Sui Ishida is ending the Tokyo Ghoul manga in its 143rd chapter in this year's 42nd issue of Weekly Young Jump magazine on September 18. Shueisha will publish the 14th and final volume of the manga on October 17.
The dark fantasy manga 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. Shuhei Morita (Freedom, Kakurenbo) is directing a television anime adaptation at Pierrot this summer, and Funimation is streaming the anime as it airs in Japan.
