TG:RE is tiring me out
I have to make a post about this weeks chapter because this has me fucked up and i can’t be the only one. The chapter is actually a good build up for the arc but Ishida…really??? I normally don’t disagree with his writing and I don’t really care because my input doesn’t matter but…that ending has me fucked. The problem im seeing is the whole thing of getting Kaneki and Touka together. Fight me on this, but the timing is off. Personally I don’t think its right to have Kaneki be emotionally involved with someone when he cant sort out his own feelings of being suicidal (he still is) and being the one-eyeed king.
The whole thing is really rushed with him finally going back to RE, Touka having that “talk” with him which, honestly is ambushing him because he clearly hasn’t thought of them being together. Kaneki is clearly uncomfortable by the whole thing by repeatedly drinking out of an EMPTY cup.
But good for Touka for making her feelings clear to a guy she’s waited for years. They dont really go too deep about where their relationship stands, just briefly going over how Touka isnt okay with Kaneki continuous suicidal attempts but nothing more. In a way it seems Touka uses herself as a means for Kaneki to not leave her behind and that throws me off even more.
Moving on to the RE attack
and them both fleeing to safty. Both are distraught by their emotions and found
comfort with each other which is fine and all. I didn’t find a problem with the
chapter and thought it was actually really beautiful. Then the whole ring thing
MY GOD, REALLY???
They played it off as something just to give. Kaneki playing it and acting as he doesn’t know what type of ring it stands for is bullshit. The whole thing is downplayed and quick but bring it to this weeks and I’m actually over it. Again, they dont even talk about their relationship and where it is, they just move on.
Them being together is being too forced and the quick progression of their relationship and now seeing that Touka is pregnant is just… quick (I don’t have a better word for it). I get it they had sex without a condom and bam, a baby on the way but I mean, come on. People shouldn’t be happy over this, it’s a death flag. Thinking that Kaneki is emotionally able to care for a child, with a potential death flag, he’s going to be more distraught than before.
Seeing people ACTUALLY being excited over this baby is throwing me off. IT’S A DEATH FLAG. TOUKA ALREADY HAD A DEATH FLAG ON HERSELF AND NOW SHE HAS ANOTHER ONE. I’m just over this whole “Kaneki and Touka getting together” thing. Im not against them being together I’m just against the relationship progressing quickly from, ambushed confession, sex, heres a ring, and then baby.
