New PV for “Genocidal Organ” Anime Film

A new promotional video has been released for the upcoming Genocidal Organ anime film adaptation.

Genocidal Organ was the debut novel for Project Itoh, a Japanese science fiction writer. The novel was originally published in 2007 and the English translation was published by VIZ Media in August 2012. This novel is one of three of Project Itoh’s works to be getting an anime film adaptation. Harmony had its film released in November 2015 and The Empire of Corpses film was released in October 2015. All three films feature theme songs performed by EGOIST.

VIZ Media describes the synopsis below:

“The war on terror exploded, literally, the day Sarajevo was destroyed by a homemade nuclear device. The leading democracies 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 film will open in theaters on February 3.

You can find the video after the break! Warning: It’s very violent.

“What’s NEKOPARA? Why, it’s a cat paradise! Kashou Minaduki, the son of a long line of
Japanese confection makers moved out to open his own shop “La Soleil” as a patisserie. But
upon moving out, hidden amongst his things were two of the catgirls, Chocola and Vanilla, that
the family had been raising. When he tried to send them back, they begged and pleaded until he
gave in and now they’ve opened La Soleil together. With two catgirls who really, REALLY love
their master trying their very best and occasionally failing — a heartful comedy opens for business!”

More information on this project can be found on the official OVA website.
