"Tokyo Ghoul" Season 3 To Follow Events On The Manga Series

With the manga series of "Tokyo Ghoul" getting many positive feedbacks, the adaptation of it to the anime series has gained a lot more pressure. The anime series is already bound to return for its third season, with the second season ending in a battle between Ken Kaneki and Arima.

Reports claim that the third season of the anime series will follow the events that transpired in the manga series, wherein Ken Kaneki will then be crowned and declared as the One-Eyed King. There have also been allegations that when Kaneki wins the battle, he will presume another identity to hide from the ghouls who have held him captive, which has led to a change of his point of view.

There still hasn't been any confirmation yet as to when the third season of "Tokyo Ghoul" will return and what the storyline could be. The fans of the series are still anticipating for its comeback.
