Kaoru Nanase is a character in Tsurezure Children. She is in class 1-9 and is apart of the Astronomy Club. She later takes up the role as the Astronomy Club Vice President.
Kaoru has short purple hair that is clipped back with two ring clips.
Kaoru is a major Tsundere, a person that acts harsh towards people but is actually very caring. After Yuuki got rejected by Satsuki, Kaoru comforted and watched over Yuuki. Kaoru always wanted to break her bad habit of coming off rude.
Kaoru has the tendency to snap when she's angry, even to the point when she once kicked someone when they asked if she liked Yuuki.
Yuuki is Kaoru's childhood friend and love interest, despite acting like she hates him. In chapter 193, Yuuki confesses his love to Kaoru.
Satsuki is a fellow member of the Astronomy Club. Kaoru was aware that Satsuki had a boyfriend, and caused her the urge to make Yuuki confess to her even more, because she knew he would get rejected.
