Ishida and his symbolism stuff etc. makes me crazy (in a good way of course).
We probably have Eto as the Tree of Life (Yggdrasil) (x) and the serpent in the Garden of Eden (x). She wrote a book called the “ The Hanged Man’s MacGuffin (x) and Kaneki is associated with the Hanged Man Tarot Number (you can see it on his arms (x)). Now the new book title of Eto is a reference to Odin (x) who is associated with the Hanged Man’s Tarot Card and Knowledge (x). The whole Garden of Eden story from the bible is associated with knowledge and apples symbolise it. Three people (Eto, Touka and Kaneki were shown with an apple in the manga or official art (x) (x)).
Symbolism, Symbolism, Symbolism ….THIS MANGA KILLS ME
