I’ve been thinking about how Kaneki’s mind set will have altered thanks to Chapter 122, and I think I can safely say there’s an upside and a downside to the recent developments.
The upside? Well, Kaneki has finally been pushed out of his little bubble of unhealthy thoughts, at least for the most part. Now he should be aware how important his own life is to others, and he should also now be aware that distancing himself from others isn’t going to help them in the slightest (it appears that Kaneki has already begun demonstrating this awareness).
That’s all sunshine and rainbows, however the downside to this is that Kaneki has likely made himself extremely vulnerable to Touka’s closeness, which by itself is a definitely a positive thing for both of them. The real problem here is if anything hazardous or potentially life threatening happens to Touka from this point onward. To me it seems very likely that Kaneki would end up going rampant in Kakuja form again, and this time his whole body will be clad in armour, which could potentially be devastating for everyone.
Back when Kaneki lost control after his very first Kakuja emergence, he presented a lot of danger not only to his enemies but to his friends as well. Luckily Kaneki snapped out of it before any of his friends were killed (aka Banjou Ex Machina). This time however that must not be allowed to happen, otherwise Kaneki could become far too dangerous for anyone to deal with, considering the vast amount of power he has obtained since way back then.
Long story short, please nobody touch Touka (And especially you Mutsuki), otherwise Tokyo might be dealing with a more threatening monster than we’ve ever seen in Tokyo Ghoul.
…Aside Furuta, of course.
