Given what’s been happening in the rest of the episodes, this week’s episode was pretty slow. Akira and Amon get some more bonding time, I guess…not exactly the greatest thing to watch, though. There were a lot of flashes to Kaneki writhing in pain, which I’m assuming means that he’s trying to maintain humanity after losing it in the previous battle.
I guess the other thing that happened this week was the brief background on the crazy investigator with all the stitches. Exactly how appropriate was that? It seemed a bit random to me…the only link was to the fact that the armored investigator was revealed to be alive. Anyway, it looks like the CCG is preparing for a full-on assault on Aogiri. There’s been so much focus on Aogiri lately that it seems like the Anteiku characters have fallen into the background. When are they going to become relevant again?
