When you ask any action anime lover to list their favorite anime, chances are most of them will list ‘Tokyo Ghoul’. ‘Tokyo Ghoul’ is one of my favorite anime. The premise is just great but its implementation is even better. The series takes place in Tokyo where creatures whom people dub Ghoul exist in human society. These creatures feed on human flesh and are hard to detect since they can easily disguise themselves as humans.
The protagonist of the anime is Ken Kaneki who, after being attacked by a ghoul he was on a date with, ends up in a hospital where the doctors transplant the ghoul’s organs in him. This makes Kaneki a human-ghoul hybrid. The anime series revolves around him and other ghouls as they try to survive in a world which wants them dead. So far, there have been four main seasons in the series. Since I have not yet seen the fourth season, I will be restricting myself to the first three here. So, here’s the list of top ‘Tokyo Ghoul’ episodes. Don’t forget to mention your favorite episodes in the comments.
6. Season 3 Episode 12, Daybreak: Beautiful Dream
The last episode of the third season is quite heavy on action and violence. We see Matsuri Washuu learning the fact that most ghouls are gone now as they have been taken care of by the CCG. The One-Eyed Owl attacks his helicopter. She then attacks Sasaki while the latter is busy engaging Tsukiyama and Kanae. Shuu then tells Kanae to attack Sasaki and he does after which Sasaki ends up entering his subconsciousness where Kaneki mocks him. Sasaki later chokes Kaneki, asking him to die. He accepts his past, decides to stops dreaming and tears Kanae’s hand off himself.
Elsewhere, Urie finds Shirazu. The latter is mortally wounded. Urie assures him that Sasaki will be coming soon. The Quinx squad panic and want to save him but Urie tells them that the reward for killing an SS-ghoul will bring money and fame which will go to Shirazu. Shirazu then succumbs to his wounds and dies, much to everyone’s despair. We then see Eto (Owl) fighting Sasaki. The latter tells Eto that Yoshimura wanted to save her but he has no desire to save a piece of trash. This enrages Eto and she attacks Sasaki, who is then able to gain higher ground and he impales Eto’s kakuja kagune.
Later, Eto confesses her love for Sasaki as she licks her blood off his eye. Sasaki then bisects her body and her upper half falls down. When the squad reaches the location, they see Sasaki consuming Owl’s kakuja. The latter tells them that he was exhausted and needed it. Urie accuses him of not coming to save Shirazu, to which he replies that Urie is at fault since she is weak. He also tells them that he has found a connection between Rose and the Aogiri Tree. Later, we see the Aogiri tree attacking the vehicle containing investigators’ corpses. They steal Shirazu’s corpse, after which the scene cuts to the graveyard where we see everyone mourning the death of the investigators as Urie stares into the distance.
