Good news for fans who are eagerly awaiting season 3 for Tokyo Ghoul. The next installment of the anime may be coming earlier than expected. Here's everything we know so far.
Rumors about Tokyo Ghoul have been pretty abundant since the conclusion of the anime's second season, the independent Tokyo Ghoul Root A storyline. Recently, however, a number of rumors and speculations have emerged which point to the possibility of Tokyo Ghoul Season 3's release date.
The first clue about the anime's release date emerged after it was announced that the franchise would be releasing a live-action movie centered on the Tokyo Ghoul manga's first arcs. Over the last few years, popular manga that are adapted to live-action movies usually get follow-up anime series.
A huge example of this would be Attack on Titan Season 2, which was announced after its two live-action movies were released. Thus, after the live-action Tokyo Ghoul film gets released, there is a good chance that the anime's third season would finally get announced, as stated by a previous Enstars report.
Another notable factor that points to an upcoming release for Tokyo Ghoul Season 3 is the fact that the source material for the anime, Tokyo Ghoul:re, has managed to cover numerous arcs since the conclusion of the anime's second season. Currently, Tokyo Ghoul:re's story has gone far ahead, and the events which have transpired so far could easily fill another 12-episode run.
Over the last few months, rumors have emerged that the third season of Tokyo Ghoul is already entering the pre-production stage, and that the anime's third season would see a release very soon, according to iTech Post. Considering the progression of Tokyo Ghoul:re and the release of the live-action movie, a late 2017 release date for Tokyo Ghoul Season 3 is definitely plausible.
Tokyo Ghoul has emerged as one of the most notable anime franchises that have emerged in recent years. Featuring a distinctly human story amidst a world filled with flesh-eating ghouls, the anime was able to earn millions of fans across the globe.
