From Oscar-nominated director Shuhei Morita and the studio that brought you Bleach and Yu Yu Hakusho. The break out anime hit is coming to Blu-Ray and DVD this September. Licensed by FUNimation, the first season will have a collectors edition and basic edition but any fan of the series is going to eye the collectors edition. Truth be told, I am thrilled FUNimation has this license. Unlike other companies (*cough* Aniplex), the pricing for each edition is rather reasonable.
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.
The features of all 3 editions include the items below, but the limited edition will have an upgraded case that we assume (not confirmed) would house both seasons of the show once Root A is released on Blu-Ray. The collectors edition as pictured above includes a really nice collectors case, 60-page art book, 40-page journal, fabric poster and 4 art cards.
