Life and Oath (生命と誓い, Seimei to Chikai) Is the 23rd episode of the Parasyte -the maxim- (寄生獣 セイの格率, Kiseiju Sei no Kakuritsu), anime series.
While searching for Gotou, Shinichi accepts that he may die in this confrontation. After multiple failed attempts to kill Gotou, Shinichi is able to wound him, using a rusty pipe. Before Gotou lands a lethal strike on Shinichi, Migi is revealed to have been alive inside Gotou and relocates to Shinichi's body, saving his life. Gotou's body starts rebelling against him, and bursting apart, due to Shinichi poisoning him earlier. As Shinichi watches Gotou struggle to stay alive, he initially decides to let him live, but after seeing how he's just one human trying to protect his small family, he goes back and kills him.
