Tokyo Ghoul:re Anime Premieres on April 3

posted on by Bayleigh Baker

This year's 12th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Young Jump magazine is revealing on Thursday that the television anime adaptation of Sui Ishida's Tokyo Ghoul:re manga will premiere on April 3. The anime will air on Tokyo MX starting at 11:00 p.m. before airing later that evening on Sun TV, TV Aichi, TVQ Kyushu Broadcasting, and BS11.

Odahiro Watanabe (Soul Buster, assistant director on Super Lovers 2, Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid) is replacing Shuhei Morita as director for the anime at Pierrot. Pierrot+ is credited for animation production assistance. Chūji Mikasano is returning from the first two Tokyo Ghoul anime to provide series composition and write the scripts. Atsuko Nakajima (Ranma ½, You're Under Arrest, Haven't You Heard? I'm Sakamoto) is replacing Kazuhiro Miwa as character designer. Rock band Ziyoou-vachi will perform the ending theme song "Half."

Ishida serialized the 14-volume Tokyo Ghoul manga in Shueisha's Weekly Young Jump magazine from 2011 to 2014, and launched Tokyo Ghoul:re in October 2014 in the same magazine. Shueisha published the 14th volume on January 19, and the 15th volume will ship on March 19.

Tokyo Ghoul inspired two anime series, several original video anime projects, a live-action film, PlayStation Vita and smartphone games, and two stage plays.
