Terang aja, gw sedih banget kenapa Kaneki harus mati. Belum lagi ingatan-ingatan masa lalunya yang sangat mengharukan, membuat kejadian tiap kejadian memilukan. Kaneki waktu itu datang dan nekat ikut pertempuran massif CCG vs ghoul di distrik 20 buat nyelametin dua orang temannya di anteiku dan manager. Tapi yang ada malah semuanya kebunuh. Ken Kaneki (金木研, Kaneki Ken) is an one-eyed ghoul, who is currently living under the identity of Haise Sasaki (佐々木琲世, Sasaki Haise) — the First Rank Ghoul Investigator — also known as Eyepatch (眼帯, Gantai). After being captured by Aogiri Tree, the traumatic events he went through led him to be able to accept his Ghoul-side.

As a result, the Commission of Counter Ghoul (CCG) was created to combat them. Kaneki, now a one-eyed ghoul (a type known for being extraordinarily powerful), finds shelter in Anteiku, a local coffee shop staffed by friendly ghouls.
