Even if time has passed, even if our bodies have changed, even if he’d forgotten me completely…as long as he came home, things’ll be alright.”

Amon Amarth - Twilight of the Thunder God

There comes Fenris Twin
His jaws are open wide
The serpent rises from the waves
Jormundgandr twists and turns,
mighty in his wrath
The eyes are full of primal hate

Thor, Odin’s son, protector of mankind
Ride to meet your fate, your destiny awaits
Thor, Hlôdyn’s son, protector of mankind,
Ride to meet your fate, Ragnarök awaits …

Hymn to Amun

To Amun, self-created king of gods, I offer my praise.
O well-crowned god of air and sky, wearer of the two plumes,
Consort of great-hearted Mut who is best of mothers,
Father of Khonsu who carries the shining moon;
O Amun who bears many names, who is great of might
and great of renown, whose temples yet stand strong,
O god who is hidden and who yet is revealed
to those who seek your goodness and your gifts,
O god who is unseen and who is all-encompassing,
through whom all that may and may not be, may yet become,
O god of the curling horn, god of the soul
who holds the ba in hand, I honor you.
We know you in each cooling breeze, each breath we take
to sustain our lives; we know you with each exhalation.
I call out to you with a firm voice and a full heart.


No, but like,

Can we talk about this scene?


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'll go out on a limb and here regarding Touka giving Kaneki the ring and say that Ishida is using it as a signal to bring a confirmation of Arata's fate (maybe Hikar's as well, Hairu's T-Human quinque looks like a mass produced model like the Arata armors). Ishida brings it to our attention for a purpose, and I think its about time we got an idea as to how the CCG produce the arata armors if he is not alive.

That could be so, but I think the most important point of it is exactly what Touka says about it: 

“It gave me strength”.

Sources of strength represented in material ways has been a running theme through :re for a little while now, and it’s one of the most subtly beautiful things, in my opinion, for Ishida to bring into play. 

This ring, Amon’s cross, and Arima’s tie pin all hold the same meaning: that it gave the person strength. But the strength itself doesn’t come from the object, it comes from what the object represents, which is always love.

  • The cross → God (Amon) → Amon, Akira (Takizawa)
  • The pin → Haise (Arima) →  Arima (Kaneki)

  • The ring → Hikari (Arata) → Parents (Touka) → Touka (Kaneki)

As beautiful as that all is, it’s extremely ominous for Touka to have given that to Kaneki. It feels like a trial is coming up for him, especially with that centipede by their feet :’(
