‘Tokyo Ghoul:re’ Successful Premiere; ‘Tokyo Ghoul’ Season 4 Release Date And More
The third sequel of anime TV series Tokyo Ghoul, titled Tokyo Ghoul:re, premiered earlier this month and is already making waves on television. Based on audience reception of the anime TV series, many are already wondering what to expect in the succeeding installments.
In this season of the anime TV series adapted by Studio Pierrot, fans were treated with an introduction of a gang known as the Quinx Squad. Ghouls continue to pose a problem to the residents of Tokyo two years after the CCG's raid on Anteiku. The terrorist organization Aogiri Tree knows that CCG has been a growing threat to their existence.
The Quinx Squad was created to assist CCG in exterminating Tokyo's unwanted residents. The group works along with humans who have undergone surgery in order to make use of the special abilities of ghouls. The leader of the group is the half-ghoul, half-human Haise Sasaki.
Tokyo Ghoul:re airs in Japan every Tuesday at 10 p.m. CT on Funimation. For anime fans in the US, it airs Tuesday at 9:00 a.m. CST. Hulu simulcasts Tokyo Ghoul:re with subtitles the same day as new episodes air in Japan.
Tokyo Ghoul Season 4
The Tokyo Ghoul:re remains in line with the original manga series of creator Sui Ishida with minimal alterations such as rearranging some scenes. However, some fans noticed that some significant details from the manga dialogue were skimmed in the current installment in order to jump straight to the action scenes. Fans are hoping that the pacing of Season 3 will not speed up further and will remain committed to the original manga story up to Season 4 and beyond.
As for the production crew for Season 4, no changes in the lineup have been announced so far. In the current season, there were major changes in the people behind the anime series. Odahiro Watanabe replaced Shuhei Morita as director. Atsuko Nakajima took over Kazuhiro Miwa's post as character designer. Chuji Mikasana, from the first two seasons of Tokyo Ghoul, comes back to pen the script and provide composition this season.
It is expected that Pierrot Plus will be making an announcement about the release date of Tokyo Ghoul:re Season 2 (or Tokyo Ghoul Season 4) on or before the last episode of the current installment which is slated to air on June 19, 2018. Meanwhile, VIZ Media is reportedly planning to release more volumes of the English translation of Tokyo Ghoul:re. It is currently up to Volume 3. The next volume is expected to drop on April 17. Tokyo Ghoul:re will also release Blu-ray and DVD volumes. The first volume will be out on June 27, 2018.
