Yeah, I’ve seen the third episode. And I thought I wanted to focus on the fourth episode. But the truth is, Tokyo Ghoul is dead. It started dying near the end of the first season, and that finale episode that we all liked so much was just the show’s pathetic cry for help. But it’s no use. The shitty CCG episodes that plagued the last few weeks of the first season are now the rule. Even though the third episode finally turned its attention on Touka and Hinami, it didn’t even come close to capturing the spirit of the first season. All Touka did was visit Ken’s old haunting grounds and look sad. As for Ken, well… let’s put it this way. If this was a live action show, you’d think that the actor was just too busy filming a movie, and that is why he is practically nonexistent from the story. But no, that is not the case. The show’s primary writer has simply decided that he’d rather focus on anything but Ken. Anything but the characters that have already been established and developed. So instead, we introduce more characters:
And the sad thing is, these characters aren’t even fresh or original. They’re just shittier versions of the ones that have already died. The asshole that you see above is just a Yamori wannabe, but with the added benefit of being a whiny crybaby. And of course, Akira is just her father without his personality. I don’t even like Mado, but his daughter is so much, much more boring. And I suppose the writer can now pat himself on the back, because he has four different battles occurring in four different places. But I cannot find it in myself to give a shit about any of them.
Juzo fights off against some twins, but he is already bad enough as it is.
Seriously, who didn’t cringe hard when the guy picked up that shitty-looking scythe? It’s enough to make you think a 5-year-old kid wrote this story.
These girls, on the other hand, are so nondescript, we may as well have two of them.
Then we’ve got Touka’s boring ass brother, and his sole talent is to look angry over and over. Naturally, he gets to go up against this Terra Formars reject.
Dude emotes about as well as Touka’s brother anyway.
And I guess it wasn’t bad enough that Akira turned Amon down on that dinner. ‘Cause now, we get to watch those two attempt to rely upon each other. P-p-perhaps love can bloom on the battlefield!
But essentially, we got rid of Mado just to have a shitty Mado clone replace him. The only difference here is that Amon can finally fulfill his one wish to fuck his father figure like he always wanted. It’s too bad that priest was more interested in eating people.
Then finally, we’ve got Ken fighting Danny Trejo. I commend Trejo for his ability to take on many roles across many mediums, but Tokyo Ghoul has got to be a career low. Anyway, that’s all I’ve got. This show is dead.
