Why did Tokyo ghoul second season not follow manga?

    Filler, I'm assuming.

    As in the manga was behind the anime, so they just threw some new stuff in. The same happened with Naruto, Inuyasha, One-Piece... It mostly happens with Shounen because that's typically the most successful demographic. If you were to stop the series for a couple years waiting for the manga to catch up that would be time that could be used to make more money, so they create anime-original content to fill that void.
