** Ken Kaneki admits to himself that his duel with Arima at the finale of the original series was a failed suicide attempt. He wasn't able to "die properly", and after regaining his memories in the sequel... he decides to "die in style". Over the next several months, he isolates himself from those that care about him and places himself into a position of authority within the [[TheHunter CCG]]. This is all leading up to betraying his superiors during a critical mission, arranging a prison break with a two-part SelfSacrificeScheme at it's core. After rescuing Hinami, he intends to goad Arima into killing him once and for all. It doesn't end as he planned, with Arima repeatedly wounding him while goading him to fight harder. A hallucination of his childhood friend, Hide, makes him realize his own conflicted feelings over dying and resolve to go on living in spite the pain.
