Playfully Faint (戯れ薄く, Zare Usuku) is the fifty-eighth chapter of the manga Tokyo Ghoul:re.



Yomo and Touka save Shuu Tsukiyama as he is about to get attacked by some investigators. Chie tells Shuu to get into a stolen van so they may escape. As Chie hands him a warm towel, Shuu notices that his father is driving the vehicle. He explains to his son that he overheard that the helicopter he sent had been shot down, prompting him to escape custody to save his son. His father is surprised that Shuu survived the fall, to which he explains that he was pushed off by Kaneki and Karren gave her life to save him. Chie brings up that Kaneki could have killed Shuu if he really wanted to. Meanwhile, the Aogiri Tree attacks the vehicles transporting the bodies of the dead investigators and steal some of the bodies. Furuta watches over the scene while smiling and humming Donna Donna. It is revealed that Chie was the one who sought the help of Touka and Yomo. After Chie recommends it, Shuu thanks Yomo and Touka. He asks Chie if she was scared, to which she replies that she didn't have enough time think about that stuff.

At the graveyard, investigators rue their dead comrades. Saiko, Mutsuki, and Akira mourn over Shirazu. When asked by Mutsuki if he won't go to Shirazu's grave, Urie replies that Shirazu is not in there, and swears to get back Shirazu's body.

In Kanou's lab, Kanou has dissected Shirazu's body and is amazed by the Quinx surgery's technology developed by Kouitsu Chigyou. He intends to use this to improve his own ghoulification surgery and theorizes that it will highly increase its success rate. Kanou praises Chigyou's work. Kanou claims that they need more corpses and wants to tell Eto the progress. Tatara claims that she's busy. Kanou asks with what, to which Tatara replies it doesn't concern him.

Meanwhile, Eto is busy taking a bath. A fully regenerated Eto ponders that his arm should have grown back and if "her thing" (kagune) was to his liking.

Kaneki leads his own squad and attacks Aogiri ghouls. The Aogiri ghouls refer to him as the "Black Reaper". He orders his squad to exterminate the remaining ghouls.
