Kaneki Ken was just a normal college student until he got involved in an accident and had some ghoul organs implanted into him. Now he can't eat normal food and needs human flesh to survive. The anime is about watching this guy accepting the ghoul inside of him and at the same time trying to protect his human side. He gets acquainted with some other ghouls and learns that ghouls aren't exactly 'bad' guys. They're trying to survive and they need to eat humans to do that. There is an organization called CCG which hunts ghouls.

This anime shows you two sides of the coin. You get to see the humans and the ghouls trying to protect themselves. At the same time both humans and ghouls are conveniently looking at only their side of the coin. Humans think that ghouls are monsters and ghouls hate humans for hunting them down. You watch them kill each other. The best thing about this anime is that there are no good guys and there is no ally of justice. There are no morals and distinction between right and wrong. The characters can act kind and help others but at the same time they can dirty their hands when they need to and kill innocent people in the name of revenge. Every time you watch CCG members and ghouls fight, you can't help but wish for both sides to win because the people on the losing side will die. Tokyo Ghoul is like a beautiful painting covered with ugly smears. You dislike the smears but the more you look at it the more you realize that the smears are actually part of the painting and the painting is beautiful because it has smears.

If you're looking for an anime with a good plot and action, don't watch this anime. The story isn't exactly original. The protagonist suddenly becoming a monster and struggling to live with it is something we've watched in many anime and manga. There isn't much character development and action either. However if you're looking for an anime that gives you something to think about, do watch this anime. This anime is interesting because there are no easy answers. It gives you a lot of problems and you want to find the answers but no matter how hard you try you never find them.

The art is colorful and has a mixture of many brilliant colors. Take a look at these images.

You can say that it has good action if you are looking for moments of tension, for moments were you really think a character can die. It is a pretty ruthless show, and even if it is not that complicated in terms of the story, I think you can still find it thrilling. At least for me, every time when something happens, a fight or some important event, I have this quick reaction "Is this going to affect any of the people I care about in this anime? What are the chances that this and this person will have his/her life ruined because of it?" That makes add to the experience you have when watching it =)

Also.... I am so sorry I haven't seen the last two episodes that you've reviewed Lost1 Going to watch them today, a little bit later (_ _)/

I rarely felt the tension -.- I am usually busy thinking about how the characters are going to react most of the time. This anime is great because it is ruthless =) It doesn't have a sweet story where the main character kills some awful villain and lives happily ever after. There is no 'happily ever after' for Kaneki. That is what makes it interesting.

I am not proud of how I've written it (_ _) I wrote it late at night when I was sleepy and didn't even check for the typos >. < I am afraid to read it now since I don't know what I'll find in it T.T

Yep, Kaneki has already lost his chance for a happy life in usual terms. I really want to see how everything works out for him though. Cause maybe he can have the kind of happy life Touka has, where you don't get to enjoy it for free, but you can still enjoy it. Or maybe they will just put him down, show how Kaneki gradually falls to his demise. That would be a brave thing to do with a character like him, but that would be a sad end of this story.

:D Tonight I will uncover what is hidden in that post xP

I would like to watch Kenaki fall to his demise. It is twisted but that kinda ending would be sad and interesting to watch =) I haven't decided about whether or not I am going to read the manga yet, considering how the anime is going to end soon. I'll probably not read it though ._.

If you find something bad, be sure to cover it up Tongue

It is a good anime.............@[Sindar] End? Will it cover all the chapters or is it ending because of lack of popularity or something............I mean, it is quite popular and also has a pretty good ranking in MAL..............And, it is also a good anime.............

" Justice is subject to dispute; might is easily recognized and is not disputed. So we cannot give might to justice, because might has gainsaid justice, and has declared that it is she herself who is just. And thus, being unable to make what is just strong, we have made what is strong just."

As with most anime, they plan to make a certain number of episodes and they stick with it. Tokyo Ghoul is a one cour anime, meaning it was planned to have ~13 episodes. They may make a continuation later though. It is really hard to make on-going series like Naruto or HxH without losing in terms of quality. And judging by the way TG looks it did not have a very big budget, so they probably were not able to get the money they would have needed for a full season with 24 episodes.
It is okay, as you said it is popular and a lot of people liked it, so they will probably make another season soon.

I won't mind it if TG didn't have a second season. I dunno why. TG is the kind of anime that can't have an ending. Think about it. How can this anime end? Humans and ghouls can never get along. You can come up with something like maybe Kaneki will change everything, make humans and ghouls come to an understanding. How is that possible? He can ask humans to let ghouls eat dead people. Humans won't be okay with doing that. Just because that person is dead, we won't be okay with someone eating our family members or friends. There can be another ending. Kaneki can get killed or the anime can end after he gets old and dies. So I am okay with not watching this anime's ending, since it is an anime that can't have an ending =)
