Storyline

In modern day Tokyo, society lives in fear of Ghouls: mysterious creatures who look exactly like humans-yet hunger insatiably for their flesh. None of this matters to Ken Kaneki, a bookish and ordinary young man, until a dark and violent encounter turns him into the first ever Ghoul-human half breed. Trapped between two worlds, Ken must survive the violent conflicts of warring Ghoul factions, while attempting to learn more about Ghoul society, his newfound powers, and the fine line between man and monster.

Too many plotholes and illogical story
15 March 2019 | by bogdanbalostinSee all my reviews

If I would not have read the manga, I would probably have rated it 2 stars. It's that bad. Mind you, the first season was a 9 for me.

Let's start with the flaws. Side stories that don't go anywhere. Characters without any purpose. Characters suddenly appearing in the middle of action scenes from nowhere. The main character (is he even main character anymore?) missing from lots of important parts of the story. And I could go on. Long story short, it's a very confusing show that makes little sense.

Does it have cool action scenes? Yeah but... I don't think you can be invested in them if you don't care about the characters.

In spite of all this, the show can be enjoyable if you read the manga first. As I already read the manga, I could fill up plotholes and understand the reasons for the existence of action scenes and some secondary characters. The anime diverges from the manga a lot but some scenes are picked directly from the manga without any thought if they fit here or not.

The last few episodes are especially interesting (if you read the manga, again I repeat myself)
