Natsuki Hanae to Reprise Role of Ken Kaneki in 2018 Tokyo Ghoul:re Anime

One of the most discussed anime news circling the community right now, the popular series Tokyo Ghoul by Sui Ishida will be getting a new TV anime adaptation for the manga Tokyo Ghoul:re in 2018. Voice actor Natsuki Hanae, who previously voiced main character Ken Kaneki in the first two Tokyo Ghoul anime, will return to reprise his role as said character. Hanae congratulated the series for its upcoming anime adaptation and commented that Tokyo Ghoul is a very memorable work for him, and that he will do his best in voicing the character with his full effort.

Tokyo Ghoul has inspired two anime series, several original video anime projects, PlayStation Vita and smartphone games, and two stage plays. A live-action film adaptation also premiered in July of this year at Anime Expo in Los Angeles before its theatrical release in Japan in late July.

The manga series was serialized in 14-volumes in Shueisha’s Weekly Young Jump (Shonen Jump) magazine from 2011 to 2014. Its sequel series, Tokyo Ghoul:re was launched in October 2014 in the same magazine.

Tokyo Ghoul follows college student Ken Kaneki, who underwent a surgery after a date gone wrong to discover that he had become a half-ghoul. Just like a normal ghoul, he would have to consume human flesh to survive. The series follows his struggles to deal with his new life as a half-ghoul. In the sequel Tokyo Ghoul:re, an amnesiac Kaneki takes over a new identity of Haise Sasaki, the leader of “Quinx Squad”, a special team of Commission of Counter Ghoul (CCG) investigators.

Together with the announcement of the anime, a teaser for the anime adaptation has also been released.
