‘Ipet-Resyt’ Temple of the God Amon at 'Uaset’-Thebes (“the Luxor Temple”): detail of one of the two colossal votive statues of King Ramses II enthroned located in “the Great Court of Ramses II” (the First Court) and flanking the entrance leading to the Double Colonnade. The King is represented wearing the Nemes with the Uraeus and the Double Crown
Kaneki stayed with his mask until the end of his fight with Amon in the manga. Now, in the anime, kaneki took off his mask, and you’re not supposed to do that, ever. This shows the amount of trust kaneki has for Amon.
AND NOW HIS ASKING FOR HIS NAME. (the fucking feels, even tho in the manga it was much more dramatic, with tears falling from kaneki’s eyes while smiling.)
The thing with this shot, is that it’s done perfectly, it’s really clever. Kaneki looking up to meet Amon’s gaze, with his innocent, beautiful eyes (As if, accepting that he just showed his identity to a CCG, a complete stranger) with that sweet voice of his asking for Amon’s name so formally, and the smoke covering only his ghoul side so he can only look at his human side makes it all the more difficult for Amon to be rude towards him.
What I really liked about this one, is that, in the manga, Amon is downright rude to kaneki when talking to him. He said something like “Don’t fuck with me you ghoul bastard” In the anime, Amon, without hesitation said his name.
AND THEN (sorry I don’t have a gif for this one) kaneki looks down, the smoke covering his mouth, and Amon TWITCHES, I know this may sound really exaggerated, but, Amon kinda likes, observes kaneki at that part, as if he did something for Amon to pay closer attention or something. (maybe kaneki smiled?)
AND LATER ON, Kaneki and Amon fight, with kaneki’s hair covering his eyes (maybe because he’s ashamed of himself?). 100% knowing about their “enemy”, Kaneki saying that he doesn’t want to fight Amon, and Amon just wanting to talk to the poor guy, wishing they had met some other way.
MAN, what can I say about this scene, perfect.
I JUST WANT MORE LOVE FOR THIS TWO AKWARD BABIES. (Gifs are not mine)

What I got from Tokyo Ghoul:
- CENTIPEDE TORTURE
- eye gore
- gross crying
- did I mention CENTIPEDES
- limbs getting ripped off
- people biting into other people
- questionable morals
- psychological torment
- commentary about self-sacrifice so strong that it made me reconsider my own opinions about the subject
- and a lot of dead main characters
