Tokyo Ghoul Compilation Album Compiled by Sui Ishida Releasing March 27

02.March.2019 | ANIME&GAME / MUSIC

It has been announced that a compilation album containing music from across the Tokyo Ghoul anime series will be released on March 27, 2019. Titled Tokyo Ghoul AUTHENTIC SOUND CHRONICLE, the album is compiled by the manga’s author Sui Ishida.

With intimate direction and curation by Ishida himself, the album is a collection of the series’ main themes performed by artists that Ishida personally had offers sent to. The list of edgy and conceptual tracks draws a line under the entire series and serves to bestow a deeper layer and understanding to the harsh world of Tokyo Ghoul.

Sui Ishida is known for rarely appearing in the news or across media platforms. But the crafting of this compilation album is accredited entirely to the author himself who has packed his love and respect for the music into it.

Disc 1 includes 8 opening and ending themes from across the anime series and 6 re-recordings carried out by the artists themselves for a total of 14 songs. Select tracks include acoustic versions of HALF by QUEEN BEE and Rakuen no Kimi by österreich as well as a remix of People In The Box’s Seijatachi by yukihiro (ACID ANDROID). Each of these rearrangements have been exclusively recorded for this record.


Disc 2, which is available with First Press copies only, is a playlist of 12 songs that Sui Ishida listened to that led him to send each artist offers. It includes music from Ling Tosite Sigure (with whom TK is the lead vocalist and guitarist), the cabs (whom österreich is a former member of under his real name Kunimitsu Takahashi), and more. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to call this playlist the “roots” of Tokyo Ghoul.


First Press copies also come with a booklet that features illustrations of all the CD covers from Anime Edition copies of previous singles, a conversation with Sui Ishida and all 6 artists, a commentary by Sui Ishida on the Disc 2 playlist, all the lyrics, and much more. This is a must-have collector’s item for any fan of the anime series.


There are extra bonuses for fans to get their hands on too when bought at select stores in Japan. At Tower Records you can get a sticker, at Animate a B3-size poster, and on a postcard illustrated by Sui Ishida.


An artbook entitled Tokyo Ghoul “ZAKKI:re” by Sui Ishida will also be released on March 19, 2019.
