THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Well, Hide sees Kaneki's Kakugan in full view now.

Good breather episode after all the intense events that happened throughout the season. One thing interesting about the episode is how it showed Kaneki holding the white cloth like in the promo image.

HOLY SHIT, they also played the original OP song from season 1 at the end. Unravel. YES. Anyways, actually enjoyed this season more than I had expected. Might get the OST in the future.

So incoming Jack OVA huh. Nice.

This was... very interesting. I'll need to wait for subs because until then I don't even know what to say aside from 1. YES, UNRAVEL!!! and 2. I half-expected that one guy they freed from Cochlea to show up this episode, oh well.

Honestly, Kaneki's death was too anti-climatic. Killing him off screen, seriously?
And :re ? Well, :re anime adaption will most likely happens now.

so...
even so you who still have not read the manga, READ THE MANGA!
why you ask?
- backstory to the twins (and few other stuff i wont spoil for now)
- backstory to yomo and uta
- more pineapple-kun (?)
- more arima vs kaneki-kun
- more "YOU SHALL NOT PASS V14"
- more explanation for aogiri's interaction with CCG
- more "pierrot"



sigh, now i am really kinda disappointed by it >3>

EDIT:
well, pretty much THIS:

Studio Perriot is a troll. They did the same thing in this episode similar to episode 12 of TG. They basically are forcing people to go read the manga and increase the manga sales.

I won't call them trolls per se.

People are forgetting that this is how the manga ended for part 1. Remember? Did you forget the pain of beign told that TG was ending on chapter 143 with only a weeks notice?

Oh yeah there's that too. Ishida sure made manga readers suffer with that ending.

They (Perriot) are taking lessons from Ishida too it seems. How to make TG fans suffer along with Kaneki Ken.

So Noro actually F***ed Hide up And that person in the poster was Hide :O?!

This ep's animation was amazing. Loved the flame animation as well as the snow when Arima was looking at the sky (esp when they showed him after Marude said "How should we deal with eyepatch?")

Ayato saving Touka was a nice touch :P

Amon just disappearing with no trace. I wonder what Akira thinks?

The scene Ken was walking through the CCG with Hide in his arms seeing all the dead bodies of both human and ghoul while Unravel playing was pretty damn beautiful. Dem feelz :*(

The TROLL was strong as hell at the end! Not only do they not show KenvsArima, they don't even show Ken lying on the ground "dead" and just show an Ixia stabbed into white snow (Symbolism type of censoring?) and to end it all, Cafe :re just opened LMAO XD

Well, that was completely different from the manga. First of all,

Found the episode to have a warm feel to it. Memories, Hide, Touka, Arima, CCG, feels. Still liked the episode very much. And they've teased :re but they prolly change that a bit too.

Overall, because I'm TG bias I'm giving this a 10 but honestly it's a 7 due to the MC rarely popping up in the beginning, lack animation and plot holes. When you compare this to the manga it can sink lower than a 7 on my scale but I won't do that. Manga was a masterpiece IMO, so fucking epic, sad, fulfilling and mysterious at the same time. They've left out some of the most epic scenes in manga/anime in general, guess that they didn't have enough budget or whatever. Well that settles that, for manga readers, don't cry we still have :re and the epicness that is going to come with Pineapple-kun and the rest.

I don't know about all of you, but as a mangareader, I liked the ending. The only thing that bothered me was Kaneki vs Arima was done offscreen. Otherwise this anime has done really well.(This ending was way better than Kiseijuu's)

This ep gets 4/5
The Anime: 9/10

It's my opinioon

Quite different from the manga, especially the massive troll ending here. Didn't even show whether or not Kaneki died. All we hear is the suitcase opening. Either way, this was better than S1, but yeah... Disappointing ending. Also, dat ":RE" sign at the end is SO TROLL.

I'm giving it an 8 but I would give it a 7.5 but that's not a number I can use.

... I was slow enough to not realize that the blood dripping was Hide until it became obvious. He being that person, though :/

I guess I really liked this episode, with all the flashbacks really showed all the important people/stuff that was lost in this battle for both sides.

Kaneki holding Hide like that, it felt a bit long, though it felt a bit long for me.

The ending... the temptation to read the manga...

Not what I was expecting from the anime!
Having read the manga, I found the ending beautiful, but at the same time not fulfilling. I much preferred the manga end. I wanted the fight so bad :/

;re just opened up? Hype?

That ending scene was powerful TwT RIP Hide

We needed this episode....Seeing all the effects of the carnage of the previous episodes....Akira, Suzuya, Touka, Kaneki....All of that despair really hits you hard

The Hide and Kaneki scene was perfection imo....I can't stress how great those moments were.....Dat Arima and Kankei showdown at the end....I don't even know what to say lol

Imma give this an 8/10 instead of 7 based off of moments like the ones in this episode

It was. But we actually get to see fighting... Not just a big fat "click" of the suitcase.

Now that I think about it, when the original manga ended, I was like what just happened and after a while I got depressed.
But the presentation of the anime really got me sad from mid-way of the episode.Very well directed.
I still think the brutal death of Kaneki should have been shown.
