Tokyo Ghoul:re (2018) is the second season for Tokyo Ghoul:re, which was the third season overall, but actually was a second season to the first Tokyo Ghoul since the other second season didn’t count. Does all of that make sense? Cause that is how much of a mess this series had become.
The first Tokyo Ghoul was amazing as it took its time to introduce characters and develop them. The characters were the main focus while the actions help support its story and pacing. However, after the first season, the focus seems to shift to introducing a lot of characters and fighting at once. It’s like they look at a focus group and decide the first season was too slow to keep people interest so let just pump up the actions. Unfortunately, most of these actions are a generic mess of peons fighting peons. Peons A die and peons B die, no one care.
I was a little hesitant in my review for the last season, Tokyo Ghoul:re, as I knew ahead it was being split into two seasons. My hopes were most of the plot holes and gaps from that season will be answered in this season. That did not appear to be the case. We actually get more plot holes added just to justify a constant stream of generic action scenes. Who was that guy again? Oh he dies, oh well. Wait, I thought that guy was already dead, why is he here? Oh, he just dies, oh well.
The series throws so many characters at you and didn’t take the time to properly develop them. It’s hard to feel invested or sad when some character got introduced and die within the same episode. We get a constant bombardment of actions and new characters that it just made us numb to it all. It is one thing if the actions were memorable or actually good.
I would only recommend this season for the fans of the series but be prepared to temper your expectation. Turn your brain off to finish the series conclusion, then never look at it again. Tokyo Ghoul contains a high amount of graphic violence and some suggestive themes/dialogs. It is intended for mature audiences.
