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!
