Tokyo Ghoul has been a fan favorite since the manga was first released. Then the anime came out which excited fans of the series and newcomers alike. Though you could argue the second season was a mess (or great standalone) depending on who you talk to. Either way the manga turned anime is now getting the live action treatment. Funimation has announced they will be bringing the live action film to select US theaters.
The question comes up every time a new live action adaption of any anime occurs, how horrible will it be? The track record of live action films based on manga or anime is bad. However, everything I have seen of the trailer and photos so far for the new film has me mildly excited. Check it out and tell us what you think. Are you excited for the film? Visit FunimationFilms.com to find a theater near you that will be showing the film.
Riddled with gripping fight scenes and tasteful gore, this adaptation of Tokyo Ghoul brings the popular manga series to life like never before.
Buried in books and a quiet life, Ken Kaneki is all but dead to the world in an age where flesh-eating ghouls live among us. But when his only chance for survival is an organ donation that turns him into a ghoul-human hybrid, he finds sanctuary at Anteiku—a café run by the people he once considered monsters. Targeted by anti-ghoul forces, this safe house is up against a hunger more sickening than their own. When their most innocent members are threatened by humanity’s taste for vengeance, Kaneki will risk life and limb to protect the very world that changed his own.
