They introduced some new characters in this episode. A ghoul that Rize beat in the first episode came looking for a ghoul called Yamori. He lost his weapon during his fight with Rize and he wants Yamori to make him a new one. Yamori’s wife and kid started spending more time at the cafe where Toka works since they don’t want to disturb Yamori while he works on the weapon, not to mention that it might be dangerous for them. Yamori’s wife’s name is Ryoko and the kid’s name is Hinami.
Also I was right about Hide. He is acting as if he hasn’t heard anything. It might be the best thing he can do for now. I doubt that Kaneki would be willing to sit down and discuss his situation with Hide.
Two officers of CCG, the department that takes care of ghouls, are given permission to investigate the 20th ward, the place where Kanenki and the others are living. Their names are Mado and Amon. They are going around attacking ghouls and killing them. Mado looks kinda crazy but that does make some sense. Imagine the life of two people who have to hunt ghouls. If they make a mistake they will be killed. That kind of life messes with peoples minds.
It is difficult to say who are in the wrong here. In fact no one is in the wrong .The police are trying to protect people by killing ghouls and the ghouls are following their nature and hunting humans to live. Humans and ghouls are doing what they believe should be done. The CCG members think ghouls are trash and the ghouls think that the CCG members are trash. It is hard to say who are the good guys . The ghouls are not just monsters who hunt for fun. They have a human side too. There is also this scene.
I am impressed that he could say something like that with a smile. He likes people but he has to eat them. People will call him a monster and will try to kill them if his identity is revealed. Yet he said something as painful as ‘I like people’ with a smile. There is Toka too. She tries so hard to blend with the human society. She goes to school and studies hard for the tests. Everything she is working so hard for will disappear in an instant if people come to know that she is a ghoul. She still tries and works hard anyway.
The cafe owner wanted Kaneki to get a mask. These masks help hide their identity if they meet any CCG members. There is a shop where the ghouls can get their masks made. He wanted Toka to accompany Kaneki.
We already know what Kaneki’s mask is going to look like. After all we’ve been seeing it in the opening song since the second episode.
The animators are trying not to show blood and gore during some scenes. It is understandable since there are people who would rather not watch blood and gore. But doing so will reduce the impact of the scene. We won’t feel the horror of the situation as much as we are supposed to feel.
See you next time ^^/
