    Whoever you empathise more with?

    It's one of the reasons I enjoy the manga so much.

    Both or no one

    because this the theme of Tokyo Ghoul: the world is twisted and fucked up, a victory for one side is always a loss for the other, and if both sides truly understand each other a lot of these losses wouldn't be necessary

    Ken Kaneki is the only one with a place in both worlds, and we are observing how he developes, succeeds and fails in this dark and nasty place.

    I vote Ghouls because they at least have a compelling reason to kill, unlike humans.

    The manga is sat out so that in the first part (Tokyo Ghoul) you see the world and suffering from the perspective of a ghoul. Where as in the second part (Tokyo Ghoul RE) you see it from the perspective of an investigator. You are clearly meant to "root" for both parts. As they are both suffering and fighting.

    If you don't root for the clowns you're not a true TG fan. Roma is clearly the audience surrogate
