so ive been reading Tokyo ghoul as work in my down town and im at about chapter 50. and honestly its been a extremely slow and boring ride and almost no character devilment so far and the MC is still a little powder puff girl unwilling to do anything... but i under stand that some mangas are just slow that way they can pop out more volumes.
what do you guys think?
why did you like/hate it

Definitely keep reading at least till chapter 60 or till the Aogiri arc is over because you won't be thinking the MC is a little girl by then......

I liked Tokyo Ghoul quite a bit because I've always been a fan of dark stories with a good amount of action (Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood and Attack on Titan for example)

well, it you're worried about it being slow, then i'm sure you know that there's an anime that just finished. it speeds things up, but it changes a lot of key details.

so the best thing i can tell you, is to skip to around chapter 70. that's when things get a change of pace and an important part of character development for Kaneki happens there too.

what i like about it is that it's unique in its own way. i can't really give you a specific reason why i like it, i'm just drawn to it. i'd just wished that the anime stuck more to the manga then speed through a lot of the story, but the animation is some of the best around:))

hope this helps.

to be fair, the arc following the anime is quite better, the manga is better than the anime, thats a fact, BUT the ending is so unpleasing man, the manga gets better, but idk how you will feel with the ending, i felt disappointed and that i wasted my time, but that wont remove the fact that i enjoyed the road to the end

i never watched the anime cause i heard the manga was better, plus with my job i have bucket loads of downtime but no wifi, so with my limited data reading mangas and webtoons is best so i figured i'd give it a try this way.

oh well, but you are warned, the manga gets better around chapter 60-65 at least for me, and the following arcs are great, the ending is the main problem of the manga, but that's up to you

I accidentally voted No because I thought you were talking about the anime. I recommend you keep reading the book
