It's Friday Friday....err...I don't really remember the rest of that horrible song. But I am sure I did enough to make the awfulness stuck in your head. XD But yes folks it is Friday and a holiday weekend for a lot of people. Since I am currently working as a stay at home wife (IE super cleaner) this means little to me but a lot for the husband as he is Mine Crafting the weekend away. I keep looking over to his computer and I think I see aliens. That game is so weird.
Episode Summary: Toka takes a bite out of Kaneki's shoulder and she is able to summon up her massively cool kagune. She attacks Shu and he takes damage. He doesn't act too broken up about it as he is happy to see the return of strong Toka. Kaneki sorta stands there in awe of Toka being amazing. Shu senses he needs more power so he runs to take a bite out of Kimi. The barely alive Nishiki grabs Shu trying to save Kimi. Kimi starts to wake up as Nishiki gets his head stomped on a million more times. Before Nishiki is killed Toka jumps out of nowhere and I am assuming slices him in half starting at his head. He is like oh this will take a long time for me to heal, maybe I should eat you now Kaneki...and flops on the ground. Toka advises Shu should eat himself while Nishiki crawls up to a now awake Kimi. Toka then is like OH so she knows you and Nishiki are Ghouls I will kill her now. Nishiki looks rather..pensive while Kaneki tries to tell Toka that Kimi is his version of Hide and Yoriko. Toka attacks anyway and Nishiki uses his body as a shied. Kimi then sees Toka for the first time and calls her pretty. Toka runs off all upset at a human finding her pretty in that state. Kimi cries because Nishiki is okay (?) and Kaneki is acting like he doesn't have giant holes in his tummy. Hide comes to the cafe soon after and is surprised to find Nishiki working there. Turns out that he is working there to earn “food” since it wouldn't be good for Nishiki to hunt and date a human. Hide and Nishiki sorta talk about Toka for a bit who is not feeling well and isn't working there today. Hinami and her mother had been sitting nearby and Hinami gets upset that she can't see her dad and takes off upstairs. Hide questions what is going on while Nishiki tries to advert the attention off them. Kaneki sits down and basically the Mom is like woe is me being a single mom is sad. She worries about her husband and the situation he is in. Back at the “clinic” Dad is startled as Jason shows up and starts playing with Hinami's artwork. Dad gives Jason this weapon and wants to move on peacefully in life. Jason cracks his knuckles and decides that is not going to happen as the clinic fills with blood. At the cafe Mom explains to Kaneki how her husband used to be a Ghoul on the wrong side of the tracks but he changed his ways when Hinami came around. How lovely. Mom says she will handle this because she is the mom.
At the clinic Jason leaves the broken clinic to see crazy looking Mado and plain looking Amon waiting for him. Mado is especially thrilled to see such a top Ghoul. They transform their suitcases into some special kind of weapon that is personalized to each of them. They fight against Jason and Mado acts like he has a chance but really Jason is way too strong. Amon almost dies and Mado's weapon is completely broken. Jason walks away and promises more fun next time. Dad Doc has crawled out of the clinic clutching Hinami's picture. Mado bends down and calls Dad scum. Dad tries to use his kagune but he is killed. While all of this is going down Mom goes upstairs to talk to Hinami. Hinami is a kid and says some hateful things but eventually both of them cry it out as they just miss Dad. Mado and Amon see that Dad is holding a pic of the family and decide to use these arts as way to find other Ghouls. Kaneki sees the Mom and daughter make up and goes to see Toka. She refuses to open the door and Kaneki talks to her about how families make up and made Nishiki and Kimi can show everyone how humans and Ghouls can be together. He apologizes for bringing up Toka's friend but still feels as if the situation is the same in regards to Hide. Kaneki spends some time with Hinami helping her learn words and what not. He leaves so she can spend more time with her Mom. They decide to go out and get a new book to give to Dad later when things calm down. On the streets there are Doves holding Hinami's artwork and pics of her clothes comparing them to other mom and kids on the street. Hinami dances around after buying the new book for her dad while Mom notices all this funny business going down. She tries to get Hinami to walk away but then Hinami takes off as she think she smells her Dad. They end up in alley with Mado, Amon, and the two other Doves. Mado talks his crap and Mom uses her kagune like flower petals to pull Hinami close. She tells Hinami to run and she will join her later. Hinami cries but eventually leaves as mom turns full Ghoul. Mado says some crap about them not really being mom and daughter as Mom gets ticked. Hinami runs through the streets asking for help as Kaneki is seen walking maybe nearby? THE END!
Despite the fact that Toka has been given Kaneki a lot of crap about being a Ghoul and that he has a lot of things to learn Toka herself has hung ups about the whole Ghoul thing too. I am not seeing many Ghoul parents so I am guessing the life span of these creatures isn't long. You know with humans being afraid of them and all. Plus....they do look pretty messed up when they are transformed. In other shows with different creatures that are sorta human they find their appearance okay/better than humans. Toka doesn't share that thinking. Like no I look gross. Maybe Toka wants to be human. She is Ghoul and not proud. It probably took a lot in her to even attack the girl and then to stop because of the word pretty. Toka is going through a lot and needs some time to think about this all. How dare Kaneki come in and make Toka think about having a relationship with a human being and all this nonsense. Toka can take all the time in the world to think as I appreciate the fact she took a bit out of Kaneki and didn't lose her mind.
So while Toka is upstairs pondering about life and her role as a Ghoul Hide has come to visit his two friends at the cafe. And since Toka upstairs who is this other friend? Of course it is Nishiki. Of course it is guys. He has redemption now. He has a girlfriend whom he realized 5 minutes ago matters. Kaneki helping him touched his heart. Hide's head what? So yeah...Ghoul relationships seem to be a bit off since there are so few of them. They can't stay mad for long as they have to stick together against the humans. That is what I see happening. Since Nishiki and Toka didn't interact this episode it is hard to tell if things are 100 with them. I guess Kaneki is the one who needs to forgive more. Yay for Nishiki working there and Hide not asking many questions. So what did he overhear in the room that day?
