Yeah, I kind of knew that it would turn out this way. It didn’t go exactly as I had imagined, which is why I’m still as excited as ever, but I was spot-on in general. It’s just a damn shame that the pace has dropped a little bit.
So that private investigator finally saw what happened when one becomes affiliated with those parasites. His entire family was slaughtered like lambs and now they are after him to finish the job. He should’ve listened to Shinichi. That way he could’ve prevented this from happening by fleeing the city or something. But no… He knew best…
What surprised me a little is that that female parasite has become a target as well. Her obsession for Shinichi’s change and humanity in general has kind of set off the alarm amongst her kind, and so they are now targeting her because they think she’s become a threat. Now that is a pretty interesting twist that I did not see coming!
Of course, the spotlight goes to Shinichi and Migi once again. They are up against a freak of nature. Parasites in general are pretty freaky, but it gets worse when those two are up against five parasites that decided to take over the same body. Arms, legs and the head… All completely parasitic. All Shinichi could do was run and hide to give Migi some time to come up with a plan.
Still, Migi can have all the time in the world to plan all he wants, but even he is going to have a hard time when facing five parasites at once, especially when that old guy took over and united all of them. He morphed those legs so that he could actually catch Shinichi. Shinichi can’t even run away from that guy anymore, no matter how fast he’s become. It should be pretty interesting to see how they will deal with that monster.Read More
I am extremely happy that Tokyo Ghoul started up again. I went one season without Tokyo Ghoul and I have been missing it. I hope that next season I get a second Attack on Titan season and after that another Tokyo Ghoul season. That would give me a perfect 2015.
Anyway, I am starting to believe that Ken might not at all be interested in that strange organization. He, to me, looks like someone that’s after something. I don’t know if he’s looking for someone or if he’s trying to obtain certain information, but he is definitely looking for something. He doesn’t attack like his fellow members do. He attacks the police and other humans in a way that doesn’t fatally harm them. He could’ve easily killed all those cops, instead he chose to prevent them from reaching their destination by flipping cars and whatnot. Sadly, the same cannot be sad for his friends.
I wonder what the point of it all was. Sure, they were there to rescue a fellow ghoul, one of Jason’s henchmen, but is that all there is to it? Ken had to defend himself against two one-eyed ghouls during this mission. I’m guessing that someone’s after Ken and sends in strong ghouls to test how strong Ken currently is.
I am guessing that Ken really is going to start his own group, as I had hoped from the start. His old ‘friends’ took out a few of those goons and are making his way to him. I don’t know if he is aware of that or if he is going to fight them, but I am pretty sure he is going home with them at one point. Ken is not meant to be part of an organization like the one he’s in now.Read More
The story took a really weird turn here. What a way to start the second season. I am going to be stuck on this stuff all week until I watch an episode that makes sense again. Why am I so excited about this season? Is it because Ken is finally a badass? Is that it? Hmm…
So Ken really did join that Ghoul organization. I thought he was just saying that to distance himself from Touka to keep her out of harm’s way. But no, he really joined the organization that captured and tortured him and that nearly killed most (if not all) of his friends. Yet he still decided to join that organization. I cannot understand it. Is he after something? Is he trying to infiltrate the organization in order to get closer to its leader? Is that it? Ken does not strike me as the type of person that forgets and forgives easily when the safety of his friends are stake.
He may be a badass now, but he is still the same old Ken. He could’ve killed that man if he wanted to, yet he decided to spare his life by walking away. That scene just confused me even more. He does not want to kill aimlessly. It just makes it harder for me to find out why he’s doing this. We all know that he has a goal in mind…
I’m just glad that Touka’s safe. Ken, before joining that organization, stopped Touka’s brother from killing her. Now she’s back in school and trying to move on. Doesn’t that seem strange? That Ken is now the strong one whilst Touka’s doing her best to try and seem human? I just cannot get enough of this story… Things just keeps reversing.Read More
You know, I am really getting tired of that Satomi. God she’s so incredibly selfish. Shinichi has the world on his shoulders and she is worried about losing the old Shinichi to an obviously new and improved Shinichi. Get over it, babe!
So Shinichi’s old parasitic teacher sent a detective after him to try and learn more about Shinichi’s change. This backfired completely. That detective, thanks to Shinichi tracking him down with his one and only ally (not counting Migi), now knows that his employer is parasite that, unlike Shinichi and his friend, eats humans. This will probably result in his and his family’s death, because that woman now probably knows that he knows, and those parasites are kind of fond of their privacy. It is only a matter of time before hell breaks loose again.
So she realized that Shinichi has changed. What I find weird is that she immediately realized that part of Migi is now coursing through Shinichi’s veins. Is it because she can sense those parasitic cells that are part of Shinichi? Did she just guess correctly? I think it’s strange. I remember Migi saying that those cells are so tiny that he cannot sense or control them anymore.
I am still kind of waiting for Shinichi to cut loose. Let the guy go crazy. He is always so worried about involving innocent people in his fights. Just let us see him go wild for once. It is only a matter of time before he’s up against a small army of parasites if he is seriously planning on fighting the group of parasites that successfully infiltrated the dreadful world of politics.Read More
You can already tell that this is going to be an awesome season. Tokyo Ghoul is back, Aldnoah Zero (if I am not mistaken) is also back, we have Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso and Parasyte, and a few more new shows that look extremely promising. This is going to be a great season.
So Tokyo Ghoul has started again, which was only a matter of time. I always had a tough time deciding whether I liked the artwork more or the story itself. It is so hard to make up my mind because the artwork look so incredibly good.
Then again, the story is where the magic lies, isn’t it? It is not very predictable and you know that every episode is going to raise your blood pressure a little. That’s just proof that the story behind Tokyo Ghoul is the real thing.
Yes, yes, yes, yes and hell yes! I cannot say it enough; go watch this show. Watch the first season if you haven’t already and start watching this season as well. It is worth wasting twenty minutes a week on, trust me.
