Kanae Personality

Kanae is supposedly 20 years old, but his actual age is unknown. He is often considered a mysterious person because he is not easy to read. However, his charming and sociable disposition has made him quite popular. Kanae is known to be very good at holding conversations effortlessly and has in turn developed a wide social circle of friends. He has collaborated with many gamers, manga artists, voice actors, and even international Nijisanji members. Even with a language barrier he can communicate and make others comfortable. He is not known to ever get very emotional and is always calm and confident.

Kanae has a mischievous side as well. He is known for lying very casually and using a lot of sarcasm. This, however, is also a part of his charm. Kanae always speaks highly of his friends and wants to improve himself as well.

Kana’s mascot is a black cat plushie called Roto. Roto is a cat demon possessing this stuffed doll. Roto has the ability to transform freely. He has a deep low voice and doesn’t speak much, making other Nijisanji mascots scared of him.

One of Kanae’s appealing points is how good he is at games. He is very experienced with playing Minecraft and often makes very impressive builds.
