How This Will Go!
Pro 1: Seeing Tokyo Ghoul:re in anime form
Pro 2: Exciting narrative
One thing that hasn’t been lost in the Tokyo Ghoul:re anime adaptation—though some things we’ll soon mention have been lost—is the excellent story. Every week we still grip our computer desks and chairs as we watch what will happen next in Tokyo Ghoul:re. The world set in the prequel story continues strong in Tokyo Ghoul:re and that’s a good thing indeed. We won’t spoil some of the new characters such as Haise Sasaki and how they work into this new tale of humans versus ghouls. If you want to know for yourselves—and we know you do—then you’ll just need to watch the Tokyo Ghoul:re anime or read the manga.
Con 1: A lot of missing content
Con 2: Not to easy to understand for anime only fans
Another complaint we’ve been hearing from fans of both the manga and the anime for Tokyo Ghoul:re is that it’s really confusing, especially if you aren’t a manga reader. Possibly due to the content skipping, Tokyo Ghoul:re feels all over the place in the anime. It doesn’t mean we don’t understand what’s going on, but we can sympathize for anime-only fans of Tokyo Ghoul:re. We recommend picking up the manga for Tokyo Ghoul and Tokyo Ghoul:re. If you decide not to, you’re going to be a bit lost in this anime adaptation.
