After everything is settled, and they all have successfully escaped from Aogiri, Touka turns to him. When we get back, why don't we change your hair color? If you work in the shop like that, you'll stand out a lot. If he is to protect her and everyone else, he has to get away and become stronger. Kaneki can no longer afford to cower behind her, knowing how easily she can die. As he announces his plans, and others start joining him, he can see it before Touka utters the words that she wants to join him too.
But Kaneki can't afford to let her come, lest something bad might happen to her. I want to see Touka-chan's latte art. She turns away and runs from him, from the situation. Kaneki can't blame her. He meant those words too. Touka is not the first person he wants to see after his long absence, but she's the one he wants to see the most. He didn't lie back then. Kaneki is always with her. Because she's always in his thoughts, deep down, even if he wants to bury those feelings.
He buys her a rabbit keychain on her birthday, even if, in the end, he decides not to see her, and runs away from her, when she catches a glimpse of him. Touka is well, continuing on with her normal life, and for that he's happy, albeit a bit lonely. Kaneki wishes life wasn't so complicated. He wishes that he could be with her again, even for a short time. Yoshimura-san tells him he can come back to Anteiku, to his previous life, to Touka-chan. He doesn't know what to do, but he's willing to mull over this.
Ironically, he runs into her on the bridge just when he's thinking of seeing her again. She doesn't say anything, though, she just stares at the floor, and puts her arms around herself, as if to protect herself from him. I don't want to lose anyone important to me, that's why I pulled out any interfering weeds.
But Touka isn't taking any of his bullshit, and she calls him out on it. You pretend you care about other people, but in the end it's all about you. You're just being afraid of being alone, aren't you? What you want is nothing more but self-satisfaction. It's all so stupid. Because he can't fool her any more than he can fool himself.
And that bothers him, that pisses him off even. There are things Kaneki wishes to keep hidden, and Touka being able to read him so well, makes him feel exposed. She point blank tells him what she thinks.
She's straightforward, and, in any other case, that'd be an endearing trait, but not now. As long as you're never left alone. He evades every hit and kick she sends his way, but he can't stop the impact that her words deliver.
Kaneki understands she wants to hurt him, because in some sense he had already hurt her first. He decides then to do better by her, and return.

If she would have him, that is. Alas, he never goes back to Anteiku. Inside Sasaki Haise, there are many people Kaneki wishes to see. People Kaneki wants to make sure are actually alive, and not dead.
He wants to go home. It is Touka, out of everyone, who shows him his home still exists. As Haise, he has a habit of trying different coffee shops, looking for the best coffee in Tokyo. He hasn't had luck yet. He has been to many places, sure, but all the coffees he tastes lack something he can't quite name.
So, he keeps searching until one fateful day, along with Shirazu and Mutsuki, he finds a quaint little coffee shop named: On the counter, there's a man that looks put off by their sudden appearance in the shop. How many times do I have to tell you to greet our customers? Air leaves his lung. He's mesmerized by her, but Haise has no idea why. The girl shows them to their table, and they order. Haise thinks that's an understatement. The waitress isn't just cute, she's gorgeous. He's so distracted by her, he doesn't notice when the other man sits in front of him.
Haise is startled, but the contact doesn't last long. Then the waitress reprimands the man, who is apparently her brother. A few minutes later, she brings their coffees to the table, and when Haise takes a sip of that coffee, his world changes.
It smells and tastes like a place he used to know. The coffee tastes like what home is supposed to be. He can't help it.
Unknown feelings bubble inside him. He apologizes to his squad, and then the pretty waitress offers him a napkin. Nothing is making sense right now. She looks a bit troubled, and a bit sad. But the thought that he once had such a beautiful person in his life crosses his mind.
It seems to be true. Touka isn't the first girl Kaneki likes, but she's the first girl Haise likes. After that first visit to: He liked the coffee, so that's reason enough to return, or so he tells himself. Last time he couldn't check the books, but now he can look at them closely. The owners seem to have a great selection, and the titles of some books seem to ring a bell. Haise would like to read them some time. Haise thinks that this will be all, but she continues talking to him.
I am a ghoul investigator. And then he keeps coming back to the shop. Soon, he's a regular there, and every time he walks through the door, the pretty waitress is already waiting for him, with a smile on her face. Haise feels like he can be himself with her, forgetting for a bit his responsibilities as the leader of the Quinx Squad, and all the cases he's trying to solve.
He's no longer someone's sensei, or the bringer of justice of the city. Haise can't help but to observe her, using the books he brings or borrows from her, to cover the fact he's openly gawking at her. Haise likes to see how he waitress prepares coffee, and how she attends every single customer. However, it seems to him that she's a little more attentive towards him. But perhaps, that's just wistful thinking. Other times, Haise's bolder, and he openly talks to her.
He makes a pun or two, and manages to make her laugh. She has such a cute laugh.
She even snorts a little, and tries to hide it by covering her mouth. Haise thinks it's a shame that she would cover her beautiful lips. At some point, he realizes he's infatuated with the pretty waitress.
He only knows he's feeling like this, because he recognizes the feelings from the books he's read. Haise has no experience with love.
He briefly wonders if in his previous he ever fell in love with someone, and if that person was somewhere, waiting for him. Sometimes he thinks that that person might be the waitress, since she does seem familiar. Haise's most pressing issue, however, is whether or not she likes him back.
He has noticed that she's a little kinder to him than to other customers, but he might very well had imagined such attentions. Besides, there might be someone else in her life. Still, that doesn't stop him from wondering what she is doing during Christmas. If she's spending the night on a date… He hopes he has a chance. Touka isn't the first person to see Kaneki after he gains his memories, but she's the first one to shake his core.
When Kaneki recovers his memories, he decides to continue where he left off. He distances himself from others for this purpose. He stops going to: He's colder to his former squad. He becomes sadistic again. Kaneki also stops sleeping altogether. What matters to him now is to, firstly, rescue Hinami from Cochlea, and then bring down Aogiri and their leader Eto, as he had attempted to do so many years ago. Hinami slaps him upon being rescued, but Kaneki knows she will forgive him in time.
Next, he finds Ayato, Yomo-san, and Touka. He somehow feels shaken when he finally sees her after many years as himself, and not as a CCG investigator by the name of Sasaki Haise.
It is too much to bear, and much more when he's fighting Arima of all people. So, he ignores her in favor of Ayato, whom he trusts loves his sister enough to take everyone to safety. But, of course, she would stay. Because she must know what he plans to do. After all is over, he will die.
That's the only way to end things. There's nothing in this world for him. The best thing he can do is die saving everyone else. Touka must understand it. Not when it is Arima who reminds him that, if he dies now, his friends won't survive. Not when he sees Hide, his best friend, in his mind. Hide, who reminds him that he has to find a reason to live. The world is awfully lonely without him, and especially since Kaneki himself is responsible for his death.
But, in the end, he has to live. Then Arima himself, his father figure, dies instead. When he reveals secrets that will help him in the future. When it's now up to Kaneki to fix this broken world. He dares to live, for just a bit longer, until he finds his true purpose. He sees Touka in need of help, and saves her. If he could, he could have smiled. They do see each other later. And then, she brings everyone to her coffee shop, and his old family is reunited with his new allies.
He's soon proclaimed the One-Eyed King, and Kaneki decides to embark on a quest to fix what's wrong, to protect those he cares about. Touka never leaves his side.
He will have to get used to that. Kaneki feels awkward with his new position as One-Eyed King, and he wishes there was a way to make him feel back to normal. It is Touka the first one to give him that sense of normalcy. It somehow makes him feel like he's back at Anteiku, and any time now old Yoshimura-san will appear behind the counter and offer him coffee with his easy smile.
It, however, has a charm of its own. It has many decorations, which catch his eye. It's also filled with books too. He accepts her offer, and watches attentively as she carefully prepares his drink. Why is he beng so impossibly awkward? Shiba said something about how me suppressing my RC cell activity temporarily increased my melanin production or something.
The news of the Cochlea Raid are all over the stations of Tokyo and possibly Japan. It's weird to see his face on TV associated with another name, another life, which Kaneki had to leave behind. The girl in front of him looks unimpressed. Suddenly Kaneki is eighteen again, and Touka has just punched him because he did something stupid at work. And just like that, the spell is broken and part of the uneasiness is gone.
His family is reunited once again. Not everything is lost.
Kaneki would do anything to protect them. Even if that means pushing her away. Kaneki has come to accept the fact that most things in this world are unpredictable, but no one is as unpredictable as Touka is. After deciding the teams that were going to infiltrate the lab, Touka calls him. For a moment there, Kaneki thought she was going to complain, but her words surprise him.
As it so happens, their talk gets delayed because of other pressing issues, like Akira's recovery process and the CCG's next move. Kaneki's been too busy to remember about the talk. However, they eventually end up alone at the: Your hair…" Kaneki exclaims the moment he sees that Touka's light hair went back to black. Her soft and dark strands covering one of her eyes. I'm looking into a big incident involving ghouls.
Apparently, in the past, the CCG was driven almost to extinction at the hands of a 'one-eyed ghoul. She has a way to make him feel like that. He can't afford to get embarrassed again in one conversation. Touka doesn't seem to care, though. His inner monologue keeps asking why their conversation took such a turn, as he keeps drinking from his non-existing coffee.
He is about to understand how unpredictable Touka can really be. Touka is not the first person to worry about him, but she's the first one to tell him. Then she smiles faintly. He stops his train of thought before it leads him somewhere indecent.
Kaneki fears the worst. No matter how much I try, there's a wall I can never jump over, and there's happiness that I can never have. But I'm still hanging on to life. In Tokyo Ghoulshe was a second-year student at Kiyomi High School and later a third-year after the post-Aogiri timeskip. Following its destruction she joins the newly formed organization Goatthus relocating to the 24th ward along with its other members. Contents [ show ] Appearance Touka is a slender teenage girl noted for being very attractive.
She has black purple in the anime hair cut into a bob and long bangs that reach her chin, covering the right side of her face. She appears to be a cute, normal girl that one would not suspect to be a ghoul.
Her facial features and hairstyle bear a strong resemblance to her mother and her brother. She wears her waitress or high school uniform for work and school respectively, whereas her casual clothes are tomboyish streetwear. Her waitress uniform consists of a white shirt rolled up to her elbows, a black vest, a red tie, and a black skirt down to her lower thighs. On top of that skirt, she also wears a brown skirt that reaches her upper thighs. She also wears tight red leggings. As "Rabbit", she wears a long coat jacket, rabbit maskand a blonde, or sometimes a pink, wig to conceal her identity.
After the Aogiri arc, her hair reaches shoulder length, but her signature bangs remain the same. As a child she wore dresses, and bunny hair-clip on the left side of her bangs, and her hairstyle was much the same.
