still not out of the Tokyo Ghoul phase (:
This is just something that I decided to somewhat start as I'm working on Silver Strike.
I spent some time the other day looking for all the arcana numbers that are shown throughout the series. It came to me that in Tokyo Ghoul re: some of the numbers previously given to characters are given to some new ones. Since I already did The Hanged Man (XII) a while back, I thought I would start from 1 and go all the way to 22 (or 0) with the major arcana tarot cards. Just as a rule to myself, I'm only using characters from the original series, so no characters introduced in Tokyo Ghoul re:
There's a few that are definite in terms of what number they are, but then there are a few that I just had to assign a number to.
Hide is one of the ones that is definite.
On his cap halfway into the series or so, "NO 1" is written. It may be a reference to "The Magician", major arcana 1. The tarot card's upright meaning is concentration, action, and resourcefulness.
I'm still working on Silver Strike, just a lot slowly than I had planned to. There are a lot of prior commitments that I didn't realize would take so much of my time and also other little surprises and stuff. Almost halfway done drawing the second chapter of Silver Strike, and then there is digitizing everything. The next update for Silver Strike probably won't be for a while.
