This year's ninth issue of Shueisha's Weekly Young Jump magazine is revealing on Thursday that the anime of Sui Ishida's Tokyo Ghoul manga will air on television.
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.
Ishida launched the manga in Weekly Young Jump in 2011, and the 10th compiled volume shipped in Japan on January 17.
