Tokyo Ghoul Season One Review


Tokyo Ghoul is one of the bigger recent releases from Madman Entertainment. It is animated by Pierrot in Japan. The series follows the character Ken Kaneki, or Kaneki as he is referred, as he is brought into the world of Ghouls after receiving an emergency organ transplant after a fatal accident during a date.

His mission is to spread the otaku culture in the Holy Eldant Empire by introducing various manga, anime and video games. It’s quite silly, but it does have it serious moments.
