Tokyo Ghoul is a Japanese anime series, adapted from the manga series of the same name by Sui Ishida. The series was produced by Pierrot and premiered in Japan on Tokyo MX between July 4, 2014 and September 19, 2014. A second season, titled Tokyo Ghoul √A (Root A) aired in Japan between January 9, 2015 and March 27, 2015.

Funimation licensed the series for streaming and home video distribution in North America. The series' English dub premiered on Adult Swim's Toonami block on March 25, 2017, replacing One Piece.[1] Both seasons of the series are scheduled to air on Toonami, according to showrunner Jason DeMarco from Toonami Preflight.

PlotEdit

In modern day Tokyo, society lives in fear of Ghouls: mysterious creatures that 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.

CharactersEdit

Ken Kaneki — a 19-year-old university freshman that receives an organ transplant from Rize, who was trying to kill him before she was struck by a fallen I-beam and seemingly killed. After the operation Kaneki develops ghoul-like tendencies and characteristics, and his rationality begins to wane. As one that now doesn't belong to humans or ghouls he struggles to keep his ghoul identity secret, always fighting against his ghoul side while trying to continue to live like a normal human. He loves to read and is normally quiet and reserved but can also be calculating when fighting. He has a bad trait of easily trusting strangers which sometimes puts him in life-threatening situations.
