“A truly pleasing ride that sensibly explores the narcissistic dynamic of the image/ego between the subject and the Other/other.”
“The narrative’s beginning and finale do not fail to deliver the right ingredients to turn this narrative into a satisfying visual experience.”
“Notwithstanding this flaw, Tokyo Ghoul still remains one of the better high-budget live-action adaptations to appear in recent years. It even serves as a perfect introduction for newcomers to Ishida’s world of ghouls.”
