Strange 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.

Story: 9/10
Tokyo Ghoul is about a college freshmen, Ken Kaneki becoming a ghoul due to being the recipient of an organ transplant from the notorious ghoul dubbed "Binge Eater." Becoming a ghoul leads to a series of meeting other ghouls and in some circumstances, getting in difficult situation because of them.

Tokyo Ghoul started out slowly with having short arcs as starters, but quickly began to pick up pace. Bits of information is slowly revealed to you, which is nice compared to when a mass of it is given at once.
The tone of the story is serious and has few comedic moments. It is kept read more

Before I start this review please note that this is an ongoing manga with chapter 135 being the most recent one (the translations are not caught up) and i have read all 135 current chapters, opinions may change later on.

Story= 9/10.
It's hard to pin down the specific story if someone where to ask me what tokyo ghoul is about just because of everything is going on. We have our main protagonist being practically forced to live a new and dangerous life (much like Shinji Ikari). But if I were to try to sum up Tokyo Ghoul's plot in one sentence, it would be about the read more

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.
Kiseijuu = Parasyte

Parasyte and Tokyo Ghoul both involve male protagonists who wake up one day... different... One turned into a ghoul... while the other simply had an alien for an arm. And by alien, I mean a life form that has 100% control of the arm for most of the day. Coexisting and dealing with others who are similar to them, both characters have to live in the same world... with a completely flipped perspective.

Tokyo Ghoul is more supernaturalesque/fantasy and more gritty
Parasyte is more scifi-ish and psychological

Both have action and they are both great reads. Parasyte though is not a bishounen read. It's not pretty... or rather... it's from the late 80's early 90's.. so... it's much much more realistic.

I liked Parasyte a lot more than I did TG, but both are great great reads. :D
