Parasyte Live-Action Films

  • "Montreal's Fantasia International Film Festival is listing Funimation as the distributor for both live-action Parasyte films. Funimation did not respond to ANN's request for confirmation as of press time. These films adapt Hitoshi Iwaaki's original manga serialized in Kodansha's Afternoon magazine from 1990-1995. The 10-volume series (later reprinted in an eight-volume version) has more than 11 million copies in print." Funimation will most likely show these films in theaters as well as releasing them on bluray/DVD.

    Part 1 Trailer:

    "The first Parasyte movie premiered in November 2014 in Japan, and the sequel in April 2015. Shōta Sometani (live-action xxxHOLiC, All Esper Dayo!) stars in the films as Shinichi Izumi, Eri Fukatsu (Onnanoko Monogatari) plays Ryōko Tamiya, and Ai Hashimoto (Blood-C: The Last Dark, live-action Another, Sadako 3D) plays Satomi Murano."
