Tokyo Ghoul has been made very excellent, it’s interesting while the story of Tokyo Ghoul ended in the middle of the final battle—leaving the show largely without a climax or resolution. It didn’t even end on a cliffhanger. Instead, it ended before one could happen.

In my opinion, Kaneki didn’t die. Because after the part Kaneki show up, everyone would expect Kaneki died following the manga chapter, right? If Kaneki and Arima really fighting each other, how could Kaneki didn’t damage Arima, without a scratch to Arima? Source: Tokyo Ghoul Root A Episode 12, near last part it show Kaneki and Arima facing each other.
Thankfully, the first thing sequel series Tokyo Ghoul does is finish up the final battle and tie up the hanging loose ends. The battle even ends on an intriguing cliffhanger as the brutally tortured Kaneki decides to join the villains rather than return with his friends who came to rescue him.
While Tokyo Ghoul was clearly Kaneki’s story, Tokyo Ghoul √A is not. It is the story of two groups: the people he has left behind and the police who are hunting the ghouls. Unfortunately in the case of his friends, this means little more than episode after episode of angst—especially in the form of Toka, Kaneki’s love interest.
Ken is ultimately defeated and captured by Arima, and with no memories of his past, is given the new identity of Haise Sasaki, member and ace of the Mado Squad, and mentor of the Quinx Squad, a special unit composed of half ghouls like him. Despite having a new identity, Haise still retains some traits from his former self, like the love for reading and the determination to protect his companions with his life.
When pressured to the limit, Haise has glimpses of his former self and unlocks his powers as a ghoul, forcing the CCG to strike him with RC suppressors to calm him down. Haise has an interest in gaining back his memories, but fears that he will lose his current memories with all his new friends and personality if he does.
An iconic image was used to promote the second season of Tokyo Ghoul. It reminded me of an image of Daryl carrying Beth’s dead body that was used to promote a Walking Dead episode. It featured Kaneki carrying a body that is covered in a white sheet. I originally thought that he would be carrying Touka‘s body. We all know now that the body covered in the white sheet is Hide.
The rest of the episode shows us the result of the fight between the CCG and the ghouls. I loved the way they used silence and an acoustic version of the season’s theme song to show us just how terrible things have become. Despair is everywhere. The finale of Tokyo Ghoul: Root A is a visually amazing episode.
