Following the ever popular trend of turning anime into live-action films, Tokyo Ghoul is well underway in terms of production and actually looking pretty promising. The official website for the upcoming adaptation posted the first visual image of the main heroine of the story Touka Kirishima (played by 22 year old actress Fumika Shimizu).
Shimizu-- known for her long hair-- surprised fans by cutting it down to 30 centimeters to match Touka's look. Last month, the staff unveiled photos of Masataka Kubota as Ken Kaneki wearing the character's ghoul mask. The rest of the cast includes Yuu Aoi as Rize Kamishiro, EXILE's Nobuyuki Suzuki as Kōtarō Amon, and Yo Oizumi as Kureo Mado. The film-- directed by Kentarō Hagiwara-- has finished principal photography and is set to open in Japan in the Summer.
