Read full description of the books 東京喰種―ョ― [々] [Tokyo Guru Hibi]:Due to my prior foray into the world of spin-off light novels not being a very enjoyable one, I was extremely wary going into this one. Luckily, I didn’t have to be! This book was absolutely fantastic.
I think what didn't work for me with Kuroko no Basuke -Replace- (the previous light novel I’ve read) was that it seemed a bit pointless. It might as well have been a collection of five fanfictions, because they didn't really actually add anything to the existing story, provide new insight, or anything like that. That definitely compromised my enjoyment of it, but it was even worse because it wasn't like the stories were at least also entertaining or enjoyable on their own (with the exception being the first story).
Days on the other hand provided insight into the lives of the other characters that we weren't able to see due to the main story focusing on Kaneki and his troubles so much. This doesn't just feel like fanfic because it actually added to the series in a meaningful way and provided new information. It was also really cool and useful seeing what goes on inside of the other character's heads, and how they perceive Kaneki. It was also extremely satisfying how all of the stories in Days were connected in some way, which created a unity that really brought the book together as a whole. Each of the stories were also very enjoyable and could stand strong on their own.
The only thing that bothered me was something that is annoyingly prevalent in a LOT of anime and manga: Pitting women against each other. There are a lot of series wherein the main girl character will have one girl best friend, but then every other girl is evil and against them. Not cool. So it was pretty disappointing to see this being done in one of the stories here as well. This didn’t bother me so much that I would knock off a star off my rating or anything, but it is definitely something I didn’t appreciate.
Other than that, like I’ve already said, this was a great read. I was worried it would end up being boring, unenjoyable, and useless like Replace was, but it was absolutely not. I one hundred per cent recommend it to people who are fans of the main series. It would also probably be interesting to people who have never heard of the series, though it might be a bit confusing because they didn’t put much too much emphasis on the world-building in this novel. It also definitely helps to already have knowledge about the timeline. But still. Good stuff.
