As we are nearing the show’s airing debut, Tokyo Ghoul has released some tasty preview images for its first episode. The series’ first episode looks as if it is going to start off with a short romance halted by a brutal end.
The protagonist for Tokyo Ghoul (Kaneki Ken) looks like the typical loser-type trying to lead a highschool life talking to his friend, until he meets up with his crush, the glasses wearing beauty, Kamishiro Rize who’s not all she seems to be. The couple are enjoying the night until Rize, using his crush on her as leverage, managed to lure him into an alley and tries to feed on him. All we can tell happens after then is that Ken barely survives and seems to be on a hospital bed, having some of Rize’s body parts transplanted into him to keep him alive. Leaving him with some horrible side effects, thus begins Tokyo Ghoul.
Tokyo Ghoul is set to air on July 4, during the Summer 2014 anime season.
Tokyo Ghoul synopsis from Haruhichan.
The suspense horror/dark fantasy story is set in Tokyo, which is haunted by mysterious “ghouls” who are devouring humans. People are gripped by the fear of these ghouls whose identities are masked in mystery. An ordinary college student named Kaneki encounters Rize, a girl who is an avid reader like him, at the café he frequents. Little does he realize that his fate will change overnight.
