Media Debut
Manga Chapter 34

Kinu is an Oni and probationary agent of the private security company, TALIO. Her designated partner is Liz, the Lizardwoman. Liz and Kinu are trained as special body guards for Liminal's VIPs, but due to their clumsy nature, their success at work is more down to luck than professionalism. She makes her debut in Chapter 34.


Kinu possesses the typical traits of her Oni race: two small horns, bright red skin, and intimidating height. Despite being taller than her partner Liz, she is actually shorter than MON's resident Ogre Tionishia.

Her hair is styled in traditional hime-style bangs (modified for her horns), and a high ponytail; she always has a smile on her face.


Kinu is kind, cheerful, and peppy, but she is also often whiny when situations become dire, and is a bit ditzy compared to her more composed partner Liz. Despite her clumsiness, Kinu also has a strong sense of responsibility and tries to do her job at TALIO as well as possible. However, like Liz, she also tends to jump to conclusions, such as when they both suspected Lala despite having no real evidence.

As shown in Chapter 34, Kino also has a strong dislike or even phobia of insects. When a bug fell in her neckline, she went into a fit of hysteria, which both Kimihito and Liz had a hard time calming her down.

Skills & Traits[]

Physical Traits[]

  • Oni Physiology:
    • Intimidation: As a member of the Ogre family, Kinu's height and strength alone is enough to scare potential attackers away from her, despite her lax personality.
    • Ogre size: Kinu is pretty huge in comparison to her friend Liz, but as an Oni she is actually smaller in comparison to the rest of the Ogre species. It still makes it harder to find clothes to fit Kinu, let alone fashionably.
    • Superhuman Strength: Kinu has above-average strength that is typical of her race, so she is able to handle the more tougher liminals / extra-species.
    • Resilience: Kinu is able to resist most kinds of physical pressure, but if someone is familiar with an Ogre's weakness (Ogre's sensitive horns); she quickly loses it.


Liz and Kinu were targeting the mysterious "X O" that was living in the Kurusu residence. In their observation, they assumed that their intended target was Suu who was technically an illegal interspecies, and addressed her as "Princess"; they quickly captured Suu, alongside Kimihito and Mero who feared Suu's deportation; were taken as bycatch for Suu's safety. Explaining their situation to Kimihito, their job wasn't to deport Suu, but to protect her from other attackers. During the drive Liz accidentally crashed the car forcing them to travel on foot.

Suu easily exploited Kinu and Liz's custody: First she climbed on Kinu's shoulders and fondled her horns, causing Kinu to spasm. Second, she exploited Liz by making her buy drinks for her when she was thirsty. When Liz sensed a "malevolent presence", Suu transformed into a garbage container, able to hide Mero from the entity.

However, since there wasn't enough space in the "container" for Kimihito, Kinu and Liz, they hid in a closet that was also in the alley. However, when a beetle fell into Kinu's neckline, she had such a fit of shock that the hiding place of the three flew open. Liz then tried to throw off her tail to distract the supposed attacker; however, when Kimihito heard that she could die from starvation, he tried to stop Liz, but accidentally grabbed her butt.

This caused Liz to hit Kimihito, who had realized it was only Lala who was following them. Lala later revealed she followed them because she sensed a terrible burden Liz and Kinu had when they realized they failed their mission. Mero was able to calm the pair down and gently uplifted them a bit (using her royal aura), to carry on their duties.

During this their boss arrived and actually congratulated them for finishing their mission, which was protecting Mero, not Suu as they unintentionally assumed. Despite this, they were given praise for their job well done, though they were berated for not being able to differentiate Japanese writing between Katakana, and symbols in their paperwork.

After this, they continued their work at TALIO, and were able to enjoy a weekend at Yukio's Arctic Inn.

Liz's and Kinu's Secrets

Oni (鬼) are a smaller Ogre subspecies. Aside from their colorful skin ranging from red to blue and two small horns, Oni are genetically no different from standard Ogres. Standing only two meters tall (6'6"), they are slightly smaller than Ogres, making them the smallest of the Ogre subspecies, though they are still larger than the average human.

Red Oni are thought to be crybabies and Blue Oni are considered self-sacrificing, but it is unclear whether or not there is any truth to these claims. It is customary for Oni to dress in tiger-striped clothes.
