Hey guys, how’s it going? Rahul here coming in with a brand new blog. I am really sorry for such a late post. This week has been extremely busy for me and the next week is going to be even more busy. So, I really do apologize for not posting on time. So, let’s begin!
This dark, fantasy anime was written by Sui Ishida and was aired in April, 2018.
No. of episodes: 12
- Ken Kaneki/ Sasaki Haise
- Kuki Urie
- Ginshi Shirazu
- Tooru Mutsuki
- Saiko Yonebayashi
- Touka Kirishima
- Shuu Tsukiyama
After Kaneki loses to Arima, he wakes up with no memories and Arima decides to use this so his advantage. He gives Kaneki a fake identity and convinces him he works for the CCG. Now, using new technology, the CCG are able to create a ‘ghoul squad’ to help in their mission to rid the world of ghouls.
But, Sasaki is slowly getting to know more about his inner Kaneki and is slowly turning into him. The story revolves around Kaneki’s reincarnation after his utter defeat to Arima.
This season for me was not all bad. But, I do have tons of friends who say otherwise. For me, this season was huge change. It felt like it changed from its’ dark style of anime and moved into more of a good guy kind of thing. And I would agree with a lot of people that quit after watching the first 3 episodes that this season didn’t seem to really meet all our requirements after that insane season 2 ending. But, if I do have one piece of advice, it would be to watch the whole thing and then judge whether it is a disappointment or not.
The complete change in pace brought to its’ audience a completely new story which was totally unrelated to seasons 1 and 2 and really got people wondering if this is the same ‘gory, action packed, insane’ anime we all saw and loved. Personally, I enjoyed the change in pace. It really brought out a new character in Kaneki and I thoroughly enjoyed watching him slowly develop over the entire season. We see Kaneki as a completely devoted CCG agent then, him discovering his inner Kaneki then, him slowly wanting to become Kaneki and finally, him becoming a sort of Kaneki. Although this was not what most people wanted, including myself, it really did come as a surprise when it did happen. But it did not fail to provide the same level of ‘goriness’ and ‘action’.
The anime definitely had its’ moments but there were times when even I was like, “Gosh, bring back the old kind of Kaneki already, I miss the action!”. The ending really had me though. The final episode displays a special fight that really reminds of season 2 and brings back our ‘sort of’ old Kaneki. We are shown a one-sided yet very enjoyable action scene that I really enjoyed.
One thing I will give this anime is its’ ability to kill people without any drama. It makes it feel all the more emotional. I really enjoyed all the scenes in which Kaneki would recount his past at Anteku.
One thing I did really miss and curse this anime for is how they still left the season 2 ending fight to our imagination. That being said, the anime has now provided MORE suspense for a season 4 and I, personally, can’t wait to see what they bring us next. Overall pretty good.
I would give this season of the anime 3.5/5 stars.
