Why was Tokyo Ghoul a failure?

Post date:



The Tokyo Ghoul is a Japanese dark fantasy manga series. It was written and illustrated by Sui Ishida.
It was serialized in Shueisha’s seinen manga magazine. The Magazine was published between September 2011 and September 2014. It has been collected in fourteen tankobon volumes as of August 2014.A sequel titled Tokyo Ghoul: re was established in the same Magazine between October 2014 and 2018.


A fifteen-second promotional video was posted for the official website of Sui Ishida’s Tokyo Ghoul series. The second half of the Tokyo Ghoul: re anime was scheduled for October. It was officially announced to be the end of the series. The Tokyo Ghoul: re actually came out with a bloody mess.
Actually, the Studio Pierrot had decided to stick to the original story of the manga. They didn’t even bother to capture the essence of the story. Everything was poorly executed snd over rushed. The overall plot was really hard to follow. The characters were presented very briefly. There was neither an in-depth backstory nor a relationship buildup between them.

Plot setting

Tokyo Ghoul is based on an alternate reality. There the ghouls look like normal people who can only survive by eating human flesh. They hide their true nature in order to evade pursuit from the authorities. Ghouls have enhanced strength and also regenerative abilities. The story follows Ken Kaneki. He was a college student who survived a deadly encounter with Rize Kamishiro.
She was his date, and she later revealed herself as a ghoul. Kaneki was taken to a hospital, and there he underwent surgery becoming a half goal.It was all because Rize’s organs were transferred into his body. He must consume human flesh to survive.
There is a special team of CCG investigators who underwent a similar procedure. They somehow obtained the special abilities of Ghouls in order to fight them. They are now able to live as normal humans.
