Florida Comic Cons, a news site that covers conventions and cosplayers, recently posted a blog titled ‘Tokyo Ghoul 101‘ that gives you the basic info on the popular show. And below is a preview of the blog, which goes into the manga and tells you why Tokyo Ghoul falls into the category of anime horror.

The Manga

The three seasons of anime — Tokyo Ghoul, Tokyo Ghoul √A and Tokyo Ghoul:re. — are based on the manga series of Tokyo Ghoul that was published between 2011 and 2018. 

The plot involves a college student named Ken Kaneki who is attacked by a ghoul who feeds on human flesh. He later receives an organ transplant from the ghoul, becoming part monster.

why it’s anime horror

Anime horror is legit horror. And Tokyo Ghoul is an example. The show/manga has blood, gore, torture, and mild body horror, not to mention the serial killers and mass murderers — all of which places it into the horror category. In addition, some consider the manga to be more extreme horror than the anime show.
