This is great, I really really enjoyed it. The characters are incredibly well written, I actually cared for them and was constantly changing between wether I wanted the ghouls or the investigators to win. The action was amazing and was very diverse due to all the different abilities ghouls have. The ending of the first season was brilliant, it just was. Kaneki is a great protagonist, he develops a lot throughout each episode and is really enjoyable to watch him do so. It sadness me though because my view of the first seasons is dampened by how historically underwhelming Tokyo ghoul:re was. For that it gets 8/10 instead of 9
