What´s one thousand minus seven? This phrase somehow stuck with me after Tokyo Ghoul ended. To be fair, I´m not the biggest Tokyo Ghoul fan around. Sure, I enjoyed it a lot and some particular scenes definitely stuck out more than others but, on the other hand, a lot of it also felt unneccessary and completely irrelevant (the arc with the mother an daugther, for example), and even so, every episode felt a little shonen-ier than the other, I didn´t dislike it, it´s just that it could have been so much more.
Finally, when I accepted the fate of this series, episode 12 rolled around and proved me wrong. Tokyo Ghoul episode 12 headbutted the series to my top 5 anime of that season, if season 2 turns out to be as stylish, bittersweet and beautiful as this final episode, I will be so, so happy.
