Tokyo Ghoul is a dark fantasy anime and manga created by Sui Ishida. Set in an alternate reality, Tokyo is haunted by creatures called ghosts that thrive off of human flesh. The story follows Ken Kaneki, a college student who barely survives an encounter with a ghost and is transformed into a half-pipe after surgery.

Trapped in a world he doesn't understand, Kaneki must navigate a society of insects, face deadly rivals, and fight for survival. At the same time, she maintains a balance of bodily functions by consuming human flesh to sustain her monstrous side while maintaining her love of literature and a normal life. The complex character development, unique powers, and moral dilemmas presented in Tokyo Ghoul make for a compelling and emotionally charged series.
