Manga Mania, Week 3

Manga is a term used to describe comics and graphic novels created in Japan.  Since the boom of the United States' manga distribution in the mid to late 2000s, many series have found their home on our shelves.  And with so many titles to go through, Manga Mania is a 4-part series of articles where we go through a few titles for different age groups!  This week, we're continuing to cover… (more)

If there was one way to describe this, it would be..... a Tragedy

Although I already started to like the story, all the talk about organs and food made me squeamish. That’s just me though.

Great Series. If you think it is "just another ghoul story", then you will be surprise. As expect in a good manga, the characters all have depth and conflicts of their own. The number of back stories and the world it creates is so unbelievable. Layers and layers of stories reveal more and more about this twisted world. It is way more complex than those DC/Marvel simple good vs. evil. In fact, it is more complex than other manga. Spoiler: the anime takes the psychological conflicts of Kaneki and brings it out right at the beginning.

A reference to Hesse or Kafka does not make a book "deep." While obviously the text is limited in a graphic novel, the fact that the entire story is "oh no, I'm part ghoul! I don't want to eat humans!" makes it repetitive and annoying. The fact that the drawings show a complete lack of understanding of how breasts actually look on a body is just a fun little juvenile aside. If this is the best of what manga has to offer, I'll pass.

Through it all, this is still one of my favorite manga series I have read. The whole series was thrilling and kept me hooked to the point I'd binge read entire volumes in a day. The anime started out alright, but the second season went down hill in a horrific way. I recommend to just read the whole series because of how much the show changed and left out. If you enjoyed the show, you'll love the books.
