Ken Kaneki is asked to take a shower, but is also shocked at the fact that he is surprised with a suit and tie. He then enters a waiting room where he meets Kobachi, an editor of the “Tokyo Gourmet” magazine and Ami, his acquaintance. The three share with each other what they were all told; to take a shower, dress formally and then wait while the ‘other room’ was being prepared. A waitress suddenly arrives, giving them some snacks and coffee.
They are taken to another room where they are told to wait once again. Ami tries to open the door they came through, but to no avail. Suddenly a voice is heard on the speaker, announcing the night’s dinner. Suddenly lights flood the room, revealing crowds of people on the above platforms. The three are fully introduced as subjects of the night’s ultimate feast; with Kaneki being the main course of the meal. Kaneki is shocked to see Shuu Tsukiyama as the host, and soon comes to the realization that it was all a setup. He is forced to look on helplessly as a scrapper steps out of the shadows.
