Tokyo Ghoul √A Ep. 10 – “Last Rain” (Summary)

The raid in the 20th ward continues as the CCG officers and the Anteiku ghouls fight each other. Koma and Irimi have the upper hand at first, but they are eventually defeated by Tanakamaru and Hachikawa. However, just before they are completely killed by the doves, Ken Kaneki arrives and rescues them. He is seen by Touka and Hideyoshi when he returns to the battle where he encounters Koutaro Amon and the 4th division squad.

Yoshimura, on the other hand, is surrounded by several special class ghoul investigators and their associates. Yukinori Shinohara, Iwao Kuroiwa, Juuzou Suzuya, Koori Ui and Kousuke Houji attack the One-Eyed Owl simultaneously, and even with his quick regenerating abilities, the ghoul suffers heavy injuries until he is completely subdued.

Just before the operation starts, Ken Kaneki and Touka Kirishima find out about the attack as the announcement is shown on television. Touka immediately leaves her apartment even though Renji Yomo tries to stop her. Enji Koma and Kaya Irimi welcome the doves who have already begun to surround Anteiku, and the fight between the ghouls and the CCG officers commences.

Mougan Tanakamaru, the leader of the 2nd Division, faces the Devil Ape, while Hachikawa of the 3rd Squad fights the Black Dog. In the midst of the attack, Yoshimura finally appears and transforms as the One-Eyed Owl and assaults the officers until Yukinori Shinohara and Iwao Kuroiwa arrive to repress him.

Nishiki Nishio meets Kaneki on top of the building and assures him that Touka and Hinami are safe. Just then, Shuu Tsukiyama suddenly shows up and attacks Kaneki. He struggles to stop Kaneki from joining the fight as he raves about eating him. However, Kaneki easily subdues him as he lies on the ground weeping, still trying to prevent him from going. Kaneki thanks him for his concern, but he states that he can’t stand not being able to do anything anymore.

Tokyo Ghoul √A Ep. 8 – “Old Nines” (Summary)

This episode reveals what the manager and Kaneki discussed during the latter’s visit to Anteiku. When asked about the Owl, Yoshimura narrates a short story about a ghoul called Kuzen and how his life changed after meeting a human named Ukina. They had a child together but their happiness was short-lived when the woman was killed by other ghouls. He fled together with his child, but by the time he finished wiping out his enemies, his daughter was already gone. That child then becomes the One-Eyed Owl. As Yoshimura ends his story, it is revealed that he, in fact, was Kuzen, and the Owl is actually his child.

Back to the present, Nishio and the rest of the Anteiku staff are busy with their job as the cafe is surprisingly packed with customers. On that snowy day, unbeknownst to them, the doves are starting to make their move as the CCG stealthily spy them. However, Yoshimura already received that report from Renji Yomo, and he instructs him to take care of Hinami and Touka as the two don’t seem to have an idea about the imminent attack to their shop.

Right after the three left, Yukinori Shinohara pays a short visit to Anteiku, and the manager treats him a cup of coffee as the two of them briefly chat. When the investigator leaves, Enji Koma and Kaya Irimi inform Yoshimura that they have already taken care of everything, including the documents. The manager serves them coffee as he expresses how much he will miss the others, and Koma assures him that he and Irimi will stay by his side until the end. Yoshimura, with a distant look in his eyes, whispers, as if talking to Ukina, that his wish did not come true in the end.

That same moment, Yoshitoki Washuu and Itsuki Marude ask the CCG chairman for his approval to implement the mission to exterminate the ghouls in the 20th ward—and the exact location is in a coffee shop called Anteiku
