I really wanted to keep this post short. I am rather short on time and this episode really disappointed me (I’ll get to that later). Nevertheless, it was a great episode and a lot of good things happened. I would feel ashamed if I didn’t write up a decent post (or something that comes close to that).
We know that Hinami lost both her parents to those Doves (that’s what Ghouls call those Ghoul-hunting agents) and that their Kagune’s (personal Ghoul weapon. Unique to each Ghoul I believe) were turned into weapons in order to hunt down and kill Ghouls. Basically, their own weapons, which are part of their bodies, are being turned into external weapons for Doves since guns and knives aren’t as effective as one might hope. To think that those guys would actually lure Hinami to come out by using her mother’s purse as some kind of smell-beacon. And it actually worked…
Hinami should praise herself lucky that Touka and Ken both went after her and helped her fight off those two Doves. Ken, unfortunately, did not become that legendary badass that we’ve heard so much about. Nor did his hair turn white. He just whooped a little bit of ass and let his enemy escape before he lost himself to his hunger.
I’m also a bit surprised by Touka. She really seems weak now, even though she took on Shuu a couple of episodes ago. Maybe she needed to feed a bit before she started her fight? I don’t know. All I know is that it took Hinami, which inherited both her parents’ Kagune, to take down that insane Dove, Kureo. Touka may have permanently finished him off, but Hinami’s the one that took him down. I wouldn’t mind seeing her matched up against Ken (for fun, of course).Read More
I wanted to try and describe this episode as the quiet before the storm, but characters died and Tatsuya was spied on. I can hardly call that quiet. I guess the “war” has begun. Too bad for those guys that they don’t stand a chance against the almighty Tatsuya.
I am short on time so I will be keeping this post short and simple. They tried to spy on Tatsuya. I, of course, say tried because Tatsuya noticed it immediately and put a stop to it. This just means that people are interested in what he’s working on. The fact that they tried to hack him proves how serious they are about it.
Even his friends are being followed and engaged one of them in combat. He may have escaped because he pulled a weak trick after he had been defeated, but it didn’t matter anyway, seeing as his own people killed him in the end. It’s only a matter of time before they try a full frontal attack when they realize that underhanded methods don’t work on Tatsuya and his friends. We’ll see…Read More
I refuse to write a lengthy post when the father-son reunion that I have been waited for was completely ruined when they introduced the element of comedy to an otherwise serious episode. It was completely out of place and not funny at all.
The only “funny” scene that is worth mentioning was when Naruto’s father made the connection that Sakura, whom he thinks is Naruto’s girlfriend, looks a lot like Naruto’s mother, the red-headed demon that tied him down. I gave it a little smile, but that is all it got. The rest was just absolutely dreadful and hard to watch.
So the fight has finally begun. The old Hokage’s have shown up and are already hauling so much ass. They trapped the Ten Tails within a minute and there’s no doubt in my mind that the First Hokage will leave it to the rest of the Hokage’s in order to fight Madara. I’m pretty sure that that’s how it went in the manga (it’s been a very long time).Read More
It was a good episode, but I think it’s too bad that Ken only received his mask at the end of the episode. We’ve already passed the halfway point and Ken has yet to let loose. He is still the same weakling that we have come to know and love.
It was painful to see Ken completely helpless as Hinami’s mother was slaughtered by her own husband’s weapon. Those guys are merciless. They think that Ghoul are the monsters, but Ghouls still kill to eat (most of them do anyway). They kill because they actually seem to enjoy it. That guy, Kureo I believe, couldn’t stop smiling as he tore apart Hinami’s mother. And Ken? He just stood there watching because he knew that it would be suicidal to fight them. Rough scenes like that are really heavy on the mind. Your average viewer cannot help but sympathize with Hinami and the ever so helpless Ken.
I’m glad to see that Touka took it personal. She decided to go out and fight those guys. It surprised me to see how little damage she did. She could take on that young agent because he didn’t have his weapon with him, but that old guy showed up and nearly whooped her ass. You can consider Tokyo Ghoul dropped instantly if Touka were to die like that.
Now then… Will Ken finally get that power boost that we all have been waiting for? Will he become that legendary, one-eyed Ghoul that we have heard so much about? I doubt it. It’s been going so slow and he only just received that mask. I doubt a mask could give a Ghoul more power, so I’m guessing we’ll be watching a couple of episodes with him training.Read More
Aha, okay. The final battle is finally in sight, huh? I have yet to encounter an enemy worthy of Tatsuya’s attention. It’s all been a bunch of fools and pansies that can fight from away through mindless pawns. Didn’t they know that you have to do it yourself if you want things to be done right?
So Tatsuya accepted yet another job that wasn’t his to begin with. He has been doing this a lot. I actually started asking myself what the point of it was. The wall that separates course one students (Blooms) from course two students (Weeds) is still standing strong and doesn’t appear to be cracked. So what if Tatsuya is a student council member and helped defeat the strongest school in the tournament with two other course two students? It doesn’t really matter of people continue to treat those students the same as before. It just seems pointless, that’s all.
So this character shows up, a woman, and things just go south. This woman has a dreadful look on her face and looks as though she’s about to attack. This woman, Sayuri, married their father six months after their mother died, which is why Miyuki hates her guts. She acted really strange (almost sexual) and quite rude. Not that I can blame her, seeing as that woman seems to have a bad attitude.
What happened though? Tatsuya technically refused her offer and she left. She got ambushed and Tatsuya had to come and save the day (and the artefact and his stepmother). That means that the final battle is finally sight. Tatsuya will have to uncover the artefacts power and fight off a bunch of enemies at the same time. This should prove to be quite interesting.Read More
