Tokyo Ghoul anime announced

http://yaraon.blog109.fc2.com/blog-entry-21283.html

Well, shit. You guys wanted a proper gore and cannibalism anime and were disappointed with Pupa? Well here is the real deal.

Oh brilliant. I remember picking this series up about two years ago, but the scans were super slow and I got discouraged from reading it further. Now I find the raws and scans are moving along fast-paced, and it's gotten an anime? Jesus, time flies.

Gonna say though, this isn't a very good series. Story is meh and the characters aren't very likable. This is my opinion.

Yeah, it's not great, but it should be fun to see animated assuming it isn't censored to hell.
>>
>>100346439
Catalyst of story being plothole is pretty stupid. Even amnesia would've been better than loltransplantation shit. MC is quite unlikable and then it even turns in battleshonen. Drawning style is quite nice.

>In Japan, strange creatures that eat humans are around and they're called "Ghoul". A university student, Kaneki Ken, is living a normal life and has fallen in love with a girl. But, after their first date it turns out that she's a Ghoul. Being seriously traumatized, he got saved as the Ghoul accidentally died.

>What happens when the doctors implant some of her organs to him, in order for him to survive?
>>
That feel when my thread gets ignored >>100346304

I don't know what to think about that. I enjoy the manga.
>>
>>100346439
Wait until they reveal that it's only 5 minutes long.
>>
I remember checking this manga out.

Nothing but a cheap clone of that Shiki vampire anime except characters aren't as memorable
>>
I'll agree with the above comments, the manga isn't very good and the only really likeable thing about it is the art style

However
1. It's still better than Pupa
2. It should be fun to see it animated
3. Even if it's a below average manga, a straight adaptation would still make it an above average manga.

You know what the MC and main heroine remind me of? Armin and Mikasa. Not even trolling.

*would still make it an above average anime, I meant to say.

>9 Volumes (Ongoing)

Should have expected as much.
>>
>>100346439
>proper gore
>cannibalism
>puppa
>Tokyo Ghoul

What about Hellsing Ultimate ?
>>
>>100346879
I personally think the series gets a lot better as it goes along. The biggest problem is that the series has a very slow start and the MC doesn't really start to get likable until about 20 chapters or so in.

The anime will likely not be very good as a result.
>>
>>100346972
I've always felt the gore in Hellsing was too tryhard.
>>
>>100346439
>You guys wanted a proper gore and cannibalism anime
Parasyte anime has also been announced.
>>
>>100347005
I have no problem with an MC being unlikeable so long as it's presented in an entertaining context.

>I'm a harem lead and all these girls are after me, what a pain!
Bad unlikeable

>I'm a fucking monster holy shit what the fuck I don't really want to eat people but...
Good unlikeable
>>
>>100347073
I think Yuki Kaiji will do a great job voicing this kid.
>>
>>100347149
Who is voicing him here?

>>100346972
Hellsing Ultimate is sort of like Kill Bill (I), the violence is over the top in non-serious way, it's more humourus than discomforting
>>
>All this hate for the MC.
Guys, his girlfriend tried to eat him and now everything tastes like absolute shit, besides he stopped complaining ages ago.
>>
>>100347186
maybe to put it in easier terms
it's 'fuck yeah' violence
not 'oh no, please stop it violence
>>
>>100347170
Mitsuki Saiga
>>
FUCKING HYPED
>>
>>100347073
>I'm a fucking monster holy shit what the fuck I don't really want to eat people but...

Get some taste. This the most cliche unlikeable character you can get in any story involving a monster and is hardly entertaining
>>
>>100346860
>You know what the MC and main heroine remind me of? Armin and Mikasa.
Really? Guess I'll check it out.
>>
>>100347297
He got over it soon enough.
Mindbroken MCs are the best.
>>
>>100347297
>Most cliche.
You'd prefer if the MC decided to just go around eating people left and right?
The reason it is used a lot is because it is realistic.
>>
>>100347330
There's that moral ambiguity too, most of the "good" guys are the man-eaters. You might be reminded of Bert and Reiner at times too.
>>
>>100347297
It mostly depends on how it's executed.
>>
>>100347297

What does it take for you to be entertained?
>>
>>100347005
Weird I found him getting less likable as the series went on. Yeah the whole "I'm a monster" mope was cliche but it was more interesting than the standard "dark" shounen hero direction his character was going when I dropped it.

Only 31 chapters were translated to english so far? I would said it is kinda boring before all the shit starts to kick in. I've read ahead with chinese scan or japanese raw (110 chapters), later chapters are much better in terms of plot and pacing. Here are some spoilers in case you need something to keep yourself going.

MC was captured by a SS rank ghoul and tortured for the sole purpose of satisfying that SS ghoul fetish. Pic related. A centipede was in his ear.

MC accepted himself during the process, and, as you would expect, became quite fucking powerful. MC became obsessed with torturing people.

Still refusing to eat human, he go all out to kill and eat ghouls. He was identified as SS ghoul.

He became really really crazy.
>>
>Esdes torturing Wave because Tatsumi got away

What a piece of shit. It's her fault for letting some random join the Jeagers in the first place because of MUH VAGINA.
>>
>>100346439
How many girls are after the mc?
>>
>>100352494

One, i think.
>>
>>100352528
Depending on the pacing it could be a fun ride and end up being quite enjoyable.
Or it could turn out to be shit.
>>
>>100348377
>Still refusing to eat human
>eat ghouls
wither this is edgy or not, I'm looking forward to it.
>>
Wasn't expecting an anime, we probably won't get to the part where Kaneki gets mind broken as fuck. Should be fun though.
>>
>>100359048
I had this one on my watch list for announcement, though I was expecting a couple more volumes before that.
