Tokyo Ghoul Cafe: Touka Actress Maika Yamamoto Gives Food Report

05.June.2019 | ANIME&GAME / MOVIE / SPOT

In the run up to the release of Tokyo Ghoul S on July 19―the sequel to the live-action adaptation of Tokyo Ghoul―an official themed cafe based on Tokyo Ghoul:re will open at Ikebukuro PARCO on June 6 for a limited time.

 

Before the official opening of the cafe, however, actress Maika Yamamoto who plays Touka Kirishima in the upcoming movie attended a pre-opening on June 4 which was held for the press. She tried and commented on the menu and also gave a talk.

Yamamoto wore the same uniform that Touka wears in the film when working at the Anteiku Cafe. The first item from the eye catching menu she tried was the Kaneki Sekigan Curry, a curry rice dish inspired by Kaneki’s red ghoul eye. Notwithstanding its frightening appearance, Yamamoto commented on the tantalising aroma of the curry and its delicious taste.

 

She then took a sip from the Touka Jelly Drink, a beverage based on the character she plays. She admired its gorgeous blue hue, describing it as cute and Instagram-worthy.

The final dish she tried was the Gourmet Tsukiyama Roast Beef which is of course based on the film’s antagonist and Gourmet himself, Shuu Tsukiyama. Before taking a bit, Yamamoto said, “This reminds me of when Tsukiyama eats in the movie!”

 

She summed up her thoughts on the cafe menu: “I was suspicious of how everything would taste at first, but I’m surprised at how delicious it all was. It was fun to be photographed too. I feel like I can eat all of this as a ghoul. I’m relieved.”

 

Yamamoto was also questioned about her role in the film. She responded: “The film is bigger and better than the last, and both the action and CG is really well done too. The visuals are incredibly cool. Kubota [Masataka], Shota [Matsuda] and all the cast are really wonderful too, so please be sure to watch it!”

 

She also left a message for fans looking forward to the film, saying: “The last 20 minute ghoul versus ghoul scene is of course a highlight, but the drama between the humans and ghouls is amazing too, so I want people to take note of that aspect as well. And the music is beautiful, so make sure to take in everything until the credits roll!”

 

“Before seeing the movie please come to this cafe and immerse yourself in the world of ghouls and then go and see the movie. You might get an affinity [with the ghouls!]” she concluded with a smile.

The cafe will run from June 6 to July 15. The menu is packed with drinks and dishes inspired by the unique and memorable characters from the series. A selection of new official merchandise of the manga will also be sold.池
