Really powerful episode! I am celebrating at Touka & Hinami killing Kureo, pure glad.

Surprised that Kaneki let Amon live...I mean I understand he said he didn't want to be a murderer but I doubt that'll change Amon's outlook on anything.

I loved it. I think Touka is more important here than Kaneki. And Hinami-chan...I feel really bad for the kid. That action was intense. Mado-san was CRAZY!

I try and try to watch, but I can't bear such ridiculous nonsense.

So, Kaneki thinks that families should give up the bodies of their beloved ones so they can do serve as food to ghouls? Open all cemeteries to serve as malls to ghouls?
Even families of suicides have the right to know their destinies and mourn the deads.

There's no way that humans can live in peace with their predators

She said nice :3

I hope humanity wipes these ghouls off the face of the earth.

After watching the episode all i can think about was that ring in Mado's hand that Touka stared at. Could that meand that Mado has/had a family? Really caught my eye there

Fantastic episode.

I didnt expect Mado to die this soon, he was interesting.

Yomo eating that hit without even flinching was something.

Honestly, this episode I started HATING Mado, I mean, he turned out to be worse that most of the ghouls. Kaneki fighting was cool, and seeing him strugle with Rine to control himself was pretty cool. Overall, this episode was good, and seeing Hinami's kagune beeing a mix of both her father's and mother's was kind of heartwarming.

Why was Amon wearing an eyepatch? I checked the last episode and he had no apparent eye injury. Is this a censorship thing or did the anime take out scenes again? If the former, then what was it covering? His eye looked fine!

Also, I really thought the ring on Mado's finger was to do with someone in Touka's past, so I feel silly for not realising it was a wedding ring.

There's no fucking possible way that ghouls and humans can live peacefully together.

Just fucking eat other ghouls, that sounds fair enough.

The fights were really cool.
Kinda laughed when Mado realized he didnt lose his quinque, but his right arm instead.

What Touka said was right though, Ghouls didnt choose to only be able to eat humans, they were made that way.
They also have feelings, lose people they love / care about.

Hope Kaneki can pull himself together, he's going to lose his body to Rize if this goes on.

Another awesome episode. 5 out of 5 Just like I said earlier this show really knows how to make you feel bad for someone; I even felt bad for Mado when I found out he had a family and that other guy found him.

Awesome. Nice character building through this episode.

Is it bad that I just want to see a full-on battle? Does that happen?

Nice episode. Had a feeling Mado was going to die since he saw Touka's face, and since she has plot armor, he had to go. lol

Omg the fight was too lame. I wonder why the MC is so damn pathetic even close to end of the season. The mask looked stupid since he was so pathetic. Otherwise he would look badass.

Poor Mado, I really liked him.

Interesting, this episode leads me to hope for a confrontation of ideas between Kaneki and Amon. for thr moment, Kaneki is the only character capable of no biased opinion about the two species, at least he sees the bad things in both. Amon is a bit disappointing about his stuborness but it might change.
The ring has probably triggered a souvenir from Tôka's relative whose name was on her door. Whatever, she's still annoying.

Some good musics. And fights -_-

It's kind of hard to sympathize with a species that literally eats people.

Man... I will miss Mado. I had a love/hate relationship with that guy. He had enough psycho inside of him for me to like him.

I can see why he despises ghouls so much. Can't blame him.

Ok, the fights of this series are BORING, there's no strategy, nor complex choreographies, no tension at all, not even some engaging music to complement them, for God's sake.
Kaneki's monologue about humans and ghouls was incredibly cheesy, what a way to break the dark atmosphere.
Well,at least Mado is death, we'll miss you, one-dimensional psycopath.

Mado is dead, at last. Though I felt kinda bad for him since he was married and all. Probably a revenge from his wife or relatives??

Like sorry ever heard of the fucking meat industry, like sorry if ur so oppressed by ghouls what about that CHILD standing in front of u questioning her life and her will to live wtf is wrong with humans im so mad

Great episode here with plenty of action and the creepy investigator got killed off finally, Kaneki almost ruined it though with his terrible line at the end how "Ryoko was telling you to live, I believe" but he wasn't even there? what does he base his nonsense on or is just bad writing?

Mado is really good but seems the ghouls are slightly better.

I can't believe he got his hand and leg chopped off, kinda laughed when he was like "where'd my hand go?" and I kinda rewatched it a few times because the dub just sounded so funny of him saying it, I thought lol. He should've said "where'd my leg go?" lol.

Touka doesn't get why the ghouls are hunted, for no apparent reason according to her ... I was like "you're killing humans, that's why you dumbass" - that was the dumbest thing I've ever heard ... "oh gee, we kill innocent people but I really don't understand why they are out killing us" ... oh I dunno why that is Sherlock, it's such a damn mystery isn't it? >> dickhead.

Kaneki is the only on apparently who understands that ghouls and humans all have feelings and families apparently, I doubt it ... I'm pretty sure the humans get that but don't care because the ghouls are out killing people for food and sometimes like its sport.

It was nice to see Hinami also refuse to kill Mado ... at least her and Kanei have some sort of moral compass.

I like how balanced this series is. It doesn't tell you which group to side with, it instead shows the good and bad of both Ghouls and Humans. I think Tokyo Ghoul is a fairly accurate depiction of what could happen if ever there were an intelligent species which solely relied on humans for sustenance.

Second amazing episode in a row, I was somehow fond of Mado, even though he was a monster, also interesting to see that even he had a family. I guess everyone has their reasons for the way they behave.

Hinami was right on the money, revenge means nothing, the bottom line is that she lost her parents and that no amount of killing will change the fact that she is now alone.

Loved it!

Fucking Hinami and Touka. That was just plain plot armor. I hope all the ghouls get exterminated. And poor Mado. Rest In Peace. I hope Amon can kill the ghouls without hesitation.

Without change,we end up becoming the very person we hate.

I was dead until the moment I met you. I was a powerless corpse pretending to be alive. Living without power, without the ability to change my course, was bound to lead me to a slow death.

I found Kaneki to be particularly pitiful from the beginning, but I didn't think it took away from the story because I have not read the manga. I don't know any spoilers either, so I don't have expectations other than the first couple episodes being excellent.

But now that Keneki has the mask he at least LOOKS the part. I assume his new image and purpose will help develop him in the long run.

Very impoertant episode. It shows the perspective both from ghouls' and humans' point of view on this conflict.

Poor Hinami, by the way. She proves that it doesn't matter in this anime whether you are human or ghoul - children suffer in the same way after loosing their parents.
