Honestly, I really want Hidekane to be endgame because if Touken stays a thing by the end of this whole mess I just know Hide will accept it with a big goddamn smile and he‘ll be so happy for Kaneki but I just think Hide has been through too much and I want him to be just as happy as Kaneki and I like to think that that‘d be the case when/if they‘re together.
Ehh. Headcanons are all good and dandy, but if you’re asking me…
Kaneki is not going to leave Touka for Hide. She loves him, too, and I don’t think it’s appropriate for Kaneki’s character– at this point of the story, where he chooses to live just to see his wife again– to abandon her for someone else. I would personally balk if that happened. It’s not romantic or touching or anything.
So, consider this instead:
Touka and Kaneki staying together doesn’t mean Hide is going to be unhappy. We still don’t know if Hide’s “confession” was a “confession” at all– he only said he loved Kaneki (I say I love my friends all the time and I mean it??), and that doesn’t mean his heart is going to be broken over a relationship he actually encouraged. Honestly, I think he would be the most genuinely enthusiastic, supportive fan of their relationship out of anybody, and all three of them would be a packaged deal together.
