Tokyo Ghoul is a dark fantasy manga series that came out in 2011 and was adapted into an anime series in 2014. It is a world where ghouls exist and live amongst humans. Ghouls are monsters that need to consume human flesh to survive. They look like ordinary humans but possess several superhuman abilities, including regeneration, enhanced strength, and resistance to some weapons.
Ghouls also possess a predatory weapon called the kagune, which they can transform into a weapon to help them fight. They live in hiding to avoid the authorities hunting them down. The series follows the story of Ken Kaneki, a college student who was transformed into a half-ghoul to live after he was critically wounded from a ghoul attack.
Though Kaneki is the main character and the most popular one of the series, he is not the only character there. Tokyo Ghoul has introduced many cool characters that have captured audiences due to their appearance, personality, and abilities.
