This year's 27th issue of Shueisha's Young Jump magazine is announcing the opening and ending theme song artists for the Tokyo Ghoul television anime on Thursday. TK from Ling Tosite Sigure will perform the opening theme "Unravel," and the band People in the Box will perform the ending theme "Seijatachi" (Saints).

Tōru "TK" Kitajima is the vocalist and guitarist of rock band Ling Tosite Sigure. The group previously performed the first opening theme "abnormalize" for the Psycho-Pass anime series. The band's official YouTube channel has posted a preview of "Unravel."

The ending theme will mark the first time the three-member band People in the Box will perform a song for an anime. The band will release its single with the song on August 6, and the band will also release its new album Wall,Window on the same day.

Tokyo Ghoul's 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.

Natsuki Hanae (Nagi no Asukara, The Severing Crime Edge) will play the protagonist Ken Kaneki, Sora Amamiya (THE [email protected] MOVIE: Kagayaki no Mukōgawa e!, Wanna Be the Strongest in the World) will play the heroine Tōka Kirishima, and Kana Hanazawa (Kobato., Steins;Gate) will play Rize Kamishiro. Other cast members include:

Mamoru Miyano as Shū Tsukiyama
Takayuki Sugo as Yoshimura
Sumire Morohoshi as Hinami Fueguchi
Katsuyuki Konishi as Kōtarō Amon
Yuichi Nakamura as Renji Yomo
Toshiyuki Toyonaga as Hideyoshi Nagachika
Shintarō Asanuma as Nishiki Nishio
Takahiro Sakurai as Uta

Shuhei Morita (Freedom, Kakurenbo), the Oscar-nominated director of the "Possessions" ("Tsukumo") short, is helming this anime at Pierrot. Kazuhiro Miwa (animation director on Eureka Seven AO, Gosick, Heroman) is designing the characters, and playwright Chūji Mikasano (LDK) is supervising and writing the scripts. Noboru Haraguchi (Heroman, Gosick) is the sound director, and Yutaka Yamada (live-action Marumo no Okite, Hunter ~Sono Onna-tachi, Shōkinkasegi~) is composing the music.

The television anime will premiere in Japan on July 3.
