Final thoughts on Tokyo Ghoul:
This adaptation gimped Kaneki’s character development hard. If you want to look into the manga, start from chapter 1. The anime leaves out so much that it will be very confusing to try to pick up where it leaves off.
The mangaka has ended the series at chapter 143 with a massive cliffhanger and fans are presuming he will author a sequel some time later.
The thoughtful inner monologue of this finale is kind of stuff that’s been getting cut out of this whole adaptation and what really makes Tokyo Ghoul enjoyable. Thankfully the finale was done pretty well even if that meant changing some things around and not completing the rest of the Aogiri tree arc.
I hope anime viewers will pick up the manga so they can experience the full breath of what Tokyo Ghoul has to offer.
