    Kiseijuu (Parasyte) by Iwaaki Hitoshi

    Well..I just stumbled over it and while I'm not a fan of the horror genre this one really hooked me:
    Kiseijuu (or Parasyte).

    Summary and more info here.
    Quote Originally Posted by wikipedia
    Parasyte centers around a teenage boy named Shin'ichi Izumi (泉新一 Izumi Shin'ichi), or Shin in the English version. He lives with his mother and father in a rather quiet neighborhood when, one night, an alien invasion occurs. The aliens are called Parasytes. They are worm-like creatures that enter human "hosts" throught their ears or noses, and take over their brain. A Parasyte attempts to crawl into Shin's ear and take over his brain while he sleeps, but is stopped by his headphones and accidentally burrows into one of his hands, instead. In the Japanese version, it takes over his right hand and it is named Migii (ミギー). In the English version, it takes over his left hand (because the images in the book are flipped to allow for left-to-right reading) and is named "Lefty."

    Because the Parasyte infected his hand instead of his brain, Shin and Migii each retain their own, separate intellect. This gives them an edge in battling the other Parasytes, who see Shin's ability to think independently as a threat.
    Warning: it contains some serious violence. I must say that I was quite shocked by the awful way humans were slaughtered.

    What I really like about this is how the character of Shinji develops. Because a parasyte is living inside him he doubts himself if he becomes unhuman, too. There are some moral and ethical issues about the right to live for parasytes and how much a human live values.

    Looks interesting.
    This might be of some interest to some
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0470888/

    Edit:
    This was a really great manga, but it seems like the last chapter is missing or hasn't been released yet?
    Just wondering if someone here maybe know where one could get the chapter or when it will be released..
    I don't mean to be rude if it appears so, I just have very little knowledge with using proper words in english.. or something.

    Spoiler show

    Btw is it only me, or does this manga seem to be inspired by Alpha Centauri(PC Game) or the otherway around.

    the manga is damn good, just after not reading it for a while I forgot about it. also the burtality of it is stark and rigid, similiar to how people do things in real life, in very dire situations

    ooooooooooooooooo it always nice to see that a jp novel/manga is being recognize by US industry, i love the manga but was never able to read the end since no one translated it, hope the movie is as good as the manga. cant wait

    but from imdb.com, they added 3 more writer along with hitoshi iwaaki the creator of the novel....that doesnt seem like a good sign, hope the addon script doesnt screw up the movie.

    I absolutely love this manga its so awesome, and even though its ultra violent its not truly disturbing for the reader.

    Ahh, Excuse the ressurection of this quite dead topic, but I just have to say I got into this manga a few years back and it is excellent! I've only read up to volume 2 and I want to really thank you Phonox and Miso for giving links for dls.

    Re: Kiseijuu/Parasyte Discussion

    A bit of a dead topic, but posting here should be better than starting a new one, I think.
    Anyway, just a heads up incase someone has missed it, Manga Otaku has now scanslated Chapter 60 in Volume 10.

    Same sources as before.
    Also I've uploaded it to two alternate locations, as the speed from StopTazmo was really slow (It took 2 hours), I hope this isn't against the rules somehow.
    If it is, against the rules, I'll remove right away.

    Alternate Direct Download:

    Re: Kiseijuu/Parasyte Discussion

    -ressurects thread-

    I just finished reading all the scanlated chapters of Kiseijuu... And I'm sorely disapointed to find that there aren't going to be any more! Not only that, the English version is out of print... But Del Ray picked it up, which is great, considering they're pretty good, but they're starting from the beginning... So they're still at volume one.

    Anyway, my point is that if anyone has and raw links for chapter 60+ I'd really love to seem them! The suspsense is killing me! This is a fabulous manga and I really hope another group picks it up! (apparently it only goes until 64 anyway...)
