Tokyo Ghoul Creator's Mystery Project is 'Jack Jeanne'
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Tokyo Ghoul creator Sui Ishida teased a new project on Twitter back in January. The tweet showed a Mitsuki Shirota, a character Ishida described as a feminine boy that will appear in his latest project. More project details were unveiled on Friday and revealed that the project is titled "Jack Jeanne" and is made in partnership with Broccoli and Happinet.
The project's official website and teaser video shows seven characters, three in formal dresses and four in suits. Mitsuki appears to be the character on the far right in a blue dress.
The project's format is still unknown. Happinet is an entertainment product wholesaler that includes production and distribution arms for music, games, and anime. Broccoli is similarly involved in game, book, and anime production. Broccoli and Ishida are planning "various measures of development" for the "Jack Jeanne" project.
Ishida left a small message about the project's launch."Hello, this is Sui Ishida. I worked on this for the past three years while writing Tokyo Ghoul. I'm still working on it. Enjoy!" he wrote.
The project's launch will be commemorated with ads outside the MAGNET by Shibuya 109 shopping center and in copies of The Yomiuri Shimbun PR paper in the Shibuya area. The MAGNET storefront will display flyers for the product and distribute one of six coasters at random.
The ad campaign will kick off at all 11 Shibuya outdoor super board ad spaces, the Den-en-toshi Line Shibuya's subway's Ad Circle A and B spaces in Dogenzaka and the Hachiko exit.
Ishida ended the Tokyo Ghoul:re manga last summer after entering its final arc in February.
Viz Media is releasing the Tokyo Ghoul:re sequel manga series, and it describes the first volume:
Haise Sasaki has been tasked with teaching Qs Squad how to be outstanding investigators, but his assignment is complicated by the troublesome personalities of his students and his own uncertain grasp of his Ghoul powers. Can he pull them together as a team, or will Qs Squad first assignment be their last?
Ishida serialized Tokyo Ghoul in Shueisha's Weekly Young Jump from 2011 to 2014, followed by Tokyo Ghoul:re. The Tokyo Ghoul:re television anime included two seasons and the latter premiered in October and wrapped in December.
