Viz Media Will Speed Up Its 'Tokyo Ghoul' Publications
Yesterday My Hero Academia fans were thrown into elation when they were told by Viz Media that the company will be speeding up the franchises manga production. This was due to the high demand of the franchise and the fact that fans in the U.S. were so far behind the Japanese audience. This information was released on Twitter with all sorts of fans tweeting back happily about the revelation but there weren't only My Hero Academia fans who were tweeting back.
One fan in the announcement asked Viz if they could speed up the Tokyo Ghoul manga as well? With the answer from Viz Media making all Tokyo Ghoul fans happy. Basically, Viz turned around and said yes, however, at this time they still don't have the rights to do it. When and if Viz is allowed to pull this off, the company will let Tokyo Ghoul fans know immediately.
That's a fantastic suggestion! If we get the rights to do it, we'll let fans know!— VIZ Media @ NYCC (@VIZMedia) October 6, 2017
Since the manga was first released by Sui Ishida in the magazine Weekly Shonen Jump in 2011, the franchise has inspired an animated TV series, a video animation, has inspired several video games and now has its own live-action adaptation that was first released in July this year.
If you are unfamiliar with the Tokyo Ghoul series then you still have plenty of time to catch up before Viz makes an announcement about the manga being sped up. In addition, the next season of the anime is expected to be released in early 2018, with Viz Media describing 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?"
