There's something not right about Arima's art for vol 11. Have u seen his left bloodied eye? only Mtsuki and and Arima has blood on their art. And coincidentally the blood is on both of their left eyes. Now we know that Mtsuki has some job to do (taking Kaneki back). His art can mean he'll get hurt or killed but Arima is already dead so what is his art implying? The whole jp fandom is going crazy over this! I'm surprised that u guys r still not talking about it (sorry for my bad English!😅)
Oh oh yes I’ve seen the art!
(rip I just realised you can’t even really see the red smear across Arima’s eyes here)
I didn’t realise there were theories about a possible connection between the 2 though!
With Arima’s art, I think it’s a pretty clear throwback to his volume cover in TG
and how that eye was always shaded differently- both representing his failing eyesight and symbolizing his role as the OEK.
With Mutsuki’s cover, I had assumed that the one eye being obscured and the wing over one shoulder was a reference to Touka and what happened in the volume- Mutsuki’s jealousy and the plan to take her out. Almost like Mucchan was emulating Touka, as he wants to be the one receiving Sasaki’s attentions.
I’m dying to hear what the JP fandom thinks though! I’m intrigued now :’D
