posted on by Karen Ressler
News websites Comic Natalie and Moca News posted but later removed news posts about the second season based on Sui Ishida's Tokyo Ghoul:re manga on Friday. Both reported that the season will premiere on October 9 and TK from Ling Tosite Sigure will perform the opening theme song "katharsis." The posts also shared a new key visual.
The anime's official website announced on Thursday that österreich is performing the second season's ending theme song "Rakuen no Kimi" (You of Paradise).
Funimation will stream the season on its FunimationNow service this fall.
Odahiro Watanabe (Soul Buster, assistant director on Super Lovers 2, Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid) replaces Shuhei Morita as director for the anime at Pierrot. Pierrot+ is credited for animation production assistance. Chūji Mikasano returns 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) replaces Kazuhiro Miwa as character designer.
The first season premiered on April 3, and aired for 12 episodes. Funimation streamed the series with English subtitles. The company also released the anime's first eight episodes with an English dub alongside those episodes' premieres in Japan, before moving to a two-week delay on the ninth episode.
