Ashikaga Kazuha Yoshiteru  (足利 (あしかが) 一葉 (かずは) 義輝 (よしてる)?), or simply known as Kazuha  (一葉 (かずは)?), is the head of the Ashikaga Clan, the shogun of Ashikaga Shogunate in Japan, and one of the main female protagonists and main heroines in the Sengoku†Koihime series.



Kazuha is the head of the Ashikaga Clan. She is whimsical, impulsive, and fundamentally a person that needs looking after. That job generally goes to her attendant, Yuu, who takes care of most of the details. Initially, Kazuha didn't care much about her role among the Ashikaga Clan. But after meeting Kensuke and Kuon, she takes up more responsibilities around the village. Her role in the Ashikaga Clan is usually taken care of by her sister, Futaba. Kazuha likes her freedom. Because of that, she follows the Kensuke Squad around and helps Kensuke in his battle against the Oni.


Nitta Kensuke[]

When first meeting with Kensuke, Kazuha feels the fighting spirit in Kensuke's eyes looks like that of a fierce dragon and noble person, who can't be underestimated by anyone. After her second meeting with Kensuke, Kazuha seems to become infatuated with him, asking Kensuke to be her husband. She calls Kensuke "nuu-sama" as a romantic nickname. She then becomes one of his many wives.


Skills and Abilities[]


Sword Mastery: She is a master of the blade and a student of Tsukahara Bokuden. She is far more at ease giving a beat-down to thugs in the streets than sitting behind a curtain in the palace.


Weapon Summoning: She can summon weapons using her technique. She is generally depicted summoning weapons from the Koihime†Musou Series like Kan'u Unchou's weapon, the Green Dragon Crescent Blade.
