Characters Edit

Summary Edit

Touka Kirishima and Ken Kaneki race through the streets in search for Hinami Fueguchi. Kaneki decides to make a phone call to Yoshimura, to tell him of Hinami’s disappearance. Touka assumes that the newspaper she gave Hinami is the reason why she ran away. She is then reminded of what her younger brother Ayato Kirishima, said to her the night he left to join Aogiri Tree - she must learn to take responsibility for her own deeds.

Close to Kusahara Elementary School, Touka finds Hinami via her scent. When offered to go home, Hinami refuses, implying that no matter where she hides, she’d be killed by the doves too. Hinami also confronts Touka about her killing Ippei Kusaba. Touka notices that Hinami is clutching to the disembodied hand of her mother’s corpse, questioning the notion that it is wrong for ghouls to live. Touka reassures her that the Commission of Counter Ghoul holds no genuine information, except for those who saw her during Ryouko Fueguchi’s execution.

Touka swears to protect Hinami, and calls Kaneki to inform him about Hinami’s whereabouts. Suddenly Kureo Mado intervenes. Kaneki contemplates on meeting them at Anteiku, but upon seeing Koutarou Amon speaking on the phone, implying the emergence of ghouls nearby, Kaneki puts on his mask and decides to stall Amon.
