Rating: TV-MA
Release Date: 2/9/2016

SUMMARY

 

From Oscar-nominated director Shuhei Morita (Best Animated Short Film-Possessions) and the studio that brought you Bleach and Yu Yu Hakusho comes a twisted new series that blurs the line between man and monster.

Ken Kaneki is a loner. In a world where Ghouls, human-like creatures who survive on human flesh alone, and people are at war, his biggest concern is which novel to pick up next. But when a date with the beautiful and mysterious Rize turns deadly, a live-saving operation horrifyingly transforms him into a human-ghoul hybrid. Now, Kanecki lives on the edge of two worlds: afraid to interact with humans out of fear of his thirst for blood, and hunted by ghouls who want to feast on his uniquely bred flesh. Can he find his place in a society where it’s hunt or be hunted?

There once was a teen named Kosaku

Who was…mildly obsessed with an idol

And, SURPRISE, she showed up at ag school!

Now that Ringo (the pop artist formerly known as Yuka) is a student at Tamo Agricultural High School, she’s ready to ho, sow, and plow her way to the top! But first she has to learn…pretty much everything about farming. On top of that, Kosaku’s best friend, Minori, is waaaaaay jelly of his friendship with Ringo on account of her not-so-hidden feelings for him, and seeds of rivalry begin to sprout between the two. And the biggest mystery still remains: What’s a world famous pop star doing at an agricultural high school?
