Akari Yukimura, more commonly known as Kaede Kayano (Japanese: 茅野 カエデ Kayano Kaede) is a student of Kunugigaoka Junior High School and a main protagonist of the anime and manga series Assassination Classroom. She is primarily voiced by Aya Suzaki and Monica Rial in the Japanese and English dubs, respectively.
Kaede Kayano is a thin-framed girl of short stature. She has hazel eyes with green hair fashioned in cat ear-styled pigtails. However, her hair is naturally black, and until joining Class 3-E, she kept it long and wavy. Under blood lust, her eyes turn blood red.
Of all the members of Kunugigaoka Junior High School's Class 3-E, Kayano is one of the most passive members of the class. She prefers to play a support role in the class' plans. She has a complex when it comes to sex appeal of women, being disgusted of large-breasted women. She is often shown to be optimistic and cheerful around her friends.
However, as Akari Yukimura, she acts almost completely different, with her cheerful personality being a façade.
- Before going by the name primarily, 'Kaede Kayano' was the name of a one-off character played by Akari Yukimura.
