Ken Kaneki, I mean Haise Sasaki will arise for one more adventure.

The latest issue of Weekly Shonen Jump (Issue 49) features the first major staff members attached to the Tokyo Ghoul:Re anime.

Odahiro Watanabe (Soul Buster) will direct the project at Studio Pierrot, with Atsuko Nakajima (Ranma ½, You’re Under Arrest!) providing character designs. Chuuji Mikasano (Tokyo Ghoul, Tokyo Ghoul √A) is in charge of series composition for the title.

Natsuki Hanae will return to play the part of Ken Kaneki in the show, when it premieres in 2018.

A 30-second trailer for the project was released earlier this month, which you check out below.

Tokyo Ghoul:re is base don Sui Ishida’s manga of the same name. The title, which is a sequel to Ishida’s Tokyo Ghoul, kicked off in the pages of Shueisha’s Weekly Young Jump magazine in October 2014. The ongoing series currently spans thirteen collected volumes, with the most recent book hitting stores on October 19.

Viz Media currently holds the rights to the Tokyo Ghoul:re manga. They describe the series as:
