Kayura Tsurugino (剣野 カユラ Tsurugino Kayura?) is a new transfer student to Hakuo Academy, and a new tenant to the Violet Mansion. She first appears as the replacement for Wataru Tachibana at Hakuo. She soon becomes good friends with Nagi. She is very into games, anime and manga, due to her early childhood.

Her name is derived from Lady Kayura, the heroine of Ronin Warriors (See Trivia below).


Kayura has short light green hair and red eyes. She also has two even bangs on both sides of her face and a longer bang in the middle of her face. She is often seen cosplaying as characters from well known anime, while at school she wears a Hakuo Academy uniform, when not at school or cosplaying, she is usually seen wearing a blue tank top and a short denim skirt with red converse style sneakers.

In Hayate no Gotoku! CAN'T TAKE MY EYES OFF YOU and in Hayate no Gotoku! Cuties she is usually seen wearing various long sleeved t-shirts and capri style pants.

Characteristics and personality

It is revealed that due to her parents she has always been around anime, manga and games since she was born, and has read over 100,000 manga. She is also very supportive of cosplay, and often is seen wearing a costume of some anime. As with most other characters that go to Hakuo Academy, she is also a grade-skipper. Due to her manga experience, she is also able to understand Nagi's doujinshi manga, along with Isumi. According to Hayate, she is an elite Otaku .


Comisun Arc

Kayura first appears at the end of Chapter 336 of the manga, introduced as a replacement for Wataru at Hakuo Academy.

Introduction to Nagi

She first meet Nagi in a park (Chapter 342) and they end up talking about Nagi's doujinshi manga. It is shortly revealed that she has been living inside a tent set up in the park and was almost arrested by a police officer until Hayate stepped in and managed to pass it off as a misunderstanding.

Becoming a tenant at the Violet Mansion and an adviser to Nagi

Afterwards she becomes a new tenant in the Violet mansion. Hayate asked her to become an adviser for Nagi's manga, but she refused (her reason was that they had just met, and she was busy with reading manga). However, she then later gave advice to Nagi, to not make a simple to understand manga like how Ruka and Hinagiku are doing, but to do the opposite, and make the manga the way she thinks its right, no matter of others' opinions. She and Nagi become very good friends.

Summer Break

Later on she joins Nagi and friends at Nishizawa's spring house to enjoy the summer break in Hayate no Gotoku! Heaven is a Place on Earth.


Later, after witnessing Nagi refusing to accept Ruri as her sister, Kayura convinces Nagi to give her a chance to prove herself. Then later she along with Chiharu give their commentary while witnessing Ruri demonstrate her skills in Systema on Hayate.

Cuties (Anime Only)

Kayura is eating the kebabs and making weird remarks. In a flashback, Hayate and Nagi remember when they first met Kayura (and pitching up a tent). After Kayura rented a room at the apartment, she enrolls as a transfer student at Hakuō Academy, so Hayate and Nagi gladly give her a tour around the campus until they reach the clock tower and Hayate casually shows them Hinagiku changing. Back in the present, after the barbecue and the tenants go back to their rooms, Kayura states that you should not take your instant feelings too seriously. Hayate accidentally sees Hinagiku changing again; prompting everybody to say that Hayate is the one who is most unguarded.
