Characters Edit

Synopsis Edit

Aogiri Tree’s violence permeates through the Wards putting everyone on alert. The 11th Ward is under siege as ghouls group together to eliminate investigators until the 11th Ward Branch Office is defeated. Marude waits impatiently at the 20th Ward Branch Office until he receives word that the 11th Branch is gone. Afterwards, he holds an emergency meeting on the issue. There were no survivors and they are planning a large scale attack on the gang responsible. The meeting is interrupted by Juuzou who showed up late.

After the meeting, Amon and Shinohara research and discuss their strategies. Amon is surprised that Marude let Juuzou participate in the upcoming mission, but Shinohara figures that he must see value in him. Shinohara is concerned about Yamori, but Amon is distracted. He is still confused about Kaneki who makes him think about his past. Shinohara mentions that Amon’s quinque was broken, so he can take one of Mado’s because it was in his will.

Business at Anteiku is slow because customers are weary of investigators. When they finally receive customers, they are Banjou and the Gas Masks, associates of Aogiri. Banjou demands to speak with the manager, but he is absent. He speaks with Kaneki and Touka instead but becomes infuriated when he notices Rize’s scent on Kaneki, thinking that they are dating. He threatens Kaneki who accidentally headbutts Banjou, knocking him unconscious. When Banjou awakens, they make amends. He explains the situation in the 11th Ward and came to warn Rize to run because Aogiri was after her.

Ayato breaks into Anteiku and attacks Banjou. Touka confronts him and they bicker until Yamori and Nico arrive. Yamori immediately takes an interest in Kaneki and beats him until he is unconscious to take him back to Aogiri. Touka tries to stop them, but is defeated. Yoshimura and Yomo return and have already figured that Kaneki was taken. He later holds a meeting with Anteiku’s staff about rescuing Kaneki. Tsukiyama appears having been invited by Yoshimura to assist in the rescue.
