The TIFF Ani! event at the Tokyo International Film Festival revealed on Monday that the anime film of Project Itoh's Genocidal Organ novel will open in Japan on February 3. The event screened part of the film on Monday, and also revealed a new visual drawn by Redjuice. The tagline in the visual is also referenced in the screened footage, "Hell, is all in the mind."
The film stars:
- Yūichi Nakamura as Clavis Shepherd
- Akio Ohtsuka as Rockwell
- Kaito Ishikawa as Realand
- Sanae Kobayashi as Lucia
- Satoshi Mikami as Williams

The new anime company Geno Studio is producing the film with director Shukou Murase. 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.
North American anime publisher Funimation Entertainment debuted the other two Project Itoh films, The Empire of Corpses and Harmony, in select theaters in April and May, respectively. The company has also licensed Genocidal Organ.
