The Night Is Coming (夜がくる, Yoru ga kuru) is the one hundred thirty-fifth chapter of the manga Tokyo Ghoul:re.



With the battle in Kichimura Washuu's office progressing, Roma Hoito's backstory reveals her affiliation as the sole founder of the Clowns. When she was old enough to be aware of the world around her, she realized that she didn't have parents and was alone. She lived off scavenging off rotten meat. She eventually wanted fresh meat and murdered a person at the age of seven. Remembering the taste, she continued to kill without respite. She'd kill other ghouls for their feeding grounds or out of boredom and gained a reputation that stood above other mass murderers. She noticed that society was filled with people who played make believe for their own benefit and desires. She hated them and wanted to throw the world into chaos, killing and causing misery.

She lacked a real name and changed her name countless times. Eventually she was imprisoned in the Cochlea by the CCG. It was a fun life for her. The Doves, not the Clowns themselves, didn't know she that she founded the Clowns or their leader, so her disposal was postponed. She remembers Rio being brought in and at night, Shiki Kijima would regularly torture Rio in a nearby cell and she would enjoy his screams. Flashbacks to the events at the time of the Second Cochlea Raid occur, with Aogiri Tree infiltrating Cochlea and Tatara and offering Roma Hoito a place among their ranks. Due to the two's conflicting principles, with Tatara wishing to create a world led by ghouls and the latter preferring to stick with indulging in her voyeurism, the two fight, leading to Tatara accidentally letting Roma free. Despite this, Eto returns to tell him that he has found a kid that is mentally unstable but has four kagune.

Later, she received a haircut from Uta at the HySy ArtMask Studio. He informed her of a one-eyed ghoul working at Anteiku. After she contemplated becoming a part-timer there, Uta said he would introduce her. He goes on to mention their newest member, Souta, a ghoul investigator. Roma found the new information interesting, and was ready to have her fun.

The scene pans back to the fight in the bureau chief's office, continuing on from Kuki Urie getting impaled. Restating her ideologies, Roma rises up from the ground, stitching her head together immaculately, and turns into her kakuja form as the SSS-rated "Dodgy Mother". As Urie falls to the ground, Iwao Kuroiwa stands unwavering in the face of drooling adversity.

The scene then transfers back to the 24th ward, where recalibrated Oggai begin attacking. Dwellers of the 24th ward are sliced to pieces mercilessly. The party is commandeered by Tooru Mutsuki, in a fashion reminiscent of a boot camp instructor. He tells them to kill all the ghouls before the king returns and to kill Touka, as she is the king's weakness.

With ghouls falling one by one, Renji Yomo steps up to buy time for Touka Kirishima, stating she still has ones she must protect. Just as Touka is about to escape, she and the noncombatant Goat members encounter a hostile Hajime Hazuki, surrounded by bodies, who jokingly pities her for reaching a dead end.
