How many chapters were did they actually adapt there ? 50? I wonder how Anime onlys feel right now? does it evev make sense for them?
I don't know if it's just me being a dumbass, but last season and this season kept making me confused on who is who until its explicitly stated because people keep changing appearances and sometimes added with the fact that it's been forever since i've seen them at all.

I didn't immediately recognize Kaneki because we just spent an entire season with dual colored hair, minus the ending. Now it's fully back to black and with glasses? Threw me off until his name was actually spoken. Same goes for that book author, i thought she was like 10+ years older with way longer hair?

I think i'm just getting things wrong or misremembering? I don't know.

Once I saw they skipped a whole arc I just stopped watching. Ain't gonna waste my time anymore with Studio Pierrot's bs. I really feel bad for the anime-only fans of the series. Dropped.

What a half assed episode, butchered really good scenes from manga. At least the opening is good

I could forgive pierrot for the lacklustre root a but this... why?

I confess I've only been into anime for a few years and manga even less but I genuinely adore the Tokyo Ghoul manga. I loved it so much that I am actually willing to spend what little money I have on paper volumes at full price because I find the story and characters engaging and the art beautiful. I thought it was impossible to ruin it and I rated TG s1 and :re s1 10/10 even though they don't deserve close to that because I just really enjoy TG. But when you cut an entire arc down to two minutes of cutscenes it cannot be redeemed. All the anime onlys are confused and all the manga readers are disappointed. It's not like the arc that they skipped was unimportant too - there's a number of things that should've happened which didn't. As I said, I haven't been watching anime all that long but this is one of the worst shows I've seen, and it had such good source material too. It didn't look all that good and even what they did keep they fiddled with unnecessarily, and the only reason it isn't a 1 is cos I did smile at the few remaining unbutchered moments. Please god let someone else have a go at a proper adaptation in the near because this is truly outrageous.

Hmm so the next arc is the Rushima landing operation arc. Eto's reveal of her true face was quite brazen. The insight into how she started out as a writer was quite interesting though. Eto's wish though was a powerful one though and one that was certainly heretical in society. Her last book though certainly revealed an interesting conspiracy though. Eto not being fazed by Furuta's actions was impressive. Interesting episode that produced some game changing revelations with regards to Eto and Sasaki's lives while featuring some good look into the past. A good return to the series.

There are again so many new people and I really don't know what the story is about anymore. Who is against who? lol
Maybe I just should read the manga.

Wow, this episode was a fucking mess. Let's just hope they adapt the trigger chapter, assuming it wasn't already skipped.

Such a masterpiece! As expected of Studio Pierrot, once again presenting an amazing action-packed shounen series. I think everyone should give this 1 0/10.

Lot of Eto screentime, hopefully there continues to be more. Can't go wrong with best girl screentime. XD
I still couldn't accept that they ruined the very short moment of build-up between Eto and Ken.
I just realized that all of my favorite characters, beside being stunningly beautiful, are also exceptionally skilled at killing. {×.×}

More focus on Eto and her backstory was interesting, but this episode was a completely baffling way to start the series, seemingly vastly disconnected from where the previous season left off.

I am legit confused, the pacing of the first 3 minutes was insanly quick and by the sounds of the people here, they just rushed a whole arc. This seems worse than first season of :Re... I am definitely reading the manga when this stopped airing.

The best thing I could say about this episode, that we see Hinami & Eto.
These girls are BEYOND precious!

Did they just show us a whole fucking arc in less than 3 minutes? My mouth was hanging for like 4 minutes straight trying to take in the fact that Perriot just did that

I sensed that this was going to be bad but never this bad, NEVER

WOW! The pacing of this episode was so frigging fast that I was sitting on my seat and laughing my ass off as I watched more and more. It's genuine comedy at this point. They literally fast forwarded around 10-12 chapters worth of content in a single episode. And the animation and art is shoddy as hell. I really am wondering what the anime only viewer's reactions are. Looks like they will be done with the whole rushima/cochlea arc by the next episode or by episode 3 I think. This shit has gotta be the fastest episode I have watched in my anime viewing history LOL.

WOW. They actually made it worse than I thought. So we were just introduced to Shiono and he was offscreened after 10 minutes. This is the biggest trainwreck I've seen in an adaptation. I'm so sad right now

Yes, start from the first Tokyo Ghoul, then you can at least understand what the hell is going on
Actually season 1 and re season 1 were quite good, but both of the season 2 are just terrible. So yeah, read the manga definetely.

This is already the worst part of the manga, add that the mad an awful adaptation and SKIPPED A THIRD OF WHAT THEY WERE GOING TO ANIMATE.
Damn, I feel really sorry for the anime-onlys.
Also they spoiled the final arc in the first minutes in a flashforward.
Congratulations Pierrot, great job as always!

I didn't immediately recognize Kaneki because we just spent an entire season with dual colored hair, minus the ending. Now it's fully back to black and with glasses? Threw me off until his name was actually spoken. Same goes for that book author, i thought she was like 10+ years older with way longer hair?

I think i'm just getting things wrong or misremembering? I don't know.


Actually recognizing characters was a big problem in the :re manga as well. Not much with Kaneki, since they stated his name very early on the first chapter he changed back so that everybody would know it's him, but the designs of side characters were so incredibly generic I had to check wiki pages to even find out which two characters were on the page together. I imagine the anime is gonna be even worse in this aspect since it's so fast paced you don't even have time to try remembering character faces properly, much less what they're names are or what is their role in the story. Honestly, just wait till they start presenting some of the random, but somewhat important, CCG officers who basically all look the same without any unique quirks whatsoever (unless they cut them out of course, since this is a TG adaptation we are talking about)

Oh yeah, and Eto was basically only supposed to have cut her hair short, yet they basically changed the way she looks completely. That's what they get for changing the artstyle so drastically compared to the original TG.

All and all, you are completely in the right for being confused.

Did they skip a whole arc and just they showed us just a few minutes? LMAO. At least the animation is good. The pacing is fast, very fast, one of the most fastest episodes that I've ever seen in my life lol.


Omg I was really hoping that’s not what they did and it was just a sneak peak but omg. Are they dumb? How will we ever understand why Tooru is so damn edgy then? They better cut out all his scenes from now till the end then.

This is just too much. Plus Sachi’s significance is total moot now. He never even fought with Kaneki in the anime...

And why the hell did the subs turn Sachi into Orca?

Man Kaneki's appearance keeps changing so much every season that it takes me a few minutes to figure out it's him every time. It's also hard to keep track of what's happening since I guess there was another time skip and we literally didn't see any of those people from the main cast of the previous season.
At least Eto's backstory was comprehensible even though they apparently rushed through some big important battle. Ah well.

The only other thing that made some sense and didn't come completely out of nowhere was the situation with Hinami. I know she is the little ghoul girl from season 1 and I remember she got captured last season so at least something is connecting this huge clusterfuck of a series together since Kaneki doesn't seem capable of it with his constant personality shifts between seasons. I do like that he still cares about her enough to bust her out of this prison even though I have no idea what's going on in the wider context of things.

Based on my previous experience with this series, I expect absolutely nothing to be explained but it might at least be some mindless entertainment since I definitely wasn't bored watching this.

For anyone who started new and just havent read the manga:

Skip this pile of shit, it's a waste of your time. Read the manga instead, OR read basically anything else, even that would be better than this.

Also I would be really interested of the budget of one episode compared to other animes made by different studio. I'm pretty sure that this anime has the lowest budget of the whole season.

This anime has always desperately tried to convey some deep message about humanity that has significant meaning; and as far back as season 1, I have been interested in trying to understand the point theyre trying to make; BUT the problem is the whole series has always been a huge clusterfuck of a mess.

Stuff just happens, and anyone who didnt read the manga has no effing clue whats even going on. The cinematic cues are terrible and make shit even more confusing; the story doesnt even continuously flow season to season; and in episodes like this, even each scene is completely disconnected from the next. New characters are thrown at you with no introduction and youre expected to know who they are and why they matter; on top of that, youre expected to remember characters who have had no screen time in the last season and a half; AND THEN they change the appearance of characters on a whim (I literally had no idea glasses dude was Kaneki until the last 5min). They dont let you inside what Kaneki is thinking either. Like what is his CURRENT state of mind?? Does he now remember who he is; is he still loyal the investigators; is back to being on the ghoul's side?

Probably the best OP as of yet, they tried hard to bring back s1 feels!

Had a decent idea of what was going on having read the manga but it felt like they skimmed through 30+ chapters.

i don’t know how i feel about this, i can’t even remember what arc was skipped LMAO, but watching this episode i could understand how confuckled anime only viewers would be

even though i’m pretty sure they will, i hope they don’t try to cram the rest of :re into this season. there’s almost 200 chapters and at the point the anime is at around chapter 60-70 i think. so i’m really concerned

kinda mixed on the opening, the visuals were great but i’m not sure how i feel about the song - it just didn’t match. i definitely prefer the previous op to this one, but hopefully it’ll grow on me
