'Tokyo Ghoul' Season 3 Air Date & Spoilers: Season 3 May Be Delayed To 2018?
Fans of "Tokyo Ghoul" who are expecting the third season of the anime to premiere later this year may be faced with more disappointment as the anime's release may be pushed back to 2018. This was after earlier rumors that "Tokyo Ghoul Season 3" will be aired this year along with "One Punch Man" was debunked by studio executives.
According to a report by ICV2, Viz Media Senior Director Ken Hamric has earlier stated in an interview that they are working on "One Punch Man" Season 2 and Tokyo Ghoul Season 3. Fans immediately assumed that the two anime installments have been earmarked for release in late 2017 but it turns out that "Tokyo Ghoul" may have to wait longer for its turn no matter how excited the fans are getting.
In a press statement, Viz Media shared that Hamric may have been misquoted by earlier reports since there is no specific timeline for the release of "Tokyo Ghoul" Season 3 just yet. Fans have been waiting for Season 3 since 2016 but have been constantly frustrated with relying on the rumor mill for details about the anime.
According to a report by TV Season Spoilers, delays in the development of "Tokyo Ghoul" Season 3 may stem from the lack of materials to explore for the season. It can also be recalled that "Tokyo Ghoul" Season 2 was not so well received by fans who criticized the season for misusing the strong characters through the use of a weak story.
Fans of "Tokyo Ghoul" were even more surprised when the anime killed off fan favorite character Ken Kaneshi, leaving them wondering whether the negative reaction to Season 2 is prodding animators to do a reboot. Some fan theories suggest that Ken Kaneshi may not be dead and that he will re-emerge in "Tokyo Ghoul" Season 3 as a new character.
