step, step, step
Slow footsteps echoed, and Arima Kisho walked out of the passage.
Wiping off the blood from the corner of his mouth, Su Xiao looked at Arima Kisho.
“Arima Kisho, do you know what you are doing?”
Just a few seconds ago, Arima Kisho surprisingly attacked him with his Quinque, which was clearly to protect Takatsuki Sen.
“If you came a bit later, I would’ve been killed by this guy.”
Takatsuki Sen went over to Arima Kisho, a ghoul was standing side by side with a ghoul Investigator.
“Byakuya, I didn’t want to talk to you about this before we got out, but it seems like I need to say this now.”
Arima Kisho stood next to Takatsuki Sen, he was not even on his guard. It seemed that the two were familiar with each other.
“What, are you going to attack me with Takatsuki Sen?”
Su Xiao clenched Dragon Flash tightly, ready to flee at a moment’s notice.
In the current state of Takatsuki Sen, he had 90% possibility to win, but with Arima Kisho, he could only strategically withdraw.
“Don’t be so vigilant, I don’t want to fight with you, it’s meaningless.”
Arima Kisho took up his Quinque and asked Takatsuki Sen to stop her actions.
“Shit, this bastard wanted to cut off my head several times, and I should leave him be?”
Takatsuki Sen was obviously unwilling, she was staring at Su Xiao with hatred.
“We cooperated 13 years ago, but that does not mean that we will continue to cooperate now. Kaneki Ken is dead.”
Arima Kisho’s words shocked Takatsuki Sen.
Takatsuki Sen was angry, she turned her head and no longer glared at Su Xiao, but at Arima Kisho.
“Are you going to work with this guy? He killed a lot of my subordinates.”
“I also killed a lot of members of the Aogiri tree.”
Arima Kisho looked at Takatsuki Sen indifferently, while Takatsuki Sen just turned white.
Su Xiao looked at the two people, astonished. Their personalities were somewhat different from the original animation. Were they faking this?
Arima Kisho was relieved as breathed deeply.
“Don’t be so vigilant, come closer.”
“If you have something to say, this distance is very good.”
Su Xiao would not come closer to Arima Kisho and Takatsuki Sen, they were obviously cooperating.
And their cooperation obviously started 13 years ago.
CCG’s strongest Investigator cooperated with the One-Eyed Owl, Su Xiao thought that there must be a huge secret there. It might also mean that there were some huge benefits coming his way.
Exploring the dark secrets of the derivative worlds always brought abundant benefits. Otherwise, Su Xiao would immediately complete the task and leave.
“Byakuya, what kind of organization do you think CCG is?”
Arima Kisho looked serious, and there was a bit of hatred in his eyes.
“Killing ghouls? Protecting humans?”
Su Xiao did not know CCG’s purpose, so he just answered carelessly.
“Ha, protecting humans? Will CCG protect humans? This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. The Investigators will protect humans, but CCG will never do so.”
Takatsuki Sen combed her hair, which had become messy during of the battle, she seemed to be very disdainful toward the CCG.
“No, CCG is not protecting humans at all. They are raising humans and controlling them….”
After Arima Kisho figured out his thoughts, he started to tell Su Xiao about CCG’s secrets.
The Ghoul Countermeasure Bureau (Commission of Counter Ghoul, CCG)
General Speaker: Washuu Tsuneyoshi
Director: Washuu Matsuri
CCG handled the ghouls’ related events around the world. All matters related to ghouls were handled by CCG, and they had massive clout.
In the open, CCG was protecting ordinary people and killing ghouls. But was this all?
Su Xiao had had doubts for a long time, that was, ever since CCG denied the request for powerful explosives to deal with ghouls. Was it because they were considering civilians’ safeties? In Su Xiao’s opinion, this was not the case at all.
Some powerful power machine guns could shoot through ghouls’ Kagune. For example, at the battle at the entrance of the 24th district, CCG only needed to set up a few powerful machine guns and spray. In such a narrow terrain, even a few thousand ghouls could be slaughtered without issue.
And if the power of a heavy machine gun was not enough, the power of an AWM would be enough, not to mention a Barrett shooting .50 cal.
With more than a dozen well-trained snipers, as long as they maintained a good distance, they could shoot Takatsuki Sen into a pile of meat without issue when using an AWM.
In the original plot, Kamishiro Rize almost dead because she was hit by steel that fell from the sky. That implied that ghouls’ Kagune were far less hard than they imagined.
Even if these weapons were not useful enough, humans also had the king of weapons, tanks!
Under the attack of these beasts, ghouls had no chance to fight back.
Humans are not able to completely eradicate ghouls? Don’t be kidding, humans were the strongest creatures on the planet, a fact that had been proven over millions of years.
But why does humanity still live under the threat of ghouls? Tokyo for example, the people that lived there often encountered ghouls’ attacks.
The one that made this happen was CCG.
“Byakuya, there is not a single human in any of the top positions of CCG. They are ghouls, the ghouls of the Washuu family.
In other words, there is a ghoul organization called V that leads CCG, and of course, ghouls will never completely eliminate all ghouls.”
The information that Arima Kisho told him let Su Xiao suddenly understand.
It turned out that that CCG never used powerful weaponry to kill ghouls because of this. He had already applied for several high-explosive grenades to the CCG General Administration, which had been checked for several days. In the end, the General Administration only gave him one, and its power had been drastically lowered, to the point that even an S classed ghoul could not be killed.
If Su Xiao had not seen the power of a true high-explosive grenade, he may have believed that the effectiveness of hot weapons was not a good way to deal with ghouls.
The CCG’s upper echelons were all ghouls, and ghouls would not completely eradicate the ghouls.
At this point, not only the top position of CCG, but also national institutions and even the military’s top positions should all be taken by ghouls. This was terrible.
Ghouls and humans appeared too similar, and the Washuu family also controlled CCG, the organization that fought them. Covered by the Washuu family, it was not difficult for ghouls to get into those institutions.
CCG had always instilled the idea in Investigators that hot weapons were not suitable for dealing with ghouls. This kind of indoctrination was similar to brainwashing, which began in the ‘ghoul Investigator school’, which was trained the Investigators. Over time, this lie eventually became the truth, and CCG even invented the Quinque to let humans deal with ghouls.
In this way, new problems had emerged. Since CCG’s top positions were all taken by ghouls, why would they let the Investigators, who were human, kill them and their companions?
This was actually a very simple question. Humans were the food of ghouls.
Therefore, CCG, which was the front of the mysterious organization V, thought of a way to use humans to eliminate some ghouls, to lower the number of ghouls to prevent humanity from going extinct.
This also gave the humans hope, so that there wouldn’t be too much desperation, which might lead to rebel organizations.
Humans were the main food of ghouls. If humans went extinct, then ghouls would go extinct soon after.
Although ghouls could survive by eating other ghouls, the extinction of humanity would lead to the collapse of society. At that time, there will be a few ghouls left on earth, who would continue to kill each other, until the last one starved to death.
CCG neither wanted to let this situation happen, nor did they want to let the ghouls go extinct, they were ghouls after all, so Investigators who used Quinque to fight emerged.
Investigator were like a diligent ‘street sweepers’ that controlled the number of ghouls.
Su Xiao cleared the 14th district before. This kind of behavior was very helpful to humanity. If CCG was fighting for humanity, then why did they not let Su Xiao clean up the other areas, but instead transferred him to the 24th district, where no humans lived? Even if he killed all the ghouls in the 24th district, could humans live underground? Of course not.
The ghouls in the 24th district may know about CCG’s secrets, so CCG was killing them off.
The confrontation between the Aogiri tree and CCG was not a war between ghouls and human, but an internal war between ghouls.
Aogiri tree gathered large numbers of ghouls and occupied a certain area. In the perspective of the CCG’s executives, this was a challenge to their authority.
If CCG hadn’t spread the word that hot weapons were not suitable for dealing with ghouls, and this thought hadn’t been deeply rooted in people’s minds, CCG executives would’ve sent a plane and bombed Aogiri tree long ago.
