Tokyo Ghoul has so many memorable quotes, and in today’s article, I have handpicked 20 quotes which stood out to me the most.
The Tokyo Ghoul anime is based on the dark-fantasy manga series which is made by Sui Ishida. It follows a college student named Ken Kaneki who undergoes a transformation into a half-ghoul after he is nearly killed by his date.

Juuzou Suzuya may be crazy, but at least he is truthful.

One of the best Kishou Arima quotes from Tokyo Ghoul.
“Sometimes good people make bad choices. It doesn’t mean they are bad people. It means they’re human.”– Kishou Arima

This is an unfortunate truth which applies to so many things.
