Kakouen Myousai  (夏侯 (かこう) (えん) 妙才 (みょうさい)? Xiahou Yuan - Miaocai), also known as Shuuran  (秋蘭 (しゅうらん)?), is a general of Gi and Kakouton's younger twin sister. She is one of the many heroines in the Koihime†Musou series.



The younger sister of the Kakouton and also Sousou's cousin and a general of Gi. She is first introduced taking part in the anti-Toutaku campaign. During the war against Hongou faction she and her sister surrender and plead to Kazuto for aid after realizing Sousou is being controlled. After Sousou's rescue she becomes a captive of Hongou faction. She shows no signs of resentment towards Kazuto after being captured and even go as far as placing him as her 5th favorite later on (first three are Sousou, her sister, and Kyocho. It's hinted that the fourth is Ganryou, which she neither confirms nor denies). Other than Sousou, she's the only one capable of calming her sister.

She accepts Kazuto fairly early on in the story, and quickly becomes friends with him. She often gives him advice to help him adjust to his new life and even helps him out when he's caught in a difficult situation.

Shin Koihime † Eiyuutan []

Kakouen wants to continue to aid her sister and Kazuto in training and fighting with Sousou's armies. It is noted by many, including Kazuto, that something about her is different, yet she continues to claim that she is alright, despite secretly being revealed to having morning sickness at times.

Kakouen then starts to show an interest in children and becomes concerned at her sisters inability to deal with them, while also showing interest in Kazuto's opinion in having children. Kakouen then strengthens her relationship with Kazuto, which eventually is noticed by Kakouton, causing her to frequently ponders over it.

During an ambush in a training exercise, Kakouen is hit by a poisoned arrow. In her sisters arms, she then tells Kakouton the truth; that she is pregnant with Kazuto's child, causing Kakouen to go on a silent rampage against the enemy forces. As she gets weaker in Kazuto's arms, she attempts to tell him about her pregnancy but falls unconsciousness.

Kakouen survives the poison, with her pregnancy then being revealed to everyone, and is then constantly told by everyone, especially Kazuto, to take better care of her self and her child. Kakouen is then happy that she and Kazuto are having a child and that Kakouton is also happy about it.

Kakouen is removed from her original military position by Sousou, who already knew about her pregnancy yet previously allowed her to remain out of Kakouen's own wishes, leaving Kazuto and a more energetic Kakouton to do her part in the army.

Anime version[]

The younger twin sister of Kakouton. Just like her sister, she is extremely loyal to her cousin Sousou and is one of the generals. But in contrast, she is much calmer and is quicker in thinking. 



Despite being the younger one, she serves as a foil to her hot-headed sister. Always calm and collected, Kakouen rarely loses her cool, which plays a big part when keeping Kakouton in check. On the battlefield her sound judgement is often the only thing that prevents Kakouton from charging the enemy at first sight. Although she is no match for an actual strategist, she is still very intelligent and could fill in as a strategist in a pinch. Like Sousou, she was also able to (partially) understand Kazuto's situation. In everyday life she is very nice and easy to get along with, but occasionally she likes to tease Kakouton and Kazuto in her own subtle way (or teaming up with Kazuto to tease her sister). Furthermore, she does enjoy being pampered, and should the opportunity arise, will act accordingly to get the attention she wants. Due to her levelheaded nature, she does not stand out much compared to many of the other girls.

In the anime her personality is greatly reduced (largely due to the improvement of Kakouton as a character), making her a lackluster minor character. Her calmness remains, but her intelligence and the rest of her charm are largely shadowed.


Like her sister, Kakouen is in a lesbian relationship with Sousou. However, she doesn't share the same extreme devotion and does not harbor any negative feelings towards men. As a result, she easily develops a normal romantic relationship with Kazuto. She also doesn't mind sharing him with her sister and Sousou. In the first VN it is implied that she has some form of an incestuous relation with Kakouton, although to what extent is unknown. In the second VN, she is blatantly a siscon, she finds Kakouton's slow-wittedness cute and will even resort to stalking just to observe the latter's "cute" behavior.


  • Of the three factions, she is the only (by comparison) non-busty archer.
  • Interestingly, her counterpart in Ikkitousen bears a strong resemblance to her sister.
  • Similar to Chou'un's obsession with menma, Kakouen loves cherries.
    • She's so obsessed with them that she even refuses to recognize Kakouton as her sister when the later ate her cherries without permission.  
  • In the animated opening of Sengoku†Koihime: ~Otome Kenran ☆ Sengoku Emaki~Ashikaga Kazuha Yoshiteru summon the weapons of various Koihime†Musou heroines as projectiles for her attack; among those is Kakouen's bow.
