神楽, Gura, China Girl, Leader, Gurako
Height: 155 cm Although she appears to be a normal cute human girl in Chinesestyle clothing she actually belongs to the Yato Clan one of the strongest and most bloodthirsty of the Amanto races. The Yato is said to have transparent skin that is highly sensitive to sunlight so Kagura carries a purple parasol at all times. The parasol is also the Yato clans weapon of choice Kaguras is bulletproof and fires bullets from its tip. Because of her Yato blood she is superstrong and can stop a speeding motorscooter with one hand. Although stronger than most humans she cannot control her strength perfectly. Her superhuman strength makes her extremely bad with pets. Most of her pets with the exception of Sadaharu have met with an untimely demise by her hands. She is also extremely flexible and fast capable of catching multiple speeding bullets between her teeth and fingers. During a battle shes often seen flipping through the air and performing various acrobatic feats. Due to her Yato blood she is capable of rapid regeneration. During the Benizakura arc she is seen healing from a gunshot wound almost overnight. Kagura also has an unusually strong appetite. She is able to consume large quantity of food within a matter of seconds. Nevertheless her tastes are endearingly plain. Sukonbu rice and eggs are among her favorite foods. Her immediate family consists of her father Umibouzu a widely recognized alien hunter her mother who is deceased and her older brother Kamui once presumed missing who is now involved with the space pirates Harusame. She came to Earth to earn money for her family. She found work fighting for a gang but when they ordered her to kill her target she ran away. Not long afterward she met Gintoki and Shinpachi when Gintoki accidentally ran her down with his scooter. After they helped her to make a clean break from the gang she intimidated Gintoki into hiring her. She now lives at the Yorozuya and sleeps in Gintokis closet like Doraemon. Kagura and Gintoki share an odd fatherdaughterlike relationship. Together with Shinpachi the three of them makes for a strange dysfunctional yet tightly knit family. Kagura is very protective of Gintoki. Although she herself has gotten into many fights with him rarely does she let anyone else pick on him. She seems to trust wholeheartedly in Gintokis ability and strength. Even in sticky situations she has no doubt that Ginchan would come to save her. She has a tendency to imitate Gintokis bad habits and would often quote the bad advice he gives her. Some of her lines start with Ginchan says... or Ginchan told me... Kagura is also somewhat of a tomboy. She is often seen partaking in games with various neighborhood boys. Although her candid manner of speech often causes them to shun her she doesnt seem to mind. In fact she has no problem at all with forcing her way into their game. In battle she has proven to be bullheaded and a sore loser. Like Gintoki and probably because of his influence she is not above resorting to petty tricks and manipulation to get the better of her adversary. Unlike much conventional manga heroines she doesnt display the same consciousness toward decorum table manners and physical appearance. Puking cussing picking her nose spitting fighting and scratching herself is common behavior for Kagura. She regards Okita captain of the Shinsengumi as a rival. She detests him and appeared to be disgusted when she previously mentioned about Okita that he definitely likes me but as that hasnt been brought up since it is uncertain on if it should be considered canon that he apparently likes her. According to the OVA Kagura is the first and only Weekly Shonen Jump girl to vomit onscreen. To date she has induced herself to vomit on several occasions. She also has an uncanny knack for seeming calm or detached during hightension situations in episode 5 she slept through a carchase. Her appetite knows no bounds and she is especially fond of sukonbu. In Japanese Kagura speaks in a stereotypical dialect that is associated with Chinese immigrants. In the Englishtranslated manga she punctuates her sentences with yup uhhuh nope and the like. In the last Gintama character popularity poll she came in 6th place.
