It has been confirmed that the second season for Tokyo Ghoul’s anime adaptation series will premiere on January 8, 2015 on Tokyo MX. The first season was aired in Japan from July to September this year with a total of 12 episodes. The manga also concluded in September after its three-year run on Weekly Young Jump magazine. The story revolves around Ken Kaneki, an ordinary college student whose life turns upside down after receiving an organ transplant from a ghoul named Rize Kamishiro. Kaneki becomes a half-human/half-ghoul who must deal with his new life against other ghouls, humans, and ghoul investigators.
Sui Ishida, the creator of Tokyo Ghoul series, published a sequel just a month after the original story ended. Tokyo Ghoul: re began its serialization in October 2014. The series introduces a new set of characters. Another spin-off prequel story entitled Tokyo Ghoul: Jack is currently ongoing.
