The 4th Ward falls under attack by Assistant Special Investigator Arima of the Commission of Counter Ghoul.

As Kaneki and the fiercest fighter in the CCG, Arima, finally face off, several investigators launch an assault on Yoshimura, unaware of the danger that awaits them. The massive battle takes a turn for the worse when the One-Eyed Owl appears, leaving the fate of Kaneki and the CCG hanging in the balance.



Overall, I really enjoyed this manga series. I had already watched the anime, but in the end I like the manga more. When the anime changed the storyline somewhat in the second series, it rather confused this. The original plot in the manga was much clearer. I would definitely like to go on to read Tokyo Ghoul: Re.
