Despite delays Gyo is about to be released and the lovely folks at the Terror-cotta label (the guys who gave us Revenge: A Love Story, and Death Bell) have sent me the UK trailer for the anime adaptation of Junji Ito’s weird fiction adventure Gyo. The release date is the 03rd of September. Here are the rest of the details and the trailer:
GYO: TOKYO FISH ATTACK
Giant, killer fish attack Tokyo!
Release Date: 03rd September 2012
The story centres around Kaori who is visiting Okinawa and its beautiful beaches with friends when she find herself caught in the middle of a land invasion by bizarre and aggressive fish which scuttle on land with sharp metal legs. Things are about to get much worse for Kaori as she finds that the deadly fish are spreading from the island.

Running time: 71 min
I pretty much loved what I saw. The action was exciting and the visceral reaction I had to the body horror showed me how involved I was in the film and how good the artistry is. I felt it was a good adaptation of a tricky source and I scored it pretty high. Gyo is out tomorrow on DVD and it can also be seen on the big screen at Scotland Loves Anime.
