31 Days of Horror: TOKYO GHOUL (Season 1)

At last, something Halloween or horror related has appearing in the month of October and it is my review of TOKYO GHOUL (Season 1).

Another Castle

In modern-day Tokyo, society lives in fear of Ghouls: mysterious creatures who look exactly like humans, yet hunger insatiably for their flesh. None of this matters to Ken Kaneki, a bookish and ordinary young man, until a dark and violent encounter turns him into the first ever Ghoul-human half-breed. Trapped between two worlds, Ken must survive the violent conflicts of warring Ghoul factions, while attempting to learn more about Ghoul society, his newfound powers,  and the fine line between man and monster.

Pros

  • Enthralling and heartbreaking story
  • Perfect in-depth character development for a majority of them with genuine emotional moments
  • Vivid and striking animation
  • Gore that is actually tasteful without going too gratuitous or excessive
  • Excellent music score along with the opening and ending songs with a fantastic English dub from FUNimation.

Cons

  • As much as this has restraint, there are scenes that aren’t made for the easily squeamish.
  • Pacing issues
