Updated 7/3/15 12:32PM: Sentai Filmworks sent out a press release detailing what they said at their panel yesterday during Anime Expo 2015. Here’s what they said:
Humankind’s extinction begins this fall as Parasyte -the maxim- invades Toonami, the hugely popular Adult Swim™ anime block.
Sentai Filmworks announced Thursday during their Anime Expo 2015 panel that Parasyte -the maxim- is heading to Adult Swim, basic cable’s #1 network with young adults for over a decade.
Parasyte -the maxim- chronicles a silent, sinister alien invasion and follows 17-year-old Shinichi, whose life gets seriously complicated when one would-be invader assumes control of his right hand. Originally broadcast in Japan on Nippon TV, the series is produced by MADHOUSE and adapted from the groundbreaking sci-fi/horror manga created by Hitoshi Iwaaki.
Parasyte –the maxim- is scheduled to begin broadcast on Toonami this October. Detailed schedule information will be released as soon as it becomes available.
Parasyte will play this October. What show do you think it will replace? Let us know below.
