Much-anticipated second film will be released in Japan on July 19, 2019
The official website for the live-action film project based on Sui Ishida's dark fantasy manga series Tokyo Ghoul confirmed today that 16-year-old actress Hiyori Sakurada is reprising her role as ghoul girl Hinami Fueguchi following the first film in 2017. She is best known as Shizuno Takakamo in the Saki Achiga-hen episode of side-A live-action film in 2018.
Hinami has lived in Cafe Anteiku, which has become a shelter for ghouls, and has shared strong pseudo-sibling relationships with both Ken Kaneki and Touka Kirishima. In the first film, her mother Ryoko was played by Shoko Aida, a member of Japanese duo Wink.
Sakurada says, "Following the previous film, I will appear as Hinami Fueguchi. I was very happy to receive an offer as Hinami, I went to the set feeling so excited. Meeting and playing Hinami again, who overcomes the sad event and becomes an adult a little bit, was like a magical moment for me."
The highly-anticipated sequel is set to be released in Japan on July 19, 2019, just two years after the first
film released on July 29, 2017.
