Summary: Based on the captivating sci-fi novel by Project Itoh, Genocidal Organ takes an introspective look at a post-9/11 future, exploring freedom, security, and a bizarre shift in terrorism throughout the world.

After a homemade bomb decimates Sarajevo, developed countries rely on advanced surveillance to free them from the threat of terrorism. =

But while the United States enjoys heightened security, the nations it once considered threatening are mysteriously plagued by genocide within their own borders.

Strangely, these massacres all link back to one American by the name of John Paul.

Special agent Clavis Shepherd is sent to capture the elusive target, but even with combat meds to numb the pain and a life rooted in the bliss of ignorance, nothing can prepare this soldier—or the world—for the truth behind humanity’s darkness.

My Thoughts

I found out about this anime movie thanks to randomly seeing a video clip on YouTube that YouTube recommended, it was a longer version of this scene:

Genocidal Organ – Official Clip – Assault

I liked the animation & tone of that scene, which reminded me of Ghost In The Shell & Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade, and so I decided to watch the trailer for the movie.

I liked the trailer as well, and so my brother GC & I watched the movie.

Likewise, I predicted that I would like this movie, and I did.

There was more talking & less action than I expected, so some people will probably find this movie to be boring at times, but I liked the intelligent dialogue.

They probably should have had some more action or something to break up those longer conversation scenes a bit, in my opinion.

This anime movie had a unique & scary concept involving language & the subconscious impact of language, it was a bit extreme, but on a low level some of it is true; which is also scary.

This movie makes you think about some things happening now, and that could happen in the future; and this movie also presented some military technology & tactics et cetera that are partly in use now, and some that we will possibly be using in the future.

I can not believe that no one I know has ever talked about this movie, it deserves to be more known & seen.

I did not like the two short scenes of unnecessary nudity, though, and the action scenes are more violent than usual.

Furthermore, I recommend watching this movie, I would give it a 4 out of 5, do not watch it when you are tired though, and be ready for a lot of talking at times.

The end,

  • John Jr
