Parasyte (寄生獣, Kisei-jū) is the 55th chapter of the Kiseijuu manga series, written and illustrated by Hitoshi Iwaaki.


Uragami, who's leading a squadron, makes their way through the building, killing Parasites. When they run into Gotou, their attack methods are left ineffective. As Gotou kills the squadron, Uragami is the only one to escape. In the conference room, Mayor Hirokawa is surrounded by soldiers. He begins to berate the human race and calls them the monsters. Becoming more aggressive as he talks, the soldiers kill him, revealing he's a human.
