I’m scrolling through facebook today and saw this on my newsfeed, decided to read what it’s all about and found out that some fans were really upset about the latest chapter hinting the possibility of Touka and Kaneki ending up with each other (pls correct me if I’m wrong). Okay, so I’m not really following the manga and I only watched the first season of Tokyo Ghoul so I don’t feel like I have all the rights to rant since I’m not as emotionally invested to this anime/manga as the other fans. But I think wishing someone to die just because their ship got destroyed is a bit overboard.
I admit, I don’t like Touka at all. I’m not really into Yaoi but I would probably prefer Hide over her for Kaneki. So I really feel for the fans who are a hardcore HidexKaneki shipper. Trust me, I know the feeling. I was so devastated when Naruto ended up with Hinata, (yes I’m one of those few who wanted Naruto to end up with Sakura) followed by Ichigo ending up with Orihime. And now I’m so heartbroken because I’m a big EreMika shipper but with how the AoT manga is going, it’s nowhere near they will end up together. But I have never once wished for these authors to commit suicide. This is just so wrong.
I know some fans might really be upset, but we have to understand that the authors can’t give us everything we want. Let’s just appreciate their efforts because we don’t know how much our words could affect someone.
