Sui Ishida's mega-hit anime series, "Tokyo Ghoul" may not release a new installment after all as Viz media is still mum about producing another series. Fans will, however, get the chance to relive the life of Ken Kaneki as a live movie adaptation of "Tokyo Ghoul" is to be released this year. Following the movie release, the L.A. fans of the anime will get the chance to see the film ahead of its world premiere.
After two years of being rumored to air new episodes this 2017, the fate of "Tokyo Ghoul" Season 3 is still up in the air. A lot of the anime's fans have even stopped talking about the theoretical Season 3 as no clear updates are being given by Viz Media.
Following the long wait for the talked about installment, there are new rumors swirling online that Viz Media might have already canceled the production of "Tokyo Ghoul" Season 3 despite previous news that it is only being delayed. Senior Sales and Marketing Director Kevin Hamrick, who was previously misquoted for his announcement, has also not updated the fandom about the anime. There are few talks though claiming that the show will push through once the live-action movie finishes with Ken Kaneki resurrecting with another identity.
While waiting for more concrete details about "Tokyo Ghoul" Season 3 to come by, fans might want to witness the live-action adaptation of Sui Ishida's creation on cinemas worldwide. The movie is set to hit 23 countries starting July 27, but it was recently announced that the L.A. fans will get the chance to see the film beforehand during the Anime Expo 2017.
"Tokyo Ghoul" live-action movie will have an advance screening at the L.A. Convention Center on July 3 at 2:30 to 4:00 a.m. where Director Kentaro Hagiwara and actor Masataka Kubota (Kaneki) will be present. In line with the nearing premiere of the show, "Tokyo Ghoul" released a new three-minute English-subbed trailer which featured the making of Ken Kaneki, half human-half ghoul. The promo also revealed the battle between Ken and Koutaro.
The highly anticipated movie is scheduled for release in other countries in North America, Europe, and Asia. "Tokyo Ghoul" is set to hit Tokyo theaters on July 10 while Berlin fans will see the movie on July 7.
