Slip and slides and but chugs away to the finish line.

**This review contains Spoilers for the previous Series (Tokyo Ghoul). Also Includes Spoilers for upto volume 5. I have to spoil one of the major Reveal to kinda talk about the series.**

TG ended with Kaneki losing to Arima losing his memories and becoming a Ghoul Investigator. He now goes by Haise. Becomes the very thing that were trying to destroy him in the past. Now he's gotta work for CCG and Fight what he originally considered Family. So you have Kaneki playing the role what Amon played in the original series. More or less. There is something new here which is the Quinxes. An artificially created half ghouls by the CCG to be utilized against Ghouls. However as the story unfolds more and more we see a lot of subplots, character interactions where the series becomes far more than just a simple extermination program.

Tokyo Ghoul: RE starts out strong. The beginning is very reminiscent of the quiet nature that TG had at times paced well with Jaw dropping moments with carnage that drown out the dialogue on screen. TG:RE at the start is what it does best. But sadly this is just gone far too quick. As I read more and more of the series it drops off in pacing, character, subplots and overall quality. It's very depressing to see a series you love be somewhat of a shell of its former self.

I don't hate this series. I very much like it. But the quality difference between TG and TG:RE is very noticeable not just in regards to the story but art as well. There is a lot of drag style art. Where it looks like a sketchy mess especially for one of the support characters Urie. I get that Urie is one of the more self centered characters and talks to himself a lot. The author tries to show this kind of unhinged behavior through a sketchy art but it just becomes a jumbled mess. Especially since Ishida's art is spectacular. It just looks like a mess next to it.

Reading TG:RE I get why people say the fight scenes are hard to follow. I mentioned its because of the Drag that the author decides to add during the fights scenes. This was not a problem in the original series. The art quality overall has improved but the way certain things are drawn has been more of a downscale.

I don't mean to constantly compare the series to the original. I say the series is worse in most regards... in comparison to the original series. I still very much enjoy the series. The story and characters and action are great. Just not as good as the original.

Besides the art I don't think I can name something I liked about this series more than the original. The characters aren't more memorable, the story is much of a jumbled mess. There are several twists and character revivals that I simply did not care about. In fact there were times I had completely forgotten that this character had died. While on the opposite end too many characters survive. You lose that monstrosity in the original that named characters died. Like a lot of them. It was ballsy and constantly kept you on your toes. There was some of that in the beginning but sadly it wanes later on.

There is a comparison with Descending Stories to be made here. You could argue there are many things that are done subtly in both of these series yet in Descending stories, It's "missing the point" but in Tokyo Ghoul its poor writing. What I'm trying to say is that Descending Stories fanbase can go fuck themselves.

There are also plenty of subplots that were just not resolved. The Garden isn't properly explained or shown. We never get the full scope of V. There were some characters that the author forgot and there were some characters that I forgot. Shachi was a very strong character and I was thinking his character never gets resolved but it does... I just forgot...

1 fight scene we don't get to see and I am very disappointed in that. After everything we didn't get to see THIS fight. WHYYYYY. I feel like some characters were wildly wasted as well. They were introduced but had no real value either.

I did lie a little bit in this review. I said there isn't anything more memorable in this series in comparison to the original besides the art. This is incorrect. There is a godlike chapter that completely Justifies this entire manga. A chapter that makes me thing God is real. It defies all logic. Betrays all expectations and breathes life in the most beautiful way possible. You know what I'm talking about.

Overall. I Liked this manga. Its copy pasting the original, It is moving forward the story but It is still a weaker version of the original. It loses the Dichotomy between Ghouls and Humans except till the end. The action scenes are messier. Too many Characters Introduced. But I still the enjoyed the hell out of this series. And I think you would to. 7/10

It's hard to get your feelings and thoughts totally straight on Tokyo Ghoul:re because the brevity of it's cast and narrative is large. Furthermore, the story is amass of different storylines threading and weaving between each other. But, like it's predecessor, Tokyo Ghoul:re gets the moments right. There are no end of disturbing, dramatic and beautiful moments throughout this story. Insanity rendered in gorgeous, brooding art and shown with great attention to the non-verbal component. The screaming confusion.

So, inspite of the weightless physical conflict in the latter half and the questionable way in which many plot strings are tied, Tokyo Ghoul:re leaves me feeling amazed.

Another sequel that declines in quality

Tokyo ghoul part 1 was actually good not the best but it was enjoyable to read. Re is inconsistent, the potential for the series is there, but with plot holes and a lot of deus ex machina, The dragon arc is anticlimatic
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the final villain sucked as he didn't put up a good fight, when compared to Arima as his fight is way better. koma and irimi deaths are unexplained given that they are important characters.

Sen could have been interesting character too she was enigmatic and had an interestingly story potential, but her arc didn't amount to anything as her goal was just to stop V an organisation that is just boring and not exciting as they help the washuus maintain world order the theme of the world being trapped in a birdcage.

Also it was weird how they show Rize being in a broken state with Renji in part 1, I was extremely excited to see what happens next, and see her recover slowly from that state and see some interaction with kaneki but that plot point didn't amount to anything.

The clowns seem interesting how part 1 ended, it could have lead to new story developments that would actually be interesting but it felt too passive and simplistic in part 2. Uta and Itori deserved better when they were revealed to be in the clown gang as once again it felt too passive and they play too little of a role in general and their conclusion of attacking renji as a sign of friendship is something I would expect in a saturday morning cartoon to be honest.

mutsuki character arc suffered a 180 becoming a psychopathic character only to laughably easy to turn good it was very unconvincing how it happened. Nutcrackers motivation being a villain was poorly written a misandrist woman who just wants to beautiful was very cringeworthy. Characters that were shown to be very likely to be dead returns with no prior explanation as Amon appeared out of nowhere being an example.

Furthermore the washuu were ghouls is an asinine plot twist as their motivation were unclear and most likely nonsensical. If they were ghouls why would they need v's to collect corpses to sustain their hunger if they had the ccg as a research facility to and it was shown in the end
that synthetic meat was being made and there not once a mention of this plot point at all just another asspull that was poorly implemented as there was no hints or mention of it
. I could name more problems with the series such as introducing too much new characters that feels unnecessary as they feel too undeveloped, the old cast were very neglected in the first half, that the second half did a more decent job of developing personalities such as touka. But I think I will stop there and say the series is full of holes. One of the few saving grace for tokyo ghoul:re is Akira, touka, Hinami and kaneki(in some parts of the second half anyway, his character arc in the first half was poorly thought out and is meant to be a plot device)

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.

A ride, at times flawed, but always redeemable

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
