Tokyo Ghoul:re Manga Gets TV Anime in 2018
Marvelous opened a website on Thursday to announce that Sui Ishida‘s Tokyo Ghoul:re manga is getting television anime adaptation that will debut in 2018. Natsuki Hanae returns to star in the series as Ken Kaneki.
The website will reveal the anime’s staff at a later date.
Ishida serialized the 14-volume Tokyo Ghoul manga in Shueisha‘s Weekly Young Jump magazine from 2011 to 2014, and launched Tokyo Ghoul:re in October 2014 in the same magazine. Shueisha published the 12th volume on July 19, and will publish the 13th volume on October 19.
Viz Media has licensed the Tokyo Ghoul:re sequel series, and it plans to release the manga starting on October 17. The company describes the first volume:
Haise Sasaki has been tasked with teaching Qs Squad how to be outstanding investigators, but his assignment is complicated by the troublesome personalities of his students and his own uncertain grasp of his Ghoul powers. Can he pull them together as a team, or will Qs Squad first assignment be their last?
Viz Media is also releasing the original Tokyo Ghoul manga in English, and published the 14th and final volume on August 15.
Tokyo Ghoul inspired two anime series, several original video anime projects, PlayStation Vita and smartphone games, and two stage plays.
A live-action film adaptation premiered on July 3 at Anime Expo in Los Angeles, July 7 in Berlin, and July 10 at the Marunouchi Piccadilly theater in Chiyoda, Japan before its wide theatrical release in Japan on July 29. The film will screen in the United States from October 16-22.
