TG chapter 136 || TG:re chapter 68
Ok, at this point, Hide is basically the Schrödinger’s cat
I still don’t think Hide is dead. He’s off screen after that scene. Besides, he always showed up everywhere or had a hand on something back in TG, I think his role is bigger than just being Kaneki’s last supper before meeting with the Reaper.
And there’s some translations that I don’t agree… in the japanese raw, Kaneki said, “誰かの為に（カッコ良く） 命を懸けてみたい（死にたい）” which is roughly translated as “I want to put my life on the line (to die) for someone else’ sake (in style).” correct me if I’m wrong.
That being said, Hide might still be alive. What I see there, in his words, Kaneki add his own interpretation of “putting life on the line” and “for someone else’ sake” which says a lot about his mental state at the moment in my opinion. Because not only he believes he killed Amon, he also believes he ate his best friend. No wonder he’s suicidal.
And I believe he still has no clue who it was that sent him that Hangman’s McGuffin book while all
evidence theory speculations lead to Hide.
The last time we see Hide in TG is on chapter 136, the first time we see Hide in TG:re is on chapter 68… 136:2=68, lol I don’t know why I put maths in this crazy ride. But, if we go with Ishida’s palindrome, I think we would get more of Hide in chapters to come………..
