Summary

A magical girl who wants equality and peace. Unselfish and full of justice, her charisma attracts people to her appearance and the strength of her words. Since she must earn her living expenses in order to support her poor family, she is immersed everyday in her multiple part-time jobs.

Doppel Description

The Doppel of dismantlement. Its form is a soot lion. In contrast to the calm shown by the master of this emotion, her Doppel takes the form of a lion that burns with inexhaustible rage, and bites everything to ribbons. It refuses to forgive even the slightest injustice, and dismantles any unfairness in sight. Its personality is utterly relentless. In particular, simply being a Kamihama resident makes one a target for dismantlement, so its master must be cautious when summoning it to avoid harming her allies. If she continues to use this Doppel, she will gradually become unable to forgive even the most minuscule inequality. Its master finds its power hard to manage, but she half-agrees with the lion.

Side Story

Kanagi destroys a witch. She notices that witches have become more numerous and powerful than before, and decides to let every magical girl know about this. She first meets Tsukasa Amane, and says she wants to introduce her to someone. Kanagi takes Tsukasa to Mitama Yakumo. Mitama says Tsukasa looks just like her sister Tsukuyo Amane. Kanagi reveals Tsukuyo and Mitama used to be classmates. Mitama then uses her power on Tsukasa. Kanagi then asks Mitama if she's noticed any changes. Mitama says she's been having more customers from all over Kamihama. Kanagi then explains the increased presence and power of witches, which is something that Mitama has already noticed

Tsukasa then received a call from Tsukuyo, and says she has to head to Mizuna Ward. Tsukasa thanks Kanagi and Mitama and departs. Mitama says she'll close her shop for today, and asks if she can go home with Kanagi. As they walk home, some passerby are surprised to see that Mitama and Kanagi are wearing Daitou uniforms. The next day, Kanagi is working at a maid cafe when Tsukasa arrives. Tsukasa says something happened yesterday. However, Tsukasa runs off before she can explain. Kanagi texts Tsukasa, but Tsukasa tells her not to worry.

Kanagi returns home and is welcomed by her parents. Her mother says she's making dinner. Kanagi points out that her mother forgot to start the rice cooker. Kanagi's brother arrives. Kanagi asks him to set the table. Kanagi's brother asks his father about his leg. Kanagi's father says it still hurts, and says if he wasn't injured things would be easier. Kanagi tells him not to worry. Kanagi's father then notices his son has a bruise on his hand. The boy says some people from the west part of Kamihama City tried to pick a fight. Kanagi's brother claims to have ignored them, but he was so angry he punched a wall. Kanagi thinks about the events of the past few days, and decides she needs to meet the other magical girls.

Later Kanagi meets Himika Mao, and explains what she found about witches. Kanagi says Mao hasn't been a magical girl for that long and she should be careful. Kanagi says she's always available to help and goes off to warn more magical girls. Before she leaves, Himika gives Kanagi her family's special energy drink. Kanagi find she doesn't like it at all. Kanagi then meets with Seika Kumi and Reira Ibuki. Kanagi tells them about the changes in witches. The girls say they thought it was something like that, and their friend Mito Aino also noticed this issue where she lived. Kanagi says they should hunt witches in groups of two from now on. The girls thank Kanagi, who says it's no trouble. Kanagi leaves, and Reira and Seika call her cool.

Kanagi goes to Mitama's place and finds the Amanes leaving. Upon seeing Kanagi the two girls run off. Meeting with Mitama, Kanagi tells her to be careful. Mitama says she's been finding familiars around her place, and she was having Momoko Togame help her clear them out. Kanagi muses that the conflict between east and west has calmed down, since Momoko was part of a team from the west. Kanagi says she's there to help Mitama if she needs it. Kanagi says Mitama must be making good business, but Mitama says most of her customers are first-timers.

Kanagi then asks about the Amane sisters. Mitama says they came to be adjusted. Kanagi says she thinks Tsukasa is avoiding her. Mitama says Kanagi should try to talk to Tsukasa. Kanagi agrees and heads to Tsukasa's house in the Artisan Ward. When she returns home and sees Kanagi, Tsukasa tries to run off. However, Kanagi chases her. Eventually she catches up to Tsukasa and demands to know what's going on. Tsukasa's asks if Kanagi is interested in releasing magical girls from the fate of becoming witches. Kanagi is surprised Tsukasa learned about that. Tsukasa says she can't accept becoming a witch. Kanagi says that Tsukasa chose to become a magical girl, and she is responsible for her choices.

Kanagi says Tsukasa can't renounce her fate, but Tsukasa says there is a way. Tsukasa says there's a group called the Wings of Magius which can save magical girls. She invites Kanagi to join. Kanagi asks if Tsukasa has considered if this group isn't just trying to use her by making false promises. Tsukasa says she trusts, saying she was invited by Tsukuyo, who was invited by Mifuyu Azusa. Kanagi asks if the west is up to something. Tsukasa says it's not about east versus west, it's about saving magical girls. Kanagi says Tsukasa was taken by a pipe dream and calls her pathetic.

Tsukasa says that Kanagi won't change her feelings. Tsukasa says that she and Tsukuyo planned to leave their homes once they graduate high school so they can live together happily. Tsukasa points out that the fate of becoming a witch makes this dream impossible, which is why the sisters went to Magius. Kanagi admits Tsukasa can make her own choices, but asks if she'll be satisfied once she gets what she wants from Magius. Kanagi thinks Magius preys upon magical girls by their weaknesses and can't approve or join. Kanagi says she will protect the magical girls of Kamihama, which includes Tsukasa. However, she says she can't overlook Tsukasa straying from the right path.

Tsukasa says she's probably not the only one, and says all the magical girls of the east want to be freed from becoming a witch. Kanagi says she can't stop that, but she can bring peace to Kamihama. She asks Tsukasa to lend her strength, but Tsukasa says she's too weak. She thanks Kanagi and leaves. Kanagi thinks that people of the east live in a world where they're feared and avoided. Those who become magical girls have it even worse. Kanagi muses that when she became a magical girl she didn't know about becoming a witch. However, she accepts that fate because it was still the result of her choice. However, Kanagi still can't accept the discrimination she gets in Kamihama.

It's shown that the people in west Kamihama have a poor impression of those of the east. In the past, Kanagi wondered how the people of the east could improve that impression. One day Kyubey appeared before her and offered her a contract. Kanagi told him she wanted to change everyone's opinions of Daitou Ward, and that she believes the cause is Kamihama's history. She asked Kyubey to erase the history of Kamihama. Kyubey asked if she's sure about that, saying the change Kanagi could wish for could occur tomorrow, or hundreds of years in the future. Thinking about it, Kanagi agreed that even changing Kamihama's history won't actually change people's opinions of Daitou.

Kanagi decided that if there's something she can improve herself, she wants to know about it. She then made her wish to Kyubey: "I wish to know the reason why everyone hates Daitou". From that wish, she obtained the power to read minds...and also learned there was no reason why people hated Daitou. Kamihama's history and the poor safety of Daitou caused people to hate it without knowing why. Kanagi realized that Kamihama doesn't see individuals, they just see the circumstances around them. This causes a cycle of people getting hurt.

In the present, Kanagi recieves an adjustment from Mitama. Kanagi narrates that the magical girls of the east are all joining the Wings of Magius. She talks with Mitama about it, and Mitama points out the girls from the east are the one who most desire to be saved from their circumstances. Kanagi says she loves Daitou, and wants Kamihama to live in peace and harmony. Kanagi thinks there is only one way to accomplish this: By destroying Kamihama. Kanagi says that when everyone has lost everything, people will be forced to work together and the old differences will vanish.

Kanagi then muses that she doesn't have the power to destroy Kamihama, so all she can do is destroy witches and protect magical girls. Kanagi decides that that she'll do what she can, and if the time comes she'll destroy Kamihama to save Daitou.

Event Appearances

Other Appearances

Kanagi first appeared in Tsukasa Amane's side story, where she urged her to head to a shrine where she met her "doppelganger", Tsukuyo Amane.

Abilities

In Chapter 7, Section 10 Yachiyo explains that Kanagi's personal magic lets her read minds. However Kanagi has to transform and be close to do so.

Etymology

  • The characters of her last name mean "harmony" (和) and "fountain" (泉) respectively.
  • The characters of her first name mean "ten" (十), "seven" (七) and "night" (夜) respectively.

Trivia

  • Her illustator is Sasagi Koushi
  • The appearance of Kanagi's doppel is based off the Lion Dance, a traditional form of dancing in a costume in Asian countries.
  • The description of Kanagi's doppel is a reference to "Neko no jimusho" ("The Cat Office"), a short story by Kenji Miyazawa. Note that the doppels of Iroha Tamaki, Yachiyo Nanami, Mifuyu Azusa and the witch form of Kuro all reference another of Miyazawa's works.
    • "The Cat Office" is about a cat who works at an office with other cats (as if they were humans). Since the cat gets cold easily he sleeps in the fireplace. This causes him to be covered in soot, and so he is known in the story as the "soot cat". His co-worker cats look down on him for this, and ultimately bully the soot cat in the workplace. In the end of the story a lion, implied to be the boss of the cats, secretly observes the workers and reveals himself. He then declares that the office is shut down. The last line of the story is the narrator saying "I half-agree with the lion."
