Tokyo Ghoul Monster Edition

So I really enjoy the anime a lot of Tokyo Ghoul. The manga just finish up so I think the anime series might be almost over also. Think there about two seasons now on hulu. Prey for a third season soon. For those new to the anime no worries, its on hulu to watch and all. Lucky barnes and nobles doing this monster edition so kinda like 3 books in one, for those you want to start collecting the manga. Monster Edition will be out Nov. 21st. For my readers if you like anime and manga reviews on my blog let me know. I like to mix it up sometimes and do both once in a while as I count manga as books. Here is the cover reveal for the monster edition along with Tokyo Ghoul summary for those new to the anime and series. Enjoy and Happy Reading!


Anime Summary:

Tokyo Ghoul is set in an alternate reality where ghouls, individuals who can only survive by eating human flesh, live among the normal humans in secret, hiding their true nature to evade pursuit from the authorities. Including enhanced speed, senses, and regenerative ability, a regular ghoul is several times stronger than a normal human, has a skin resistant to ordinary piercing weapons and has at least one special predatory organ called a “Kagune”, which it can manifest and use as a weapon during combat. Another distinctive trait of ghouls is that when they are excited or hungry, the color of their sclera in both eyes turns black and their irises red. This mutation is known as a “kakugan.” In the case of a half-ghoul, only one of the eyes undergoes the transformation. A half-ghoul can either be born naturally as a ghoul and a human’s offspring, or artificially created by transplanting some ghoul organs into a human. In both cases, a half-ghoul is usually much stronger than a pure-blood ghoul. There is also the case of half-humans, hybrids of ghouls and humans that can feed like normal humans and lack a Kagune while possessing enhanced abilities, but shortened lifespans. To hunt down the ghouls, several government-sponsored organizations around the world were created.

My Review:

So I enjoy the movies your name so much even reviewed the movie here, {Movie Review} Your Name. Recently the mange to it just came out and the light novel for it. Which I have gotten the light novel. So I do count manga as books you read them and they have awesome story line. Love this book so much, it’s about an girl and boy who keep switching bodies throughout the book. Kinda like freaky Friday feel going on with a huge twist at the end. Can’t really say a whole lot about the book without spoiling. Hope it comes to bluray/dvd soon so you guys enjoy the anime. In meantime you can pick up the light novel and manga to tide you over. With the manga it’s not the whole story as there an book two coming out in fall.  So if you an big anime nerd like me you might fall in love with this book and the movie. So Happy Reading!
