Screenshots from the newest Tokyo Ghoul OVA, Tokyo Ghoul: Jack featuring a young Arima before he became overpowered (moreso than now…). Overall, I really enjoyed the episode and you can read more about my thoughts on it in my Tokyo Ghoul Jack Review post.
Another anime comes to a close this week. Thankfully, the Tokyo Ghoul franchise has been gaining popularity since the anime aired so there are even more new adaptations to come. Can’t say I enjoyed it as much as the manga, but Root A certainly did have it’s moments, especially when it came to the music and animation. Check out my full review on Tokyo Ghoul Root A.
The Shinigami of ghouls has entered the battlefield. All hope is lost when facing a god among humans, Arima Kishou. Kaneki also finally makes his way home, and doesn’t enter the dreaded V14.
The battle against Owl appears to be successful. Kaneki and Touka both feel hopeless once the news breaks that Yoshimura has fallen. The mood quickly swings though when the real king, the one-eyed Owl of Aogiri makes an appearance.
The raid has begun, and Kaneki has to make his decision. Does he risk his life trying to save Anteiku, even though there’s practically zero chance of it happening, or does he run away like Yoshimura wants. The final arc of Tokyo Ghoul begins with the normal everyday life the ghouls took for granted being robbed from them.
A set up episode, as we prepare to enter the final arc of Tokyo Ghoul. I have to say, these ending cards just keep getting better and better! Even if the animation is spotty at times, these end cards have been gorgeous with crazy amounts of detail and meaning behind them.
The ending credits just get better and better! Last week we saw some development for the guys at the CCG, while this week we focus on the ghoul side of things. With Kaneki’s desire to return to Anteiku, all you Ken x Touka shippers can get your hopes up!
A slower episode, but it’s nice to actually get some development, rather than a ton of nonsensical action. Drunk Akira is the best Akira, clearly. Juuzou’s story is also finally revealed, although heavily censored, and much less brutal than in the manga.
While there weren’t too many light beams this episode, we did get a lot of blurring which proved to be almost as distracting. Either way, it was nice to see Kaneki’s insanity animated. That had to be one of my favorite moments in the manga, and there’s just something special about seeing it all come to life in anime form!
