In this week’s issue of Shueisha’s Weekly Young Jump magazine it has been officially revealed that a second season of the anime adaptation of Sui Ishida’s Tokyo Ghoul manga is in production and scheduled to air this upcoming January. In addition, it also revealed that Ishida will start a new sequel manga titled Tokyo Ghoul:re.
The second season of the Tokyo Ghoul anime has been officially confirmed to be airing in January 2015. This comes after the official Chinese website for the anime accidently leaked the information late last month. The website itself quickly removed the announced.
In addition, Ishida will be starting a sequel manga titled Tokyo Ghoul:re, after the end of the original manga last month. The manga itself will be serializing at the end of October in the Young Jump magazine. Here is a small preview of the new manga:
Tokyo Ghoul is a manga written and illustrated by Sui Ishida. The series began in 2011 and ended this week for a total of 143 chapters. The manga was published in Shueisha’s Weekly Young Jump magazine and a total of 13 compiled volumes have been published. The 14th and final volume of the series will be releasing on October 17th. A prequel online manga titled Tokyo Ghoul: JACK by Ishida started in August this year on Shueisha’s Jump Live. An anime adaptation of the series began earlier this Summer. The anime is produced by Studio Pierrot (Naruto Shippuden, Bleach) and directed by Shuhei Morita (Kakurenbo, Freedom). The anime ended on the 18th after a total of 12 episodes.
Here is a synopsis of the series from MAL:
The suspense horror/dark fantasy story is set in Tokyo, which is haunted by mysterious “ghouls” who are devouring humans. People are gripped by the fear of these ghouls whose identities are masked in mystery. An ordinary college student named Kaneki encounters Rize, a girl who is an avid reader like him, at the café he frequents. Little does he realize that his fate will change overnight.
Tokyo Ghoul Season 2 will be airing from January 2015, during the Winter 2014/2015 anime season, and a new manga, Tokyo Ghoul:re, starting this month. More information about Tokyo Ghoul season 2 will be revealed at a later date.
