>>137511450 Well one thing is that they'll some how make the same logical conclusions to progress the plot in the anime as in the manga, but in the anime they have given you no context or information as to why they are doing it, or what is going on. That's just one reason the manga is better, they take the time to actually have the plot make some sense.
I hate defaulting to "the manga was better" but this is a case where that is definitely true.
>>137511009 People who say TG is shit when they only watched the anime are complete retards. The manga is easily one the best ongoing series atm. And before you faggots start crying, no, TG isn't the only series i read.
>>137512536 while you're right in the sense that the anime is going for a different audience, I doubt edgy teens still watch it considering it took the entire first season for something to happen. Could be wrong though, I don't really know people personally who watch anime
You essentially have the main character abandoning their home and distancing themselves from Anteiku, forcing Touka and the others to deal with it while Kaneki himself has little understanding of what's happening to him and the control he's losing. One of the best scenes is Amon seeing him devouring bodies considering Kaneki pretty much refused to fight him in season 1. Along with that you have Hide himself looking into what happened, Shinohara looking after Suzuya, Amon dealing with Mado's daughter, revelations about different ghoul characters, etc.
Don't act like there wasn't anything going on or there wasn't any story.
>>137513340 How are you supposed to understand Kaneki? There is no basis for his motivation and actions provided. What he does makes no logical sense without Kanou or without Aogiri as an enemy. Root A's draft storyboard took out the latter, but the former was still a part of the story. He's supposed to be working to eliminate what he considers to be a threat to himself, but the anime does not present this at all. It's just shit goes bad.
>>137513340 I watched season 1 and enjoyed it and watched season 2 and thought it was okay. Then I immediately read the manga from the beginning and I understood why everyone likes the manga much more.
The "story" in season 2 is just a failed attempt at creating a different timeline. It's difficult for me to pick every example buy you don't realize the plot holes until you read the manga. I was constantly saying "oh so this is why that happens" over and over again.
The only thing the anime is good for is its OST and showing Kaneki's transformation at the end of s1
>>137514136 Yeah exactly, if you're an anime only viewer you must be thinking why are they breaking this guy out, and then he isn't seen again for the rest of the series? But the manga put him in for a purpose and wasn't just some dropped plot point.
>>137511009 Is it really that bad? I must admit that I dropped the manga and the anime a while ago, because it bored me. I don't remember which part was though. I think it was after the battle with Shu on that church, but I'm not sure. I don't want spoilers, just a sincere opinion. Is it worth it?
My take on Tokyo Ghoul is a bit odd. I watched both seasons and I thought first one was 6/10 at best. But oh boy did that 2nd season crash to a 2/10. I know people always kept yelling read the manga and I gave it a try. Well I gotta give credit where it's due. The original manga is a solid 8/10. However, its continuation is something else that I barely even remember to read.
>>137511009 If you weren't so late to the party you'd know that wasn't the case when the show aired. Anyone interested in TG has had more than enough time to read the manga and know why /a/ doesn't like season 2.
>>137518783 >I've been under the assumption the Manga is a lot better. But I feel like I want to watch the Anime first and foremost. The first season is serviceable. It isn't till the second where it goes to shit. You should really just read the Manga though.
>>137511009 Both anime and manga (sequel) are nothing but garbage. Mangaka panders to fujoshis/edgy teenagers; and :re is muh power levels shonen manga with the chosen one/very special snowflake MC. TG (prequel) was ok, a readable/decent manga though. /a/ liked it, at the very least I guess.
