Tokyo Ghoul:re Season 2's Promo Video Streamed

posted on by Jennifer Sherman
Season debuts on October 9

Marvelous began streaming a new promotional video for the second season of the television anime based on Sui Ishida's Tokyo Ghoul:re on Monday. The video previews the "final chapter" of the anime.

The season will premiere on Tokyo MX on October 9 at 11:00 p.m. It will also begin airing later on the Sun TV, TV Aichi, TV Q Kyuushuu, and BS11 channels.

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.

TK from Ling Tosite Sigure is performing the opening theme song "katharsis." The band österreich is performing the second season's ending theme song "Rakuen no Kimi" (You of Paradise).

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.
