Tokyo Ghoul Season 1 Review!


The story follows Ken Kaneki, a college student who barely survives a deadly encounter with Rize Kamishiro, his date who reveals herself as a ghoul, a human-like creature that hunts and devours human flesh, and he is taken to the hospital in critical condition. After recovering, Kaneki discovers that somehow he underwent a surgery that transformed him into a half-ghoul by transferring some of Rize's organs into his body, as she died when she attacked him, and just like them, he must consume human flesh to survive as well. With no one else to turn to, he is taken in by the ghouls who manage the coffee shop "Anteiku", who teach him to deal with his new life as a half-human/half-ghoul, including interacting with ghoul society and it's conflicting factions, while striving to keep his identity secret from other humans including his best friend Hideyoshi Nagachika.

Episodes: 12


Unravel by TK I love this Op so much, it is now one of my favorites. The animation and color are so beautiful.

My Top 3 Favorite Characters:

1. Kaneki 2. Uta 3. Touka

Which Hair Color Do You Like Better On Kaneki?

I loved the white, he looks so much cooler and in the finale episode when his hair turns white I was so happy because I was waiting for it for so long. He seems like a totally different person but I like it.

Most Annoying Habit A Character Had:

Jason's constant knuckle cracking drove me nuts, when people crack their knuckles it doesn't bother me but if you do everytime your in a scene c'mon now. I always crack my knuckles too but not like him, it's so annoying.

Creepiest Character:

Tsukiyama was so creepy and I know I'm not the only one that thought so! He was creeping me out when he was sniffing the blood on the handkerchief like he is in this picture.

Saddest Scene:

When Ryouko released her Kagune and told Hinami to run for it, we all knew what was going to happen after that. Hinami was running and Kaneki found Hinami on the ground crying. They both ran to see what Ryouko was doing and Mado released Ryouko's husbands Kagune. Just before Mado killed Ryouko, Kaneki shielded the crying Hinami's eyes and Mado stabbed Ryouko with her husband's Kagune and as we watched the tears trickle down her face, she smiled. I cried!

Favorite Scene:

The finale episode! Kaneki VS. Jason!!! Kaneki's hair just turned white, he makes a comeback and gives Jason back what he gave him which was pain. I was so pumped during this scene, it was so awesome and Kaneki kicked Jason's butt!

Overall Thoughts:

I love this anime, and honestly I didn't know if I would like it because I don't like gore but I got used to it. I can't wait to watch the 2nd season! I want to know everyone's thoughts on the 1st season! @Kamiamon @poojas @AimeeH @B1A4BTS5ever @DanRodriguez @resavalencia @Shilolobun @BonnieDomo @AkiraCondry @simplysam12 @nightshade18 @SunnyV @ashleykpop @sugajin94 @ninachan @danidee @felicityautumn @Taijiotter @seaseaBlue

Great review @biancadanica98. I will definitely finish the remaining 4 episodes tomorrow because even though it was a bit too much gore, it was a very cool plot. ^^
