Whereas Ishida was credited with creating the original manga for the first season, Ishida is now also credited with the original story concept for the second season.

The first season and manga’s story is set in Tokyo, which is haunted by mysterious “ghouls” who are devouring humans. People are gripped by the fear of these ghouls whose identities are masked in mystery. An ordinary college student named Kaneki encounters Rize, a girl who is an avid reader like him, at the café he frequents. Little does he realize that his fate will change overnight.
