The main purpose of the Anteikas is not only to feed the spirits that choose not to hunt, but also to maintain the perfect balance of harmony in the XX District. Anteiku members take a non-violent approach until provoked, which earns them the respect and recognition of a few people in the community. Anteiku members such as Kaneki, Touka, and Hinami act as ward protectors, only taking action against those who pose a serious threat to their species or humans. Each member of Anteiku has unique traits and deep backstories that depend on the broad nature and complexity of the faction.
Deeper than the café facade, Anteiku's role in the series is unparalleled as it beautifully portrays the struggle for the coexistence of humans and spirits, emphasizing a hopeful and peaceful vision for all in an increasingly divided world. Despite the merciless struggles and heartbreaking losses, members of the Anteikas carry their torch and hold on to their core principles with an unwavering spirit.
A ghost himself, Yoshimura founded Anteiku in hopes of promoting coexistence and understanding between humans and ghosts. Over time, he formed a team of spirits working towards the same goal, including Touka, Nishiki, Hinami, and Yomo. Their efforts were often dangerous, but their convictions remained strong in the face of setbacks.
When it started, Anteiku was not only a source of food for ghouls who didn't want to hunt people, but also a lot of information and advice for young or lonely ghosts. Despite serving the ghosts with meals made from sacrificial suicide victims, Anteiku always stressed the importance of his duty to the deceased and advised him on how to properly pay his respects.
However, Anteiku's peaceful existence was interrupted when the cafe was discovered by the Counter Ghoul Commission (CCG), and Yoshimura eventually sacrificed himself to protect its members. The remaining members of Anteiku were forced to hide and regroup. This is how another cafe :Re, founded by former members of Anteikas, appeared, symbolizing a new chapter in their joint history.
In the annals of Tokyo Ghoul history, Anteiku will always stand out as more than just a haven: a beacon of hope in a world of seemingly endless conflict between ghouls and humans.
Also, despite the harsh reality and constant threat of danger, Anteiku was a symbol of peace and coexistence in the Tokyo Ghoul universe. His importance in creating a sense of unity and compassion among the spirits has influenced many and reinforced his importance throughout the storyline.
The appeal of the ancestors goes beyond the borders of the earth. Anteikai's hiding place opens up to an awesome view of the old town, a mosaic of traditional houses imbued with a modern touch. Lush tree canopies shade the picturesque streets, creating a wonderful mystical atmosphere, giving ghosts lively cover and hiding from lurking pigeons. But he is also modest and good at hiding the secrets inside. The neighborhood has a heavy atmosphere, reminders of the struggle of ghost life everywhere. The lines between humans and ghouls are blurred, making it the perfect backdrop for the constant ebb and flow of power and responsibility that falls on Anteik.
