Don't let this distract you from the fact that the second season will Only have 12 episodes. 12 episodes to adapt...121 chapters!

Has it really been confirmed that the second season will get to the end of the manga? I was hoping for three seasons at least.

Yes, it's confirmed that it will cover the end of the manga, although I'm not sure how many eps it'll be. Normally we would expect 3 more seasons but this is Pierrot we're talking about, so nah.

A gentle reminder that even manga readers thought Ghoul's plot greatly declined in quality until the end.

Ishida himself all but admitted in his final afterwords he was burnt out and stressed from working non-stop on Ghoul without breaks, which likely affected his output quality.

My life has revolved around chasing the deadline, week after week.
I felt that if I took a break I wouldn’t be able to bring myself to draw again, so I refused to give myself a break. Now that the series has ended, I’m finally living a life where I haven’t had a deadline looming over me for the first time in 7 years.

...I took on impossible amounts of work to try to push myself.
I cast away all sorts of things from my life, and poured all of my time into work.
I think it was because I was trying to get closer to Kaneki who’s been subjected to torture.
I’ve developed complications in my body.
I was scared at first. But after seeing all sorts of symptoms show up every few months, I resigned myself to the fact that this was the kind of body I had.
The most striking part to me was that I lost my sense of taste.
No matter what I ate, everything would taste the same. Even though the symptoms were different, I felt like I’d turned into a ghoul.
I was surprised by to what extent the human spirit is tied to the body.
There may be some readers who are disappointed by this, but I haven’t thought of drawing Tokyo Ghoul itself as fun. I hate working.

What does that have to do with anything? The manga was great and even if the quality declined a bit towards the end, it won't change the fact that they're shortening 4 Arcs into 12 episodes.

If this series were to ever get an anime adaptation, it'll truly be a tragedy...

Points for those that get the reference.

Everyone’s complaining about the story getting truncated (which is fair).

But I’m just glad TK’s BACK!

The number of episodes is the announcement I'm waiting to see. History of the series would suggest 12 episodes, but they didn't cover all that much in the last season, and it's not like they aren't aware of how far away they are from adapting the remaining material. I'm hoping that will mean more episodes.
