About Tokyo Ghoul
Tokyo Ghoul is a best selling dark fantasy manga series written and drawn by Sui Ishida. It was serialized in Shueisha’s seinen manga magazine Weekly Young Jump since September 2011 to September 2014 with fourteen volumes in circulation as of August 2014. A sequel titled Tokyo Ghoul:re was serialized in the same magazine between October 2014 and July 2018 with sixteen volumes in circulation.
The manga inspired a 12-episode anime adaptation in 2014 by studio Pierrot followed by an anime original route titled Tokyo Ghoul√A. Sequel Tokyo Ghoul:re inspired two Tv anime series with 12 episodes each.
The series has inspired multiple video games, novels along with two live- action adaptations.
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, especially from his best friend Hideyoshi Nagachika.
