- —Kanako Urashima
Kanako Urashima (浦島 可奈子, Urashima Kanako) is Keitaro Urashima’s younger sister and is a character from the series Love Hina by Ken Akamatsu and antagonist and primary protagonist in Kuro Arashi: The Black Storm.
Adopted into the Urashima family when she was a child, Kanako never came to see Keitaro as a brother, growing to love him due to his understanding nature. When they promised to run an inn together when they grew up, she had assumed it would be as husband and wife, but Keitaro only considered her as his sister and he never meant to be husband and wife.
Very little of Kanako's early life is elaborated upon other than she was adopted into the Urashima family when she was young and grew up very attatched to her adoptive brother, Keitaro. It is implied she knew Seno Nakakami during their youth.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
- Animal Companion, Kuro: Capable of flying, Kuro possesses uniquely large ears and is able to talk. She often offers Kanako conversation and advice when she frets over her longing to be with Keitaro. Kuro's arrival is usually announced by the sound of the bell tied to her tail.
- Magical Prowess: Kanako is an impiled mage, though it is not known if she ever studied anywhere or if all her magic was learned abroad whilst traveling with Hina Urashima.
- Long debated in Love Hina canon as to whether or not Kuro is magical, Kuro Arashi canon puts it to rest and makes Kuro Kanako's magical familiar.
- None as of yet.
