Tokyo Ghoul √A Ep. 7 – “Permeation” (Summary)

Ken Kaneki continues to be tormented since he still cannot control his kakuja. He is haunted by Rize and Jason, and realizes that he wasn’t cannibalizing ghouls but instead, he was the one being eaten.

Tsukiyama returns to Anteiku and informs Yoshimura about Kaneki’s cannibalism and kakuja. As he is about to leave the cafe, Hinami asks him about Kaneki, so he invites her to another coffee shop to have a little chat. As he excuses himself for a moment and goes to the bathroom, Sen Takatsuki appears and briefly converses with Hinami. The novelist frankly tells her that she cannot do anything to help her big brother with the way she is right now. She leaves the cafe and gives Hinami her business card, telling her to contact her whenever she wants.

Takatsuki then goes to CCG and briefly interviews Shinohara and Suzuya who have just returned to the office. She asks them about the possibility of creating a human ghoul, but Shinohara cannot give her a definite answer. With that, she ends the inquiry and leaves the area after subtly informing them about a “rumor” in a coffee shop in the 20th ward.

Kaneki surprises Roma when he suddenly pays a visit to Anteiku and talks with Yoshimura. When Hinami learns that he is in the cafe, she immediately finds Touka and tells her that Kaneki is in Anteiku at the moment. Touka rushes to meet Kaneki who is already on his way back after talking with the manager. He said that Yoshimura asked him to return to Anteiku, but he still doesn’t know what to do. He wants to get even stronger to be able to protect her and everyone else who is precious to him. However, Touka gets furious with him and yells at him not to come back to Anteiku anymore. She hits him repeatedly as she asks him why he had to end up like that.

Shinohara and Suzuya, on the other hand, pay a visit to Anteiku and asks the manager about Kaneki. Yoshimura only tells them that he lost contact with Kaneki two months ago. The investigator seems to recognize the manager and mistake him for someone else, but as he and Suzuya leave the shop, he affirms that they will come back to Anteiku—the coffee shop in the 20th ward that Takatsuki told them about.

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.
