    Anime could have done 16 episodes and been really good, drug on too much for it to get to the best parts.
    -Of course the best parts are so heavily censored it's ridiculous.

    The manga suffers from pacing, but is a good manga overall.

    I agree, Anime has too many loose ends and they skipped a lot they should've risked their budget for a 24 episode anime season but I can't decide that. Manga a little bit of dragging on and a couple/many loose ends but overall I still got my satisfaction from it

    Anime:
    Actually the manga is pretty short in length, you could have done a small(16 episode) series and if you made it HQ it would have been pretty damn good. The biggest problem with the current anime is they spend so much time on the fucking food gourmet asshole(who isn't even important overall) that the best parts(i.e. white haired kaneki) weren't done in full.

    Though this is mostly because the people producing it(pierrot/funimation) aren't a great team. Had this been from a more competent team, the series would have handled better.
    ----------------------------------------------------

    The manga is pretty good but suffers from this really weird pacing issue and lack of focus. It resembles Index/Railgun in that there is this weird sciencey organization behind everything, but the actual presence of it isn't felt in full.

    I like the art though, it's refreshing to have a different art style for a change.

    Once the anime ends I'll probably marathon the manga since I've liked the anime so far.
