kaneki and touka meet again in heaven

After the Clown Siege, Touka dyed her hair back to its original black (purple in . During Touka's next day off, Kaneki waited for her at the meeting place, but she. The character looks rather familiar to a certain half-ghoul hero, and his strange interaction with Touka further proves Haise is Ken Kaneki. Kirishima Touka is not the first girl that Kaneki Ken likes, but she's the first girl that gets him. She seems .. And then, she brings everyone to her coffee shop, and his old family is reunited with his new allies. .. He's in heaven.

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.

That can drive a good man mad. The same thing happened to Jason too, didn't it? He said that a dove did that to him. I guess he was a victim of this world too… And it's this world! That turns a killer, into a hero.

It is this world who's at fault. A ghoul, slaughtered because he or she existed, regardless them ever hurt a human or not. Hated by society because they wanted to live. A dove, praised as a savior who kill ghouls just because they existed. Not even sparing a harmless ghoul child and her mother. Won't even leave ghouls who consumed suicide victims.

Well I blame this world for making a good man bad. It's this world's fault that turned me into a monster.

Touka Kirishima

Now I ain't getting into Heaven …I…. It doesn't matter if I'm an artificial ghoul or not. I can't be saved anymore.

I have destroyed too many lives. If the devil has his way… …It doesn't matter what I do. So why not push everything and try to achieve my goal?

I just want to protect them. And I can't let Kanou do whatever he wants anymore. I swear, I'm gonna live forever For them, my family, I will do anything. I have to protect them. And then we'll go home together. Got debts to pay, in Santa Fe.! I have to protect them, It's the least I can do for everything they've done for me. It's judgment day in Santa Fe… I won't let the same thing with Anteiku happen again.

Even if I have to destroy everything that got into my path. But am I strong enough.? Kaneki continue playing the melody, a sad, yet calming tune to his ears.

Helping Haise to get storinger, helping him keep moving forward every time. Including when he was frightened of his own self, that was hidden, imprisoned, in his own mind. And sign it from a sinner with no name. Kaneki can't help but feel proud when Haise accept him though.

Overcoming your fear is definitely NOT easy. When I meet my maker. That's right, I can't be here if it's not for Hide's support. Like back then in the sewer. If he wasn't there, I can't meet Arima and Akira and the others. If it's not because of him, I doubt I can keep whatever left of my sanity. If it's not because of him, I won't be the 'me' today that exist. Even though he helped me from the shadows… It means a lot.

He's the reason I keep going. I miss you, Hide. I want to see you again. I know when I was giving up and losing control, you will be there to stop me. Just like that time when I fight with Arima. Whether it's in real life or just a fragment of him in my mind. Will he walk away, cause my soul's too late to save…? Kaneki can felt a tear from his ghoul eye rolled down on his left cheek.

But it made him happy too. It was a bittersweet memory. I've fallen too deep into the black void. I have turned into a monster, and I can't return into the me before. I'm so sorry for leaving you… …I don't want to be alone anymore. I miss you, Hide.

‘Tokyo Ghoul:re' Has Everyone Crying Over Its New Episode

I have turned into a monster who cause nothing but destruction. As long as I can be with them. I won't pull back, I'll press forward. If the devil has his way. He won't let anything stop him. He won't let the world get in his way. There's a fragility in her that makes his heart hurt. She could die so easily, and he would never know about it. The thought of her, lying dead in some alley, or having fallen prey to the CCG, makes him nauseous. Touka can't die like that. He won't allow it.

Yet she's never so fragile, as Kaneki sees her then, fighting with her own brother. He's hurt, worn, traumatized, and more fucked up than he's ever been. He can't handle it. Touka looks at him surprised, either by his sudden appearance, the change in his hair, or both. He feels naked, like she can see through all that he went through and all that he did before he reached her.

Kaneki suddenly feels ashamed to be in her presence. He's done awful things she probably shouldn't know about. So he puts her down, in a place where she'll be safe. Resolution invades his body, like a fire that can't be put out. This time, Kaneki will protect her. And he does, breaking half of her brother's bones as punishment for what he did to her. 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.
