Immortalis the Yellow Reaper. We don’t see much interaction/dialoge from him despite being a part of team, though we have recently learned a bit more about his Captain *wink wink*
I like to think Yellow Reapers are the hufflepuffs of the HSD world. They’re good humored, likeable, love being around others, and not picky or troublesome. Sadly they’re also overlooked and viewed as “not special” because they’re so common.
So I was looking through the spoilers and what people had to say. A lot brought up the theory that maybe kanekis mom didn’t die by “ Over working herself ”. And now in the Tokyo Ghoul mood I go to reread the latest chapter and see something I skipped over last time. He mentions “ Back then I got to meet the reaper! ”( yellow ) which I’m pretty sure he means Arima for obvious reasons. But what really caught my eye was “ Like the maggot mommy was, ”( red ) this is the first time we’ve really seen him say something bad about his mother. But back to the point, the “ I too…”( green ) and “ But I messed up and didn’t die. ” ( purple ). See now that gets me thinking, ’ What’s the rest of that sentence? ’ but putting all those things together especially Arima makes me believe the full sentence might be. “ I too was killed ”
Now here’s why. One as we know Arima “ killed ” Kaneki. Two he brought up his mother even though he didn’t particularly have to and added her in. Three the unfinished sentence could lead to many possible outcomes but I’ve always been one to pickup on messages of the surrounding text. Four he says “ I messed up and didn’t die. ”
Now if I put all it together it makes it almost confirm the possibility his mother was killed. If I had to re word it to show you what I mean try reading like this “ Like the maggot mommy was, I too was killed. But I messed up and didn’t die. ” seems to make a lot of sense.
