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.

Nope. You are not the only one.
I also excited to see how they want to make Tokyo Ghoul into live-action.


I don't understand why people nowadays are quite salty here anyway. Am I the only one who feel upset & dissapointed about this? I feel like I'm gonna say 'this is why we can't have nice things' because I'm getting sick & tired of this bullshit when it comes to negative reactions.

I guess everyone has a different side of taste here anyway.. sigh..


When people think about negative, they also give negative reaction and try to reject it without give it a chance. Don't let the negative things effect to you. If you think negative, you will feel upset and disappointed.

Like you said, everyone have their own taste and different opinions. Peoples can say what they want to say but it is up to yourself to judge it:bad or good.negative or positive.believe it or not...

I was about to say,

'this is why we can't have nice things.'

because I'm getting sick & tired of this bullshit when it comes to negative reactions like this. I guess everyone here has a different side of taste anyway. sigh..

I really want this to not suck like I'm sure it will. I don't want any more cancer from live-action adaptations.

YEY ANOTHER MOVIE THAT'S GOING TO SUCK :D IF THEY HAD THE MONEY JUST MAKE ANOTHER DAMN ANIME SEASON ALREADY.

As long as more people die when they're killed and Kaneki become a sicko that eat anyone seen by him, I'm fine

If you do a live reaction to it I will watch. Worst story + worst medium (live action adaption of an anime) is such perfect cancer that I think suffering together would be the best way to go. If you can't do that then a 500+ word review would suffice.
Lol, I doubt anybody would want to watch me do a live reaction/read a rant review but we'll see

classic Live-Action adaptation announcement,classic complaints...I have no idea why they keep making these Live-Action adaptations...


Money that's why. Japan adapts manga into live action, the same reason why America adapts comic books and cartoons into live action.

And just when I thought this franchise couldn't possibly get any worse than it already is

LOL

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

I think it's going to suck BIG FUCKING TIME

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

It has already announced here.

I thought it already got a live-action adaption a year or two ago...?

you're probably talking about the stage play

Jun 15, 2016 4:29 PM by nemya

Welp, this isn't going to turn out well. The second season was pretty bad, and I just hope the live-action film isn't as bad as Root A. I can't wait to see how the kagune looks. (They better find a decent actor for Kaneki...)

Jun 15, 2016 11:17 AM by Kay_Chang

I'll probably gonna watch it to see Tsukiyama in Live Action. Harmony!!!

>Anime is a shit adaption
To make it more worse the live action will even be shittyer unless they adapt from the manga unlike the shitty anime adaption.

I have low hopes for this until they release more info

why can't we have a live action on something that doesn't need CGI, like My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU

What is with these live actions lately?!
Can't the torture end?!!...Give us more seasons of the anime we want instead of these questionable feature films, Japan.

Where is my CANONICAL Tokyo Ghoul sequel? My Re? My season 3?

Cuz we all know this is gonna flop...remember the curse of the live action CG Titans in the AoT movie...what are they gonna do with the Kagune in TG?

We also have that lovely JoJo live action to look forward to as well. Oh boy.

Honestly, the only good live action adaptation I've seen is Rurouni Kenshin. That shit was on fire- cast and OST were pretty much on point too.

idk, how to feel about this... i have low expectations.
