“Tokyo Ghoul” no doubt had been one of the most anticipated anime this year. Yet, as fans had been hyped to know that its Season 3 finally comes to light, the company responsible for the anime had debunked the announcement.
According to ANN, Viz Media senior director of sales and marketing, Kevin Hamric was interviewed by ICv2. Hamric was then asked about the recent changes and shows that are coming for fans. “Nothing that's been recently released, but One-Punch Man is coming back on with season two,” he responded.
“There's going to be another season of Tokyo Ghoul coming shortly. Later in the year, those would be the bigger releases on the anime side,” he added. Hence, “Tokyo Ghoul” fans rejoice upon reading the news. Yet, a drastic turn of events happened quickly as Viz Media released a statement that the claim by Hamric was false and that no “Tokyo Ghoul” is scheduled.
Nonetheless, was then mentioned that Hamric mistook “Tokyo Ghoul” for getting another season, yet it is really “My Hero Academia” getting a new one. In which, “My Hero Academia” Season 2 is slated for an April 1 release. Other teasers and hints about the fantasy horror anime was made in the previous months and years as well according to reports.
Comic Book then noted that last 2015, Funimation had conveyed to fans that a “Tokyo Ghoul” season 3 anime is coming finally next 2016. Yet, disappointed fans resulted as no anime was released and just a mobile game.
Regarding the plot of “Tokyo Ghoul” Season 3, it's still isn’t cleared yet whether the anime will follow the manga since the issue on changes made in its Season 2. Season 3 is then expected to pick up where it left off wherein Kaneki Ken surrenders to the CCG due to his best friend’s death.
Kaneki is then shown in Sui Ishida’s manga to be tortured by CCG’s Reaper, Arima Kishou. The brutal torture then makes Kaneki lose his memory. Arima then gives Kaneki a new life as an Associate Special Class Ghoul Investigator and will form a squad. Further spoilers include that Arima is the “One-Eyed King” before Kaneki.
