There is something that has been bothering me for a while, why if Hide knew absolutely everything why he didn't do something sooner? All this shit could have been avoided if he was like "yo, I'm not dead, let me help you" but he decided to act until the very last moment, it is really starting to get on my nerves
That is the Question. It’s not really out of character for Hide; after all he didn’t confront Kaneki after he cut Hide out of his life in the first TG. Hide doesn’t really seem to push Kaneki to do things outside of Kaneki’s comfort zone. Like Saiko, Hide does not act until his back is pressed up against a wall. They love people, but my guess is that Saiko and Hide are both afraid that if they push too much they’ll lose the person they love. But they lose people anyways, so.
However. There also might be more to this. Hide mentioned the Washuu are chasing him, and the why might just answer this question and be important to fleshing out Hide as a character.
Thank you for the ask!
