Tokyo Ghoul is hands down one of the best dark fantasy manga ever created, and despite the somewhat hasty ending, millions around the world appreciate the great work of Sui Ishida. Exactly in this regard Twitter reports that Tokyo Ghoul went viral today, April 1st, 2021, according to an interesting fan mail.

User @Saimbtw posted a number of pictures from the manga on his social profile and commented "Tokyo Ghoul deserves a better anime adaptation" and unexpectedly received tens of thousands of likes and an avalanche of comments within a few hours. The numbers show that the fan base is still very active and that many want a new animated customization.

For those unfamiliar with the series, Tokyo Ghoul was serialized in 14 volumes from November 2014 to October 2016, and subsequently received a sequel titled Tokyo Ghoul: Serialized in 16 Other Tankobons Over the Next Two Years. The resounding success of the series also led to the creation of a prequel, Tokyo Ghoul: Jack, two film adaptations and a three-season anime adaptation, curated by Studio Pierrot.

Fan controversy is mostly related to the latter product, which only stays true to the manga in seasons 1 and 1 later transformed into a kind of non-canonical sequel with Tokyo Ghoul √A. Pierrot tried to catch up with a third season by adapting Tokyo Ghoul: re directly, but after a good first half, the anime came back into focus due to speed and animation issues.

MAP recently resumed work on dark fantasy manga adaptations like Attack of the Giants, Jujutsu Kaisen, and Chainsaw Man, and fans have started asking for a new Tokyo Ghoul adaptation. Of course we want to get to know yours. Would you like to see a new customization? And which studio should take care of it? Let us know in the comments!
