Time for Waifu Wednesday! :D
Kagura is the female protagonist of the series Gintama. She is a young alien girl who belongs to the Yato Clan, one of the strongest and most bloodthirsty of the Amanto races, although Kagura rejects that part of herself. She came to Earth to earn money for her family, and to escape her violent Yato heritage. She found work fighting for a gang of hoodlums, but when they ordered her to kill her target, she ran away.
Not long afterwards, she meets Gintoki and Shinpachi, when they accidentally run over her with Gintoki's scooter.
Yeah, literally run her tiny butt over.... O__O
She's of course okay after that, no worries! LOL
After they help her to make a clean break from the gang, she intimidates Gintoki into hiring her. Kagura and Gintoki have an odd brother-sister-like relationship and she commonly imitates his bad habits.
Her speech often ends in -aru, characteristic of the Japanese's impression of a Chinese accent. In Japanese, Kagura speaks in a stereotypical dialect that is associated with Chinese immigrants. In the English-translated manga, she punctuates her sentences with "yup", "uh-huh", "nope", and the like. Her character is based on Princess Kaguya from the story The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter while her name comes from a place the island of Hokkaido.
The Yato have "translucent" skin that is highly sensitive to sunlight, so Kagura carries an umbrella at all times. The parasol is also the Yato clan's weapon of choice; Kagura's umbrella is bulletproof and fires bullets from its tip. Because of her Yato blood, she is extremely strong and can stop a speeding motorscooter with one hand.
However, she cannot control her strength perfectly; most of her pets, with the exception of Sadaharu, have all met an untimely demise at her hands.
Kagura also has an unusually strong appetite, making her capable of consuming large quantity of food within a matter of seconds. Nevertheless, her tastes are endearingly plain.
Kagura is also somewhat of a tomboy, as she speaks in a blunt or perverted way. This is due to Sorachi not finding the too feminine characters believable and instead made Kagura from an anti-female lead perspective resulting in Kagura being the first female lead in manga to throw up.
Though she's off the wall and a bit nuts, Kagura is honestly an adorable being. She's got a pretty impressionable heart, and the capacity for her love is boundless when it comes to people close to her. She's loyal and extremely brave. Did I mention Cute? I mean look at her! That smile though! <3
There is so much to this girl it's hard to comprehend. It's complex and yet so fragile.
If I could choose to be part of that story, I would. It would be worth every bruise and bump they so often get being part of the famous Yorozuya.
