Synopsis

Shuu Tsukiyama is a "ghoul": a creature who eats human flesh, and he likes to enjoy his meals to the fullest. One night, while relishing in the premeditated murder of his dinner, Shuu's much anticipated first bite is disturbed by a sudden flash of light.

The flash turns out to be from the camera of high schooler Chie Hori, who presents Shuu with the perfect picture capturing his true nature; the extremely clear shot of a bloody corpse and an overly excited Shuu threatens to expose his ghoul identity, thus Shuu needs to sort out this situation quickly.

After Shuu discovers that Chie attends the same high school as him and is even in the same class, the reason behind his feelings of obsession changes from self-preservation to morbid curiosity. As he grows closer to the absent-minded and extremely odd photographer, he challenges them both to learn more about each other's conflicting worlds; Shuu promises that Chie will come out of this experience with a photograph superior to the one she already has.

*Some spoilers*

So here we have an interesting little side story from Shuu Tsukiyama's high school days when he met photographer, Chie Hori.

Story:

There isn't much to this story but it was interesting to say the least - it revolves around Tsukiyama meeting this "oddball", Chie Hori, who randomly takes a picture of him feasting on a meal one night; Tsukiyama's immediate response to discovering her was to devour her however he is distracted by her camera flashes as she takes some pictures, then all of a sudden Tsukiyama develops some lima syndrome and decides to "befriend" her instead which was an interesting choice.

As expected, with read more

*THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS*

This show isn't as terrible as the first ones.

STORY
----------
It's about Shuu Tsukiyama, the weird guy from the original meeting a little girl, Chie Hori, who took his picture while he was eating one of his victims. This girl is an oddball. The only thing that interests her is photography. She's not at all shocked about the fact that Shuu is a ghoul and this surprised him. So they become "friends". He then takes her to a hospital, tells her to sneak in some old man's room at night and take pictures of what she sees inside. Long story short there's an read more

This OVA i my opinion did better than the first. It did the better in the aspect of character development a the same time keeping me, the audience, entertained.

The main character being Shu Tsukiyama, I enjoyed learning more about a character I liked although at the same time he can be the most creepiest character of the entire anime. It explained well enough to understand the feelings of Tsukiyama the ghoul and how we would interact with Chie Hori the girl who mysteriously appeared in his life. He demonstrated that unlike other ghouls he didnt just feed on humans just for the sake of satisfying read more

Tokyo Ghoul: "Pinto" is the second standalone OVA which follows the story of a ghoul and his "pet".

Personally, I think the story for this OVA is great! It is most certainly more impressive then √A or even the first season. Unfortunately, the art and character development are nothing special. The interactions between Shuu Tsukiyama and Chie Hori are boring. You don't really feel a connection even though that is clearly what is being pushed, a strange friend-like relationship. The settings shown are really immersive. I have to give credit where credit is due for all of the Tokyo Ghoul series. Very atmospheric.
