Sakurai Gaimon’s 2012 sci-fi action horror manga publication, Ajin: Demi Human, has a lot to its current story arsenal. How Bayside Shakedown film series and Shaolin Girl helmer Motohiro Katsuyuki is weaving it all together for its forthcoming feature film adaptation remains to be seen but right now, the teaser is something that needs to be seen to be believed, because it’s looks too awesome.
For the unengaged, however, take into mind the presence of actor Satoh Takeru, known prolifically for helping bring to life Otomo Keishi’s Rurouni Kenshin trilogy, now staking his claim as medical intern Nagai Kei, who is stricken by a car and presumably killed until he wakes up almost immediately and discovers himself to be one of many unknown hosts of an inexplicable translucent entity known as Ajin, mysterious creatures who have already made grim headlines around the world.
Imbued with untested, supernatural abilities – including possible immortality, it’s a grim twist that ultimately tests Nagai’s mettle and moral compass with both sides of the law descending into all out war, and without question, Nagai will surely be choosing a side. We’ll be seeing how this all comes to pass in its live-action delivery in wake of a pending September 30 release in Japan, but the first teaser available below looks every bit as slick, promising, and damn well cool!
Actor Tamayama Tetsuji and actress Kawaei Rina, and actors Ayano Gou, Shirota Yuu and Yamada Yuki also star. Watch the brand new teaser now!
