A Wisp of Thought

Caught up and finished Tokyo Ghoul. Majorly disappointed for the brief ending during the climactic action scene in Episode 12. Kaneki finally grew a pair and beating the shit out of Jason. There should have been one more follow-up episode to wrap the anime off, but now I’ve just found out a second season has been announced as well as the manga’s recent ending in Japan, so there is hope that this series will fix itself up. 

My main gripe with this series are 2 thins: the censorship and the pacing. Though ludicrous, the censorship I can pass by due to broadcast laws and they will probably be uncensored for the DVD/Blu-Ray releases. But still, it can get pretty distracting with a sudden inverted flip of colors and black half screens when something super violent goes on. 

The pacing has been getting worse after the midway point of the TG series, and we are suddenly introduced to all of these new characters and story arcs that we have to accept and absorb into. It makes things lazy and confusing, being as probably many viewers like myself have not read the manga, so it becomes something of a chore.

With most adaptations of manga series that I have read, most of them have cut off at the end as a “read the manga” ending, even though they do wrap up nicely on their own, but I find when an adaptation has done that, I find that to be a cop out and sort of cheat out of what the sales pitch is when this show was created. Even with adaptations of ongoing manga, when they run out of existing material to adapt, they can try and make up their own arc and endings. If done right in the spirit of the material, the audience will enjoy it, amongst other people who might disagree. 

The point being is that with this series, it was kind of a mess in terms of cramming or skipping important points of the manga in order to churn out only 12 episodes. Most characters I did enjoy and the world building was very interesting too, but I’m on the fence on continuing the series. Maybe when the entirety of Season 2 airs, then maybe I’ll binge watch it and come up with a conclusion with the full series in mind.

"Shoot, yeah! That could’ve saved a bunch of hassle… Okay, ‘you ever do it again and I’ll straight-up exorcise you with a fist to the face. Deal?"
"Deal."
