If you ever feel bad about your job performance remember that for all 8 years of his presidency George Washington had to write his constitutional responsibilities on the palm of his hand and frequently checked it during cabinet meetings.
Something that I REALLY liked about this chapter was the fact that right after Kaneki says he feels lonely (and Akira admitting that she feels lonely too), the next thing that happens is that she opens up to Amon, tells him how she feels, and Amon talks about loneliness too.
Akira thought (just as Kaneki did) that she was lonely, but Amon made her see that she’s not lonely at all, she has him, and as long as both are together and helping each other out, they don’t have to feel empty. They are alive, they are together…
and I feel like Amon’s feelings expose Kaneki’s feelings too? Kaneki feels extremely lonely as well and I’m just extremely amazed by how Akiramon’s relationship is foreshadowing many things between Touka and Kaneki. Akira is not alone because Amon is there for her, he made her see that, and I feel like Touka is trying to do the same thing with Kaneki… telling him that he’s not alone, he doesn’t have to feel empty because he’s alive, both are alive, and as long as he “comes back home”, everything will be alright. Akira got her answer in this scene with Amon after expressing her feelings, and I feel like Kaneki might have his answer to the same question as well in the next chapter with the touken talk.
