“It’s better to be hurt than to hurt others. Nice people can be happy with just that.”
When Kaneki was a normal human, he was a shy and reserved person, with Hide being his only close/best friend. He was extremely gentle and appeared to be bullishness most of the time. Following his torturous experience with Yakumo Oomori, Kaneki mentally snapped. He has since then developed a much more aggressive and bloodlusted personality. From that point on, he becomes determined to protect the ones he cares for, even if it means having to commit selfish and horrible crimes to achieve his goals.
1) Kaneki (金木) means "golden tree" and Ken (研) means "to grind/polish" or "study."
2) The sudden color changes in Kaneki's hair are caused by the suppression of his Rc cell activity which has caused temporary melanin production that causes his hair color to change.").
3) Kaneki has a habit of touching his chin with his left hand when he is hiding something. This habit appears to be subconscious, as he still does it even after his memory loss.
