might i ask when you stopped reading(like which chapter?)


it was around the time that


You should've pushed on a bit more to see a huge revelation from Arima that shook the whole foundation of ":re" as a series.

If you find the series confusing or some events that make little to no sense like what you described in the spoiler tag(assuming you think so), maybe you could participate in the TG forums or reddit to see other's opinions and keep up with everything going on within the series along with the fanbase/community.

Being a big fan of the series, I never feel left out at all because of the weekly dicussion routine at reddit.




Yeah, I got up to the part where they found out what CCG really was. I can understand how the hardcores would be blown away by such a huge plot twist, but since I'm so lost in the story, I didn't really even care at that point, and that's why I stopped reading it. In my opinion, Ishida screwed up at the early stages of Re by focusing too much on new characters that no one is really interested in and changing his art style and making it hard to tell characters apart. I understand why people still love the series so much, but its gotten to out of hand for someone like me.

I get that, is a fair opinion.

Ishida has proven to be a effective writer , he cleared up the story with reveals but it didn't feel too packed with info,and it fit the pacing of the manga

People say TG is hard to follow... I really don't think so.
It depends on how deep you want to feel the story.

When I started reading it, Tokyo ghoul Re was a complete mess. So many new characters that look similar, information bombs most of the time, and the most cryptic interaction I've seen in manga. Heck, I couldn't even tell what the fights looked like, since it was just a drawing mess in my eyes. I had to depend on the dialogue to see the outcome, and well, that wasn't a very reliable thing to do, so I was mostly confused with who died and survived. Re was probably my worst experience ever with a story, and yet I kept reading, solely because of Kaneki's development.

However, after some revelations in the latest chapters, I decided to reread the entire thing, and I'm happy I did. I believe I went from like a 20% understanding to 90%, and I can finally understand how great Tokyo ghoul really is.

I wouldn't say he's screwed up the story(that's subjective), because of the new characters introduced. Since :re is a new series, he may want to move the story in a different direction(my opinion). Though I can see the side effects, that people getting too attached to the first series, so much that they shut down any empathy to new characters introduced, which then consequently lead to less immersion into the story in a long run.

All that being said, the most popular complaint against :re that is almost universal consensus(acknowledged by even hardcore fans), would be the confusing fighting choreography. Idk why he would choose to condense battle scenes so much, in that he's trying to fit too many actions in a double-page spread. And most fights finish very quick as a result, though I can forgive that since TG at its core, is never a battle-oriented manga. But having a good fight is definitely a plus to the series and also, it brings more audiences as well..hah..

Another one of the masterpieces im rreading. Go ahead and read it.

I won't go into detail as everyone else has, but I really enjoyed it and think it's worth a watch! The things the main character has to go through half-way through the series, and the way he changed because of it, was perhaps the most interesting thing I've ever watched!

He's not talking about the anime. This discussion is about the manga. I only bring this up because the anime was a rather poor adaption of Tokyo Ghoul. Tokyo Ghoul is kinda like Berserk because, in order to get the BEST experience you have to read the manga.

Edit: I don't want to sound rude or mean (its why I hate text) about this though.

I love Tokyo Ghoul to the point where I find myself reading the volumes the day they come out, and then lamenting for two months waiting for the next volume. R.I.P. Volume 8 8/16/16
