Tokyo Ghoul RE: Anime Review(Some Spoilers Ahead)

Well Tokyo Ghoul Re is the sequel to Tokyo Ghoul√A  . 

You can start seeing some similarities there in terms of Art style and Stuff. Now Tokyo Ghoul Re is still carry’s a dark theme but it also has some comedy in it, something like in  Black Butler, where the whole theme is dark but you also have those chibi faces and quirky comedy, that was kinda different from what i was expecting but i’ll just say that it doesn’t really bother me but it might bother some fans( I don’t know if it is the same in manga but its there in the anime).

Story: So the direction of the story is kinda different with Kaneki now know as Haise is fighting with the CCG to fight against Ghouls. So when i actually started watching it i was left a bit confused, i had a lot of questions in my mind which most of them were answered after watching the 12 episodes but some of them still linger. The Pacing seems a bit fast probably because they only had 12 episodes to work with. I wonder why do they get just 12 episodes, Tokyo Ghoul is a pretty popular anime.  

Characters: So most of the older characters are still present here but we have some addition like Saiko, Urie, Shirazu,Tooru etc. Well basically these new characters are from Haise’s own team and i personally like Shirazu. Each of those guys have unique personalities and unique motivations to fight against Ghouls.

Soundtracks: Well nothing can top “Unravel”, so the soundtrack are well lets say Nice, nothing more nothing less. 

Animation: There are noticeable  downgrades from previous Seasons, Particularly during Fight scenes. The style which was present during the fights in the first and even some of the second season is now missing, those fight scenes don’t make a huge impact like previous ones.

Overall i liked binge watching the anime but only because the story was moving ahead and i was too lazy to read the Manga. Trust me i’ll read the manga eventually but till then i am  continuing with the anime. I just feel that the whole story is moving really fast with less explanation overall.  Also i know i am very late with this review but as of now the second season is airing so i thought it would be a good time to watch this season and then continue with the second one.

Gaikotsu Shotenin Honda-san- First Impression

This anime takes place in a book Store where the main protagonist a “Skeleton” works as a bookstore guy. The anime focuses on the hilarious and unique kind of characters that visit the Book Store(more like a comic Store).

There are people coming from all walks of life and Honda(skeleton) has to deal with them, sometimes they might be foreigners and sometimes very eccentric manga fans. The way he deals with them is pretty hilarious. 

The anime is around 11 minutes long with two short stories in each episode. So overall a really good anime, very light hearted and just funny overall, and i also like how they refer to other anime’s.The other people working in the store are also a bit unique in their own way. All in all i had pretty fun time watching this.

It was a like a breath of fresh air, since i have not been watching anime for a while, this one was perfect to start from.
