Q. Is there really going to be an English Dub of Parasyte the Maxim?

A. I guess it’s okay to say that YES, there will definitely be an English dub for Parasyte. When it releases is still up in the air due to some recent developments, but when it does you can look forward to that dub. Thanks!

Anime already streaming on Crunchyroll

Sentai Filmworks brought a truck to this year’s Anime Expo convention in Los Angeles on Thursday with an ad revealing that Parasyte -the maxim- will air on Adult Swim’s Toonami block this fall.

The 24-episode series based on Hitoshi Iwaaki’s manga premiered in October. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan and Sentai Filmworks licensed the series for North America, South America, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand.

Sentai Filmworks describes the story:

Update: Sentai Filmworks told ANN that it could not comment on the ad on the truck at this time, and asked fans to stay tuned to the Sentai Filmworks panel later on Thursday.

Update 2: The truck has since covered the section of the ad that had said that the show would air on Toonami this fall.


Dang it’s a trend, 2 shows in a row , Suck it, Funimation :grin:

Per PR:


HOUSTON, July 2, 2015 – Humankind’s extinction begins this fall as Parasyte -the maxim- invades Toonami, the hugely popular Adult Swim™ anime block.

Sentai Filmworks announced Thursday during their Anime Expo 2015 panel that Parasyte -the maxim- is heading to Adult Swim, basic cable’s #1 network with young adults for over a decade.

Parasyte -the maxim- chronicles a silent, sinister alien invasion and follows 17-year-old Shinichi, whose life gets seriously complicated when one would-be invader assumes control of his right hand. Originally broadcast in Japan on Nippon TV, the series is produced by MADHOUSE and adapted from the groundbreaking sci-fi/horror manga created by Hitoshi Iwaaki.

Parasyte –the maxim- is scheduled to begin broadcast on Toonami this October. Detailed schedule information will be released as soon as it becomes available.
