Synopsis

Who needs school, who needs baseball, and who needs friends? That's the attitude of high school delinquent, Taishi Fura, who became a loner after falling out with his peers. One day, he witnesses the brutal attack of a ghoul, which left one of his former friends in the hospital and the other dead. Determined to avenge them, Fura decides to pursue the man-eating monster.

His efforts allow him to cross paths with Kishou Arima, a quiet student who also attends his high school. Arima, however, is no ordinary student. Despite his young age, he is a full-fledged investigator of the CCG, a government task force that strives to deal with the ghoul threat. Together, Fura and Arima hunt down the ghoul, known as Lantern, but it soon becomes apparent the monster may be closer than anyone suspects.

In this side story, Tokyo Ghoul: "Jack" offers a glimpse into the past of Kishou Arima, well before he ever became the CCG's feared God of Death.

If only Tokyo Ghoul √A was this good...
This short OVA tells the back story of Arima who appears in the second season of Tokyo Ghoul, and was honestly a fascinating clip of the Tokyo Ghoul world. Although it is recommended that you watch both seasons of TG (Tokyo Ghoul) before touching this, I thought that it stood firmly as its own interesting piece, with a defined character.

To begin, I'll discuss the artwork, sound, and story as a whole. I would argue that the artwork has indeed changed slightly from the televised versions of TG, and it gave it a very different "atmosphere." For the read more

"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 read more

My first ever and very simple review of this OVA. All I can say is thank you Studio Pierrot, but I still don't forgive you for Root A. They did a 180 from Root A and did not butcher Ishida Sui's work at all!

Tokyo Ghoul: Jack's story, art, and characters are all beautifully adapted from the manga for our viewing pleasure. The OST is also completely brand new and fitting! You will not, I repeat, you will NOT be disappointed in by the Tokyo Ghoul: Jack OVA adaptation.

The only possible downfall is that it's only 30 minutes long! Overall enjoyment is 10/10.

P.S. No read more
