I really hope he dosn't stop here, this ending was like a giant fuck you, where shit happened all over the place and created more questions than answers.

A season 2 announcement is likely going to come from that. However, we don't know if that's the only thing.

So, keep expectations low and we'll see what happens when we get there.

The CCG is a worldwide organization. I doubt that Arima is the only OP investigator in Japan or the whole world.
We never left Tokyo after all so we don't know what's going on outside of that city.

>>114073400
But that's a stupid ass conclusion.
You can clearly see at the last pages that Aogiri tree's using Yoshimura to recreate Owls.

Make sure there will be a lock in case Arima steals it.

They probably won't be as strong as Eto, at least not at first. Arima wasn't necessary for Yoshimura Owl.

It's not, it's a Japanese government agency. there's a ghoul research association based in Germany, the GFG, but it is separate from the CCG. What the rest of the world is like is mostly unknown, but there is apparently some ghoul crime syndicate in China.

Nigga, he was strong as fuck, I admit. But I think he's pretty much done. If there's a 2nd season it'll take over another character, probably Touka trying to get revenge for Kaneki, just like she did with Hanami's Kaa-san.
Or they create a "new" Kaneki with Amon, since it looks like Aogiri took him "hostage" for experimentation.
>>

Why did Hide point him in the direction of Arima? Literally any other route would have been safer. Fucking backstabbing asshole.

All I meant was that they don't need to be Arima to stand a chance, especially since they fill up ranks with fodder anyway. It's also a reason for them to keep Kaneki around instead of just quinque farming him.
>>
>hot and drunk woman is stripping down and basically begging you for dick

Has there ever been a character as pure as Amon before?

>>114074087
Hide knew that Arima was right around the corner.
He wouldn't be so stupid and send his best friend to certain death.
I know that this dude had a plan while doing this. It would be out of his character to act like a retard.
>>
Think of it this way, you were seeing the story through Kaneki's eyes the whole time, since he's dead you can't see anything anymore.
>>
>>114074018
Touka doesn't need to avenge him. He'll be back.

Not really. Otherwise we wouldn't have seen things from the perspective of characters like Amon.
>>
>>114074617
Could also be because he no longer has eyes.
Or a literal reinforcement of what you said, but I don't think he's dead.
>>
>>114075302
Some centipedes are blind.
>>
>>114074617

Story padding. The manga was about Kaneki regardless.
>>
Let your brains chew on this for a while. The last chapter's title seems to be incomplete. The title is [研_], or [Ken _]. Basically, the right kanji is missing and replaced by a space.

One theory is that the title of the sequel's first chapter will be [_X], and then you get the full title as [研X].
>>
>>114075947
There's been speculation on 2ch that the space will be completed for his new name. Mostly variations of training or studying. My favorite's 研修 (training in a service).
>>
>>114076251
Plus it matches with the "give it a name" thing at the end of 143.
>>
Yay! More theories!
>>
>>114076251
Any other neat theories coming out of 2ch?
>>
>>114076601
Ishida put so much hints and so much space for tons of theories with this last chapter.
>>
>>114076708
Nothing that's not already been brought up, really.
>>
>>114076831
Ah, okay. I didn't know how often theories crossed between the two boards.
>>
>>114077428
Fairly often, along with batoto, tumblr, and reddit.
>>
>>114077767
Heh, maybe it's time to branch out while I pass the time until Oct. 11th.
>>
Did the manga end? Holy shit.
I've been pretty busy the last few days, so I didn't know.
>>
>>114078097
Yep, it ended at 143.
>>
>>114077983
The best place to start would probably be batoto's forums. There are some not awful tumblrs if you like or have a high tolerance for fujoshit. Reddit is usually a rehash of here, with very rare new content. Pixiv has some lovely, occasionally predictive art.

Those are my usual ones, but I have a lot of free time to waste.

Guys, Tokyo Ghoul is over. There will be no manga sequel. Look forward to butchered season 2.

Yeah, it'll definitely happen, but not anytime soon. You guys saw how Ishida had everything planed from the beginning for Part 1, so he's probably taking his time researching, planning and thinking about how Part 2 will unfold, he's a meticulous and methodical guy to a fault.

If you really like Tokyo Ghoul, let it rest for a while and let the author have some time for himself and work in peace.

Ghoul Arm Amon sounds like an interesting idea.

Why do people say the manga is better than the anime?

I read up to Ch.60 (where the anime ended), and aside from the censorship, the anime was much better, especially the torture scene and his transformation in his head. Much more dramatic and impactful. Kaneki's VA wasn't half bad.
>>
Am I the only person who thinks that Rize could be the next MC. Kaneki couldn't do it but the original could.
>>
So what happened to Hideyoshi? He got eaten?
>>
>>114090515
The VA was great, only I wish they dont skiped a lot of details. TG diserve at least 18 eps.
>>
>>114090515
I do agree that the torture scene was done better in the anime but I think that people say that (and I am also among those) because the anime felt pretty rushed and barebones. Not only that but the production, while nothing bad, was nothing good either, just regular. Although the anime did have fucking Mamoru Miyano as Tsukiyama, which was fucking excellent.

>>114090803

If there's one thing the Anime pulled off great it was the voice acting in general. Also, Episode 1 was great as fuck too. I kinda like the Amon/Kaneki fight in the anime as well.

Something felt off with the Gourmet episodes though, like it made Ken look like a dumbass for just charging in there alone, along with the other missed details like his training with Touka and Yomo and shit like that.

They also only had his internal monologue thing in the very last episode too.

Yes, you are right about the voice acting and I did quite like the first episode as well. It pulled off some things really well but it skipped a lot of scenes and details. In overall, it wasn't a bad adaption by no means but it just felt rushed, although you'd only know that having read the manga.
Oh yeah, Hinami was a lot cuter in the manga than in the anime too.

We don't really know anything about him. He was on the same level with Yomo last time but who knows how strong he is now. He can be the boss material, but not certainly last unless Ishida pulls a plot twist.. well... Ishida did anyway with the chapter 143.

>>114106707
One of the big things which the anime lacked was detailing character growth for Kaneki. During the manga, you saw much earlier his attempts to change to not "stand by and do nothing".

One example which stands out is the Ghoul Restaurant arc. In the manga, Kaneki didn't walk blindly into an obviously bad situation. He went in order to get information for Itori in exchange for information about Rize.

Furthermore, he didn't run away from Toro-chan, but fought back and even broke his arm utilizing his training with Touka (which was essentially ignored in the anime) and the knowledge acquired from reading his books.

There are plenty more examples and not just ones which apply to Kaneki. It's not shit, but the adaptation made many changes which people feel are for the worse.

Wow. I could kind of understand it when they just showed him getting stabbed the first time or the second time. But how can you still believe in him after all this? Just because Ishida drew a color page with Touka saying she believes in him doesn't mean he's alive. He just wants to see the fans suffer even more, he drew Touka to represent the last Hope of the fans and then crush it. I respect Ishida.
>>
>>114112606
In what way? Kagune from both parents?

No idea. It's never really touched upon so we can only speculate. Presumably all ghouls breed the way humans, which would imply all full ghouls have a pair of ghoul parents, but I'm not sure how that works with regards to adopting kagune from both.
>>

So is the CCG leader the most powerful in the whole universe?

Since Arima can 1v1 Owl, and Arima is lower than CCG old man
>>
>>114117185
I don't think we can conclude that. All we know about the Commissioner's power level was that we was stronger that SS or SSS class ghouls, right? Arima is also stronger than SSS class ghouls. Also we have to remember that the SS and SSS rankings are relatively new, created because of the owl. We so far haven't seen any SSS besides Eto and Yoshimura. We also know that the commissioner has some sense for power levels, because he scouted Arima and Suzy into the force. Whether this is some extraordinary sense like a ghoul's sense of smell, or just the natural intuition of a very powerful human, we don't know yet.
Am I right on this? All this info comes from like two chapters but I forget which ones. But that's all the info we have, anything more is just speculation.
>>
>"Can you fight with all you're got?"
>against the CCG's God of Death
I frankly think that Kaneki had more chance of surviving by trying to escape above with all the investigators, I mean, he defeated all the investigators that were attacking Irimi, a couple more to defeat/run away from wouldn't be too much of a problem. At least less of a problem than dealing with Arima.

Hide is worse than Judas.
>>
>>114074608
He knew that if Kaneki could prove his worth to Arima, Arima wouldn't kill him. That's why he let Kaneki eat [hopefully just a little bit of] him, anon. Hide knew that Arima wouldn't just wipe out a strong ghoul like that without bringing him alive to farm for quinques like Arima. Kaneki was healed, and scratched Arima's face. Hide is love.
>>
>>114117795
Maybe to the first part. It's all an open question, we don't have enough info to conclude. If Kaneki went upstairs Arima would've been up there much sooner. If Kaneki got lucky and escaped, it would've meant the probable demise of Eto and the manager. There was no reason for Kaneki to think Arima was there, Hide's words were the only warning that he wasn't escaping completely free. Once he saw Arima it was too late.

>>114117993
This is currently the main theory for Kaneki not dead. However we don't know for sure the parts about Hide knowing what Arima would do. That's the weakest part of the theory, I think. Hide was in the control system though, so he'd have a chance. Maybe in the beginning of part 2 we will get a flashback of Hide hearing Arima (or other CCG) saying something of that nature.
>>
>>114118271
Of course Kaneki didn't know but Hide should have known. He was together with that guy who was monitoring all the squads. He isn't an idiot, so either he had a plan to save Kaneki or he is worse than Judas.
>>
Since Tokyo Ghoul appeared to be influenced by Kafka's "Metamorphosis", how strong are the similarities throughout it?
>>
>>114119957
It's strong at first because the guy in Metamorphosis turns into a roach/his whole life is in the shitter, but I think Kaneki didn't have it as bad because his fight with Arima showed he still had his human side. Roachdude (already forgot his name, read this in HS), eventually lost all humanity and stayed roach. It's pretty interesting though how at first the monster is Kaneki's ghoul side and then it's the fact he's actually turning into a centipede via kakuja. If Kaneki really is dead though, it'd probably be as pathetic as in Metamorphosis
>>
>>114118271
Second dude you replied to here, I really need to reread this but I'm pretty sure Marude knows that Hide is a lot smarter than he lets on, and probably kept him around for the deskwork because he could be like Alfred in Batman (some helper-type who is smart enough to give valid input/advice). Of course, we won't know unless we get a sequel, but I agree with Hide probably knowing a few CCG members and Arima/maybe what they talk about.
>>
>>114120510
So he was, in a way, saved from becoming exactly like said character by regaining a sense of a balanced existence? That's pretty neat.
>>
Never in my life would I have thought that a power of or relating to centipedes would be cool.
>>
>>114121442
Yes, and it's exactly the fact that in 140 we see him find that balance, that I don't think he's actually dead. He's probably blind or something though
>>
>>114122110
If anything, by changing his fate compared to that of Roachdude, he's broken out of the Metamorphosis mold. I, too, hope he isn't dead but I try to keep a middle-ground in regards to that subject.

For some reason, a part of me thought she was closer to Kaneki's age. I don't know why I think that is, though.

I just checked. Shit Kaneki's only 18, but even if she says so, there's no way Rize is only 18 too.

This does not look like an 18 year old, and her being Kaneki's ghoul mother also makes me feel like she should at least be a little older than him.
>>
>>114126964
There's always the chance that she was lying to him, but there's no way to know that for sure.

It could simply be that her dressing nicely, as well as wearing make-up and glasses makes her look older. When we see her in the image here, >>114124675 , she looks younger when it, I believe, was only a short time before the manga started.

Is it just me or does Ishida's art improve immensely from early chapters to the end ones?

>>114128018
That's a pretty common thing in manga. The mangaka becomes more familiar with the general artstyle and hones his/her craft. Plus I'm sure that as a manga becomes popular, more resources are put into it by the publisher.

Kaneki's whole character development and his relationship with everyone made the manga for me, to the point where that forced ending kinda pissed me off and I want him to come back.

Then again, since is all but confirmed Kaneki is dead and there is a lot of implications for that, I would somehow feel that it would be an asspull for him to come back, so I wouldn't mind if we got another MC.

Due to how much she was able to eat Shinohara thought she was in her early twenties or late teens.

Coffee?

I also have questions about what ghouls who don't want to eat people do. It's too dangerous to pick corpses or even canibalize as shown in the manga.
>>
>>114133542
If they don't have a place like Anteiku, they have to risk corpses or cannibalism, or just accept killing people. Otherwise they probably go blood frenzy until they've eaten, like Kaneki in the beginning. There are so few alternatives that all basically boil down to fighting and killing, I always assumed that's why there are so few peaceful ghouls.
>>
>>114133774
Which is why the stigma against ghouls remains constant. Even the peaceful ghouls have to feed on humans to ultimately survive.
>>
>>114133207
You know, why can't they just farm kakuja armors by feeding them chopped up ghouls? If it is properly contained it's not like its going to be too risky
>>
>>114134068
Because a ghoul becoming a kakuja isn't a guaranteed thing. Not to mention, I don't think they want to risk a ghoul being at full power and possibly becoming stronger or crazy.
>>
How come there is no PETA for ghouls?

I think some human lead org. for ghouls will appear in the next manga.

I mean locking even peaceful ghouls up and making weapons out of them? C'mon.

Also, I found it funny that Ayato thought his dad was weak when he was probably one of the stronger ghouls in the manga.
>>
>>114134248
I would imagine that the general consensus for ghouls isn't a positive one. Aside from the natural fear of a creature which consumes your own kind, many humans rarely see peaceful ghouls as they appear to be in the minority.
>>
>>114134230
I think every ghoul we know cannibalized has gotten a power-up? I can't think of any that explicitly ate ghoul and then nothing happened.
>>
>>114134248
I think Ayato saw him as weak because Arata was a pacifist, and fighting back (against the people who killed his mom) = strength to Ayato.
>>
>>114134230
Imagine though, if they make an another facility stocked with RC gasses and other marvels of technology, I think it would be pretty easy to contain a kakuja ghouls. Also, even if they don't turn into a kakuja, scientists can clean up ghoul corpses from the quinque facility in a pretty efficient way. Win win if you ask me.
>>
>>114134385
Tsukiyama nibbled on ghoul for whatever reason during the Aogiri Raid.

I'm actually surprised he doesn't consume ghoul meat to get stronger. Don't tell me he's too above that, he does a lot of shit that goes against his status as Gourmet.
>>
>>114134385

Uta mentions cannibalization to Kaneki pretty early on, as if it was a common occurance. Seems like kakuja would be more common, and ccg would have more armors, if that were the case.
>>
>>114134385
Yomo has been shown to be stronger than he was in the flashback, and he may or not be a kakuja now.
>>
>>114134385
I think that's only natural that we would only see those who saw the fruits of their labor. Though you do see or hear of a few instances of it.

My statement was based on what I believe Yamori told Kaneki and from some discussions in the CCG. From what Yamori also described, cannibalism does carry a taboo even among ghouls with some not believing that idea that cannibalism works/do not want to risk it.
>>
>>114134665
What, he was still very strong in the present. He just didn't use his kagune and avoids fights.
>>
Guys, you have to eat a lot of fucking ghouls to become a kakuja. Like it almost has to be your main prey.
>>
>>114134780
Please re-read my post again, anon. I said he was stronger than he was in the flashback.
>>
>>114134665
He might be, but we've seen some rather strong ghouls who aren't kakuja such as Shachi, Irimi, and Koma.
>>
>>114134665
The bodies he was collecting consisted entirely of humans.

If he didn't have a kakuja then, he definitely doesn't have one now.
>>
>>114134501
I always forget he's not been eating ghoul. It didn't make sense to me either, but I suppose, from his thinking during the Kanou raid, he thought he was strong enough. He's probably rethinking that right now.

>>114134593
>>114134679
Could also be an indication of Uta's proclivities. The Ghoul Restaurant guys were pretty sick and they balked at cannibalism. Then again, cannibalism was also mentioned when Nishio was attacked, if I remember correctly. I basically agree-- from what we've been told, cannibalism is common and kakuja is not, but it's not really been shown on-screen. Misinformation, maybe?
>>
>>114134890
I know, but hasn't it been explicitly said by Uta that Yomo does commit cannibalism?
>>
>>114134501
He tied to eat Touka and Ayato in the past. Most likely there aren't many interesting ghouls that he wants to eat.
>>
>>114134949
Yes.
He also believed in such a shitty rumor.
>>
>>114134679
Cannabalism drives most ghouls crazy, as stated by Tsukiyama.

Also, Yamori and Kaneki were never stable to begin with so it was even worse in their cases.
>>
>>114134881
It's possible, but it seemed that Yoshimura took him in after he almost died at Arima's hands. While he could possibly have done so on his own, I don't know if Yoshimura would encourage it.
>>
>>114134881
Oh, sorry, anon-kun.
>>
Did we ever get the reason why ghoul exist/comes from?Disease? "human evolution"? Bio weapon? I cant remember reading it in the manga.
>>
Let's also not forget that ghouls taste horrible to other ghouls. While some would be driven by the possibility of power or simply to survive (if it's the only food source), most ghouls likely would not choose to eat other ghouls if given the choice.
>>
>>114134932
It seems odd to me that Tsukiyama goes on a spiel about survival of the fittest but doesn't really make any efforts to do so. Even though eating ghouls is not gourmet, the only thing he's interested in having right now is Kaneki, so it shouldn't matter.
>>
You have to eat a lot of ghouls to build up Kakuja.

Most cannibalism is not done to that degree.
>>
>>114135035
Considering he was a kakuja himself, I'd say he wasn't exactly against it.
It felt like he was raising Yomo as his successor of sorts to go against V/CCG.
So I'm sure if he was eating Aogiri or V members that Yoshimura wouldn't exactly complain.

I don't think there is much chance she was lying to him, or atleast their age isn't that far apart. She's at least confirmed to be younger than Banjou.
It's just a matter of Rize looking more mature and Kaneki still looking like he's 16.
>>
>>114135094
With how scientific TG tries to be we will probably get a biological explanation if the manga ever start back up.

But it will be brief, the story is about the characters and doesn't really concern itself with the origins of ghouls which actually seem to be going extinct to a degree.

Look all I know is that I'll never get the ShotaKenxRize doujin I desperately need.

We have to remember that Yoshimura in the past was a very different person than most know him to be. He was a killer of humans and ghouls alike and did his best to remain strong.

I just think he would advise against such extreme methods if possible. You know, in a very "I've been there, don't make the same mistakes I did" sort of way.

I think there's more to Ayato than we know. The manager handles each person who's come into his care surprising well with individual teaching specifically towards that person.
I wouldn't be surprised if it comes out that Ayato was asked by Yoshimura to go to Aogiri to protect Touka in that fashion or to keep tabs on Aogiri.

Also isn't it quite odd that Yoshimura/Yomo found dead bodies yet instantly knew that Aogiri was behind it?
Weren't those the same bodies Ayato left behind?
Maybe he left them to let Yoshimura know.

>There are people in this thread right now who think Touka isn't best girl.
>>
>>114135484
Not letting a kill go to waste is a little bit different of a scenario. In talking about him being a kakuja, we're talking about him having consumed a large amount of ghouls, often with intention.

As we've seen with Kaneki, the process of becoming even a half-kakuja required months of eating only ghouls. What I was saying is that Yoshimura would discourage probably anyone from doing that (again, having done that in his past).
>>
>>114135461
>Though he didn't seem to even try with Ayato
It seemed to me that Ayato didn't want any part of Yoshimura's ways. There's really only so much you can do when a person is adamant about not joining your cause.
>>
>>114135665
>Kaneki half-killed Ayato for doing as the Manager asked
Lends a slightly different mood to that scene.

I'm not quite sold that he's under orders, but Yoshimura undoubtedly knew about Ayato and Touka's relationship. He likely had some idea what Ayato would do and that he wouldn't accept kindness. I think he actually said that at one point, didn't he?
>>
>>114135810
Uta said in the flashback that Yomo was eating ghouls. There's not a lot of time between that and Yomo joining Yoshimura, but he may have eaten quite a bit before then.
>>
>>114135988
I'm not sure.
I don't really remember Yoshimura ever really talking about Ayato, it'd have to be a one panel offhand kind of statement.
>>
>>114136097
Doing a bit of calculation.
Yomo started to do his cannibalization to grow stronger sometime after his sister was killed by Arima.
Arima was 22 when he appeared in the flashback but was 16 when he killed Yomo's sister.

That's a 6 year time period to feast.
>>
>>114135702
Bad luck for Touka exist Rize and Akira and Itori (damn b*tch)
>>
>>114136113
Maybe I'm mistaking it for one of his other speeches. I seem to recall him saying something similar, but it wasn't about Ayato, I don't think. Never mind.

At least when he's convincing Touka to join Anteiku in 71, he seems aware that Ayato is a lost cause for some reason or another and doesn't ever focus on him at all.
>>
>>114136343
Yet, no Kakuja.

I think he just wasn't eating enough ghouls back then.
>>
>>114136097
>Uta said in the flashback that Yomo was eating ghouls.
I read that section differently. The line from the translation I read stated "He raised havoc at the eating locations with cannibalism".

It sounded to me that he simply caused trouble rather than participated. That's not to say he didn't, as his goal was to acquire the strength to kill Arima.

It's the only plan which makes sense given that he was seemingly thrust into Arima's presence. Prove that you are a cut above the rest and maybe, just maybe, you'll make a strong enough impression.

I still find it funny that Owl couldn't even touch the guy.
>>
>>114139197
It seems to me like Arima fights according to the opponents rhythm of sorts.
He seemed to be counting when he was fighting owl to know exactly when to counter.

Maybe Kaneki didn't have such a rhythm which threw him off.
>>
>>114139197
Owl as in ETO doesn't seem all that strong, she just jumped in a bunch of tired CCGmen and went all "SURPRISE, MOTHERFUCKERS" l believe even 100% special classes and all those unsung heroes (Hirako, Suzuya) could take her out, she barely breathe the same air as Arima and she already started melting, then again, Not doing well against Arima is not a reliable measure of power for obvious reasons.
>>
>>114139320
A battle of wits, perhaps? Kaneki's battle strength has always been his use of his intelligence and he displayed a use of said intelligence in his (uphill) battle with Arima.

I'd say that's probably what elicited the "You're good" response.
>>
>>114139585
She's clearly stronger than everyone that isn't Arima. They haven't been able to damage her at all during any battle against her - evidence shows that both of your examples (Hirako and Suzuya) just get minced. It's just that Arima is so ridiculously high above literally everything else in the series that he can steamroll her himself.
>>
>>114139758
There's no doubt that Arima sets the bar ridiculously high. Though, I think that Kaneki demonstrated that the key to beating Arima rests in making intelligent responses.

Everyone else who fights Arima seems to do so without planning or thinking and he always predicts that and effectively counters.
>>
>>114139758

Juuzou would definitely lose to Eto, but at that point he had already lost a leg to Yoshimura
>>
>>114139890
That's just due to him making a rash decision.
If he acted more reserved I think he could've held his own against Eto for a while at least.

He's been shown to be a very effective fighter. Hell he was pretty much able to 1v1 Kanekipede while everyone else with the exception of Amon and Arima have been completely destroyed.

>>114139758
To be fair, they were tired and injured from their fight with Yoshimura where Eto was likely fresh. That's a major advantage for her.

I'm not sure what that has to do with explaining why the other investigators weren't able to put up much of a fight against Eto.

It's not like I'm guessing that Shinohara and the others were tired or hurt, because we saw it. I should also clarify that I'm not saying they would win even at 100%, just put up some fighting chance that didn't rely on Arima to, well, do anything.

Why is Arima so fucking overpowered

He's just a human

I have faith in Ishida, he will make a story good no matter how much asspulls he does, in fact, I'm loving the Penisman comic too.

The things that were changed were shit, but it was worth watching to me for the voice acting and soundtrack, which were fucking great.

I just marathoned the series yesterday, and all I have to say is that there wasn't enough fucking Rize, and not enough Mado (daughter). They did amazing things to my penis.
