3 THINGS THAT I’M SLIGHTLY CONCERNED ABOUT IN ‘TOKYO GHOUL RE:’

*Spoilers ahead*

Okay, so when I say ‘concerned’ I mean ‘things that I’m not particularly liking a whole lot’ and ‘I hope that I can get over this stuff despite my pettiness and aversion to accept things don’t go in a way that I can accept’ and ‘I think my lack of emotional investment in this manga at the moment is currently making my judgement quite illogical.’

  1. Hide’s character

    He was perfect. And he’s still perfect. He will always be perfect. You can’t change me mind.
    But it’s still all too confusing for meeeeeeee!!! I need someone to do up an in-depth analysis of his character, a relationship chart between Hide and every single character in the series that he’s interacted with and a timeline of the events that have occurred throughout his life. He seems fine, but then he seems dodgy too. Plus is he or isn’t he being set up to be an antagonist? I don’t know and it’s hurting my brain! >_<

  2. The actual storyline

    Re has some really cool scenes and stuff in it, you know? But the storyline isn’t exactly as thrilling to me anymore as it used to be… I don’t know, maybe I just need to reread it at least from root A again to get more emotionally involved in the series (because if it doesn’t make me feel anything then chances are I’m not going to like it a lot).
    But my negativity could also stem from how my poor baby Tsukiyama has been recently. I want him to have all the happiness.

  3. The whole Touka x Keneki thing

    I don’t know… I’m not against it or anything, but maybe some more development throughout the earlier arcs would have been nice between them? Or maybe there was a hell of a lot of tension between them and I’m just blind and didn’t pick up on it? Sometimes I struggle to pick on stuff when it’s low-key so…
    And the whole pregnancy thing is something I struggled to read, though I think that’s just because I’m struggling to relate to Touka’s way of thinking. I can understand that she thought it would be another ‘stressful’ thing for Kaneki to deal with and that is probably why she was pretty defensive about it. But although she did tell Keneki in the end, she didn’t really want to… And like I said, I’m struggling to understand Touka because I value communication a lot so hiding this sort of thing, even if the likelihood of the pregnancy being successful is slim and it could be another burden for the partner, is something I’d still want them to know about. Because I think that they have the right to know about a little person that they helped create. So these values aren’t exactly helping me like Touka’s character more, especially because I wasn’t that fond of her to start with.
    And the marriage part was a bit too sudden for me. But like I said before, that could be because I’m useless at picking up hints. But this could also just because I don’t think that couples should get married just being they’re expecting a child. I don’t know if this was one of the reasons why Kaneki wanted to marry Touka, but I think they should get married solely because they want to – not because Touka’s expecting.

    So yeah, in conclusion, I am a biased person. I’m struggling to understand Touka at the moment and I think I just want more clarification about all of the characters’ mind states, thoughts and feelings. And this is why I will now be devoting a good chunk of my time to going through analyses on Tumblr.

    I read TG:re and up until the latest chapter and can’t help but agree to most of what you said. Tsukiyama’s arc / storyline was so promising to me at first but now.. not really. I’m also sooooo darn confused about Hide too? Like is he a martyr or what, or just a loyal friend (or maybe more) towards Kaneki.. And Touka’s case, well I have no words for that one. But I remember I liked the drawing at that one page when they were wed — ghoul style

    I’m not sure but I may be regretting my decision to read the series. 😛

      Yay, I’m glad we’re in the same boat!
      I’m really glad that Tsukiyama though did at least receive his own little series, because he’s one of the most interesting characters and there’s so much more that RE: could be doing with him!
      Ikr!!! I think Hide is a martyr, but then there’s so much stuff about him lying to Kaneki for unknown reasons and then foreshadowing in previous chapters about his being against Kaneki?!
      Ooh yep that wedding thing did look really cool though! 🙂
