Lecture (講義, Kōgi) is the 53rd chapter in the manga.
Shinohara and Juuzou visit the crime scene of two or three ghouls that were murdered via disembodiment of their limbs, into roughly two hundred parts. Shinohara mentions that the person who committed the murder was very skilled at using knives; concluding that it was Juuzou. Upon confirmation, he lectures Juuzou about the countermeasures laws against ghouls. Juuzou then becomes disappointed when Shinohara tells him that he is not allowed ownership of a quinque.
On the subject of quinques, Shinohara goes into full details about the types of Kagune, Kakuhou, Rc cells, and the rival for each type of type of kagune.
Hide sits in his apartment watching the news of the uproar between ghouls and Ghoul Investigators. He then looks at his phone, wondering about Kaneki’s safety.
