Tokyo Ghoul is one such anime character that over the years has cultivated a loyal following with dedicated fans and cosplayers. Now you too can make a splashing entry at your next local Tokyo Ghoul cosplay as your favorite character, with so many high-quality props from the show available. Before that, some background about the show.

What is Tokyo Ghoul?

At its core, Tokyo Ghoul is a dark fantasy, horror, and supernatural thriller written by Sui Ishida. A thrilling experience to watch with superb writing and character development.

Animes have a demographic breakdown. The general demographics are Shonen, Shojo, Kodomo, Seinen, and Josei. Tokyo Ghoul is targeted towards the Seinen demographic.

Seinen translates to ‘youth,’ which is to say that this anime is meant to be watched by young adult men. However, given just how entertaining it is to watch, we wouldn’t be surprised if older people were into it as well.

Interesting Characters Complimented by a Gripping Story

Tokyo Ghoul’s setting sees ghouls living a secret life amongst humans. These human-like creatures sustain life by feasting on human flesh. Here’s the interesting part — the ghouls can survive by only eating human flesh.

They are constantly on the run and want to hide their true identity from the authorities for obvious reasons. The ghouls are made out to be significantly more physically capable than any human. They are faster, stronger, and have tougher skin in general.

The main plot follows Ken Kaneki, who finds himself in what will be a very memorable date. Rize Kamishiro, Ken’s date turns out to be a ghoul, and both find themselves in a deadly situation.

Ken wakes up in a hospital and finds out that his date did not make it. The only reason Ken came out alive was that he had some of Rize’s organs transplanted into him, turning him into a half-ghoul.

The story picks up from there. Managers of the ‘Anteiku’ coffee shop, who are ghouls themselves, teach Ken their ways. Thus, starts Ken’s internal struggle with his new life, and he fights between his two identities.

The story is as gripping and interesting as it sounds. The character progression is top-notch, and the writing is fantastic. So, it doesn’t come off as any surprise why the show has such a following and why so many cosplayers go all-out dressing up as their favorite characters from the show.
