Tokyo Ghoul S Cast Members Speak at Tokyo Premiere Event

14.June.2019 | ANIME&GAME / MOVIE

A premiere event was held in Ebisu, Tokyo on June 11 for the upcoming live-action film Tokyo Ghoul S which is set to hit Japanese cinemas on July 19. Members of the cast attended the event, including Masataka Kubota who is reprising his role as Ken Kaneki in the sequel movie.

 

The event began outdoors on a specially-built stage. The guests were welcomed by a flurry of applause as they stepped onto stage dressed in chic outfits. Kubota began by calling, “This summer is…” to which fans responded “Tokyo Ghoul!” He stood before the fully-packed crowd and expressed his enthusiasm for the film: “Tokyo Ghoul is the sequel to the last film. It has a sense of realism, but in places it’s also gentle, and in others it’s eerie. I can say with confidence that we have been able to create an incredible movie.”

The event then moved into The Golden Hall where guests greeted the crowd and talked about the upcoming movie. Kubota said: “The cast, including the new character Tsukiyama (Matsuda) as well as Touka (Yamamoto), have all stirred [their characters] in a new way. Because of that, I believe even those who didn’t watch the first movie will be able to enjoy this one.”

 

Kubota, Matsuda and Touka shot many scenes together and mentioned how the three of them kept in close contact even after the shooting had finished.

Kubota praised the song for being simultaneously uptempo and wild which he said was a perfect match for the movie. He also expressed his hope for people to be glued to their seats and fully immersed in the film.

 

Matsuda explained how he tried to think of Tokyo Ghoul S as a romance during the shooting of the film and challenged himself to really think that he wanted to eat Kaneki. Kubota responded to this, saying that the film is packed full of loved from Matsuda.
