Two years after the events of Tokyo Ghoul the city has become a safer place for humans, with many of the resident ghouls hiding in the shadows after their war with the CCG. However, Aogiri Tree is still at large, operating under the cover of night. A new team of doves called the “Quinx”, a group of hybrid ghouls, are formed to take care of messes the rest of the CCG cannot handle. Much to their squad leader Haise Sasaki’s chagrin, the group still has a lot to learn about teamwork. While on a hunt for a ghoul called Torso who has been murdering women around the city an S-class ghoul uses the opportunity to strike. Will Sasaki be able to protect his squad without giving into his previous self and the dark and terrible power that once consumed him?
I’ll be honest; the Winter season of anime is usually one of the least exciting ones, with a lot of the big names saving themselves for Spring/Autumn. However, there are always a few gems, and this season was no exception with some standout hits that I never would have expected. I wanted to take a moment to get some words on paper about what I watched, what surprised me and what my favourites were. To make it fair, I’ll be including shows from last season that have just ended, but not shows I’m watching now that won’t end until a later season.
