Man that episode of Tokyo Ghoul had an amazing change of pace. It became super psychological and then climaxed with what everyone had been waiting for. I think it's one of those episodes that will be remembered as "that episode" in the same way as "that episode" in Madoka, Gurren Lagann, and Attack on Titan.
It sounds like the game is essentially done so Nomura doesn't need to be there for the polish. The trailer for FFXV looks like the natural evolution of Kingdom Hearts so I'm super hyped about. Now that he can focus on KHIII we might get that game in the next 3 years.
Just to be clear I think Nomura is great. Not sure where all the hate comes from.
