Synopsis

TL;DR Review

Tokyo Ghoul (Japanese: 東京喰種トーキョーグール Hepburn: Tōkyō Gūru) is a Japanese dark fantasy manga series written and illustrated by Sui Ishida.

Another OVA that surprised me as decently good. If only they put this much care into season two through four, but I digress. The animation is nice and crisp with an engaging, if not disturbing plot.

I prefer the first OVA more as that can stand on its own and a good introduction to the series. This OVA you need to be familiar with Shuu’s personality in order to fully appreciate the story. It is still good mind you but is quite disconcerting.

Recommended for fan of the series. Tokyo Ghoul contains graphic violence and suggestive themes/dialogs. Intended for mature audiences.

Kaneki Ken
"You're wrong. It's not the world that's messed up; it's those of us in it. Yes, some ghouls walk a path that leaves sorrow in their wake, but just like humans, we can choose a different path altogether. We have a lot to learn, both your kind and mine. We need to stop fighting and start talking. Because when it comes to the state of the world, you can't point your finger at ghouls or humans. We're all to blame."
