Funimation Films recently announced its acquisition of the live action Tokyo Ghoul movie, directed by Kentarō Hagiwara and starring Masataka Kubota. Funimation will release the film in North American theatres in Japanese with English subtitles, with dates for the theatrical release coming in the near future. A September 21st date is teased at the end of the trailer.
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.”
Tokyo Ghoul opened July 28, 2017, in Japan.
