It seems Haise visited re more than a couple times.
A (blatantly biased) Chronological Summary of Tousaki
Haise foreshadows their meeting by reading haiku poetry written by Taneda Santouka (its written differently but just let me reach here ok) who had a son called ‘Ken’ and wrote “In a café we debate decadence a summer butterfly flits” like I don’t even care if thats accidental, how fucking Tousaki is that
Haise’s nose kagune leads him to the “correct fragrance” (ding ding ding, name pun) and they meet (again) for the first time
handsome s h o o k
He gets a boner over the taste of Touka’s coffee
Then cries Ghibli Tears™
Touka offers her handkerchief and! THEY! BRUSH! FINGERS! (and Haise scores himself a free hanky)
Haise dabs away his tears and tries to convince Touka he’s not crying because her coffee tasted awful
and he demonstrates he has functional vision by THINKING! THAT! TOUKA! IS! BEAUTIFUL!
After leaving the cafe, Haise tries to fight off another boner
The next day he looks exhausted, as if he’s spent all night thinking about flinging himself into the sun to avoid the embarrassment of crying in front of the pretty waitress
then at the CCG meeting, instead of focusing on saving people’s lives he’s daydreaming about her
THEN HE :RETURNS (possibly to give back the hanky) and they have an epic sexual tension stare off
and Touka, the sneaky little shit, plays coy as if she doesn’t already know exactly what he does for a job or that he’d be interested in the books lining the shelves
An Unspecified Amount of Time Later: Haise dresses to impress in a dandy striped waist coat to go back to :re, where he meets Touka (with her hair up) and they look so cute and awkward af shuffling their feet like 2 teenagers asking each other to prom
and another unexplained meeting with PinstripeVest!Haise and Touka with her hair down this time??? right under our noses this entire time???
AND FINALLY! Haise wondering if she was on a date ON CHRISTMAS!
