Tokyo Ghoul first burst onto the scene back in 2011 in writer-illustrator Sui Ishida‘s dark fantasy manga series. Set in an alternate reality and focusing on ghouls–who must feed on human flesh to survive–living among the normal human population, Tokyo Ghoul soon went on to enjoy an anime adaptation in 2014, followed by sequel series and a live-action film. Now, as the franchise continues to entertain fans around the world, that film got itself a sequel in Tokyo Ghoul S, which debuted in Japan this past July and is now prepping for a North American launch.
To celebrate that fact, we have an exclusive clip from the film thanks to our friends at FUNimation, who are distributing the sequel to 400 theaters across the U.S. and Canada. It’s a perfect entry point into the weirdness inherent in Tokyo Ghoul and a fun moment for fans who are already familiar with the series. But while you can check out our exclusive clip below–along with a pair of trailers that have been released so far–be sure to come back here early next week for our review of the film as well.
