THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Holy shit centipede.

Decent action this episode with Kaneki and the others. This shows a lot more of his change. Not bad with the action as well although it felt a static at a few times with some foggy-like censors. Those poor one eyed ghouls as well...D: Suzuya is someone not to be underestimated. For some reason, I kinda like the OST of this particular episode. Poor Kaneki though. Best episode of the season so far.

YES, I KNEW IT! I knew we'd see



Dat centipede was amazing. Kaneki was brilliant this episode.

I loved the symbolism with Ayato and Kaneki losing and their continued quest to get stronger because they're not strong enough yet. I really saw Ayato and Kaneki with the same mindset there, no wonder they're such a great team. Newfound respect for Ayato.

Dat ending art of Suzuya was creepy. And the ED art of Tatara and the CCG guy made it look like they're rivals or have some sort of history. Subs should be out soon so I can understand their dialogue.

That was one awesome episode. Owl looked freaking amazing, and Kaneki's fight with Shinohara was done quite well imo. Also interesting that they anti-kagune gassed the entire place (though they might have wanted to consider doing that sooner).

I'm also pleasantly surprised with how they let Akira react to Owl.

Finally, an episode that i've been looking for. 5/5.
Hope the studio keeps this up. OH AND BTW, LONG TIME NO SEE CENSORSHIP !

Next episode's title is "thousand paths"
Probably an episode that will talk about Matasaka's (Shachi) past.

I didn't think we would get to see the Owl already five episodes in. But the fight with Shinohara was awesome!

This episode was AWESOME!!! Suzuya's fight with the twins, Ayato vs Shinohara, Centipede vs Shinohara! WOW! This is by far the second best Tokyo Ghoul episode I've watched (First being the 12th episode). And the OWL was a pleasant surprise as well <3!

Awesome animation and sexy ost! 20/10

As always, sexy ED art! Ishida ftw!

Man this was a good episode. The owl showed up in this episode too so that was cool. Amon got to see that the two girls became ghouls and is now questioning that humans can become ghouls.

Nice episode. Centipede FTW. Owl was oped. Now I really wonder if they are going to end anime in the same style as original manga.

F***'N OWLs appearance!!!! Totally didn't expect that. Best surprise of the ep >.<!
The way it just carried Ken and Ayato out of there was epic XD It does change one thing that had quite some impact in the manga though because there Amon repaying Kaneki's debt held quite some meaning. Here it's like Ken just got carried away. Still epic though :3

Dat CENTIPEDE!!! REKT Shinohara so hard. Loved the animation and sound effects for the centipede related stuff. Kaneki's craziness was slightly shown with his "A centipede in the ear! What's a 1000 minus 7" Ofc that scene in the manga was 200 level above it in craziness XD I'll take what I got tho :D

Ayato got annihilated by Shinohara. Arata was even sluggish and Ayato lost badly. And still Kaneki REKT Shinohara. That tells heaps about the difference in level :P
And the flashback with Ayato, Touka and Arata was sweet :3

Suzuya vs the twins was nice. Thank god the censoring was only blur and not beam saber of divine light XD At least we could make out what was happening. Poor twins. U gotta feel bad for them. Suzuya is just too crazy XD

Loved the new additions added in here with relationships between characters. The twins and Amon seeing each other was a nice touch. And Hoji knowing Tatara too...Even having most of the ED about them. I really am interested in knowing more about Tatara so that was nice.

Dat ED art tho :O I really want to know what Rize and Shachi's relation is already! Suzuya looked crazy XD

Definition of a hypocrite:
a person who pretends to have virtues, moral or religious beliefs, principles, etc., that he or she does not actually possess, especially a person whose actions belie stated beliefs.

Now back to your statement, wat ?!
I wouldn't complain about animation as much as i would about censors to be honest.

What happen to sachi?

Its looks like same with the manga yet different ending.

So Amon is better than shinohara or he has better weapon than shinohara? he cut kaneki's kaguna so easily with his dual sword.

Wasn't it obvious that his Kagune was severely weakened because of the gas?



I mean, it was really obvious yeah, but you do realize that this is an anime only discussion thread?

Suzuya cracks me up with the way he talks while fighting. Shiro/Kuro twin got owned pretty easily. The censoring were completely unnecessary though.

While fighting Ayato, Shinohara realized Arata's movements are sluggish and my belief is that there's still a little bit of Arata's consciousness inside, not wanting to battle his own son. Ayato's hesitancy to face off against his dad's Kagune was the main reason for his defeat. Loved the way they depicted the emotions.

Centipede Kaneki vs. Shinohara was epic! That grin, the craziness and those insane movements were animated in a very becoming manner. Good job, Pierrot.

Dat One-eyed Owl though!


Best episode of Tokyo Ghoul √A thus far. The ending sequence was fabulous as usual!

I think they censored the knives because the ISIS situation?

What's with the stupid censoring in this episode -.-
Now it even starts with Tokyo Ghoul -.-

For not having read the manga, I'm quite confused with what has been happening with Kaneki. Did he eat Shinohara? Or just his armor?

That was magnificent, and definitely makes up for the lackluster animation of the last episode. The censoring was a bit disappointing, but I'm just going to assume that that's because of ISIS and won't be a trend for the rest of this series. Centipede Kaneki's movements were excellently done, and I loved how they used this new form of Kaneki to show just how much damage Yamori really did. At the same time though, it was a strong moment when Amon made Kaneki come to his senses. And who would have thought that Suzuya could wreck those one-eyed ghouls so easily?

More of this going forward please.

Didn't like it at all. Sure the action scenes were not bad, but at this point what the hell is the actual story???
All I see is some sensless fighting, and characters doing things that don't make sense at all. We have alot of characters and quite alot of action but there is nothing holding it together. 2/5

Kaneki was just eating Shinohara's Arata armour. I bet you'll be given an answer in the next episode... But if you recall in season 1 Jason told Kaneki about a certain rumour about cannibalising ghouls... (I don't want to spoil anything ^^' and I do suggest you read the manga ;) )

Looking forward to episode 6! Can't wait to see what Ishida-Sensei has in mind :3

F*CKING

THAT WAS SO BADASS, I WAS SCREAMING AND ALMOST CRYING!


Holy moly, what an episode. So much epicness, really. I love how they animated Kaneki's kakuja, the centipede looked awesome. The entire fight-scene was surprisingly good. The OST could've been better, more crazy and twisted, just like Kaneki's mind at that moment. Talking about Kaneki, Natsuki did great job with his voice!

Also, didn't expect Ayato to bring tears to my eyes. That was such a heart-breaking moment. I now have respect for him.

I think I like Suzuya more and more with every episode/chapter of manga. But I'm a little worried that his fight vs Kurona and Nashiro was so early. Does it mean that this season will end at the same point as manga did? :/

Very good episode, with very good animation, OST wasn't that good. And the ED arts, Suzuya looks sooo creepy xD

EDIT: Forgot to complain about the censorship. Really? That was such a stupid way to do this... I'm not a fan of censoring, gore is gore, but it could've been done better, like in 1st season, when they used black and shadows.

Mod Edit: Spoiler removed.

That episode was off the flipping charts. Kaneki went insane! Best episode so far of season 2. And damn that owl looked different to the owl in the first episode. Things are really starting to get crazy. Poor shinohara he got wrecked n probably eaten. The whole episode was a madness. Things are hotting up.

I literally hated Ayato until this episode. He's like "FK YOU TOUKA FK YOU DAD" But in reality, he's just the same as Touka ;_; AYATO YOU'RE WRECKING ME

great episode that could have been better if it was not for the censorship that completely ruined these scenes. this was even worse than the reverse color shit from the first season

thankfully i was right and the budget saved with the shitty animation last week was used here.

So in the end it comes down to Kaneki getting another power-up huh? 5th episodes in now and no explanation on why he joined Aogiri. I'm starting to think that we won't get any and just supposed to believe that he did it to protect Anteiku from himself or doesn't belong there anymore or something. That sound's fair but you know, actually getting to hear it from him would be nice.

I was also gonna comment on the fact that Jujo feel's a rather out of place as part of CCG. He moves like a ghoul, better than a lot even, vastly superior from from any other CCG member. But then again, I probably shouldn't be expecting too many answers by this point.

I'm surprised this is still fairly entertaining though, considering that the story's been almost nonexistent so far.

wow how are people liking this episode... I mean, that vampire girl literally watched for 30 seconds as her other vampire girl friend got butchered despite being right there and ready to fight. It's like the animators don't give TWO SHITS about the anime anymore. I mean, it would take extra effort to animate a 3-person fight right?? Rant over.

Amazing episode.

It was great to learn more about what happened to Kaneki when he was tortured. "Fingers on the table, centipedes in my ear."

Really helps show just how badly that messed him up.

This episode was terrible , and this season overall its pretty bad, like whats the story wtf is going on? its been nothing but random ass battles some with almost no context, bland uninteresting characters who we know nothing about yet in this episode we're suppose to feel for them , kaneki himself has been pretty terrible as a character and to this point we have no idea whats going through his head or what exactly he's trying to accomplish not to mention this group of ghouls he has joined.

How exactly is this shit one of the most popular series out?
