- Shirazu, Saiko, and Takeomi are eating breads in Yoriko’s bread store.
Shirazu: Oh, it’s delicious!
Saiko: … (Munch, munch)
Yoriko: Here, have a coffee.
Shirazu: Oh, thanks!
Yoriko: Kuroiwa-kun has become an investigator. Your father is also a ghoul investigator.
Shirazu: What a coincidence to have met with an elementary school’s classmate.
Takeomi: Because of my father’s circumstances, I often transfer school, but I was in the same class with Kosaka for many years.
Shirazu: Is Kuroiwa like this too long ago?
- Yoriko smiles as she said so.
Yoriko: He’s taciturn, but he’s a man with strong presence.
- There’s an image of young Takeomi and Yoriko.
Yoriko: He’s very athletic, which is why he’s really good during physical education. I’m really bad at sports, but I can run fast. I was one of the participants in gender mixed relay race during the sport event. My position is second to last, but…
- Yoriko’s flashback.
- During the relay race, Yoriko fell down.
Students: Oh my, she’s in the last place. I feel sorry for her.
Students: Ah, what are you doing? Kosaka, hurry and stand up!
- Yoriko looked like she was about to cry.
- At that moment, she heard Takeomi’s voice.
- Takeomi was asking her to pass the baton.
- Seeing that, Yoriko began to run.
Yoriko: (Because of fault, Kuroiwa-kun is now dead last, but there isn’t any frustration in his face.)
- And thus Yoriko managed to hand the baton to Takeomi. <— And thus the ship has sailed. XD
- End of flashback.
Yoriko: After that, he surpassed all the students and became first.
Shirazu: I knew it, Kuroiwa is the same as Kuroiwa of the past. (Sweat)
Shirazu: Right now he’s a Rank One Investigator at such age.
Yoriko: Is that a good thing?
Shirazu: It’s not just good. The average age for one to become a Rank One Investigator is 27.
Yoriko: Oh, that’s awesome, Kuroiwa-kun.
Takeomi: For Kosaka, it’s a bread store.
Yoriko: I originally wanted to become a chef, but I ended up enjoying making breads. I thought it would be great if I opened a cafe or a bread store someday. Right now, I’m in the middle of studying. I hope to come up with an original bread.
Saiko: How nice.
- At that moment, a shadow of person with french breads can be seen from the back of the shop.
Yoriko: Ah, it’s time to go back. It’s scary when the shop’s owner is angry. When the owner holds
french breads, it means I have to hurry up.
Shirazu: Oh, we are leaving, too.
Takeomi: Kosaka, the bread is really good.
Yoriko: Come again, Kuroiwa-kun.
- Urie is doing bench press in Sport’s Club.
Urie: More… I need more… I need it until the muscle cries.
Urie: This… This is it…
- Apparently, if you hurt your muscles, it will become stronger because of self regeneration. Urie wants to use this strengthen his Kakuhou.
- Flashback with Dr. Shiba who told Urie that Quinx will become stronger the more hurt they are.
- Mutsuki is together with Suzuya’s team, discussing about Clowns.
Suzuya: I think that’s it for today.
Hanbee: It is worrying the relationship between the Clowns and Aogiri Tree.
Mutsuki: Suzuya-san, there’s one more thing that bothers me, about what No Face has said.
- Flashback of Uta saying “The operation has failed. Help won’t come.”
Suzuya: …The plan has been leaked?
Nakarai: We don’t know how they get their information, but if we trace that route, it might lead to the Clowns.
Mutsuki: May I report the content of this meeting to Sensei?
Suzuya: Speaking of which, why does Tooru call Haise “Sensei”? <— Good question, Suzuya, I wanna know, too. lol
Mutsuki: Ah… well… In the academy where I was enrolled at during my junior years, he was there as a lecturer. He taught us how to control Quinque… Everyone called him “Sensei, Sensei”, that’s why it stuck with me…
Suzuya: I see.
Hanbee: Suzuya-senpai doesn’t do lectures? If there is one, Hanbee would have flown over. <— LOL Hanbee. XD
Suzuya: About that, strangely no one has ever called me to do that. I wonder why. <— You’re too advanced, Suzuya XD
Nakarai: Abara, don’t ask unnecessary things. Your job is to get snacks for senpai, so hurry up and do it now.
Mutsuki: Today, Sensei has a lecture in the academy.
- Sasaki-sensei just finished his lecture.
Students: Sensei, thank you for your hard work!
Sasaki: Yes, thank you for your hard work!
Students: Hurry up and get a girlfriend!
Sasaki: It’s none of your business~ <— He said it in playful way here. But, dang, Sasaki is popular. Haha~ XD
Sasaki: (This year too, the second academy has plenty lively students. Every academy has its own flavor. The first has many brilliant students, while fifth and sixth have the most sociable students.)
Sasaki: (Speaking of which, Juuzou-kun is also from the second…)
- At that moment, someone calls Sasaki, the second Academy instructor, Tokage Goumasa.
Tokage: Sasaki Rank One… Ah, you’re already First Class…
Sasaki: (Instructor Tokage…)
Tokage: How are our students? A bunch of fools, aren’t they?
Sasaki: No, they are very lively. It’s fun.
Tokage: The second academy is aimed towards “kids with past problems”. There are those with criminal records, too.
Tokage: Speaking of which, How is Mutsuki? Mutsuki Tooru, he is your subordinate, right? That kid is horrible, too.
- Sasaki looks a little shocked by that statement.
Sasaki: No, no… he’s very serious and passionate. Recently, he also receives lectures from Suzuya Special Class.
Tokage: Ah, Suzuya… Hmm…
Sasaki: Lately, he has the face of an investigator.
- Sasaki said so with a warm smile.
Sasaki: (Tokage-san was an interrogator of Cochlea in the past. The place where harsh interrogation are repeatedly made. It seems that he got that wound by a ghoul when he wasn’t paying attention. That ghoul ran away to 11 wards, and was defeated by Juuzou-kun, that “13th ward Jason”.
Sasaki: (With that look and strict demeanor, there are students who can’t handle Instructor Tokage. It’s true that… I can feel “some kind of darkness” from Tokage-san.”)
- Kanae meets up with Hori Chie in some restaurant.
Kanae: Well then, little mouse, tell me the way to save Shuu-sama!
Hori Chie: It’s a very easy thing to do.
Kanae: Very easy thing…
Hori Chie: You just have to tell him that “Kaneki-kun is still alive.”
Kanae: Are you making fun of me? I could have come up with that, too. Shuu-sama couldn’t possibly get better with just that…!!
Hori Chie: Even if you could come up with it, if you don’t do it, there’s no different with not coming up with it. Why Tsukiyama-kun became like that, you knew it too, don’t you?
Hori Chie: The thing that caused the change, what is it?
Kanae: Kaneki Ken’s… death…
Hori Chie: To solve a problem, you need to look at the cause. But this has a very strong “element of gambling”.
Hori Chie: I’ve told you. Tsukiyama family might disappear. When the first time Tsukiyama-kun attacked Kaneki-kun, he was just a “half-ghoul”. Right now, he’s a “half-ghoul ghoul investigator.”
Hori Chie: Just by moving, Tsukiyama-kun will become an enemy of CCG. Of course, I’ll try my best to cooperate, but Tsukiyama-kun, you know… he has too much energy, you won’t know what he will do.
Hori Chie: My way of saving Tsukiyama-kun is both “the way to get Tsukiyama-kun better” and “we don’t know what he will do after that”.
Kanae: (What an irresponsible little mouse… but…)
Kanae: Why do you go to such length to get involved with Shuu-sama?
Hori Chie: Well, I may look like this, but I’m really scared of death. It’s hard to believe that you will disappear forever. That’s why right now, I hope I can die with the thoughts that “it’s alright even if I die now.”
Hori Chie: That’s why I always look for having a good time. Tsukiyama-kun is fun. That is why.
Kanae: (…Even someone like you can appreciate Shuu-sama greatness… How scary.)
Kanae: I’ll do it. Tell me what I should do.
Hori Chie: Right, I thought so too, that’s why I immediately brought these.
- Hori Chie puts envelopes with 6 numbers on the table.
Hori Chie: There are photos in the envelopes with numbers. Give Tsukiyama-kun the numbered envelope I specified. Kanae-kun, please help Tsukiyama-kun fulfill his wish. Promise me one thing, no matter what happened, please respect his wish. If you promised me that, I’ll give you photo no 1.
- Kanae shows Shuu the photo.
- Tsukiyama’s hand shakes when he sees Sasaki’s photo.
Shuu: Kanae, tell me more.
