The stage play stars:

Ryo Matsuda as Ken Kaneki

Shōgo Suzuki as Nishiki Nishio

Mitsu Murata as Uta

Tomokazu Yoshida as Renji Yomo

This year's combined 22nd and 23rd issues of Shueisha's Weekly Young Jump magazine is also revealing more cast members on Thursday. The cast members are:

  • Yoshihide Sasaki as Shū Tsukiyama
  • Kasumi Yamaya as Kimi Nishino
  • Maho Tomita as Itori
  • Aya Tabata as Tōka Kirishima
  • Tadayoshi Katō as Yoshimura

Yūki Ogoe played Ken Kaneki in the previous stage play. The rest of the cast members are returning, except for the characters Shū Tsukiyama, Kimi Nishino, and Itori, who are all new characters in this second play.

Isamu Kayano and Chūji Mikasano are returning from the first play as director and scriptwriter, respectively. The new play will run in Tokyo from June 29 through July 4 at the Theatre 1010. The play will then run on July 8-9 at Osaka's Umeda Arts Theater.

Tokyo Ghoul's first play debuted in the summer of 2015, performing at the AiiA 2.5 Theater Tokyo for a week in early July, and then at the Kyōto Gekijō for a few days in mid-July.

The manga is also inspiring a live-action film that will open in Japan on July 29.

Ishida serialized Tokyo Ghoul in Shueisha's Weekly Young Jump from 2011 to 2014, and is now serializing Tokyo Ghoul:re. The two manga have a combined 22 million copies in print. Tokyo Ghoul inspired two anime series, several original video anime projects, and PlayStation Vita and smartphone games.
