Parasyte: Part 2

寄生獣 完結編

Nippon Cinema   ª 

Shinichi and his “parasite­kick” Migi have to find out that all the endured hardship was but a mere taste of worse to come. Although PARASYTE: PART 2 is just as action­packed as the first offering, it also delves deeper into the philosophical implications of the manga it is based on, walking the thin line between bloody thrill ride and sociopolitical satire.
