Feeding Ground (喰場, Kuiba) is the fifth chapter of the manga Tokyo Ghoul.



Nishiki Nishio starts to assess Ken Kaneki, concluding that he is indeed a ghoul after he had purchased so much coffee from the store. Kaneki notices that Nishiki has grown somewhat hostile towards him, as he cracks a finger. Nishiki corners him and suddenly chokes Kaneki, who apologizes, saying that he did not know the he was in Nishiki's feeding ground.

Touka Kirishima intervenes, insisting the area is not Nishiki's feeding ground, but rather, Rize Kamishiro's. Nishiki replies that Rize is dead and that the space was originally his until Rize appeared. The two began to debate, arguing over whose strength really deserved the ownership of the small alley. Touka and Nisihiki finally charge, engaging in a brawl. It ends with Touka quickly winning.

Kaneki apprehensively questions about what ghouls are, concluding that ghouls have no connection to their fellow ghouls and that they follow no concepts, morals or order in society and mentions that the ghoul world is the worst. Kaneki tries to stick to his human side, persisting that he will not eat the human meat under any circumstance.

Touka offers help, by attempting to shove meat into Kaneki’s mouth. He reluctantly swallows it, beginning to express guilt, for he was desperate to find another way to feed himself as nothing more than a human.

Disagreeing with Touka, he declares that he is not like those ghoul monsters.
