Explore the world of Tokyo Ghoul with these pros

Ghouls live among us, the same as normal people in every way—except their craving for human flesh.

Ken Kaneki is an ordinary college student until a violent encounter turns him into the first half-human half-ghoul hybrid. Trapped between two worlds, he must survive Ghoul turf wars, learn more about Ghoul society and master his new powers.

Many conflicts and incidents arise involving the clientele of the café Anteiku, where Ghouls gather. Yoshimura, the café's owner, is harboring suspicions about a certain someone. What sort of darkness will that person bring between those who hunt and those who are hunted? This book chronicles six all-new stories from the Tokyo Ghoul universe.

Preliminary (12/17 eps)
Tokyo Ghoul:Void was a very entertaining read. Each story had it’s own uniqueness which can stand out on their own.

It’s this sense of the stories being connected by a certain case which show that the characters are not isolated from each other. Each person has their role to play in the grand scheme of things. I highly recommend this book if you are fan of Tokyo Ghoul and if ...
