"Tokyo Ghoul" Posters Terrify Transit Stations

Oscar nominee Shuhei Morita directs summer suspense anime

Along with all of the returning favorites, a remarkably different anime coming this summer is the adaptation of Sui Ishida's 2011 Young Jump suspense manga Tokyo Ghoul, featuring Oscar nominated Shuhei Morita (Freedom, Possessions) directing with playwright/stage director Chuji Mikasano writing, and Kazuhiro Miwa (Heroman, Gosick) as animation director/character designer. 


With this ad campaign, running in spots like Shinjuku Square, commuters are certainly going to remember that the anime series is coming this season!

Synopsis:

 

In modern day Tokyo, society lives in fear of Ghouls: mysterious creatures that look exactly like humans, yet hunger insatiably for their flesh. None of this matters to Ken Kaneki, a bookish and ordinary young man, until a dark and violent encounter turns him into the first ever Ghoul-human half-breed. Trapped between two worlds, Ken must survive the violent conflicts of warring Ghoul factions while attempting to learn more about Ghoul society, his newfound powers, and the fine line between man and monster.
