The film series is based on Hitoshi Iwaaki's Parasyte manga. It 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. The films are directed by Takashi Yamazaki (live action Space Battleship Yamato, Always: Sunset on Third Street).
The first movie held the top opening weekend box office for the first weekend of December, earning 340 million yen (about US$2.85 million).
