The Tokyo Ghoul Wiki uses a unique dating system to represent in-story events in Tokyo Ghoul. Thus far, the years in which the story takes place is unknown; however, the time and order of events can be determined. Therefore, this system is needed to better determine the sequence of events over several years.

SBI Edit

The Steel Beam Incident occurred in the first chapter of Tokyo Ghoul, the night Rize Kamishiro was crushed by steel beams. It serves as the center of the system's timeline — events and dates are designated years dependent upon its time (in years) from the incident.

For convenience, the following is used:

  • ASBI stands for after the Steel Beam Incident
  • BSBI stands for before the Steel Beam Incident

Application Edit

The year of the Steel Beam Incident — from January 1st to December 31st — is year zero, or 0 ASBI. The following year being 1 ASBI, then 2 ASBI, and so on. The same for the prior year, 1 BSBI, 2 BSBI, etc.
