The Best Piano Cover of Tokyo Ghoul’s “Unravel”

tokyo ghoul

The first time I watched the seinen dark fantasy anime series Tokyo Ghoul, I was hooked immediately.  It was awesome!  I don’t care what everyone else say.  I love both seasons of the anime, even if there are a lot of differences from the manga.

One of the most memorable parts of the anime  is the opening theme song Unravel by TK from the band Ling Tosite Sigure.  When I heard it for the first time, I was like:  “Oh my gosh!  This song is awesome!  I have to get this song!”  Months afterwards, I was hanging out on Youtube and by pure coincidence I encounter this amazing piano cover by Animenz.  If you’re not following this guy yet, oh my gosh, you’re missing out.  He’s a piano genius!  I love all of his videos, but my favourite is his cover of Tokyo Ghoul’s Unravel.  Watch his video below and prepare to be amazed.

lsn’t it awesome?  I wish I could play the piano like him.  I dabbled with the piano exactly two times in my life.  First was when I was in second-third grade; second was when I was in tenth grade.  I liked it enough, but unfortunately I don’t have the passion for it.  Oh well.  But at least I do enjoy listening to amazing pianists like Animenz.  He’s now one of my favourite Youtubers.

Did you like this piano cover?  Do you know other amazing covers of Unravel?

  1. He’s one of my favourite pianists! It’s a shame that he’s on a break now but I can’t wait for him to come back stronger with more awesome videos.

    1. I know, right? I’m sure he’ll come back with more anisong awesomeness. I love his videos. He’s a great pianist. I wish I could play like him but that will sadly remain only a wish. . .I’ll just content myself with watching his videos. Thanks for dropping by.

    1. I know, right? Same here. I tried the piano and guitar before but unfortunately I don’t have any talent in them. Oh well. At least I tried. How about you? Tried playing any instrument?

  2. this was one of my favorite anime openings :’)) did you hear the cover of Unravel from all of the actors from Tokyo Ghoul? it’s sick

    1. I know, right? I love this song! It’s so awesome. Can you send me a link to that? I tried to search it but the one I found wasn’t really the actual voice actors. Thanks.


  3. Animenz did a excellent job on doing this song. When I first heard this song, I had to replay it multiple times. Unravel is amazing and I don’t mind hearing again while watching Tokyo Ghoul. It’s true, I barely started XD.
    I want to buy this song but iTunes don’t have the official anime opening. I will probably have to buy it as a CD.

      1. That piano cover was spot on great. I could never do it great like him. I never actually played the piano lol. You’re welcome Arria. I always enjoy visiting your blog. It’s wonderful place share my interest. Cheers :).

      2. I know, right? He’s an awesome pianist. I love all his videos but this Unravel cover is my favourite video of him. I see, but do you play any instruments? I tried piano & guitar before but unfortunately I don’t have the musical talent for any of them. How sad. Aaaw. Thanks so much, Matt. I appreciate it. Cheers!

      3. He is quite a talented pianist. I don’t play any instruments. I did take a music class and learn about different cultures and how they do music. I even did a research paper on J-pop lol. You’re welcome Arria. I enjoy supporting what I love :). Cheers!!

      4. Ahaha! We’re on the same boat. I belonged in the choir in elementary. I still don’t know how that happened. Ahaha! I even sang solo in front of the entire school. I don’t know what my teachers were thinking. My poor schoolmates. 😂

        Oh my gosh. That’s awesome. Really? A research paper on J-pop. In high school? Or university?

      5. You sang in a choir? That’s cute. I guess your teachers wanted to show off your skills or give people a chance. I bet now, you have a lovely voice. 🙂
        I did a research paper on it during my university years. It was quite interesting and fun. 🙂

      6. Uh, no. Trust me, I know when someone’s good or bad when singing. And I’m definitely not good. I’m actually inconsistent. . .well, mostly bad. I think it’s mostly because I’m pretty active and shameless as a kid when performing in front of people so I was the only one they could force into doing it because the others were so shy. Ahaha! I don’t sing solo anymore in choirs or in front of a lot of people. I embraced my introverted nature as an adult and I’d rather be called a killjoy than be forced to perform in front of people again. I’ll probably only do it again if I gain something from it, like a marks for a presentation or something. OOooooooh. That’s so interesting. I never had the chance to research and write about J-pop. I’m kind of envious.

      7. Haha don’t feel bad Arria. I bet it’s not worse as my cracking voice. My voice if I sing is goes up and down in pitching. Just like you, I prefer to be an introvert.
        I learned a lot from research. In one of my topics dicussed, I did mention J-Pop singer named Utada Hikaru. Lol

      8. I can be extroverted too, but my true nature is introverted. I’m comfortable either way, although I get tired easily when in a crowd. Ahaha! Well, now we know that we’re no Celine Dion or Phil Collins.
        Oh my gosh. Utada is one of my favourite singers. She has such a disctinct voice.

      9. That’s cool. I don’t think I can be extroverted like you haha. I don’t really being in crowds or being the center of attention. I agree, we don’t have their voices XD.
        Utada is one of my favorite singers. Her voice is like an angel XD.

      10. Yes. It was just a coincidence. I saw this post on my reader about her upcoming album and I had to do a double-take because I almost didn’t recognize her. She’s so thin! I don’t know. . .maybe she’s on a diet or something. She looks good, though. I was just so surprised because the last time I saw some of her pictures, she wasn’t exactly thin.

        By the way, nice new profile photo. HEhehe. You’re really getting into Tokyo Ghoul, eh?

      11. Really? That’s odd. I maybe jumping into conclusions but I hope she’s okay. I hope she’s not dealing with stress. I heard long time ago she lost her mother. I saw some images and she looks okay. Still, what happened?
        Thanks. I wanted to change it since I did finish watching the 1st season. I chose Kaneki as my profile.

      12. I don’t know. She just got married in Italy. . .she was featured in Italian news, I believe. Maybe, that’s it? I don’t know.

        I like Kaneki better with white hair. . . .But the black hair suits you better especially since I was so used to you using Mikado as your profile pic.

      13. She got married at Italy? That some new news for me haha. I can imagine being it hard to spend time with marriage and do her music career.
        Yeah Kaneki looks cool in white. I might change it once I get done with the second season. I can’t stop thinking that this one I chose look exactly like Mikado. I have grown attached to him that I still see him. XD

      14. I think she took a break when she got married. Even stopped updating her website and social media sites for awhile.

        Well, it’s up to you. I like Kaneki in white hair. Anyway, enjoy Tokyo Ghoul!

      15. Oh I see. Looks like she wanted focus on family. I guess she wanted to distant herself from social media. If she needs a break, let her have it.
        Thanks and I will. Kaneki is cool with white hair. Too bad he barely gets it on the last episode of Season 1.

      16. Me neither. I like her music but I don’t follow her private life. I need to the manga. I did hear the fans say that the manga is different the anime. I want to see how it differs to the manga. I have read volume 1 and that was slightly different than the anime.

      17. To be honest, I was going read halfway of the manga before watching this anime but I decided why not. I don’t have patience and I already missed on joining chat discussions with Tokyo Ghoul. XD

  4. that was so cool, i thought i was going to be able to listen to it and write this reply to a comment i got but i just couldn’t, his hands just breezed through the piano i was transfixed xD really nice cover! i’m not following him bc i don’t go to youtube enough to consider following ppl but i’ve seen some other videos bc my brother is an AVID fan lol

    not sure if it’s just as amazing but one day while browsing i found a spanish cover for this song and just really liked it bc i don’t know a lot of people who sing spanish covers of anime songs lol

    and i agree with you, when i heard that song and watched s1 of TG I was instantly hooked! it was during a time when i didn’t follow airing anime but just this show was too good and i ended up following it (though by ep 4 i couldn’t resist and i checked out the manga LOL) and as a random note, TK has a very distinguishing voice and whenever i hear him it’s like ITS HIM which is weird bc i find it hard to recognize voices if they’re in a language idk xD

    1. I know, right? I think Animenz composed the piano sheet for Unravel himself. So awesome. Ahaha! I can imagine. You just couldn’t peel your eyes away from his super fast hands. He’s just so awesome in the piano.

      Oh my gosh. That was a great Spanish rendition of Unravel. She also does other anisongs, it seems. Thanks for sharing! I’ll check the rest of channel out. There’s also an acoustic guitar cover but it’s not as impressive.

      Indeed. Actually Unravel is the first song that I know of TK. It was only afterwards that I began to listen to his other songs. I like his style. When you hear his voice and way of singing, you’ll know immediately that it’s TK. Thanks for dropping by, Crim. I appreciate it. Cheers!
