Tokyo Ghoul | Tōkyō Gūru
東京喰種 トーキョーグール
(2014)

Manga
Written by Sui Ishida
Anime
Directed by Shuhei Morita | Written by Chūji Mikasano


Tokyo Ghoul is a Japanese dark fantasy manga series by Sui Ishida.

A 12-episode anime television series adaptation by studio Pierrot aired on Tokyo MX between July and September 2014.

A 12-episode second season, Tokyo Ghoul √A (pronounced Tokyo Ghoul Root A), which follows an original story, began airing on January 8, 2015, and concluded on March 26, 2015.

A third season, titled Tokyo Ghoul:re and based on the manga of the same name, began airing on April 3, 2018. It takes place two years after the events of Tokyo Ghoul √A.

It was followed by a fourth season on October 9, 2018, which concludes the series as a whole.

A live-action film based on the manga was released in Japan on July 29, 2017.



Tokyo Ghoul is set in an alternate reality where ghouls, individuals who can only survive by eating human flesh, live among the normal humans in secret, hiding their true nature to evade pursuit from the authorities. Including enhanced speed, senses, and regenerative ability, a regular ghoul is several times stronger than a normal human, has a skin resistant to ordinary piercing weapons and has at least one special predatory organ called a "Kagune", which it can manifest and use as a weapon during combat. Another distinctive trait of ghouls is that when they are excited or hungry, the color of their sclera in both eyes turns black and their irises red. This mutation is known as a "kakugan."

In the case of a half-ghoul, only one of the eyes undergoes the transformation. A half-ghoul can either be born naturally as a ghoul and a human's offspring, or artificially created by transplanting some ghoul organs into a human. In both cases, a half-ghoul is usually much stronger than a pure-blood ghoul.

There is also the case of half-humans, hybrids of ghouls and humans that can feed like normal humans and lack a Kagune while possessing enhanced abilities, but shortened lifespans. To hunt down the ghouls, several government-sponsored organizations around the world were created.




The story follows Ken Kaneki, a college student who barely survives a deadly encounter with Rize Kamishiro, his date who reveals herself as a ghoul. He is taken to the hospital in critical condition. After recovering, Kaneki discovers that he underwent a surgery that transformed him into a half-ghoul. This was accomplished because some of Rize's organs were transferred into his body, and now, like normal ghouls, he must consume human flesh to survive. The ghouls who manage the coffee shop "Anteiku" take him in and teach him to deal with his new life as a half-ghoul. Some of his daily struggles include fitting into the ghoul society, as well as keeping his identity hidden from his human companions.

Shhhh. I know.

Hoping the blu-ray I ordered has English subs, rather than dub.

The entire season gets you sort of tired with Kaneki's charcter, but its all to lead to the final fight scene in episode 12, new favorite character development in any anime ever, holy shit  :black_heart:

The blood is pretty tame, I mean there's plenty of it but its more after the fact than shown body horror, the final fight scene included, but it's so fucked anyway that it doesn't even matter.

So you don't mind, if I eat you, will you?
