Tokyo Ghoul

Tokyo MX 2014

Ken Kaneki is a bookworm college student who meets a girl names Rize at a cafe he frequents. They're the same age and have the same interests, so they quickly become close. Little does Kaneki know that Rize is a ghoul - a kind of monster that lives by hunting and devouring human flesh. When part of her special organ - "the red child" - is transplanted into Kaneki, he becomes a ghoul himself, trapped in a warped world where humans are not the top of the food chain.

So... the show got it's second season. Was it worth it? Totally not. It turned to utter trash (from an already messy adaptation). S2 further diverts from the actual story it adapts (not that I've read it nor do I want to) but it's all with the supposed consent and input of the author - which is cool.. if it made any sense. They throw in so many characters we're supposed to give a shit only to involve them in things we know jack about. The show does in no way stand on it's own feet. Heck, the MC by this point is even harder to grasp. How great is it to have edgy fights with boring choreography and constant spasm of god awful animation! I'm floored how some people seriously liked the season. The only slightly redeeming thing was the anticlimactic last episode but it's by no means good. Downgraded my overall rating from a "5" to a "4" (S2 is a 2/10).

Tokyo Ghoul is one hell of a disappointing adaptation and thus fits in perfectly in the season... Who ever did the planning on this failed miserably leaving the anime rather flawed. Without having read the manga we apparently get like 70+ chapters in just 12 episodes but it isn't just that - the arcs are not in order. As a result the characterizations are suffering and I can't say the story had a good flow. They pretty much picked out the action and went with that. Only in the last episode we got to see some of the inner workings but it's not like that cleared anything up. Just like the manga this week the anime ended on a cliffhanger although that is still better than trying to do an original end. The story seems to have some interesting ideas but with the manga now having no clear outcome either you can't even say "read the manga"... Production wise the show was alright although suffering from ever present censorship of the gore or even leaving out certain mutilations. With the uncertain future of TG's story I would not recommend checking it out.

_I don't read manga much. So, most of my anime reviews are purely based on the animated adaptation._ Being one of the more popular anime in recent years. It uses this popularity to embrace the fact that, while possibly not adapting from the manga completely. The show manages to find its footing and has a level head through the first season. So for me, the first season is the best and is actually really good. Delving into the concept of change and perspective. It's very interesting how the show develops the audience's understanding of this world. How evil and good aren't defined by what you are, but how you are treated. Obviously being a metaphor for racism in the most extreme way. But it works well. Driving the point home with this great ensemble of characters that you grow to love and hate. Really having a sense of character focus rather than an overall world perspective, keeps it grounded and alive while watching. While it does suffer from the normal anime tropes sometimes, it still feels original in a way and deserves the praise it gets. The second season I know deviates from the manga almost entirely. But going from season 1 to this isn't jarring at all if you just watch the anime. It fits and feels the same. However, it loses that grounded feeling once it begins to explore the overpowered aspects of ghouls. It lost me a bit, but still found it's home with still focussing on these characters we've been introduced to before. Serving as a gateway to a final arc to the story, it holds the series up even through all its shortcomings. As I found the ending satisfying in of itself. The third and I presume to be final season started off interesting and likeable. But when Part 2 came around, I basically lost interest and so did the show it seems. Ditching characters that were just there for filler and having no real impact on the protagonist during Part 1. As it reintroduces the other cast we knew and loved. They seemed sour and undeeded in the end. As Ken's transformations I felt were very rushed and held no weight. Making him feel more like a sideshow rather than a leading character in a show. A true disconnect was not felt at Part 1, but actually at Part 2 surprisingly. Ken hasn't seemed to learn from his mistakes, even though that's what the overlining arc was? It just didn't make sense at all and felt so uninspired. A true let down for the series. But, it did have its ups. The animation, while not as stylised and fluid as season 1, still looked damn good. This season went on for too long and tried to build up something that never came to be. It rushes into things that were never seeded. As a result, it has an unsatisfactory viewing experience. Not worth the 3-year wait. **Season 1** _Tokyo Ghoul_ **- 8/10** **Season 2** _Tokyo Ghoul √A_ **- 6.5/10** **Season 3** _Tokyo Ghoul:re Part 1 + Part 2_ **- 4.5/10** _**Overall - 6.3/10**_

Well, the third season is very boring compared to the 1 and 2.

Never read the manga for this, but WOW!! Cannot believe the stuff that goes down in season one. Shocking moments, heart wrenching scenes, and so much ghoulish awesomeness. In love with this anime atm. Why have I not heard of this one before? Glad I happened to come across it.

原作漫画超赞的,动画制作精良,应该不会让人失望

1st season, cool i like it. 2nd season, ok alright, not that bad... 3rd season, What the f is happening, what am i watching right now? what happened??! 4th season, oh, ok i see.. well, that's pretty boring to be honest.. (also a lot of the supposedly diseased characters came back to life for some reason that was never explained.. omg i have so many questions at this point, but don't really care about the answers ) Very disappointed :/

last season read from manga cause there is like 10eps from the manga they didnt make

avatar

Keep hoping that the show will get better, but so far it seems to be more confusing and annoying more and more with every episode .... wish it stayed like season 1........ its frustrating

avatar

I wonder how much they are going to change the season 3 from the manga, Ireally hope they are similar cause the manga is really good!
