As intriguing as Genocidal Organ has been since the Project Itoh adaptation was first announced, the lack of much in the way of compelling visuals and promotion has kept a lot from really getting too excited about it. But now the noitaminA channel has updated with the first main trailer for the film while highlighting the theme song from EGOIST for it. Amid this, we also get the the cast list for the film.
The cast includes:
- Yūichi Nakamura as Clavis Shepherd

- Yuuki Kaji as Alex
- Kaito Ishikawa as Realand
- Akio Ohtsuka as Rockwell
- Sanae Kobayashi as Lucia
- Takahiro Sakurai as John Paul
Shukou Murase is directing Genocidal Organ at studio manglobe.
Project Itoh is the pen name of Satoshi Ito, a 34 year old science fiction novelist in Japan who died in 2009 but had some strong works. Some of his works are being brought to life in anime form with Genocidal Organ, Empire of Corposes and Harmony, all three of which have been released in North America by the book imprint of Viz Media, Haikasoru. Ito wrote for only two years before his death but left behind some fascinating works to be adapted.
Plot concept: 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.
