"I... I've been saved by Ataru... Playing hero...? You're wrong. He's already a real hero to me!"
– Koyori Kanda replies to Marble, Chapter 3

Koyori Kanda (神田 こより, Kanda Koyori) is one of the female protagonists of the first part of the story. She is one of Ataru Kashiwagi's followers.


Koyori looks almost identical to Ataru's sister, Yuri Kashiwagi. She has shoulder length hair. She wears a jumper, shorts, thigh high spotty socks and plain sneakers. She has a backpack and always carries a note pad.


Koyori is a gentle, shy and introverted girl. She always carries around a note pad to take notes on almost everything that happens. Despite Koyori being female, she usually refers to herself as "boku" (僕, Boku, a masculine form for "I"), rather than "watashi" (私, Watashi, a feminine form for "I"). She also likes cats.


Koyori's personality changes

Koyori's personality completely changes sometime during the death game. She becomes somewhat brutal and disrespectful towards people (similar to Yuuma Mukai during the Big Flame Festival). Later when Koyori's "symptom" reaches the third stage, she goes berserk and starts to love killing people. Ataru refers to Koyori as a "cruel person" starting from then.


Chapter 1 - 10 (First Season)Edit

Koyori first appeared at the end of Chapter 2. Ataru Kashiwagi mistakes her for his sister, Yuri Kashiwagi. Koyori tells Ataru that he is mistaking her for someone. Then, Ataru asks Koyori how she came into the Real Account internet world. She replies that, when she was taking a photo of a cat, she was suddenly transferred into the internet world. Ataru notices Koyori is holding a note and she responds that she must write everything that happened into a note or she will start feeling anxious.

When it's about Koyori's turn in the No Answer game, Ataru tells Marble to stop it for a while to discuss with everyone about how to survive in this game. After the discussion is finished, along with almost every other player, including Ataru, she survives the game.

Koyori protects Ataru

When Marble told Ataru that he isn't a hero, Koyori comes to protect Ataru and tells Marble that Ataru is already a hero to her.

During the RT Game, Koyori is thinking about which tweet she should post in public. Soon she sees Nanami Misakura posting a tweet that she will strip, if her RT points reach 1000. Koyori, at first, wants to strip her clothes too, but she is too shy to do so. She remembers how Ataru told her she's cute and posts a tweet saying that, if people find Koyori cute, then they should RT her. Soon, Koyori ends up having 782 RT. She wants to thank Ataru for saying she's cute because of that. After the game finishes, Koyori notices something is wrong with Ataru and asks him how many RT points did he get. Ataru replies he only has 3 RT points and he has no idea what he's doing.

After the RT Gam

Koyori kisses Ataru

e, Ataru calls Yuri to ask if she is alright or not. Soon after, Ataru gives his smartphone to Koyori and lets both her and Yuri talk together. Then, Marble announces that all participants will live in Real Account Resort between the games. Both Koyori and Ataru enjoy their resting time in Real Account Resort. Later, together with Ataru and Ruriri Ichijou, she is assigned a group for the Dark History Trials game. During the game, Koyori receives her first kiss from Aiji Hoshina for his personal amusement. Koyori suddenly faints afterwards. After the game finishes, when Ataru is troubled, Koyori kisses his face to calm him down. Koyori herself has no idea why she kissed him and tells him to forget it.

Chapter 71 - (Third Season)Edit


"Berserker" Koyori in Ataru's flashback

It's mentioned by Ataru in Chapter 149, while telling Yuuma about what happened to Koyori during the second part of the story, that her personality changed due to a "symptom" similar to Yuuma's. It's also revealed that Koyori has been killed by Ataru after she's gone berserk. After Ataru kills Koyori, he makes a promise with her, that he will kill anyone who has suffered the same symptom as her. Ataru said both Yuuma and Koyori have shared a similar "thing" and Yuuma is going to end up like she did.

Koyori was mentioned once again later at Chapter 177 by the news announcer that, they're actually still have no idea what's the similar "thing" that both her and Yuuma shared was about that caused both of them suffered the same "symptom".



  • Koyori and Yuri look almost identical, the reason for it is unknown.
  • Due to Koyori referring to herself as "boku", a lot of people mistaken her as a boy, as the term "boku" is mainly used by males in Japanese language.
  • Since Ataru said both Koyori and Yuuma shared similar "thing", possibly Koyori may be a clone of herself, just like Yuuma is cloned from himself by using CAP Technology.
