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.
EPISODE 4-THIS EPISODE
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
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.
