mouth’s cradle
you’ve been flirting again
mouth mantra
mutual core

The panel references elements of the music video. Touka's head is placed in front of a static "screen" same as Bjork in the video. The background also references the scenery in the music video, it's specifically shaped like a mountain/cliff like in the video. I recall Ishida also listening to that song in his twitch stream a while back. Some were also saying that was the song he was referencing in the Kirishima birthday art. I love Bjork, so I couldn't miss this reference lol

Thank you for clearing it up! The song is Hyperballad by Bjork, full music video here by the way. I understand what you’re getting at anon, that’s the exact same expression and I never thought of it until now but the background does look like static the same way we’re shown static and noise effects with Kaneki in the previous chapter. The face and the positioning of the body is near exactly the same too. 

The lyrics of Hyperballad also to a T basically describe what has been happening with Touka this 24th ward arc.

Every morning I walk towards the edge
And throw little things off
Like car-parts, bottles and cutlery
Or whatever I find lying around
It’s become a habit
A way to start the dayI go through all this
Before you wake up
So I can feel happier
To be safe up here with you

Making decision after decision to let the others around her sacrifice themselves for her and Kaneki’s sake, and at the end of it ending up alone. It begins with Yoriko, but then afterwards spirals:




All because she wants to continue to live happily with Kaneki.

Yet we see at the end of every corridor, it keeps amounting to nothing, and as I said in a previous meta, there really is no sacrifice Touka could make that would save her here, no piece of her self she could slice off that would make the CCG stop hunting her. It’s tragic because it’s all for naught. All of this is done out of pure hearted selflessness and the hope to be happy, but that’s not what a ghoul is allowed to have with the CCG still in charge of the world.
