Ah nice, they introduced Yoshimura this episode nice. He's quite an important character.

Poor Kankei though ;_;

Good to see Nishiki again I suppose even though I don't like him much. Looks like they did adapt parts of the manga though with Nishiki stomping on hide. Ouch. Decent episode although I wonder how the pacing will go from this point.

I gotta say though, Kaneki was awesome this episode. His development with his powers is quite something already.

That censoring... I don't like. Other than that, it was a good episode. I really liked the opening and I saw Suzuya in it!

All that damn censoring. Well i'm dropping it for now and wont pick it up until they get to the manga current arc. Plus since they rushing it so quick even though its a top selling manga probably be soon for that arc to show up. For those of you who watched Attack on Titan was it rushed like this because i only read the manga.

Totally ruined the fight scene.

Another awesome episode once again, it will be interesting to see how Kaneki develops as a Ghoul and what the people who are helping him do for him now that he is a ghoul.

The censoring is strong in this one.

Nice episode. The opening was really good and music. They showed a lot of spoilers in it. Now I feel like this might be really rushed because they showed Ken with white hair. The fight was good. Having Ken see Rize was just overkill. Damn thought he was gonna snap right there. Love how they are using her. They changing a lot things, but hopefully they just don't fly through this.

3/5.

The opening and the ending seem nice.
The pacing was slower than that of the first episode although from the scene with Mado and Amon I can predict what they're going to do for the upcoming episodes and mainly what eneding they will give.
The censoring was indeed awful. It seems they're changing some scenes from the manga again. I hope they will improve because the manga needs to have an anime that's just as awesome.

I wonder if that awkward censoring filter they used will be gone in the blu-ray/dvd release?

I hope so.

Awkward censorship aside, this was a good episode.

Well last week it was 5 chapters.
This week since Yoshimura is introduced they covered 4 chapters.

So if they are adapting 4-5 chapters per episode that's approximately 1 volume per 2 episodes.
Since there are 13 volumes of content for Tokyo Ghoul as of now that means the chances for a 2-cour or 2nd season are good right!?

Is Tokyo MX known for censoring? I wish it wasn't censored this badly.

AOT wasn't rushed but it had troubled pacing. It was slow in some parts and exaggerated and dragged on other parts of the manga. It also had censorship but it wasn't as bad because the anime art style was much cleaner and better than the manga's art style.

~Flesh, Blood, and Coffee~ I could make it as a ghoul.

Still interested to see how the Ghouls are dealt with in society, and how the Ghouls are organized themselves.

The alternate artwork during the fight scene was interesting, where everything was discolored except the blood of course.

Yoshimura seemed pretty cool for taking care of Ren.
Didn't expect Hide to just be kicked aside like that. That fight >.> It seemed pretty gruesome even with the censoring.
Despite everything, Touka does still help Ren.
Hide was listening and Ren has to eat human flesh so that he won't harm the one's he values. That close to eatting Hide!
That Mado guy at the end is kinda creepy.

Good episode :)

I just hope that censoring at the beginning will be a one time thing. They friggin covered the entire screen black -.-

And I wonder if that Negative part during Kaneki's fight was also censoring? It was quite an awesome ownage though ^^

Absolutely LOVED THE OP SO MUCH!!! Both song and Sequence...Gonna be tough to top this one this season for me :3 Esp loved the wings and Kaneki's masked face :O And is that white haired guy at the end of the OP Kaneki? Can't wait to see the process he goes through to become that.

Master seems like quite the BA! His words of comforting were nice telling him he's both human and ghoul. Hide was awake :O

Nishiki is one F***N SOB!! I raged when he was stepping on Hide and vomited on him >~<!! Loved seeing him get owned! Also lol so much at the end with them asking Nishiki how he knows the taste of horse shit XD

I'm totally loving Rize's seductive scenes. DAT SEDUCING KANAHANA!!! <3<3<3

Also seems like Toka got a bit injured from fighting Kaneki. I guess he gave her a tough time? She looked really pretty in the last scene with the butterfly :D And she looked friggin BA when she spread those red wings before fighting him :D

The fucking censoring jesus christ. I'm tempted to wait for BDs, but aside from the censors it's a pretty enjoyable show.

I guess I'll just rewatch it a year from now.

well censoring is something you cannot help, since that's how things are. We gotta deal with it since this happens all the time.

Otherwise, this episode was pretty true to the original manga and that's what I like about it.

Ahhh that BGM when our protagonist starts to go nuts. That art, that art was pretty good I must say

I liked the censored part. However, I must say that the OP was strange.

such high voices

the ED had some great art

The censorship was so extreme in this episode.

I would enjoy it more if I could get to see those blood splattering around.

Nice OP and ED, interesting episode but I feel like the MC will be pathetic later on. Keen for much character development and the censoring really didn't bother me, however the way it was done was very inconvenient.

Personally i don't think that censorship of gore should be a turn off. If the series is that good then having more or less gore shouldn't be a problem as long as they aren't changing scenes to make the tone feel lighter.

Great episode. Awesome OP.

That censoring at the beginning though.... I couldn't even tell what was happening

The post-ED skit was a bit out of place but funny nonetheless.

Looking forward to next week. 5/5

Yay Nishiki~
And white Kaneki in the opening double yay~ I just hope it won't be rushed.
And yeah, Hide totally (probably lol) knows that Kaneki is a ghoul.
Oh, also Amon, triple yay. :D
Well, the episode was great but I'm worried a bit about pacing and stuff because they are making some changes from the manga. And I hope producers won't ruin this anime by rushing it too much and then making their own ending. I would be so furious because manga is just effin' awesome.

So that's the reason why Hanazawa, Kana wasn't removed on the MC list because Rize will be torturing Kaneki to become a Ghoul by being like a hallucination huh?

WTF is that epilogue instead of the Preview! It's really awesome that they added that gag part! I lolled so much on Nishio eaten a horse manure since he said that food taste like horse crap!!!

Awesome!!! They adapted Chapters 5 to Chapter 9 of the Manga! and they also added the important detail/scene from Chapter 4 that was been skipped on the first episode.

So far it became really good this episode since they didn't skipped anything and they animated it so good despite the gory scene being censored... Anyway, I can take it that way... Can't really wait for the next episode next week!

I really hope this gets 24 Episodes after all.
Again a pretty good episode, the Rize parts weren't in the manga but I kind off like them a lot. Censorship was... no comment.
Fell in love with the Opening and the Ending is also quite good, especially the art.

damn if they doesnt censored that part when kaneki and nishiki are fighting it would be a totally gruesome and gorish scene (muehhehe which of course i love haha)

Nishiki really look like that guy from persona 4 with orange hair. and wow Kana Hanazawa voicing Rize is just too sexy :p

Same thing ppl have been saying. Pretty good second episode, but the censoring part was noticeably annoying in some scenes xp...

The brutal scene where Kaneki totally rips Nishiki apart reminded me of the black and white scene in Kill Bill. Looks kinda like the trick Tarantino used in that movie to make the scene less 'bloody'...

Now, I'm just wonderig if Nishiki really died? It seems a bit early for him to be killed off? He just seemed to be the kind of character who's always gonna be a thorn in the MCs' asses...

The only thig I'm slightly disappoited abt so far is that I dont really understadn or had any idea abtwhat normal ppl really thought abt ghouls. I'm not sure why, but some things feel a little unexplained or seem to lack some foreshadowing... hmm...

Oh yeah, I'm kinda likin Hide more and more. He really seems like a good friend, n it'll be interesting to see how he acts in the following episodes since he knows abt Kaneki bein half ghoul. The flash back where Hide and Kaneki first meet was a bit cliche tho... xp...
The most annoying thing about some anime is that they don't know when they've died...
