Ayato and his abs: I have to admit that Ayato has grown to be overly sexy. I don’t know who is more fit at the moment, him or Sasaki? I guess we will find out pretty soon though.
Urie never learns: This guy is either going to die real soon or he will get everyone in serious trouble. He is blinded by grandeur and wants recognition so badly that he almost got eaten by Big Madam. He overestimated his powers once again and he even wants to show off more that Suzuya. Sneaky little bastard.
Themes & Trivia
Character Guide: Since everything might be rather confusing for the fans that don’t follow the manga, here is a guide that will help you remember the characters and follow the events of Tokyo Ghoul:re a little bit better.
Missed plot details: First of all, when Takizawa has cornered two of the CCG members and one of them turns out to be his former student, he says that: ‘Fear is overcome when you become one of them’. There was an important flashback missed here where we see Takizawa being overwhelmed with fear during the Anteiku raid and if it was included, that scene would have made more sense.
Urie’s obsession with surpassing Takeomi is not explained properly as well. When we see Takeomi fighting the huge clown, he struggles him to death and the reason for that is because he has superhuman strength which adds up to his skills as an Investigator and that’s why Urie wants to surpass him so badly.
Uta Vs Hirako: There is obviously a lot of backstory missing here but nothing is explained to us. When Uta seemed to be unmasked, he had the same face as Arima just to tease Hirako. It is his way of toying with people’s emotions, hence the mask business and the whole clown thing.
‘Damn you and your sexy body’. When he said that to Nutcracker, it cracked me up so much. What kind of comment is that, seriously? In this episode, we were basically showcased a bunch of freaks that have evolved ghoul powers: Matsumae and his detached kagune that looks like thorns and Nutcracker and her traps of compound kagune. The following episodes will definitely be chaos.
I am quite disappointed with the quality of the animation. To be honest, I had my hopes high and really thought that this season would be better even though the plot seems to be a bit messy again but oh well… it is probably an evil master plan of Ishida to make everyone hate the anime and love the manga even more.
You need to pay attention during lectures
Takizawa has the best quotes ever, plus he is so creepy he makes me shiver. I honestly don’t know what to expect from the next episodes. Obviously, we will have intense fighting scenes but I really hope that the animation will get a bit better and that the action will keep up with our expectations.
