Highschool PI

Tokyo Ghoul Jack anime

The anime Tokyo Ghoul √A may over but there's still plenty of story left to tell, even if it means digging up the past. The spin-off prequel manga Tokyo Ghoul: Jack details how Kisho Arima and Taishi Furu met during high school and now it's receiving an OVA adaptation. Try to keep your hunger under control until it comes out later this year.
