posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official Youtube channel of Fuji TV's Noitamina block began streaming the first 14 minutes of Genocidal Organ, the anime film based on Project Itoh's novel of the same name, last Friday. The video promotes the film's home video Blu-ray Disc and DVD release in Japan on October 25. (The same video debuted at Tokyo International Film Festival last October, before the whole film opened.)
Genocidal Organ opened in Japan on February 3. The film opened in U.S. theaters on July 12 and 13. Funimation screened the film in Japanese with English subtitles. Funimation previously debuted the other two Project Itoh films, The Empire of Corpses and Harmony, in select theaters last year in April and May, respectively. The Empire of Corpses screened with an English dub while Harmony had both English-dubbed and English-subtitled screenings.
Funimation will release Genocidal Organ on home video with an English dub on November 7. The English dub cast, under ADR director Clifford Chapin, script writer Deborah Crane, mixer Nathanael Harrison CAS, and engineers Jamal Roberson and Matt Grounds, includes:
- Josh Grelle as Clavis
- Ricco Fajardo as John Paul
- Jeannie Tirado as Lucie
- Ian Sinclair as Williams
- Christopher R. Sabat as Rockwell
- Clifford Chapin as Alex
- David Wald as Lucius
- Joel McDonald as Leland
Funimation also released The Empire of Corpses and Harmony on Blu-ray Disc and DVD last year.
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.
