Tokyo Ghoul √A episode 08
Another great episode. So what if there wasn’t a lot of action? It continued something of much more value. You can’t love a show where there’s fighting during every single episode. You need to mix things up a little bit.
This episode was perfect for that. We basically got a little history lesson about the old man and how he used to live his life. He was all alone and only cared for his own survival. He killed and killed until he came across a young woman whom ended up stealing his heart. They lived together and did a lot of things together, including making a child together, which led to them being targeted for doing this impossible. A child from both a Ghoul and a human was supposedly impossible, yet they did it and the woman got killed for it and the child now missing.
It was a very interesting story and the old man lived a very interesting live. It’s too bad that they didn’t actually show us how he became a Ghoul, but that’s alright. It was quite interesting to see how he lived and why he changed to become the man he is today. It’s no wonder that other Ghouls choose to follow him out of their own free wills.
Nevertheless, he may have lived the last part of his life as peacefully as he possibly could considering the circumstances, but he and his friends are still Ghouls, which has caught the attention of the local authorities. The next episode should prove to be quite interesting as both the old man and his friends will have to defend themselves against many, many Ghoul-killing soldiers.
