Tokyo Ghoul Live Action Stage Play Revealed


The intensely gory Tokyo Ghoul has unveiled some of the surprisingly impressive costumes of its upcoming live action stage play, the dark franchise being the latest to get a stage adaptation as unexpected as it is intriguing.

The costumes, provided by the stage play’s official site:














Naturally, questions have arisen as to how the play will pull off the rather physically impossible ghoul powers present in the series, though other similar stage plays have managed to find suitable solutions…

The play will debut at Tokyo’s AiiA 2.5D theater, running from July 2nd to July 8th, before showing at the Kyoto Gekijou from July 18th to the 20th.

    I don't understand the hype for Tokyo Ghoul. It is a normal low gore anime with the same normal pussy protagonist.

    The protagonist isn't a pussy in any sense... Your comment is a retarded fail that only a completely blind hater would agree with. I know in Tokyo Ghoul dude becomes less of a pussy but he starts out as one and still has a lot of pussy in him even after his torture and subsequent power upgrade.

    Same goes for you! Kaneki didn't started out as a pussy, he started out as a normal person who had gone through sudden and bizarre changes that no normal human being should go through. Time passes; he learns how to fight and gain new experience. Eren may not started as a pussy, but he definitely became one. Now I'm with you, I don't like the anime neither, but the manga is kick ass

    Christa is more of a man than Eren is. That's saying something.

    Uh, what are you talking about? Kaneki stips being a pussy halfway through the manga and turns into a psychotic, sadistic monater who inflicts plenty of pain on others.

    He's still a pussy after the torture, just gained some power and suppressed his emotion here and there... He still whines and cries like a bitch. Pussies cry because of pain and being sad. I mean the death of a very close family member of best friend you've know for a very long time, but otherwise crying is for pussies.

    In the manga he stopped being a pussy completely and became a hard-arse Ghoul-slayer. He is still a softy though.

    I read the manga and Sui Ishida (mangaka) is such an amazing author. People would read it from the beginning and find many foreshadowing in the story.

    Unlike most stories, he/she didn't make up the story as they went on, everything connects to each other and the plot twists aren't some cheap "You are the father
    " bullshit. I would say it's underrated and if you judge the anime, check the manga. (The anime messed up so much that I feel disappointed for those watching.)

    Probably because the anime didn't really adapt to the manga, read teh manga, then judge the anime as hsit that it is, and hope the live action doesn't follow teh anime.

    Death Note I only watched teh first 2 eps and knew what it's about and how it will end, worst anime ever, and I mean it, it's only worse than Guilty Crown, which takes second worst anime ever.

    Code Geass was just stupid.

    Attack on Titan actually had a plot at least.

    Obviously on the troll scale, the more reactions you get out of people for calling it shit the better it is!

    judging an anime with 37 episodes after watching 2 episodes is really the most stupid thing to do. yes it's pretty clear from the start how it will end. but that's not what death note is about. the end is completely irrelevant. it's the brilliant fight between the protagonists that made this Anime so outstanding. it's called "Story". ever heard of?

    Can't find someone who can pull of the French campy homo yandere better than Miyano huh?

    Miyano used to do stage play too, he should play himself haha...That would've been amazing.

    The characters look ridiculous, as usual. I don't see how anyone can have hope in that crap.

    We like it BECAUSE it's ridiculous and campy heh. (And because the guys are hot. If you go in the audience, 90% at least are women so that explains that.) I can't blame most people for not being a fan of anime stage plays though.

    Gonna get downvoted but it's true.

    I hope they adapt to manga, not anime, because you know, anime sucked balls.
