At this point, reviewing episode 11 while the magnificent episode 12 is out would be a complete waste. Now, being the last episode of a rather boring season, it HAD to be nothing less than magnificent, and I’m glad it actually delivered, because that episode ended up saving the whole season.
I didn’t enjoy most of the season, but that last episode was very satisfying, it covered a lot from Kaneki resurrection, to Anteiku’s potential revival. It included the death of a pretty important character, even though the latter had so much growth left in store, but that’s a classic touch from Tokyo Ghoul, it hits where you don’t expect it to. It also brought back a lot of the feels Tokyo Ghoul as whole installed in its fans, and with Kaneki’s revival, it brought the series back on its interesting track, but did so at the season’s end. sigh…
In how Kaneki’s revival shook and shifted the playground of the season and eventually the seasons thereafter, I feel this revival couldn’t have happened at early point in the season. So I guess the plot stalling had a meaning after all, and maybe all that familiarity the plot had us build with the characters of this season will pay off in the next.
Season 3 felt like a transition point, from season 2 to season 4, the stalling and the lack of serious development are what made this season rather dull. It’s hard to tell whether or not it was good to be honest, and because of that, I’m not going to say anything about it yet, I’m sure it’ll come to me in time, but for now I don’t know how to rate this season. Thank you for reading.
