Tokyo Ghoul √A Ep. 11 – “Deluge of Flowers” (Summary)

The appearance of the real One-Eyed Owl catches the investigators off guard, which results to their quick defeat. Just when the ghoul is about to strike Juuzou, Shinohara shields his subordinate, receiving the deadly blow instead. Juuzou, upon seeing the bloodied form of Shinohara, continues to fight the enemy but he fails to injure it. Just then, Arima finally arrives and he immediately attacks the Owl.

Akira Mado is commanded by Yoshitoki Washuu to assist the 4th Division Squad led by Koutarou Amon who is already fighting with Ken Kaneki. Tatara flings Seidou to Noro after he refuses to tell the whereabouts of Hoji. The other Aogiri members, including Ayato and Naki, also participate in the clash between the doves and ghouls.

The One-Eyed Owl swallows the unconscious body of Yoshimura before fleeing after Arima starts to overpower her. It is then revealed that Takatsuki Sen is Eto, who is also known as the One-Eyed Owl of Aogiri.

Tokyo Ghoul √A Ep. 5 – “Rift” (Summary)

The battle between the ghouls and the CCG investigators in Cochlea escalates as both parties suffer a lot of casualties. Juuzo Suzuya confronts his former academy classmates who are now ghouls. He nonchalantly stabs Kurona repeatedly, without giving her time to heal herself. When Nashiro tries to attack Juuzo, the latter easily slashes her, forcing Kurona to flee with her twin.

Meanwhile, Ayato incessantly assaults Shinohara as fragments of his childhood memories with his father flash before him. However, Shinohara overpowers him and before Ayato is completely killed by the CCG investigator, Kaneki intercepts and attacks the enemy using his new kakuja. His transformation makes him lose control of his sanity as he maniacally assails Shinohara with his incredible speed, enabling him to overwhelm the investigator. While the battle continues between Houji and Tatara, the ghoul facility center suddenly emits CRC gas as the alarm goes off. Tatara simply walks away as the whole area is clouded in smoke.

Koutarou Amon runs into the Yasuhisa twins while he is aiding Akira Mado who was bitten by Naki on the leg. Amon instantly recognizes the ghouls who used to be trainees in the CCG academy. But upon seeing him, Kurona quickly avoids him and runs away together with her injured sister. Amidst the haze, Amon notices Kaneki cannibalizing on what appears to be Shinohara’s Arata armor. The scene infuriates Amon, who first assumed that the “eyepatch” was different from the other ghouls. He attacks Kaneki and cuts off his kagune and kakuja. Amon’s words snap Kaneki back to his senses, and he sheds some tears as he tells the CCG investigator that he doesn’t want to eat anymore. That moment, the One-Eyed Owl appears and retrieves Ayato and Kaneki, leaving the CCG investigators in the ghoul detention center as it flies away.

Tokyo Ghoul √A Ep. 3 – “Hangman” (Summary)

Kaneki and Ayato, together with the other ghouls, attack a CCG police van to rescue Naki, who is devastated upon discovering the death of his boss, Yamori. However, he is not aware that it was Kaneki who defeated Yamori, and he even thanks him for teaching him how to write his boss’ name and proceeds to call him a good guy.

Hinami attends Takatsuki Sen’s book signing event, in which she asks the author to write Kaneki Ken’s name in the book since she plans to give it to him as a present. Nishiki, on the other hand, briefly tours Touka in Kamii University before leaving her all by herself to meet his girlfriend Kimi. Touka continues to walk around the area until she spots a poster of Kaneki on the school’s bulletin board. She also meets Hideyoshi Nagachika and they briefly talk about Kaneki who is missing. After the short conversation, Hide returns to his work as a messenger in CCG where he surreptitiously acquires information about the “eyepatched ghoul” from Seidou.

Juuzou Suzuya finally obtains his new quinque and names it Juuzou’s Jason. Kousuke Houji and his partner Seidou Takizawa present a report to him, Amon, Mado and Shinohara regarding their discovery. Their investigation points out the accident that happened months ago, where a man received an organ transplant from a deceased woman without his consent. They figure out the young man to be Kaneki Ken from Kamii University, who has gone missing after the surgery.

Tokyo Ghoul √A Ep. 2 – “Dancing Flowers” (Summary)

The beginning of the episode shows a brief recollection during the first battle of CCG against the One-eyed Owl. Kureo Mado and Yukinori Shinohara were faced with the overwhelming strength of the ghoul, but it was Kishou Arima who rushed headlong into battle with the enemy.

The scene is cut and the setting resumes to the present time where the high-ranking CCG investigators are having a conference. They discuss the situation regarding the Aogiri group and its connection with the “eye-patched” ghoul. After the meeting, Shinohara and Iwao express their opinion about the apparent changes with the One-Eyed Owl during their first encounter with him compared to the most recent one.

Shinohara formally introduces Akira Mado as Koutarou Amon’s new partner. Akira is the daughter of Kureo Mado and the rival of Seidou Takizawa who is her classmate from the Academy. She presents her accurate deductions concerning the ghouls such as the binge eater, the Gourmet and the Aogiri Tree to Amon, Suzuya, Shinohara, Seidou and Houji.

Touka, on the other hand, spends most of her time studying for the entrance exam to get in Kamii University. The staff of Anteiku are also busy preparing for the opening of the cafe after it was closed during their fight with Aogiri. Uta, Itori and Yomo visit the coffee shop to celebrate its reinstatement together with Touka, Hinami, Nishio, Yoshimura, Koma and Irimi.

Meanwhile, Kaneki continues to work with Aogiri with Ayato as his partner. Towards the end of the episode, Eto is seen entering a room and undressing her bandages. The lower part of her face is shown as she smiles while uttering the name of Kaneki.

Tokyo Ghoul √A Ep.1 – “Faith” (Summary)

The opening of the episode simultaneously shows Hideyoshi bicycling as he looks for his best friend Kaneki who in turn walks out of the cell where he defeated his torturer, Jason. The battle between the CCG investigators and the Aogiri members continues as Shinohara and Kuroiwa equip themselves with their quinques and aratas to fight the “One-Eyed Owl” alongside Hirako and Amon.

Meanwhile, Yomo teams up with Tsukiyama and Uta to fight against Aogiri’s Noro but they fail to inflict any serious damage to him since he has strong regenerative abilities. Noro withdraws from the fight when his alarm rings and the other three decide not to follow him. On the other hand, Touka gets beaten by Ayato in a one-sided match where the latter snips her kagune. Just before she loses her consciousness, Kaneki saves her and begins to fight Ayato as well. Their battle only lasts for a short time as Noro picks up Ayato and leaves the building. Just then, the Aogiri hideout suddenly begins to crumble and Tsukiyama arrives just in time to free Banjou and three other ghouls from the collapsing building. The “Owl” saves Shinohara and Kuroiwa when a tank almost topples them before disappearing from the scene while Kaneki carries Touka outside to safety along with Nishio. However, Kaneki immediately walks back to the hideout as he asks Nishio to look after Touka. While he is looking at the corpses, Eto appears before him.

New characters, including Kurona and Nashiro Yasuhisa, together with a man who seems to be Dr. Kanou are also introduced.  

Other characters are also introduced, which I presume to be Dr. Kanou and his experiments, Kurona and Nashiro Yasuhisa. The ghouls below are members of Pierrot, and the one wearing the Clown mask (I suppose) is Nico. ©Pierrot

Afterwards, Kaneki comes back to where Touka is to tell her that he will not be going back to Anteiku anymore. He informs her that he will be going over to Aogiri, much to her surprise. With that, Kaneki starts to walk away, leaving Touka as she frailly attempts to reach and stop him.

Kaneki is seen back in the hideout where Eto, Noro, Tatara and a displeased Ayato are waiting for him. The four Aogiri members start to leave, and Kaneki follows them.
