I’m back everyone! Sorry my break was so long, school was driving me insane! But now I’m back, so all is good! Go ahead and put those torches and pitchforks down, nice and easy. Sorry for this everyone, but I got so bored writing that I shortened everything >3>
HMMMMMmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm some people looking for a family right at the beginning.
Mighty suspicious ಠ_ಠ
Then we see the cinnamon roll, Kaneki, making his first pot of coffee. He tries it, and it’s kinda iffy and then he begins to beat himself up about it.
Kaneki plz, ;-;, you are a beginner. It won’t be perfect on the first try ;^;. (If it were I’d be famous ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) probably…)
Kaneki tells Yoshimura that he can’t get it to taste as good as his, and Yoshimura then tells him that the taste depends on how much care you put into making it.
How very poetic Yoshimura ;0;. Or am I the only one who found that poetic? Just me? Okay v3v
Then Yoshimura sends Kaneki to go help Touka at the front counter. Yoshimura tells Kaneki to keep in mind that Anteiku isn’t just a cafe, it’s also a place where ghouls come together and reminds Kaneki that some of the customers are ghouls and others will be human.
Kaneki tells Yoshimura that he thought ghouls hid from humans, in reply, Yoshimura says that because Ghouls live in the world of humans, they must study the habits of humans to blend in and states that he likes humans.
Yoshimura tells Kaneki that he has one more thing to share
Goodness Yoshimura, get to the point D:<
He tells Kaneki that anyone who comes in with suitcases, attaches, or any type of large luggage he should be informed discretely.
As Kaneki goes out to help Touka she signals him to go over to her and a loud customer. That loud customer happens to be Hide. He explains to Kaneki that he came by to thank Touka for saving them when they got into a car accident; a scenario Yoshimura explained to Hide.
Touka tells Kaneki to make sure that Hide never finds out that he’s a ghoul, because if he does she’ll kill Hide.
Like, WE GET IT TOUKA. HE FINDS OUT, AND KANEKI DOESN’T GET FRIENDS.
So then Touka talks about how if she really hated humans as much as she thinks she does he’d already be dead, but he’s not. She also talks about how Nishiki is probably like majorly salty and stuff about getting his butt kicked by Kaneki, probably ruined that pride. Then can’t forget about the other ghouls drinking coffee eyeballing Hide, I mean it legit happened to Kaneki, anything can happen with our other crazy friend.
After work Yoshimura took Kaneki upstairs and was like “I’m gonna show you how to eat a sandwich.” Like, oh. Thanks?? Kaneki is really surprised though, he’s pretty much like “You enjoyed that disgusting piece of trash?” Yoshimura pushed the sandwiches to him and was like, you should eat it. So then Kaneki does, and regrets the first bite. He starts writing his descriptive novel on the taste of the food, saying the grassy smell of lettuce is in his nose and the bread was like a tasteless sponge. Do you eat tasteless sponges when you’re bored?
Yoshimura taught Kaneki the trick into eating food, which is to swallow the first bite without it touching your tongue. That does not sound easy, like ???????? Then they gotta pretend to bite a couple times like they’re actually eating and make chewing noises like there’s really something in their mouth and literally just every ghoul has to be an actor when they want to go out in public. But they gotta make sure to go vomit that food back up or the ghoul stomach will have a temper tantrum. Then as a quick important side panel Yoshimura’s all like “Show him how it’s done, Touka :D” but Touka declined and was like “Hahaaaa sorry, I’m feeling sick. Maybe later.”
So Kaneki can feel all that support from the beings he once hated and is so happy and then Yoshimura has a gift and passes him a brown looking sugar cube.
“Treasure it, my son.”
Then Yoshimura told him that it looks normal except it’s brown, but when it’s in your coffee you wont be really hungry, so Kaneki was like “WHAT, REALLY? WHAT’S IN IT???” And Yoshimura was like “
You know what’s in it, my dude. You don’t want to know.”
Yoshimura also made sure to slap Kaneki with some knowledge and truth for a minute, telling him that he’s gonna have to go hunting for some human flesh soon or he’s gonna die, or almost kill someone precious again.
Some new faces to Kaneki enter Anteiku, and Kaneki looks new to them so it kinda works. They’re the Fueguchi’s and they introduced themselves to Kaneki, then were sent upstairs to get a package they wanted. Kaneki probably thought to himself, “Whoaaa, Touka was friendly with someone. They must be ghouls.” Same, I don’t blame you for thinking so. So then Kaneki asks why they’re here, and Touka tells him that it’s because they gotta get food and can’t hunt like him.
So then the one customer who was eyeballing Hide lost him in his pursuit. So he’s busy complaining about how Rize messed up his food and he’s desperate and finds an old guy just walking with a briefcase.
So he’s like really desperate and attacks this dude, to which the old man was like “No thanks” and opened that briefcase and didn’t give the ghoul a chance to say goodbye to his arms and legs. The old guy started reading memorized sections from the law or something, and then proceeded to decapitating the ghoul (Off Screen for your viewing pleasure but you do just see the head there).
After that the younger guy from the beginning of the chapter comes in and apologizes for being so late and asked what happened where the old guy was.
Well, there’s a body and your buddy doesn’t seem like the guy to murder an innocent bystander according to those rules he recited.
Then at the end for the chapter we learn that the younger guy is Koutaro Amon and the older one is Kureo Mado, then they pretty much look like they’re walking away from an explosion.
Kabooom!!!!!!!! *Explosionnnnnnnnnnn* Cool guys don’t look at explosions, they blow things up and then walk away
Anyway, this chapter was pretty good. Not too excited for the rest but I’ll try to make them less depressing. Again ,sorry for the super late reunion(?) Procrastination is like my life. I won’t even deny it anymore. But weekly updates should be resuming. Check out my other articles maybe called Spoiler Alert!, maybe? Support is nice <::
If you like Fairy Tail, The Seven Deadly Sins, and/or Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches you should check it out!
