Tokyo Ghoul is an anime that could force you to take a break from the series and watch a more light-hearted show.
The gruesome imagery of flesh-devouring ghouls, the constant feeling uncertainty and despair along with the loud screams of the victims, would make you feel sick if you’re not used to gore.
Many manga readers argue that Tokyo Ghoul did a lousy job at delivering the complete story.
They are kind of right about it since the anime cuts off a lot of important, however, if you watch the anime for what it is without comparing it to the manga, then you just might enjoy it.
If you’re into dark drama and action, do give it a watch! (Before reading the manga)

The recommended order for watching Tokyo Ghoul is its release order. Watch the OVAs after completing Tokyo Ghoul √A and before beginning Tokyo Ghoul: re.
Following the chronological order is not recommended, especially if you’re a first-time viewer because you need to know the characters and their personalities before watching a story about their past.
3. Where To Start Tokyo Ghoul Manga From?
It is a well-known fact that the anime adaptation of Tokyo ghoul did not stand up to the expectations of manga readers. Even though season 1 was the most faithful to the manga, it missed out too many details, did not do justice to many characters, and made the series similar to a battle type anime.
It is generally recommended that you should read the manga right from its beginning. The characters are more fleshed out, there is an emphasis on non-battle elements along with the battle parts.
However, if you absolutely do not want to read the manga from the beginning, start from chapter 46.
Yes, season 1 does cover chapters 1-60, but it leaves out so many parts that if you skip those chapters, you won’t understand plenty of events that take place later on in the manga.
