How do you feel about the ending?

Was showing the coffee shop a cop out or was it foreshadowing things to come (:re animated by Pierrot aka true suffering)?

It probably would've been a good ending if the entire rest of the episodes weren't complete shit.

I was yelling at my monitor when it showed Touka jogging to Kaneki while cutting to Anteiku burning

Like fuck, did she forget that she's a goul?

I thought ghouls with her type of Kagune were supposed to be fast

If the other 90% of the episode wasn't the worst kind of filler I feel like I'd be able to choke it down.

I just wish they'd ended it with Arima and Kaneki staring down, and then we can have the fight next season

I thought it was nice Hide finally got some of the screentime he has desperately needed. If only he hadn't gone and died.

It's filler , ghouls are machine-gun bullet timers(on touka's level at least) and she should be able(without her kagune) to move near sound speed(more with kagune)

She should've reached Anteiku in like 10 minutes at a tranquil pace

>"My severe injuries had healed and the sweet taste of blood coated my mouth. I kept walking, my goal vague...trying to dispel the building unease in my chest... Upon entering an open area was the scent of rotting flowers and in the middle of the flowerbed, he stood... Without anyone saying a thing, without his name given, like an unsolved puzzle falling into place by itself, just by seeing that figure, I--understood exactly who I faced. The CCG's reaper. The undefeated ghoul investigator. A cold, vivid gaze. There, stood the God of Death. Why was it that I was seeing beauty in death rather than life? Strangely, I thought he was beautiful... Disoriented, I had failed to comprehend the scene before my eyes. It was not anything like flowers but a large amount of "Death". Had he done this alone?... It's a lie... Koma...Irimi...After all that... No matter how I tried to rouse my will to fight with hatred, more than sorrow, more than rage, the emotion that arose within me was despair.
Because 'my turn' was next." ~Ken Kaneki

To be fair that happened in the intro of one of the episodes as a nightmare sequence. The effect certainly wasn't as strong as he realized it from a stupid dream and not him being psychotic from having a gaping wound inside him crawling around in a sewer.

Ok so let me be concise

Anime was great, really well done, only autists will have some technical problems with it. The ending however is just retarded, I don't know what they were thinking rushing all of that manga content into one episode.

Any who :re is pretty much confirmed at this point so manga autists fuck yourselves we're getting another season :^)

And now its time to read the manga from the beginning

Overall a solid 7.2/10 imo, first season did it better

Hideki and Kaneki meet at anteiku and exchange a couple of words before hiedki ( might be writing his name wrong) collapses of blood loss, kaneki realises how much of a fuck up his life has become and decides to burn anteiku to the ground as well as turn himself in for immenent death, touka was still pretty much running around and when she sort of caught up to him the big tall blonde guy prevented her from going to him because he wanted to keep touka safe and he knew kaneki was on his way to die

I absolutely despise how many gut wrenching scenes from the manga are missing, but judging the anime by itself, it was a decent episode seeing as there will be a third season/ separate anime if you will.

I'd argue the writing was shaky from the start, s1 was even worse with pacing. The alternate end is pretty easy to overlook when you consider we did get some information that may be relevant to who's alive in RE: (maybe). Although they really dropped the ball on most fronts leaving out V14 and Kanou's lab. OVA might at least give us a good show of kanekipede's final form and give away a bit more info maybe a clown scene etc. I think overall the last episode was nowhere near the worst offense compared to leaving out those critical things.

So Kaneki went for the "together in death" ending for himself and Hide.

Admittedly some of the season looked cool but this was a wholly disappointing episode.

That long walk Kaneki had was fucking lame instead of dramatic or whatever they were thinking.

Guys, I've read the manga up until the point where Kaneki half-kills Ayato.

It's been a few months since I read up to chapter 40 and it's been even longer since I saw the season 1 anime but from what I can tell, not much was left out.

Details over Rize's background and the doctor, Banjou and his crew getting more exposition, a tad more exposition overall but that's all I can remember so far.

Somebody know from the top off their head what else was missing?
Or should I reread from the start again?

Rereading it shouldn't take too long. You might notice things you didn't notice before too.

An easy example: compare the Yamori fight. In the anime, it's shonen, with a few kagune attacks.
In the manga, we see his thoughts, where he thinks about how to best take Yamori down, he strategizes, and there's not just this shonen-esque kagune clashing. Kaneki actually wrestles Yamori into the wall while he attacks him.
It looks a lot more immersive and intense.

>>123115291
Well to be fair, the lack of explanation sucked and shit was underdeveloped. Everything felt really pointless or random and like it could've easily been avoided, especially Hide's death, Amon's death and most of the other stuff, too.

Ignoring this and that they obviously ran out of animation budget (hence having Kaneki walk for 10 minutes) from an emotional standpoint it was perfection though.

When watching I didn't care about the plotholes, only after when thinking about it I got pretty mad because it all made very little sense.

If you've read the manga I don't think there's much to complain though since you do have the information.
It's like with the Battle Royale movie, I was initially angry as fuck because they left out basically everything characterwise and made it a dumb splatter, but if you view the movie as an addition or supplement of some sort that shouldn't stand on its own, it's okay.

Of course not being able to stand on its own is a rather large flaw but as a manga reader I think I could look past that.

How did Hide survive in the first place anyways?

>>
>>123115578
Nah, it just reminds me of when the manga ended.
>>
>>123115609
yes, cause we could have actually seen aogiri shit.
>>
>>123115612
I think that week was a lot worse, Anime-onlys can turn to the manga and have an OVA to look forward too; we didn't know shit back then, people were saying that peirrot made the 1st season so shit that Ishida canceled the manga.
>>
>>123115495
>>123115542
I thought Hide was a ghoul for the longest time because of that situation where he almost died and they showed him after recovering on a bed in Anteiku. As if he got turned into a ghoul.
>>
Well this shit was worse as Pyscho Pass 2.

What a shitty ending.
>>
It was fucking shit, The only decent thing was the song playing while he was carrying Hide.
>>
>>123115847
No one except Kanou (and maybe some CCG scientists) knew it was even possible to turn a human into a ghoul, why would a random old man know?
>>
>>123115872
>!!vKeby4ZIHS
Opinion discarded.
>>
>>123115536

No, it wasn't good because it didn't have any rhyme or reason, and must have been the laziest, most cheap ending ever. People were asking for a touching episode. Not a touching repeating gif with a changing background.
Continue eating more shit and then trying to convince others it's gold, Tumblr.
>>
>>123115894
How would I know? Nothing in this clusterfuck was explained properly.
>>
>>123115847
Nishiki didn't fuck up Hide that bad. He just kicked him around and puked on him.

>>123115913
>Kaneki wakes up in the cafe

>while drinking it you found out Hide has a wound
>Hide dies in Kaneki's arms

>Arima walks up to him
>Kaneki puts Hide down
>Fades to black
>older Touka shown
>Touka opened a cafe called :re, hinting at a continuation
Seems pretty reasonable to me.
>>
How faithful to manga was this? Do the same events even happen in manga?
>>
>Hide is wounded. Tatara and Noro caught him, yet somehow he got away alive and stayed alive for long enough to drag Kaneki back and make him coffee.
>Autismo is being an autist and looking at the sky
>Hide dies but actually doesn't die and Kaneki sheds muh blood tear
>Kaneki and Hide nearly burnt to a crisp. Touka is being useless and watches Anteiku burn
>Kaneki finally decides to get up and takes Hide with him
>Touka watches him leave Anteiku and somehow can't keep up, even though she was dodging bullet rain before
>Yomo finally decides to interfere, after letting her spend her time wandering around CCG territory for more than two episodes
>Kaneki goes muh suicidal over the loss of Hide, even though he has a lot of people who feel the same way about him as he does about Hide
>Walk cycle engaged

>End of finale
>Post-ending scene about how Studio Pierrot intends to butcher :RE as well.
And here I was being generous. It was shit. They're probably laughing their ass off right about now.

>Easiest finale we ever animated, and what an easy cash cow
>>
>>123109498
The only difference between the anime and manga finale is that te anime had left more questions unanswered.
>>
>>123116230

This bullshit about the manga leaving a lot of questions unanswered is overblown. Would it have been shit for no :RE? Sure thing.
But it's totally incomparable to just how shit this finale was.
No closure, no anything. A majority of it is Kaneki walking, and then suddenly not walking and it cutting to a black screen.
In the manga, Kaneki and Arima fought, and Kaneki was presumed dead. We found out about the clowns. We were shown Eto's plans with Yoshimura, the aftermath of the Anteiku Raid from the CCG side.
Yes, a lot of people hated that it seemed like this was just how it ended in the manga, and rightfully so, but it's not nearly as bad as in the anime.
>>
>>123116205
>Tatara and Noro caught him
Noro, someone that stops attacking on command saw him in an ally away from his objective.
>Kaneki goes muh suicidal over the loss of Hide
His best friend just died in front of him.
>even though he has a lot of people who feel the same way about him as he does about Hide
Not in the anime.
>Hair turns black but totally doesn't you guys
It's symbolism dumbass.
>CCG stares like a bunch of idiots at an SS+ Kakuja ghoul
First time they've seen a one eye up close.
>Walk cycle engaged
epic meme bro!
>>
>>123116205
this was a pretty good summary
>>
>>123116196
Anyone? Also I've been trying to read this chapter http://bato.to/read/_/267201/tokyo-ghoul_ch139_by_anonymous/10. But is the translation wrong or something? I don't understand what the fuck Kaneki is saying
>>
>>123116333
>No closure, no anything.
What closure did the manga get that the anime didn't other than the clowns?
You guys have yet to explain what you mean by "no closure".
>>
>>123116381
Kaneki got stabbed in the brain, he's a little insane so of course it makes little sense.
If there's a particular page you think has to be wrong feel free to post it.
>>
>>123116031
Was it really Kaneki who burned down Anteiku? Why would he do that? I assumed it was the CCG.
>>
>>123116421
Because he thought everyone was dead
>>
>>123116421
Could've been Yomo, was probably Kaneki though since he saw it as the end for Anteiku.
>>
>>123116359
>you watched it wrong
>>
Well anyway. We Don't have to care for the anime now. The manga is still ongoing and it already a huge success. If people don't wanna read the manga because of the anime then who cares.
>>
>>123116455
No, you're letting your bias against the anime (which was rightfully deserved of course) cloud your judgment.
>>
the only good part of the episode wast he ed.
>>
So was the prison arc worth even putting in the damn show?
It introduced painfully slow and disjointed bullshit, lame as shit characters, and power level fuckery.

Whats the point sense none of it tied into anything happening later? They could have just done this in a flashback or something.
>>
>>123116486
i'm not the person you replied to
I don't have a bias against the show
i liked it
but i still think the ending was shit and tried to be deep but failed
>>
I think toukas purpose in the raid was to make us think she dies and not hide
>>
>>123116519
It was there to show kaneki's kakuja.
the he never uses again
except for going cookoo in an abandoned building
>>
>>123116519
I'm thinking ishida made a script too big for the anime
>>
>>123116519
it gave us that one part with tatara i guess. he was the only guy that got more development in the anime.
>>
>>123116359

>Noro, someone that stops attacking on command saw him in an alley away from his objective.
I would've accepted that point if he was totally unhurt. They tried to go for something they could have easily done in another way where it would have worked better.
>His best friend just died in front of him
Yes, and Touka's parents died, and his brother became part of a ghoul terrorist group, and Eto had no parents, only rivals from the moment she was dropped in the sewer by Yoshimura. Kaneki has gone through worse, and it's extremely out of character for him to go suicidal over that. Will it hurt him? Obviously. Turn him suicidal? No.
>Not in the anime
Yes in the anime. He had Aogiri, still, Touka, Yomo, Hinami, and although many dislike him, he had Tsukiyama. Although we now know better, he didn't at that point, so we can count Uta and Itori as well. And so on, and so on.
>It's symbolism dumbass
Correction: it's SHIT symbolism. If you want good symbolism, read the manga.
>First time they've seen a one eye up close
And that suddenly means they shouldn't shoot? Sweet
>epic meme bro
"pls no bully my perfect animu ;_;"
>>
>>123116588

Yeah, what even was the point of showing him going cookoo. Yeah, yeah, to make the deal with him rejecting his kakuja form during Amon's fight make sense, I suppose.

Why TG:re story and action so fucking chaotic. It's like this manga is drawn by mentally unstable individual. Also is pic related guy or girl I can't tell anymore with all this stupid crossdressing.
>>
Whatever happened to that author chick with glasses who stalked Hinami?

Dropped by the anime completely, I assume in the mango she plays a greater role?
>>
So how did the anime end? I watched a couple episodes but dropped it since they leave out 90% of the story
>>
>>123116805
Read the thread you colossal faggot
>>
>>123116196
Completely different.
>>123116381
Kaneki goes insane in kakuja mode.
>>
>>123116729
>Yes, and Touka's parents died, and his brother became part of a ghoul terrorist group
So she went basically suicidal attacking doves.
>Eto had no parents
We know nothing of her backstory.
>Kaneki has gone through worse
You clearly don't realize how important Hide was to him. He was the only friend Kaneki had until he became a ghoul. And even as a ghoul anime Kaneki has basically nothing.
>He had Aogiri
He was treated like a slave.
>still, Touka, Yomo, Hinami
Who he abandoned.
>he had Tsukiyama
Not an upside to have a stalker.
>we can count Uta and Itori as well
Random people he met through friends isn't a friend you can fall back on when your best friend fucking died in front of you.
>Correction: it's SHIT symbolism. If you want good symbolism, read the manga.
Don't see a problem with it, it shows Kaneki appearing to have black hair to show how he changed back to how he used to be.
>And that suddenly means they shouldn't shoot?
He was holding Hide and was nonthreatening. Not to forget the only one eye they knew of would've been Eto so shooting would mean instant death.
>"pls no bully my perfect animu ;_;"
It's far from perfect but the ending was pretty good.
>>
>>123116769
I'm assuming that isn't the pic you wanted and were referring to useless trap.
Tooru's a chick that wants to be seen as a guy (probably because her family was ripped to shreds by ghouls and she couldn't do anything to stop it so feels women are weak). Still a girl though.
>>
>>123116791
That's Eto, SSS rank Owl (father is Yoshimura who's also SSS rank Owl, they share the kakuja look and the CCG thought they're the same person).
>>
I think Im one of the few who actually liked the ending. I would have preferred if they followed the manga but I still thought it was good. Although the whole series is shit.
>>
>>123117020
Aaahh, right.
How did I miss that, her face was revealed in the last episode after all.
I'm too retarded for this shit.
>>
Am I the only one that liked the walking scene? While I have my gripes with the ending and the overall execution of the anime, I liked where it was trying to go, though it could have been done better, but not in the span of 20 minutes.

>Kaneki loses Hide just after Hide reveals he knew the whole time about him being a ghoul
>his unwavering acceptance and support of Kaneki despite being a ghoul finally brought Kaneki to a smile
>he weeps at the loss of his best friend and his one connection to his life as a human
>during the raid they highlighted Kaneki's desire to bring the 2 worlds of humans and ghouls together
>he realizes the futility of constantly fighting as the chase for his family of Anteiku will never stop
>walks down the street with Hide in arms, kakugan exposed, no kagune out, and a somber look on his face
>CCG is at first uneasy but are then surprised with Kaneki carrying his a human in the CCG
>much of the CCG sees them as nothing but monsters and are surprised by what they are seeing
>also keep in mind that word had been spreading around by radio of kaneki and his lack of casualties and him disarming troops rather than killing
>he did this to show his humanity, the changing colors of his hair representing him coming full circle (somewhat)

That's what I got from the last episode. The ambiguity with his confrontation of Arima left much to be desired, but I can understand why they would cut it out given the direction this episode went, as much as I would have loved to see the absolute mindfuck that Kaneki goes through in his fight with Arima in the manga. Also, I found that the walk to Arima in the anime would have been more powerful if they had given more information on Arima and his reputation as the god of death to ghouls. Having read the manga, it felt like Kaneki was walking to his execution with that unwavering somber expression.
>>
>>123116205
My biggest problem with this episode was that scene when Kaneki held Hide, then the white cloth got blown away by the wind, but the next shot still shows Hide covered with the damn cloth.

At least if you want a shitty ending, make it consistent, damn it.
>>
>>123117130
The walking scene was great but at the same time it took so much time of the show when there were other pressing matters.
>>
>>123117130
The walking did drag on a bit but I liked it.
>>
>>123117130
I liked the walking. The hair flip, not so much.
>>
Anyone play the TG mobile game on Bluestacks? Laggy at all?
>>
Do you think they will adapt :re with Root A as the source or will they reboot the anime someday and then move on to :re? It's Pierrot so I'm prepared for everything.
>>
>>123117130
This is pretty much how I feel about the episode as well.
>>
>>123117163
I agree, but on the same token, they wouldn't have been able to properly tie everything up in the span of 20 minutes.

>>123117178
The scenes in the walking I think were a good addition. For much of the anime, you see much of the CCG troops as emotionless, faceless grunts and seeing them trying to help each other stay alive and mourning the loss of their friends was nice, as well as the massive casualties on all sides further highlighting the futility that Kaneki might have realized.
>>
>>123117250
Lags also on my Nexus 7 so i dont think you can do anything about it.
>>
>>123117316
I dont see why they would adapt :re. Hinami isn't there. Hide is dead. It's just too different.


I mean technically you can make a twist with takizawa appearing out of nowhere and then showing later that he has the owls kagune to imply that they are using yoshimura.

But again. Please no.I was fine with Root A because i understood that the tg manga was not very popular when the season was being made but at this point they are just beating me to death with the anime if they make a 3rd season. People should just read the manga. If you don't wanna then whatever. TG will be doing great without you.
