Tokyo Ghoul episode 05
Damn you! Damn you to hell and beyond! It’s hard for me to wait a week for another episode of Tokyo Ghoul to begin with, but now they end this episode with a huge cliff-hanger where Touka is about to show us her abilities.
I was actually a bit surprised to learn that Touka really did get sick from eating her friend’s human food. I thought it was Touka, you know? It’s Touka, a powerful and experienced Ghoul. She wouldn’t get sick from one bite of human food I thought. Boy, she definitely got sick alright. She even ended up staying home instead of going to school.
I was also a bit surprised to find out that Nishiki, the guy that tried to kill Ken and his best friend, was still alive after Ken defeated him. I don’t like him. I don’t think I’ll ever like that character. So what if he is friends with a human girl and that he wants to keep her safe at all cost? That doesn’t change what he did to Ken and his friend. What goes around comes around.
So this sick Ghoul, Shuu Tsukiyama, is still completely obsessed with Ken. He wants nothing more than to find a perfect time and place to eat him up. Nothing is too small or expensive or dangerous for him to achieve just that. I mean, he kidnapped Nishiki’s girlfriend in order to lure Ken over. His plan was to eat Ken while Ken eats her. How messed up is that?
I’ll just leave it at that. I won’t go on about Shuu’s insanity. I just want to see what Touka is capable of. She is definitely stronger than Nishiki, but is she stronger than that insane pervert? We’ll find out next week, but I want to know now. I want to see what Touka can do, how her power works and how Ken reacts to that… God… Please let this week go by fast.
