This volume marks a change of pace, with Kaneki returning to his past self, confronting Rize, and questioning the Anteiku owner, Yoshimura’s motives. It also regales us with the story of Uta and Kenji when they were young, and Kenji’s plan for revenge against Arima. There is a lot going on character-wise in this volume, with that author approaching CCG and telling Amon about the ghoul investigators’ suspicious activities, Touka looking forward to her future as an university student but also pining for the older Kaneki. Kaneki, on his part, moves to return to a simpler existence and disband his vigilante group, but the CCG might be a big obstacle to his wishes. \
It has always been known that the CCG are something of an antagonist in this story, even though they work to protect humans from the ghouls. The fact that a psychopath like that Suzuya and that Mado who loved to collect kagune can exist in the organization is proof enough that they are a bunch of righteous glorified police force, with a hate on for ghouls. Most of them being the product of revenge makes it understandable but sometimes even the monsters called ghouls show more humanity than them. I think Amon is finally starting to realize the shady nature of the organization he works for, but main question is who will he ally with finally?
