Tsubasa Shibahime

At first glance Tsubasa seems like a little girl because of her looks and height. Shes cute she whines she pouts : shes your average fifteenyear old girl adored by all. Tsubasa like every other person has her likes and dislikes and her big dislike are men. Time and time again Tsubasa is hurt by the men in her life. Take for example her longtime friend Soichirou was her crush and she had planned on confessing to him once they entered highschool. However she does attend Hokuei High School until later on in the manga/anime because of a skateboard accident and when she returns Soichirou is already claimed by Yukino. Tsubasa then finds out later that her father who has taken care of her ever since her mother passed away is planning on getting remaried. For our little princess Tsubasa had hoped that shed be the only girl in both Soichirou and her fathers life and that with her by their side they would all be content. When she finds out that they are allowing other women into their lives Tsubasa is devastated and feels even more lonely. When she finally meets her stepbrother Kazuma she soon finds herself falling for him even though she was against her fathers remarriage in the first place. Tsubasa is definately one of the most dynamic characters of Kare Kano for she learns to open up again to the world. She matures and learns to grow up and to accept many things that may hurt her. Even though she doesnt get along with some people such as Yukino she learns to like her and eventually is attached to her. Tsubasa may be overlooked as a character whos just simply quottherequot but she is definately more than that. Despite her cute childish behavior which includes overdose of sweets Tsubasa is a girl full of many mixed emotions and her way of thinking is very complexed. In a way she learns to become independent and knows that the only way to find happiness is to get up and go for it rather than sit at home and sulk about it. Tsubasa is more than just a pretty face and defines a lot of what quotgirl powerquot is. There is definately something amazing about this princess of ours. Tsubasa is known commonly as the baby of the group in Kare Kano. Most of the time youll see her eating candy whenever the group is eating lunch. In the anime you can see that she loves Totoro and in the manga you will see that she loves big cats. When Tsubasas in a bad mood shell become violent and scratch people. Despite her violent nature at times Tsubasa is like a real princess deep down. It also makes sense since the quothimequot in her name means quotprincessquot in japanese. Shes a good homemaker and takes good care of her father and the house they live in.
