Tokyo Ghoul Creator Sui Ishida Expresses Interest In Choujin X Anime Adaptation


Tokyo Ghoul creator Sui Ishida has sparked excitement among fans with his recent remarks regarding the possibility of an anime adaptation for his latest manga, Choujin X.

In a recent interview, Ishida was asked about his thoughts on the prospect of Choujin X being adapted into an anime. He responded with “I’d love to see it…

While Ishida’s statement doesn’t confirm an official anime adaptation is in the works, it certainly suggests his openness and potential desire for the project.

Fans however, aren’t that keen on the idea of Choujin X getting an anime adaptation particularly due to their dissatisfaction with Studio Pierrot’s handling of the Tokyo Ghoul anime adaptation. They believe that for Choujin X to receive a faithful and high-quality adaptation, it would require an exceptional team and studio at the helm, given their past experiences.

However, with the growing popularity of Choujin X, the possibility of an anime adaptation seems more promising than ever. The fact the manga currently has its voice-over version featuring popular voice artists, including Yuma Uchida (Tokio Kurohara), Gen Satou (Azuma Higashi), Yuka Terasaki (Ely Otta), Toru Ohkawa (Chandra Hume) and Kenichi Suzumura (Batista Hoshi), is taken by fans as a hint that the anime adaptation for Choujin X might be on the horizon.

Sui Ishida is also rumored to be in touch with Tokyo Ghoul anime’s scriptwriter Chuuji Mikasono, which is only fueling the speculation for an anime adaptation.
