Tokyo Ghoul is a seinen dark fantasy manga and anime series.


Tokyo Ghoul Manga

The Tokyo Ghoul manga, written by Sui Ishida, ran for 143 chapters (12 volumes) from September 8th, 2011 to September 18th, 2014 in Shueisha's Weekly Young Jump Magazine. Known for its violent, dark visual style and psychological themes, it follows the story of 19-year-old Ken Kaneki, a shy bookworm who is turned into a flesh-eating ghoul after having the organs of one transplanted into him against his will. Developing a taste for human flesh, Kaneki becomes a rare one-eyed ghoul and struggles to deal with the urge to eat.

Kaneki begins work at the ghoul-owned coffee shop Anteiku and begins to understand the lives and struggles of ghouls, while trying to find out more about the true causes behind the accident that caused him to become a ghoul. Human characters play a large role in the series as well; Hideyoshi Nagachika plays the part of Kaneki's cheery yet surprisingly perceptive best friend, and human investigators sent to kill ghouls, such as Amon Koutarou or Akira Madou, are major characters throughout the story.

The manga includes the Post-Aogiri through Owl Suppression Operation arcs, which were not included in the anime version of Tokyo Ghoul. Instead, these arcs were replaced or altered with the non-canon alternate universe of Tokyo Ghoul √A.
