Growing up in a family of witches hasn't been easy for Hitomi Tsukishiro. At a young age, Hitomi lost her ability to see color. This caused Hitomi much pain as she slowly started to lose her emotional attachment to everything. Thanks to colorblindness, Hitomi stopped trying to make friends and has grown up alone. Not wanting to see her suffer anymore, Hitomi's grandmother, Kohaku, uses her magic to send her back in time 60 years to meet her younger self. Now in the year 2018, Hitomi must adapt to live in the past and learn why it was, her grandmother wanted her to travel to the past.
Kohaku Tsukishiro Highlights (Spoilers Beyond This Point)
1. The Many Sides of Kohaku
Kohaku is a deep and interesting character that gets to experience a wide array of different emotions over the course of the series. We get some great scenes where Kohaku comes off as prideful and even a bit arrogant about her magical prowess but then we also get great scenes where Kohaku is able to display her caring side like when she forces Hitomi and Yuito to spend time together. Kohaku has so many great moments that show off the many sides of her character that help her feel like more like a real person instead of just another character.
2. Kohaku’s Magic
Kohaku is a very talented witch and her magic is beautiful. While her magic may not always go off without a hitch, Kohaku's talent is truly impressive. Whether it is making a train appear in the classroom, or just making some simple star-sand, Kohaku always works her hardest to help people see the greatness of magic.
3. The Club’s Nighttime Adventure
During the club’s nighttime photography session on top of the school, we get to learn a lot about Kohaku. Kohaku shows off her mischievous and playful sides by scaring Kurumi with her magic. We also learn how perceptive Kohaku is as she is able to pick up on most of the romantic pairings after spending a short amount of time with them.
4. Questions About the Future
This is a very short scene in the anime, but it is by far one of Kohaku's cutest moments. While talking to Hitomi about her future Kohaku asks about her future husband, but before she is able to answer, Kohaku cuts her off deciding she no longer wants to know. We never really get to see this flustered and bashful side of Kohaku, making this scene all the more precious.
5. Granny Kohaku
One of things that makes Kohaku so great is we get to experience Kohaku at two different points in her life. While we may get to enjoy more of young Kohaku, Granny Kohaku has her own special charm. Granny Kohaku has all of the great traits that she had when she was younger and makes them even better. Over the 60-year time gap, Kohaku becomes an even more caring and dedicated person and her magical prowess is now second to none.
Kohaku is a truly fantastic character that has plenty of things to love about her. While she may not be the most important character in her series, she is the most important character in our hearts.
