Here’s a chance for Parasyte fans to preview the English-dub of the hit 24-episode horror series that wowed viewers the minute it premiered in October of last year. The English-dub, based on the trailer released by Adult Swim’s Toonami block, sounds absolutely phenomenal, with Migi’s voice sounding completely on-point and the cast as a whole sound on-par with the Japanese-dub cast of the series. The trailer is less than 2 minutes long, but it gives viewers a pretty good preview as to what the complete series dub will sound like.
Sentai Filmworks has licensed the 24 episode anime series and Kodansha Comics USA is releasing the manga series in print; Parasyte has a total of 10 volumes.
Kodansha Comics USA describes the plot of Parastye as:
They arrive in silence and darkness. They descend from the skies. They have a hunger for human flesh. They are everywhere. They are parasites, alien creatures who must invade—and take control of—a human host to survive. And once they have infected their victims, they can assume any deadly form they choose: monsters with giant teeth, winged demons, creatures with blades for hands. But most have chosen to conceal their lethal purpose behind ordinary human faces. So no one knows their secret—except an ordinary high school student. Shin is battling for control of his own body against an alien parasite, but can he find a way to warn humanity of the horrors to come?
Parasyte -the maxim- will premiere on Adult Swim’s Toonami block on Saturday, October 3rd at 1 a.m. EDT (Sunday). Check out the trailer down below and let us know your thoughts on the English-dub in the comments!
