According to reports, the makers of Tokyo Ghoul Season 3 has decided to follow the storyline of the manga. This is due to the fact that fans were not very happy with the changes they have made to the story in season 2.
If the reports are true, the upcoming season should show Ken Kaneki with no memory of his past that will result in him having a new identity. The storyline should also be centering on Touka Kirishima who is introduced to college life and the struggles she goes through. It can be remembered that aside from Kirishima's hatred at Kaneko, she is also not well-acquainted to live by human standards.
The writer of the anime revealed that the upcoming season maybe "the darkest and psychologically disillusioning season, as gory details will not be censored." In fact, if the anime series will follow the original storyline of "Tokyo Ghoul," this is the part that gets really bloody.
"Tokyo Ghoul" or also known as "Tokyo Guru" originated as a manga series by Sui Ishida. It was made into a series in the Shueisha's Seinen Manga magazine from September 2011 to 2014. It was also compiled into fourteen volumes of tankobon in August 2014. In the same year, a twelve episode series has been aired in Tokyo MX from July to September. The second season also consisted of 12 episodes and aired in January 2015 to March 2015.
The anime has also been released in North America by Viz Media and has been licensed for streaming and home video viewing by Funimation. In Australia, the rights for the anime was obtained by Madman Entertainment.
By June of 2016, the anime sold more than 18 million copies and will have a live-action movie to be released in 2017.
