The Commission of Counter Ghoul is the only organization fighting the Ghoul menace, and they will use every tool at their disposal to protect humanity from its ultimate predator. Their newest weapon in this hidden war is an experimental procedure that implants human investigators with a Ghoul’s Kagune, giving them Ghoul powers and abilities. But both the procedure and the newly formed Qs Squad are untested. Will they become heroes…or monsters?!

Haise Sasaki has been tasked with teaching Qs Squad how to be outstanding Investigators, but his assignment is complicated by the troublesome personalities of his subordinates and his own uncertain grasp of his Ghoul powers.

Operation Auction Sweep has turned into a bloodbath as the investigators face off against the Ghouls of Aogiri Tree’s security forces. And with victory for the CCG far from assured, Investigator Toru Mutsuki must escape from behind enemy lines. His only help comes from Kuki Urie, the ex-Squad Leader of the Quinxes, whose sole allegiance is to his next promotion. With such a dubious ally and flesh-hungry Ghouls all around, does Toru even stand a chance?

A month has passed since Operation Auction Sweep, and business at the CCG rolls on. An inter-squad task force has been formed to investigate the Rosenwald family, and the Quinxes are part of the team. The Rosenwald organization, code-named Rosé, is suspected of being behind a rash of kidnappings in Germany. This is a huge case for the Qs, and the worst possible time for their mentor to fall apart. But Haise’s frequent flashbacks have started making him question everything he believes in—even his own identity.


I have really enjoyed this opening volumes in the Tokyo Ghoul sequel. At the very start all the new faces left me a little confused, but I soon got my head around who everyone was and what was going on. I am going to request the next few volumes from the library today. Can't wait to see what will happen next as Haise's memories return.
