After Yamori had left Kaneki, Haru and Shuu would occasionally come and clean up Kaneki and the area around him. Promising to save him at some point.
Soon after, both him and Haru were brought in front of Kaneki. While they trembled in fear, Yamori demanded Kaneki to choose one of them to die in order to save the other. Failing to choose someone, Kaneki watched as Haru was strangled to death by Yamori in front of Shuu, who was briefly murdered by the same man who killed his girlfriend afterwards.
