Tokyo Ghoul



Synopsis: The suspense horror/dark fantasy story is set in Tokyo, which is haunted by mysterious "ghouls" who are devouring humans. People are gripped by the fear of these ghouls whose identities are masked in mystery. An ordinary college student named Kaneki encounters Rize, a girl who is an avid reader like him, at the café he frequents. Little does he realize that his fate will change overnight.

From: ANN

The manga is pretty great, here's hoping for a good adaptation.

Probably because I always have envisioned Fukuyama for that role.
I still want Saiga back from the PV, Hanae's kinda ok I suppose.

Agreed, especially if Miwa's going to be actively participating in the animation. While Yamada seems to have a decent resume, I wonder if he's suited for this anime though; I'd imagine the OST/BGM would carry a pretty hefty weight for this series.

They need to cover up to vol 8.
But by this logic, it would flop anyway because compared to the good parts the earlier parts are just not worthwhile right? Who's going to stick around for that long till it "gets good"? Admittedly, Tokyo Raven has other issues as well, but I think the slow plot contributes quite a bit to the poor sales.

I think the earlier arcs of Tokyo Ghoul have merits too, they just seem inferior in retrospect cause the later parts are even better. I'd still watch this if it's one cour, then again my standard is pretty darn low (if Amamiya delivers as Touka that's all I care about for the most part). Maybe the Goth themes would boost a niche popularity, the masks are insanely cute afterall

Correction: the opening is performed by the vocalist of the group though.

Gen urobichi would be proud. Animation kinda reminds me of Psycho-Pass.

Ep 1

Initial Impressions

A pretty good adaptation of the source material, I think. Not stupendous, but pretty good.

Ah yes - for those unfamiliar with the story it is indeed a gory one, and it is not for the squeemish - though saying that makes me wonder why I am watching it - the BD's will likely be quite graphic.

Not much else really stood out for me, but at least nothing really pushed me away. I will try the next ep, though....

First episode was OK, but nothing special. It still has plenty of time to prove that it's more than just gore porn. So the doctors didn't know those "donated" organs belonged to a ghoul? From what I saw, the biological differences between humans and ghouls seemed obvious enough for them to detect it Maybe it was intentional or maybe they didn't give a damn and assumed there would be no consequences.
