Ai Shindou (新堂 愛 Shindō Ai) is one of the secondary characters of the Beyond the Boundary (series). She is a cat Youmu who lives with Ayaka at her photo studio. She helps Ayaka with housework and models for photos, among other things.[1]

AppearanceEdit

Ai takes the appearance of a petite, young girl with big, blue eyes, long wavy brown hair with short fringes. While in her Youmu form, she becomes a Scottish Fold with white tips at the end of her tail.

As a human, she has a round, innocent face accompanied by a soft, melodious voice. As described by Hiroomi, her gestures are of a typical cute, little sister. Her hair is generally loose. She is often seen wearing only a dark blue sailor uniform but occasionally changes her attire. Upon seeing Ai's nude picture, Mirai commented that the former has surprisingly large breasts, comparing them to watermelons.

Visiting the festival of lanterns, she wore a yellow kimono with a cream obi tied around by red thread and a high ponytail with a large, flowery yellow hairband.

PersonalityEdit

Ai has a bubbly and cheerful personality, and seems to be a person who would be excited by little things. Sometimes, she becomes so overwhelmed by emotion that she turns back into her Youmu form.

As seen in the plot, she often poses a warm and gentle personality with kind intentions and innocent features. She is always supportive of people around her and is trying to go as far as possible for the sake of keeping the environment platonic and calm.

Story (Anime)Edit

In spite of her youmu lineage, Ai lives alongside human society as a student of Nagatsuki City High School and assistant to Ayaka Shindou, also a youmu. She is also familiar with the half-youmu Akihito Kanbara and the Spirit World Warriors in the area because of Ayaka's occupation as a youmu appraiser.

She has helped Mirai, Akihito and the Nase siblings in catching youmu like the Fruit Type youmu on top of the school building by assiting in forming a idol band group (she was the star) in order to distract the youmu. However since no one planned on who will finish off the youmu they were sprayed with the youmu's defensive scent before they can attack, leading them to stink and need for constant showering.

During the Calm, Ai like most youmu, went into a lethargic state. She was almost attacked by Akihito, whose hostile youmu side manifested after Izumi Nase suppressed his human side. Ai was rescued by Ayaka in time. They were later absorbed by the massive youmu called Beyond the Boundary and fought against the hostile youmu inside with Akihito and Mirai Kuriyama.

In the Anime end credits - it is show that she is friends with Sakura Inami and they go to school together.

Kyoukai no Kanata Movie: I'll Be Here - Mirai-hen Edit

In the film Kyoukai no Kanata Movie: I'll Be Here - Mirai-hen after a stern conversation between Hiroomi Nase and her sister Ayaka about how Hiroomi is acting now being the head of the Nase household, Ai chases after Hiroomi and explains that her sister is critical of him because Ayaka and her are happy being able to live with humans and living the way they do and wants Hiroomi to protect their happiness.

In the movie end credits- she is show to be part of the Tennis Club along with Mirai and Sakura and often hanging out as a group with the Nase siblings.

AbilitiesEdit

She usually takes the form of human, but when she grows too excited, she reverts to the form of a Scottish Fold.

She seems to be fairly athletic especially in tennis when she tried out for the tennis club. Ai also is a good singer as seen duirng the Fruit Youmu incident when she sang for their pop group and often cosplays/models for her sisters photography work.

Appearances in other mediaEdit

Aside from having a role as a secondary character in the anime series, Ai stars a lead role in the Kyoukai no Kanata: Idol Trial ONA as the presiding "idol judge" who convicts key characters in the anime series for noteworthy behavior. Here, Ai has a super-deformed appearance, dressed in frilly clothes reminiscent of idol attire under the judge's black robes.

In Idol Trial, Ai was chosen to become the presiding judge by idol election, and uses her cutesy behavior to mask her rather sharp-tongued personality.

In the Mini Theater ONA - Ai stated that she is interested in doing an idol debut.
