    I’m confused. If doctors put Ghoul organs in someone, wouldn’t they also prescribe human flesh or something similar to that? They perform an operation in which he can only eat human flesh and then just let him loose?

    I honestly can’t see how this premise can run for a series and not get dull after 4 or 5 eps, unless the main character gains super powers or something.

      Yet the doctors didn’t even know that ghouls exist. So they wouldn’t have known he needed human flesh. I’ve read the original manga this is based off of, he does get powers. But so far the anime has impressed me, and I’m looking forward to what more it has to offer.

        They do know that ghouls exist, but they didn’t know that Rika was a ghoul and they desperately needed organs to save the protagonist’s life. It’s safe to assume that most doctors haven’t gotten the opportunity to examine ghouls, but hey this show isn’t exactly a masterpiece of writing.

          Yeah I guess I could’ve paid a bit more attention to that last part.

          Which is even weirder because they took the organs out of a Ghoul. You’d figure that when they’re operating on the Ghoul, the physical make up or something would look different. I’m pretty sure that eating human flesh and having organs evolve to process them, would make the insides look different. Did the doctor’s even check the organs? Maybe the doctor’s are just really fucking stupid. I don’t know.

          Obviously by placing a Ghoul organ in a human body, it mutates the human body into something it is not. There had to have been a red flag somewhere.

        Ah, then with the main character gaining powers, I can see how this can keep someone’s attention through a series.
