I saw a preview for this series earlier this week. An action series by Studio Pierrot with well animated fights? I'll be there. I might even break my wait till it's done rule. Pierrot does good to amazing work when they want to and judging by the preview, it looks like they want to with this series.

@Low:

I forgot to reply. I find myself falling for Toka. I like her design a lot for some reason. Don't forget to upload these images in the anime series' gallery.

@sickVisionz:

You have a special rule. You are more faithful to it than me. I have a special rule, not to read manga or watch any anime series on pirated site. I had to break it for Knights of Sidonia. I wasn't big fan of Netflix, and the date is in July. I couldn't wait. I was more of a HULU and Crunchyroll person.

Speaking of animated fights, this spring season had some good action shows with some great animated fights: Chaika - The Coffin Princess, Black Bullet, and Blade & Soul. Gonzo animated Blade & Soul, but Marshal and I notice the animation tends to go down in later episodes.

Am I the only one who see's this when they see the eye patch dude from this show? I think it's the eye patch + the weird tie/bowtie thing.

Post by Low (1,379 posts) See mini bio Level 11

@sickVisionz: The eye patch was first explored, as far as I know, in Air Gear. The character name is Agito.

Since then, I have seen many characters with eye patches. Heck, that eye patch and the one Kaneki uses are practically the same.

@takashichea: Added. Well, Toka's would be my second favourite. :) Too bad my favourite is not the main character.

@takashichea: Breaking news I guess. Funimation sure doesn't waste time around. It's gotten Simulcast and home video rights for Tokyo Ghoul. You can read about it at: http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2014-06-08/funimation-acquires-tokyo-ghoul-street-fighter-assassin-fist/.75328

Oh and one more image

@Low:

I already added the FUNimation trailer last night as well as the simulcast information to the anime series page. I just forgot to comment in the discussion.

Pilot was something else to watch while eating lunch let me tell ya.

The pilot is sure to increase the birth rate in Japan! As it will cause more people to go on dates.. eh maybe not. Ahem. Well it has solid animation, great design , illustration wise its very solid. Story wise its a variation on vampires. An since vampires are so last year now they are ghouls. Looks like they are playing it similar to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ghoul definition.

Feel sorry for vegans watching this. But it does have some shades of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vampire:_The_Masquerade as there is a ruling council sorta thing.

Just seen the episode. This one looks to be a keeper for me this season with the rather shocking and violent developments with Kaneki.

Okay what happened to that kid was probably one of the worst things that can happen to a guy.

So far the first episode got me interested so I will follow this anime weekly.

Post by Bigheart711 (4,093 posts) See mini bio Level 21

I'm interested as well after seeing the first episode. This was one of a few series that I considered doing episodic reviews after careful consideration.
