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,
. And then there's the fact that Touka's hairstyle still hasn't changed -____-.

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

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.

Decent finale. That :RE cafe signboard gives me hope that there'll be a 3rd season someday.


no, NO 3rd SEASON WITH PIERROT COMPLETLY DESTROYING THE MANGA!
FIRST REMAKE OF THE WHOLE TOKYO GHOUL PART, THEN WE CAN DISCUSS ABOUT A CONTINUATION!

WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED?!
Did Kaneki die or not?
And so Hide was the person who Kaneki is carrying...

Damn. I'm too confused about that episode. I can't say if it was good or not.

NO YOU CANT USE 'UNRAVEL' Again in the last episode of the season to make up for the past failures of the season. While it worked for the 1st season, 2nd season just had to much holes. Im so disappointed from this show

I can definitely see a season 3 in the distant future (when the manga gets further) and I feel that this ending would flow better into :re than the manga's abrupt ending. This episode was probably the best this season. I can't even begin to describe how amazing it was. It felt so heartwarming. I personally think that Arima didn't kill Kaneki (unless snow seriously piled up). But the way how this season ended was much better than season 1.

That's it? Wow, that was such a waste of my time. I can't believe they're just going to end it there without any closure what so ever. Sigh, whatever. 2 out 10.

horrible edgy mindless action shounen in disguise is over

Content was bad,but the visuals and Ost were good.I knew they would play unravel again ;D
And there is an ova announced...whatever I really don't care about this anime anymore,but I'm glad that I picked up some manga volumes.
It's kinda sad how the adaptations overall turned out in comparison to what it could have been...

The plot-holes came up in season 1. Season 2 did it's best to cover it up.

It was 3 but now a 2? Ok tell me did the manga have a proper closure? Did you rate the manga a 2 as well because of the inconclusive ending?

I am drawing a huge blank right now. Nothing really happened in this episode (yes, I know a lot happened but "nothing" happened). Touka running for the past 3 episodes and finally reached her 'destination', lol. Never expected that was Hide.

I don't know. Not really satisfied with the ending (if you can call it that). So we are to assume that a huge battle was fought b/w Kaneki and Arima and Kaneki is "MIA". And as much as I love Papa A, I couldn't help but laugh seeing him. He finally spoke something. lel.

What was the point of Kaneki joining Aogiri? Absolutely nothing.

8.5/10 (7.5 voice acting and music, 1 story).
