At first I had a knee-jerk shock because… no chapter context, Hak’s bare hotness out in the open, another girl touching him, Yona with a yet to be unpacked reaction from behind a tree.
Then I was like, NO BIG DEAL people. I saw more pages. Yona might just be worried about his general state of mind. Look at he and Ayame’s faces anyway. He’s like all serious. She’s like just going about her work. Plus, I mean, check out the necklace bae is sporting…
But then… I looked a bit longer (note to self: don’t do that). And I discovered…
I definitely did not notice that direct eye line before. I thought he was off in his head being mad. But now I can’t unsee Exhibit B. Because he totes Exhibit C’ed before…
So now I want to smack Hak. I mean, he’s done the same to Yona. He’s a boy without a whole lot to look at in that moment. He still technically could not have been looking at Ayame’s bust. But Kusanagi… you devious mangaka, I wish you’d drawn him like looking forward or up at the sky or something!!
And after all that, let me confirm, I 1) have not read the chapter in English, 2) don’t think anything is actually gonna happen with Ayame in any capacity whatsoever, and 3) know there are Exhibits A through infinity from this manga of how much Hak and Yona love each other.
This frame just fucked with me a little. Probably on purpose. That is all ^^;
HOLY SHIT IM CRYING, IM SHIVERING, THERE ARE BUTTERLFLIES IN MY STOMACH, MY CHEST IS TINGLY RN, IM SO HAPPY, IM SO EXCITED, AND IM JUMPING WITH JOY RIGHT NOW. IM SQUEALING IN DELIGHT, THIS IS LITERALLY WHAT IVE BEEN WAITING FOR FOR 150 CHAPS OMG, THEY ACTUALLY SAID IT OUT LOUD OMG.
Chapter is just absolutely fantastic, I’m so so happy he kissed her even tho he’s feeling extremely helpless and down, I think he hit his limit and hanmi came for him which probably triggered this, nevertheless this is the best that I could have hoped for, I needed a big push in their relationship, THIS IS IT. PLEASE LET THIS BE THE START OF THEM PLEASE WILLOW I BEG YOU.
CAN WE JUST talk about how he gripped her hair / face / neck and just went in for the kiss, and he looks down to her face with that blush, ahhhhhh~~~~ I’m going crazy~~~~~~

Pg 1: Kanou’s researchers and CCG members sit around a table
discussing how to combat Kaneki. One member says that if it continues it will
go wild to compensate for energy loss and could take out the entire 23rd
ward. Kimi holds up a folded paper crane
and says that that kagune is like it.
Pg 2: She says that the surface area of a paper crane is 40%
of the original paper and if it’s unfolded it’s 2.5 time the size of the
original paper. She says that the origami crane is like a kagune, where a large
collapsible physical structure is hidden within it. She says that because
Kaneki took in a large number of kakuhou then it should have a large number of “paper
cranes” inside. Marude asks her what they should do.
Pg 3: Kimi says that the kagune is spread out over a large
area but from within there should be a body that it originates from. She tells
him that if they take the main body out then the kagune will break down but it
will be difficult to find. She says that they could also wait for it to die out
naturally because the RC cells have a structure similar to telomeres and have a
finite number of times they can divide. They ask her how long until the kagune
starts to break down.
Pg 4: Kimi answers that it will take about 200 years. Marude
asks where the main body is and is suddenly interrupted by an investigator
telling him they are in trouble. Downstairs a number of CCG members are banded
Pg 5: They say that there are ghouls within the gate. The
CCG members nervously stand prepared to attack. Urie and Saiko wonder why they
are there. Marude sees the ghoul and tells his men to attack them.
Pg 6: Marude sees Hide, Amon, and Akira standing with the
ghouls. He wonders what Hide is doing.
Pg 7: One of the investigators notices Amon and is surprised
he’s still alive. Marude asks Hide what he’s doing and Hide says that he
brought people to help. He says that they need people to help dig up the main
body and there are limits to humans. Marude gets angry and asks him if he’s
expecting him to work with ghouls.
Pg 8: Hide says that he is. He says that the main body is
Kaneki Ken and the ghouls will cooperate to help him. The CCG become shocked
that the One-Eyed King is the source of the main body. The men begin panicking
because they believed that Kaneki was executed by Furuta.
Pg 9: Ui enters with Hirako and the remaining Squad 0
member. He says that Furuta has stepped down and that he used the CCG for his
personal gain and falsely executed Kaneki to gain their trust. He says that
Furuta’s original plan was to create the monster and they were all blind to his
Pg 10: Ui asks if he came back to ghouls and humans working
together as well as Marude and Amon coming back from the dead. He says that if
that’s the case then he wants Arima and Hairu to come back too. He asks Hide if
he’s going to dig out Kaneki alongside the CCG. Ui says that it’s impossible
for humans and ghouls to work together and asks Marude if he agrees.
Pg 11: Ui tells the ghouls to leave before they are killed.
Amon asks Ui what the important thing to an investigator is. Ui answers that it
is exterminating ghouls and Amon tells him that he’s wrong.
Pg 12: Amon says that the most important thing is that the
CCG fights to maintain peace. He says that they have to fight with the ghouls.
Saiko raises her hand and says that she will accept help from the ghouls.
Pg 13: Saiko says that she will fight alongside them. The other Quinx members agree with her. Other
investigators become riled up at the thought of working with ghouls.
Pg 14: All of the ghouls suddenly throw away their masks and
reveal their faces to the CCG members.
Pg 15: Touka says that their pride as investigators is a
load of bullshit. She says that they are going to do whatever it takes. Juuzou
approaches the crowd.
Pg 16: Juuzou says that they should accept the help from the
ghouls because that’s what Shinohara would do. Marude tells Juuzou to make his
own decisions because he’s an adult.
Pg 17: Marude tells him that if he says that he wants to
work with the ghouls the entire CCG would follow. Juuzou says that they should
Pg 18: Juuzou says that it will be easier that way. Everyone
accepts this decision and the ghouls smile, relieved.
It’s from Chapter 150 when Ren says that he was going to give Kyoko the same kind of kiss that Sho was, because he wanted to replace the memory with his own kiss. He’s imagining was he *was* going to do before he considered her feelings and kissed her cheek.
It’s additional art that Nakamura-sensei often adds to empty panels when the tankoubon volumes are released. Now is the perfect time to remind everyone to support the author by purchasing the licensed material. On occasion, we get goodies like this! :D
I know that many people seem disappointed with the recent chapter, but knowing Ishida, some conflict is bound to happen.
But right now? I just wanna enjoy the small relief of a chapter before all hell breaks loose.
I don’t care if one character seemed bland or one character wasn’t that great or whatever. Just enjoy it cause I know that a lot of you are gonna beg (jokingly or not) for a happy ending once the possibility is taken away from you.
