Here are some posts made by a couple of tumblr users regarding some symbolisms/foreshadowing in scattered all over Tokyo Ghoul.
- Hidden Tarot Card Symbolisms
- Mirror Panels (there are so many of these. This is just one example.)
- Kaneki’s Habit (As early as chapter one Ishida-sensei has already planted this clue but this was not revealed by Hide to Touka until chapter 118)
- Kaneki’s hair color transformation is in itself symbolic.
Suzuya’s Tarot Card Symbolism
- I’m only going to site Suzuya as an example because he is my fave and bcz I don’t want this to be too long.
- If you want know more about symbolisms and stuff you can read through this batoto forum thread. It has a lot of it.
- Suzuya Juuzou’s hair clip is a roman numeral for #13. This is equivalent to the Major Arcana card “Death”. Suzuya’s quinque “13’s Jason” looks like a scythe.
- Death card: A card that is most feared and misunderstood. Represents transformation and transition. (Now does this not describe Suzuya perfectly or what?)
