My dad works for Ishida's dog's childhood friend's music store and he told me that
Spoiler in 5 minutes.
>posting the uncleaned version
also stop making fucking threads until we have spoilers you goddamned retards.
There is evidence that shows Mutuski wants to be a man and even asked ccg to make it come true, stop trans shaming and making trans people of colour like Mutuski seem non existent
Eto lived her life in a area known to be 24th ward. It's underground. A "nest", some parts are impossible to raid due to kakuja walls and during CCG operations, they "stirred" something that shouldn't have seen the light of day.
Ghouls from there live off by eating each other, prostitution and or drug dealing, weapons and doing illegal jobs for people. Eto had a pretty fucked up life or saw pretty fucked up things. Either way, she developed a half-kakuja when she was still a kid, meaning she was already eating rather viciously, by the time she came of breeding age, she was already regarded as an urban legend until, by some unknown reason, she, alone, raided CCG headquarters with no one to stop her until Arima, a teen at that time, fought with her. The fight was so brutal that two stores were utterly destroyed before Arima delivered a killing blow. Even today, it's not clear why Eto came to raid the CCG headquarters or why she was utterly enraged.
So, it's still a mystery.
Mutsuki is a woman traumatized by a rape done upon her, when she was but a child. The ghoul at hand scarred her body and physically traumatized her the enough for her to hide her gender.
Until someone take her by force and forces her to feel pleasure in a sexual manner, she will remain frigid and asexual.
She needs someone who knows how to properly heal a raped woman in bed.
Now even if you wanted to argue she was trans, this part is absolutely wrong. We all already know it was because of shitty scans making her skin look darker than it was.
yes i know this is bait
They both sustained serious injuries. This might even have been before he got Arata.
>it's not clear why Eto came to raid the CCG headquarters or why she was utterly enraged
It's fucking obviously because of her mother's diary, she might found it in the 24th ward, maybe the diary wasn't with her until she found it and read it and knew her new destiny. I can imagine she was like walking by some old hut with a long tron cape where her ''adopted parents'' raised her.
Because of that she wen't immediately after CCG's headquarters all angry, rampaging, until Eto met Arima.
No he not she stop opressing victimised males like Mutuski who clearly wants to be trans you shitlords. Mutsuki has said himself he doesn't want to be a woman and dresses like a man is clearly a trans person of colour judging by the darker skin tone and has homosexual feelings for Urie
Shut up, faggot, these threads aren't about spoilers.
They're for discussing Tokyo Ghoul, like last thread we found conclusive evidence that IS scans are shit and Kaneki wasn't raped.
There is no spoiler. We told you to not make more threads. Can you ever stop being such a massive faggot?
Based Kuroiwa Sr. Literally the best CCG investigator
Shirazu broke all 5 frames and sacrificed himself to stop Noro
If he was talking about Kaneki, there would've been no need for his thoughts to be all cryptic like that. At the very least, he was talking about someone that wasn't Kaneki.
>this isn't an afro
>the blacked out area is his head and brains smashed on the ground
How do you even kill this guy
Shut up! I wanna be right for once god dammit!
Wait, where the fuck did people get the idea that the entire 24th ward was hidden?
Yes, there was a CCG operation that concerned rc cell walls and a large underground complex, but that was within the 24th ward. It wasn't the 24th ward itself. The whole ward system is set up by the CCG in the first place.
Those spoilers were believable though, the Eto thing caught some people out but it shouldn't have surprised them that much.
Shirazu isn't going to die though, and Kaneki is not going to fight Eto.
>OP posting bullshit like this was his blog
>S-spoilers in 5 mi-minutes,g-guys!!
Yeah, he surely isn't the same faggot from the last thread.
>Shirazu getting a power-up
Disgusting. Thank god he got rekt'd by Noro.
I don't think she's dead either but that's hardly reason to believe that she's 100% alive, given that everything happened so quickly and mass confusion
shirazu wouldn't have had time to glance over at mutsuki whether she was alive or dead
I don't understand why you want all these plot armored trash shits to stays alive. Do you want happy ending with qs and haise where they live together in a big happy house? One of them at least have to be dead.
>implying he isn't the same cancer who has been killing Shokugeki no Souma threads
>implying he isn't actually shitposting and baiting in HxH threads
I bet you just come here to derail Tokyo Ghoul:re threads, shitposter-kun
Yes I do. The filename makes it funnier.
Shirazu breaking through all his frames could force Noro to retreat, but it could fuck him over in other ways.
Urie used F4 and he lost his damn mind. Imagine what F5 would do to one of the qs.
Depends on the fight. Beginning of the arc was excellent, up to the second invasion. Now it's 50/50. Mayuri's fight (well, fights) was great, Shunsui's is not, Kenpachi's was mediocre. Aizen's still got stuff to do though, which hopefully involves overthrowing the shit main villain.
So Eto planned after a certain point all the events that led to his ghoulification, since she was obsessed with him ever since they met as children.
I can actually see this comming.
...I want to see the spoilers so badly.
I used to think the fact that Kaneki was there when Rize got crushed by Souta was horrible luck on his part. But if that was actually planned by Eto, oh shit.
But for that to be true, Eto and the Clowns would have to be working together.
Indeed. Eto will obviously die since she is an "antagonist". I can easily see Kaneki surviving until the end of this sequel. However he might never get with Touka or die in a cool way (Arima kills him) like he fucking wants.
Some Anon a couple of threads ago made a theory connecting the fact that Eto said, "You sure do love taking a hit, dont you?" to Kaneki, and said that Eto knew about Kaneki's childhood because he used to live near ward 24 with his mother.
It was horrible luck on his part. Their target was Rize, not Kaneki. Since Rize ended up being kidnapped by Kanou and Aogiri kept searching for Kanou all the way until the lab arc I doubt Eto is responsible for what happened to Kaneki.
>I doubt Eto is responsible for what happened to Kaneki
Are you sure? We always can go further. FURTHER.
isn't it because Haise couldn't dodge her hit in chapter 53, not because of before?
If she knew about this, she would have said "You have always loved taking a hit, haven't you?"
Etofags are crazy as usual.
Man, I miss the old days, when instead of wild speculation, we were given solid, hard evidence, like Eto dropping phrases similar to the titles of Takatsuki Sen's books before the big reveal.
Great. More angst. Even Guts who had suffered 10000x more is trying to forget the pain but this goy just can't get enough of it. I'm saying he has a constant chub everytime he gets facebashed.
With the way things are turning out in this manga, anything can be a fucking reference to something or other. It's just a theory as to why she may be interested, but I didn't think it would be taken this seriously.
Now you are just being stupid and delusional. Aogirir have always been searching for Kanou and Rize and only Souta could have known their location. If Eto was working with the Clowns, she wouldn't have sent people going around to find him like Yamori or Sachi.
Tatara also had to torture a nurse to find out his location.
Why would all of them go through those troubles if Eto was working with the Clowns from the beginning?
In a Kaneki Eto, pairing how the fuck would it even work? Everything we know about her points that everyone is just her plaything. How would Kaneki even manage to get Eto to see him as both a partner and an equal?
>a ghoul better than a Special Class Investigator
>rate him S
lmao Tokyo Ghoul had a bit of power creep going on I see. Nowadays S-rank ghouls are borderline fodder, Naki gets his shit kicked in every time he appears.
And there's no way an S-rank ever had a chance against any of the Special Class Investigators.
It was either Kaneki, Nishiki, or Furuta.
I don't think Furuta ever actually went to the University as a student though, it doesn't match his position in the CCG if you had it on a timeline; CCG academy takes too long for him to be a regular student, and then an investigator 3 years later.
Isn't the current theory that he was just spying on people close to Kaneki (Touka in this case).
>Eto wanted someone exactly like herself to love her
>Someone who could understand her painful upbringing
>Started writing the books to partially satisfy her fantasies
>Decided to make it become a reality
>Has had her eyes on Kaneki for a while
>Decides to mold him into the perfect boyfriend
>Told Kanou of this when they teamed up
>Kanou turns Kankei into a artificial one-eyed ghoul at her request
>Kaneki goes through all the suffering while Eto watches him from the shadows
>The reason she wraps herself in bandages is because she can't contain her wetness
>The reason she hates Arima is because he got in her way of developing Kaneki to her liking
>Has to work her ass off to make him regain his memories
>Succeeds in doing so and can now continue with her plans
I swear, if this is the reason why she's doing all this then she's the best fucking Yandere girlfriend you could ask for.
>current theory that he was just spying on people close to Kaneki
Touka didn't attend Yamii at that time. She only had visit there on Nishiki's wimp. I think he was under cover for CCG in the university cause Arima was sent to high school once.
I swear Etofags. All those delusion.
Oh wow it's amazing how clear picture are when ISIS scans aren't releasing them, I totally thought Mutsuki's arm and leg in that photo were just both of her arms, but she's farther away than I thought.
I would say he is one step from her mentality, and NO I do not think that she created him to be this way, but I do have to admit that they are strikingly similar in mentality.
Don't get me wrong, I do like Eto as a character but I wouldn't say I'm an Etofag. What I said here >>133775527 is something I could see her doing considering her mindset and rationality is degrading over time. She seems desperate or at least interested in finding something to fill the emptiness of her childhood, even if her methods are severely fucked up.
Actually everything points to her trying to drag him down to "her level". As a one-eyed ghoul she was hoping that the horrors of the world would break him like they broke her, so she's been trying to manipulate and keep track of him so that he'll snap and become eviiiiil like her.
She wants to justify her actions through the tragedy of another person in a similar situation as her.
Her knowing Kaneki as a child ala Elfen Lied is retarded though, there's no way she orchestrated everything with such a fine degree up to this point. Kaneki happened to be with Rize, and of course ended up being tampered with by Kanou and becoming a One-Eyed Ghoul, which led to Eto's interest.
After Kaneki left he drowned his sorrows in vidya.
Now he's lost all of his bulk and has no hygene, so he wears a bag over his head. Resembling a scarecrow, and only able to speak in playstation symbols, Banjou finally got recognized by CCG-senpai and was rated as a C-rank ghoul.
That G-shaped mustache + earring is looking suspicious.
I can tell half of your shit is fanfiction tier becase she was interested in Amon first. The one eye ghoul plan from Kanou was not even a consideration because if Eto has been working with Kanou, she wouldn't have searched for him half of TG manga.
She and Aogiri only found his location later after getting his nurse.
You stupid fuck, get your shipping shit out of here.
hair and body build doesn't match up, nor does anything else suggest a link. Even if Souta was undercover as Banjou to meet up with Kaneki at Aogiri, Souta's conversation with Nico wouldn't make sense, since he says stuff along the lines of "haven't seen you in a while, so this is what you were doing? We tried getting in touch with you".
Her orchestrating everything is stretching it.
I think her meeting Kaneki as kids, inspiring her to write books, forgetting about him, and finding out he's been turned into a one-eyed ghoul by Kanou years later and is all like "Aw shit son" is more plausible than her being behind every single event up until now.
If that were true, you'd think she'd have tried to kill Hide at one point in his human life to make him feel truly miserable like her.
>Not him, but I can see this happening
Yeah, in your head, and I respect that.
There have been other one-eyes, like the twins, and Eto wasn't nearly into them as she was into Kaneki.
Of course, that could just be because Kaneki was the first one she found.
> Eto wasn't nearly into them as she was into Kaneki.
Kaneki was the first one she found. She later toyed with the twins ( seen in Kanou lab), then Amon ( who was later turned into Floppy but he failed so she wanted to get rid of him), and then Seidou ( she personally tortured him). Kaneki is not the only one Eto was interested in.
I'm pretty sure it is just because he was the first successful experiment.
And she did show at least some interest in the twins, since she psychologically attacked them at Kanou's lab before tearing out Banjou's ribs.
The twins just weren't as interesting to her as the main character of a tragedy as Kaneki is.
And all other one-eyed ghouls since then have been created directly via her authorization.
>ui reminscing about his dea waifu
>q' getting fucked up below
>kaneki getting fucked up above
Is he going to be one of those strong characters that never do anything?
Fuck at least Matsuri can he cae in contact with owl.
>Tilts head round
>See's it as the letter "G"
I've never read a fanfiction in my life you fucking dolt, let alone creating one. If I did I'd diagnose myself with fucking cancer.
>She was interested in Amon long before him
We still don't know for how long for she's bee interested in both Ken and Amon. She's definetly showed interest in both of them, but we've yet to see just how deeply rooted they've been involved in her plans
>She wouldn't of searched for him for half of the TG manga
She comes across as someone who likes to pick at her food, someone who likes to push and keep on pushing until they reach their breaking point. She's pushed Ken's buttons in a number of ways by using other people all the while keeping her presence in his life in anonymity.
Tokyo Ghoul's story is like a jigsaw you can't complete as you only get a single piece each week, it's only when you've got enough of those pieces you realize they link together and everyone's screaming Ishida at the top of their lungs for not realizing sooner.
His autismo dodge against Eto at the end of the original manga sapped him of all of his strength. He hasn't been able to fight since, but can't tell anyone so he just pretends like he's strong and important while either bribing his extermination targets into surrender (daddy Tsukiyama) or delaying his arrival long enough that the target leaves (SIX CHAPTERS IN THE STAIRCASE).
If her and Kaneki has any possible relation other than both trying to kill one another then Kaneki will need to find away to show her that something she never found in other people. He is one of her only chances at somewhat of a redemption. At the most I would see them as allies against V but never becoming romantically involved, that is what Touka and Kaneki have to themselves.
Time for some quality discussion.
Are ghouls able to feed on human semen? If yes, how does it taste to them?
And more important, what about the human digestive system? Can ghouls eat human guts?
Because technically, they would be eating shit, which is made out of human food which they cant eat.
Or is this converted food aka shit okay for ghouls? Because if thats the case, they could literally eat shit without dying or killing anyone.
I want answeres, Ishida.
>Are ghouls able to feed on human semen?

protip anon: All the meat us humans eat is covered in trace amounts of shit too.
>Or is this converted food aka shit okay for ghouls?
Ghouls can eat literally anything, even if most things make them want to barf. Though only things with human cells in it gives them sustenance.
>Because if that's the case, they could literally eat shit without dying or killing anyone.
As long as the shit was from someone eating a human or ghoul, sure, they could live on that.
>I want answeres, Ishida.
Ghouls need food that contain human or ghoul cells in it to survive. But there's nothing to stop them from eating anything else, including shit, for fun.
The most important question is, wouldn't female ghouls technically be virgins forever since their hymen always grows back? People could pop the cherry over and over again and since this is kinda painful, sex must be very shitty for female ghouls.
>Ghouls need food that contain human or ghoul cells in it to survive
I think its more about the RC cells. Thats the reason why their Kagune gets stronger and bigger if they eat other ghouls. You know, because ghouls have more RC cells than humans.
Animals and plants most likely contain zero RC cells.
That's probably why there's a relatively low ghoul birthrate, since nothing suggests they have a lower chance of pregnancy and don't need contraceptives like >>133777181 suggests.
Yeah, it's why Touka has been a jobber so far. She was stronger than Tsukiyama after a bite of Kaneki, but could barely materialize her kagune with only Yoriko's food in her system.
I don't want to sound rude but please go back to >>>/fanfiction.net/ and write your headcanons there.
Finally someone who can use his head. Although I'd say that Eto was interested in Kaneki before she took an interest in Amon; since she wondered why a CCG investigator would allow a ghoul (a dangerous half kakuja) to escape.
I was hoping Haise would try going out on a date with Touka, and he'd order a sandwich or some shit for her to eat and just sit there watching her eat it as Touka does her best not to throw up all over him.
Bonus points if he tries to pretend to be normal, and they're both eating food which makes them want to vomit, all to maintain some vaneer of normalcy.
But I won't get that now.
Goddammit Ishida, it could at least have been an omake if you had them dating.
No their food needs to be saturated with RC cells for them to not get sick of it, eating food without RC does not only taste bad for them, but also makes them sick and weakens them.
Apparently Ghouls and Humans are the only beings possesing RC cells in the TG world.
It is highly likely that Ghouls developed out of canibals.
Many canibalistic tribes belief eating another gives them their strength.
Probably at a saturation point in some canibals a new organ formed that was cable to sustain more cells.
At this point they likley became dependant on sustaining a regularily intake of RC cells and to reject normal food to force the upkeep they changed so that normal food gets rejected as it is not saturated with RC cells.
This would explain why ghouls age like humans, and have an equal level of intelligience and can mate with humans.
I wonder if once we get Kaneki back, we'll have a Haise tulpa?
And when Kaneki meets Touka again he'll do shit like come out and tell Kaneki to fuck her brains out, sasirious style.
>manga about suffering
>massive and sadistic autistic mangaka with suicide fetish
>protagonist dating the female lead character
Have you learned nothing?
Look what happened when Kaneki had a date the last time. His whole life turned into even more shit.
>Red Child Cells
>Ghouls can drink coffee
>tfw a cannibalistic tribe of redskin indians became the first ghouls
>their blood with the high amount of RC cells went dripped into the ground and fused with coffee beans
>these coffee beans where imported into the whole world later on
My eyes are finally open.
But that's the beauty of it, they'd still be suffering.
Ishida could be like: "What, you thought their date would be all fun and games? No, fuck no. Look at them, they're just suffering their best not to vomit all over each other. Fuck you."
It would be thematically consistent.
I think this would be cute, but think of Haise's position.
CCG would be investigating the fuck out of Touka if they ever caught wind their Ghoul Ghoul investigator was dating. They'd think Haise had decided to supplement his diet or some shit.
Nah, they'd be breeding the shit out of the investigator ghoul. Put his family on all sorts of CCG programs and really, really encourage his children to come work for them.
But none of that is going to happen, Kaneki will be a legend and eventually he will die like a martyr.
>implying it isn't a dicktease
>implying when this arc ends we won't get a chapter like 31.5 and everything and everyone is ok again
>implying kaneki will ever return to us
geez you guys never learn,do you?
Since we still have no spoilers, who do you think will be doing the Tokyo Ghoul S3 OP and ED?
So far we've had:
>TK of Ling Toshite Sigure
>People in the Box
Look what Ishida did to us.
We are reading a manga to see the main character suffer and we are complaining that he isn't suffering enough. We all want Haise to become Kaneki again so that he suffers even more.
What have we become? Instead of wishing Haise a happy life full of love, we want to fuck him up even more.
I wouldn't be surprised if Kaneki never comes back and Ishida tells us this message through a character of this manga. Some shit like "Look at you, all you want is to cause tragedy and pain."
He already gave us that message by having Nico call Roma selfish for wanting Kaneki to come back and start suffering again.
Speaking of Roma, what the hell is she up to? I'd have thought she'd have tried to bring him back if she wants him to suffer so badly.
We saw in chapter 53 he remembers his mother beating the shit out of him, presumably one of his earliet childhood memories. We also saw he remembers fighting Arima underground, his last memory as Kaneki.
If he remembers everything between we have Kaneki back.
Kaneki is fucked no matter where he goes. The clowns commented on this, the Re staff commented on this.
Kaneki will always be miserable. The only times we've seen him happy is when he's been with Anteiku, or with Akira and the Qs. However depending on which Kaneki comes back we'll either have a stoic badass, or a sniveling teenage ball of angst.
It was mediocre at best, I can understand why normalfags liked it, and although Tokyo Ghoul deserved much better, S1 didn't offend my existence or anything.
Root A on the other hand.
KanekixSuffering is the OTP
KanekixTouka is 2nd place
He was absolutely irrelevant garbage tier in S2.
>that feeling when you realize Kaneki met Tsukiyama for the first time on the rooftop after Touka wrecked him in the church and he totally doesn't give a fuck.
Pierrot destroyed so much with this shitty anime.
Ishida placed too many S+ rank Ghouls in, and needed to make it believable that humans were actually able to do anything.
Besides, Eto might have been the start of a lot of stronger ghouls coming out of the wood works, making investigator git gud.
It's weird, but I can't help but think that - once Mutsuki can really use her Kagune - the big twist will involve her getting in touch with her feminine side, wearing dresses and so on. You know, realizing that she's happy with who she is.
You just watch. It's going to happen - For instance, being a lipstick lesbian is a phase for girls to grow out of.
Only this one.
Haise don't deserve a happy ending for being such a jobber.
Are you a newfag by any chance? We're all clowns. We realized about it when we wanted more suffering and /a/ was tired of Haise's CCG shit family and faggotry.
She probably thought his Kaneki was back when she heard him screaming in Auction arc. Poor Roma.
We still get weaker ghouls, like Kanae at one point, the taxi ghoul and Torso, nutcracker's twitchy bodyguard, the bukaku quinque ghoul and ghoul duo hired by Kanae to off the Qs.
They don't really pose much of a threat to Haise is all.
It does appear to be genetic, or at least susceptible to outside factors. Stress can cause rapid graying, but it also comes with balding and Kaneki is not seen balding. So something or other triggered Kaneki's change and it wasn't the jokes the centipede told him.
It might be a specific trait of his that allows him to change appearance to some extent, like Uta. Only he's not conscious of it.
>He was absolutely irrelevant garbage tier in S2.
It's upsetting to know that Banjou only got less then a minute of screentime in S2 compared to his huge role in the manga.
Fair enough, and Ishida's power creep is still astronomically better than anything you'd find in a shounen manga at least, it's just really hard to believe he had the whole power scale planned out in his head when he says a ghoul is ranked S for killing a Special Class investigator. And then bumped up to SS for destroying a CCG headquarters? Shachi has been the consistent power ceiling for the SS-rank tier, and there's no way he'd be able to just storm a CCG head office solo.
Remember that they're all S-rated (or "A+" rated for Shousei and Hooguro) as well.
A-rank ghouls are literal fodder at this point.
Man, I dunno. Hinami's very attractive now, but it still feels pretty weird to me. Like, there's not THAT much of an age difference, but Kaneki knew her when she was an adorable kid. That feels a bit odd, considering.
Oh man can you people just shut the fuck up already? Since that chapter came out everyone is talking like the ending is already settled and it'll be muh tragedy here and muh tragedy everyone will die there. You're all some hardcore pessimistic motherfuckers you know that? How about we take off our tragedy goggles for at least one thread?
My reasoning is Hinami goes to lengths to save Kaneki/Haise - see Auction arc.
I liked their chemistry a lot more than Touka, who has been admittedly pretty useless for awhile now.
>Ishida has made a lot of Hairu art
He made them because he didn't want to piss the people who actually liked her when she died.
Same as nutcracker, but with nutcracker at least one.
I bet Eto will get a lot of arts from ishida soon enough.
Because Kaneki joins Aogiri instead of forming his own group in the anime and so Banjou and Tsukiyama get the shaft (especially Tsukiyama who also gets his character fucked with) in terms of screentime. Their only scene interacting in season 2 of the anime was the rooftop scene where Tsukiyama tries to stop Kaneki except it's completely out of nowhere since unlike in the manga they haven't interacted at all to justify this emotional outburst from Tsukiyama.
And to top it all off they IIRC turned it into a comedy scene too.
>tfw Noro turns out to be a qt waifu/10 next chapter
You should watch it for the same reason people watch Master of Martial Hearts or Mars of Destruction or Garzey's Wing.
Except Root A's awfulness can only be FULLY appreciated if you've read the manga.
Nearly nothing makes sense or is even attempted to be explained, the plot points are entirely nonsensical, expecting logical character motivations is a pipe dream, and the worst part is nothing in the anime was even original in the slightest, except possibly one scene with Tatara and a guy at Cochlea, though that might have been from other material like the 4koma etc.
Root A is just Studio Perriot recieving the entirety of the second half of the manga, taking a butcher's cleaver to it, and then taping about 30% of the pieces back together with no rhyme or reason, then saying "look, a finished coherent anime!"
well jason thought noro was a chick
>Noro's true form is of a cute girl
Ishida, please don't do it.
The Queen cards in Tokyo Ghoul Trump are all strong female characters like Touka, Akira, and Eto.
The fourth Queen is Noro, interpret the hints as you will.
I'd totally buy the idea that Eto can only grant her kagune to females.
Correct, Root A pretended he didn't exist.
At least for anime-onlyfags his role in season 1 was also greatly reduced, so he was forgotten easier by viewers.
No he's not.
Why are the /a/nonymous translations so much better than THS in the original TG? It's a bit jarring reading THS after the /a/nonymous translation as it flows so much better and is much more articulate. Why aren't they(s/he?) translating RE.
Is it possible for a ghoul or a one eyed ghoul to exist in this real world of ours?
Frankly, my big problem is that Root A's big plot twist (Kaneki joining Aogiri) is never fully explored. I mean, holy shit, this is a REALLY BIG THING. It's like Luke Skywalker going - at the end of Empire - "Okay, guys. It turns out that Vader's my dad. I'm going to work with him to see how we can change the Empire from within, and to understand his side of the Force."
But we never SEE anything about Aogiri. He's hanging with god damn super villains now, for fuck's sake. How does he interact with Chinese guy, Noro, the girl who's living proof that miscegenation is bad and all the other smooth criminals? More, what *did* he do during his time in Aogiri? Not just the prison break, but all the day-to-day murder and shit?
It's worth noting that Kaneki has never killed a human before. How does he get along with a group that thinks humans are delicious meaty treats? Does no-one think "Hey, Eyepatch is pretty tough, but I've never actually seen him kill anyone. Weird, huh?"
More - No-one comes to Kaneki's help in the final battle! You'd think that he would go "Ayato, my man, my buddy - Remember when they turned your dad into a suit of armor? How would you like to go with me and fuck those niggas up?" and so on. In fact, the final episodes have no connection whatsoever to the rest of the series. Kaneki is just strolling around out in the open, when he should be rollin' deep.
It's never even explained WHY Kaneki joins Aogiri either.
We can only assume it's to somehow protect those he cares about, but I can't fathom how he would reach the conclusion that joining Aogiri would accomplish that. Nor does it try at all to appease my suspension of disbelief that after Kaneki breaks free, kills Jason and beats the shit out of Ayato, that all the Aogiri execs. welcome him into the fold with open arms.
Technically speaking, he doesn't even beat the shit out of Ayato in Root A. He just knees him in the ballsack. But that kick must have gone right to Ayato's heart, because Ayato is his best buddy right afterward.
I'm personally surprised that we don't at least have some mind-games with Eto. Exactly what was Kaneki trying to accomplish, here?
Try to enter it without prior knowledge, it's amazing how little is explained. Like, Kanou is never mentioned at all, but the twins show up unexplained and have their fight with Juuzou before disappearing for the rest of the season, shit like that.
Well, too bad for them.
I like cute girls but I don't want Noro to be one, he's like the only serious character -If you can call a walking quinque "character"- along with Tatara in Aogiri.
I'm not even sure what Juuzou is doing in the anime. The show's incomprehensible if you haven't read the manga. There's no apparent narrative thread; the only real plot is in the last few episodes.
I already read the manga but hearing shit like that makes me think that this anon>>133779937 is right. I'll probably enjoy seeing how badly they fuck up.
Do they atleast have Kaneki and Arima fight?
Do you have a link to the draft, I've heard it's pretty good.
No surprise that the trainwreck is all from Perriot's meddling though, I remember the dark days after the anime released and before the draft leaked where the only information we had was promo info stating that Ishida would be supervising the script and storyboard for the anime, but we got Root A as it is anyway.
It's useless to question the nonsense that was Root A.
Absolutely nothing in there made sense. Pierrot just tried to sell this garbage with a low quality shounen concept, edge and fujo shit.
>Do they atleast have Kaneki and Arima fight?
Prepare for the BEST final episode of any anime ever, anon.
If only Ishida went to Madhouse instead..
>do they at least have Kaneki Arima fight
Oh boy this shit was the cherry on the top.
Its ends with Kaneki looking at Arima, then everything goes black, we get a shot of Touka and her :Re caffee and thats it.
>the only serious character
>along with Tatara
So you pretty much ignore the fact that Eto is also serious?
You can't even admit that you are this fucking stupid? Do you think it's going to change everything if noro turns out to be a girl? Girls can be serious too
Was he doing anything constructive towards that end? You know:
> "Heeyyyyyy guys. Since we're all pals now, when do I get to meet our leader? You know, since we're all ghouls here?"
Or was Kaneki thinking "Man, I do love me some urban terrorism. Yep, dressing like a fetish model and living in the sewers with cannibal monsters is a-m-a-z-i-n-g." the entire time?
No, the circumstances are completely different. Arima does fight Owl. It's actually not a bad fight, but they ran out of budget REALLY hard at that point - Arima's yaoi chin becomes a force that cannot be stopped.
It's a shame, because I really liked the desperate berserker fury of his fight with Arima.
Seriously, look at that!
Sounds like I'm in for a ride.
Searching for episode 1 now.
watched both seasons, read from the start, got up to somewhere around 32 chapters, stopped there because I couldn't handle re watching everything again
but kaneki forgot who he is and only just remembered in the latest chapter yes?
I've got the notes of a person summarising the draft.
And here's the draft pictures.
Still not right, but this is roughly how it'd sit.
Noro's hands are kinda male looking though, the shoulders too. Though it wouldn't affect the plot much, if Noro is a girl, that fucker's a tall one. Noro is taller than Tatara I believe.
I heard in Ishida's draft Kaneki was supposed to die together with Hide in Anteiku. If that's true then Pierrot probably fucked everything up on purpose because they want to keep milking that cash cow.
Kaneki is the Queen of hearts, so is he a female as well? I still think Noro might be a man. I hope he's a stronk ghoul who can BTFO top-tier ghouls and half-ghouls.
And to shit on the anime even more, here's what Amon looks like in his final fight with Kaneki.
>that fucking :Re sign
God damnit that made me so mad.
After all that horseshit and Perriot has the NERVE to bait S3 :Re adaptation, un-fucking-believable.
No he wasn't working toward that goal in the anime since killing the OEK was Ishida's Draft-only material, I'd be surprised to hear the OEK was even mentioned in Root A.
What are the chances that Ishida only chose Studio Perriot because they have the same name as the Clown gang?
Usually characters with masks are characters we have already seen.
At first i thought it was Shachi but that wouldn't make sense.
We havent seen Kanekis father yet, so i guess thats off the list, too. Who else could it be?
Someone from a flashback?
Start from Chapter 50, it's the beginning of the Aogiri arc with Banjou entering Anteiku. It's the part where the anime really started cutting a bunch of stuff out, so there's plenty of new stuff when Kaneki finally gets to Aogiri, the Jason and Ayato fights are MUCH better, and from there on it's basically all new material.
The colors for the Quinque usually looked pretty retarded, I'm afraid. Like when they were suiting up in basically magic Gantz suits and fighting the enemy with fluorescent whips.
I always thought Quinques should look nasty as hell. Like "I'm gonna cut you so bad, you're gonna wish I didn't cut you."
he doesnt do anything in the actual anime but he spys on eto and tatara discussing OEK in ishida's drafts
*Tatara and Eto are looking down on the city/town*
Tatara: That idiot… (I’m assuming they are talking about Naki) Can we use him? Unlike Yamori he’s not smart so we let him be until now
Eto: Hmm, I think he’ll give us his best. It is for Yamori-san after all
T: …. The more pieces the One-Eyed King has at his disposal, the better, I see
E: Aogiri Tree will grow bigger and bigger. As if to break through the bleak clouds and breathe a lungful of fresh air.
T: We’ll want a few more pieces before we start the plan though
Kaneki: ….. *eavesdropping*
It's Kaneki and Rize together on the Queen of Hearts, and that's just because Rize only started really becoming a fleshed out character once Kaneki went white-haired, AKA the version of Kaneki featured on the card.
It's representing Rize as Kaneki's tulpa rather her real body in Yomo's sex dungeon, which is why Kaneki's on the card in the first place.
>You will never watch a faithful adaptation made by Madhouse
I totally forgot he didn't equip an Arata suit in the anime.
>fucking super fast ghoul stronger than me
>can I have some armor to survive his onslaught?
>nah he's a Monster Hunter weapon for you to heave around, the ghoul looks like an idiot so instead of dodging he'll probably just meet your attacks head-on dramatically
>the characters are the true appeal of the show
>so I butchered and/or watered them all down into shallow archetypes or nonsensical messes with no understandable motivations
Well technically they could still save the :Re anime by fucking adapting it 1:1.
So we could all pretend that s1 and s2 never happened and just go along with s3.
But we're talking about Studio Pierrot, so fuck it.
they probably did but we'll probably know more if they release the second part of Ishida's drafts in another book they even hinted that the CCG found out about the two owls even earlier then they did in the manga
>>so I butchered and/or watered them all down into shallow archetypes or nonsensical messes with no understandable motivations
He only did that to tsukiyama and Kaneki. The rest were quite close to their manga counterparts.
So how do you like your Eto?
It wouldn't work out since animeonlyfags would be left completely in the dust and not understand anything at all.
You're also banking on Studio Pierrot acting nothing like Studio Pierrot.
I think the worst part was that in the tg root A trailer he had arata on
