Genocidal Organ Film's English-Subtitled Trailer Streamed


Recommended Posts

FUNimation Entertainment began streaming an English-subtitled trailer for its theatrical release of the anime film based on Project Itoh's Genocidal Organ novel. The company also posted a list of U.S. theaters that will screen the film, and confirmed that the screenings will be in Japanese with English subtitles.



The film will open for two nights in U.S. theaters on July 12 and 13.

Genocidal Organ opened in Japan on February 3.

The film stars:

  • Yūichi Nakamura as Clavis Shepherd
  • Akio Ohtsuka as Rockwell
  • Kaito Ishikawa as Realand
  • Sanae Kobayashi as Lucia
  • Satoshi Mikami as Williams
  • Takahiro Sakurai as John Paul
  • Yuuki Kaji as Alex


Viz Media's Haikasoru imprint describes Genocidal Organ's original novel:

The war on terror exploded, literally, the day Sarajevo was destroyed by a homemade nuclear device. The leading democracies have 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 darkness—a genocidal organ.

The new anime company Geno Studio produced the film. Geno Studio took over production of the film after the studio Manglobe, which was originally animating the film, filed for bankruptcy in September 2015. The film's staff then announced in October 2015 that the film had been delayed.

Genocidal Organ from its trailer in my opinion seems to show an interesting premise on the state of  violence  and human nature. It also seems to  addresses the security state paradox and issues in establishing a survlience state. It appears to raise questions about who is really right and wrong in regards to the anthropological notions of war and aggression.
