Also known as the Rabbit, Touka Kirishima is one of the main characters in Ishida Sui's Tokyo Ghoul. Touka serves as a waitress at the famous coffee shop known as Anteiku, being a Ghoul who tries not to resort to violence most of the time. With peace finally prevailing between humans and ghouls by the end of the series, Touka lives a happy life with her husband, Kaneki Ken, and her daughter Ichika Kaneki. As the lead female in Tokyo Ghoul, it's not a surprise to see her being a fan-favorite. Here are ten things you probably didn't know about Touka Kirishima. Throughout Tokyo Ghoul, Touka's character has had a duality about her. She often flips between kindness and rage. Although she's inherently kind, this nature of hers is repressed by her rage for humans who often hunt her kind down. With the progression of the story, Touka's character evolves as well, and her kindness comes to the surface at a drastic speed. By the end of the series, Touka is more kind than she's filled with rage, as she finds it in her to forgive those who she once considered her enemy as well, displaying great maturity in the process. Despite being born as a Ghoul, Touka is very insecure about her true identity.
39;s happened in her life time and again.
This is likely because she has always had to blend herself among humans and suppress her real nature, as directed by her father, Arata Kirishima when she was a kid. Touka was surprised when Kimi noticed her Kagune and called her beautiful, despite her being a ghoul. Although it helps in improving her self-esteem, she largely doesn't take pride in being a Ghoul, yet she's ready to defend her kind with everything she has if it ever comes down to it. Although she often dons a tough exterior, Touka has her own with fears and anxieties, just like any other person. One of her biggest known fears is being abandoned by the people she loves, which is something that's happened in her life time and again. Her mother, her father, and her brother have all left her behind, which is also one of the reasons why she has low self-esteem. After losing Kaneki, Touka almost broke down, but thankfully, everything worked out for her towards the end. By the end of the series, she lives a happy life, in a happy family with her friends, both human and ghoul, all around her. Touka's maternal uncle, Renji Yomo, has played an important role in her life in Tokyo Ghoul. According to the manga, Yomo was responsible for training her in combat to defend herself if the need arises. As such, Yomo knows all of Touka's strengths and weaknesses. Yomo and Touka would often take missions together when they were at Anteiku, especially ones where they would have to restock on food for the ghouls who didn't hunt humans.
Unbeknownst to Touka, Yomo has always watched her and Ayato's back ever since their parents passed away. Being a Ghoul, Touka is capable of manifesting a powerful Kagune. She has an Ukaku type Rc, and has the ability to form a humongous wing from her back which can also unleash a barrage of projectiles. With time, Touka gains enough skill to form a second wing and the size of her attacks gets significantly larger as well. Touka also possesses the ability to release a lightning aura from her kagune, capable of causing large-scale destruction. While she doesn't fight often, Touka can fight very well, which is not a surprise since she's trained under Renji Yomo himself. Touka Kirishima's name holds quite a deep meaning. Her first name 'Touka' means 'to direct' (tou) and perfume (ka). Similarly, her second name also holds an imagination meaning. According to the author, Kirishima comes from the combination of 'Kiri', which can be literally translated to 'Mist', and 'shima', which means 'island' in Japanese. Whether her name has a connection to her personality in any way is not known, but since the author, Ishida Sui, has a knack for choosing interesting names with a hidden meaning behind them, that might as well be the case here. Touka's hair has changed quite often, both in the anime and the manga. In the anime, her hair is mostly blue, although in Tokyo Ghoul :re, the shade of her hair is slightly darker. In the manga, Touka's hair is black initially, but as the manga went on, Ishida Sui started to avoid inking her hair because it took him a lot of time.
Instead, he simply imagined that Touka has black hair. After getting married to Kaneki Ken, the two start their own little family. Their firstborn daughter is named Ichika Kaneki. Like Ken Kaneki himself, Ichika has shades of black and white in her hair. Touka is also seen pregnant with another child in the last chapter of Tokyo Ghoul :re. To date, we don't know anything about the unborn child of Touka and Kaneki, except for the gender, which is presumably a boy. Hopefully, Ishida Sui will give us some more information on this lovely family in the future. As seen throughout the series, Touka Kirishima enjoys her school life quite a lot. She treasures her memories with Yoriko among others, and it helps her calm her insecurities as she blends with people like a normal school girl. Touka also likes rabbits. In fact, her initial alias in the series was 'Rabbit'. According to Touka, she dislikes Ghoul Investigators since they've stolen everything from her. Other than that, Touka also isn't fond of the stuff that Kaneki likes, such as classical literature. Despite having gorgeous hair herself, Touka is known to be awful at cutting other people's hair. She's previously given Hinami and Yomo haircuts, both of which were admittedly horrible, as she ended up ruining their bangs. In the anime, Kaneki Ken seems to think that she's good at cutting hair as he, surprisingly, liked the haircut that she gave to Hinami. Whether he actually believes she's good at this, or if he said this not to hurt her feelings is something we will likely never know.

Before Sword Art Online was published, Kawahara had posted Sword Art Online novels on his website and there are still a few side stories on Sword Art Online, although the original novels have been removed. In addition, Kawahara has published a side story of Sword Art Online in one of his other works, Accel World. In the tenth volume of Accel World, there is a chapter where it depicts a cross over between Sword Art Online and Accel World. Several of the side stories that he has released are in a collection called the Sword Art Online Material Edition, sold at the Comitia dōjinshi-selling event, which range from novels to manga. However, all of the art in the Material Editions is drawn by Kawahara himself. Aside from the light novels written by Kawahara, there are also two spin-offs written by other authors with supervision by him. The first one is Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online series written by Keiichi Sigsawa and illustrated by Kouhaku Kuroboshi, while the other is Sword Art Online Alternative: Clover's Regret, written by Watase Souichirou and illustrated by Ginta. While both of these series take place in the same world as the main series written by Kawahara, they each feature different characters as the focus compared to the main series.
