“If you were to write a story with me in the lead role, it would certainly be… a tragedy.” – Ken Kaneki.

Aside from Kaneki, another appeal of the “Tokyo Ghoul” anime is the breath of fresh air outside our regular Shonen-Ai anime. Tokyo Ghoul did give us a delicious and balanced serving of beautiful friendships, repulsive gore, unique characters, character development, and pretty good animation for its era. We’ll be looking at how closely and seriously Sui Ishida took the characters’ birthdays. 

Without further ado, here are the official birthdays of the characters in Tokyo Ghoul!
