Parasyte Anime Cast and Staff Revealed


A less than helping hand…

The manga takes place in a world where alien beings called Parasites come to Earth and start taking over humans by entering in through their noses and ears and attaching themselves to their brains. One alien called Migi is only able to take over high school student Shinichi Izumi’s right arm, and is unable to control Shinichi completely. Migi and Shinichi learn to co-exist, and the two battle other Parasites who see humans only as food.

Well that pretty much sums it up doesn’t it? Based on Hitoshi Iwaaki’s sci-fi horror manga, an anime version entitled Kiseiju: Sei no Kakuritsu will soon be upon us. As such, details have been released regarding the cast and staff of the series. So why not learn the names of the people behind Parasyte? That way you’ll know who to blame/thank for the bizarre imagery presented to you…
