Shikigami Summoning

Kana Ienaga (家長カナ[2], Ienaga Kana) is the childhood friend and neighbor of Rikuo Nura. Rikuo promised her that he will help her whenever she is in trouble.


Kana has long brown hair and having wide khaki colored eyes. In her past, she had a short ponytail at the right side of her hair.


Kana is an easily frightened girl who doesn't like the idea of yōkai because of the scare factor, yet ironically she often becomes embroiled in yōkai-related incidents. She is hinted to have some affection for Rikuo, as she becomes jealous when she sees him spending time with Tsurara[3], and undeniably falls for his "night" form after he rescues her. She often worries about Rikuo's mental health, and is rather keen at noticing when he is upset over something but trying to keep it hidden.

3 years later, she cheered up Rikuo after he was teased by their classmates for claiming that he lives in a house full of Yōkai's and says that they're nice. She was one of the students that has been riding with the bus that Gagoze attacked and trapped them in a tunnel. Later they where been rescued by Rikuo in his Night Form and his Hyakki Yakō.
