As we move deeper into the current winter 2015 anime season, a few reminders for folks are creeping out to get them to make sure they’re checking in on their favorite shows. The latest from FUNimation comes from their series Tokyo Ghoul √A as they’re now streaming a subtitled clip from the show. It’s an interesting clip beyond the show itself though as it’s also the first clip that we got for the Broadcast Dub edition of the season, which we’ve included as well for comparisons sake. They don’t line up perfectly, but for those wanting to do a little spot checking, it’s certainly interesting to compare the two.

The show was directed by Shuhei Morita based on the scripts by Chuji Mikasano at studio Pierrot. Kazuhiro Miwa is working as the character designer for it. The Japanese Voice Cast includes Natsuki Hanae as Ken Kaneki (also known for Shouma Amaku, Daimidaler), Sora Amamiya as Touka Kirishima (also known for Honoka Mitsui, The Irregular at Magic High School), Kana Hanazawa as Rize Kamishiro (also known for Akane Tsunemori, Psycho-Pass and Shiro, Deadman Wonderland), Mamoru Miyano as Shu Tsukiyama (also known for Light Yagami, Death Note and Okabe Rintarou, Steins;Gate), and Katsuyuki Konishi as Kotaro Amon (also known for Kamina, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann).

The original work comes from from Sui Ishida, who ended the first arc of the manga with volume fourteen recently and is now kicking off the sequel manga series Tokyo Ghoul:re. The first season starred Natsuki Hanae as Ken Kaneki, Sora Amamiya as Toka Kirishima and Hanazawa Kanaas as Rize Kamishiro. Mamoru Miyano also joined the cast as Shu Tsukiyama along with Takayuki Sugo, Sumire Morohoshi, Katsuyuki Konishi, Yuichi Nakamura, Toshiyuki Toyonaga, Shintaro Asanuma and Takahiro Sakurai as Uta. Originally starting serialization in Young Jump back in September 2011, the series has done well for a first-time

Plot concept: In modern day Tokyo, society lives in fear of Ghouls: mysterious creatures who look exactly like humans — yet hunger insatiably for their flesh. None of this matters to Ken Kaneki, a bookish and ordinary young man, until a dark and violent encounter turns him into the first ever Ghoul-human half breed. Trapped between two worlds, Ken must survive the violent conflicts of warring Ghoul factions, while attempting to learn more about Ghoul society, his newfound powers, and the fine line between man and monster.
