The season roughly adapts the second half of the Tokyo Ghoul manga. Unlike the first season, however, Tokyo Ghoul √A does not directly adapt everything from the manga. Rather, it mixes in the manga's events and overall plotline with an anime original story written by the manga author Sui Ishida. The anime follows Ken Kaneki after he joins Aogiri Tree, as the group begins their battle against the CCG, who are trying to exterminate the ghoul organization.
The score is composed by Yutaka Yamada, who also produced the score for the first season. The opening theme for the anime is "Munou" (無能, Munō, transl. "Incompetence") by österreich, and the ending theme is "Kisetsu wa Tsugitsugi Shinde Iku" (季節は次々死んでいく, transl. "The Seasons Die Out, One After Another") by amazarashi.
