Reject Five Edit
They have been best friends since their freshmen year and were in the same class. However Ouka's lack of perception and wild behavior, tends to lead the sweet and clumsy Yawakaze being placed in embarrassing situations.
Despite that, both girls remain good friends, even putting aside their rank differences in school hierarchy to hang out with no problems. Coincidentally, both girls are shown to have romantic feelings for the same boy but don't seem to be aware of this.
Despite belonging to two different factions, they are shown to be on friendly terms with one another even if his curse hampers with their interaction. During one outing with him and Ouka, the matter of his second mission came up but Kanade instead protected Konagi from a robber who was moving to attack her and she may have developed feelings for him because he protected her from harm, due to calling him brave and smiling greatly at him after it was over.
Her feelings for him are hinted on occasion, as while she is usually nervous when talking to other boys she is shown to be fine when talking to him, despite his bad reputation with others and antics. She was even okay with him staring at her in a swimsuit at the waterpark and was worried for him after he was woozy from a ride on the roller coaster with Ouka. However, their friendship usually earns Kanade the ire of the other students notably her bodyguards while Yawakaze apologizes for these instances.
Kanade is oblivious to her affections but he considers her to be a sweet girl while being amazed and often guilty by her pure and innocent personality.
Her Bodyguards Edit
It was shown in episode 4, that due to her sweet and innocent personality as well her student rank, Yawakaze has gained a group of admirers who swore to protect her reputation from being sullied. Whenever anyone or mostly Kanade gets too close to her, the guards would appear and proceed to violently beat him for believing he and Yawakaze are close friends. In episode 10, they beat up Kanade even though he did nothing to Konagi before attacking another boy who attempted to make advances on her.
