Synopsis


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. Shin 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?

Anime adaption of the horror manga Kiseijuu.

Well damn, that is quite a summary based on the synopsis. I took a glance at the manga and the artwork has a old school feeling to it. Besides that, it obviously adapts horror elements. Anyways, I am hyped to see how this will go assuming it will be adapted faithfully.

Note: The manga has 64 chapters so I expect a possible 2 cour although I'm not sure yet.

Here's a live action PV of the series so far:

Holy fucking shit they are adapting this?! This is one of my favorite manga ever!

I even did a brief review of it years ago:

http://www.freakinawesomenetwork.net/2011/10/nippon-manga-rebyu-parasyte/

Please excuse the name of my column. We were encouraged to create stand out names for our columns, and since mine was manga reviews I wanted my column name to reflect that they were different from Western comics.

As for the art style of the manga having an old school look, well that's cause it IS old school. The manga ran from 1990-1995.

That's why I gave up hope about it being adapted to anime, the series was so damn old and wasn't ongoing.

Seinen usually equals a must watch for me. So I'm excited, this sounds cool.

The only thing that has me worried is there is a lot of stuff that will probably get censored. The manga ranks up there as one of the most goriest ones around, and there is some nudity, too. Like I said in my review, Migi straight up turns into a big, veiny, erect penis full on uncensored in the manga. That's definitely getting censored, or maybe even cut entirely.

On the other hand, on thing that gives me hope is that since the manga ended long ago, we might get the entire thing adapted(it's only 64 chapters long).

An erect phallus? Well, it seems that this manga/anime has piqued my interest.

Not yet but soon enough. I'm expecting a preview or something soon too. Based on the manga that I've read recently, this would either be a 2 cour (without omitting material since the chapters aren't really that long) or a split 2 cour. Either way, if this is a one cour (12-13 episodes), then I would be prepared for some controversy.

Can a mod change the title of the thread to Parasyte please? It seems to be the more popular title rather than Kiseijuu. Thanks.

Not really liking the changes made to the character designs.

I mean there is nothing WRONG with the designs, they just barely look like the manga versions.... :-/

Also Aya Hirano as Migi confirms he'll have a high pitched voice. Well that's gonna take some getting use to. When I read the manga I read Migi's lines in a more middle of the road voice. Not high nor low, just average.

Oh well as long as we get the entire manga adapted, preferably in a non-rushed way(ie multiple cours), I'll be happy. If it is one cour, I'm gonna be majorly let down....

Once CR or someone else picks up the anime, we'll find out what it's officially named based on the publisher preference, and can adjust. But until then, we're all waiting to learn more, so I'm leaving the title alone, since it might change back again. Instead, I would recommend waiting until the official (or even popular) title is announced before creating such early anticipation threads for future stuff.

I also saw your request to have anticipation removed from the title, but the anime isn't out yet, so anticipation fits the show better than discussion, or nothing at all. Again, we can (and will) adjust once the show comes out.
