Deception (欺罔, Gimō) is the 7th chapter in the manga.
The three try looking for the material, but to no avail. Nishiki abruptly concludes that he left the disk at home and suggests they go there for it. Kaneki realizes that Nishiki uses his docile manner in order to deceive humans, and then decides to accompany Hide just for the sake of his safety. They head to Nishiki’s home while he makes a phone call, and Kaneki and Hide start chatting about Nishiki, saying that he’s actually someone Hide might hate.
Nishiki treats the boys to Taiyaki fish, which Kaneki puts away, saying that he’d eat it later. Kaneki seems to be amazed by the fact that Nishio was able to eat the piece of fish without purging, but doubts his actions afterwards. The fact that Nishiki’s pretense as a normal human college student was flawless impressed Kaneki, but he also notes that the injury Nishio sustained, via Touka’s blow, to his neck wasn’t fully healed.
The walk home turns out to be a clever ambush set by Nishio himself, as he cornered the two boys. He unexpectedly kicks Hide, knocking him unconscious, and begins to ridicule Kaneki. He mentions that when ghouls see the look on a human’s face after recognizing betrayal, it makes the moment even more appetizing. Nishio then accuses Kaneki of wanting the eat Hide, to which Kaneki responds that he is different from the ghouls. Nishiki gets angry on Touka’s terms after hearing something like this. Nishio notes Kaneki’s body to be fragile, and starts to vomit out the contents of the fish he ate earlier.
He presumptuously puts a foot on Hide’s face, much to Kaneki’s dismay.
