Tokyo Ghoul Root A
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.
Tokyo Ghoul Root A
In Tokyo Ghoul √A, monsters live among humans, looking like them while craving their flesh. That is the world Ken Kaneki has struggled to navigate ever since a first date went horrifically awry and transformed him into a half-human, half-ghoul. For months, he has fought against his new cannibalistic hunger and violent tendencies. But after being captured and tortured by a sadistic ghoul, Kaneki has accepted his darker half as his only means for survival.
His choice could not be more timely. Tokyo has become a battleground between humans and ghouls. The CCG, a government agency created to deal with the perceived ghoul threat, has ramped up its efforts to eradicate the inhuman monsters. In response, the terrorist ghoul organization, Aogiri Tree, has made destroying the CCG its priority. And throughout it all, the ghouls who frequent the coffee shop Anteiku merely want to live a peaceful life. But Kaneki, who worked at Anteiku while he attempted to reconcile his human and ghoul halves, makes a shocking decision: he joins Aogiri Tree. Even as his choice sends shockwaves through his newfound friends, many more questions are raised. What is Aogiri Tree’s true purpose? Will the CCG triumph over the ghouls? And has Kaneki truly betrayed his friends and everything that Anteiku stands for?
After watching this anime, I never seen the Weasley‘s Ghoul the same way, since those ghoul living in Tokyo does more and only bang the pipe when it’s too quiet.
I must say that I really enjoyed the anime, enough to make me start the manga series cause I knew after finishing watching it, there were some difference between the two. I still have some volume to buy before passing to Tokyo Ghoul : Re. But I’m not here to talk about the manga, but only the anime.
So we have that mere human being, who have a crush on that girl. He invite her to a date, everything goes well and later, after the date, she ask him to walk with her to her home cause she is scare. Being a gentleman and cause he have a crush on her the guy accept. That So sweet!!!!!! it would be perfect for a generic shoujo anime, if wasn’t of the fact that the said girl is a terrific and dangerous ghoul who had only one thing in mind, eat the guy. Of course it doesn’t goes as the girl planned, the guy escape and both get crush under some pile of heavy metal. Normally no one would survive to that, but of course it’s an anime so fuck the logic, the guy miraculously survive after they transplant some of the female ghoul organs into him. Haha now the guy is fucked. The dude is Ken Kaneki, university student studying the Japanese Literature (what a nerd), and he have to deal with the fact he his half-ghoul. At first he didn’t to believe it, he refuse to eat human flesh, but he later realize that he will not have the choice to do it. His friends are in danger and he need to become strong in order to protect them, even if for that he need to be part of the bad guy group.
This series as a lot a nice characters and each of the own struggle. My favorite is most probably Ken Kaneki he is the one that change the most trough the series, of course you will say, it’s the main character. But they didn’t have to make him take such a drastic turn. Yet they did it and it’s for the best in my opinion, cause it really show how disparate he is to help his friend. Tokyo Ghoul not only have a good set of character, but great fighting scene.
And if this is not enough, the opening, Unravel performed by T.K from Ling Toshite Sigure, is one of the best I ever hear.
I know it’s from the manga, but everyone one need to see how Ken is ripped, I mean come on look at those abs
