Tokyo Ghoul:re Chapter 60: Threads of Blood

The end is approaching.



You know, I really miss Haise. He was such a good-natured guy! Kaneki telling Shiono that he likes Takatsuki’s books is as conclusive a proof as we need that Kaneki is now Kaneki again, if anyone still doubted it. We keep going through so many chapters without getting into the current Kaneki’s head, and it’s really making it difficult to take a closer look at him and work out exactly what his current goals are and how he’s going to go about doing things. It doesn’t help that we waited two weeks for Ishida to reveal that Eto wasn’t even home at all. From his interrogation of Shiono and his subsequent conversation with Furuta, it genuinely seems like he’s not willing to let Eto go – the fact that he’s told the rest of the CCG that he believes Takatsuki Sen is the One-Eyed Owl implies that he’s out to incriminate her instead of what everyone suspected about him teaming up with her. It’s odd that he’s waited six months, but he’s literally told them all that he’s found the One-Eyed Owl, and that he’s leading a covert operation to deal with her. So much for that Cochlea breakout party.

The rest of the chapter basically set up the next major conflict, which as long speculated is an Aogiri-centric arc. The opening stages are probably going to be set on Rue Island, and I have a suspicious feeling that Hachikawa and his team are going to end up in a state even worse than Hachikawa’s face currently is. If they find Kanou’s half-ghoul army there, a couple of doves aren’t going to be of much use – even if one of them is Mutsuki. Actually, especially if one of them is Mutsuki, because Torso’s presence and potentially Shirazu’s corpse’s presence isn’t going to do him any favours.

I love how Kaneki has made it to the top, by the way. He’s recovered his memories, and so he knows perfectly well that he’s literally sitting in the middle of the enemy stronghold – in their war room in fact, with all their most powerful executives all around the same table. Presumably none of them have their quinques with them. He’d still probably be hard-pressed to kill them all even if they’re unarmed, but I’m sure he could pick off a few chosen squad leaders by surprise before he’s taken down. I recommend Matsuri. He should also do it with that ‘creepy smile’ on his face.

It’s also rather funny that Kaneki has listed Eto as an S-rate ghoul. From what Nico told him I’m sure he knows that Eto is the same person as Takatsuki Sen, but I guess he’s letting the CCG know what he wants them to know, and that doesn’t include the first-hand info on them that he must have had as Kaneki. I think we should also be anticipating a dramatic clash between Tatara and Hoji, since they seem to have identified Tatara as one of the most dangerous Aogiri executives that need to be taken out. Kaneki can probably beat him if he’s of comparable strength to Eto, but he’s only one person in the end. I really don’t see this arc ending well for the CCG, especially if Kaneki defects.

I really miss his Sasaki persona too. :( As Sasaki, he was so good-natured and kind…but the story’s really barreling into new conflicts and revelations, so I’m also excited to see what happens next.


You say enemy stronghold, but I see a guy who is mimicking Arima so has clearly become attached to CCG due to his abuse = love mindset.


there’s also the fact that Eto has outright stated that she is not the “one-eyed king’, leaving only one other option. *and* there is apparently another Cochlea operation in the works

my theory? Kaneki is waiting for the right time to utterly betray the CCG

Eto seems pretty certain about that at least


Well that should be saved for next weeks chapter. Even then it’s iffy exactly what they mean because Tatara has had a line about the king passing by once and he’s in on all of Eto’s schemes. The idea that he’s going to betray CCG when he’s clearly gunning for Eto and wants her taken down his own way suggests he has his own goal and betraying CCG is not part of it currently.
