Media distributor Sentai Filmworks has announced the acquisition of 2020’s Cagaster of an Insect Cage. The series will be available on home media March 2021.
Cagaster of an Insect Cage is a post-apocalyptic series where humanity is brought to the brink of extinction by a insect-monsters carrying a pathogen that turns people into murderous insectoids themselves.
You can read a summary of the series from Sentai Filmworks below.
“The nightmare that wiped out two thirds of the human race thirty years ago wasn’t caused by germs. It was bugs on an entirely different kind of scale: bizarre insects that mutate their victims into half-human creatures that rapidly evolve into rampaging giant monsters! Yet, as unstoppable as the monstrous insects seemed, humanity is as hard to kill as cockroaches, and exterminators like Kidou now spend their lives stalking and killing the creatures called Cagasters. As the brief still-partially human phase is the best time to strike, however, exterminators soon learn to distance themselves, socially and emotionally, from normal people. But when Kidou finds himself suddenly tasked with returning a young survivor to her mother, he starts to realize that his emotions and humanity may not be buried as deeply as he believed in CAGASTER OF AN INSECT CAGE!”
Cagaster of an Insect Cage premiered earlier this year as a Netflix original series, broadcasting exclusively on the streaming platform.
