Long before becoming the infamous "Reaper" of the Commission of Counter Ghoul, a young Kishou Arima was once assigned to attend high school in order to investigate a series of murders caused by a ghoul with a fervent appetite. What was supposed to be a solo mission changed very quickly for the young genius as he became involved with his delinquent classmate Taishi Fura.

When Fura witnesses the brutal death of his best friend at the hands of a masked ghoul named "Lantern," it seems certain he will meet a similar fate. At the last minute he is saved by Arima, giving Fura a glimpse into the world of a ghoul investigator. Although the ghoul escapes, Fura decides to join forces with his savior and classmate, vowing to bring Lantern to justice.

Honestly a really fun short read.

Story (6/10); pretty basic lol. it's quickly-paced and it has a nice little twist at the end but it won't take you more than an hour to read.

Art (9/10); the art is really good, he uses a unique style that adds to the atmosphere of the story, and the fights are nicely done some of it seems like sketches but it all works in a really nice way.

Characters (6/10); nothing special honestly but Arima is pretty cool so is the girl

Enjoyment (9/10); i thought it was a really fun read the art style is gorgeous the story is enjoyable even ...

Tokyo Ghoul: "Jack" is a 7 chapters short story featuring Arima Kosho, the infamous Special Investigator at CCG.

It's only 1 volume with 350 pages total, but it can be completed within 20-30 minutes since the reading experience is similar to a webtoon. I'm pretty sure it is all done digitally.

While the story is interesting, it only shows a single part of Arima in his young days. It's nothing more than a small fragment of his entire life. One may be slightly disappointed for not getting to read more, but at the moment this is the only thing available to us.

Personally I suggest ...

Mixed Feelings
"Jack" is somewhat intriguing, even if it's not necessary at all for the Tokyo Ghoul mythos. The plot and art are decent enough to carry how paper-thin the characterization is. If you want more details, read on.

[Story - 6]

The story follows a ghoul case pursued by the then-teenaged Kishou Arima, the Reaper of the CCG in the main series. He is accompanied by a 'classmate', Taishi Fura, a tertiary character in the main series and arguably the actual protagonist of this miniseries.

The mystery in this story is pretty predictable, but the build-up towards it makes the climax as depressing as what the original TG pumped ...
