After the events in Aogiri, where Kaneki was ‘transformed’, we get a languid pace in the form of this manga, which mainly focuses on the ghoul investigators. Sadly, they are not such an interesting bunch of people, compared to the ghouls, so I found this kind of boring. The interesting bits, however, were that the ghoul investigators provide backstory, exposition and fill in the gaps. Kaneki, himself, has been busy chasing down leads about Dr Kanou, who seems to have an ulterior motive for saving Kaneki with that transplant, way back in Vol 1. I honestly was a bit skeptical at that time how the doctor found nothing amiss while using Rize for the transplantation, but we get a much more shocking news about the doctor in this volume. I was feeling a bit adrift as to the Kaneki’s purpose at the start of this volume, but seems like we have a lot of interesting things to look forward to. Also, Hide – you smart fellow! Joined up with the ghoul investigators themselves, huh! I’m still not sure how he got the info about the Aogori thing, and it all seemed a bit coincidental, but am eager for developments on that front.
