11 “Tokyo Ghoul” – Themed Items That Should Be On Every Fan’s Wish List
After four seasons, 30 volumes, a few side stories, two films, and a video game, Tokyo Ghoul is over. Regardless of whether or not you hated the ending, I hope we can agree that us fans weren’t ready for the story to end.
Let me just put this out there: I would absolutely duel-wield quinque if given the opportunity. That, of course, is assuming that in this world, I wouldn’t have my own kagune. Show me a Tokyo Ghoul fan who doesn’t agree with that and I’ll show you someone in deep, deep denial.
Unfortunately, we’re stuck in the real world, so we’ll have to settle for collecting things that remind us of how much we love the series.
I want you to count down from 1000 in sevens: 993, 986,979… 20, 13, 6… okay, too far. That math didn’t go exactly how I wanted it to – I wanted to hit 11, because I found 11 Tokyo Ghoul themed items that should be in your shopping cart if they’re not already in your possession.
If you haven’t read the manga yet, get on it! Both box sets come with a double-sided poster and the full season’s story. These are great collector’s items for the ultimate fan or for that person who is just getting into the manga. If you only have two of the first series or three of the second, it’s worth the cost to reorder the entire series and pass on your original copy to a friend who really, really needs to get into Tokyo Ghoul.
How long did it take you to realize that Rize and Nishio almost have the same glasses? Because I just figured it out. This pair of glasses are closer to Nishio’s, but have a softer roundness that you’ll find in Rize’s. These are a great price point if you’ve been looking to do a “quieter” Tokyo Ghoul cosplay, but you can also have your own prescription put into the frame and rock the look every day!
There was no way I was getting through this list without adding Kaneki’s signature mask. Become the ghoul that was never supposed to be with this mask that wraps all the way around your head. The eye patch comes off if you really want it to (come on) and buckles secure the entire thing to the back so you don’t have to worry about readjusting. I only wish that the ghoul eye contact was included!
No Juuzou cosplay would be complete with the signature scythe. Sure, there’s other things like the hair pins and the stitches, but this 5.5-foot weapon is almost the only thing that really matters. I mean, just look at that thing! Juuzou may be a little crazy, but you would be too if you were raised by Big Madam. Now go earn those Good Boy points!
I’ve never seen something so hideous yet so beautiful in my life. This is definitely on the stranger side of this list, but I’m telling you now that if I lived in an area that ever got actually cold, I’d never take this off. Don’t be fooled – this is polyester and not wool, which is how they’re able to get that design. Perfect for every occasion, from your classic ugly Christmas sweater parties to Halloween to your niece’s baby shower.
The sad, sad reality is that we will never get to taste Anteiku’s coffee. While it’s not just their coffee that ghouls can consume, there’s something to be said about the shop and how they take care of their own there. The news only gets worse when you realize you’ll never know what Yoshimura’s sugar cubes really taste like. This mug will at least let you pretend like you came straight from the 20th ward, so it’s a start.
This figurine is over a foot tall and comes with two Kaneki heads – one with his mask and one without. This scene recreates when Kaneki first accepted his ghoul side and broke free from the torture he was suffering at Jason’s hands, and he is still wearing the cuffs that he breaks out of. Place this figurine on a high shelf to give Kaneki a better vantage point.
What you should take from our favorite Gourmet is this – care deeply. About your meals, about your friends, about how you present yourself. Just don’t mix the concepts. Actually, you know what? Repeat after me: “I must not attempt to eat my friends.” This is hopefully less of a problem for you than it is for Tsukiyama, but it’s worth stating out loud at least once in your life. If you have a hard time remembering that, this patch might be the reminder you need.
Ryouko’s kagune is better than any umbrella because it comes with hugs but, well… you know. Since we don’t have our own kagune that can act as a shield against rain, we all need a good umbrella. If you have one, good! Now get this one, too. This mini umbrella folds out to 40” in diameter, just big enough that you’ll have to pull Touka in pretty close to keep her dry.
I’m waiting for an answer. What’s 1000 minus 7? Remember, counting down in sevens will keep you conscious, even if you go a little mad by doing so. This design will help you with the first few numbers until you get into the rhythm yourself. Don’t blame me if your hair turns white or you lose an appendage.
You can have this design put onto a variety of tops including tank tops, t-shirts, and a sweater.
This puzzle comes in 192, 500, and 1000 pieces with the final sizes varying based on pieces. The print quality is fantastic and comes with a poster to help you solve it if puzzles aren’t your thing – if they are, then hooray, bonus poster! Whether you intend to solve this alone or with other Tokyo Ghoul fans, the final piece will look great in your home. The seller gives you instructions on gluing and framing so you can display it without added stress. If it were me, I’d put in Kaneki’s eye last.
