TOKYO GHOUL Sets An October Limited Theatrical U.S. Release From Funimation Films

It's been a bustling year with Japanese movie adaptations, and not for nothing either with the successes that have emerged. Such is what Anniversary helmer Hagiwara Kentaro brought with Ishida Sui's 2011 horror manga, Tokyo Ghoul, which became well received in Asia.

It also earned praise from viewers and fans this summer at Anime Expo in Los Angeles. Fumination Films held that screening and I reckon they couldn't be prouder for it, now setting a timetable for limited theatrical engagements from October 16 through 22 in select U.S. theaters.
Riddled with gripping fight scenes and tasteful gore, this adaptation of Tokyo Ghoul brings the popular manga series to life like never before. Buried in books and a quiet life, Ken Kaneki is all but dead to the world in an age where flesh-eating ghouls live among us. But when his only chance for survival is an organ donation that turns him into a ghoul-human hybrid, he finds sanctuary at Anteiku—a café run by the people he once considered monsters. Targeted by anti-ghoul forces, this safe house is up against a hunger more sickening than their own. When their most innocent members are threatened by humanity’s taste for vengeance, Kaneki will risk life and limb to protect the very world that changed his own.
Actor Kubtoa Masataka stars with actress Shimizu Fumika with Aoi Yu, Suzuki Nobuyuki and Oizumi Yo also starring. Watch the new teaser and stay tuned for an official trailer.
