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.
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.
