Ken is trying to deal with the Aogiri Tree with some turf war stuff as well as trying to track down the doctor who gave him Rize’s organs. At the same time, The Commission of Counter Ghouls is getting close to locating Ken and learning what he really is.
This volume brings back the action in the second half after more talking from the investigators in the first half. Seeing Ken focus so much on his training and using his abilities really hammered home to me how much he has changed from the first volume. This bookish, self conscious quiet boy is now a badass, cynical, hardened fighter.
We also learn some of the truth about Rize, the doctor, and a bit of what may be happening with her but there’s plenty more to explain from here on out. This volume gets a 4 out of 5.
