Should I watch the anime or read the manga? It seems like the manga goes on a lot longer than the anime.

Read the novels for the best and broadest experience of it. The manga is ok, though you'll still miss out on a lot of character development.

The novels also have a short story collection called Beyond, that actually gives you a glimpse in what happens afterwards, so if you're looking for the full story, that's the place. Bonus points for massive feels.

The manga version with white hair is cute af but I can't say the same for the anime. No idea why they chose to redesign it, the whole post-wasp hairstyle doesn't look as good, way too fluffy, especially on the sides.

So yes, as far as the anime design goes, short brown hair Shion is better.

It's quite hardcore but you need to remember Nezumi is there for him (no matter what he says). Don't underestimate Shion, he's a good boy and he takes it like a hero.

Also, give the books a try, they're by far the best version of the story.

Speaking of fanfiction, does anyone have any recommendations?

Could go for some reunion fics or just stuff like the Beyond short stories.

Waltz was a fairly cute doujin for that matter and I also remember stumbling upon an everyday world AU, where Nezumi was a depressed celebrity and Shion just a regular guy and they were just dealing with relationship issues. Sadly cannot remember the title but it was an interesting way to look at it.

Yes, it's pretty short and fast paced so you can't complain about getting bored/wasting time if you end up not liking it. To its credit, the storytelling is done well, lots of showing rather than telling/expositioning, there's a lot of impactful scenes and an interesting enough premise.My only bone to pick with it is how their relationship is depicted, that is kind of unhealthy and abusive (as opposed to the manga and LN) because it tries to adhere to BL tropes.

I personally liked it but then I ended up reading the LN and it was on a whole different level, so now I'm biased as hell. Then there's the manga, which holds the upper hand as far as visuals go and also features a story closer to the novel's canon.

As for things to like about it:
Postapocalyptic dystopian universe. War never changes, the world is now fucked and humanity's pulling a Brave New World type of deal.
Smart kid meets angsty rebel. They research a freak outbreak of killer insects while plotting to burn down the status quo.
Have some depth to them. They do a lot of growing up, both of them. Have good chemistry. There is also canon same sex romance.
Brutal. Have a box of tissues at hand, just in case.

Again, I'm biased, so I'm gonna go with the 'Watch the thing but read the LN and/or manga for the best experience and full story'. Main difference is character development and relationship, which is far more wholesome and fleshed out. The ending also makes far more sense.
>canon same sex romance
now that's what's important

how dark is the book?
Depends on what you're used to. I've seen a few people complaining it's too dark at times but I found it pretty balanced. There is a lot of wholesomeness to go with it.

MCs are grittier, especially Shion, so I guess it shocks a lot of people coming from the anime to see him like that.There's a good reason why Nezumi says he's afraid of him. They go through far more testing experiences and they are never the same people they were two pages ago.

There's a good deal of violence and death but it's amazingly well written and well paced. I suppose the darkness comes from the fact that it focuses on the psychological rather than the blood and gore. It's depressingly realistic in this regard, since neither of them is a hero and no violent act is without consequences. The book spares you none of it because one of the main themes is how the cycle of hatred/violence works, how people turn "evil" due to trauma.

A lot of stuff is implied as well, especially in arcs concerning supporting characters. It shows a lot of ugly sides to the whole revolution idea, mainly that there are always innocent casualties and meaner goals at play (see: Yoming's arc). Also the occasional sexual assault reference.

Then there's the whole correctional facility arc, which goes all the way but again, the emphasis is still on the psychological aspects. It's supposed to be difficult and push them to the limit, since it's a symbolic descent into hell. I'd also argue that the character development they go through there is nothing short of impressive.

So all in all, given how it ends, I'd say it's more bleak than dark. Not gonna sugar coat it, it's depressing. And that's ok, because it's meant to tackle heavy themes.

tl;dr Yeah, pretty fucking dark but the awesome kind of dark.
They did steal the opening for Tokyo ghoul opening song
Can someone post in a spoiler or info on said canon sex scene.....
Only read part of the manage and I've seen the anime(how I found the show). Do they all end the same way I guess? Kinda a meh ending from what I remember.
Spoiler: it's same sex romance not sex scene. No steamy stuff, sadly.

>Do they all end the same way I guess?

Manga and LN share the same conclusion, except the novel is followed by a few short stories called Beyond that go into what happens after. The final one slaps you with an open ending or cliffhanger, depending on how you want to look at things. Either way, if you want a proper ending I suggest reading one of these versions. It's basically what makes the difference between a mediocre story and a good one.

Anime breaks off after they reach their goal. It's awful by comparison and makes little to no sense. Those last minutes are there only to bank on shock value and the conclusion is both cheesy and cuts away from the most important aspects of the plot (like what the fuck happens to No.6 itself, what really happens to them, what the hell did they accomplish).
Did the girl die and and where I which is the best ending if guess? All same author?
Needless to say this but SPOILERS:
yes, in all versions. The way it happens is also foreshadowed a lot in the LN and manga versions.
>best ending
Manga and LN. Manga knows how to focus on certain important moments and makes them hit harder. LN has tension and suspense done well (like whether Nezumi ever confesses his feelings or not).

It also doesn't end with the correctional facility arc but carries on to the aftermath in the city. BONUS: the morning after, when the dust has finally settled.

Beyond's ending (the short stories) only thickens the plot and adds at least two new conflicts.

>All same author
Yes, it's all Atsuko Asano's writing. Manga is drawn by Hinoki Kino and you can see the love and care she put in each frame. I don't know much about the anime's production, other than it being done by Bones (and that they censored a lot of scenes).
Thanks anon. I guessed anime took some from manga, but I wanted to know if all written material was the same person. Sorry for my piss poor post earlier. I felt sorry for the girl so I was curious.
I forgot to ask. Manga and ln same ending mostly, aside from beyond? Wondering if I need to read em all or ln would be alright

It's ok anon, I'm the one who's TED-talking this thread to death, so sorry for that. She's an awesome character and the best recreated in the anime adaptation if you ask me.

LN has the full story, with all the subplots and all the character kinks and quirks. Also a lot of adorable moments and fun banter between Shion and Nezumi which didn't make it into the manga because obvious time/space/budget limitations. There is some mad chemistry at work there.

Manga is a treat. Doesn't venture any new details but it's nice to have the story in a visual format. As I said before, the art is beautiful and incredibly expressive.You can tell the artist was a fan of the LN. Massive feels.
You're good. Nice to have someone actually give info on something on 4chan for once. So both endings same, just in depth details with the LN? Sounds like I'll pick it up sometime. I haven't read the manga since I watched the show, years ago. I always remembered the story though. Some reason it always seemed unique to me.
