A 19-year-old university freshman, Kaneki Ken received an organ transplant from Kamishiro Rize, who was ironically trying to kill him before she was struck by a falling i-beam and seemingly killed. After the operation, Kaneki began developing ghoul-like tendencies and his rationality began to wane. As both human and ghoul, he often fights with his ghoul side in order to keep his ghoul identity a secret and continue to live as a normal human being.
I’ve been getting a lot of Tokyo Ghoul emails lately. This show must be pretty famous! I’d better start watching more recent anime just to keep myself in the loop!
