Two years have passed since the CCG's raid on Anteiku. Although the atmosphere in Tokyo has changed drastically due to the increased influence of the CCG, ghouls continue to pose a problem as they have begun taking caution, especially the terrorist organization Aogiri Tree, who acknowledge the CCG's growing threat to their existence.
The creation of a special team, known as the Quinx Squad, may provide the CCG with the push they need to exterminate Tokyo's unwanted residents. As humans who have undergone surgery in order to make use of the special abilities of ghouls, they participate in operations to eradicate the dangerous creatures. The leader of this group, Haise Sasaki, is a half-ghoul, half-human who has been trained by famed special class investigator, Kishou Arima. However, there's more to this young man than meets the eye, as unknown memories claw at his mind, slowly reminding him of the person he used to be.
Tokyo Ghoul:re was the 10th best-selling manga series in Japan in 2015 with an estimated sales of 3,758,541 copies sold.
The series has been published in English by VIZ Media since October 17, 2017. It is also published in Spanish by Norma Editorial since June 23, 2016; in German by Kazé since September 1, 2016; in Polish by Waneko since August 14, 2017; and in Portuguese by Panini Editorial since December 15, 2017.
Alright, so I read the whole manga after watching the anime and I LOVED IT. I start reading the first couple of chapters and to be honest, I had to adjust to it. I read the first chapters a couple of times to realize what's going on. After I had finally got what was going on, I now loved the story. Its great that this is around 2 years after the Anteiku Raid. So many questions still unanswered since that latest chapter was 25. This follows Haise Sasaki (who looks almost exactly like Kaneki), a CCG investigator and the supervisor of the newly formed Quinx
Squad, which are humans that have built-in quinques. Old characters emerge, but the new characters so far are very interesting. The art is the same from the original manga, which is great. I enjoyed EVERY chapter. I will conclude this review by saying this, it will ONLY GET BETTER. So far, its another masterpiece in the making.
Tokyo Ghoul is one of the more prominent figures in the Anime/Manga industry as of late. With the two anime shows showing in the last year, and the original story ending late last year. Tokyo Ghoul:re is the second manga by the author, Sui Ishida, and the continuation of the story which takes place a few years after the first. It is full of everything the first manga series brought to the table. The author certainly has not lost an edge in the years.
The original story was an absolute masterpiece. Everything tying together, with certain what if moments and twists sprawled out throughout every
single chapter. The developments and maturing of characters seemed to run off the page and made you experience something that is real. These characters bloomed with life and vivid details. :re takes this concept and continues it seamlessly through the time skip, and notably brings forth some really interesting changes in characters we came to love in the first manga, as well as new characters that we come to enjoy that were not previously involved. The reason why this rating is in an 8 range is because the story itself hasn't had that much happen in it, with only the real "IT'S HAPPENING" moment starting around the recent chapters I have read at this time (27-29). This isn't to say the story itself isn't impeccable already with plenty of really intriguing moments. Even recently a character we saw in the previous manga, coming back in a way I don't think anyone even anticipated. There just isn't enough of the story to rate accurately yet. In the future this could be subject to change as more moments and broader arches come into play, with character developments of course.
Ishida is one of those manga artists that know how to portray emotion and passion into the paper he draws on. As mangaka, they tell their story not just through the words and spoken dialogue, but the images being presented. This allows the reader to construct a story within their mind, much like novels do. The difference being, novels are done with words, manga is done with images. The story is beautifully drawn, and absolutely mesmerizing at certain high points. The characters all seem to have their own aura when watching them go about this crazy world Ishida is painting. Each one with their own unique characteristics and styles. Their own images, set apart from others. Furthering the relation the reader can express while glancing across the black and white surface. The art makes the characters come alive.
Much like the story portion, we simply do not know enough about the characters at this point to make any real judgement calls. The characters we do know about however, have really come a huge way from the first series. The developments that now span two different series, tie together in a way that are so satisfying for the reader with their own new quirks. The uniqueness of even the "throwaway" characters really comes to mind, especially in the recent Nutcracker portion of the story. Ishida being the master he is, paints this character in a unique light and puts so much mood and feelings into the short amount of time the character is in the spotlight, all done on a few short pages. Many other stories in a lot of other mediums seem to always have a copy paste method of characters. The whole "seen it all before" stereotype that we all come to expect from certain stories. But Ishida is adept at not falling victim to this ploy in his works. Even if you think you know the character through and through, something surprises you about them. And to that I give so much credit to the story as a whole. Hopefully this trend continues into the later chapters.
Tokyo Ghoul is one of the only series of mangas I have actually sat down and read through and through. The hook of the story in the first few chapters of the first manga really packed a huge punch into my interests, a typical non-manga reader. Even today, the only manga I look forward to every week for release is :re. The story here in :re like the original knows how to appeal to the person's life. Their feelings. Their struggles. Because let's be honest, many of us don't have perfect lives. We all experience some bad. Some tragedy. And Tokyo Ghoul plays onto this fact. It shows you tragedy. It lets you know that people are out there. We are all out there. Living a life. One life. And in that fact, we all have some weight to bear. It brings a huge down to earth feeling to the reader, that many can really relate to. Life isn't always a shounen after all.
It's hard to rate a story fully without seeing it in it's completion. At the time of making this, I am currently up to chapter 29. With a lot more story and chapters awaiting in the coming weeks, months, possibly years, I will edit this review as it sees fit. Much of the perception of this is hinged on the fact that the person has read the prequel to this story. Highly recommend doing such, because you cannot truly grasp everything in this story without the background and the perception the first series gave to the reader. For now, the story cannot be perfect or close to it. Too much needs to be done before rating it that high. For now though, an 8 is a good place to put it for all that we have now. Looking forward to the future of this series.
Tokyo ghoul: re is the official sequel to the well claimed and popular Tokyo ghoul, & well after that ending that blew our minds with chapter 143, we were left with a great cliffhanger, gladly the sequel continues the series just after a short period of time.
So yeah, Spoiler alert! if you didn't finish TG yet!
So now we're introduced to Haise Sasaki, a rank 1 ghoul investigator, that is a half-ghoul & his squad the Quinx that consist of other half-ghouls, whom are: Tooru Mutsuki, Kuki Urie, Ginshi Shirazu & Saiko Yonebayashi. well, this quinx squad was formed to make a ghoul investigator that could
surpass Kishou Arima (Wish is a godamn god for fuck's sake).
Anyways, we later know, after a couple of chapters that Haise is actually Ken Kaneki, but for some reason, he doesn't wanna be his old self even tho he knows about it, & he struggles to fight it when he's is in tough situations.
Well, all the other characters from the first part get their screen time like: Hinami, Ayato, Naki, Touka (even if she's kinda useless, at this point), Suzuya...
I totally recommend this manga (even if it's kinda slow at times), it's a rare gem, & the readers of the first part will sure love it
Like many people, I discovered Tokyo Ghoul after the Studio Pierrot’s adaptation. I had fallen in love with the series and started to read the manga. I’m glad I did so.
After the baffling conclusion which our main character gets "killed", we are presented 3 months later to a sequel. The premise was simple. The story would take place 3 years after the Anteiku raid.
The beginning of the manga could be a little bit out of place for old fans. The slow pacing, the environment and the new personality of our mc
seems very different from the dark tone and pacing we were used to in the prequel. Also, we are constantly presented to new characters and old faces that had little screentime in the original. It's normal to get lost, not knowing who is who.
The amount of characters caused arcs such as Auction and Rue/Third Cochlea Raid feel kinda messy. The chapters tended to focus on many different events in the same chapter. However, reading the chapters in one go makes the reading become smoother. It's as if the author was expecting the readers not to read it weekly. However, that's not the case since Ishida has overused misleading cliffhangers during the Rue Island part, which its usages only makes sense to weekly readers.
However the story has never failed to deliver. We had massive character development with the main characters, the story is always connecting itself to things that often pass by unnoticed by "regular" readers like me, the amount of symbolism, the psychological issues... Everything was and is very hyping!
Also, the way that Ishida nonchalantly touches dark themes really appreciates me. He manages to revolve about many different themes in just one manga! It's very interesting!
On the other hand, the major problem I and many other fans have with TG is the fake death move that the author constantly makes. You can often feel disappointed or angry when characters that were supposed to be dead pop up alive somehow. This makes the battles lose their 'tention" sometimes because you know there are high chances that the characters involved are probably ending up alive.
To sum up, Tokyo Ghoul :re is a sequel that has some minor problems that could be annoying, yet, the hype of the fights, the character developments, the world building, the revelations, the charisma of the characters, the amazingly written story and it's dark tone are what amuse me and makes me regard it as my favorite manga series.
Just like some female anime characters, male characters also tend to have adorable traits. If you think that cuteness is only reserved for anime girls, you may have to think again. Here is our list of ‘15 Cute Anime Boys’ that is guaranteed to make your heart go beating!
Ghouls hide among the clueless citizens in Tokyo, feasting upon flesh. In order to protect their identities and their loved ones the ghouls wear masks. These masks prove to be iconic in the tragic story of Tokyo Ghoul.
