Overall, this was a pretty good adaptation. There most likely will be a trilogy to tell the whole story, well, at least if they want to cover everything the animated series had to offer. This movie completely cuts out the rival ghouls who wish to find rize and end up kidnapping kaneke. The torture scene, as well as, the rescue scenes are cut out which makes me think that storyline will appear in the 2nd movie if they decide to continue with the live action adaptations. Then the third one will probably pick up with kaneke's transformation into the white haired ghoul when he realizes the full extent of his powers.
