Ghouls live among us, the same as normal people in every way-except their craving for human flesh. Ken Kaneki is an ordinary college student until a violent encounter turns him into the first half-human half-ghoul hybrid. Trapped between two worlds, he must survive Ghoul turf wars, learn more about Ghoul society and master his new powers.

Kaneki is captured and then tortured by Yamori, one of Aogiri Tree organization’s most sadistic members. To survive the interrogation, Kaneki will have to finally surrender to the Ghoul inside him, but if he does, it will change him permanently and push him even further away from being human.

51nWqV3ISKLVolume 7 of the Tokyo Ghoul manga is the turning point which sees the anime veer way off from its source material and caused such a controversy among fans. As we outlined in our review of Season 2 of the anime, we highly recommend fans of the anime who have yet to read the manga really should read it. The new story compared to that of season 2 will provide an all new experience for fans.

Anteiku makes a final decision to go after and save Kaneki but what they don’t yet know is just what state he will be in by the time they get to him. As Tamori’s torture continues, Kaneki fights internally with the ghoul part of him, Rize, who wants to take over as the human portion of him recedes back from all the pain he is going through at the hands of Tamori.

And the always interesting and weird Juzo continues his odd behavior as a very unexpected but feared foe makes an appearance at the end: The One-Eyed Owl.

Anime always tends to be censored to some degree but the manga is anything but. The result is that Volume 7 is the most brutal yet in the series. So we will not spoil where things end up. Pre-order your copy today on Amazon.com. Release date is June 21st.
