posted on by Andrew Osmond
The film opened in Japan on July 19 2019. Masataka Kubota returned as Ken Kaneki, but Maika Yamamoto replaced Fumika Shimizu as Tōka Kirishima. (Shimizu retired from acting to join the Happy Science religious organization in 2017.) Shota Matsuda joined the cast as Shū Tsukiyama, a character who appears in the manga but was not in the last film.
Anime Limited describes the film:
"Growing accustomed to his new life as a half-ghoul, Ken Kaneki (Masataka Kubota) is determined to protect his new allies at Antiku from the anti-ghoul forces that seek to eradicate them. However, when the infamous gourmet Shu Tsukiyama (Shoto Matsuda) wishes to savour his unique flavour, it's ghoul vs ghoul as Kaneki must fight his way out of the already-grim ghoul society's twisted underbelly."
The first live-action Tokyo Ghoul film opened in Japan on July 29, 2017, and ranked #5 in its opening weekend in Japan.
