I’m going to continue pursuing ghouls, moving from place to place. It’s been a while since I spoke to someone from the same generation. Although I wasn’t quite able to live a ‘normal’ school life. It was surprisingly fun.

I’ve always found Kaneki’s eyepatch-progression very interesting. As a human post-operation, his eyepatch covers his single kakugan: he is human. During this time as well, his ghoul mask covers his human eye: he masquerades as a ghoul. When he becomes a half-kakuja, his kagune-mask covers his kakugan, revealing his human eye. In this sense, he is now a ghoul masquerading as a human, just like any other ghoul. However, the shape of his kagune mask mimics that of three eyes. It is easier to see, but it looks like (to me at least) a combination of his three personas, human, half-ghoul, ghoul, with three eyes: human on the left, with two kakugan to the right. You could make the claim that each of these symbolizes one of his three personas (human, ghoul, half-ghoul), or you could say that it only furthers the theme that he has become more ghoul than human, having double the amount of ghoul than human eyes. This would extend the power of the last thing he said before going ham on Yamori, “I am a ghoul”, by showing that in fact he retains his humanity: he still possess that human eye.

Summary: I love Ishida’s use of symbolism, especially when drawing on the eyes/eyepatch theme. He’s a genius.

Tokyo Ghoul :re Chapter 102 Spoilers

Nico: Nfu.. ♡
Banjou: Nico….bastard….how did you get in..
Nishiki: Your outfit is like that from a dream…
Nico: You cant do that, clowns are ghouls that create surprises…if you are gonna get detained you need to hide those properly
Roma: Ha..hiik…eek…..
Roma who is being detained in the other room, there are some small kagunes coming out from her body. Nico picks up those small kagunes.
Nico: I can feel Roma’s SOS through these kagunes
When Nico is about to step in further, Seidou goes in front and stop Nico
Seidou: …dont come nearer
Nico: Ohmy, so scary. This is bad for my important part (heart)…
Banjou: …are you here for Roma?
Nico: Roma huh..she was really stupid when she got caught in Cochlea…but thats not it..even if Roma chan is being tortured or abused, I have no interest
Roma is still letting out those small kagunes
Roma: (Im counting on you, okama-)
Nico: I am just here to flatter your King and help out a bit
Banjou: Flatter…?
Nishiki: I dont think anyone stupid would want the flattery from some unknown person
Nico: Oh my dear Glasses kun, I wonder if I should flatter your girlfriend too…  ♡
Nishiki:
Nico looks at Akira
Nico: Fu-n….this girl, is going to die
Seidou: !
Nico: Banjouu kun, you have never treated human before right
Seidou:
Nico: You can see it right
Banjou:
Nico: There is a knack to everything. If you do it blindly, no one would feel good right? Nfu  ♡
Nico thinks back of the past
Nico: I am one too. Like Yamori who played~with humans before, I went through a lot too you know…?
Banjou: … (Its true that Nico is more experienced than I am…)
Banjou: Can you heal her
Nico: No cant do, but there is a way
Banjou: A way…?
Nico: Yes, really simple…  ♡  Just get a doctor to treat her
Nishiki: Wha-?
Banjou: …are you kidding…
Nico: I am serious
Nico laughs
Nico: Even though Banjou kun’s method is abit harsh, but he can heal her properly, but the problems lie after  ♡  If we remove the RC cells inside, and treat her normally will do  ♪
Banjou: Normally…
Seidou: …We cant go do the hospital…She shielded me, and broke the law. If we go to the hospital….
Nico: Who says we are going to the hospital? We need a doctor, but…we need one that understands the body of a ghoul. I have two suggestions,  ① Akihiro Kanou
Banjou them: !!…
Nico: Human, ghoul, he knows them all, saving this girl would be easy
Nishiki: Kanou…
Banjou: ….
Nico: Let me introduce a friend of clowns
Seidou: Hey kama bastard, will he help us
Nico: Oh why? I think it depends on the condition no-? Well, the safety is x
Nishiki: We all know that is impossible… how about  ②
Nico: Nfu  ♡ ② ♡
Nico takes out a name card

Naki is going somewhere with an angry face
Miza, Hooguro, Shousei are following behind
Miza: Naki!
Hooguro: Big bro…!
Naki kicks the door open, and inside the room are a huge load of white suits and Tsukiyama
Tsukiyama: Oui
Naki: Tsuchiyama!
Tsukiyama: Tsukiyama
Naki: What are you planning to do with all these white suits?
Tsukiyama: …you did not join in our alliance? Thats a secret!
Naki: Those white suits are our pride, I dont know what you are planning to do, but if you simply do this, I cant keep my silence!
Tsukiyama: I am just doing the preparation, if you wish to know why, just go and ask him?
Naki: …!
Kaneki is standing behind
Kaneki: …we will use these suits in our strategy, I would like to have your cooperation… I wanted to let Miza san to brief it to you all…have you learn of the strategy?
Miza: No..he ran out while we were talking about it…sorry
Kaneki: I will explain
Naki: No need, I wont help you bastard. Working with the bastard that killed big bro, its not our stile!
Kaneki: ….style…is it. “Maybe us ghouls were meant to kill each other”…this is what Yamori said…Its true that I killed Yamori….but, I only wish to survived then I overpower “Yamori’s style”. Naki san, I need the power of white suits. With your style, what could I do to let you all follow me?
Naki changes expression
Naki: …the way of 13rd ward is easy, the strong says it all
Kaneki: ….is that so, then come at me….you wanted to kil lme right?
Kaneki cracks his fingers
Naki: Thats—right!! Raaaahhhhh!!!
Miza: Na…
Shousei stops Miza who was going to stop Naki
Miza: !
Shousei: Doing so is an insult to big bro, Miza
Miza: ….sorry… (but the opponent is….that Kaneki Ken…)

Naki rushes towards Kaneki
Naki: Orah!!
Kaneki dodges and kicks Naki in the stomach
Naki: Uwah…! Gahh!!
Kaneki blocks his attack
Kaneki: Is the leader of white suits only has such power, this is not even the level of Yamori’s feet
Naki: …tch
Shousei & Hooguro:
Tsukiyama: (good)
Naki: I know that!!!
Kaneki dodges Naki’s attack, but Naki rushes forward
Naki caught Kaneki’s ankle
Naki: Caught youuuu!!!
Kaneki turns his body *just like the time when he fought with Yamori*
Naki: !! Gehh!! Doesnt it hurt!!
Kaneki: Yes
Kaneki, smiling, and kicks Naki to the wall
Naki: Uwah!!
Kaneki releases his kagune
Naki: (….aah, its aniki’s kagune….)
Naki cries
Kaneki: …do you want to continue
Naki loses the will to fight
Naki: ….just as promised, from today onwards, you are the leader of white suits…
Kaneki: No…I did not intent for that…. *sweat*
Naki: Is Aniki living….inside you…?
Kaneki: …I ate his kagune before, I think its an image… To me, Yamori is a symbol of “power” after all
Naki:
Kaneki: Naki san, rather than letting the white suits to die scattered-ly, please die by my side, and I will fight for you all
Kaneki extends his hand
Naki: ….fulfilling promises is one of 13rd ward’s stile….suits, teach me how to use them
Naki takes Kaneki’s hand

Nishiki: Its good, Naki them are all in this fight with us
Kaneki: …it saves us, white suits has a lot of members, it will be a powerful addition to our strategy
Nishiki: …this, I told you about it, Oukan Act
Nishiki takes out the namecard, Yamamoto Jiiro
Kaneki: Ghoul Support Organisation…is it
Nishiki: Aa, seems like that organisation is being controlled, to hold an activity to oppose, I heard that there are medical teams over there, it seems like some rubbish religion, but it is one of whats left from Takatsuki’s influencial
Kaneki:
Nishiki: And dont know if that Okama bastard will leak this place out
Kaneki: …if they want to ambush us, it would have happened already. We will need to leave eventually, but it is alright now. I think Nico probably is taking action separately from Fura…
Nishiki: Is that so…what are we going to do? with that
Kaneki: ….try to contact
Kaneki goes and see Akira… and Akira who seems to be in pain
Kaneki: (Please wait a little more…Akira san…)

Kaneki moving to the meeting spot
Nishiki: Its good that we started moving, but what if we fell into their trap
Kaneki: Isnt that good, gathering the ones who set up the traps is useful
Tsukiyama: Fu, nice imaginationI. Kaneki kun
Nishiki: How did you cover for the expenses of white suits
Tsukiyama: Teeko gathered the money
Man: …good evening
Kaneki: !
Man: I am Oukan Act’s Ogura
