You can add Tokyo Ghoul to the list of recent live-action manga and anime adaptations that includes Ghost in the Shell, Attack on Titan, Fullmetal Alchemist, and Death Note. The following trailer doesn’t give much away in only 30-seconds, but the appearance of Ken Kaneki is probably enough to pique the interest of fans.
If you are unfamiliar, Funimation describe the story of Tokyo Ghoul thusly:
“In modern day Tokyo, society lives in fear of Ghouls: mysterious creatures who look exactly like humans, yet hunger insatiably for their flesh. None of this matters to Ken Kaneki, a bookish and ordinary young man, until a dark and violent encounter turns him into the first ever Ghoul-human half breed. Trapped between two worlds, Ken must survive the violent conflicts of warring Ghoul factions, while attempting to learn more about Ghoul society, his newfound powers, and the fine line between man and monster.”
Tokyo Ghoul hits theaters in Japan on July 29, 2017.
