Rumor: Tokyo Ghoul gets a Anime Remake – Will it finally bring justice to fans?

Rumors say Tokyo Ghoul gets a anime remake

Tokyo Ghoul is the only show that does not hold back when it comes to gore. It would also not be accurate if not polite to say that Tokyo Ghoul was a bad adaptation of the manga, although usual anime watchers do commonly use the words “poor”, “terrible” and more when they hear of the show. As per rumors, Tokyo Ghoul gets a anime remake and could this finally bring some justice to the real fans?

During the 2010s, the Tokyo Ghoul anime got a lot of criticism rather than praise. This dark fantasy series is based on Sui Ishida’s manga, which was published in Weekly Young Jump magazine from 2011 to 2014, and is known for its mature themes that goes deep into human pysche.

Rumors say that Tokyo Ghoul gets a Anime remake due to it’s upcoming 10th anniversary

Word around the internet is that a new web domain has been reportedly registered for Tokyo Ghoul, which could be gearing up for its big 10th anniversary of the series.

After this news came out, manga hub account @MangaMoguraRE on X (previously Twitter), brought attention to this development of an upcoming Tokyo Ghoul anime remake, suggesting that this website might be connected to a special project celebrating it’s 10th anniversary.

But in the same tweet, the admin lets fans know that there’s been no official announcement yet. Plus, it might also be a little too early to know exactly what the anniversary project might involve.

Fans hope that Tokyo Ghoul should get similar treatment as FMAB with this remake

  • Some dedicated fans of Tokyo Ghoul are now hoping that the series might get a better treatment if it does something like the Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood.
  • With fans on X saying that: “If this is a Tokyo Ghoul “Brotherhood” situation, this may be the greatest news in a while,” referring to how Brotherhood was a faithful adaptation of the manga following the 2003 series, which took a different path.

As Brotherhood shows exactly why Fullmetal Alchemist deserved its second chance, you might also want to give a chance to read our every-Monday Anime Newsletter, that provides you some of the most anime-exclusive content that you will ever find on the internet.

The show had a complete collapse of writing in the latter half of the series, and it seemed to look like a huge waste of potential, especially considered how incredible the original manga was.

Thankfully, it seemed that everyone understood this sentiment and everyone agreed that Fullmetal Alchemist was special. So, years later, the series came back in animated form for another, with a more accurate go around. Thus, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood was born.
