"Hey, turn off the lights! And stop honking!(ちょっとライト消しなさい!クラクションもやめて!)"
―Kanami to Tatsumi[src]


Kanami is the owner of a roadside restaurant, Chigusa.


Her father died while she was in high school. After that, her mother worked hard in the fields to save for Kanami to go to college. Later on, she moved to the city and got married. When her marriage failed, she went back home and her mother supported her.

On August 8th, Tatsumi comes to her house late at night and wakes her up looking for Sotoba. After telling him that he is already there, he apologizes for waking her and her mother and says that he's moving to the mansion. After he leaves she remarks to her mother what strange people are moving in. Kanami's mother dies due to anemia and becomes a Shiki.

After finding her way back to Kanami's house, the mother is too helpless to kill and survive on her own, so Kanami keeps her alive by feeding her glasses of her own blood, not wanting her mother to kill innocent people. Kanami's friend and co-worker Maeda Motoko finds out about Kanami's secret and promises not to tell anyone. However, Motoko becomes jealous of Kanami getting her mother back (while Motoko's entire family died at the hands of her father-in-law, who became a shiki) and reveals this to the villagers, who broke into Kanami's house and killed her mother.

November 3rdEdit

Tae Yano rises and finds her way back home.

The EndEdit

After this incident, Kanami is seen leaving the village when the Shiki extermination continues.
