Shiki Kijima (キジマ 式, Kijima Shiki) was an Associate Special Class Ghoul Investigator.


Kijima was an exceptionally strange looking individual with a rotund figure. His face and body were heavily scarred, with discolored skin grafts and facial features that appeared to have been badly mangled or burned in the past. He wore a distinctive black hat and suit, with a red bow tie, and had a peg leg.


Kijima was obsessed with chasing the ghoul Jail in order to dispel his regret that his subordinates were killed and his resentment that he himself was injured.

While he did not forget to show his courtesy to anyone, his character was cruel and vicious, for example, he tortured a member of the Rose family and ripped out his tongue in the process before posting it as a video.

He also seemed to hold more than a little bit of self-loathing as he did not care about the danger involved with provoking the Rose, saying he did not care how his own ugly body was used. He was ultimately giggling and laughing before his death, signifying how little he thought of his own life and his joy of dying.

Despite his seemingly respectful side, Kijima had an eerily playful side as well. He was portrayed as carrying a mocking attitude towards the ghouls he "interrogated."



In the past, Kijima worked as a Cochlea interrogator.

At the scene of the Jail incident, he was seriously injured and ended up with a patched up body.

Rose ExterminationEdit

Kijima met Haise Sasaki at Cochlea, introduced himself and informed Sasaki that they are working together on the Rose investigation.[6]

He later took part in the ambush of Matsumae and her followers along with Taishi Fura and Hairu Ihei, using Nimura Furuta as bait. While Ihei held off Matsumae, Kijima took the chance to capture another Rose with his capture-use quinque.

He was at the meeting for the Rose investigation.

After the Tsukiyama Family Extermination Operation commenced, he was at the Luna Eclipse, while the CCG fought against the resisting ghouls who worked for the Tsukiyama family. The Associate Special-Class warned Nimura Furuta, his subordinate, to not to slip on the blood, as he killed Kurei using his quinque, Rotten Follow.

Later on, he was part of the group that confronted Matsumae and Mairo on one of the upper levels of the building. He passively observed the battle between Ihei and Matsumae, complimenting the ghoul on her strength. After Ihei was killed in battle, he trembled/shivered upon looking at Ihei's dead body, and then advanced on Matsumae with Rotten Follow while explaining how he killed Yuuma and Aliza with it.


Kijima's demise at the hands of his own quinque.

Mairo, thought dead of his injuries, managed to spear him through the shoulder and draw his attention away from Matsumae. In that moment, she slashed off his arm and sent Rotten Follow into the air over them both. It fell blade-first with the engine still going and sliced into his skull as he giggled wildly in his final moments. His partner, Furuta, lookd on with horror and shock. Kijima did not die immediately though, vibrating from the shock of the injury and swinging his quinque around unsteadily, while speaking gibberish and peeing himself, he attempted to run at Matsumae, removing his quinque from his head before finally falling face down.


Shikorae Edit

Their relationship was extremely hostile, with each of them brutalizing the other as revenge. After Kijima killed his brother, Rio sought revenge by slaughtering the investigator's squad. Kijima was left horrifically maimed, leading him to in turn seek out "Jail" and capture him. While Rio was imprisoned, Kijima taunted and tortured him on a regular basis until his mind was left broken. The cycle of revenge only ended with Kijima's death.

Haise SasakiEdit

Kijima and Sasaki worked together along with Itou Squad for the Rose assignment. Kijima has expressed concern for Sasaki's soft side toward ghouls, and Sasaki seems to notice a dark aura surrounding Kijima.

Nimura FurutaEdit

Furuta was assigned as Kijima's partner.

Take HirakoEdit

Suprisingly, Hirako feels at ease around Kijima, compared to the others, as exhibited in a omake. 

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

Kijima is shown to use two different quinque:

  • Tetoro: A bikaku "capture quinque". It is able to shoot out thick wires with a 3-leg hook at each side.
  • Rotten Follow: A rinkaku quinque in the shape of a large chainsaw, utilizing a kakuhou as an engine, and quinque ores that function as the chainsaw's teeth.

Manga Depiction Edit


  • To Koori: "I don't value my life. If I were as pretty as you, then maybe I would a little. But I don't care how an ugly body like mine gets used."
  • To himself: "My, my… This wont do… Tricking princess Hairu and her men like that… (stare) Bye, bye beauty…"
  • To Matsumae: "Shall I get a taste of you as well? With this quinque which I used to chop up Mr. Yuma and 'The Chatty Aliza'."
  • Last words: "I want cheese..."
