Project Itoh: Genocidal Organ
A new trailer for Project Itoh: Genocidal Organ was released on Friday. The video depicts several of the main characters and debuts the film's theme music, "Reloaded," by popular musician Egoist. Originally being produced by the now bankrupt Manglobe Studio, the project has been transferred over to the newly created Geno Studio. Shukou Murase is directing the film. Genocidal Organ is scheduled to be released this Winter, and is based on the debut novel by Project Itoh. Check out the trailer below:
The war on terror exploded, literally, the day Sarajevo was destroyed by a homemade nuclear device. The leading democracies transformed into total surveillance states, and the developing world has drowned under a wave of genocides. The mysterious American John Paul seems to be behind the collapse of the world system, and it"s up to intelligence agent Clavis Shepherd to track John Paul across the wreckage of civilizations, and to find the true heart of darknessâ€”a genocidal organ.
The team behind the Project Itoh films want to carry on the legacy started by Satoshi ItÅ.
"Project Itoh, who left us all too soon
His debut work in 2007, Genocidal Organ, left a strong impression, and his book two years later Harmony became his masterpiece. These two full-length novels are left as his testament.
He left this world, but he left behind his stories (Projects). Are they blessings, or curses?
Since he decided on his pen name, perhaps his life as an author itself was all a 'project.' And so about five years later, the continuation of his 'Project' is starting.

The Project will not stop."
About the Author:
"Satoshi ItÅ (Project Itoh) (Oct. 14, 1974 March 20, 2009)
During his career as a web designer, he wrote a novel called Genocidal Organ and was nominated for the Nihon SF Taisho Award in 2007. However, Itoh had been diagnosed, and dealing, with recurrent cancer since 2001 and hospitalized frequently for treatment. Itoh continued to write novels during his last several years, including Harmony and The Empire of Corpses, and passed away on March 20, 2009. Later on in 2012, Toh Enjoe, a fellow award-winning science fiction writer who had often appeared with Itoh at conventions and in interviews, announced at a press conference that he would complete Itoh"s unfinished novel The Empire of Corpses. Later, Noitamina adapted Project Itoh"s three novels into animated feature films. All three films were directed and produced by different directors and studios."
"This is me.
This is the fiction that is me.
I want to dwell in your body.
And through your mouth, be passed along to others."
