This episode sure moved along a lot slower than I had imagined. This season, if I am not mistaken, only has twelve episodes. Yet Ken’s journey isn’t even well underway yet. For them to spend this much time on that many pointless scenes… I don’t know what to think of that.
One of the most interesting scenes in this episode was when Akira tried to kiss that idiot partner of hers. He has had such a terrible life and one good thing pops up and he denies himself that. I mean, you are about to go to war against a lot of powerful ghouls and you get the one chance to laid with the woman you’re probably going to end up with, so for him to deny himself that… Idiotic.
So the old man whipped out of Kagune and assumed the role of the One-eyed Owl and already took down at least one or two dozen soldiers before those two powerhouses showed up. I don’t think they are strong enough to take him on, but should more of their friends appear… Who knows? I just hope Ken shows up in time before too many of his friends end up dead.Read More
Another great episode. So what if there wasn’t a lot of action? It continued something of much more value. You can’t love a show where there’s fighting during every single episode. You need to mix things up a little bit.
This episode was perfect for that. We basically got a little history lesson about the old man and how he used to live his life. He was all alone and only cared for his own survival. He killed and killed until he came across a young woman whom ended up stealing his heart. They lived together and did a lot of things together, including making a child together, which led to them being targeted for doing this impossible. A child from both a Ghoul and a human was supposedly impossible, yet they did it and the woman got killed for it and the child now missing.
It was a very interesting story and the old man lived a very interesting live. It’s too bad that they didn’t actually show us how he became a Ghoul, but that’s alright. It was quite interesting to see how he lived and why he changed to become the man he is today. It’s no wonder that other Ghouls choose to follow him out of their own free wills.
Nevertheless, he may have lived the last part of his life as peacefully as he possibly could considering the circumstances, but he and his friends are still Ghouls, which has caught the attention of the local authorities. The next episode should prove to be quite interesting as both the old man and his friends will have to defend themselves against many, many Ghoul-killing soldiers.Read More
There are so many things wrong with this episode. I also have no idea whether there was any progress or not. There may have been some, but for the life of me I wouldn’t know what it was. And my eyes never left the screen.
Remember how Ken went completely berserk during his last fight? He lost another part of him that made him human and gave in to the ghoul within. It could be because he wasn’t paying attention, it could be because he wasn’t in control of his rage or it really could be because he’s been cannibalizing his fellow ghoul. Either way, he killed and ate an officer and was nearly killed himself by that die-hard detective. He almost lost control even when he was alone in that building. So now I wonder what made him return to that café.
It may have been information or may have been a request for help. Either way, I was severely distracted by that insane, Ken-obsessed ghoul. Did you see that guy? He carries around a handkerchief with some of Ken’s blood on it so he can sniff it and get high whenever he wants to. You really don’t want a guy like that around you.
Putting that psycho aside, I don’t think Ken is going back anytime soon. He made it very clear that he doesn’t want to involve Touka or any of the Anteiku employee’s and/or residents. He is a man on a mission. It won’t be long now before his true objective is revealed. Things don’t make a whole lot of sense right now.Read More
Things are really looking good. I don’t ask for much. I work hard to get the things that I want, yet I am asking that Tokyo Ghoul gets another season after this. It just never bores. Every week I make sure that I have a few delicious goodies standing by when I’m about the fire up the episode.
So… Ken is getting stronger, huh? He is also starting to lose control. It would seem that him cannibalizing his fellow ghoul is forcing him to become something else. Yes, he is becoming more and more dangerous, but he is losing himself. He will no longer be able to return to his old self if he continues to live his life this way. It’s good that he keeps on getting stronger, but it’s kind of pointless when he cannot control that power. It won’t be long before he attacks and kills the wrong person and be forced to live with that for the rest of his life.
And yeah… I got a peek into the crazy boy’s past. So he was raised by ghouls as some kind of play thing for their insane arena. Okay, it explains why he’s so messed up. Still, I don’t like him. Guys like that are better off dead. Then again, they make useful weapons. He is filled with hatred for ghouls. Just give him a weapon and point him in the direction of ghouls. Why endanger good men?
What to expect from Tokyo Ghoul at this point? Well, I am pretty sure that Ken is going to overcome this hurdle. He will defeat the ghoul within. That detective probably won’t end up with his former partner’s daughter. She’s too focused on work I think. And that brat? Yeah… He’ll probably continue to strive until he gets killed by a ghoul as well.Read More
Badass episode! I just wish the subtitles in these episodes weren’t hardcoded. It gives me a lot more work when trying to post my review every week. Nevertheless, it’s a good show so I that little bit of extra work is somehow worth it all.
I got to say that I really enjoyed this episode. Ghouls were fighting people, people were fighting ghouls. It was a huge battle for survival and all for what; to rescue that hairy geezer that eventually ended up beating Ken? That is a really messed up twist. But at least Ken now has a goal that he can try to reach. He is well on his way by the looks of it.
I was actually surprised to see the One-eyed Owl appear like that. He came to save his “friends”. I wonder if it was the real One-eyed Owl or that old man from the café. My money is on the latter. I don’t think the real one would show up to save his fellow ghouls. He strikes me as the type of ghoul that believes in “survival of the fittest”.
Anyway, the real issue here is that Ken seemed to have experienced a huge power boost. He gained more of those tentacles, which looked like centipedes, and hauled quite a lot of ass. He even defeated one of those top-ranked detectives and may or may not have eaten him alive. I am kind of hoping he didn’t end up eating the man himself but just his armor (or Kagune as they call it). I don’t want to see Ken as the kind of character that goes around murdering people, not even if he himself is attacked. He can only kill annoying and insane characters, hehe.Read More
