It’s Almost Time...
Tokyo Ghoul:re Chapter 142 is almost here (God help us all). Many are concerned with Hinami’s fate because the cliffhanger ends on a very dreary moment. The next chapter is the 9th chapter of the volume and it’s usually the breaking point. It could be a drastic event in more ways than one. Hinami is a character that has been around for so long that her death will devastate everyone. Ishida clearly knows this is the case and he has all of us like a damn fiddle.
The cliffhanger ends with a drastic strike that got people screaming. The moment of truth is in the next chapter. This technique is what always gets people worried because the next path could lead to the worst outcome. Plenty of writers use this technique to grasp your attention. Is it guaranteed death? It’s truly tricky because it can go one way or another.
Arima slit his throat…
And the follow-up is death.
Granted, that should be easy to tell, but Shirazu has this similar effect as well, and it led to his death. On the other hand, Yomo received a fatal blow.
Only to be saved in the end.
I could imagine a series of flashback with her before her fate reveals, which only adds more tension. It can be discouraging but you have to pull through and read it to the end. Which path Hinami will go to? The clock is ticking.
