On the surface, the cafe appeared innocent, plain, and pleasant. However, at its heart, it was also an organization of ghouls of the 20th ward. It provided aid for ghouls in need, managed the feeding grounds of those in the 20th ward, and collected food for others by searching for the bodies of humans who committed suicide. Anteiku had two floors and a basement. There was a storage space along with a meeting room on the second floor.

The mask is mainly made out of leather and covers most of Kaneki's face with the exception of his left eye and hair. The mask has "artificial" teeth and exposed gums on it to make it look more realistic. The mask also has a zipper to increase its efficiency; to prey on meals and consume them while protecting Kaneki's identity without the need to remove it.
