Tokyo Ghoul re anime began airing on April 3, 2018 and I must say I was somewhat impressed by what I saw in the first episode. I feel sorry for you if you’re an anime only watcher, because this isn’t going to make any sense for you, and of you’re hoping to get an explanation about what’s happening right now in the next few episodes, well that’s not coming as well.
To be able to understand the current events, you’ll need to read the original Tokyo Ghoul manga, and then head into re. Anyway, let me get to the topic now. Tokyo Ghoul re anime has already begun, and it looks like the anime is going to last for about 12 episodes only. But, we don’t know if that’s going to be it, or if we’ll get a continuation after that. Amazon have listed it as a 12 episodes only anime, having 6 DVDs.
I feel like 12 episodes are not enough to cover the stuff that they’re teasing right now. If they try to wrap it up in 12 episodes, the anime is going to skip over a lot of important stuff, which frankly speaking, it already has done in the first episode. Sorry to say this, but if your expect about the Tokyo Ghoul re anime were high, you’ll be disappointed because the anime won’t live up to them. It would be better if they somehow spread it over two cours. For now, it’ll last for only one cour, so here’s your Tokyo Ghoul re Episode Schedule:
Tokyo Ghoul re Episode 1 – April 3 2018
Tokyo Ghoul re Episode 2 – April 10 2018

Coming back to the anime adaptation, i feel like they’re rushing through most of the story, and they only care about the fights. Hopefully, they’ll prove me wrong but it definitely looks like that’s the case. The thing with Tokyo Ghoul is, fans don’t really care about the fights. Sure, they’re important. But, the story is far more important and Tokyo Ghoul re anime seems to be doing a bad job at adapting that probably. But hey, at least we get a great opening and ending.
