Tokyo Ghoul Episode 6 “Cloudburst” (驟雨)
Kaneki, Touka, and Nishiki continue their efforts to save Kimi from “The Gourmet” Shuu Tsukiyama. By feeding on Kaneki, Touka is able to use her strong kagune. The Gourmet loses the battle and seems to be on the verge of death. As Nashiki goes to free Kimi, Touka tells him to stand aside. Touka wants Kimi to be killed because she has seen Kaneki’s and Nishiki’s ghoul forms. Kaneki talks her out of it by comparing the human/ghoul relationship that Kimi and Nashiki share to the relationship of Touka and Yoriko. Touka does attack Nishiki, but she stops when Kimi tells her she is pretty. Then, Touka leaves the church to think things over on her own.
At Anteiku, Nashiki joins the staff and decides to adopt their non-violent way of life. Touka is still in deep thought and remains absent from the shop. Hinami dearly misses her father and is at her emotional limit. She desperately wants to go see him, but he is being held by the 13th Ward serial killer ghoul known as Jason (Yamori). Her father repairs the mysterious ghoul pliers for him only to be attacked for his affiliation with humans. The investigators kept an eye on Hinami’s father in order to trap Jason. A fight between Mado, Amon, and Jason ensues.
Amon and Mado use their quinque because Jason is an SS ranked dangerous ghoul. NOTE: A quinque is an investigator weapon genetically created from the kagune of murdered ghouls. Jason evades the doves, but Hinami’s father was not so lucky. He is killed by Mado.
Kaneki goes to check on Touka who has not left her room since the church incident. He apologizes to her for bringing up her relationship with Yoriko at that time. Kaneki tells her that he believes Kimi and Nishiki are an example of what the human/ghoul dynamic should be. Earlier Hinami and her mother argued then made up. Kaneki says that the bonds of love between mother and child are the same whether you are human or ghoul. Family is what is important.
Hinami and her mother go shopping at a local bookstore only to be cornered by Mado and Amon in a rain storm. Her mother sacrifices herself, in order for Hinami to get away. At the end of the episode, Kaneki is walking in the rain unaware of what is going on.
