The "Tokyo Ghoul" Season 3 premiere has been pushed back and many suggest that other anime series are to be blamed. Nevertheless, a positive news has arrived since the much-anticipated anime is reportedly already in the works and will be launched after "One Punch Man" Season 2 returns.
According to Comic Book, the patrons who are looking forward to "Tokyo Ghoul" Season 3 may no longer have to wait since it is positively on its way. As a matter of fact, Viz Media's senior director of sales and marketing Kevin Hamric has stated that "One Punch Man" Season 2 will be released and the "Tokyo Ghoul" Season 3 will arrive shortly after.
This confirmation from Hamric is somewhat good news for the avid viewers who are waiting for the "Tokyo Ghoul" Season 3 since they have agonized for months without any detail when the next season will arrive. The "Tokyo Ghoul" Season 3 has been teased in numerous times and it already came to the point that it was rumored that it will not debut.
It can be remembered that way back in 2015, Funimation has hinted that the "Tokyo Ghoul" Season 3 was scheduled to premiere last year. Nevertheless, the fans only received a new mobile game afterward but their favorite anime was a no show.
In contrary, Oppstrend reported that Hamric's statements have most probably been misunderstood. This was because the executive did not even reveal an exact release date for the "Tokyo Ghoul" Season 3. It was also mentioned that the fans may have come up to a wrong conclusion that "Tokyo Ghoul's" upcoming chapter would be counted in the company's summer releases.
It was also noted that Viz Media itself has disproved these rumors. In fact, the company said that Hamric's announcements may have been miscalculated and that the "Tokyo Ghoul" Season 3 is, in fact, not yet planned to be premiered.
With this, it seems that the said interview with Hamric created some sort of confusion to the avid audiences waiting for the "Tokyo Ghoul" Season 3 to debut. But then, it is hoped that concrete details will soon arise.
