Tokyo Ghoul

You have been waiting three tedious years for this announcement. Fortunately, your expectations were not in vain. In 2017, Marvelous announced that Tokyo Ghoul:re manga is getting a television anime adaptation which is scheduled to premiere in 2018. However, one more year had passed before Pierrot announced the exact release date for the third installment of Tokyo Ghoul. Finally, on February 19, 2018, it was revealed in the 12th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Young Jump magazine that Tokyo Ghoul will return for Season 3 subtitled Tokyo Ghoul:re on April 3, 2018, at 11:00 p.m. This announcement is official. To be sure of this, we suggest you visit the official website of the anime. You may watch the official trailer for Season 3 below.

Unfortunately, there has been no news about the number episodes for the upcoming installment. But we hope the third season will last for two cours. However, as you may have remembered, the two previous seasons consisted of twelve episodes each. Tokyo Ghoul:re will be broadcast on Tokyo MX and later on Sun TV, TV Aichi, TVQ, and BS11. There are no data about the international broadcaster as if yet. Most likely, as previously, we would see the anime on Adult Swim's Toonami.

Tokyo GhoulSeason 3 Synopsis

According to the official synopsis, a third chapter picks up two years after the end of the original series and introduces the main lead character. Unfortunately, there is no more official info about the storyline of the upcoming season. However, we could spoil a bit by borrowing some data from the original manga.

The story will revolve around the new title character, Haise Sasaki, who is introduced after the death of Kaneki. He belongs to Quinx Squad also known as Qs Squad, whose fellows are ordinary humans who have passed through surgery when the quinque of a ghoul is embedded into their bodies as a result. Despite the fact that these people are not ghouls, in fact, they nonetheless are the subjects of prejudice and discrimination. Sasaki will soon obtain the nickname of the Black Reaper by the ghouls. In the meantime, they want to live in the world where both humans and ghouls can coexist together harmoniously.

What Is Tokyo Ghoul About?

The setting of the anime is an alternate world where ghouls are living among humans. These beings can't survive without human flash. However, unlike much similar anime series, they are out of the law. As a result, ghouls always try to hide from the authorities. Of course, these creatures are faster, stronger, as well as smarter compared to ordinary humans.

Ken Kaneki was unlucky to date with a female ghoul. As a result of the unsuccessful surgery, he turned into a half-ghoul. Thus, unlike other ghouls, Kaneki feels himself closer to humans, and he doesn't want to harm them thereby. But he needs to eat human flesh like his vampire brethren to survive. Otherwise, he will die. So, Kaneki must cope with his new way of life, trying to maintain his contacts with humans and ghouls alike.
