btw, I’m guessing there’s something extra special about Eto/Yoshimura’s kagune. I still have Amon and Takizawa to take into consideration, but I’m sure you guys noticed the scar on Kaneki’s ribs this chapter, right?
It’s from the Owl quinque.
Kaneki was all healed up by the time he fought Arima in V14, and Haise had no marks when we saw his stomach during the Auction Raid. It seems like he was regenerating just fine with Rize’s super-kagune, right up until his hand was taken off by Kanae (who had Eto’s “strength”).
He lost his:
- right hand = Kanea (vicariously Eto, followed by eating her kagune)
- both legs = IXA - grew back normally
- left hand = Owl
- right ribs = Owl
Everything other than that was “minor” slices and plain kagune being sloughed off, so it all ended up healing regularly. Everything that involved Eto or the Owl quinque, however, are scarred.
So maybe there’s something even more important behind that quinque that Arima knew would (hopefully) help Kaneki in the future somehow. I wonder what they can do…
