Anime fans will see Tokyo Ghoul adapted into a live-action feature film, with Kentarō Hagiwara directing Masataka Kubota (live-action Death Note, Mars, “Photo Braver 7” television series) playing the protagonist, Ken Kaneki, and Fumika Shimizu (live-action My Neighbor Seki, HK/Hentai Kamen, Kamen Rider Fourze, Mare) playing the heroine, Tōka Kirishima.
Viz publishes the manga in North America, and it describes the story:
Ghouls live among us, the same as normal people in every way – except their craving for human flesh. Shy Ken Kaneki is thrilled to go on a date with the beautiful Rize. But it turns out that she’s only interested in his body – eating it, that is. When a morally questionable rescue transforms him into the first half-human half-Ghoul hybrid, Ken is drawn into the dark and violent world of Ghouls, which exists alongside our own.
Here’s the first trailer for the film opening July 29th in Japan.
