About Tokyo Ghoul

Tokyo Ghoul

The story introduces a dark and grim Tokyo, which is infested with bloodthirsty Ghouls that are living alongside humans without revealing their true identity. The people of Tokyo are in constant fear of being devoured by these Ghouls who could attack them at any instant. What’s the most dangerous thing about these Ghouls is that it’s hard to tell them apart from normal humans. 

Ken Kaneki is a timid and shy college student who comes across a Ghoul named Rize Kamishiro who had concealed herself as a human. As he’s walking home with Rize, she shows Kaneki her true colors and attacks him. However, Kaneki is saved by a waitress named Touka Kirishima.

Kaneki is now a half-human and half-ghoul as he was attacked by Rize. Now, he must live his new life and save himself from both humans as well as ghouls. Will he be able to survive and resist the urge to devour human flesh and blood?

Episode 13 (New Surge)

episode 13

Episode 13 is basically the first episode of the second season of Tokyo Ghoul. It introduces us to a new character named Hideyoshi Nagachika. He goes to Anteiku and finds it closed. He then rides his bike to look for Kaneki. Kaneki is in the 11th ward of the torture building and after fighting with Yamori, he walks out of the building, wearing his mask. 

Owl is able to recognize the ghoul investigator whom he came across 10 years ago and who took his arms. Shinohara and Iwao decide that they must kill Owl and start a fight with him. There are a lot of casualties and Owl manages to flee from the site. 

Touka Kirishima and Ayato Kirishima come across each other where the latter humiliates Touka and tells her that she has a weak Kagune. There’s a fight between the two and it is interrupted by Kankei. Kaneki attacks Ayato but Ayato is saved by Noro who takes him away from Kaneki. 

Kankei proceeds to take Touka away by carrying her and leaves with Nishiki. The building starts to crumble and the investigators try to leave the building before it crashes down. Kaneki comes across the dead bodies of the investigators who got caught in the crashing building. He notices Eto smiling at him. Kaneki leaves and goes to Touka who comments on his hair being too eye-catching.

She suggests to him that he should do something about his hair as it will gain a lot of unwanted attention. That’s when Kaneki tells Touka that he’s not going back to Anteiku and is joining Aogiri. He leaves and Touka tries to stop him but is too fatigued to go after him. She ends up collapsing. 


Episode 14 (Dancing Flowers)

They believe that he’s the one who has been leading the attacks.  Shinohara and Kuriowa talk about Owl in private after the meeting.

At School, Touka overhears some students talking about evacuations because of the recent ghoul attacks. The students also mention how they want all the ghouls to die. That leaves Touka bitter and sad. She walks home with Yoriko when Yoriko asks her the reason behind her wanting to go to Kamii University. Yoriko believes that she’s just following her boyfriend to the university. Touka is left dismayed.
