Synopsis

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.

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

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

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 main male protagonist gets himself involved with supernatural creatures that changes his life forever. Dawn Tsumetai Te and Tokyo Ghoul goes by a story in a world that seems normal but has dark secrets. Throughout both series, these secrets are uncovered through complex mysteries with various plot twists. At the same time, the main protagonist tries to adjust his acceptance to reality. Both series series has horror elements and suspense as the main protagonist struggles o find the truth. I recommend both series for anyone interested in horror fiction and mystery with violent concepts.
