TK from Ling Tosite Sigure performs opening theme

An event for the second season based on Sui Ishida's Tokyo Ghoul:re manga confirmed the October 9 premiere date and details on the opening theme song on Sunday. TK from Ling Tosite Sigure will perform the opening theme song "katharsis." The website also reposted a new key visual.

The season will premiere on the Tokyo MX station on Tuesday, October 9 at 11:00 p.m. It will then start on the Sun TV, TV Aichi, TV Q Kyuushuu, and BS11 channels.

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). The Comic Natalie and Moca News websites briefly posted the premiere date, the opening theme song details, and the new visual on Friday.

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.

Ishida serialized Tokyo Ghoul in Shueisha's Weekly Young Jump magazine from 2011 to 2014, before serializing Tokyo Ghoul:re. The sequel manga ended in July.
