So with the tokyo ghoul :re anime coming out, I finally decided to fucking read the damn thing. Because of how horrible RootA was and how weirdly paced everything felt. But I'm real confused right now.

How the fuck do they keep this going for 16 volumes? I'm on volume 7 and it feels like "the end" of the story. Here are some major plot points (in spoiler tags ofc) that get resolved in this volume:
>kaneki has his memories again and becomes himself
>kaneki successfully fights off the one eyed owl takatsuki by himself
>eto reveals to aogiri that she is takatsuki
>takatsuki reveals to the public that she is a ghoul
>we find out who more about "v" and what they plan to do
>revealed that furata is basically the devil and somehow has a hand in every corner of the world, is a half ghoul, is a clown, is the clown who killed rize and moved the story for kaneki, is part of "v", etc etc
>aogiri's main base of operations is found by the ccg and a full assault takes place on the island
>kaneki goes against the ccg and breaks hinami out of prison, ayato, banjou, touka, and yomo all show up too
>everyone sees that kaneki is back
>kaneki faces off against arima
>all those hide panels that made me cry like a bitch
>eto breaks out to fight
>both of these colossal fucking battles taking place like it's the end of the story
>even more that I haven't read yet because im still reading kaneki fighting arima

The only way I can see them possibly moving forward from here is Kaneki single-handedly taking on the entire ccg and "v" by himself.

Wow a Tokyo Ghoul thread that doesn't start in one liner bait. Props to you anon. Generally, you've answered yourself and should evacuate in hurry cause you'll be spoiled to no end. Beyond stuff you mentioned, there's still Kanou, Furuta and lots of other stuff to go over. Cochlea is really the restart of the 'proper' story where things hinted or alluded to hitherto finally get a proper push.

Ah okay, thanks anon. I was just so perplexed. Everything felt setup like it was some giant finale. All the questions (besides kanou and "v") all being answered in one fell swoop. And the Hide hallucination/dream/motivation panels really made it seem like it was truly the end and then I looked at the volume number and realized I wasn't even halfway through.

Why is Rize's kagune so strong? Was she like some living experiment for V and selectively bred to have the most adaptable and strong kagune? Kaneki kicks ass with it, Furata kicks ass with it, the Yasuhisa twins kicked ass with AND were able to fuse together somehow. It's so versatile and strong. Do they ever explain this or is it some plot armor magic?

I mean furata completely destroys eto's kakuja in mere seconds.

>> No.172427311

That's where you're wrong, kiddo. Kaneki sort of tries to get the ghouls to coexist with the humans , but it gets them all slaughtered instead. So they move underground, but they get slaughtered there too. Then in an act of desperation he kills a bunch of kids, eats them and turns into a gigantic city devouring kakuja monster. Then Touka goes to save him and pulls him out of the monster and they all welcome him back because they all know that in his heart of hearts, that he din du nuffin.
Also he gets Touka pregnant so he marries her and that's where his motivation for doing pretty much anything since comes from. Being protective of his wife and child. Another thing is now that Touka is carrying the next OEG and it can't inherit the Rize kagune since Kaneki isn't a ghoul genetically, her kagune instead gets a huge boost in power and relevance. It is now the greatest shit ever and her, Ayato and Yomo are some of the strongest fighters around.

Ok so I understand all the Washuu are ghouls and everything is behind the scenes and "V" experiments on ghouls and all that and the sunlit garden is a place where ghoul/human hybrids are bred to be used for the CCG.

But why? Why do the ghouls want to control the countermeasure for ghouls? Is it just being the big bad for the sake of being the big bad? It doesn't seem like there is any justified reason for this. And why does Furata say it would be bad if "V" knew he was a one eyed ghoul? I thought they were all one eyes and/or like Arima, so why would they care?

>> No.172427545

it will all be answered later on.
Basically Washuu want to be humans and they do everything they can to blend into human society. Pure ghouls are looked down on in the family, the more human you have, the better you are. V is a failure to create humanized ghouls. The resulting specimen are defective. V however wants to be ghouls.

>> No.172427975
Quoted By: >>172428131

Why is the CCG only based in Japan? It's been established that ghouls are everywhere (well most likely, they were in germany and china too, so I'm sure they have spread and bred all over the world). But the CCG has only focused their attention on Japan and a bit in China. Think there will be a "Los Angeles Ghoul" spin off or something like how Code Geass had their "other side of the world and different story" spin off?

What I'm curious about is why Kaneki transforms into a gigantic monster, and is apparently 'reborn' as a new entity entirely. I don't think any other Ghoul has gone 'critical mass' like that before, and I'm pretty sure they've eaten more than a hundred people over their lives.

There seems to be a lot of strange beats in the story, like how no-one seems to go "Hey, maybe we should just fucking kill Furuta" even though he's fucking them left and right. This is particularly weird when Furuta escapes from CCG (after being shot multiple times) then leads an attack on the Ghoul hideout in the sewers. What, did nobody call Juuzo and go "Juuzo, Furuta's gone rogue. Find him and kill him, and his unit of creepy children too."?

>> No.172429604

This fight is particularly dumb, because Arima keeps giving Kaneki SO MANY CHANCES. I know he wants Kaneki to defeat him, but he's not even fighting seriously.

Also, is Kaneki not remotely concerned about all the people who'll die when Cochlea is breached? I mean, he has friends amongst the investigators too, right? Surely Cochlea has a garrison. Did no one go "Haise, help me, they're eating me, they're fucking eating me helppppp meeeeeeee you bastarrrrdddddd"?

Ishida either drops or gives an unsatisfying end to most of the foreshadowed plot threads, i.e. le ebin twist kind. Some characters get a ton of, admittedly good, development but most characters have nothing happen to them and get sidelined completely and/or get ruined by the previously mentioned shit plot twists. Not to mention the fuck-ton of plot armour and shitty end of chapter cliff hangers.
tl;dr The manga out of nowhere goes to complete shit

So, lurk more newfag.

>> No.172429797

But Kaneki has always gone out of his way to ensure that no humans get killed. The Ogoi were the first human beings (Well, for a certain value of 'human') that he killed. It's weird that this didn't seem to trouble his conscience at all, especially since all the really dangerous psychopaths were escaping.

Not that guy, but there are so many moments that are just weird. Amon coming back damaged, then 'dying' and coming back AGAIN as the incredible Hulk is really strange. Akira suddenly jumping in front of Takizawa to take a bullet for him (when she'd been actively trying to kill him mere moments ago) is weird, just like Takizawa murdering investigations, then abruptly going "Look, Houji! I killed that one guy you hated! Can't we be friends again?"

Oh, and then you have Shiro / Kuro going from murderous psychopath to "It's cool, I can work with Goat without flying off the handle." Or everything about Tsukiyama, from "Oh shit, my father's dead. I know Haise's Kaneki, but it doesn't matter now, my obsession has hurt those I love. It's time to grow up" to "Oh, daddy just punched his way out of the trap.

Actually, here's one more thing that's worth mentioning. How the hell did Kanou survive this long? I assume he restrained them or whatever when turning them into half-Ghouls, but he doesn't have any mental control over them. More, the half-Ghoul 'Owls' are monstrously powerful!

What stopped Takizawa from going "Hey, I really fucking hate you. I think I'm going to eat you raw and screaming" then just going back to CCG? Amon seems like the kind of guy to flagellate himself, good Catholic boy that he is, but literally nothing stops you from ripping apart everyone else with your new powers then turning yourself in.

This is aluded to at some points. He mentions putting up a front of protecting people and pretending to care, but at the core, he only cares about people close to him.

Another thing that is alluded to is that despite being the “king” and hope for ghouls, he had no moral qualms about killing ghouls, yet he made a point to not kill any humans even in self defense. He shrouded this weakness and moral hypocrisy in a so-called strategy, that if they kill humans that humans will only see ghouls as man eating monsters, ignoring ignoring the fact that it’s already the norm.
