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...

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.


yeah, manga watchers hating on the ending forgot this news lol

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


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

Yes but we did not know there was going to be a sequel till like a month later. Ishida was silent about it.

Yeah but the manga is definitely not a horrible mindless shounen if that's what you were implying.

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).

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 -____-.




Regardless even though the end was okay and I loved the last few minutes especially the bit with Kaneki and Hide I hated this second season, it screwed everything up and there was no point. The manga is incredible though and does a lot more so if you want to read it please do because its much better.

Definitely man. That's why Kiseijuu is still ranked #200 in the manga rankings as compared to #26 of TG.

And ofc, the fact that Kiseijuu is so 'popular' given that the anime sales were a complete flop.

Such a great Season after S1's massive disappointment.

Thoroughly pleased with it and I know that there will be a third season.

At least there's that ova first.

Well, considering that RE is a sequel to the manga that it's still on-going im not sure if it's going to have a closure ending or not. Plus, I was reading the TG manga while TG RE was on going

Then too bad you don't understand the shock some mangareaders had to endure when it ended abruptly within a week. There was no sign of a sequel for a month but you didn't see everyone bashing it for being inconclusive.

i liked they episode it was beautiful but...
it was so sudden and they cut out so much... i do feel like this is the kind of ending kaneki had coming like they said at the beginning.

If, for argument's sake, you were to write a story with me in the lead role, it would certainly be a tragedy.

The end of kaneki the beginning of Haise.

I'm not a manga reader for TA so I'm utterly confused as to what most people are even talking about. Why is it a troll that they showed Touka and a new cafe at the ending? What? I may sound really dumb but I've never picked up the TA manga so what the hell is happening, so confused with this. Still loved it though, just would like some filling in the holes.

Lol.The only characters in Parasyte were Izumi,Migi and Reiko. I don't see why Parasyte gets so much of love.It's good but c'mon guys it's nowhere near a masterpiece.

We're comparing it to Tokyo Ghoul... It's not a masterpiece, but it's better than S1 and S2 of Ghoul, that's for sure.

Parasyte was a 10/10 for the first half but seriously, towards the end TGA did way better than Parasyte. That's my opinion, I respect yours as well. I don't want to start a fire.

Mushishi's only character is Ginko.

You have to realize, no one mentioned Hide being dead. Why else would Kaneki carry his corpse in the midst of the CCG? Maybe to get medical attention, idk. And Kaneki didn't die, there was no indication. -cliffhangers all over the damn place-

Feels was nice. but c'mon man this had to be the easiest episode they made. so many still screens and loops I cant even remember how many time I had to skip.

still a decent adaptation for an anime original route. at least they didn't Akame Ga Kill us. hahaha that would have been nice though.

people bitching about "why did they have to do an original route" c'mon let be honest there's no way they could have adapted the "Kaneki the ghoul" route properly in just 12 episodes.

Haven't watched Musishi. In Parasyte, the side characters were awful. It had a pretty big cast. All the characters in the show were dumb other than Izumi,Reiko,Migi and some other parasyte. The human intellectual mind was very weak compared to the parasyte's shown.

Sooo... All the changes in this season just for this ? Am I the only one who expected to learn a lot more about aogiri in this season, since it would take some times in the manga ?

It's disappointing, really, we end up more or less at the same point than in the manga. It just answers one question about Hide, i thought we could learn something about him like he was a little mysterious, but nope, he dies.Weeeell ok. I guess we could say that he must have died in the manga too then. ( Or it could really be not the case and he could really be special in the manga é_é )

So, Touka coming changed nothing. And Amon's disappearance makes no sense since he didn't encounter you know who. Worst, he really disappeared and is not thought as dead...

What was the point in going to aogiri ? The point with all the time seeing Eto laughing ? I was hoping to see her do something with kaneki this time :<

Is this just for the sake of seeing Hide's death or what ?

after rewatching it...
yup, no arima vs kaneki, no V14, no pierrot, no twins, no doc kanou, no sachi and why he is with aogiri, no explanation why aogiri did interfer with the CCG raid, no explanation why only now little owl did what she did

seriously, if they are going for a 3rd season without reanimaing it correctly, gotta rage hard .__.

Adaptation was pure trash, I don't even care anymore. I don't think Pierrot realised what kind of popularity TG would gain and hit a brick wall because no budget.

Unravel!

Great finale all around really, though I never expected Hide to die, even if it did make sense that he wouldn't have escaped Noro without some damage. I'm a bit iritated that they didn't show Kaneki vs Arima, but the blow is softened somewhat by all the other battles this season.

Still a few things unexplained though, so I'm really hoping for a season 3 here, especially with such an open ending again. 9/10

this season is about talking and drinking coffee (literally) and how the hell do you expect non manga reader to cry for Hide scene, it was just stupid, hide scene was like 70 percent of the last episode, which i give no shit about hide

Beyond disappointed. We didn't spend nearly enough time this season with Kaneki and Hide to make this deserve four minutes of walking, Yomo appearing out of the blue, Anteiku on fire out of the blue, and Arima not getting the hype he needed throughout the season to make this work. The directing is good, I can tell what each shot is meant to frame, but it doesn't matter when there's just no structural support for the actual content. Then we get teasered :re for all the manga fans, which makes me reflect on how many plot holes we glossed over that weren't explained because that was in the manga and the manga had the better story.

tl;dr manga master race

EDIT: Also, ugly CG Ixa last episode and textureless Narukami for the lose.

was anoying that hide never amount to anything when he had hints of being someone special someone who would have a big reveal but nothing.
kan committing un seen suicide arima would own him in seconds seems kinda fail it fits the show ish but still annoying to not see him ever go all out also anyone knw why in the cafe his hair turned brown before u see him leave with white wats tht about?.
what did touka see at the end which made her stop for a moment? kan?

Guys calm down, can't you see is an open invitation to read the manga? First, Kaneki was never really present, never got words from him or what he was really thinking, many other plot holes left there for you find it on the manga. Studio Pierrot did a good job trying to mend the first season, and actually making a decent "alternate" story, everything set for a possible third season ( Amon and Pineapple guy missing, Hide may be alive). Too bad there is no Kaneki vs Arima but with censorship would've be as epic as the manga so I'm fine with just the suit case opening.

I liked the direction of the direction of the episode, makes you realise how much was lost on both sides. That being said am gonna give the season as a whole a 7. Seeing as they have further plans for the franchise I hope they revisit the original route and adapt the manga properly in the form of movies or something. Unless they're fully committed to this original route and continue on to :re though am not sure how that's gonna work. Either way i think there will be a sequel of some kind

Continuing to :re would be madness. They'd need to fill in all the huge gaps before they could move on to that otherwise none of it would make any sense.

That was a quite sad ending.
I was afraid that Touka would die, wich she didn't. What i did not expect is that Kaneki would die..
Some say that he didn't and I'm quite confused of if he actually is alive or not.

This season felt quite rushed and I think that they could have used more episodes. I know that the producers can't go over budget, but still..

I still have my hopes up for a next sequel and I really hope that Kaneki did survive.
