Adult Swim's Toonami block is set to get a bit of sci-fi horror as Parasyte -the maxim-, Madhouse's 2014 adaptation of Hitoshi Iwaaki's 1988-95 manga, was revealed at Anime Expo. The series, continuing Swim's new relationship with Sentai Filmworks that sees Akame Ga Kill debut in August, is planned for a fall launch.
After some less than subtle advertising gave fans an early tip-off on the news, Toonami co-creator Jason DeMarco confirmed the plans.
