This is going to be a long post.So much happened in the last two episodes and I think fitting it all into one normal post is going to be difficult -.-”
The anime makers are trying to concentrate on showing us the dark side of ghouls at this point. We’ve been watching good ghouls for a while now. So this change is welcome. Let us start with this guy. He is the craziest person we’ve seen so far.
His name is Tsukiama
He got interested in Kaneki because of the way he smelled, he has human’s scent mixed with a ghoul’s scent. He acted nice and lured Kaneki to a place where ghouls kill people and eat them. Kaneki believed him despite Toka’s warning.
This was all it took to fool Kaneki
It was a place where the ghouls watch someone kill their prey and then feast on him
Looking at all that blood I wonder how many people were killed there. They brought in a huge guy to kill Kaneki. His eye turned red during the battle and all the ghouls were surprised to see a one eyed ghoul. One eyed ghouls are supposedly stronger than normal ghouls and none of them had ever seen one before.At this point Kaneki’s already messed up life became even more messed up. Even if he got out of that alive, now there are lots of ghouls out there who know his true identity and would like to eat him. Let us get back to the fight.
Here is the guy who tried to kill Kaneki
Tsukiama saved Kaneki from him, not because he felt sorry for him, but because he didn’t want to share Kaneki’s meat with anyone else. A one-eyed ghoul is supposedly a rare delicacy.He killed that big guy and tried to convince Kaneki that it was all just a joke.
Like anyone is going to buy that -_-
Let us get back to Toka. In these two episodes we saw what a good friend she is. She ate normal human food for her friend Yoriko’s sake and ended up getting sick. Despite all that she didn’t try to get rid of the food Yoriko made for her. She is trying so hard to act like a human. Watching her hurt herself is kinda sad.
This is how she ended up because of it
We also learned that Toka wasn’t always this way. There was a time when she was like any other ghoul and didn’t mind killing people. I wonder what changed her.
Toka in the past
In the fifth episode Kaneki saved Nishiki when he was being attacked by some ghouls. We got to see Nishiki’s past in this episode. Nishiki had a sister he loved. But her identity was discovered by her manager and she was killed. He couldn’t believe in humans ever since then.
Nishiki and his sister
His sister’s death
However he met a girl called Kimi who accepted him even after she discovered that he is a ghoul. It was something he didn’t expect. Kimi was kidnapped by Tsukiama. He did it to blackmail Kaneki and get him to meet him.
Kimi with Kaneki and Nishiki
Tsukiama defeated Nishike and Kaneki with ease. As usual Toka appeared to save the day.
She always manages to be in the right place at the right time
In the next episode we’ll get to see her fight at her full power.I am looking forward to it.
Toka’s kagune (Kagune are those tentacle like things the ghouls use to kill their prey)
Sorry about the long post. I’ll try to make one post per episode from now on.
See you next time ^^/
