'Tokyo Ghoul' Season 3 News: New Season Due Late 2017, Will Cover Kaneki's Rise To Become King Of Ghouls? [VIDEO]
Tokyo Ghoul is set to become one of the biggest and most anticipated anime releases in recent years. Since the conclusion of its less-than-stellar second season, Tokyo Ghoul Root A, fans of the franchise have been clamoring for a follow-up season.
Tokyo Ghoul Season 3 Release Date
While there has been no concrete information released about the possible release date for Tokyo Ghoul Season 3, speculations are high that the anime would probably be released immediately after the franchise's live-action movie is shown in theaters.
With the live-action movie speculated to be released mid-2017, there is a pretty good chance that Tokyo Ghoul Season 3 would see a late 2017 or early 2018 release.
Tokyo Ghoul Season 3 Title
The Tokyo Ghoul anime adaptation has been known to brand its seasons with a specific name. In the second season, the anime was branded as Tokyo Ghoul Root A. With the third season most probably following the manga, there is a good chance that the anime would be called Tokyo Ghoul:re, in reference to the chapters that will be covered in the Tokyo Ghoul anime's third season.
Tokyo Ghoul:re Highlights
Tokyo Ghoul:re has already featured a lot of material, and if Studio Pierrot is smart enough to stay faithful to the manga adaptation, the producers would have more than enough material to cover another season.
Among these notable events involve the franchise's protagonist, Ken Kaneki, being trained as a ghoul investigator by the man that beat him at the end of Season 2, Kishou Arima. Recent installments of the manga have featured a brutal rematch between the two, which many fans believe is probably the most intense battle in the Tokyo Ghoul franchise to date.
The One-Eyed King and a Possible Tokyo Ghoul Season 4
References to the One-Eyed King have been dropped multiple times over the anime's last two seasons. In the world of Tokyo Ghoul, the One-Eyed King is widely regarded as the most powerful ghoul of the time. After his pivotal rematch with the nigh-invincible Arima, Kaneki declared was regarded as the One-Eyed King.
With Kaneki holding the title of the world's strongest ghoul, the premise of Tokyo Ghoul Season 4 being produced becomes much more realistic. After all, if there's anything that the manga has shown to date, it is that the story of Ken Kaneki is far from being over.
