Anime film based on Project Itoh novel hits the U.S. next month
Theatergoers looking to check out the third and final anime film based on the work of Project Itoh (AKA the late Satoshi Itō), Genocidal Organ, can mark their calendars for July 12 and 13. Funimation has screenings lined up for the U.S., with a list of participating theaters available on their website, and a new English-subtitled trailer is here to preview the sci-fi feature.
Based on the captivating sci-fi novel by Project Itoh, Genocidal Organ takes an introspective look at a post-9/11 future, exploring freedom, security, and a bizarre shift in terrorism throughout the world.
After a homemade bomb decimates Sarajevo, developed countries rely on advanced surveillance to free them from the threat of terrorism. But while the United States enjoys heightened security, the nations it once considered threatening are mysteriously plagued by genocide within their own borders. Strangely, these massacres all link back to one American by the name of John Paul. Special agent Clavis Shepherd is sent to capture the elusive target, but even with combat meds to numb the pain and a life rooted in the bliss of ignorance, nothing can prepare this soldier—or the world—for the truth behind humanity’s darkness.
