A Magical Girl who always looks sleepy. She is always tired since she can't wake up during the day, and is in danger of being held back a grade due to her low attendance. But her eyes are sharp during the middle of the night, and when exterminating Witches, she displays a dignified expression, almost like a different person.

Doppel Description

Hepialidae, Kushu's doppel

The Doppel of salivation. Its form is a moth. The master of this emotion floats through dreams between sleeping and waking, yet continues to seek the light of the sun. This Doppel’s circular form symbolizes the very same sun that its master seeks, and it floats through the air in the hopes of brightly illuminating its vicinity. But despite scattering powder from its wings to illuminate its surroundings, each mote of dust only emits the faint light of a distant star, and cannot emit anything stronger than that. The unsatisfied Doppel attempts to make the powder shine brighter by firing its own rays of light, but the erratically-reflected light builds up excess energy, explodes, and catches its surroundings in the blast. Yet the Doppel is satisfied to see such a bright light, even if only for a brief instant.

Side Story

Warning, this section contains spoilers.

Karin Misono arrives at the Adjuster shop to be adjusted by Mitama Yakumo, finding Kushu sleeping inside Mitama's tent. Mitama tells Karin about Kushu, who wakes up asking if she is in school and commenting on how difficult it is to take night classes. Mitama introduces both girls and Kushu explains to Karin that she can't be awake at day, but she falls asleep again. When Kushu wakes up, Mitama gives her black tea, Mitama asks Kushu what other types of teas she likes and she says that she likes herbal tea, rose hip tea and hibiscus tea, which are red tones as Mitama mentions. Karin still doesn't understand why Kushu goes to classes at night and Mitama explains to her that when the sun rises, Kushu falls asleep as if she would faint and she can't get up until it starts to get dark.

Kushu continues sleeping and Karin asks why she is there. Mitama says that she settled her in early and has been letting her sleep in her tent until she can go to school. Karin asks if Kushu's condition is an illness and Mitama denies it but before explaining, Ui Tamaki and Little Kyubey arrive. Ui had gone to give him a plastic plant. Mitama invites Ui to have tea with her and Karin, but when Ui enters the room Kushu wakes up and tries to attack Little Kyubey upon seeing him and believing that it is Kyubey, but everyone tells her that she is no longer Kyubey. Kushu detransforms and introduces himself. The others explain to Kushu that Little Kyubey is no longer part of the Incubator network and is now her own being. Karin asks if Kushu hates Kyubey and she replies that he despises him, while Mitama says that many girls hate him because of how he deceived them all, and Kushu says that she has despised Kyubey since she became a magical girl and reveals that the effect of her desire is to blame for her condition. Ui asks why Kushu sleeps when the sun rises once Kushu explains that her wish was: I just want the morning to never come...

Kushu explains to Karin and Ui about her past and how she used to move from one place to another because of her parents' work. Kushu explains that it all started when she came to another country due to another magical girl's wish that she befriend him. Kushu explains how her friend Aneka saved her life from a witch and convinced her to make a contract with Kyubey by saying that she used magic like in their favorite book, Good-Bye Fable. Kushu explains that she made her wish because she was bored with her everyday day life, and wanted to belong to the world of fantasy night like when she read stories with Aneka and how her magical girl form is similar to the protagonist of Good-Bye Fable, "The Last Inquisitor." Karin excitedly mentions that it is the same as with her and her magical girl form that resembles Phantom Thief Magical Kirin, while Ui asks Kushu if she has a hard time waking up because of her wish and she tells him yes, so then she stops. she "morning will never come" because she is not able to see it anymore.

Mitama says that she understands Kushu's hatred of Kyubey, but she says that she hates him more for knowing the truth about magical girls. Karin tells Kushu that he should protest to Kyubey for granting her wish like that, but Kushu sadly says that he did it a long time ago but he only told her that if the sun disappeared because of her wish, humanity and all life on Earth would I would die. Ui asks if she can't be cured, but Kushu assures that she is not sick and it is the effects of her wish on her body, so she has only managed to get the Santa Liliana Academy to allow her to attend night classes for her reasons. particular symptoms. Ui says that it is a difficult school to get into because it is Touka Satomi's school, but Kushu says that she had already entered since elementary school and only had to re-transfer upon returning to Kamihama City. Kushu explains all the rules that she must follow to not lose the year, Ui thinks it is difficult but Kushu says that they are very considerate of her and as if she does not comply she will have to repeat the year. Little Kyubey is still upset, but Kushu promises not to do anything to him. In her mind Kushu wonders if she has already become a protagonist too.

Mitama prepares the tea and serves it to the three girls. Ui notices the red color on her and Kushu asks why she made rose hip tea and Mitama says it's because Kushu told her she likes her. At that moment Mitama's cell phone rings and Kushu gets scared spilling some of her tea, Mitama cleans Kushu as an apology and notices how long her canine teeth are and how they easily got a little painted with the red tea and thinks how it seems like Kushu drunk blood. Mitama later says that she has received a message from Mikage Yakumo, her younger sister, who tells her about a rumor she heard about: a vampire girl in the Hokuyo Mountains, near the district town.

Mitama mentions that everything comes from a page called Rapunzel and Karin mentions how there is also a vampire girl in Magical Kirin and mentions how the vampire girl spread rumors and how Kirin said that "within a hundred lies a single truth is hidden." Karin wants to go with the others but Ui refuses because her sister Iroha Tamaki and the others wouldn't let her go out so late. Karin asks Kushu and she agrees to accompany her. Mitama worries about them, and upon receiving a new message she says that she will accompany them, because her younger sister wants to investigate and Mitama offered to go in her place to tell Mikage what she has seen, and thus the three girls agree to investigate. Kushu remembers that she has class and runs to her school while Mitama starts thinking about how Kushu looked like a vampire after drinking her tea.

The three girls get together on the weekend, and Karin brings with her a stake, a silver cross, and garlic. Mitama says she is "ready" too and reveals that she brought a picnic tablecloth and some sandwiches that she bought from a bakery in her neighborhood. Karin says that's not what they went for, but Mitama asks them if they brought anything else. Karin complains that Mitama doesn't listen to her while Kushu says that she brought a bottle with water and some cherry tomatoes that he always brings with her. Mitama asks Karin and she reluctantly answers that she brings sweets and chocolates. Mitama scolds Karin for not bringing things to her picnic, but Karin insists that they didn't go on a picnic and asks Mitama if she forgot that they went vampire hunting. Mitama says that she didn't forget and insists that it's better for them to have fun before being afraid, to which Kushu agrees. When the girls find a place to put their picnic, Mitama hears a noise and goes to investigate it. Karin thinks it's like a horror manga and upon hearing Mitama scream she and Kushu go in her direction, but only find her with Riko Chiaki and Ashley Taylor. Karin and Kushu ask about the scream and Mitama says that it was a scream of joy at finding Riko and Ashley. Karin apologizes for misunderstanding what happened.

Ashley and Riko introduce themselves to Kushu and explain that they had also heard about the rumors of the vampire girl and went to record a horror video about it. Riko tells Kushu that Ashley is from the United States while Karin shares that Kushu has traveled to many foreign countries. Ashley asks Kushu in English if she prefers to speak English or Japanese, and Irina responds that she prefers Japanese because she is not as good at speaking English, which she says in English. Karin does not understand, so Mitama and Riko explain the conversation to her, which makes Karin sad as she is the only one who does not understand English. They all agree to go together to investigate, because Riko has permission from her parents and they believe that five girls would be better to investigate. Karin asks Kushu what is happening when she sees him smile and she says that due to her desire she cannot live with her classmates, so living with all of them is not bad and gives her a lot of joy.

The girls begin their investigation, Riko almost trips and is helped by Mitama. Karin comments that it seems better for Kushu to move and she says it's because she can see better than others in the dark. Mitama says that Kushu really is nocturnal and she agrees with him but she says that she is still sleepy because she is still getting late. Ashley stops Kushu from falling asleep and asks her to be more careful, since she even turned off her camera to walk. Mitama suggests that they rest because she is not sure where they are, but Kushu says that she recognizes where they are because she constantly goes to that part of the mountains at night and reports that they are close to the City's borders with the outside. Ashley asks her if she is local to the area but Kushu says that her house is not nearby, she only "purges" witches in that area and on the outskirts of the City like that area. Mitama insists that they continue on the path because Kushu knows the place, but eventually it gets dark. Kushu finds a cut in the trees and wonders what it is, but Mitama says it looks like a cut. The girls think it could be a ritual and see traces of what appear to be dragged objects. Riko wonders if they are the vampire's victims. At that moment the girls find a camera and realize that there is a video there with Rui Mizuki, who ends up throwing away her camera and disappears... For her part, Kushu is still a little sleepy.

The girls ran out when they saw Rui's video and heard the mysterious sound of it. Ashley and Riko don't recognize Rui, but Mitama knows who he is, however, she can't explain something because everyone is still scared. Mitama realizes that Kushu was left behind and they all decide to go back for her, while Kushu is left sad for being left behind, but she suddenly realizes that the sound is one that she is very familiar with. Kushu is hungry and starts eating her cherry tomatoes. At that moment Kushu feels the presence of a witch and realizes that there is a witch in the area. The other girls in their search for Kushu find the witch barrier and also enter the labyrinth, watching as Kushu finishes the witch, making a particular sound with her weapons.

Karin and Ashley complement Kushu's outfit because of how cute it is. Mitama notices that Kushu's teeth look red and she says that they are leftover cherry tomatoes and is embarrassed because she couldn't see herself because he went in to fight the witch. Mitama says that then that means that the vampire girl from the Rumor is probably Kushu, which surprises everyone. Kushu asks what she's talking about, and Mitama says that because of her pale skin and her big fangs, people could have mistaken her for a vampire when they saw her at night in her magical girl outfit, saying that Kushu probably had traces of tomato in her teeth at the time. having rescued people from witches, they could have mistaken her for a vampire.

Mitama asks about her scream and asks Kushu if the witch seemed familiar, to which Kushu says yes and it was probably a familiar that grew up in a copy of the witch she defeated a few days ago. Later Mitama shows the video to Kushu and asks him if he recognizes her, to which Kushu says yes and that it is Rui, her friend whom she recently met and with whom she defeated the same witch the day before. The girls watch the video and realize that Rui recorded Kushu entering the witch's barrier before being caught by the same barrier and dropping her camera, which she hands to Ashley and Riko asking them to return the camera to her. Rui because she goes to their school. Kushu thinks it's humiliating to be mistaken for a vampire when her outfit is supposed to be based on an inquisitor, but Ashley doesn't think it is because Kushu is like a Holy Inquisitor who carries powers of light and darkness and Karin says she thinks the same, but Kushu and Riko don't understand what they're talking about. The girls then wonder where the marks on trees and things dragged on the ground come from, but upon hearing cuts and seeing the silhouette of a white-haired girl, the five scared girls believe that it is the real vampire girl and run away. .

Since almost everything that happened (except the fight with the witch and the conversation about magical girls) was recorded by Ashley, she uploads a video telling about her experience and that of her friends and how they were almost sacrificed. In Mitama's store; Karin, Kushu and Mitama watch the video. Mitama is glad that Ashley is warning people to stay away from that place in the Hokuyo Mountains, and Kushu hopes that means fewer people being captured by witches. Mikage was scared by Ashley's video, so Mitama considers it a success and Karin is happy. At that moment Ui and Little Kyubey arrive at the place, as they went for an adjustment for Ui.

Ui greets Karin and Kushu, saying that he heard that they found a real vampire. Karin says that the two of them, along with Ashley and Riko, have taken it upon themselves to warn others about the place and shows them another video that Ashley's "Rapunzel" page uploaded, being the video of Rui and Kushu the one Sana Futaba told Ui about. Mitama says that Rui gave the video to Ashley and she edited it to hide Kushu and use it as evidence of "the vampire girl", and they explain to Ui how they confused Kushu with the vampire girl. Surprised, Ui wonders if the vampire girl is real, and what she is doing at that moment. At that moment it is revealed that there is no vampire girl, since it was really Chika Aoba, who is building a small hub for herself. Chika feels bad for scaring Kushu and the others yesterday, since what they saw was the remains of her animal traps and the cuts from her axes in the trees he was cutting down, and he intends to put her traps further away from the She walks past people so as not to scare anyone else, hoping they won't say strange things about her, but Chika decides to continue investigating the area before moving to the Hokuyo mountains.

  • The characters of her last name mean "enter" (入) and "name" or "reputation" (名) respectively.


  • Her illustrator is "Shino", who is known as the illustrator of the Clockwork Planet light novel series and also designed Kako Natsume.
  • Her design is vampire-themed, much like Kanagi Izumi (Vampire ver.) and Shinobu Oshino.
  • Because of her wish, when she sees the sunrise she will sleep and won't wake up until nighttime, much like how a vampire is only active at that hour.
  • Ironically, both her summary and her design implies that she is like a vampire hunter, who hunts vampires.
  • Both she and Hotaru Yura's wishes involved sleep and gave them both unusual sleep schedules.
  • Her Doppel is named after a family of moths, also referred to as "ghost moths", that are crepuscular (active during twilight). The common name of the family in Japanese is "コウモリガ", literally means "bat moth". Ironically, moths are sometimes attracted towards artificial light.
    • It also shares the moth design with Ui Tamaki and Umika Misaki's Doppels (which are based on a silk moth and resemble a lepidopteran respectively.)
      • Her doppel may have been inspired by a famous cryptid, the Mothman from Point Pleasant, West Virginia in the United States, described as a large winged, bipedal creature with glowing red eyes in most accounts. Considering Kushu has red eyes and her doppel gives her an image similar to the cryptid, it could be possible.
        • Noticeably is how two of the wings seem to look similar to a birds wing, the Mothman was also described as looking bird like in several accounts.
  • It's noted in one event that her name doesn't sound Japanese. Indeed, the name "Irina" is a variant of "Irene" used in several languages, and there is a German surname "Kusch" which would be rendered with the same kana as "Kushu". However, it is "Irina" and not "Kushu" that is rendered in kanji, so it is unclear whether these associations were intended.
