‘Tokyo Ghoul’ is one of the most popular anime series of the modern era. While the show’s first two seasons were universally praised, the third season received mixed reviews from fans worldwide.
Some fans are so disheartened that they want the 4th season (or 5th season, depending on how the two parts of the third season are classified) to begin so they can forget about season 3’s extremely dark ending. Others have more to say about it.
‘Tokyo Ghoul: re‘ concluded with Haise Sasaki vs. Tsukiyama and Kanae. By the end, Sasaki has regained his true identity, and what follows is one brutal battle that strangely left a lot of fans disappointed.
Therefore, why are so many fans of the show dissatisfied with the conclusion? There are several reasons for this. To begin, readers looking forward to the final battle discovered that the ending did not live up to the manga.
A portion of the blame for the show’s lackluster conclusion should also go to Studio Pierrot and other animation studios commissioned by the show. We hope that the upcoming season of ‘Tokyo Ghoul: re’ miraculously revives the show.
For those unfamiliar with ‘Tokyo Ghoul,’ it is a Japanese anime series created by Sui Ishida. Ken Kaneki is a typical high school student with an ordinary life.
However, all of this changes when he goes on a date with a disguised ghoul and miraculously survives. When he awakens the next day, he discovers that he has transformed into a ghoul, a flesh-eating cannibal who poses as a human, all as a result of a surgery in which his organs were implanted from the ghoul who attempted to eat him.
He is then taken in by a society of Ghouls at a nearby cafe, who assist him in leading a somewhat normal life among humans without causing harm to them.
‘Tokyo Ghoul: re’ takes place two years after the events of the original story and follows Haise Sasaki, a CCG member (Commission of Counter Ghoul).
He leads a group of special squad members who have been implanted with the Quinque, a specialized weapon that transforms them into half-ghouls. However, the major twist here is that Haise Sasaki is none other than Ken Kaneki from the original series, suffering from temporary amnesia.
One thing that ‘Tokyo Ghoul: re’ has accomplished is successfully bridging the divide between the franchise’s two very distinct halves as depicted in the first two seasons. After the first season, many loose ends were left, but season three has managed to re-align the show with the original story and manga.
Tokyo Ghoul Season 3 Release Date
Season 3 of ‘Tokyo Ghoul’ debuted on April 3, 2018, concluding on June 19, 2018. This season has 12 episodes, which are 24 minutes long, as is customary for most anime.
Tokyo Ghoul Season 3 Plot
Season 3 begins with Ken Kaneki suffering from amnesia, which causes him to forget the majority of his history. For the time being, he is a brand-new figure called Haise Sasaki, who serves as a senior member of the CCG.
Day by day, memories of his previous life begin to return to him, and all the memories created by the CCG gradually begin to kick in, assisting him in making sense of all he is surrounded by.
Arima Kishou and Akira Mado supervise Haise, two senior members of the Commission of Counter Ghoul. They head a group of guys who work on the Quinx Project, which converts individuals into half-ghouls by transplantation actual ghoul organs.
The primary goal is to develop indestructible human robots capable of annihilating ghouls. These half-ghouls are born with a Kagune (ghoul’s weapon), and the CCG provides them with another Kagune.
Kaneki’s old pals are acutely aware of his identity dilemma and are attempting to rescue him from the fury of the CCG, dubbed “Dope.” Touka Kirishima, one of Haise’s squad members, has a younger brother named Ayato who works for a ghoul-run criminal organization called Aogiri Tree.
Every day, he risks his life here to protect his sister from these flesh-eating monsters. Eto Yoshimura, an SS-rated ghoul, launches an assault against the CCG and the Aogiri Tree, intending to destroy it utterly.
Haise Sasaki enters the fray with his Quinx squad, while the Antaiku gang sees this as a chance to liberate Ken Kaneki from the CCG. During the conflict, Haise begins to rediscover his earlier memories as Ken Kaneki and transforms into a whole new person with memories of his previous and current lives.
He eventually defeats the one-eyed ghoul, who the CCG after that imprisons.
However, amid this fierce struggle, Kaneki’s sister Hinami Fugeguchi is apprehended by the CCG and imprisoned for siding with them against the ghouls. Now that Haise’s Kaneki memories have returned, he is fully aware of Himani and what she means to him.
He accepts responsibility for her protection while she is in the custody of the CCG. This summarises the whole of the third season, which was split into two parts. Was this season a success or a failure for the series? Discover more by reading our review below.
