Introduction

Genocidal Organ was published back in 2007 and was praised as 'the best fiction work of the 2000s'. It is impossible just to categorize this unparalleled work as simply science fiction, action or mystery. On the book's dust cover, there were words of great praise from outstanding creators such as Hideo Kojima, Miyuki Miyabe and Kotaro Isaka. The original work was written with the concept that 'War is depicted in the first person. The protagonist is immature, because technology makes it impossible for him to mature.'

The extremely realistic battle depictions and detailed self-reflective mental depictions are widely known as Genocidal Organ's notable characteristics. That is why there are very few film makers capable of expressing both of these elements. The director, Shuko Murase, is undoubtedly one of the most talented and skilful film makers around.

Due to Studio manglobe's bankruptcy in Autumn 2015, the movie's production was suddenly brought to the brink of cancellation. However, the production was relaunched thanks to the newly-established studio, Geno Studio.

'It was such an unpredictable crisis but maybe the late Project Itoh had given us another chance.'

Genocidal Organ has been relaunched and will be centering around Murase.
We're sure the quality of the movie will far exceed our expectations.
Nobody can stop Project Itoh.
