Tokyo Ghoul Season 3 Episode 12 Review
After regaining consciousness he cuts off Kanae’s arm. On the other hand, Ui and other Doves find Furuta who killed all other investigators and start acting to be as Sole Survivor. During his fight with Shirazu, Noro remembers when Yoshimura aka Kuze gave him Eto to take care of her. Shirazu unleashes his full power to fight against Noro to save everyone and dies due to his unrecoverable injuries.
Kaneki and Eto fight each other where Kaneki reminds her of his promise to Yoshimura to save her. He calls her piece A of trash who doesn’t deserve to be saved. After reaching on the roof, Ken Kaneki destroys her Kakuja with his Kagune and rips her apart. She licks her blood from his face and expresses her love for him while falling.
On the roof, Ui finds Kaneki devouring Eto’s Kakuja. He pretends to still be Sasaki and throw Tsukiyama from the building. Meanwhile, Kanae also jumps from Building to save Tsukiyama and she manages to save him with the cost of her life. Injured Tsukiyama got saved by saved by Touka, Yomo and Chie Hori. Kaneki meets Quinx Squad and sees Shirazu’s corps. Urie blames Kaneki for this happening and Kaneki coldly blames Urie for Shirazu’s death because of his weakness. White suits and other Aogiri members steal Shirazu’s corpse for experiments.
Ken Kaneki Is Back:
With the end of the season 3, Ken Kaneki is finally back and I loved his awakening scene was perfectly shown. He is back but this time he is darker and emotionless than ever. He puts Tsukiyama and Kane in do or die position where Kanae saved Tsukiyama as he planed and scold Urie for his weakness as the reason behind Shirazu’s death. He is more disturbed this time and his voice also go changed after awakening.
Finally, Shirazu overcomes his weakness in the final episode to protect everyone but his move cost him his life. He was a cool and kind guy who always work hard to have money to treat her sister. At his last moments, he talked about her and asked Urie to take care of her.
The final episode was lacked a lot of animation quality majority in the final fight. I can understand that they are suffering from revenue problem but at least final fight scene between Eto and Ken Kaneki should be shown in a good way like fights of root A.
Tokyo Ghoul Season 3 also received some criticism about the way the studio is cover the manga chapters. But it was not in their hands as a publisher is Shueisha. Maybe this is an idea of Shueisha to not to convey every detail of manga through anime as this can affect their manga sales.
With having some major issues, Tokyo Ghoul:re anime did a reasonable job to simply the manga. It doesn’t lose major moments from the manga and there was no pitfall. I know manga fans are majorly disappointed with the Tokyo Ghoul:re but overall Pierrot Studio did their best in conveying fundamental events of the manga which can remind even in their worst conditions.
Tokyo Ghoul:re Season 2 is already in development and will be airing from 2 October. I think the pace of covering chapter will be the same and hoping pierrot studios’ economic conditions become good before season 4 and they will give episodes of best animations. Regardless its animation and connection with manga, Tokyo Ghoul season 4 will be the best as Ken Kaneki is back now and the major fight between him and Arima will take place.
