This episode could be one of the best or one of the worst depending on how you see the latest development. Toka wanted revenge for Ryoko’s death and went after the CCG members.
He was just an ordinary member of CCG who wanted to help humans. He did a desk job and probably never killed a ghoul in his entire life.
This was probably the stupidest thing Toka could have done. Now the CCG members will want to hunt all the ghouls in her ward and make them pay for his death. She just killed an innocent man and put her entire ward in danger.This is also the best thing about Tokyo Ghoul. There are no ‘good’ people in the anime. Humans kill ghouls as if they are animals and ghouls kill humans without a second thought. Tokyo Ghoul is full of people who only see what they want to see. They close their eyes to everything else.
She almost got Amon too but Mado materialized out of nowhere and saved him. That is the part I dislike about this anime. The main characters always find themselves in the right place at the right time. The fight between Mado and Toka was satisfactory though. Mado overpowered Toka. He had a lot of experience with ghouls and he knew Toka’s weakness. She had to retreat in the end. It wouldn’t have made sense if this guy with lots of experience lost to a teenage girl.
What is more interesting is the fact that Toka knew that she did something wrong. She knew it wasn’t right but she did it anyway. All she managed to do was make the CCG members get mad at her and now Amon wants to kill her.
Toka plans to kill Mado too. She laid some sort of trap for him but Mado already saw through her. He had been dealing with ghouls all his life after all.
For once I want Toka to fail. She is killing innocent people in the name of revenge. Of course it is okay for her to feel bad for Hinami but that is no reason to start killing people randomly. I don’t want to see Mado die either. He is one of the characters who make the show interesting.
We’ll get to see what is going to happen between those two in the next episode.
See you next time ^^/
