Hello all, I doubt you guys have been wondering what I've been doing since the last time I posted so let me not bore you with it all. The only reason you're here is because Tokyo Ghoul's getting a live-action adaptation; I know I'm excited for it too! Seen in manga Tokyo Ghoul: re Volume 7, which hit shelves on June 17th, shows that a live-action film is going to be here soon.
More information and details are coming later in the Weekly Young Jump magazine where it's published. With 14 volumes out in the first series and seven in the newer series — Tokyo Ghoul: re along with the anime — there's more than enough to create a fairly decent live-action adaptation. It's not what fans were waiting for (or wanted), but are we excited? Damn straight! However, we still want our 3rd season!
Let's not slide off topic though, we're all here to talk about the live-action movie, correct? So let's talk cast — it's one of the most critical parts in making a live-action adaptation and in most projects they get it wrong. I'm not sure why it's so hard to cast a perfect person who looks actually like a character somebody made up, but it is! (I hope you guys sensed my sarcasm; I know they can't always find the perfect actors). So before they kill my delusional thoughts by releasing the official cast, I thought why not share my fancast with my MoviePilot otaku.
Fancast for Tokyo Ghoul
I'll keep it short and sweet. I might add a sentence or two, but that's me being me, so feel free not to read it. You'll be breaking my heart by doing so, but enough with the formalities — let's get to the fancast! Let me know what you guys think — good or bad — I promise I'll only cry a maximum of 6 hours.
Yūki Ogoe as Kaneki
There is no way in hell I would pick anyone else for the part other than Ogoe. He did so well in the stage play that I just have to put him in my fancast!
Hikari Mitsushima as Touka
When I was thinking of who could play Touka not many actors came to mind. So I actually went on a hunt for one and when I came across Hikari Mitsushima I was over the moon. I think she'll do a fabulous job as Touka.
Keiko Kitagawa as Rize
It was so easy for me to cast Rize, every time I ever thought of a live-action Tokyo Ghoul, Keiko Kitagawa would come to mind for Rize, I can't see anyone else for the part (but I'm biased).
Ryosuke Yamada as Juuzou
At first I was going to cast him as a girl, but I hate when studios do such things so after contemplating on who to pick my mind finally remembered Yamada.
Masaki Okada as Hide
I'm kind going out on a limb casting Okada as Hide. I know he doesn't really seem right for the part, but I believe he'd do a wonderful job as Hide. Look, they have the same smile!
Mizushima Hiro as Uta
Hiro would be a perfect for Uta in my eyes. He has that look to him that he can pull it off, plus we already know he can play a quiet but cool character after his mind-blowing performance in the live action Black Butler. He's just one hell of an actor!
Eita Nagayama as Shu
My first pick to play Shu was going to be the stage play actor, but I didn't like the way he portrayed the character. Then I thought about Nagayama. I haven't seen many of his movies, but I can still vouch that his acting skills are on point.
Jiyū Arima as Kureo
I looked around and I haven't found one person who comes close to being able to play this character other than, Mr. Arima. If you want to know where I'm coming from just pull up a picture of him in costume you'll see.
I know we're all waiting for the 3rd season to be released, but a live-action movie isn't the worst news we could've heard.
Will any of you be checking out the film when it's released, and what do you think of my fancast? Leave me a comment below with your thoughts. Thanks for reading and have a fabulous day!
