“PARASYTE -THE MAXIM-” INVADES TOONAMI™

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.
