Kimura Kaere, student no. 18 of class 2-F and has Dissociative Identity Disorder. Kaere is a blonde foreigner from an overseas school. However, which country she's from is unknown.

She tends to be critical of Japanese culture, remark on the strange gestures and customs of her home country, and make lawsuits against a number of characters. At first she appeared to be American from her responses, but later on her remarks appear more bizarre. She once admitted to having only spent three months of her life away from Japan.

Her alter is named Kaede, a mild-mannered yamato nadeshiko ("ideal Japanese woman"); her Dissociative Identity Disorder developed due to the conflicting cultural differences of Japan and her home country.

Kaere sounds similar to the imperative form of the verb kaeru, "to return" or "to go back", and it can serve as a trigger for her alter to front.





  • Her name may be a reference to Kaela Kimura.
  • She is left-handed.
  • Kaere is the source of most of the panty shots in the whole series.
