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.

Ken: I’m not the protagonist of a novel or anything. I’m just a normal book-loving college student you’d find anywhere. But… If I were to write a single work with myself as the protagonist, it would surely be… A tragedy.
Ken: This world is wrong. The one who’s twisted is…! The one who’s twisted is…!
Ken: Tokyo Ghoul carnaval.
Ken: I am a ghoul.

KYAA! I instantly got excited when I first heard the news! I just finished writing a review about Tokyo Ghoul and I remembered how much I ranted about the last chapter and the mysteries that were left unsolved. And now this! *o* I already saw some scans of the new manga though they aren’t translated yet. It seems like there will be new characters in the series and it is not still clear whether Kaneki is really dead or there will be a new protagonist. I also heard that the story will take place two years after the original series. I’m looking forward to Tokyo Ghoul:re and the new season of the anime!
