Tokyo Ghoul root A is the sequel to Tokyo Ghoul which, to be honest left with a fucking cliff hanger. So if you have yet to watched the first season, go watch it first. Stop reading from this point until you have done that, if not, you are warned. YOU ARE FUCKING WARNED.
So assuming you are prepared for spoilers, let’s proceed.
The first two episode of this season was supposed to be the fucking ending of previous season. So i should not spoil anything here but you have to watch the first two episode of season 2 to truly understand how season 2 is going to be.
As you can see, the stupid kid kaneki has of course powered up into a monster. The story kinda dives in when you start to watching the 3rd episode and of course you get stupid people like seido of CCG telling a civilian, every.. single.. thing. You could see where this is going to right? Kaneki’s friend (civilian mentioned earlier) will probably be doing some shit like joining CCG or what not. Then of course they show us the CCG lab where they make weapons out of ghoul and guess what, this person whom you’ve seen (she looks like a ghoul herself) gets her own weapon, made out from….. DUH DUH DUMMMMMMM….
And then of course the competent CCG investigated further into the origin of our
stupid hero godly hero Kaneki and found a string of events that do not add up. Which of course leaves fans wondering what have they realised. and then.. For the next episode! “Deeper layers”.
I must say after watching the first two episodes of Tokyo Ghoul Root A, i feel like i do not need to catch this anime on a weekly basis. The 3rd episode confirms my suspicion but don’t get me wrong, this type of anime is best left to be watched in one sitting. For one, it is kinda predictable and also waiting every week for a show like this can get painful because they fucking love to leave you hanging on a cliff. Having said that, I might just watched the fourth this week and changed my mind but i highly doubt so.
Also as per advised, i will attempt to watch Death parade and yoru no yatterman.. But i also decided to try assassination classroom. Will post impressions after i’ve done that!.

One really good thing about anime bloggers is that they consolidate the list of anime that would be showing every season. I randomly go to any of the anime blogs that i follow, they will bound to have the list and they also come with trailers. The only anime that caught my eyes is “The Rolling girls” and after watching the trailer, i will watch it and post some impressions of it later. But for now, i am very interested and excited for it really, it has been a while since i am interested in anime..
So the current anime that I am watching is Log Horizon 2 and Yowamushi Pedal 2, both of which are sequels to their awesome 1st instalment. Sword Art online 2 (ended a few weeks back), wasn’t as great as its first but still i managed to get through it without giving up, i wished they should have broke SAO up into 13 episodes per season though.. Log Horizon 2 is really shaping up to reveal more clues regarding how they got trapped in the game world but I hope they don’t dominate the show with those stupid kids trying to level up and do the carry bag quest longer than 1/2 an episode..
As for yowamushi pedal, the interhigh finals is drawing near and it looks like a death match between experienced and well-seasoned 3rd years vs our otaku hero and his team of hotshots. Kinda predictable i guess, but i have invested so much time in it that i should see it to the end. But i feel that they are dragging it out sometimes, kinda like how dragonball z drags on forever to power up. There are scenes in yowamushi pedal that do not need to be in the show yet they still show it. This annoys me a little.
Hopefully The Rolling girls would be something nice to mix up a bit, I’ve got yowamushi on the tuesday and Log on the Sundays..
OH OH OH, just as i was about to hit publish, i kinda went looking around the comments and Tokyo Ghoul has a sequel ongoing at the moment! and fuck this trailer, they are not showing anything at all.. 😦 . Will post impressions of it after i watch a few episodes too.. heh this is exciting , more animes that are interesting!
