you will love this guaranteed
18 February 2015 | by KileyannaroseSee all my reviews

Tokyo ghoul is possibly my favorite anime out there. Root A (season 2) is out now, every Thursday at 11am. (TV-MA) You will love this if you love action/horror/gore/dark shows/animes. I consider this if you are a big fan of animes like Attack on Titan, etc. Find gore disturbing? If you really want to watch this anime, I consider watching the censored version. It is very hard to find the uncensored, which I couldn't find at all.

PARENTAL GUIDE: Gore/violence: censored: 9/10 Gore/violence: uncensored: 10/10 Sex/nudity: censored: 4/10 Sex/nudity: uncensored: 6/10 Drugs/profanity: censored/uncensored: 3/10 Language: censored: 7/10 Language: uncensored: 8/10
