The primary goal was the extermination of the Non-Killing Owl, and elimination of all other ghouls encountered. The operation saw CCG ghoul investigators battle not only the Owl, but also members of two retired gangs, the Apes, and the Black Dobers. Aogiri Tree and the One-Eyed Owl would later join the battle, taking advantage of the chaos.
It is the finale of Tokyo Ghoul.
