Manga Author Sui Ishida Draws “Tokyo Ghoul:re” OP Song CD Jacket

Following the ED song “HALF” by Ziyoou Vachi, the manga author Sui Ishida also draws the limited edition CD jacket illustration for “asphyxia” by Cö shu Nie, the OP theme song for the spring 2018 TV anime Tokyo Ghoul:re. The song was already ranked 5th on iTunes Store and has been played over 1.9 million times on Spotify. In addition, its music video (region-locked to the US) has been viewed over 3.9 million times in six weeks. 


The three-member rock band has been active in the Kansai area, and was directly chosen by the manga author Ishida, who has been a fan of the band, to play the OP song for the new anime. The title of the song, which means “death due to lack of oxygen to the brain,” was also provided by Ishida. “asphyxia” will be released as the band’s major debut single from Sony Music Associated Records on June 6.
