Ayaka Shindou (新堂 彩華 Shindō Ayaka) is one of the secondary characters of the Kyoukai no Kanata series, a Spirit World Warrior introduced as a human in the original light novels and a youmu with a nine-tailed fox form in the anime series.[1] Ayaka is the link that connects Akihito Kanbara to the world of youmu and Spirit World Warriors, and is also the one who reads the postcards his mother send to him.

AppearanceEdit

Ayaka has long, straight hair and green eyes. She always wears a black kimono with a fitting obi and imprints of red flowers at the bottom. Over her kimono, she wears a yellow haori with beige dots on it. Along with this she wears white socks and zōri with a red hanao.

PersonalityEdit

Ayaka is a knowledgeable and mysterious woman who always appears calm and level-headed. She has a sense of humor that could almost be called cruel as she did not spare Akihito Kanbara from showing his mother's embarrassing message to outsiders while casually calling her "big-busted" and "kind of crazy" in one sentence.

Towards her sister Ai Shindou, she shows a kind side, calmly allaying her to have no fear when their house is surrounded by countless Youmu.

HistoryEdit

Despite being a youmu herself, Ayaka has been working with the Spirit World Warriors of Nagatsuki City for at least three years. She lives with Ai in a detached home that acts as an appraising office for youmu slain in battle or a photo studio with a cafe for the uninitiated.

StoryEdit

At the present time, Ayaka is an acquaintance of Akihito's, serving as an activator of sorts for the specially made postcards Akihito receives from his mother Yayoi. She meets Mirai after slaying a youmu for the first time and she warmly accepts her as Akihito's friend, although she remains fair in assessing the youmu stones Mirai hands out to her.

During the Calm, she was gravely affected like Akihito and Ai, but she was able to fend off the attacks of Miroku Fujima while defending the weakened youmu. Ayaka was later absorbed into the youmu Beyond the Boundary but managed to survive after helping Akihito and Mirai in defeating the hostiles absorbed by the gigantic youmu.

AbilitiesEdit

Ayaka's Youmu form

Ayaka's Youmu form

Ayaka has shown to be very knowledgeable about Youmu and their worth, which is why the local Spirit World Warriors hold her in high esteem. She could also build up effective barriers. One was used to ward off normal people so only Spirit World Warriors could meet her. However, the barrier was actually too strong for Mirai Kuriyama to see through it. The second barrier was shaped like a giant dome and could annihilate several Youmu at once while expanding. Its intention was to hold off the mighty "Hollow Shadow".

In her youmu form she is a big, white and surprisingly powerful (even during The Calm) nine tailed fox (kitsune). Also in this form she can project a powerful energy blast from the mouth and erect protective shields.
