Kayura Tsurugino manga

Kayura's first appearance in the manga

Kayura first appears at the end of Chapter 336, after Kirika Kuzuha had summoned her to her office, introducing her as a replacement student for Wataru who had dropped out of Hakuo Academy.

Becoming a tenant at the Violet Mansion

Days later, in a park near Akihabara, Kayura overhears Nagi's complainants about how she is supposed to create a manga that will sell a trillion copies. Sparking her curiosity, Kayura approaches Nagi, surprising her in the process (due to her alien costume), and asks her about the manga that could sell a trillion copies. After having read through Nagi's unfinished manga, Nagi offers to tell Kayura the rest of the story. Kayura then offers to take her back to her place, where it is then revealed that she had been living inside a tent set up in the park. After having taken off her alien costume, Kayura's conversation with Nagi is interrupted by a police officer who tears down her tent and arrests Kayura for causing trouble in the park. Having seen Kayura get arrested, Nagi attempts to intervene, but is nearly arrested herself before Hayate steps in and passes the whole incident off as a misunderstanding.

After having been freed, Kayura thanks Nagi for saving her and is taken back to the Violet Mansion and introduced to Maria as the new tenant. After having been asked about her parents, Kayura tells Nagi and Maria that she could live anywhere and begins to set up her tent in the backyard. After having finished setting up her tent, Nagi praises Kayura for choosing to live outside despite how hot it got during the summer, which prompts Kayura to relocate indoors. As Kayura was unpacking her belongings, Hayate and Nagi learn that she had read over a hundred thousand manga titles. Hayate asks Kayura to become an adviser for Nagi's manga, but she refuses, her reason being 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 is right, no matter what others think. Afterwards, she and Nagi become very good friends.

First Day at Hakuo Academy

On her first day at Hakuo Academy, Kayura is given a tour of the campus by Hayate and Nagi. After having shown her one of the school specialties: "the drunk teacher", Kayura interrupts Hayate's tour and asks for him to take her to the clock tower. After having seen the view from the terrace of the clock tower, Kayura tells them that she was glad to have come to the school and tells Nagi that she was glad to have met her. Before heading to her class to introduce herself, Kayura asks Hayate what was beyond the closed door in the student council room. He tells her that it was another one of the school specialties and casually opens the door as he told her that if the door was suddenly opened then there was an extremely high chance that they would find Hinagiku changing. As he said that, Kayura sees an embarrassed Hinagiku on the other side of the door who then hits Hayate, while reminding him that he should knock first before opening a door.

Kyoto and Ise Arc

While on summer break from Hakuo Academy, Kayura returns to her home in Hokkaido. Later, she finds Nagi and Isumi in Hokkaido and learns that Nagi was on her way to Kyoto to improve her manga but was accidently lead to Hokkaido by Isumi. Seeing that Nagi didn't have her phone or any credit cards and only had 23,000 yen in her pocket, Kayura contacts Maria at the Violet Mansion and informs her of Nagi's whereabouts and then brings Nagi and Isumi back to her home. After having entered, Kayura overhears her father on the phone. Curious, Kayura asks her father about the situation and he tells her that a client from overseas had arrived, but the translator had collapsed. Remembering that she can speak English, Kayura's father asks her if she could translate for them and reminds her that their company's fate was riding on the game they where developing. Kayura then reveals to Nagi that her family runs a small video game company and then tries to listen to the client, but is unable to understand him. Her father attempts to encourage her to try harder before Nagi talks to the client, asking him if he's from Australia, which he confirms. Impressed, Kayura praises Nagi by saying that she isn't as entirely stupid as she seems.

Later, after her father had given them bus fare, Kayura accompanies Nagi to Kyoto. During the trip Nagi asks if it was okay for her father to be paying for their fare before reminding Kayura that her father had became pale after having learned that the artificial intelligence for the game was incomplete. Kayura tells her that her family will probably fall into debt because of it and would probably affect her life, but shrugs it off.

After having arrived at a bus stop, Kayura reminds Nagi that going on a trip wouldn't be an interesting basis for any manga and that she would have to do something in the trip to make it happen. Afterwards, as the bus had left the stop. Kayura tells Nagi that the trip had only begun and that she didn't need to rush things before realizing that Isumi had taken Nagi's place on the bus. At another bus stop, Kayura disembarks from the bus and contacts Hayate and informs him of the situation and then realizes that Isumi had become missing as well. Afterwards, Kayura spends the remainder of the day searching for the both of them, until she eventually finds Isumi who gives her a lift to Kyoto via helicopter.

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.
