東京喰種[トーキョーグール]:re (2018) [Tōkyō Gūru:re (2018)]


Kaneki Ken has finally regained memories of his former self, but this once again leaves him at a crossroads in the war between human and ghoul. After donning a pair of glasses to mirror his mentor Arima, Kaneki's new assignment is to manage the interrogation of Eto, the One-Eyed Owl, after she reveals her ghoul nature in a press conference about the publication of her newest book, which she claims will bridge the gap between the two warring sides. Now interred in Cochlea, Eto eagerly awaits the awakening of the "One-Eyed King", but only Kaneki seems to understand what she's really planning. As Aogiri Tree descends on the facility to rescue their leader, Kaneki turns to one of his oldest friends for help in his new secret mission.

TL;DR Review

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.

My suggestion would be to only watch the first season of Tokyo Ghoul and the two OVAs. You can also watch the live action film if you feel adventurous. Ignore the rest.

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.

"Never trust anyone too much, remember the devil was once an angel."
Juuzou Suzuya
"If an angelic being fell from the sky and tried to live in this world of ours, I think even they would commit many wrongs."
Kaneki Ken
"As my fingers and toes re-grew like fingernails or hair over and over and over and over... and over again, every single time I got the feeling that I truly, truly was a monster."
Kaneki Ken
"You're wrong. It's not the world that's messed up; it's those of us in it. Yes, some ghouls walk a path that leaves sorrow in their wake, but just like humans, we can choose a different path altogether. We have a lot to learn, both your kind and mine. We need to stop fighting and start talking. Because when it comes to the state of the world, you can't point your finger at ghouls or humans. We're all to blame."
