DISCUSSION


In this discussion thread, we're going to compare and contrast the Tokyo Ghoul anime to the manga (so far). As we all know, the manga definately goes more in depth with everything's that's going on. So it's a bit longer. The anime is moving quite fast with the story line, but there are tons of odds and ends, and different things about it. We may even dislike a certain character in contrast to the manga version of that character. Or vice versa!

Remember to keep any potential spoilers in the spoiler tag, and provide a warning. And be respectful to anyone's opinion!

Pretty freaking upset that there's only going to be 12 episodes, that's my two cents on the anime. Don't let the manga die.

Funimation took a gamble with Tokyo Ghoul. I am sure there will be a strong enough fan base for them to make a second season.

I kind of thought the anime did not cover enough on the book that first connected Ken Kaneki and Rize Kamishiro together. It kind of fore shadowed the transformation Kaneki was going to go through.

I definitely think it's going to get at least a second season. It might be short lived, but at least they cover the majority of it pretty quickly. It's not so bad, but I agree; I wish they went more in depth with everything.

With any anime, the manga it may be deprived from will probably always be better. Books are always better. It's the original story, y'know?

I actually really like the animation. But I always recommend the manga, first. xD

As the order in events are kind of mix matched, I would say the anime brings more of a better understanding of the character's personality but the manga brings most of the lore, I would have to say the anime is my favorite but the manga is by far my favorite.
