Man, censoring doesn't usually get to me but this ep just annoyed me so much with it >_<.

Other than that I really enjoyed it. Was not expecting Rize to show up already. Really, really hoping they don't go through the manga too quickly. There is so much potential.

So you're a human... not a monster like them... suuuuure...

Oh great, censoring... only like 90% of the screen this time... meh...

Poor Kaneki... not being able to eat what he likes anymore T.T

Yeah Kaneki, you need to eat, Hide will taste really good XD.

Nishio was doing some really important things there Hide!

LOL, Hide got sent flying XD.

YEAH!!! Good job Kaneki for kicking Nishio's ass and stabbing him a million times over and whatnot lol.

Hunger has made Kaneki go mad...

Hmmm... so Hide was actually awake or did he wake up right then?

Another good episode even this time around.

Good episode, except for the censoring.
Interesting negative color scheme during the fight.

I'm enjoying this more each episode. Go Kaneki owned that jerk to bad he keeps getting trolled by Rize. The Opening and Ending are good. I really enjoy the opening its unique.

...Dont mind the censoring though I dont get what happened at the beginning.

What were the pictures in the ED from? The one with Kaneki is really cool. This one:

Overall a good episode. But (even though I can realte somewhat and still sound like a douche) - I fear Kaneki's going the same way as Raki from Claymore and Yuki from Mirai Nikki - crying and whining all the damn time.
Like I said, I can relate somewhat, but for episode two they could've done some scenes with a fountain instead of him ._.
Also, the censoring was way too overdone -_-
W/e, Touka is somewhat awesome, if he's getting to annoying I'll watch the show for her :v

This episode was pretty boss. Damn i feel very bad for Kaneki...

But it was so good to see him kick Nishiki's ass! Woot woot. Hope to see more next episode. 5/5 for this one.

Great episode, was getting a Deadman Wonderland vibe from this c:

Amazing, DMWL was a bad adaption too. I hope at least they don't change the ending as much as DMWL's was screwed up.

Tony777 said:
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.


And there's no way that we can say how much they will animate. At their current pacing in 12 episodes they will get, in all their rushed glory, to the Aogiri arc - which we'd known from the PV's. However when the PV's were released no one assumed it would be a one cour series.

Honestly, if it does end up as a two cour series that does 65 chapters or so in 12 episodes I'll wait for the translations rather than watch the series. But I doubt that it will be two cour - if it was then there'd be no reason to rush so much or add in random crap.

At least the OP's good.

But why the hell is Rize in this series so much, are they just trying to get their money's worth out of Kana Hanazawa? It makes the events of the Aogiri arc far less impactful.

Welp, a lot of censoring :/
But still, it was good.

I really thought he would eat Nishiki. I mean, it's a good compromise, to eat ghoul, no?

So Ken is actually one of a kind. They never saw a half-human, half-ghoul hybrid. That can be interesting.

Somehow, the Op reminded me of Psycho-Pass... Am I wrong?

The scene after the ED was so fucking hilarious xD
Also, we know what the weird wrench guy look likes. I'm really curious about if he's a ghoul or not...

Oh come on... I would've wanted to see his best friend get killed or eaten, but I guess it'd be too much asked from a third rate anime like this.

The first couple of minutes where 95% of the screen was black was ridiculous. At least they inverted the fight which makes it super easy to actually see all the blood. Decent episode, didn't really excite me.

Why do people complain about Funimation censoring shows? Funimation does NOT censor shows themselves, they get the tv broadcast versions that are given to them for streaming. Obviously we aren't gonna see uncensored stuff until Japanese bds start rolling out. Shut up now.

As for the episode, it was very good. It was very intense, especially when Kaneki went pretty much ape shit and almost are his friend. I'm also guessing Kaneki's friend overheard the conversation between him and Yoshimura? Wonder how that will go.

I always wondered about that. When people say "this tastes like shit"...so that means they must know what shit taste like because they've eaten shit before right? I think I'll be using this from now on if someone ever says that about my cooking.

Good Ep nice voice acting , all the black light blur all the blood and gore away , but you know what ? that's what BD are for , there are many people watching TV so better save than sorry , you don't want anime to get cancel alright ? so plz don't whine(unless you fund the anime , own TV station or satellite or be japanese PM) it's so pointless , wait and BUY BD for better quality, this anime deserve it.

PS.But I gotta admit that watching this show make me drooling ,idk why, i just notice after the ED credit roll that my saliva is currently dropping on the floor..... what happen to me XD

The struggle is real.
You really can't blame Kaneki for his indecisive nature of whether he wants to keep his humanity or not. As noted when he almost ate his best friend, he runs risk of letting Rize's binge eating habits take over him.
With that said, I'm really interested on the insight of how Ghouls are forced to live and how they fit in with the rest of society.

Exactly. The sooner the better, the rest of us can enjoy the show. It's without a doubt one of the best this season has to offer.

That censoring ruined an epic fight. Still it was a good episode. Soundtrack also suited to background very well. I'm wondering will every bloody battle be censored like this?

No problem man! The gory fight scene looks a million times (yes, a million) better once you invert it.

Pretty much what most logical people would do if they didn't like something, however MAL users don't think that way (hence so many people continuing to watch SAO2 and bitch about it).

slower than the previous episode, I hope the anime has about 24 episodes, so the story can be crafted
good opening and ending, but I felt the lack of red in the blood in the struggle between Kaneki and Nishio

I intend to drop this. Mostly because of the stupid censoring.
Secondly, I found this seri starts kind of ridiclious, after the episode 1, I read about ~ 40 chapters of the manga, it seems like they hadn't explain that why ghoul is exist and much more questionable things.
I don't like to be get throwed a ghoul suddenly in the face without explanation, all I see after is stupid morality.
This is the same problem I have with anime Shiki, geez.

A question for the manga readers: How good does the anime adapt the manga so far ?

Honestly, I think the pace in the manga can be really slow sometimes...but I guess that could work as a build up. I think the adaption has covered up the main points of the manga so, so far, I think the adaption is pretty okay.

If the lack of explanation is what you don't like about this series, then I can bet you're not a fan of snk then. Anyways this episode was pretty good, the censoring is a bit too much.

Poor Kaneki. The scene where Hide was kicked and get thumped on and when Kaneki feels the urge to eat him was pretty intense. After seeing characters death scene in many other anime I was afraid that Hide will really die but thank goodness he still survive. I am sorta relieved that Hide knows the fact that Kaneki is half ghoul..
The OP's song is amazing. Really fits the mood.

If the lack of explanation is what you don't like about this series, then I can bet you're not a fan of snk then. Any was this episode was pretty good, the censoring is a bit too much.

If you meant SNK = Shingeki No Kyojin then you're correct. I do hate it too, but not most because of lack information. If I remember correctly they have mentioned the year Titan appeared and the recently OVA atleast opened my mind a bit.
Anyway, Let's talk back to TG, there are few ridiculous things pop out in my head:
1) There is many ghoul out there, they eat people for living, so why in the day people not showing they are scare or discussing about the ghoul, or atleast any news to tell them not go outside at night. The CGG (or CCG) looks poor and patheic.
2) The ghoul, which I hated most. Just jerking around and talk about morality and life while eating people's organ. When the main character turned in to the ghoul. They just like "Hey, you're ghoul. I'm gonna teach you how to live like a ghoul without any information about how we're born"

Forever glad that Hide survived. The fact that he's in the opening gives me hope that he'll at least be around for a few more episodes. I'm really interested in knowing how he's going to act on the knowledge that Kaneki's now a ghoul, although, it's probably far more likely that he won't react and will pretend that he really had been asleep for the whole revelation.

I had zero clue what was happening in the beginning that got censored. It looked like Kaneki? Or was it the dead guy? Merp.
