Chizuru Minamoto (源 千鶴 Minamoto Chizuru) is a main character of the Kanokon series. She is a female kitsune and love interest of Kouta
Chizuru is a carefree second-year female student at Kouta's school. She appears to be a normal, albeit big-breasted, teenage girl, but she is in fact a 400-year-old powerful kitsune. When she changes form, her hair goes from black to blond and she gains fox ears and a tail. She is constantly hanging around and on Kouta, as he is the only male she acts genuinely towards. She loves Kouta very much and wants to enter a "relationship of sin" with him. She is a very straightforward person and makes almost constant sexual suggestions and actions toward Kouta. She is also a terrible cook, though she improves later on, and shows some interest in masochism.
In the manga, her love for Kouta is undeniable and always considers ways of getting intimate with him. Recently, Chizuru has realized that Kouta is turning into a yōkai like herself, and that he has gained a portion of the Eight Dragons power which resides in her. She has no recollection of her past until she met her foster mother Tamamo, the nine-tailed fox. All that is certain is she can hone her powers as long as she is beside Kouta.
She usually wears the school uniform but dresses more erotically in front of Kouta when they're alone. While in her kitsune form she grows fox ears, a tail, and her hair changes from black to blonde.
So selfish and doesn't learn from any mistake she makes, even if it puts her life in danger. Chizuru doesn't even care about her brother, after all the trouble he has gone through.
