I agree with you abt th plan possibly failing if anything we still have to solve the Quinx's situation. It's possible the plan may be divided into 2 parts. One part will be realized by the aces and the last part by the Quinx. I don't know, but the Quinx must necessarily have a part in this.
Yes, I agree. And I’m actually kind of laughing right now because you know me and my Mucchan love, but looking at this from a purely narrative perspective, Mutsuki is literally the reason I have hope both for Kaneki and a good story.
The Quinxes were created as a stopgap for Kaneki. The fact that Furuta thought of them when announcing his Dragon plan means that they should certainly have a role in dealing with Dragon.
Hide’s plan, on the other hand, from a narrative perspective, really should fail. The aces are not capable of helping Kaneki at this point in any way except in the short-term (which they might be able to do). But if you don’t address the faulty mindsets that got Kaneki into the place where he had no choice but ti slaughter 100 kids and turn into a giant worm eating Tokyo, why wouldn’t it happen again? It’s not like no one addressed his issues from Anteiku and he repeated that mistake again… oh wait.
The aces love Kaneki, and I think that’s beautiful. But their love right now looks like it’s not focused on addressing Kaneki’s flaws.
See, Shuu isn’t holding Kaneki accountable or even acknowledging Kaneki’s true attitude towards ghouls:
Hide is not either; he’s instead blaming himself and taking responsibility instead of acknowledging that Kaneki made his own choices:
Touka is the only ace whose opinion we have not heard, and tbh I do have some hope that she might be more willing to hold Ken accountable based on the fact that she did that the entire first TG, but we’ll see.
But the Quinxes?
Mutsuki is literally the only character in :re who has said “this isn’t okay” to Kaneki. He’s the only one who challenged Kaneki and tore apart his hypocritical way of relating to people:
No, the way Mutsuki’s been going about it has been 0% okay and he’s been in some ways blaming Touka rather than blaming Kaneki, but he’s at least saying this isn’t okay.
And Urie would be with Mucchan here. Urie isn’t nearly as close to Sasaki as the rest of them, but I’d be shocked if he didn’t hold Kaneki accountable. Saiko is the wild card. I don’t know what she’d do, but she did at least try to hold Mutsuki accountable for smelling like blood (well, she knew something was wrong at least) and did attack Urie and yell at him for his refusal to take responsibility for the CCG’s atrocities. Not that she took responsibility to do anything herself, she didn’t, but she is capable of holding people accountable.
Not to mention the Quinxes are the embodiments of Kaneki’s flaws.
If the story is going to be well-written and save Kaneki, the Quinxes are the ones who should do it.
Thank you for the ask!
