Tokyo Ghoul Next Season Release Date: TBA
Tokyo Ghoul is an anime adaptation of the eponymous manga that was launched in 2014 on Tokyo MX. A second season of Tokyo Ghoul subtitled ?A came to an end on March 27, 2015. The anime series is created by the Pierrot studio, directed by Shuhei Morita and is based on the original script written by Ch?ji Mikasano; music by Yutaka Yamada. Viz Media has licensed the anime in North America. Tokyo Ghoul is available for online video streaming through FUNimation and other websites.

Both seasons of Tokyo Ghoul have the impressive ratings among the viewers. On MyAnimeList, the first season of the anime series has a score of 8.05/10 based on over 462,400 user votes. The second season of the dark fantasy series has a score of 7.51/10 based on over 311,600 user votes.


The story takes place in the world where ghouls reside among the people. They can't survive without human flesh. Therefore, they're forced to avoid the authorities. Given the fact that any ghoul possesses extraordinary abilities, he is much stronger than a human and thus able to resist human weapons and therefore has an advantage upon human. Another peculiarity is that when a ghoul is excited, his eyes reflect a specific colour. Whereas, in the case of a half-ghoul, only one his eye changes its colour. A half-ghoul could be born naturally or be made artificially. But a half-ghoul is stronger than a pure-blood ghoul. In order to track down the ghouls, the government has created numerous organisations across the world.

A storyline centres around Ken Kaneki, a formerly ordinary guy, who has turned into a half-ghoul as a result of his dating with a female ghoul. Awakening in the hospital, whither he has been delivered, he discovers that he underwent a surgery. Now he is eager for human flesh in order to survive. Therefore, he is forced to adapt to his new life and reside among the ghouls, who teach him how to get used to his new essence. However, aside from his new life, Kaneki should integrate into human society given his new guise.

In Season 2, Kaneki finally accepts his new identity or rather the part of him that crave human flesh. He joins Aogiri Tree, the military ghoul structure. Meantime, the government makes efforts to wipe out all the ghouls in Tokyo. However, this threatens Kaneki's friends. In such a dangerous situation, Kaneki faces with the internal struggle regarding his humanity.

Tokyo MX is yet to decide will Tokyo Ghoul be renewed for a next season or canceled. Stay tuned for updates. We'll keep you informed on the subject!
