So I’ve had some time to think about Kazuto’s theory and the more I think about the more absurd it seems. This episode had no impact on that whatsoever. It was just too farfetched to begin with. Not that my theories are any better at this point.
I will say this once again; I am pretty sure that Death Gun is that stalker guy that Shino regularly talks to. There are just too many similarities for it to be a coincidence. Besides, geeky guys are usually capable of doing desperate things when “their girl” is at stake. That’s probably why Otaku’s have such a bad reputation in Japan.
Anyway, did they really need another half episode to discuss their plans? They already know what to do; survive and take out Death Gun before he takes them out. It appears, if I understood correctly, that there can only be two winners. Coincidence? No. We know that Kazuto and Shino will make it through this just by that piece of information.
How though? That is the question. Kazuto is matched up against Death Gun now, whom made his theory seem even less likely, because all ten remaining Laughing Coffin members, whom survived the terrors of Sword Art Online, could all be seen as accomplices if Kazuto’s theory is even remotely correct, seeing as Death Gun B, the one that supposedly sneaks into people’s homes and kills them with some kind of poison, can’t move at the speed of light and travel from one place to the other within minutes. It does not matter though. Kazuto doesn’t know Death Gun’s real name and he doesn’t have time to find out now that he’s getting his ass handed to him. We’ll just have to wait and see.Read More
What in the name of bloody hell was this!? What is wrong with these Japanese people and their endings? I just don’t understand. Usually a good start and often enough a bad ending, just like this one. What a huge let-down.
About half of the episode was dedicated to Ken’s madness. He was driven mad by the constant torture and was forced to see Rize once again. He actually seemed to have a conversation with her as they both when on a spiritual journey together. Really? You dedicate about eighty percent of the final episode to this crap? Are you kidding me!?
Ken’s hair turned white after being somewhat broken by Jason’s torture, after which he powered up and mopped the floor with Jason. It took twelve weeks to get to this point. Ken got captured, tortured and is now finally free and stronger than ever. He even defeated that guy. And what happened? We didn’t even get to see it. We didn’t even get to see Ken reunited with his friends. There is no news of a second season, which depends on the upcoming sales, so I can only call this a bad ending.Read More
Ugh… Don’t you think it’s a little bit morbid how some of the “heroes” are simply replaced by other characters? Two characters get killed and get replaced soon enough by two knew characters… I guess the grinder needs more meat.
So this so-called doctor invades Night Raids’ base by unleashing his formerly human puppets to do his dirty work. Not only was it disturbing to see how gay they all looked, but I think it’s also quite uninspiring that most of those characters looked exactly the same. Was it really so much trouble to give those characters unique features? They looked the same, wore the same clothes, talked the same and they even used the same fighting moves. No wonder they were all cut down so easily when one of the newbies showed up to strut his stuff to impress his teammates.
So this guy, Susanoo (reminds me of Naruto Shippuuden), has the same kind of ability as Seryuu’s Imperial Arms. Instead of having a pet of his own that grows a few feet tall and whatnot, he himself is the weapon. His body, too, has a core that you need to destroy if you want to defeat him. Otherwise he, too, will keep regenerating, just like Coro.
Am I disappointed in the end? A little. I think it was a damn shame to get rid of Bulat. Nevertheless, we have two new characters that arrived to help out Night Raid in the fight against the ice queen and her powerful henchmen. I just hope that Seryuu gets to die first. She needs to die. Oh, and I wouldn’t mind if Esdeath were to capture Tatsumi again. I kind of liked those scene, hehe.Read More
I am now one hundred percent sure that Shino’s stalker is the one behind that Death Gun nonsense. There are too many coincidences and everything points to him in my mind. Am I seriously the only one that sees this!?
So Kazuto thinks he has figured out Death Gun’s methods. He thinks that Death Gun is working with someone else. Death Gun A kills characters in-game and Death Gun B visits players’ houses when they are in-game and do not realize that someone has entered their home. This Death Gun B supposedly injects the players with a poison of some kind as soon as Death Gun A shoots that player in-game with that black handgun of his. This makes it seem as though Death Gun A has the ability to kill players in real-life via the game, even though Death Gun B is the one that does the actual killing.
It’s a very farfetched theory. This would mean that Death Gun B is currently standing beside Shino’s bed. She cannot logout because he might harm her anyway and she cannot get shot by Death Gun A because Death Gun B will then inject her with that poison. This just leaves them with two options; find a way to signal people on the outside so that they can rush to Shino’s house and apprehend Death Gun B or work together to defeat Death Gun A, hoping that Death Gun B really does leave without doing anything to Shino. This just goes to show that that Stalker really is one of the Death Gun’s. No way did he look over her shoulder. He just knows her address because she either told him or because he follow her home after one of their real-life meetings. I’m sure that’s it.Read More
Yeah, okay, bite me. We are eleven weeks in and Ken is still extremely weak. He can’t do anything, he can’t say anything and he doesn’t even try to escape his current predicament from what I’ve seen. I foresee a mediocre ending to be very honest.
Tokyo Ghoul had a powerful start. The horrific action captured the attention of many anime fans and a lot of them, including myself, are rather disappointed by how things played out. It is no secret that I’m a sucker for overpowered main characters, but to have the protagonist so laughingly weak that he can’t even defend himself or try to escape somehow when he’s being held in a room where some lunatic tortures him from time to time… Yeah, that is just shocking, especially if you consider that Ken, a rare one-eyed Ghoul, is supposed to be stronger than regular Ghouls, provided you believed what the other Ghoul, Itori, said a few episodes ago.
It really is sad that Touka and the rest of Anteiku had to gather in order to help save Ken, but to think that Shuu, an enemy whom we were led to believe was dead, showed up to help as well… What a disaster. Still, all will be forgiven if I get to see Yoshimura, the old man that owns that café, fight against a powerful opponent.
You know what I really disliked about this episode? I disliked the part where they finally gave us a glimpse of a white-haired Ken. They waited eleven weeks to show us that, and they only showed us at the very, very ending of the episode. We will actually have to wait until the next episode to see what has happened to Ken (probably got himself another personality due to that torture, just like that other Ghoul).Read More
