Kanna Kirishima (桐島 カンナ, Kirishima Kanna) is a member of the Teikoku Kagekidan's Hanagumi.


Kanna is a fit young woman with visible biceps and tanned skin. She usually wears a red, sleeveless shirt, slacks, and a tan jacket. Her hair is born and reaches her chin, and is usually held in place with a white headband.


Always hungry and tomboyish, the fairly easygoing Kanna serves as the group's raw muscle. Kanna is the master of a Martial Arts style that allows her to easily kill a bull with her bare hands. She sometimes gets into an argument with Sumire over their differences in attitude.

In The Games

Sakura Taisen

In episode 5, Kanna reveals her fear of snakes after being bitten by one inside the mansion. She gained her fear after getting bit by one as a child while training in Okinawa with her father.

In her ending, she and Ichiro take a trip down to Okinawa for a training session. After seeing a snake, she leaps into Ichiro's arms...and falls into the water. Thankfully they just laugh it off.
