THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Finally, pacing picked up a bit with the ghoul action. Aogiri Tree makes their move and even Kaneki shows off his powers.

Amon was fun to watch this episode. Same with Mado. Not sure how I feel about Kaneki fighting although I do think his powers have gotten better control since he fought on-screen from season 1. The fight involving him was a bit fast though imo and I bet that hit he took directly to the stomach hurt like hell. Overall decent action. It was even nice seeing the one-eyed ghouls taking some roles in this. Kaneki's fight felt a bit odd to watch though but we'll see more of what he can do next time.

Oh shit. CENTIPEDE!!!!

Loved this episode, the action was brilliantly done IMO. Aogiri raiding the CCG, how fun. So far this AU-take has been an absolute blast, and it's only getting better.

THE KANEKIPEDE! Also THAT OST AND NEW ED's ART.
The only problem is animation looks really bad.
Anyway,good episode.Fucking hype for episode 5.

Edit:Oh,Shinohara used Arata's armor with Ayato :O.

'Reaper like man'...so much win!
Nice seeing the main Aoigiri force...Eto,Noro,Kaneki,Ayato and Tataro. Would like to know what Tataras kagune looks like.

Great episode :D

So this is how they decided to reveal Centipede-kun. I can dig it.

Overall I found the animation and fluency really lacking though. Naki's kagune looked so frail, too.

i cant say i like the fighting scenes with Amon involved, too slow imo. Centipede already? wonder what Ishida has in mind. Great episode to watch.
Everybody has the right to have his own opinion on something.And you do have the right to disagree with them.But that doesnt give you the right to impose your opinion on others, even though you do have the right to think you are fucking awesome.

CENTIPEDE-Kun is coming!!!!!!!!!! SO FRIGGIN HYPED!!!!

Amazing ep once again. The animation in some parts could've been better but overall it wasn't bad.

Shachi REKT Ken so bad XD Just because he smells like Rize lol. But Ken's waifu Eto protected him :P

Donato looking creepy awesome as usual XD Esp loved the illustration of him in the ED.

Loved the way they made Ayato face off against his pops Arata as Shinohara's Quinque. Nice touch which wasn't in the manga :3

Naki getting owned by Akira and biting her same as in the manga XD Dude's too hilarious XD Too bad they left his KneeElbow XD Dat bite doe :3

Too bad no Shu+Naki interactions. I wanted to see Dat AMERICA XD

I wonder if they'll keep Suzuya's part with Shiro and Kuro the same as the manga?

Anyway as usual loved the insert song at the end ^^ I wonder how they'll handle Kanekipede?

I like how he always thinks about the people of Anteiku. He isn't in Aogiri so that he can kill and eat all he wants, he's there so that Anteiku will never be a target again.

So is it just me who have always wondered how they can struggle against 1 enemy but when there is hundreds of them, they're getting 1 shotted?

Besides that, it was a very intense episode! ^_^

starting to get boring
aogiri guys getting shot and.....die? just a silly question here but there arent humans in aogiri, are there?
also i found kaneki and shachis fight a bit misplaced and out of no where 'hey, im setting you free', 'oh you wanna fight, me too, come at me', 'explaining the situation is for pussies'
btw, fights werent that exciting.

naki seems a bit entertaining anyhow

the centipede seemed underwhelming or...."meh" for some reason.

.......i miss the coffee club

Seems like Amon and his father had a bad past.
I thought Kaneki was going to go all out against that other guy, I guess that's coming next episode so its going to be intense.

I agree to this guy on some parts, especially the random fight of Kaneki. I was just like, what the fuck?

And I do agree that the fights are boring. Feels like they spend less budget here or something on this episode.

I wonder why the ghouls go down so easily by gunshots. It was stated in the manga that guns have little effect on ghouls and that's why they made quinques. >.>

I think Q-Bullets are more effective, something the first season completely cut out, i guess.

No,they didn't.I think it was shown in episode 6 in Ryoko's fighting scene.

Yep this episode was down right terrible in my opinion, pacing felt really odd , animation was meh and the fights werent really that interesting, this series as a whole is pretty meh but the action is decent which is why i continue watching , so when they cant even do that right then theres almost no reason to watch this lol

I found it really ridiculous when the CCG was shooting at the ghouls falling down and when the bullets hit the ghouls' bodies they actually fell faster. Suspension of disbelief can only go so far, you know.

Special class investigators are generally equal to SS rated ghouls. And then there's Arima.

This episode wow :O

So Kaneki fought that guy by saving him..Mm o.o The animation wasn't great but it was still watchable and some what enjoyable. Liked all the different fights in this episode and that OST when Kaneki was getting rekt!

Excited for the next episode

WOW that animation was so AWKARD :O

I think Koreans did the animations, just look at the ed songs list of people.
The Japanese team are animating the important fights I guess, that centipede at the end was really good :O

They made Shachi into a caveman :(

Hmmm. Not bad, but a little awkwarder than few previous episodes. But all in all I love the way this season reveals the secrets little by little and the action advances little by little (at least for a watcher who hasn't read the manga). The fights weren't as good as they could have been.

Man, I'm glad they're not going manga route with this season. That QUALITY animations. :/
Some things won't make senses for anime-only watchers since they skipped quite a bit of informations compared to manga. Centipede-chan just seems like a random power-up now since he didn't really cannibalize ghouls aside from Yamori as far as this season goes. I'll keep watching just to know how they plan the story with this one.

It was still ambiguous in the manga even if it's highly predictable but this season finally confirmed that the Arata armor really came from Touka's and Ayato's father.

Centipede-kun <33333333 This episode was awesome

Didn't expect to see this so soon but damn it looks great animated, I just hope that they explain how this happened in the next episode

Overall the attack on the prison was pretty awesome....Everyone got their time to shine and there were no S1 censors for the most part(Although we got the return of the inverted colours...Like really -_-) but it was okay. Animation was decent but it could have been better in some parts

Poor Amon had to relive his childhood and Naki took a bite of my waifu :( At least they were kicking tons of butt

I know that Ayato is pissed to see that the CCG are using his dad lol but I think he's gonna get rekt regardless....I'm also looking forward to seeing Suzuya vs Kuro and Shiro...I guess we might get their flashback story in the next episode

And last but not least.....Centipede-kun is ready to fuck shit up lol....That other dude destroyed Kaneki just like this in the manga and who would have guessed that it'd be Eto who would save him lol

Kaneki x Eto OTP xD

Why does it seem like this show's animation quality is getting poorer and poorer for every episode? Shouldn't Pierrot have earned tons of #cash thanks to the first season?

Also, SLAY THEM GHOUL BITCHEZZ AKIRA! SLAY THEM!
