Comment from Shun’ya Shiraishi
‘In the first scene, I already felt like Tokyo Ghoul was loved a lot by director Hagiwara, the cast, and the staff. If one produces something with such passion, it should turn into something interesting in the end. Considering this, it was a great honor for me to become Nishiki Nishio.’
Comment from Seika Furuhata
‘Because I knew the manga, I was honestly happy when it was decided that I would get this role. I tried hard to display the gentle feelings Toka has for Yoriko. From the first moment on, it is really scary and thrilling and the goose-bumps won’t stop. It left a great impression on me how Kaneki is suddenly faced with the situation of being half human half ghoul, his body changing and trying so desperately to live. It is a very touching movie and quite thrilling, so I would be happy if many people would go and watch it.’
Comment from Tomoya Maeno
I was looking forward to working on this movie with director Hagiwara.
I am glad I get to play Kusaba.
Even though I am playing him, I can’t imagine how it will turn out in the end, so like all of I want to see it soon at the cinema!
I love ebiten!
Comment from Dankan
‘I am the one who knows best about ghouls in this world. I am Dankan who will be Hisashi Ogura, the ghoul researcher! Hahahahaha! Ghouls eat humans to stay alive, but Ogura is criticizing people as if he will eat them!!’
