SynopsisStrange murders are happening in Tokyo. Due to liquid evidence at the scene, the police conclude the attacks are the results of 'eater' type ghouls. College buddies Kaneki and Hide come up with the idea that ghouls are imitating humans so that's why they haven't ever seen one. Little did they know that their theory may very well become reality.

Ajin has slightly better art, and isslightly darker than tokyo ghoul.
Both have great world building and focus on the main character 'becoming a monster'.
Once you get passed the first chapter of tokyo ghoul both hold your attention.
The story, atmosphere, themes, and characters in both Tokyo Ghoul and Ajin are similar in my opinion.
I must clear the air from the other Ajin review. Ajin is more shounen then seinen, and the art gives it much more of that feel too. I saved Ajin to read after TG because of the recommendation saying the first chapter of TG was slower but this was not the case. I don't even think Ajin is darker. I much preferred Tokyo Ghoul. With that said I think it's worth it to try reading Ajin. Both have monsters in human form, gore, and relations between monsters and humans that are fairly interesting, and monster-monster interpersonal relationships. Ajin took longer for me to really get into it, which is the opposite of what the other person said. But I'm all caught up as of writing this review and I'm definitely into it now. Sadly, Tokyo Ghoul has cannibalism which was a major attraction for me, but Ajin I made it through on its own merits well enough, so hopefully you'll think to give it a try!
Both manga are similar as they explore, the dark side of human nature .
both of these manga are about Demi- human , While tokyo Ghoul is about a half human and half ghoul , Ajin is about a boy who find out he a immortal Ajin .
While the art in Ajin is better , the story and atmosphere in Tokyo ghoul is darker and better .
their both good read so read them if you get the chance
In both of this mangas :
+ Both of the main characters become monsters,
+ Both of this monsters eat humans,
+ In both of the mangas there are people investigating the monsters (investigators).
- In Pupa the main character can transform into a monster, and in Tokyo Ghoul is only the "kagune".
