So here we have an interesting little side story from Shuu Tsukiyama's high school days when he met photographer, Chie Hori.
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
Tsukiyama's brilliant personality, he is extremely popular with the ladies in high school which brings some jealousy among the men however this idea isn't remotely touched upon as Hori immediately cuts into the scene. This story is mainly about Tsukiyama trying to find the reason why he didn't feast upon Hori that night.
Not the best, but definitely not the worst. It is acceptable to the point where it just flows and you don't immediately notice any flaws.
Brilliant, absolutely brilliant - Tsukiyama's excellent choice of vocabulary, exhilarating french accent and orgasmic screams alone make up entirely for the enjoyment of the show.
We have a good contrast between Tsukiyama's extremely vivid design and Hori's bland/modest yet still interesting "oddball" - the sighs Tsukiyama makes towards Hori conveys so much of a lighthearted feeling in them.
Personally I enjoyed this short OVA quite a bit, not much as much as Tokyo Ghoul: JACK, but still on quite a high level. The voice acting of Tsukiyama is just superb in all ways.
If you're a Tokyo Ghoul fan, you definitely need to watch this.
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
abusive nurse, Shuu comes in and eats a bit of the old man, then threatens to throw Chie out the window, then actually throws her, but finally catches her at the end.
The story isn't anything special really. Same old Tokyo Ghouls, so 3/10
Not much to be said here really. the art is ok. Nothing special but still looks good. 6/10
The music was pretty ok too. I liked the orchestra music when Shuu was eating the old man. 5/10
Shuu is the same old weird guy and Chie is somewhat of a dandere. I found their interactions kinda boring and the characters uninteresting however not annoying and irritating as some of the characters from the original (eg: Kaneki). I did enjoy the sheer insanity and random mood swings of Shuu though. And the nurse was fun as well. 4/10
I like this one more than the original so far. The story's the same and the characters aren't great but as I already said they're not as terrible as the original ones. 5/10
Not the worst so far. I'll continue watching it.
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
his hunger but instead to taste the best of meals, proving why he is a gourmet.
It also explains well to his relationship with Chie Hori in the manga Tokyo Ghoul:re.
I thoroughly enjoyed how Tsukiyama would react next in this OVA. The OVA was good overall and I enjoyed it much better than the first.
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.
For something that
is a little bit longer then your average episode, I think it was good. Despite development not being the best in some aspects it still gets a decent amount right. The story fit very well with these characters and environments. Pinto is a 7/10 for me, as was Jack.
Tokyo Ghoul is filled with action, mystery and of course, a lot of ghouls! Despite the serious nature of the show, there are still a lot of "creative" memes from the internet about it. Below is a collection of 15 Tokyo Ghoul memes sure to make you smile, laugh and be hit with some powerful feels!
