Funimation describes the show as:
A thrilling new chapter unfolds in Tokyo just two short years after the raid on Anteiku. Countering a resurgence of ghouls, the CCG selects young officer Haise Sasaki to lead an unruly team of humans infused with ghoul powers. Known as the Quinx Squad, they walk the line between humans and ghouls to rid the world of its most daunting threat. But no one said it would be easy. Let the hunt begin.
Tokyo Ghoul:re is based on 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:
Haise Sasaki has been tasked with teaching Qs Squad how to be outstanding investigators, but his assignment is complicated by the troublesome personalities of his students and his own uncertain grasp of his Ghoul powers. Can he pull them together as a team, or will Qs Squad first assignment be their last?
