The official website of the anime adaptation based on Sui Ishida’s Tokyo Ghoul manga has revealed the title for the upcoming second season of the anime: Tokyo Ghoul √A.
The second season itself will be airing from January 8 next year on Tokyo MX, before airing on TV Osaka, TV Aichi, TVQ, Dlife and ATX-1 in the subsequent days. There will also be an advanced screening session of the first episode on January 4 at the Toho Cinemas in Nihonbashi.
There will also be a Tokyo Ghoul event running from January 25th till the 30th next year titled Escape from Tokyo Ghoul × Nazomate. The 60 minute performance will have an original story set in the world of Sui Ishida’s manga and will be played out like a survival game.
Additionally, a Tokyo Ghoul themed cafe will be opening at the Animate Cafe Caravan, from January 31 till Febuary 22, and the Kobe and Nagoya Animate stores, from February 17 till March 22. There will be various dishes and meals themed after the series for purchase.
The upcoming second season will be based on a new original story written by Ishida, rather than adapting the remainder of his original manga. The series will once again be animated by Studio Pierrot (Naruto Shippuden, Bleach) and the majority of the cast and staff will return to reprise their roles.
