Suffering (苦, Ku) is the one hundred twenty-ninth chapter of the manga Tokyo Ghoul:re.



Ayato Kirishima and his group arrive at the 24th ward, having found traces of human inhabitation. Ayato fails to detect the presence of any humans and moves on with his group, not knowing that they are being watched by two hooded figures.

Touka Kirishima unwraps the package Nishiki Nishio gave her from before per her request and inside lies a burger. Hesitantly, she proceeds to take a bite.

Takeomi Kuroiwa meets Bureau Chief Kichimura Washuu in his office, where he is praised for his outstanding performance. Kichimura reminds Takeomi of the Ghoul Countermeasures Law, Article 88, Section 1, which states that "persons harboring or otherwise preventing the arrest of a ghoul will be severely punished." Having made that clear, Kichimura brings Takeomi to an interrogation room.

Kou is seen accessing Goat's computer systems, having finished copying data inside a thumb drive. Before he can leave, he is stopped by Shuu Tsukiyama, who had been spying on him. When questioned of his actions earlier, Kou makes up an excuse in attempts to leave once more. Tsukiyama strikes at Kou and the two battle. Tsukiyama pierces Kou who counters with his rinkaku kagune and later the Frame B version of it. Shuu notes that he has a kakuja in both eyes. As he begins to gain the upper hand and before the fight escalates, Squad 0 surrounds Kou with quinques aimed at his throat. Take tells him to state his goal or he'll cut off his neck. Kou simply replies that his goal is to kill. Kou is identified as Hajime Hazuki, an academy student from the CCG. When questioned if he had become a Quinx, he states that he is an Oggai. He then states that there's something he wants to give Kaneki.

Having tied up Hazuki, Tsukiyama and Squad 0 meet up with Ken Kaneki and bring him a letter Hazuki wanted to give him. They explain who is is, that he was orphaned by ghouls and joined the Junior Academy. He has amazing physical capabilities and wanted revenge, even more so than other ghouls. They also confirm that he is alone.As Kaneki reads the letter, Takeomi is shocked to see his wife Yoriko Kosaka detained in the interrogation room along with Tooru Mutsuki and Shinsanpei Aura. Realizing the worst, he tries to object to her arrest while Mutsuki laughs with glee. Enraged, Takeomi raises his fist.

The letter, written by Mutsuki, informs that Yoriko, Touka's friend, has been imprisoned for violating the Ghoul Countermeasures Law. Mutsuki expresses interest in joining Kaneki's cause and still respects him. He tells him that he will be waiting at the Chateau every night at 9PM from the 12th to the 17th. Delivering the letter itself was a crime, but a risk that he was willing to take and asks Kaneki to trust him. Kaneki considers the entire thing a trap and burns it, telling his companions to not let Hazuki out of sight.

Remembering what she discussed with Kaneki about how Yoshimura's half human and half ghoul daughter was kept alive inside her human mother's womb, Touka consumes the burger and tries not to vomit, while begging her offspring to make it through. Just like she did in the past, chewing on her friend Yoriko's homemade meals.
