Shark-Kamishiro

*internal Scooby monologue*

“Hey. Gang. Hey. Look at this.”

“No, over here. Look. Seriously.”

“See? It’s the Scooby Snacks that we need to touch to escape this virtual world. Same as all the previous levels.”

“Grab it, and we’re done here. Just grab it.”

“No, seriously, I don’t have opposable thumbs, it’s way harder for me. Could one of you just–… wait, what are you looking at?”

“Oh. A shark way off in the distance. Cool. I guess the whole gang can hear long-distance sharks underwater now.”

“You know It’s like 30 feet away, right? Just grab the Scooby Snacks and we’ll be teleported out of here.”

“I… what are you doing? You can literally just– oh, for the love of….”

“FINE! Fine. Here, I got them. Now we’ll fade away, and teleport to safety at the last possible second.”

“Sheesh. If you want some done right, you have to Scooby-Dooby-do it yourself.”

Am illustration of one of the team finishing moves from Ninja Sentai Kakuranger, Shark Driver. The heroes combines their Shark Machine motorcycles into a platform that launches Ninja Red’s Shark Bleeder cycle towards the enemy at ballistic speeds.

The three Shark Machines are:

Ninja Red’s Shark Bleeder
Ninja Blue’s Shark Launcher (which has a side car for Ninja White)
Ninja Yellow’s Shark Slider (which has a side car for Ninja Black)

All of them are modified Suzuki RF400R motorcycles

If ‘’Unravel’’ was about Kuroneki’s transition to Shironeki and ‘’Munou’’ was about Touken’s unhealthy co-dependency. What ‘’Kitsetsu wa Tsugitsugi Shindeiku’’ was about? Someone theorised that the song was about Haise saying goodbye to his past self. There were several translations of its lyrics, but I still could not comprehend the meaning behind the song. What I managed to capture was that, the song ended in a positive note. If it was not a bother, can you analyse the song?

I too believe that the most accurate interpretation is that of Shironeki transitioning to Haise. 

What makes me think so is this line in particular:

In order to uphold the unstead fact that I’m “me”, it’s like my half-transparent shadow has come to life.

If I were to sing in the rain, would these clouds finally part?

And again: 

In order to uphold the unstead fact that you’re “you”, your unstable ego ventures to despise you.

If you were just able to sing, would the darkness be dispelled? Your life has been left up to a dream rotten at its core.

I address a poem of farewell to my loathsome past;

I have to abandon the remains of these terrible days. These horrid dreams… even if it kills me!

The mention of the shadow coming to life immediately reminded me of @linkspooky’s meta about the shadow in Jung’s psychology. You can read it here. Particularly, this bit: 

In Tokyo Ghoul though, despite finally realizing his true desires in the end Kaneki becomes a victim of his own failed coping mechanism. That mechanism in summary being experiences a trauma-> throws a part of his personality away to adapt or suppresses a need-> projects and/or hallucinates some fraction of himself to shift the blame of that action on-> Then his original personality becomes more of an act to pretend everything is okay and cover for what he is missing-> Which stresses his ego out further-> Until it collapses and gives way for the shadow’s baser instincts.

Kaneki realizes at least a part of this at the end of his ‘life’, but does not resolve to change it which leads to his eventual arc in :Re.

Haise at this point believes the only way he can be happy, is to ‘dream a happy dream’, which is really just another level of projection as after this point his whole past self becomes his shadow.

(the whole meta is worth reading though. I strongly advise you do if you haven’t yet!)

the tl;dr version would be that Kaneki had a tendency to project the aspects of his personality he didn’t see fit for himself onto these shadows, in order to distance himself from them. That’s what happened at the end of TG. 

In order to deal with the trauma from his “loathsome past”, 

Kaneki’s mind resorted to amnesia as a coping mechanism. He projected the “darkness” inside himself onto the identity of Kaneki Ken and started anew. But Sasaki Haise was a dream, something unreal, just another coping mechanism. 

I think it’s interesting to note how these two pictures kind of parallel each other, supporting this theory:

The one on the left is from the same chapter in which we see Kaneki emprisoned in Cochlea after V14. The one on the right is a cover art of the EP containing the song. Judging by the art style, I believe it’s an official cover by Ishida. The only relevant difference is that in the cover art, the hands holding Kaneki’s face are Rize’s, but it doesn’t change much the interpretation since Rize has always symbolised the violent side of Kaneki.
