So far so good. I jumped to the manga after the first episode - man that's awesome, I'm addicted.
Like the speed they are going for now, don't really like the introducing chapters that much.
Too bad they didn't put this into anime, that made me laugh when reading.

One thing I don't like about this anime, I must point out, is that everything is awfully over dramatic... I wish they'd tone it down a little. :(

But man, I love the way Hide ran up behind Kaneki. It was so random. XD

And Kaneki is pretty cute. The mask I see him in sometimes makes him look really cool. And with white hair, he looks so much cooler! (I'm sorry, I've got a thing for cute white haired guys...)

The censors, oh my the censors!

That scene at the end was somewhat out of place... But Kaneki just looked so cute in it, with those simple little dots for eyes... Especially from a distance!! X3

But still, from the opening it looks like some kind of love triangle between Toka, Kaneki and Rize. I'm sorry man, but I hope that doesn't become some kind of main aspect. I am not here for a romance with a girl like Toka, I just can't stand it when MCs get a love interest with those kind of girls...


Theres no love triangle, love is hardly a focus of the series its hinted at and it exists but its subtle.

So white hair in the OP. They're really going to shove 70+ chapters into 13 episodes.

I did like seeing more Rize though.

I'm happy Touka beated the s*** out of Kaneki, to be honest. But, there's something about this episode that didn't make sense to me, I don't know.

P.S.: I was dying to see Amon animated and god it was glorious he's even cuter.

I enjoyed this one alot more than the first ep...maybe because it stayed true to the manga, still fast pace but yeah, love the OP and ED especially that art in the ED.
The animation was a bit lazy still,
About the censorship, where Kaneki fights Nishiki, it was a two way street for me,

4/5

Thank god. It really did look like there was going to be some kind of serious thing between Toka and Kaneki to me. Nevertheless, I still don't like her. There are so many characters like her already in the anime industry, it's really rather dull. I don't like all the emphasis on her in the OP.

I liked the episode but like most people the censoring was really annoying, I think I might put this on hold and wait till the series finishes before I watch the rest. I think it might be more enjoyable that way.

That censoring is really awful... If just "that" is censured like that, I can't imagine how will be censured the rest...

2 episodes/1 tome ... That rush, I think really that I will drop before the end, the manga is so better

that censorship..... close to just waiting for the uncensored br. i can live with censorship but this was too much. cannot even imagine what they will do with the rest of the series. never read the manga but if they heavily censor a torn apart dead body and a guy getting pierced multiple times so much .......

i guess the rest will turn into an audio drama


other than that it was good

You do realize that Rize is dead right? Also, I'd hardly expect the MC to have any affectionate feelings for her considering she tried to eat him. The censoring is bullshit but I don't think I can hold myself to wait for the uncensored because the MC looks badass in the OP and I want to see how he gets to that point. Toka is pretty cute and interesting too.

I wasn't impressed by the fight scene. There was no reason to change the color and make that guy keep screaming, "I'm dying, I'm dying, I'm dying". Some of the acting was over the top. The screen turned black for a couple of seconds.

Aside from the censoring (which was just plain awful), a great episode.

His struggle was pretty well done and I liked Rize's appearance and how she tried tempting him. I cannot really remember Kaneki already seeing Rize at that point in the manga, so if that was anime original, I really liked that decision.
Fight scene was brief but alright if not for the censoring, although luckily not as bad as during the first few minutes of the episode :S.

I loved the OP. White-haired Kaneki looks badass! ED was also quite good thanks to those nice artworks.

They did quite a good job on this one so far. Just the censoring could be toned down a little, especially when it results in black screens.

Just saying but you can invert the color with VLC media player during the fight scene to make it look like this

Still rushing, just establishing everything, and having a "gory" fight. Very mature, very psychological indeed.
Naah, it really feels like a dark battle shounen with all this talk of friendship and even using flashbacks. There's just no time to establish and go deep into Kaneki's psyche, like at all. And ofc the blood and gore everyone's craving for is censored all over.

3/5 - Fine as an action flick, but damn the characters have no room to be established for effective drama.

Well, in manga he heard some voices and in anime they chose to assign them to Rize, which worked out quite well I think.

Pretty bad censoring, this episode seemed a little rushed. They skipped some stuff from the manga but it's still ok. 3/5 it was ok.

Well I didn't see the problem with the censoring until that scene at the start, you couldn't even see what was going on. Lol.
Oh and I totally thought they'd try make Touka more sympathetic and nicer from the start but no we see her throwing him around and punching him. Yet despite being more violent she had less expression in her face from the manga...
I don't like this thing with Rize, it's not nessesary. Again, it feels like they are just putting her in to satisfy people that like her. I bet this will get an anime original ending.

Nishiki looks like he just died..

If they didn't put her there, with all that censorship, you would have audio drama.

Haven't watch the episode yet, but since people are saying they adopted 4 chapters in this episode. I'll have to say that confirms that this series will be one cour. I doubt they will adopt all the current chapters, and the arc is not even finish for the latest chapters so yea. This series is either 13 or 12 episodes. It also looks like the censoring was over 9000!

How slow you want them to be? It will be more than 1 cour, for sure. But they have to make it watchable, as Anime are usually are.

Wow the 2nd episode was also fucking amazing. I can't wait to see what happens next episode. From the opening it looks like Kaneki is going to lose the pigmentation in his skin and hair. People need to get over the censoring, yeah it may be better without censoring but it doesn't make the show bad.

It's a decent adaption at best. That's what happens when you cover 4+ chapters an episode. Rize appearing before him is WAY too early, they should have never done it. Also, they made it seem like Hide was listening to their entire conversation, which is not the case. He only woke up when they were talking about Ken's new Job there at the shop. Hide does not know Ken is a Ghoul.



With 133 Chapters out so far, it's a 2 cour at the very minimum.

Anyways, the manga is far better. If you can set aside the "Eating Humans" element, then it becomes very enjoyable. The Manga gets extremely Epic.
