Enter the World of Ghouls in Tokyo Ghoul
What makes Tokyo Ghoul different from other anime is that it is set in a world where ghouls exist.
Ghouls are creatures who look like normal human beings but can only survive by eating human flesh. They survive by hiding their true identity from society.
When they try to find a target or protect themselves from authorities, they use masks or different names.

The Four Owls in Tokyo Ghoul
While some might think that Owl is one person, they would be surprised to know that there are actually other ghouls who use the same code name.
In fact, there are four of them. Keep reading to learn more about them!
The first Owl introduced in the series is Yoshimura. He was the owner and manager of Anteiku who took Kaneki in and had him work there.
He was first called the One-Eyed Owl even if the true One-Eyed Owl was his daughter.
He pretended to be the One-Eyed Owl to protect her and cover up her horrific behavior as he felt that it was his responsibility.
After the CCG discovered his true identity, the organization categorized him as the Non-Killing Owl.
Yoshimura’s daughter is Eto Yoshimura, the true One-Eyed Owl. She was the founder of the Aogiri Tree.
She was given an SSS rating by the CCG for her terrifying attacks. She hid her identity by using the name Sen Takatsuki, who was a famous novelist.
The next Owl is Seidou Takizawa, who was a low-ranking CCG investigator before he was turned into a ghoul.
Commonly known as T-OWL, Takizawa was the first successful One-Eyed Owl made by Kanou.
The last Owl is Amon Koutarou or A-OWL. He was originally a ghoul investigator who fought against Kaneki a couple of times before he was taken by the Aogiri after the Ghoul Suppression Arc.
He was a failed version of the One-Eyed Owl but his skills and abilities were unlike any other.
He eventually coordinated with Goat and CCG to save Kaneki towards the end of the series and even killed Donato Porpora who controlled Eto’s body after she was defeated by Furuta Nimura.
