[Spoilers] Tokyo Ghoul - Kaneki's hair

YOU PROBABLY DON'T WANT TO READ THIS IF YOU HAVEN'T WATCHED TOKYO GHOUL

Spoiler :
I think many of you already know about this but if you don't, the sudden whitening of Kaneki's hair was due to the Marie Antoinette syndrome.
Marie Antoinette syndrome is sudden whitening of hair due to extreme amount of stress, sorrow and fear.
It is named after the last queen of France whose hair turned white overnight prior her execution.
So after Yamori tortured him for 10 days one day his hair just turned white! Tada!

Maybe Suzuya Juuzou's hair also turned white because of this syndrome as he was constantly tortured in his young age.

In my family many people always say that don't worry too much or your hair is gonna turn grey (Not overnight though).
Even now often when people in my society see someone with gray hair it is assumed that that person is worried or tensed a lot...

I had indeed thought of this while watching Katanagatari. (Have watched only 4 episodes yet) I don't know many characters like that much either.

Hmmm ... Interesting. Dang, and I thought this was just an anime only thing. I like shiro kaneki more than kuro. Kuro was not mentally strong, shiro isnt either, But it also indicates the realization of him accepting his ghoul self, thus becoming the badass.

Kaneki's mental health worsened if anything after the torture. It is possible to say that he has Schizophrenia and dissociative personality disorder. He becomes colder and ruthless after the torture but still retains the sense of protecting others. So I guess that is what makes us feel that he is badass.

Well I have studies and jobs and house and health to tend to. I did take up that challenge but I can hardly make time for it >.>

You did tell me, ya took arts and science.. Ya secretly did MBBS or what, lol? Aaaand , I see. Credits goes to Jason, the great for bringing out his badass-ness. MPD or DID occured to him after his fight against Arima at the end of TG and before the start of TG : Re. He would get amnesia. And thus sasaki was born. Tragedy tag perfectly fits that anime.
