Strange murders are happening in Tokyo. Due to liquid evidence at the scene, the police conclude the attacks are the results of 'eater' type ghouls. College buddies Kaneki and Hide come up with the idea that ghouls are imitating humans so that's why they haven't ever seen one. Little did they know that their theory may very well become reality.

Despite the unexpected "action style"

* It would be better if the headline name changes from "Toukyou Kushu" to "Tokyo Ghoul", since the second is an official english name.

This is must read for: horror, dark fantasy, replacement of vampire stories.
I wonder if the emotional roller coaster really got twisted as DarrisonSaber commented, because I think the great unique taste in the beginning of the manga continues despite the unexpected "action style".
The drama, mystery and psychological thriller in this manga are also great... really great I repeat!

I also love the characters very much.

Sarts off Good, Starting to become Stereotypical

I will keep this short and simple:
+Interesting premise
+Realistic reactions/emotions
+pretty damn well paced
+cool and unique characters

-not very strong climb to climax, meaning, the story started off awesome, but is starting to go downhill
-characters in later story are not very sympathetic
-instead of an emotional roller coaster, it becomes a fighting manga around 4-5ish volume :\
-I read all the way up to the 100th chapter so far and frankly, I know how it is going to end, unless there is a plot twist which I can still kind of guess where it is going

I gave it a 10/10 so that the Bayesian Average will rise and make it up higher in the rankings, in actuality, it's around a 8.5/10. No manga is perfect; I just want more people to find out about this manga, because it is worth reading.

Although the plot is pretty good but something about this manga threw me off. I decided to put this manga on hold. It made me bored... only a few chapters kept me going and "hype".

I'm so glad that Twisted Hel Scans picked this one up, I almost feared i would never be able to read it after LA dropped it. The main character may start off a bit annoying but i find his behaviour to be very realistic in regard to his situation.
As this is my first manga about ghouls (as a main theme) I really look forward to further development. It definitely shows a lot of potential.

I stumbled upon this story when I was looking for a horror manga (its not that scary). And I was pleasantly surprised by how good it was. I won't spoil anything but you should check it out.
