Tokyo Ghoul √A EP 10 End Cards + Anteiku ↳ The meaning of Anteiku remains a mystery. It is often translated as a pun; ‘antique’, in other language dubs because of similarity in sound and as a reference to Yoshimura keeping small antique coffee cups in a cupboard. Anteiku can also be written as “安定区” in Kanji, which literally means “peaceful ward” or “harmony zone”.
My name is Kaneki Ken. I’m eighteen year old. I used to be a normal human being. But not any more. I’m the One-Eyed Ghoul. I killed others to get stronger. And in this story where I am the protagonist, there is no other way to end it than in t r a g e d y.
Anteiku (あんていく) is a small neighbourhood cafe, at least on the surface. At the same time, it is also an organization of ghouls of the 20th Ward. It provides aid and food for ghouls in need, manages the feeding grounds of the ghouls in the 20th Ward and collects food for ghouls by searching for people who committed suicide.
