mentioning the story of Tokyo Ghoul, what is Ghoul? roughly the ghouls are a
kind of vampire. Unlike vampires, ghouls can also easily travel during the day
and eat their prey with meat instead of sucking blood. This prey is naturally
human. Ghoulis except human flesh put whatever they put in their mouths.
While some ghoul is enjoying the pleasure and turning the business into slaughter and blood bath, others do not like to hunt, and only when they are forced (when they are very hungry) they go hunting. In addition, each ghoul has a different power, called kagune, which is a part of the bodies of the ghoulis. There is also a unit called CCG (Commission of Counter Ghoul), which fights against them in Tokyo. So as you understand, the ghouls are not hidden and people are aware of their existence.
In the world I’ve
said above, or rather, a college student named Ken Kaneki in Tokyo is living on
his own. Kaneki, who is usually hanging out with her only friend Hide, meets a
girl named Rize in a coffee shop called Anteiku and starts to be interested in her.
The common point of Kaneki in Rize is literature and books, so it decides to
quit. After a pleasant day, Kaneki offers to take Rize home, but Rize takes
Kaneki to a dark construction site.
And then it happens,
and Rize bites Kaneki. The girl she liked was Kanman and was a feast and a
Kaneki dinner. When everything is over for Kaneki, the iron from the top of the
construction falls on Rize and kills him. Emergency teams arriving at the scene
immediately take the critical Kaneki into operation and the organs of Rize, who
have died, are transported instead of the fragmented organs. The surgery
results in success and Kaneki is also discharged after a few days. However,
there is a strange situation. Kaneki cannot eat properly and feels different.
As the days pass by,
Kaneki realizes that the hunger Kaneki has directed himself towards the people
is terrified because he begins to realize that due to Rize’s organs, he becomes
half human half ghoul. Soon there comes an exquisite smell to his nose and when
he follows the scent, he sees that another ghoul is being fed and he suffers a
lot, but thanks to the human side he manages to rein in himself. Events develop
and Kaneki meets Touka and officially enters the world of ghouls.
Tokyo Ghoul’s anime
quartet starts with a first episode, and especially the breaks of the episode
are great. After the first episode, the atmosphere is a bit focused because it
is trying to introduce us to the anime that the ghoul people live in. When this
happens, a few episodes made me feel like anime with a life-like theme.
situation does not take too long and as soon as the tempo is rising and again
with a final section, we are almost still with to be continued. In other words,
anime ends up with the 13th episode as if it is going to continue, and while
you are watching with excitement, your enthusiasm stays on your knees. Tokyo
Ghoul’a 9 – 9.5 points could be given, but more than 13 episodes were required
