Lenni Reviews: “Tokyo Ghoul” vol 1 by Sui Ishida

Ken Kaneki is a shy guy who has a crush on a girl named Rize Kamishiro. By chance he finally talks to her and they agree on a date. They like the same books, they’re the same blood type, the same age… And their date goes fantastically.

Until she tries to eat him.

IN this world; human eating ghouls exist and Rize set a trap for Ken. By some miracle he survives but the doctors save him by implanting Rize’s organs into him. Now human food tastes revolting and he craves human flesh. A human/ghoul hybrid, Ken learned there are more ghouls than he thought and he has a hunger and abilities he’s never dreamed of.

So far, Touka Kirashima is my favorite character. She’s already a ghoul so when she finds out Ken is half ghoul and he starts moralizing, she has none of his shit, crams the mean down his throat, and tells him to get the fuck over himself. I love characters that cut the bullshit ASAP. Of course it can take time to deal with such a massive life change but don’t go judging ghouls when you know what the hunger feels like now. Also, you could be dead. Prioritize, dearie.
