Tokyo Ghoul episode 04
Do you know what I hate about Tokyo Ghoul? The pace. It’s too damn slow. Ken still doesn’t know anything. He knows nothing about how the Ghoul world works and has no idea how to defend himself or remain in control when his Ghoul side takes over.
I do like the fact that everything’s so detailed. A few episodes ago they focused on how Ghouls can’t eat human food without getting sick, so they have to pretend to eat it and barf it up afterwards. Digesting it could prove dangerous. Touka ate a bit what her friend prepared for her and she insisted on digesting it. She did not want to spit it out because it was her friend that gave it to her. Now that is impressive! They focus on how rough it is on Ghouls and what it could do to them, yet Touka went through with it. I wonder if she actually could get sick from a small bite like that.
So this guy, Shuu, shows up and wants to be friends with Ken. Never mind the possibility of Ken being the strongest creature out there. I want to know how Ken can be so incredibly naïve. He knew that he was following a Ghoul… Did he learn absolutely nothing from his encounters with Rize or Nishiki? It’s about time he grew up a bit.
I’m also a little bit disappointed in his lack of ability. He loses control quite easily when he is in danger (probably survival instinct), but he has no control and he has no idea how to use that power. He’s like a little boy with a hand grenade. Renji needs to train him more in order to prepare him for what’s out there. Ken stands no chance right now.
