Tokyo Ghoul Episode 2-4 Anime Review

The prime reason why love anime and Tokyo Ghoul. The censorship is used so creatively. Or is it censorship in Tokyo Ghoul Episode 4

The prime reason why love anime and Tokyo Ghoul. The censorship is used so creatively. Or is it censorship in Tokyo Ghoul Episode 4? Nobody can know until the physical home video release.

EPISODE 2-I have to say for me seeing Kaneki’s out of control side is one of the most fun to see. Granted his mindset at these times seems so sadistic and crazy but the performance given by Natsuki Hanae is astounding. Breath-taking! Kanezi looks and sounds absolutely crazy because of who happens to be voicing him.

Probably at the time now that recall it seemed like Tokyo Ghoul couln’t get better since okay it was already freaking amazing but this assumption was way wrong.

EPISODE 3-Probably one of the slower and quiter episodes so far in the Tokyo Ghoul anime series. We get an insider look at the world of Ghouls. Kaneki is shown how to fit in to human society better but meanwhile those shady Doves or Ghoul Investigators are hunting down Ghouls all over. Their path seems set on a confrontation with Kaneki or his loved ones or both. The mystery is still there and too many unknowns.


Was stolen away by Tsukiyama’s (CV: Mamoru Miyano) appearance.

What was going on. On! Tsukiyama was getting way to close for comfort toward Kaneki. Too weird. The weirdness of it all. That said it was an impressive speech Tsukiyama gave thanks in part to the voicing talents of Mamoru Miyano. Props also go to those involved with coming up with this legendary speech on why book lovers love books so much.

Things got better still even after the thrill ride that was Episode 2. Again see how Tokyo Ghoul surprises and amazes.

Tokyo Ghoul Episode 2-4-Review

There are just no words to describe this! LoL.-Tokyo Ghoul Episode 4

I am just absolutely addicted to Tokyo Ghoul. If it wasn’t for the existence of Free! Eternal Summer this anime series would be my absolute number #1 favorite anime series this Summer 2014 Anime Season.

This is a dark almost playful on the sadistic side series. Yet there are moments of this sunny side to the series or it could just be the Ending Theme Song lulling me into a false sense of hope. Within the series examples include Kaneki going about his life still drinking coffee and worrying about his reading habits as prime examples. Still it can get further dark out of nowhere and even strange as seen in Episode 4.

It has gorgeous animation and character designs are very appealing. If you like visually stunning animation to your anime series then let your mouth water at the work of art that is Tokyo Ghoul.

I am completely sticking with this series. A fourth episode mark has been reached and the story’s direction seems very intriguing more so as episodes keep releasing. Sure would recommend this series instantly!

A complete series review is planned for later. Also with concern to Tokyo Ghoul have only been exposed to the anime series. These reviews are from an anime viewer only point of view. Never checked out the manga series at all.

  1. Miyano Mamoru totally suits Tsukiyama’s character! Such a great vocal range that he can switch between his calm, mannered, intellectual side, all the way to his crazy creepy sadistic side. I don’t think that they could have picked a better suited voice actor for such a psycho character.


    • I had always wondered why people made a buzz about Mamoru Miyano. I wondered why but I guess part of the reason may be voice talent?

      In Episode 4 of Tokyo Ghoul I have to acknowledge he is a very talented voice actor, indeed. I mean he has I think from anime he has starred in about 6 different vocal ranges. In Nobunaga the Fool as Nobunaga he sounds way different. Yogi in Karneval. Rin in Free! Iwatobi Swim Club and Free! Eternal Summer. Then also as Joker in Black Butler 3: Book of Circus. And much so as Tsukiyama in Tokyo Ghoul.
