Description
Strange murders are happening in Tokyo. Due to liquid evidence at the scene, the police conclude the attacks are the acts of man-eating monsters, 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.

Dammit. I went into this manga knowing it was horror/tragedy (aka LOTS OF DEATHS) and yet I managed to let down my guards by the first chapter... sad

This manga was really good, and honestly, the poor main character needs a break. His life sucks. I cry so much for him.

BUT GAHD I NEED MORE! I NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS DANG IT! <-- binged read this and now i have withdrawal symptoms.

Tokyo Ghoul begins and ends with Ken Kaneki. There are countless of intriguing subplots & characters with distinctive motives all in the backdrop of a macabre urban Tokyo. But at the end what lies at the heart of the story is its protagonist. We come to know about Kaneki, learn to like him and understand his struggle. This is a journey that details a young man entering a world previously unaware to him and trying to deal with his new reality.

The whole plot was more than enough to keep me reading. Having to wait for the next chapter to be released left questions hanging heavy in the air thanks to all the cliffhangers that seemed to never end. The last chapter being announced definitely brought me to tears even before I read it though. However I'm really happy that the sequel is out.

The series is very good has great, a very unique art style characters one can get behind and a steadily developing world. I also find the handling of gore(a bit like some french albums) and minimal nudity interesting.
Tons of messed up but always justified acts of violence happen to everyone(yes none is safe) but here is the kicker.
The actual "gore" aspect is just out frame most of the time but instead we get to see detailed and agony filled close-ups of faces or reaction shots of the viewers(so many feelz). And best of all nearly everything has lasting consequences from deaths that stick to lasting darkness just under the smiles of the leads. There is also a lot of grey morality going on and the villains and anti-heroes all feel justified in their own way. A bit like Akira.
To clarify I love justified gore as much as anyone but restrain is a lost art and Sui knows that language well.
The series itself starts of with a bang but settles down in a decent for a lack of words "shonen"grove(the series first small flaw). But then something BiG happens and the series gets a slight kick in the pants and kicks into high gear.
I am not talking about an increase of action scenes by the way. A bit like Titans.
Not much time is wasted on anything after that and now we come to the second and final flaw. Most characters are a bit to innocent or "clean" for better word to fit into the series world or even ours. I don´t need a sex and drugs orgys by any means but it would be nice if the all the rather cute shipping would lead to more then longing stares for example. So no real flaws at all and my rating could go up a bit if the story stays strong. I have no doubt. By that i meat this fact: RE is not a sequel but more like a Volume 15(just like the pointless US-comics renumbering) and the spinoff Jack is a mess all around. So is the sadly rushed anime to a point. The happier parts of the manga remind me of Angel Desetsu and Claymore. The darker of Parasyte. And why not try Berserk if you are at it?

Interesting characters, mildly philosophical and extremely engaging themes, moral dilemmas, conflicts, but a promise for something more, this manga had every piece of potential to be awesome, but unfortunately, in the end, at one point the author opted for cheap shock value and brutal action scenes over pursuing character development and plot as the main goals of the manga.

I will leave the spoilers out, but the ending is also extremely, extremely disappointing. It was a manga that could have had me screaming "Ahh, amazing" but in the end, I am just left with a bitter aftertaste.

If you're interested in this, just watch the anime, be disappointed with the ending, and leave it there, knowing it does not get better.

Well... this situation is somehow hilarious. Lots of people complain about the end and complain how horrible it is and try to analyse why it was such a "piece of crap". Haha.
Did you actually read this story? Yes? Then you should have noticed that THIS ending can't be all there was to it. That mangaka planned all this - the frustration and anger about this "ending" was planned since at least past chapter 72. (Check out the chapter title). So no - that can't be all there was to it. He wouldn't plan such a shitty ending after doing all these foreshadowings and leaving all those clues...
I expect a sequel. A good one. And I expect a good amount of my theories to be crushed mercelessly. After all, this is the reason I love Tokyo Ghoul. It's a trip where you can't predict its ending. And where you continue to look back only to realize: Oh! This was all already there somewhere. So yeah. To sum it up: Don't read it now, read it in one or two months. Because if you do, right now you'll only be left in frustration, anger and worry like all those people who kept reading it until the end. (They wouldn't be so pissed off if they didn't enjoy the story) You are honestly better off reading it after the sequel was announced. (*I don't know for sure though whether Ishida will really announce a sequel - so don't take my word for it please!)

Update: One month later the sequel began running... just as predicted. Aaaand my theories were pretty much crushed, I'm really interested whether I'm correct with the few remaining ones. So please, you may begin reading now, you are in for a bloody ride smile

Wow man this was a really awesome series man. The art, story, action were all great but the best part was the development of the main Character. All i can say after reading this is what the hell, cause the ending came out of nowhere for me. It seems like there was tons they can still do, and so much was unconfirmed man. This was really an annoying out come to a great series. The author did set up a lot of foreshadowing for the future so im really hoping hes making a sequel to this. I mean seriouly there are a TON of plot holes and questions left like (*warning major spoilers so dont read if didnt finish*):
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I mean what happened to kaneki?is he dead? What happened to Amon? is he dead? what happened to Hide?, what was with him?is he dead and how? what happened to Anteiku? are they all dead? What was with the "Pieriot"?, What happened to Rize and the Manager? One eyed king etc, Aogiri etc, etc etc etc....
There's SOOO much missing info and if this doesnt get a sequel im not ever gonna read this again cause it will always disappoint me. I rate this a 10 cause it is a great series but i may lower it later (to just 9 or 8 probably) if it stays with a unfulfilled ending like this

I hope there is a sequel planned because the ending was a disaster. It is far too open ended to be conformable with. There are so many questions. I also agree with some of the other comments the art need to be addressed it lack in so many ways, when Hide was shown to be the informant, I could not recognize him even after his identity was reveled I was so confused because he looked so different.

Also, why is it that almost no ghouls died but the investigators get killed left and right.

THE HORRIBLE ENDING!!! >.<

Gleaming potential, exciting action, interesting ideas and creative concepts-- ruined, by the absolutely dissappointing, confusing, anti-climatic end.

What's wrong with the end, you say?

Pretty much everything:
* pacing was shot to bits-- with confusing, almost random timeskips.
* untied plots; there was SO MUCH to be explored that was glossed over or ignored
* literally almost-random characters were just thrown in, no development, they just happened to appear

Devastating, really, because this series really had it going.

It feels like the author just GAVE UP, and tried to finish everything really quickly--you could see he had it all initially planned (foreshadowing, clues etc!!!!), but 5-10 chapters towards the end the manga just collapsed into a rushed, pathetic 'climax'.

What happened? So many questions and answers and feelings, lost to black scribbles and wtf random time skips.

There has to be more.

Don't read, unless you can tolerate bad endings, and i'm talking REALLY bad endings for something that was so, so good...

good story, awesome character designs (oh, i love Kaneki's mask) and horrible ending...
i don't know how to rate this manga -.- i wanna give 10 for the designs, i also wanna give 8 for the story but the ending does not even deserve to be 1 -.-
i wonder what happened to the mangaka, did he run out of idea or he was not in good mood to make a better ending or he got bored with the manga...
