In 2014, TOHO announced the release of a two-part live-action film. In 2014, an anime TV series filmed by MADHOUSE Studios aired. The film was originally directed by New Line Cinema, a Hollywood film company that bought the film in 2005, but it was not filmed and expired in 2013.
As the name implies, Kiseijuu, the main characters in the story are anonymous parasites who do not know where they came from. Naturally, these parasites, which want to kill humans, enter the human body and infect humans. They take over the brain and become cannibalistic monsters that cling to the human body. A parasite that can plunder the human body can pretend to be an ordinary person. They kill and eat in front of their victims.
A high school student named Izumi Shinichi was lucky. The parasite that entered his body did not reach Shinichi’s brain, but only his right hand. Imagine for a second you were transposed into the karmic driven world of Earl. The Migi (right hand) was able to communicate with Shinichi, and the two agreed to live together for survival.
Shinichi lives with his mother, Izumi Nobuko, a mother and a son. For Shinichi, who felt guilty when she saw her mother struggling alone, it became even more stressful to be involved with these cannibal parasites. To make matters worse, the parasites were so sensitive to each other that Shinichi could not escape and killed one of his first cannibalistic parasites with the help of Migi.
Shinichi, who had to run away from other parasites while Migi was hidden from the public, one day found out that one day her new teacher, Tamiya Ryoko, was a parasite. Unlike other cannibalistic parasites, Tamiya tells Shinichi that she is trying to find a way for humans and humans to coexist, adding Shinichi to their network. But another parasite, a police officer, and A, disbelieving Shinichi, attacked Shinichi one night on the street. Shinichi was able to survive with the help of Migi’s luck and good fortune, but the person who returned home was Shinichi’s mother, Nobkuo.
The second part, which is almost six months apart, continues the story from the end of the first part. Shinichi, once transformed into a different person due to events in Part 1, is once again involved in a war between parasites and humans. Tamiya’s parasite network has risen to mayor. They can make their organization bigger. Meanwhile, Tamiya, who gave birth to a baby boy to test her ability to test her behavior, testified. I noticed a change in my thinking. The relationship between Shinichi and Migi also became closer.
Confronting parasites that do not accept the need for adaptation in order to coexist with humans proposed by Tamiya is a special task force sent by the government to combat parasites. Thus, the battle between the parasites and humans reached its climax. Is it possible for Shinichi and Migi to coexist with these two species? Which side are evil? Humans? We have to find out if they are parasites.
One notable difference between Sections 1 and 2 is that the first film depicts the dangers of parasites that first come to life. Human fans must hate parasites that are brutally killing people as villains. In the second phase, the parasites gradually adapt to the human body over time, both physically and mentally. They are also evolving emotionally. This time around, humans are no longer the only victims.
Simply put, Parasyte was not a very positive story before it came out. Academy Award-winning director Yamazaki Takashi seems to have tried to make the film a better film than an adaptation of a manga series. The original series of 10 manga episodes were cut and pasted during the four-hour film series, and due to the fact that the plot was nearly two decades apart, some of the original series had to be updated, which would have been a source of frustration for the original series audience. Skip the characters and lots of important plot. One of the most notable aspects of the storyline is the family situation of the main character, Shinichi.
Designing a mother and a son is not a bad idea, as it is not as perfect as the original. This arrangement further highlighted the bond between Shinichi and his mother, and had a stronger effect on Shinichi’s subsequent psychological changes. The relationship between Shinichi and her son became even more important, as the girl who was the main character in Shinichi’s transformation in the original story, Kana, was left behind in the live-action. In fact, from the original story, I noticed that the mother played a key role in Shinichi’s emotional struggles, but she was less visible in describing their external relationship.
Live-action is even better here. Izumi Nobuko’s son’s son-in-law’s love affair with his son-in-law, especially in the high-profile finale of the final episode of Part 1, is more than just manga and anime. Similarly, Tamiya took some time to portray the reporter Kuramori and her daughter, who was hired by Tamiya to watch Shinichi, to make the audience more aware of the film’s human characters. It makes me feel compassionate.
It is also worth noting that the plot and some of the characters are a bit too light to be too harsh. For example, at the scenes where the SAT raided the mayor’s office, which could cause political and social problems, atrocities were minimized as much as possible. Do not underestimate the value of bloodletting. The rest of the human body parts that are eaten are more organic than the ones in the cartoon.
Pause to compare with the original cartoon. Let’s take a look at an ordinary movie. If so, it’s a great movie. Every movie Each dialogue is exactly what the director wants to convey. There is no need for extras. There are monsters and powerful princes who kill people. It is considered a battle action car between human armies and police. It doesn’t seem to matter. I also noticed that almost all of the English subtitles with the English subtitles for both films are currently on the internet. So, as I said before, I do not understand what is being said, so it is often seen as an action body horror movie. (Now Samuri has translated it into Burmese himself.)
As for the character, Tamiya Ryoko, who plays the famous actress Fukatsu Eri, was a cold-blooded character in the first part, but in the second part, she became quite human after becoming a mother. He became an anti-villain character. Also, Fukatsu Eri’s good looks make her creepy character not as scary as you might think, but she is the best actress in the whole movie. The main character, Sometani Shota, was criticized for his dumb derp face, but he acted quite cool. Only one. As beautiful as a doll, it has an old mouth. It’s really annoying to see actress Hashimoto Ai’s Satomi with a dead face.
It is divided into two parts. In the first film, which is a common problem with live-action films, the plot is stretched to the highest point, and in the second half, the rest of the story is forced to be abruptly compressed. There are many scenes to be shown. Due to lack of time, all the important scenes are happening at the same time and the plot is not falling all the time. The main character, Shinichi, changed from a happy young man to a calm and calm person. And then you regain your humane feelings.
The filmmaker may not even notice the fast-paced character changes, but it does take a lot of time for the finale. The scene of the attack was filmed in a huge incinerator. The action scenes and CG effects are surprisingly neat for a Japanese (Asian) film. This is especially satisfying when the most important character, Migi, is created in CG.
Where do humans and parasites live? Of course. It’s impossible for the human-eating parasite to encourage us because we are real people. But there are other common Monster movies. Unlike horror movies, Parasyte Live-action, which will not end with a film that successfully defeats the evil creatures that plague the human race, has been rated as one of the craziest Japanese films to watch this year. :
