Cast & Credits
For the acting, I seriously want to give a standing ovation to the main cast (Masataka Kubota) for his excellent acting and perfectly portrayed as Kaneki Ken. Why I said that he is perfect as Kaneki because every scene that has Kaneki in it, I can feel the main character's pain, sad, happy, nervous. For those who still not read the manga yet, Kaneki Ken is such a complicated and tragic character yet he brilliantly conveys his emotion as Kaneki Ken who got confused with his own body and the struggles to keep his humanity as a half-ghoul, half human. The other casts also played their character really well.
What makes this film not perfect is the CG. The CG of Kakugan seriously looks great but the CG of Kagune, for some reason there's a time that the Kagune effects look a bit awkward but don't worry, it's not a big deal.
Overall, I enjoyed every part in this movie. Since the first movie already good, I have a high expectation for the sequel and hope they will have more budget for the next film so the CGI will look more awesome and the viewers will more enjoy watching the film.
