The wraparound jacket on the seventh volume of the Tokyo Ghoul:re manga, which will go on sale on June 17, has announced a live-action film adaptation of the horror action franchise. Further information will be announced in future issues of Young Jump magazine.

The Tokyo Ghoul series is created by Sui Ishida and began serialization in Young Jump in 2011. The original series ended in 2014, and it was continued as Tokyo Ghoul:re later that year. It has also spun off a number of side stories published as light novels and other manga series. The announcement also revealed that the series has collectively sold 18 million compiled volumes.

Tokyo Ghoul was also adapted into two television anime series in 2014 and 2015. Side story OVA episodes were also released in September and December 2015.

Is this true or it just fiction rumors? If its true then, I hope it not as bad as shingeki no kyojin live-movie.

I don't know how to feel about this.. I don't really watch live action adaptions or many asian dramas in general, but I sure hope this isn't as bad as the Shingeki no Kyojin live action.

TK is not profitable enough to invest a long running series in it I guess.

Nooooo. This is going to suck.

And what arcs are they going to do? And I wonder how they're going to do the kagune...

Is it going to suck BIG TIME or is it going to suck BIG TIME?

Now excuse me while I go and wash my eyes with Chan-Wook Park's Oldboy (AKA violence done right)

The anime is already a rushed, butchered version and an empty shell of what the manga is with a wrong characterisation of Kaneki. Can this live action get any worse? Let's find out and prepare ourselves for the "glorious" kagune CGI.

it wouldn't be so bad if the main focus were characters and the story instead of awkward CGI after-effects. sion sono for director!!

anyway, hopes for casting:

神木 → 金木

make it happen, japan. that's just one character difference anyway.

oh no! please stop ruining Sensei's manga. The manga is a literal masterpiece but every adaptation of it seems to be a mess or just boring (the anime, stage play, ova). Ishida is busy enough, who even came up with this idea? they just want to get money out of it even if it means overworking Sensei even MORE. Merchandising is not so bad (trump cards, games, calendar, etc) so why not just re-print some of them if all they want is money? that way Ishida can rest and they get what they want.

Now Tokyo Ghoul is getting a destined-to-be-butchered adaptation for the big screen.....keep these live-action movies coming, Japan. Just keep 'em coming.
I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.

I don't know what makes me cringe more, the Jojo part 3 live-action or this? Anyway this is the nadir for Sui Ishida's material getting butchered.

Gotta wait until we get a trailer so I can judge it better.

but as we all know, most Live-Action adaptations turn out to be cringy shit with unbelievably bad acting.

Tho if TG gets a TV series by western people and if it was similar to "The Flash" in the production value/acting then it might actually be something worth watching

P.S The only good Manga-to-LiveAction adaptation is Prison School
