>it's Based Bro Naki has to suck Fuccboi dick chapter
I want to see Kaneki shove his dick in Rize in front of Furuta.
>i want to fuck in front of furuta
Rize and Kaneki confirmed to fuck in front of Furuta.
Kaneki will go see Rize when he feels like seeing Rize again. Also he might need to question her about V and the Sunlit Garden since she has all the info on them.
>Fairy Tail just got released instead of Monday
>TG still isn't
Etoken is my favorite ship. I love love hate relationships like that. And i mean furuta and rize are the same in that way i guess but weve hardly ever seen rize and i cant stand furuta and weve never seen them really interact aside from as children. Plus rize doesn't really give a fuck about furuta, so it comes down to one pair has a male yandere and one pair has a female yandere. The answer to which is superior is quite obvious.
>le ishida string of fate symbolism
I think more of a long ass fight with furuta, starting eto vs furuta like in the yoshimura vs ccg fight in the original tokyo ghoul but this time kaneki reaching them in time
And final battle kaneki vs furuta
Eto/Kaneki is OK but /a/ doubts it'll happen somehow. Ishida already made his main couple anyway.
Furuta/Rize seems to be funny and it will be entertaining because Furuta will do his best to get Rize's love but she never gave/gives a fuck about him. Also, Ishida can/cannot make this a "canon" pairing throughout the story
>tfw patiently waiting for Itori to appear
Because he has mommy issues and needs the approval of older women with mother like tendencies.
I'm surprised Isda didn't give Kaneki an semi-Oedipus complex with Akira.
But they know each other since childhood and Furuta is literally insane for her.
Eto only lick Kaneki's eye and says "i love you" wich was very forced and don´t make any sense.
Realistically, what are the chances of this ship not becoming canon?
I honestly believe akira is in a coma because ishida has no idea what to do with her.
>she wakes up and goes down to meet everyone
>naki rages and kills her
>she goes down to meet everyone
>she realizes that touka/ayato are rabbit and trys to kill them
That's pretty good, even though her tits aren't this big.
We don't even know for sure if Rize stopped giving a fuck about Furuta, that's just how he interpreted it. I won't be surprised if she did, just saying we haven't seen her side and they were obviously close as kids.
It's not outright stated, but if you look at that little chart of the Washuu Furuta pulled last chapter, it can be assumed they're half-siblings. Same father, different mother.
It's not in the least forced. When Eto told him that she was so find of him because they are totally the same was not a surprise at all. Since Eto and Kaneki's connection was forshadowed in the first chapter from part 1.
I was more surprised about how she licked his eye.
That's interesting. I think it's obvious they weren't raised to look at each other how average siblings do, so even though it's technically incest, I don't think it has the same emotional/psychological weight that incest usually has for people.
Yeah. That and the fact incest was even normalized in their environment (Furuta states Tsuneyoshi was going to rape Rize even though Tsuneyoshi is her father) it just... wasn't discouraged.
True, if she didn't care about him, she would have eaten him instead of playing around and hugging him. Even if it was not love, it is at least camaraderie.
I think Furuta being in the Garden was what made him impossible for Rize to reach out, so she had to move on.
But afterall, Rize was a selfish person who didn't pay attention to anyone, even the one who genuinely cared about her like Shachi.
I want to know Rize pov and how she will change.
Touka already looked after a child for ~6 years while being in poverty and only a child herself, so I have some faith in her abilities. Hinami also seems well-adjusted enough to be a good parent.
Touka seems like she could be a mother, albeit would probably get mad too easily to properly control a rebellious kid.
Eto, for all her craziness, seems like she'd be a very protective mother because of her past, trying to make sure her kid wouldn't get the childhood she had.
Rize would probably try to eat her child.
Hinami would be a plainly sweet mother, albeit a bit too naive and probably too trusting.
Akira might be a bit unhinged too, but would probably be a great mom. Her father was unhinged to, but he was a good dad to her.
Roma doesn't seem like she'd have any remorse or love for her child and might just treat it as a playtoy.
Itori would probably be negligent as a mother.
Miza would probably just be a good. She essentially already is for Naki.
Kurona I have no idea about. She seemed entirely insane on the island, but when she was talking to Kaneki, it seemed she was fairly okay. Probably would be chaotic, could be a good mother sometimes but then have sudden violent outbursts.
Why the fuck would you post the shitty tumblr version?
Reminder that Nishiki x Touka is the OTP.
Kaneki and Touka only call each other by their given names.
Whereas Nishiki and Touka have given each other nicknames.
I recognise this fanart. Nice job on colouring.
Actually pretty shittily done and not very clean but thanks. Would've been cleaner if my photoshop wasn't fucked up and I wasn't too lazy to restart it.
With the hair as it was, it was too easy to not do, given that it was already fairly curly.
Roma is kinda in the lime light now, Itori HAS to be making a return with all the clown shit, Hinami is out of jail. I'm 3/5 for my favourite girls right now, so hopefully by 116 I can be 5/5 before one of them, probably Roma, dies.
Doesn't look all that shitty, at least without zooming in, though hair ends are a bit off. The thigh high stockings I did look kinda bad too, since they're blurry at the ends. I did them in SAI.
They do argue like an angry couple.
Itori - a clown gave info about medical doctor -> Kaneki fought with Naki -> Kaneki tried to find the medical doctor.
Nico - a clown gave info about medical doctor -> Kaneki fought Naki -> Kaneki tried to find the medical doctor.
I doubt sales will be low, but going back and reading Tsukiyama arc vs Cochlea, the difference is pretty massive. You can tell Ishida was feeling really fucking inspired during the Tsukiyama arc, especially during the climax. Not to mention all the bonus art and poems and shit he was putting out. Just haven't been getting that energy at all in the last year. He must have burnt himself out, it's no wonder.
Ishida's art is constantly changing, there really is no way to tell unless he releases an official databook.
>saiko keeps getting smaller
>Hinami becomes a different person every so often
>Eto booty changing
>kaneki goes from well built to twink
>demon ape's nose increased in size
I have a rather impressive collection of cute Etos I've amassed over the years.
Guys, I'm gonna be honest here. It's been like a year or two since I've had any real idea who belongs to which faction, what anyone's aims are or really what the hell is going on in this manga anymore. Characters keep showing up and the narrative seems to assume i should know who they are.
I'm so fucking lost.
>So I guess its another of sen takatsuki legacies
Stop being so fucking ambiguous ishida goddamit
>Doesn't that hurt?
>It does :)
Thank god, our boy is still an M-type.
>haha remember when I had issues? Those were rude times, right, Banjou-san and Nishiki-san?
Kaneki was never buff, he's just ripped as fuck. During his fight with Arima it was either fanservice, or he was wearing some sort of protection under his battle suit. I'm glad he's back to normal, huge muscles look grotesque with his body type.
> Beat her black and blue, or violate her, I couldn't care less.
Fucking stone cold. Poor Roma, always getting the shit end of the stick.
>but he is going up against... the tokyo ghoul
I know you're shitposting but if that's what you got out of that you're legitimately retarded.
Kaneki was buff, but he lost his gains from stockpiling and eating for 6 months in his fight against Arima where he had to constantly regen his limbs to keep up. He even says near the end that he's running low on materials he can use.
So he's back to fuccboi mode now after using all his gains to beat Arima.
>Americans try to use the metric system.jpeg
my fucking sides
No, he didn't. Ishida is just lazy as fuck with his art.
>Get Kaneki dick
>not make fun of it for its small size and make him sniff her shoes
Meh, maybe if it's Itori. Roma is more someone who acts really tough when she's in power, but when someone lords it over her, she'll probably kiss their feet and beg for dick.
>no Eto, Rize, Amon, Marude, Itori, or Hide this chapter
Why not both? She's probably a sadomasochist. Up to bully and to be bullied.
That's assuming that her death isn't already confirmed or at least strongly implied in Ishida's eyes. In that context it's just a passing solemn thought about a recently deceased notable character. Imagine the same situation but with Nishiki making an off-hand comment about Arima instead.
>implying that she's gonna do any bullying with Kaneki "strongest ghoul on earth" Ken straddled over her
She had problems with fucking Nishitty. Kaneki has never not kicked Nishiki's ass.
Only time she ever bullied Kaneki was when he was literally half the city away from her getting raped by Arima's IXA and going fucking insane as a spear drilled into his skull.
Look at the context of every major death in Tokyi Ghoul. Fuck, look within the very same few chapters at the other side, Arima, and then compare it to Eto. That's pretty much confirmation that she's still alive if anything, but it's still very much in the air right now.
>yfw the white suits start calling Kaneki big bro after this
I'd die under Kaneki every day, if you know what I mean.
Weaker than he was when he fought Arima, but maybe about as strong as when he fought Eto. He's not even using his kagune so it's hard to get a good estimate, but his physical strength is decent. Not to the level that he's leaving craters and denting steel with his punches and kicks though.
>Weaker than he was when he fought Arima
There is literally nothing wrong with being a twink
Do people not see the panel where he looks huge in this ch? Or are they just ignoring it? It's just ishidas inconsistent art, like in this ch kaneki looks as tall as tsukiyama but in the ch where they're at re he looks like a manlet. And you're really basing power levels off of this, wow.
>Do people not see the panel where he looks huge in this ch?
He only looks 'huge' when he's wearing his oversized coat.
No the one where hes got his kagune out, he looks just as big as when he fought arima, also there were plenty of panels where he looked skinny vs arima. Just an inconsistent art style.
Actually no, Kaneki had thicker arms and legs when he fought Arima. Although him slimming down can be blamed on the fact that those are not the same arms and legs he had when he fought Arima.
>Kanekifags still believe he's stronger then Arima
>in a fight where neither were fighting to kill each other
Tell me how he's so much bigger here as opposed to the panel where kaneki is in a muscle shirt and has his kagune out. What is it about inconsistent art style don't you get? And are you still judging his overall power off of this?
Arima was stopping just short of killing him. If Kaneki had truly given up, he was going to kill him. Kaneki on the other hand was trying his best to not even hurt Arima and just disarm him.
>If Kaneki had truly given up, he was going to kill him.
Nah, if Arima was fighting seriously, he would've gone for the head immediately like in part one. He never had any real intention of killing him. He even states it at the end.
I think Ken might be stronger now that he's accepted his ghoul side. but yeah basing it on the fact that Arima killed himself when they were both not even trying much is dumb.
Fuck off. He was going for very important but non-lethal points in order to push Kaneki into a corner. He was still fighting at max efficiency, he just didn't want to kill Kaneki yet in hopes that he would maybe stop being such a wuss.
Then near the end, he said that Kaneki was incorrigible. He was essentially read to kill him then.
Seriously, stop this rabid Arimawanking for your own good.
Ok so you said yourself how neither were aiming to kill the other, and kaneki defeated arima in a fight where they weren't trying to kill the other and wantedto spare arima. What's your point?
>kaneki defeated arima in a fight
He didn't defeat him though. Because Arima didn't go in with the intention to kill, he prolonged the fight and Kaneki wore the Quinques down to a point where Arima had no means to fight back.
If Arima had 100 more quinques, the fight would still be continuing.
He doesn't even need that. Arima was hardly being serious about killing Kaneki since he didn't go for the brain. If he did, he would've finished him off before using that many Quinques.
Quinques are part of their strength and are earned, you can't just say oh if he had 100 more, thats like saying oh if this person had unlimited stamina they could beat this other person. Arimas quinques have always been the strongest and make him even stronger. It's like kanekis kagunes, you cant just say what if he had more.
You Arimafags don't realize the same goes for Kaneki?
The whole reason he didn't go for the kill is because he knew Kaneki was holding back and tried to force him into not holding back anymore.
It's not some kind of one-sided thing where Kaneki was going all out and Arima was not. In fact, Arima was way more ruthless than Kaneki who was carefully about even touching Arima, whereas Arima in turn had no problems hacking Kaneki apart.
Arima was so done with Kaneki's bullshit.
Quinques wear down while Kaneki's kagune is endless.
Since Arima was never serious about killing Kaneki, he knew that if he didn't finish him off quickly, his weapons would've broken eventually. This was all part of his plan to have himself killed.
Otherwise, we would've had a repeat of part one.
The point remains that it's not a fight between one Kaneki who does everything to win and an Arima who is being gentle and has a huge handicap because of that.
Both of them didn't go for the kill, but one of them had a lot more opportunity because he could freely cut off limbs and stab their opponent through anywhere but the head.
This part basically proves that Arima could easily kill Ken even with a broken Quinque if he wanted to.
The same doesn't apply for kekneki, kaneki was going all out and wanted to kill him until he actually broke his quinque and then he decided he wouldn't kill him whereas we know arima was going easy on him and wanted to let him win.
>oh my god i can't regenerate anymore
>Hide tulpa happens
>muh white hair
>suddenly regenerates again
Kaneki was fucking suicidal and didn't mind dying until the Hide bullshit happened and he got the white hair bullshit. Which was "coincidentally" when he started beating Arima.
You're objectively wrong.
>The whole reason he didn't go for the kill is because he knew Kaneki was holding back and tried to force him into not holding back anymore.
Except even after Kaneki was not holding back anymore in a certain maner, Arima still wasn't going for the kill. We've seen Arima always use precise attacks to finish opponents off quickly. He was mostly hacking at Kaneki anywhere that wasn't the head, even though that was his only weak spot.
So why would Arima not use all the power he had in the end? It's the same with Eto. Both of them used all the power they had at the end because there is nothing for them to win if they go easy. The whole point is for Kaneki to surpass the both of them.
If they go easy on him and only then Kaneki is able to defeat them, that means Kaneki is weaker and isn't worthy of succeeding Arima.
It's plain as fucking day that Arima was beaten at full-strength, because that was the whole point of it: a ghoul worthy of succeeding Arima. If he could just pretend to be beaten by any ghoul who isn't really strong enough to kill him, then why the fuck would he even need Kaneki?
You guys are as fucking dense as Chibi.
>nothing he does will work
Except you're forgetting part one where stabbing the brain did Kaneki in. If Arima had completely hacked Kaneki's brain to bits, he easily would've won.
Do you all really believe kaneki could defeat arima?? Even kaneki said how arima is unstoppable, he's literally god in this series and kaneki could never hope to touch him. Arima let him win becuase if people thought kaneki killed god theyd falsely believe he was strong so they would follow him. Since arima knew he would die soon it was his parting gift to kaneki.
Helvetica just used the WYJ digital raws which barely need any cleaning and re-drawing, same as Twisted Hel. Mangastream does the same too, they just go with whatever raws they have and then update them two weeks later when the digital chapter gets released.
>tfw ishida had naki get btfo this chapter
Oh well, at least hes not dead and got beat by godneki
>Arima was beaten at full-strength
Except you're missing the part where neither he or Kaneki chose to fight to kill each other. This fight was a bunch of flashy attacks that were completely meaningless.
Quinques break eventually and Arima knew this. This was part of his plan for Kaneki to finish him off.
He needs Kaneki because he was dying. It's like you just didn't bother reading you just looked at the pretty pictures.
See this >>149940035
Ken had his Hide moment and wanted to live and still Arima was better than him.
Kaneki is on nakis level, just a little stronger as shown in this ch. And you think he legitimately defeated arima? Kaneki would be rated s+ in terms of strength, maybe ss at most although highly unlikely.
I think it's a mistranslation and Kaneki said it didn't hurt.
>Naki: Doesn't it hurt?
Japanese doesn't work like English here. He's agreeing with the negative, i.e. saying it doesn't hurt. In my opinion.
>Arima half blind and already dying of old age.
>Kaneki has to use full power and MC plot armor to defeat him
Remember this Kanekifags, nobody is stronger then godrima.
>Which was "coincidentally" when he started beating Arima.
>Arima not trying > Kaneki not trying
>Arima not trying < Kaneki trying
>Arima trying > Kaneki trying
If this wasn't true, the Kirishits would've died 10 seconds into combat with Arima.
>Then Arima could've just gotten any other fucking ghoul
Well that fucking ghoul would've needed to tank every attack that wasn't the head and have a kagune strong enough to break Arima's Quinques.
>No way to know if Kaneki was actually better or not.
The power difference was clear as day in part one. In Cocklea, Arima didn't give a fuck about anything but dying.
CCG shouldnt really stand a chance considering who's actually alive, but either ishida will asspull new ccg people, or tweak the existing ccgs powerlevels up. either one will annoy me. or Kaneki just crushes CCG and it will be a refreshing turn of events
Kaneki beat Arima by destroying IXA and then the Owl quinque. Destroying a powerful quinque and trying not to kill the user in the process has been proven multiple times to require far more power and speed than landing a simple killing blow.
Arimafags can remain in denial, though. The tears soothe me.
Probably honestly. Shachi was a fighting genius with a pretty much indestructible body. He only got unlucky that arima had electricity. Kanekis attacks eould never hurt him, plus shachi is faster and bigger.
I hope Ishida's obsession with muh parallels forces him to end this manga on chapter 143. I'm a bit tired.
>donato and clowns
>kanou and experiments
>kaiko and v
>ccg jobber army
All I see is Kanou's quinx standing a chance but the one's Kanou already made sucked dick. V shitters were raped by Eto. Clowns aren't that special.
I honestly don't know at this point.
>Destroying a powerful quinque and trying not to kill the user in the process has been proven multiple times to require far more power and speed than landing a simple killing blow.
Quinques break all the fuckin time. Even Gayama and Pineapple
who didn't give a fuckdid it without killing the users.
It doesn't matter how powerful it is, kaneki pierced him through multiplle times and nothing happened. What could kaneki do now besides pierce him with his kagune? Its not like he has a fire or electric kagune.
Read it again. Kaneki's kagune wasn't strong enough to do more than land shallow blows. When it came to his speed, it was enough to fight Shachi, because he got several hits in, just that they didn't get through Shachi's flesh proper.
Kaneki's kagune is now a lot stronger and sharper, and he's even quicker than before.
>I don't remember Pineapple breaking a quinque.
>but he lost his gains from stockpiling and eating for 6 months in his fight against Arima where he had to constantly regen his limbs to keep up. He even says near the end that he's running low on materials he can use.
>So he's back to fuccboi mode now after using all his gains to beat Arima.
Nah that's retarded.
Don't bring real science into this, all of his power is RC Cell bullshit so accept that. He's still stronger than Arima by now
even furuta could beat kaneki, did you see how fast furuta grabbed him by the throat and he couldn't even react? he could've broken his neck right there if he wanted. but he wants to play with him more.
What /pol/, which I decided to leave for good after a certain very well known event, taught me well, was that dubs and the such never, ever lie. Meme magic is real. Rizeneki is the endgame.
How the heck did Kaneki get almost as tall as Tsukiyama?
>get rekt by sachi twice
>arima kills sachi with ease
>kaneki tells everyone he the one eye king
What a pleb
Reminder you will never fuck Touka no matter how much you desperately self insert as Kaneki and that your garbage ship will never sail>>149946832.
He will die along with your self insert delusions.
>tfw all of Takatsuki's main characters die at the end of her books

Based. I hope Touka doesn't just disappear for this entire arc like every other one since Aogiri.
Same anon, after her appearance in Cochlea, I'd really like to see
Ishida put the useless bitch down for good so she can stop shitting the story up with her appeasement cameos.
This isn't a tragedy anon.
Furuta will murder her in front of Kaneki when this manga nears its end.
>still pushing the death kanji meme
Let it go, anon. It's been seven months since chapter 72, I'm pretty sure if it was meant to be legit foreshadowing, something would have actually happened to her by now.
No, I mean in general such as >>149947909
Why do insecure toukafags immediately assume someone *must* be a buttblusted etofag? Ya know, despite the two characters having nonexistent interaction and no connections whatsoever. The only thing they have in "common" is wanting Kaneki's dick. It's like they think Eto is a "threat" to their ship (or they've deluded themselves into thinking shipper etofags must only dislike Touka because she is a "threat" to their pairing.) This is the only way I can rationalize why the hell "Etofag" always comes up in reference to an anon bashing Touka. It's the most retarded level of reasoning and almost definitely requires a degree of projection to actually believe.
So how does the OOK think he's going to address the whole "Ghouls have to eat humans to stay alive" thing? I don't think he can reasonably expect people to give up the corpses of their loved ones as fodder
Don't underestimate subtle foreshadowing. Many anons denied the fact of Arima being the OEK despite the evidence of his right eye constantly being covered throughout the story.
How long have you been on these threads? If you were around November 2015 - March 2016, it should be pretty obvious why it's not a stretch to assume most people bashing Touka are assblasted Etofags, since that's been the case ever since Eto/Kaneki really blew up as a ship.
>How long have you been on these threads?
>November 2015 - March 2016
Oh my god, you couldn't look anymore fucking new right now. WELL before Eto became anything resembling relevant in :re, bashing Touka was the norm around here. Eto just became more popular and became an easy scapegoat for the persecuted Toukafags to come out of the woodwork. Fuck, IS used to even put Fuck Touka in their chapters, and we know they used to lurk here before being absorbed by niggerstream.
Because Ishida is Kubo. Kaneki is Ichigo. And Touka is Rukia. Just like how Kubo can't draw Ichigo without Rukia, he cannot draw Kaneki without Touka. Parallels, anon.
I've been here since Nov 2014. Touka was disliked long before then, and that dislike spiked up dramatically after she became willingly useless by not helping Haise regain his memories.
Arima's right eye being covered isn't comparable to this though - I'd hardly consider it subtle. Anyway, this just isn't Ishida's style. When he draws kanji or tarot numbers into the panels, it's much more obvious and is usually drawn into the characters hair, tears, clothes, etc., it's never a bunch of barely visible lines. Ishida really isn't particularly subtle at all, *especially* when it comes to foreshadowing death, despite what people on here seem to believe.
I remember why I stopped discussing TG with /a/. You're so negative about everything.
>Touka bashing was the norm around here
Yep, and mainly by Etofags. You've been around for how long, yet you didn't notice the fact that the rise of Etofaggotry was accompanied with more frequent Touka bashing, and you seriously think there's no link between the two? Bullshit.
Fuck off, I lurked these threads ever since interest in the series first started to pick up among English-speaking readers so shove it up your ass, Etofag.
Different anon, but can you please use your brain and quit shitting out buzzwords? Either way, you are mistaken. The "rise" of Touka hate on /a/ had nothing at all to do with Eto. People here have been calling her useless for a very long time, and I do not believe you for a second if you say Eto had any influence on the Touka hate. The Touka hate did not kick back into high gear until Ishida shoo-horned her into the latest arc with full blown plot armor along with her family.
This manga seems to have been forsaken by people on /a/. I dont know if every animefag left or the manga dropped the ball so hard that most people dropped it, but something happened. Remember when chapter threads would easily reach 600-700 posts, full of at least discussion, and yeah shitposting too.
Now look, we have a spoiler thread and a chapter thread in one, and we havent even reached bump limit after 13 hours.
>Fuck off, I lurked these threads ever since interest in the series first started to pick up among English-speaking readers so shove it up your ass, Etofag.
I was here before the threads even took off, get on my level.
Seriously. There was a noticable decline after the Tsukiyama raid, which was the peak of the story thus far in my opinion. Before the latest arcs, I would spend up to 6 hours catching up with the spoiler threads via the archive after the chapter dropped. Now it's no where near that. And the discussions aren't nearly as enjoyable. Not only has the story not been as engaging, but all the quality posts and theory crafting are all gone. Now all the posts are basically "huurdurr fuck off Etofag" and "kill yourself toukafag :^)" and an onslaught of other non productive posts.
The chapters would have be consistently excellent for interest to pick up to the degree it was. To be honest, though, there isn't really much time in the manga left - I'd say we have less than a year to go. So there isn't really much time for the threads to recover their numbers, I guess? I think :re will pick up popularity on /a/ in its final stages as people return to the manga for nostalgia.
亡 - destroy, fall, collapse, run away, etc. It doesn't really make sense to view this as a death flag, since it'd be more apt to use 死 or 死ぬ to indicate an upcoming death (I think this was what was written on Kaneki's back when he was on his way to Anteiku in the final stages of part 1).
He got sentimental. There's not a single person stronger than Arima. Over 700 chances to kill Kaneki.
>I had Tycho do it
What was the original text for this? Doesn't make any sense and no one can trust MS's half-baked translation.
I feel like you're the same type of fag who calls any character that does something bad or unclear "edgy" and would rather jerk off to unrealistic Naruto-tier hero characters.
Touka is definitely Ishida's prim choice as far as "pairing" goes as far as his artwork goes, even though there are sparse bits of Eto and Rize thrown in. Though I think it's interesting he does yin and yang with Touka and Kaneki, but opts Red Strings of Fate for Eto and Kaneki. Either way, I don't really care what Ishida draws as long as he doesn't force any of this shit in the main story.
Tycho Johannes, one of the three guys who protected Tsukiyama fduring the E.T.O.
He's a pretentious gary stu and was spontaneously introduced in the story as the guy who got his hands/played a part on everything(washuu, V, half-ghoul, CCG, clowns). It doesn't help that his motivations are boiled down to being a 'nice guy' who wasn't rewarded with sex. Overall, I understand why Ishida would choose him as the main antagonist as a foil for Kaneki since he's literally his opposite.
It's funny because Ishida is literally an edgy Kubo 2.0. However I don't think Ishida is gonna pull a Kubo and BTFO the shipping cancer. Yet story-wise, Ishida is clearly the new famous hack in YJ.
>what should happen in the manga to breathe new life back into it?
Erase Furuta's existence or stop forcing him to be the main villain, just let him be a side character again who will eventually get the last laugh at the end of the manga. Introduce strong, eccentric, classy and cunning /v/ leaders and underlings. Make /v/ great again. And change the fucking MC or focus on other character's PoV. Kaneki hasn't felt like the protagonist anymore since :re started. That's it.
