Following in the steps of Neo-Parasyte F, Neo-Parasyte M is an anthology of short works set within the world created by Hitoshi Iwaaki in his critically acclaimed sci-fi/horror series, Parasyte. The original series, published in the late 80s/early 90s, told the story of a teenage boy, Shinichi, and the parasitic alien organism which took control of his right hand. The series has had a surprisingly long and successful life, with no less than three different releases in the U.S. and a broadcast spot on Toonami for its anime adaptation back in 2015. Neo Parasyte M presents a smorgasbord of short stories from various creators, all paying homage in their own unique way to Hitoshi Iwaaki’s original series. Among the contributors are several names which should be recognizable to U.S. manga fans, such as Moto Hagio, Hiroki Endo, and Hiro Mashima. The tales range from speculative tales about what could happen next in the world of Parasyte, to sophomoric comedy tales, and beyond!

Despite ending over a twenty years ago, Parasyte still has some life left in it. It recently received an anime adaption, which was dubbed and aired in the US on the Toonami block in late 2015/early 2016. If that wasn’t enough, the original manga has been released in the U.S. by three different companies! With that in mind, it’s not surprising that Kodansha chose to bring over Neo Parasyte F, a single volume anthology which pays to tribute to the critically acclaimed sci-fi/horror series with. Full of stories set within the world he created, loving satires and more, it features contributions from no less than thirteen shojo creators!
