and as of chapter 378 they are in a relationship. Shelly is the only female member of the Humming Bird Crew. Because she stayed at England before coming to Korea her personality is perceived as very headstrong. She does not like it when people talk badly about her friends, especially Jay. Shelly also has a lot of stamina and strength, she can keep up with the group's pace when racing and can actually send people flying with her punch (Although that may be for comedic reasons) but never got into the street fights with the guys of the crew. When she was hit on in her first appearance on the series she refused with a lot of sass. Mia described her as someone who can confidently express her thoughts and feelings. Although her words are harsh, it is because she never sugar coated her words with her friends. And with Jay, Shelly is very clingy and flirtatious. She has very foreign features: pale skin, her eyes actually look more mint green in color than blue, blond wavy hair. It is known later in the series that she has a tattoo in the side of her arm near the wrist that reads out "temet nosce" or "Know Thyself". At school she wears her uniform usually without the red vest and both wears the skirt and pants.

She is often seen wearing high-end brand clothing, but also occasionally wearing street wear and tomboyish clothes. When riding her bike, she usually wears a jacket and helmet with the same color as her eyes or the Hummingbird crew's hood. She is tall, with long thin legs, a small waist and a bigger bust. Not much is known about Shelly, but it is established that she is from England and she requested to transfer to Sunny High School because of Jay. It was told in an early episode (Ep. 27) that she will be in Korea for one semester. Shelly is the granddaughter of Sunny High School's principal, Nick. When Shelly was a kid, she didn't want to get married and promised Nick that she will just live with him forever, which caused Nick to think that Shelly is not interested to guys until she got interested in Jay. That also caused the over protectiveness of her grandfather. Jay saw what happened and chased the thieves to get her purse back. She refused on taking him to the hospital but Jay refused. She picked up his student ID that had fallen to the ground and, motivated by her encounter with Jay, called her grandfather, asking him to let her attend Sunny High School. Her second meeting with Jay was in their classroom. She kissed him out of the blue and the gossip that Shelly and Jay were in a relationship quickly spread around the school.

When Jay, Dom and Minu got suspended, Shelly visited them and scolded Dom and Minu badly about how Jay got caught with their actions. Jay got pissed and told her to screw off, she ended up crying and running away. When Jay was about to say sorry, he got a pink rose from Minu, saying that he should give it to her. He couldn't and Shelly went on saying that she'll forgive him if he became her boyfriend for a week and Jay agreed. She joined Hummingbird as the only female on the team, she continued to flirt with Jay and when Jay was teaching Mia how to ride a bike, she kept on intervening and wanting him to teach her even though she knows how. On a special episode, Shelly was seen riding a bike in Jay's neighborhood. Minu and Kay noticed her, Kay was thinking of who might Shelly go out with and ended up being shocked that it was his brother. In the last scene, Jay and Shelly are resting after riding their bike together, and she comments that Jay suits biking more than studying. The Preliminaries for the League of Street has started, only Dom and Jay were able to race at the first two rounds. After that, they found out that Jay's birthday was near and planned to celebrate it. She didn't showed up at school on his birthday because she was the one who prepared the gift that they got for him.

39;s concern and told her an advice to start believing in herself more and learning to love herself.

When the boys with the worried June except Jay planned to give Jay a strong alcoholic drink, they didn't expect Shelly to drink it, thinking it was juice. They are dumb-founded and later on, a drunk Shelly came closer to Jay and told her how she was hurt by his actions and proceeding to kiss him the second time. They pulled Shelly of Jay who was already littered with kiss marks. Mia was the one who brought Shelly home, when she was sober enough, Mia asked her if she liked Jay which she answered yes. Mia told her how she envied her for being able to confidently express her thoughts and feelings. Shelly answered that she doesn't understand Mia's concern and told her an advice to start believing in herself more and learning to love herself. This pushed Mia to contact the modeling agency that reached out to her. Before the race, Shelly was being hit on by a member of the Bullet Crew who will be racing against them. The glasses guy kept on hitting on her even when she's denying him. Vinny came to her rescue and punched the guy when he didn't stop.

That led to the glasses guy to take drugs to have a revenge against the Hummingbird Crew. Shelly took the lead until he passes the baton to June. As the race ended, she tried to kiss Jay in his sleep but he moved and she wasn't able to do so. She also took the test with Minu and Dom since, in a sense, she is still a student at Sunny High. When Mia was modeling, a bunch of girls kept on talking about her, gossiping about Mia like dating an old guy or having a sugar daddy to be able to model. Shelly obviously tried to help her. Yuna and Shelly later on went to Mia's house in hopes that they could get her to come to school. On the way riding a bus, a guy came up on her behind and was hitting on her, she shut him down while cursing, very contrasting of her appearance. When Yuna, Mia and Shelly were talking at the park near Mia's house, Shelly started saying something harsh to Mia, although it is a way to actually let Mia see what's happening beyond her room which she choose to lock herself with. Yuna reprimanded Shelly, saying she was too harsh and Mia broke down but then was silent at what Shelly said. After that talk, the three of them came at Heri's bike shop so that Mia can say thank you.
