Seriously another Great Manga Destroyed by the Ending stretch...   
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0

I'll keep this short. Re: is awesome. Primarily cause it shifted the attention to the humans perspective, cause in part one we only had the Ghouls perspective.
All of the story was going well till the part when
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Kaneki(One Eye King) and the Ghouls went to the underground...
the story went stale and dragged as f*ck till the end. It's not the first manga I noticed this, this has happened in Magi, which was for me a Masterpiece till a certain point, just like it happened to Bleach too, among others works.
I don't care about the political correct excuses written by publishers and posted mandatory on Twitter by authors. I still believe that authors are pressured to stretch out their profitables mangas by higher ups and this reflects poorly in abysmal shitty endings. Four big manga like Re:, Magi, Bleach, Naruto finishing like this... I logically can't believe it's a coincidence.
In this case, what Arima sent Kaneki out to do seemed contrived and nonsense at the end. People started not dying even after being mortally wounded, plot points were introduced to never be heard again, characters relationships turned shallow just like their motivations...
Even villains who were intended to be disgusting, are turned allies just because the story must continue. When the end part starts to stretch, all the non-sense that happens start to take shape and climaxing in a ending without any sense whatsoever. I firmly believe the author wanted to end this sooner but was made to keep drawing for the saking of "milking" and if what I'm saying is actually right, this might happen in Attack on Titan too, cause the author has expressed before that the story should have ended earlier. We will see how that goes...

If it exists a tag like "Axed" to express that a manga was cut-off short, someone should make a "Stretch" tag to express manga being stretched nonsensically so that it can milk money.

I'm giving a 9 again, because I'm ignoring the ending...

A few thoughts

Some spoilers ahead

I didn't like Tokyo Ghoul:re (though I sort of enjoyed Tokyo Ghoul). I thought it was bad. I'm not gonna bother to delve back into the manga to figure out why certain points were good or not so forgive me if I get them wrong.

The biggest gripe with this series is that it has no thematic focus and therefore nothing the mangaka nor the reader can grasp onto (hence TG's ending and :re) . The entire series devolves into a farce that can be aptly summed up in one image.

The central conceit (and conflict) of Tokyo Ghoul (and :re) is that (A) ghouls consume humans as their only source of nourishment. The problem is that Tokyo Ghoul constantly undermines its central conceit. If (A) why is it that no one bothered to study the anatomy of ghouls to figure out why they can only eat that? Even if and only if (A), why is it that no one bothered to research de-ghoulification? It doesn't make much sense (nor is it believable) that the human side did not do any research into an enemy that threatens their existence.

Once these questions are asked you begin to wonder why is any of this happening? If the reasons ghouls are a threat to humanity is because they consume humans, why not look into that and find ways to stop them from needing to consume humans? Suddenly the seriousness of the story fallls off and you see it as the farce it is. There is no genuine conflict. There's just poorly written excuses for what's happening. The funny thing is that Tokyo Ghoul:re's ending finally manages to create synthetic human flesh for ghoul consumption and offers it as a sort of conclusion to the central conflict between humans and ghouls. What irritates me is that that solution was never once brought up during the story and instead we have characters acting out in ridiculous ways because no one bothered to do figure out the biology of ghouls.

One problem with the above statement though is that ghouls were in charge of the human-side organization fighting the ghouls so it may have been possible (even if the original author never outright said this) that they prevented research into de-ghoulification and synthetic human flesh. Well why? As far as I remember, the ghouls in charge merely lusted for power's sake and very few (read one) had ridiculous notions of turning everyone in Tokyo into a ghoul. (Yeah just go ahead and wipe the species that sustains you.) It also makes sense de-ghoulification was not very interesting to research due to ghoul's incredible regenerative properties and physical capabilities at the cost of needing to feed on human flesh. But given the series intense focus on questions of ethics, it doesn't make ghoulification all that good if it means to consume human flesh. (As to the question why is it okay for humans to eat other living beings and not ghouls with humans, is that (1) refer to two paragraphs above and (2) humans (and ghouls) have the intelligence that other animals can't have (intelligence in the Aristotelian-Thomistic sense)).

In short, :re is boring and messy to read through. Whenever it gets interesting, it loses any momentum right afterward. Also the art is sloppy in comparison with the prequel.

It has such a ridiculously confusing ending. At a certain point, the motivations of the characters hardly make sense anymore and you stop caring for what happens in the story. The cast is wayyy too big and often times you have to search each character's wiki page in order to even remember why they're relevant at all. The first half had a really great build up and payoff, but in the latter half, everything feels dragged and monotonous. I had a hard time deciding on a score due to the difference of how great the first half is compared to the failure of the later half.

Tokyo Ghoul has always been about the twists and the turns the story takes you, and the characters you meet along the way. Re: takes that experience a step further, through conspiracies, betrayal, and mystery. At times, it can seem like Ishida is whipping the story along at random, and at other times, it can seem like it was all planned out from the beginning. I think the truth is somewhere in between. It has pacing problems, but I think a lot of them are because the scope of the story got out of hand. If you want to resolve the storylines of the 20-character cast, there is going to be a lot happening, and not much time to breathe.

Characters are the main draw of the series. They grow, fall apart, and grow again- in Ishida's own words, every character is the protagonist of their own tragedy. It's a tragedy, then, that he often seems to throw a lot of that development away in pursuit of plot convenience, or insert character development too little, too late.

The art is stellar. Stylistically emotive, and at times charmingly sinister, Ishida's artistic talent is second to none. His paneling, while generally unimaginative, hosts art that never seems rushed. Characters have character and are well designed, monsters are monstrous, and landscapes are detailed without seeming traced. Ishida struggles at times with making fight choreography clear, but it's never ruined a scene.

At the end of the day, Tokyo Ghoul Re: is a battle seinen, just as Tokyo Ghoul before it. The work is imperfect, as most are, but it's a clear cut above the rest. If you read Tokyo Ghoul, read Re:. It's a sequel more than a spiritual successor, and the story is just incomplete otherwise. If you haven't read Tokyo Ghoul, consider reading it if you are comfortable with a grimdark battle seinen with something to prove.

Story:. . . . . 5/10
World: . . . . 9/10
Characters: 8/10
Art: . . . . . .10/10
----------------------
Overall: . . . 8/10

It was a sequel following a character who originally had people he wanted to protect .He loses his why forgetting what is truly important to him. Most characters go through many stages of change each with different goals.The author makes you question if someone being good or evil is so easy to decide by showing you characters placed on both sides of that label.

The curse of sequels

What I loved about Tokyo Ghoul was the character development, the good phasing of the story and a general feeling of "wanting to know more" when reading. I liked Kaneki Ken and I liked how he reflected and interacted with his surroundings. Such qualities are clearly lacking in :re.

Honestly, :re is an incorrigible mess that just gives the reader fight after fight after fight without explanations. There is no real story, no real development, no characters that I felt was as interesting or as funny as those in Tokyo Ghoul. I am both sad and disappointed that the author wasted this manga's potential with a mediocre sequel meant to (probably) please the audience rather than actually making quality work.

For those who will say that :re needs more "reflection" or "patience" clearly does not understand Tokyo Ghoul but are just fanboys who doesn't want anyone talking shit or saying anything negative about the manga. Read and compare Tokyo Ghoul and :re and you will see a clear difference in quality.

Tokyo Ghoul:re is not finished yet, however, I highly doubt that anything story or character wise will change. Introducing new enemies does not count as a development y'all, just wanted to put that out here.

In Tokyo Ghoul the ghouls were the monsters. In Tokyo Ghoul re, it's turned around, making the human population the inhuman ones, the monsters. Make no mistake: Ghouls are still cruel here, but the cruelity of the humans? Oh my.
Current status of reading: ch 134

While still better than most other stuff that's released weekly, I'm just not impressed any more with this series. If you liked TG though, continue on. Or wait until this series is completed and do a binge read.

Tokyo Twist

This is the sequel to the brilliant Tokyo Ghoul and Tokyo Ghoul:Re was continuing this quality.
It started slow, build up at good pace, reached it's climax...
... and then ruined everything by twisting, the twisted twist.
Until the climax this manga was easily a 10/10. But afterwards it trashed the basic plot for the sake of twists. The pace changed too, from ever progressing MC to stalling to build up the next enemy.
Maybe it got too succesful and now entered it's milking stage.
Get off the ride while you can still preserve the good memories....
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
what once was a human society vs Ghoul society plot is now Good Artficial Ghouls vs Bad Artificial Ghouls, with no place for humans and natural Ghouls. Army of Zombies will join soon too, pushing humans and Ghouls further into the background.

You have been warned.

Rating: Until the climax 10/10, afterwards 2/10. will settle for 5/10 overall.

This is a series in which you can't skim read. You have to pay clear attention to detail as most of them can foreshadow future events or further develop a character. Many people in the comments complain that the sequel is worse than the previous series but in my opinion it's better than the previous one.

It develops characters from the first series while adding in new ones and all of them have a part to play in the manga. Characters that you may have not liked in the first series are shown to have different sides to them and as the story progresses they grow as characters that might lead you to develop feelings for them even if they were dislikable from the beginning (for me it was Yomo and the gourmet ^^). But that doesn't mean that the new cast in the sequel are forgotten. The author manages to make time for development for them too and you would liking them as much as the previous characters in the first series.

In the prequel, the manga shows the reader the view-point of ghouls and how they live in modern society and this changes in the sequel where the view-point has now shifted to CCG which I really like as this allows us to see from two sides to the story and that there is no black and white only grey in this world. No one in this manga is truly evil as all the characters that have done despicable acts have some sort of reason or backstory to lead them to the point where they are.

This is indeed a sequel to the first series and it has given us answers to what had happened in the first series. I recommend this to people who like character growth and development, horror, some mystery and tragedy(there's a goddamn lot T_T). Although, you do need to pay attention to detail otherwise you could get lost and will not understand what's happening in the story.

The sequel is honestly really good, at first I was bored reading a few chapters but now I'm pretty sure it's better than the first series. This, honestly, sheds a lot of light to the first original series and makes you develop feelings for those who you probably didn't like the first book, like the Gourmet (honestly felt iffy about him), and explores the view points of the first series, the people in the CCG. This is such an amazing read if you read far enough, it took me long enough to be accustomed to the new characters that were being added to the series, which is soooo much, but when I did the plot just exploded in my face. It was amazing. If you are someone who skims and can't read through details i recommend you not read this because you would just be bored and you wouldn't even understand what's happening, for the rest of you try it! Definitely recommended.
