Kaede Fuyou is Rin Tsuchimi's childhood best friend. Her mother passed away in the same accident that claimed Rin's parents and they've been living under the same roof ever since. She attends Verbena Academy with Rin and they are classmates. She is clear-headed, has great looks, and is excellent at housework. However, she frequently prioritizes Rin to the point that she neglects herself.


She is very modest, polite, and a soft-spoken young lady. However, at times she is seen showing serious mental distress and even acts of violence, when a great shock upsets her.


Kaede is a beautiful young woman who embodies the season of Autumn. Her hair is bright orange just like autumn leaves and her eyes are sky blue. She has a slender petite build and gentle facial features giving her a fairy like appearance. Kaede’s most commonly seen attire is her uniform but she changes her wardrobe throughout the series.

When in yandere mode, Kaede’s eyes become soulless and her normally gentle face becomes hostile and menacing.


Kaede Fuyou is Rin's childhood friend who grew up with him in the same house after her mother and Rin's parents died in an accident.

She treated Rin like horribly after their parents' accident. She was very violent and mentally distress to Rin in general because she blamed him for the accident. Kaede has went as far as dropping a sharp object in his eye from a stairwell. She didn't consider for one second that Rin was in pain too, he lost BOTH his parents while she only lost her mother.

While looking through Rin's room one day, Kaede found a postcard from their parents when they were away and realizes that they were coming back earlier because she was sick. Rin knew this but didn't want to tell Kaede because he knew it would hurt her. With this new found knowledge, she understands how bad she was treating Rin and joins the cooking club with Asa in middle school.

In order to atone for her actions in the past, in which she mistreated Rin, Kaede decides to make herself Rin's personal slave by cooking his meals and doing all the work around the house. Rin does not want this, but he is afraid of causing Kaede a relapse by not allowing her to punish herself in this way.

In the anime she also exhibits violent behavior when Rin become close with Asa, and Kaede attacks her when she visits.

Kaede is shown to have romantic feelings for Rin, but considers herself unworthy to be loved by Rin or to stay by Rin's side. However, though it is not romance, Rin cares deeply about her. Although she has come to terms with her own feelings, she continues to love Rin, and declares this in the last episode.
