Tokyo Ghoul is a Japanese dark fantasy anime, so expect gore and shock theme coming in.
The animation is gorgeous and crisp. I wish some of the combat was more fluid, but it is still very good for a television anime budget. Perhaps the beautiful art tricked me into thinking this was a movie quality production, so it raised my expected standard.
The two opening and closing themes for this season are “Unravel” by TK and “Seijatachi” (Saints) by People in the Box. “Unravel” is especially catchy and will stick in your brain at work for days. “Seijatachi” is also very good, but not quite an earworm good as “Unravel”.
I think once you finish Tokyo Ghoul first season anime, you officially earn an edgy emo badge. I do love this season and it is a great introduction to the series. It ending is incredibly satisfying and make you anxious to see season two.
I highly recommend this series to action fan that enjoys some light philosophies. Tokyo Ghoul contains a high amount of graphic violence and some nudity. It is intended for mature audiences.
