She also loves curry.

(From the Gou website.)


Chie has blue hair and wears a white dress.


Chie loves teaching and will do whatever it takes to ensure her students are safe. She also loves curry and will not tolerate disrespect for it.



Chie is present throughout Onikakushi-hen and Watanagashi-hen, however she doesn't have a sprite in the original visual novel.


Chie makes her first proper appearance and hosts a curry-cooking competition with her class.

Keiichi convinces Chie to check on Satoko after it becomes known that Satoko's uncle is abusing her, and she eventually calls child protective services.

In the credits, it is stated that Chie died in an accident while fleeing the Great Hinamizawa Disaster.
