Toko Ghoul Root A... Where shall I start from?
Most people didn't get the Root A analogy: A is for Aogiri Tree, the antagonists and Tree have roots, so it wouldn't take you many neurones to guess the rest.
Now, as a fan who has read the manga, I must judge this animation.
Root A is an insensitive piece of trash. If you have read the manga and are planning to watch this anime, I would advice you to back off at this point cuz you're going to hurt yourself. Everything seems wrong since the first episode, as one of the gorest moment of the story, the 103
bones broken bit is removed. Then what else... ah yeah, the fights. The fights were very awkward to watch, a character could die in the middle of them you wouldn't give a damn. I am here talking about those of the first 7 episodes, I will mention the rest later on. Some events were omitted from the manga whereas most of the plot was modified, that's probably where people would start saying that it is an original piece of work.
I'm sorry guys but it's not because something is original that it must make sense. Tokyo Ghoul as a story itself has 2 main strengths: The goreness of the masterpiece and its twisted plot. As many of you probably already know, TG is one of the worst censored anime of all 2014-2015, thus, removing already the goreness of the story. What about the twisted plot? Well, 22 episodes in total I believe is sure not enough to expose such a great story, and this second season will just be like some fighting game anime, just set the arena and music then launch the fights. EVERYTHING IN THIS SEASON SEEMS OFF, I GUARANTEE.
Music-wise: The OST are great, way better than the first one but WTF THEY REMOVED OSHIETE TO PUT ON "The prostitute start fire". This is surely one of the biggest downsides of the season for people who liked the music of the first season cuz singing an opening song is surely one of the best ways to start watching an anime. The ending song is quite catchy and the art is marvellous, I would even advise you guys to search on youtube "amazarashi kisetsu wa tsugitsugi shindeiyuku" to see the PV and how well the video recreated the world of TG even better than the anime!
The second part of the anime (Attack on Anteiku), that started well, very close to the manga and it rised our spirits cuz we all wanted to see this goreness and sadness that is well communicated in the manga. This was another letdown by Pierrot, they battles were as empty as usual, the hype you build up on seeing Arima arriving fades away within 3 minutes.
Regarding the last episode? Oshiete was finally back but that ending... Pierrot must confess their sins, if I wanna see a guy walking for 7 mins with music in the background, then I'll go to the park and put some earphones on. Seriously, the middle of the episode was great, the rest was utter crap.
Final words? The only good episode imo was the one where the old man fights, you get a sadly excited of seeing him in action as we all know that he's the #1 ennemy of the CCG. Please Pierrot, don't make another season, TG already suffered enough
