Synopsis

Tokyo has become a cruel and merciless city—a place where vicious creatures called “ghouls” exist alongside humans. The citizens of this once great metropolis live in constant fear of these bloodthirsty savages and their thirst for human flesh. However, the greatest threat these ghouls pose is their dangerous ability to masquerade as humans and blend in with society.

Based on the best-selling supernatural horror manga by Sui Ishida, Tokyo Ghoul follows Ken Kaneki, a shy, bookish college student, who is instantly drawn to Rize Kamishiro, an avid reader like himself. However, Rize is not exactly who she seems, and this unfortunate meeting pushes Kaneki into the dark depths of the ghouls’ inhuman world. In a twist of fate, Kaneki is saved by the enigmatic waitress Touka Kirishima, and thus begins his new, secret life as a half-ghoul/half-human who must find a way to integrate into both societies.

Review

Gore is something that I seem to be immune from in anime, because when I google gore into MAL I see shows like this and laugh, this has no gore in it at all and is on the same level of gore as attack on titan, I can’t constantly repeat myself so I explain everything here.

Still this show isn’t all bad and I liked the transformation and life of a ghoul. I was lost at the end and sort of found the ending boring and generic but on the whole the action was ok, yet a bit shouneny and formulated for my liking since it felt like a lot of other shounens I had seen.
