Debuting in 2011, “Tokyo Ghoul” centers on Ken Kaneki, a college student who barely survives an attack by a ghoul, a flesh-eating supernatural creature that lives among humans in secret. Taken to the hospital, Ken undergoes a surgery that transforms him into a half-ghoul.

The manga, which ended in 2014, has inspired light novels, an anime series, a pair of OVAs, video games and the aforementioned sequel. The film was announced in June 2016 via a wrap-around band on the seventh volume of the sequel, “Tokyo Ghoul:re.”
