No 'Tokyo Ghoul' Season 3 Yet; Viz Media Interview 'Misquoted'
"Tokyo Ghoul" season 3 is lit! Or not. Fan celebrations on social media have been cut short after Viz Media clarified there is no season 3 for the hit dark fantasy series yet. Earlier, Viz media senior director of sales and marketing, Kevin Harmic spoke of a new season of "Tokyo Ghoul" in an interview. Unfortunately, it was just a false alarm. Hours after the report, Viz Media stated Harmic misspoke or was misquoted about the announcement.
In a recent interview, Harmic talked to ICv2 about this year's anime projects. "Nothing that's been recently released, but One Punch Man is coming back on with season two. There's going to be another season of Tokyo Ghoul coming shortly. Later in the year, those would be the bigger releases on the anime side," Harmic said. There is no official announcement yet for "Tokyo Ghoul" season 3 in Japan.
The company later clarified his statement. Talking to Anime News Network, the company said Harmic "misspoke or was misquoted" about a an upcoming "Tokyo Ghoul" anime season. It is not Ken Kaneki and co. but the heroes of U.A. High making a comeback. "My Hero Academia" season 2 was announced in the finale of season 1 and is scheduled to premiere this March.
Sui Ishida's original "Tokyo Ghoul" manga was serialized in Weekly Young Jump from September 2011 to September 2014. A second manga installment Tokyo Ghoul:re started in October 2014. The series has since inspired two anime series both with 12 episodes. The first season aired in July 2014 Tokyo Ghoul √A aired in January 2015.
"Tokyo Ghoul" season 3 is set to continue with an amnesiac Ken Kaneki living a new identity as Haise Saseki, the leader of the Quinx Squad, a team composed of half-ghouls and half-humans. With Viz Media's clarification, it would be easy to conclude that the season 3 won't be airing this year.
