Protagonist non-intentionally stumbles upon a supernatural power. The power poses a danger for mankind and the protagonist (as well as other "ghouls" in Tokyo Ghouls) must avoid a police-like group.

These amazing animes are just spectacular! They giv eyou that moment when your actually frighten or astonished of what just happened. In tokyo ghoul, a boy sets off knowing that he has to feed off other humans and that he is no longer a human. Such ttragedy and unexpected even which relate to horro, leads to a strong and scary ending! Have fun!

Both include a lot of heavy suspense and anxiety just five minutes into the first episode up to the ending.

Broken forever. Death Note and Tokyo Ghoul have an interesting similarity in that both MCs are students whose humanity breaks as their world and perspectives change forever. Death Note is not literal in this sense but with Light's god complex and serial killing, it becomes apparent that he loses his sense of humanity. Tokyo Ghoul is literal with Kaneki psychically becoming a ghoul, now having to survive as one. Both MCs also have a supernatural weapon with them. Both are good mystery anime with Tokyo Ghoul including action and gore, though Death Note plays with mind games and incredible rivalry.

Great world-buiding!Dark fantasy!Mysteryr!If you want to see animes with these genres then Death note and Tokyo ghoul have done a good job in handing these elements.Both of these animes totally depends on the viewer who is right and who is wrong.The world-building is outstanding.In Death note the mc thinks that he is right and the police thinks that Light is wrong.In Tokyo ghoul the ghouls think that humans are bad and humans think that ghouls are bad.So it totally depends on the viewer's perspective to decide who is right and who is wrong.You'll love both of these animes.

Both shows have dark and eerie themes. Protagonists both gain a supernatural power and have to avoid a police force. Similar soundtracks and vibes.

You never know what side to take. do you take Kaneki's side and understand what him and the other ghouls are going through or do you take the side of the humans and respect the loss of loved ones? do you take Light's side and want to create the perfect world or do you side with L and the investigators and let everyone live a normal life? Neither animes have the generic happy ooh the MC won ending. Both worth a watch
