By now, we are quite familiar with the sci-fi concept of an alien or parasite to control living brains to capture, manipulate, and then hunt / conquer. We have seen concepts in some famous films and shows such as Aliens, Poison, The Thing and even Ben 10.
Although movies like these are gore and watching them hurt our stomachs, we cannot resist a good bloodbath, which is actually a pariah of Madhouse Studios. Season 1 of the popular anime came out almost 2 decades ago in 2004, but its open-to-interpretation led fans to wonder if there will ever be another season. Here’s what we know so far.
Speculation on parity season 2
Parasyte: Maxim is based on the manga Parasyte Beasts written by Hitoshi Iwaaki, and most consider the anime adaptation by Madhouse to be better than the source material.
The anime, which follows the source material very closely, has a similar ending, wrapping up the entire story in more than one season. On the other hand, the ending is such that it indicates that some parasites may still be disguised as humans, with fans hoping for a continuation.
In the end, the decision to make a new season rests entirely with Madhouse Studios. If they really wanted to, they could write an original story for Season 2. But so far no comment has been made about a new season and it is nothing short of a pipe dream.
If you want some more Zoroastrian action, you can watch the film adaptation, which isn’t exactly as good as the anime, but it’s not too bad either.
The film’s story revolves around a 17-year-old boy whose world broke when a species of parasitic aliens attacked him from above. Parasites that are harmless on their own can cause havoc to reach and control their hosts’ brains. In the boy, in Izumi’s case, a parasite fails to enter his brain because he had headphones, so instead, it hangs on his arm, creating a symbiosis that is controlled by half-Izumi. And half by parasites.
Izumi forms a bond with this parasite, Maggie, and uses her new abilities to hunt other man-eating parasites.
