Hmm... You must be my prince, right? Just kidding! I'll be counting on you, though!
— Kotono Kashiwaba

Kotono Kashiwaba is a third-year student at Kishimai High School and a member of the Go-Home Club.

Appearance

Kotono has long straight brown hair with a blue flower pinned into the left side of her hair. She also has brown eyes. She wears a slightly modified school outfit; she wears black stockings and the design of her shirt is different. Instead of a normal white dress shirt, her shirt seems to have a different design and a flowery design along the collar.

Her Catharsis Effect weapon is a bow with twisted ends; in the illustration it is blue-tinted, but its model in-game is the same red-tinted as the other Go-Home Club members' Catharsis Effects. Her left arm is blackened up to the forearm, and her outfit is modified to the same area. Her arrows are long white stakes with no tips, and the fletchings are black wedges.

Her Catharsis Effect also modifies her entire lower body. She gains a white wing-like shroud, as well as two looped white belts with metal ends that have special black-colored slots for her arrows. Between the shroud and her skirt, the flowers of her Catharsis Effect also bloom. Her legs, which are entirely black, are marked with a flower sigil on the thigh. Her shoes transform into grey heels.

"Also... the Hidden? Couldn't that be something even you don't want to know?"The following content contains spoilers. Please proceed at your own risk.

In the real world, Kotono is actually a single mother with a son named Takkun. Her ex-boyfriend accidentally impregnated her in high school and left soon after, forcing her to look after Takkun by herself. The event itself made her somewhat misandrist, neglecting and even physically abusing Takkun for being male. She entered Mobius when she heard one of μ's songs while she was working at her mother's bar.

Catharsis Effect

With the ability to lower the enemy's Defense and Accuracy on top of being the traditional healer of the group, being able to grant HP regeneration, and be one of the three units in the game that can revive teammates (other two being Suzuna Kagura and Ayana Amamoto), Kotono fits extremely well in any team and is an actual lifesaver in harder difficulties. Despite having terrible Attack and Defense, having the ability to lower enemy Accuracy while having good Evasion still makes her a solid member to have on the team just as long as the enemy isn't applying any pressure on her. Here are her Catharsis Effect Skills and Support Skills.
