Summary

A magical girl from Asunaro City. She's a soccer player, and her ability is good enough to say "I will carry the number 10 in All Japan in the future." She is great at using her athleticism to her advantage in battle. She wears a long-sleeved uniform even in summer.

Side Story (First Version)

Kaoru, Umika Misaki and Kazumi were fighting a witch as usual but ended up chasing it as far as Kamihama City, where they got separated. Kaoru knows Umika can handle herself, but she's more worried about Kazumi who could be unstable due to waking up not long ago. Before she can come up with a plan on how to find the two, her soul gem reacts to the presence of a nearby witch. She finds the barrier and enters to find Natuski Utsuho fighting familiars inside. Kaoru teams up with Natsuki, who's grateful for the assistance, and they manage to defeat the witch together.

Back outside, the two girls introduce themselves and Natsuki thanks Kaoru for her help. Kaoru explains to Natsuki everything that's happened. The two girls decide to become friends and Natsuki helps her to navigate through the city in search of her friends. Natsuki cheers Kaoru on in her search and explains she's a cheerleader at school. Kaoru jokes about how soccer and cheerleading go well together when it dawns on Natsuki that Kaoru is the same soccer player that destroyed her school's team at the last tournament. Even if they lost, the team learned a lot from their game that day and grew to be better players. Natsuki cheers Kaoru on once more as they set off on their search.

As the two girls searched all over Kamihama, they talked about Natsuki's many school activities and Kaoru's soccer career. Natsuki also told Kaoru about how the number of witches had greatly increased in Kamihama recently. Kaoru wonders if perhaps the witch she had been chasing with her friends was actually running to Kamihama. Natsuki isn't sure, but says her friends have also noticed the number of witches going up to the point her friend in the cheer club was attacked by a witch.

Natsuki's friend had been witch-kissed and had tried to hurt herself. Thankfully Natsuki had found her in time and was able to stop her. Since then, she had intensified her hunt for witches. Unfortunately, she wasn't strong enough to fight them on her own which is why she had needed Kaoru's help earlier. She admired Kaoru's strength in that battle, but Kaoru insisted it was because they were working on a team, and it's better to fight as a team than go at it alone. She explains that even back home she fights with her friends beside her as a team and how sports are played in a team as well.

Suddenly their soul gems began to react to the presence of a witch. Natsuki offers to fight off the witch alone so Kaoru can continue to search for her friends, but Kaoru won't leave Natsuki by herself now that they're friends. Also, this could be the same witch that attacked them earlier. Natsuki apologizes to Kaoru and gives her a great cheer before they head off in the direction of the magic they sensed.

Soon the girls find the Witch's labyrinth and head inside, but this is a different witch than the one that attacked Kaoru and her friends earlier. Familiars soon begin to swarm them but the girls defeat the familiars easily. As they head deep into the barrier, the witch attacks Kaoru from above. Natsuki is somehow able to create a defensive barrier due to her desire to save Kaoru from harm and Kaoru takes advantage of the pause in the battle to defeat the witch.

As the two congratulate one another on their teamwork, Kaoru transforms back into a regular girl and hangs her head, sad that it wasn't the witch she was looking for. As she prepares to renew her search for her friends, she hears a voice and turns to find Umika there! It seems Umika had teamed up with other magical girls from Kamihama and had had the same idea of tracking a witch in order to find Kaoru. Now that the two friends were reunited, they could both search for their lost friend Kazumi together. Before they leave, Kaoru asks Natsuki for one more cheer of encouragement to get her all fired up.

Side Story (Revised Version)

The second version of Kaoru's side story as edited by Masaki Hiramatsu remains largely the same as the original with a few changes, most notably the speaking tone that Kaoru uses. The other notable differences are:
When Natsuki asks Kaoru about her wish:

  • Original Response: "Ah, that... / Well, it'd be no fun if I wished for that."
  • Revised Response: "Nah, never even considered it. / Working hard to better yourself is what's fun about sports, y'know?"

When Kaoru tells Natsuki about her strengths:

  • Original Response: "I believe that building a strong team is super important."
  • Revised Response: "I know how important it is to build a strong team... and how hard it can be."

When finding Umika:

  • Original Response:

Umika (offscreen): The trace is gone...
Kaoru: That voice!
Umika: Hm?
Umika: K-Kaoru!
Kaoru: Umikaaa!

  • Revised Response:

Umika (offscreen): Yes... I recognize that magic just now. I'm very familiar with it...
Kaoru: Huh...?! That voice!
Umika: .......
Kaoru: Ah, Umika!
Umika: Looks like I finally found you, Kaoru.

Trivia

  • Her illustrator is her co-creator Takashi Tensugi.
  • Along with Kazumi, Kaoru is the first event-limited girl in Magia Record that must be obtained from the gacha when she is available.
  • Her Magia is based on two separate attacks Kaoru uses in the manga:
    • Its use of kicking a ball comes from an attack of the same name (Italian for "Cannonball")
    • The summoning of many Kaoru clones comes from Umika casting Kyoko Sakura's Rosso Fantasma magic on Kaoru in Chapter 19.
      • In the manga, this was accomplished by Kaoru passing through Umika's magic seal (used in her own Magia). Here, it uses Kaoru's own magic seal.
  • Her Doppel's name, Antonio, is probably a reference to San Antonio, a North American city famous for their rodeo and bull riding events.
