    The war continues. For what reason I don't really remember. At this point I'm just watching for the fights.

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Tokyo Ghoul √A

    Episode 22 - "Hard Rain"

    Kaneki's friends from Anteiku are defeated one by one but he arrives to help them. Juuzou and Shinohara are locked in a long, fierce battle with Yoshimura. Amon faces off against Kaneki, but with victory in sight for the CCG, the One-Eyed Owl appears before the investigators.

    I'd say "don't post spoilers" here, but on this basis...just don't tell us what happens.

    Last time: I've heard of cola wars, but COFFEE wars?

    Oh, so this is still going on?

    "He's not gonna hit anyone if he yells out every time he attacks!"
    This is your first anime, isn't it?

    Score one for the Freddy-nator.

    Did she just say "man-grel"?

    The dialogue is taking a turn for the cheesy right now.

    And YOUR mother wears combat boots.

    The final redemption of what's her name.

    Don't give him backstory, don't give him backstory, don't give him backstory...the hell happened to your lips?!

    Not really digging this Trigun reboot.

    Man, that's a bad case of gingivitis you've got, Hachikawa.

    Oh, NOW you show up.

    "Now I understand, Kaneki."
    Well maybe explain it to US sometime.

    GOOD LORD WILL YOU STOP TRYING TO DEIFY THE CHILD KILLER!!!

    I...really don't know who to root for in this fight. I can't cheer on the cops. Everyone admires the psychopath would-be child killer Mado while chastising the lipless guy for nearly getting an old lady caught in the crossfire, on top of Evil Alphonse Elric. And the ghoul characters aren't all that interesting.

    Also, Evil Alphonse Elric's scythe isn't practical because the blade would snap in two on its first use.

    Yeah, Emo Rosalina, your boyfriend's here.

    Oh, that's who they were.

    Uhh, okay...are you done? Is that it?

    WOULD YOU JUST DIE!?

    Oh, there's the owl guy.

    Episode 22 was okay/intense,

    Touka to not wanna lose her friends was nice/understandable, she'll develop and be a better person and less witchy though.

    Yoshimura and the ghoul allies vs. the ghoul investigators was pretty intense.

    Both Enji and Kaya the ghoul allies fought hard, the poor guys.

    Ken Kaneki saving Enji/Kaya after crushing the ghoul investigators was sweet:D, the creepy lipless ghoul investigator so deserved it.

    Nice seeing Hideyoshi spying.

    Yukinori/Juuzou(Evil Alphonse) vs. Yoshimura was intense, still love Juuzou's dub voice.

    Kureo Mado admired is so terrible writing, so disgusting.

    Poor Yoshimura will be missed, farewell:(, the poor ghoul allies, I knew he's not gonna survive.

    Ken vs. Amon begins.

    The real One-Eyed Owl showing up was interesting, one intense cliffhanger.

    It's interesting how most of this battle involves minor background extras nobody cares about while our main character doesn't do much of anything (let's call this type of battle a Gundam Unicorn battle).

    The dialogue quality seems to have gone down. Was Touka really just watching the fight the whole time?

    I think the Funimation actors were desperately trying to make the show less boring. The fact that we struggle to get 2+ pages on Tokyo Ghoul talkback threads says a lot.

    So the Devil Ape and Black Dog want to be punished for their sins by murdering a bunch of ostensibly law-abiding citizens with families?

    The second season disappointed me. It felt too stuffed with characters and a meandering plot. I don't even know if Touka accomplished anything for instance. She was such an interesting figure in season 1 then just went downhill, imo. Either that or this is a bridge season and they're badly seeded a bunch of characters and subplots that are needed for the next story arc - if there is one.

    It's been a few years, so I'm expecting no season 3. This season, along with Psycho Pass season 2 and Dragonball GT are probably the most hated anime sequels of all time.

    Bummer. I heard there was a sequel manga and some spin off prequels. Figured they would have made the former into an anime. There's some questions bugging me that I'm pretty sure won't be answered in the 1 or 2 episodes left.

    The ending for this will really anger the few people we have on these Tokyo Ghoul talkbacks. I kind of hope the anger is enough to stretch these threads to three pages. These have been the most banal of the Toonami talkback threads because of the banality of this season.

    Oh, the ending's something? I don't know what to make of that.

    That's troubling... So I take it'll be in the same vein as Kaneki joining Aogiri Tree. Hmm.
