This article is about a character in Higanbana no Saku Yoru ni.

Kyou (キョウ Kyō) is the fifth ranked of the school youkai. Known as Kyou of the Mirror (鏡のキョウ Kagami no Kyō), he oversees a magic mirror that can travel to other worlds.


The Fifth Ranked School Youkai. He is the guardian of the mirrors that lead to other worlds. He also controls the different personalities that humans show.

He has a nihilistic and wild personality, and is particularly vicious to humans. Apparently this is because of a grudge against humans from when he was still an animal spirit.

Even if he tries to falsify how he's feeling with a poker face, his emotions still come out through his tail. This is a source of much dismay to him.

(Translation by Spider Lily Translations)


Kyou has olive green hair, dark eyes and brown cat ears. He has a furry tail and wears a kimono printed with the kanji for mirror ( kagami).


Kyou is said to be vicious towards humans, but he is very calm and reserved otherwise; he is not cruel like other youkai. Kyou has a habit of saying random words in English.


Kyou managed to become a school youkai long ago when the other ranked members did all the work. Kyou oversees the mirrors at school, which at times can become portals to alternate worlds. Kyou polishes them every day.
