Former baseball player turned delinquent Taishi Fura accidentally witnesses the man-eating "ghoul" known as Lantern injuring his old friend and murdering another. Before the situation gets any worse, Fura's classmate Kishou Arima arrives―as he is actually an undercover investigator for the Commission of Counter Ghoul (CCG)―and forces the ghoul to flee.

Seeking revenge for his friends, Fura joins forces with Arima to hunt down ghouls in the 13th Ward—ultimately aiming to bring down Lantern.

Tokyo Ghoul: "Jack" unveils snippets of life in the past for the CCG's fearsome "Reaper," Arima, giving insight into how he spent his high school days.

"I always wanted to be like them. I wanted to be normal."

Tokyo Ghoul : Jack, an ova I have been anticipating since it was confirmed. And now that I finally watched, I want more, a lot more.

Story (9) : The story follows Fura, who belongs in a gang but then left it. One unfortunate day, he witnesses the murder of his friend by a ghoul of the name "Lantern". Wanting revenge, he and Arima start to go around killing ghouls hoping to find Lantern with the help of, Minami. There isn't much to the story, but it was quite interesting to know a little ...
