What is Parasyte: The Grey about?

The plot revolves around Su-in (Jeon So-nee), a woman grappling with her new reality of coexisting with a parasite, and the relentless Team Grey, a group committed to fighting against these unidentified parasitic life-forms.

Parasyte: The Grey is based on the original comic Parasyte by Hitoshi Iwaaki, which sold an accumulated record of over 25 million copies in over 30 regions and countries with its ingenious imaginative storyline of a parasite permeating through a human brain and controlling its body, and philosophical message.

The manga is described as a sci-fi horror classic:

They arrive in silence, out of dark skies. They infest human hosts and consume them. And they are everywhere.

They are Parasites: strange creatures who must invade and take control of human hosts to survive. Once they have infected their victims, they can twist their hosts’s bodies into any abominable shapes they choose: craniums splitting to reveal mouths of sharp teeth, batlike wings erupting from backs, blades tearing through soft hands. But most have chosen to conceal their lethal purposes behind ordinary human faces. No one knows their secret, except an ordinary high school student. Shinichi managed to stop the infestation of his body by an alien parasite, but can he find a way to warn humanity of the horrors to come?

Parasyte: The Grey debuts April 5, exclusively on Netflix.
