Description
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.

Sarts off Good, Starting to become Stereotypical   
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0

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.

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

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.

I love the concept and the fact that the main character is on the 'wrong side' and all the psychological exploration that comes of that. The art is solid, the author is not afraid to widen his cast, so the society feels real, which I like.

The problems:
-Too narrowly focused on particular sub-plots and loses it's synthesis as a story on the whole. He has great ideas, but executes them one at a time: first it's the his adaption and how that effects relationships with his old/new friends, then it's the new people he meets around him when learning his new lifestyle, then it's the government encroachment, then it's back to another plot on ghoul society, then back to another government plot, etc, and the mangaka sort of forgets the other stories while he's doing another, so you'll have a whole volume of one plot, then a whole volume of another, so it's really strange when suddenly he sees this 'best friend' of his again after 3 volumes and then doesn't see him anymore after that...
-Shounen style hero: As I mentioned at the beginning, there are great characters, the problem is, they sort of flip on themselves, so the enemy becomes the good little sidekick, all his psychological problems blown away by being beaten up by the main character (this happens a lot). The main character also had a lot of interesting concerns and personality traits that just get thrown away for him to be badass... which is momentarily exciting, but it destroys the development and long term coherence...
-Shounen style bad guys- I guess this goes hand in hand with the previous two problems, but the really important bad guy in one plot is removed, introduce new really bad guy, remove, etc and the whole story revolves around the bad guys, which sort of makes it boring after a couple arcs...

So, great manga, definitely worth reading, just no reread value and probably will go onto your unfinished list, so don't read it if you want to finish the series ^_^; (note that I am the kind of guy who got bored of naruto and bleach and noblesse etc etc so if you can continue reading those series for evermore, then this is perfect for you too)

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.

A forgetful ending

The series was fairly interesting for its genre (horror), which I usually find unappealing. The ending in chapter 143 ruins the series enough that I'd recommend just stopping at 142. There just was not enough foreshadowing of the ending, and the way it ended simply had no meaning.

I guess I should not be too surprised given the highly detailed but incomplete world of ghouls and humans constructed by the mangaka. In short, he did not construct a world, rather he was just focused on Tokyo. This is usually understandable for manga, given that it is japanese after all, but the mangaka repeatedly focused on the theme that "the world is wrong," which simply reminded you that you don't know anything about how ghouls are treated in the rest of the world.

If the world had been constructed in a more complete fashion, there would be countries which treat ghouls like normal citizens, and others that treat them as slave labor. There would be countries where ghouls would be in charge and humans would be the 2nd class citizens. The point is that there would be so much variation that the real struggle for ghouls would be immigration and some dream of a "promised land."

So, sorry Ishida Sui. Your world was not wrong, rather it was simply incomplete, much like the ending to your series.

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...

Worst ending I've ever seen

No exaggeration, of all the manga I've had any investment in, possibly of all the manga I've read period, this has the worst ending I've ever seen.
Warning: Major Spoilers
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
First, lets talk about the clowns, they orchestrated the whole Rize-getting-crushed organs-getting-transplanted thing, and their motivation was just to make things interesting?!?! They were bored??? And what about Rize for that matter? Is she just going to be kept in a storage container on the verge of starvation for the rest of her life? And the whole thing with Touka "having faith in him" is straight-up depressing, at least let her know he's dead man (but that's personal preference I guess). It just took a great fight scene and turned it into a bunch of "protagonist X dies because [insert deus ex machina here]." Good thing there was a new prototype of that armor huh? And that a scientist, who showed no indication of battle experience, just drove into a combat zone to deliver it right in the final moments eh? And as long as we're asking, how did the strongest members of Aogiri penetrate the CCG's perimeter huh? Who knows? Certainly not the readers.
For anyone who, like me, was unfortunate enough to get hooked on this work, I'd stop reading at chapter 120, maybe 121 if you're brave and just pretend the mangaka had a brain aneurysm or something and couldn't complete the work. Seriously, from like a 10 to a 7 :<

The whole manga's so great that I can't even imagine it having this kind of ending. Even if there would be a second season or a spin-off and all, It just felt too axed.It's like the writer's trying so hard just to finish this season. And just WHAT THE HELL's with those turn of events? Disappointing. Too disappointing.
