Tokyo Ghoul:re – 07

「心覚え在りし日々 mind」 (Kokorooboe Arishi Hibi mind)

Tokyo Ghoul:re – 04

「オークション MAIN」 (Ookushon MAIN)
“MAIN: Auction”

So much happened that it’s difficult to discuss the events of this episode under any particular unifying theme. However, I think we can all agree that there was an underground auction of live humans, that the CCG promptly gatecrashed.

Tokyo Ghoul: Jack – OVA

「東京喰種トーキョーグール [JACK]」 (Tokyo Guuru [JACK])
“Tokyo Ghoul: JACK”

Tokyo Ghoul is back with an episode centered around Arima and his highschool classmates. Expect lots of blood, plenty of ghouls, some familiar faces, and a healthy dose of tragedy to wash it all down.

Tokyo Ghoul Root A – 08

「旧九」 (Kuzen)

Honestly, between the first and second halves of this season of Tokyo Ghoul √A, it’s almost hard to believe it’s the same series.
