Introduction

Kano-efz.png

Kirishima Kano (霧島 佳乃) is a slow but well-ranged fighter, and can use elemental magic to keep the opponent at bay. Her magical rod gives her incredible range even without her magic, and she is also able to gain SP naturally without having to attack the opponent. Because of her range and magic, Kano is well-suited for a keep-away play style.

Kano is actually one of the heroines of AIR, a visual novel produced by Key in 2000. Kano is a school girl in the town where the story takes place. Both of her parents passed away long ago, and she now lives with her older sister who runs the town's clinic. Kano loves animals, and takes care of the animals at school. She is always with her pet dog, Potato, also known as the "alien fur ball" to Yukito. Kano believes that the ribbon tied to her right wrist will enable her to use magic if she keeps it on until adulthood. During AIR, Yukito learns the reason Kano wants magic, and the purpose of the ribbon...

Stage: Shinto Shrine near the Sky (Day) (空に近い神社(昼))

BGM: Puddle (水たまり)

Character-Specific Notes

  • Kano is able to air jump once, and air dash/backstep once.
  • Kano has one of the most floaty jumps in the game.
  • Kano usually has a "Magic" gauge underneath her life gauge. Kano will not be able to cast any magic until her magic gauge is full. If she does not have a full magic gauge and she tries to cast magic, she will charge uninterrupted until her magic gauge is full, and then cast her magic. In the case that there is no magic gauge, it simply means that the gauge is empty.
  • Kano is able to automatically generate SP on her own. Her recovery rate is fastest when she has less than SP level 1, and becomes slower with each level she reaches. However, if Kano stays in the same horizontal position (jumping straight up or attacking is okay) and is not attacked by the opponent for 4 seconds, a blue "30" will appear over her, and she will gain 1/3 of a level of SP.

  • Kano makes a charging pose as a sphere of light briefly surrounds her entire body.
  • After this move is performed, Kano will have a full magic gauge. However, she cannot use this move if her magic gauge is already full.
  • Fast Aria can actually be used to move cancel-out of Lightning Bolt, Fire Bolt, and Cold Bolt, making it an excellent escape option if the opponent gets too close while you are still casting a spell.

Final Memory

Memory of Shiraho (白帆の記憶)

  • Kano reaches out with her hands. If it hits, she grabs the opponent by the neck and lifts them completely off the ground. After saying the lines "If it must be done, I would rather kill you with my own hands...", she crushes their neck and drops them.
