“Tokyo Ghoul” Anime and Manga to Have a Second Season and a New Series

Much to the delight of many fans, it has been confirmed that Tokyo Ghoul is going to have its sequel one month after the first manga ended. Sui Ishida first hinted about the “shocking new series” that he would launch in the 46th issue of Shueisha’s Weekly Young Jump magazine. And the “shocking news” turns out to be regarding the sequel entitled Tokyo Ghoul:re, which will start this October. The first series began its serialization in 2011 and ended just last September. Another prequel named Tokyo Ghoul: JACKwhich started last August, is still ongoing. It is a spin-off prequel story that is centered around  Kishou Arima, a famous Special Class Ghoul Investigator. The manga is published digitally by Shueisha in Jump Live.

Tokyo Ghoul also aired its anime adaptation under Studio Pierrot from July up to September this year, with a total of 12 episodes. A second season is also confirmed to premiere in January, 2015.

KYAA! I instantly got excited when I first heard the news! I just finished writing a review about Tokyo Ghoul and I remembered how much I ranted about the last chapter and the mysteries that were left unsolved. And now this! *o* I already saw some scans of the new manga though they aren’t translated yet. It seems like there will be new characters in the series and it is not still clear whether Kaneki is really dead or there will be a new protagonist. I also heard that the story will take place two years after the original series. I’m looking forward to Tokyo Ghoul:re and the new season of the anime!
