▍About Tokyo Ghoul
Tokyo Ghoul ( 東京喰種) is a Japanese dark fantasy manga series written and illustrated by Sui Ishida. It was serialized in Shueisha’s (集英社) Weekly Young Jump between September 2011 and September 2014, and it has been collected in fourteen tankōbon volumes.
Tokyo Ghoul is set in an alternate reality where ghouls, creatures that look like normal people but can only survive by eating human flesh, live amongst the human population in secrecy, hiding their true nature in order to evade pursuit from the authorities. Ghouls have powers including enhanced strength and regenerative abilities, but they also have unsatisfiable appetite on human flesh.
