Gori participated in the operation against Aogiri Tree in the 11th Ward as a member of the 11th Ward Special Countermeasures Unit.[1][3]

Post-Owl Suppression Operation []

After the Owl Suppression Operation, she was conflicted and emotional, refusing to believe the reports that Koutarou Amon had died. When she spotted Akira Mado, she took her anger out on her. She berated her for not feeling anything when she lost both her partner and a classmate, but was taken aback when Mado teared up, saying she loved them both.[4]

Post-Third Cochlea Raid[]

Misato met Iwao Kuroiwa together with Kuramoto Itou and Takeomi Kuroiwa after the Special Class Investigator Meeting following the Third Cochlea Raid and the slaughter of the Washuu Clan.[5]

Clown Siege[]

Following the Clowns' attack on several CCG Branch Offices she defended the 22nd Ward Branch Office as part of the Kuroiwa Squad.[6]

On the day of Takeomi and Yoriko Kosaka's wedding, Misato caught Yoriko's bouquet by surprise.[8]

Dragon Arc[]

She was a part of the CCG Investigator team who battled the Taxidermied Owl. She was attacked by the Owl and managed to stay alive thanks to her quinque taking the blow but could no longer continue to fight.


She served at the TSC to support Iwao Kuroiwa's recovery. She receives passionate appeals from male personnel vying for her dedication, currently receiving proposals and pending.


Koutarou Amon[]

She is secretly in love with him, though unable to confess her feelings out loud. When they worked together during the 11th Ward Battle, her embarrassment resulted in her acting gruff towards him to hide her actual feelings. Afterwards, she devoted time to attempting to learn to cook in hopes of conveying her affections towards him but even then, was unable to tell him. After he was declared dead during the Owl Suppression Operation, she became hysterical and refused to believe the reports.

Power and Abilities[]

Although she has not been seen working the field during investigations, she has instead been shown to perform well in larger combat operations such as the assault on the Aogiri base in the 11th ward, and the 20th ward's Owl Suppression Operation. Taking the role of ranged fire support for her allies in the field, Misato shows herself to be a capable shooter.

  • Emelio: An ukaku quinque with an organic shape featuring crystalline teeth-like sides surrounding the weapon's muzzle. Misato's usage of the weapon resembles the manner in which the typical ukaku ghoul wields their kagune, firing barrages of crystallized Rc cells taking out opponents at range, though Emelio appears to sport a somewhat greater accuracy than what ukaku generally display. Like ukaku ghouls, Emelio is said to run out of energy rather quickly, therefore limiting its use to short-term engagements.


  • To Iwao Kuroiwa: "Mr. Kuroiwa, you're always telling me to not give up without a fight, not to cry until the battle is done. And that you never know until you try, and to not set limits for yourself, and if you do have limits to just smash right on through them... That someday you'll have to depend on yourself, that the only thing you should never do is run away, to not let yourself regret things, to take whatever comes you way, to keep moving forward."[9]


  • The name Misato means "beautiful" (美) (mi) and "township, home town, village, native place, district" (郷) (sato).
  • Misato's surname Gori means "five" (五) (go) and "village" (里) (ri).
