Tokyo Ghoul √A Ep. 4 – “Deeper Layers” (Summary)

The fourth chapter is filled with action scenes as the whole episode takes place in Cochlea, a secret detention center that confines ghouls rated C through SS. The Aogiri members attack the facility to free the other ghouls, alerting Amon and Akira who are at the internment center that time to obtain information from Donato Porpora about Aogiri’s plans. Failing to attain any data from Donato, the two investigators join the security members in fighting the enemies, but Akira ends up being bitten on her leg by Naki.

Shinohara arrives at Cochlea and immediately sets into action as he encounters Ayato Kirishima, who recognizes his father’s kakuja from Shinohara’s Arata proto. Suzuya, on the other hand, easily wipes out a number of ghouls before facing his former classmates from the CCG Academy, Kurona and Nashiro Yasuhisa.

Meanwhile, Kaneki releases Shachi, and the latter instantly picks up the scent of Rize from Kaneki. The two engage in a battle, but with Shachi’s speed and dexterity in martial arts, he easily hurls Kaneki down. Eto appears and asks Shachi if he wants to see Rize as she addresses him as Mr. Kamishiro.

Before the episode comes to its conclusion, the scene shows Kaneki in a room full of skulls and bones, and as he mutters to himself about protecting Anteiku, Touka and Hide, he unleashes his kakuja for the first time.

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.

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.
