Ayano Kannagi is the current heir of the Kannagi family and the holder of Enraiha.


Though she acts rude and undisciplined, she is very proud of her heritage. Despite claiming to hate Kazuma, Ayano has a crush on him, but gets angry when he flirts and makes a move on her and is prone to throwing fits of rage when he gets close to another woman. She later comes to realize that she is actually in love with him. Kazuma is also the only person she sees as stronger in power and presence than even her own father. She's very prideful and reckless and tends to solve everything by brute force.


She is a skilled Enjutsushi or, a skilled fire user as the successor to the Kannagi family's head. Ayano's power is the Crimson Flame, although she is not yet able to consciously control it.

She also holds Enraiha, the Kannagi's sacred sword, which she won by defeating Kazuma at the successor ceremony four years before Kazuma became a contractor in the story. The sword has fire properties and can be summoned by Ayano at any time. At one point she was able to use the god's fire with the help of Kazuma.

Relationships: Edit

She hates him in the beginning. When Ayano's father finds Kazuma, he starts sending Ayano on quests to kill youma or other threats with Kazuma there to protect her. This usually makes Ayano mad. But later, she realizes she has fallen in love with him. Ayano doesn't trust him at first and sees him as a pervert with no intentions to help her family, but after some time she softens and starts developing feelings towards him.
Her cousin and Kazuma's little brother. She adores him very much, and usually teases him, much to his dismay. However, sometimes Ayano feels jealous of him when Ren demonstrates techniques that she can't use or had no prior knowledge of.
