This is a summary of the “divine” girl, Nagisa Kashiwagi, who often appears as a semi-regular on “Kaguya-sama: Love Is War”!
We take an in-depth look at her characteristics, the twisted affection she shows for her best friend Maki Shijo, and how she really feels about her boyfriend Tsubasa Tanuma!

Nagisa Kashigi Character Overview

出典 : ©赤坂アカ/集英社・かぐや様は告らせたい製作委員会 : TOP | TVアニメ『かぐや様は告らせたい~天才たちの恋愛頭脳戦~』公式サイト

She is a character in “Kaguya-sama: Love Is War” and is a second year high school student at Shuichiin Academy.
She has short hair and wears a hairpin in the left forelock, which is why her best friend Maki Shijo once called her “Henteko Hairpin Woman”.

She is the grandfather of a director of Keidanren and the father of Kashiwagi Shipbuilding, a major shipbuilding company, and she is one of the top-class daughters in Shuuchin Academy, where students of good family background gather, and she is one of the “Shuuchin VIPs”.
Her grades are excellent, and she always ranks high on the exams. (However, she is currently on the downward spiral.)
She is also the head of the volunteer department.

In the beginning, she seemed to have a crush on Shinomiya Kaguya, calling her “Kaguya-sama” like one of her cronies, and even asking her for advice on her love life.
After that, they gradually became like friends, and she frequently changed her name from “Kaguya-sama” to “Shinomiya-san” to “Kaguya-san” to “Kaguya-chan”, which was pointed out by Kaguya herself (Ice Kaguya).

His character is a serious person with common sense, but he has a twisted sense of humor when it comes to relationships.
On the other hand, she is also a reckless person who goes straight to the edge when she is convinced.

She is best friends with Maki Shijo, a distant relative of Kaguya.
Her classmate Tsubasa Tanuma fell in love with her and at first she didn’t seem to like it very much, but then she fell into his arms through “Wall of Good Luck” which was taught to her by the student council president Miyuki Shirogane, and they began to go out.
After that, he seems to have “fallen for it” during the summer vacation and they started flirting, even if it’s on campus.

Perhaps because of that kind of rear-end personality,Yuu Ishigami fears him instinctively, and Maki calls him “Satan” and he has become a fixture among the fans.

Her voice actor is Momo Asakura.

A twisted love for Maki Shijo and Tsubasa Tanuma

出典 :

Kashiwagi-san has been under suspicion by her fans.
It’s a warped affection for Maki.

At the end of the school festival chapter (volume 14), he invites Maki to dance with him at a campfire and says, “This is the kind of thing you do with the person you love the most, right? He smiles and tells her with a smile.
And then Maki asks, “Do you like it better than Tsubasa? When asked, he seemed to have no doubt in his mind, “Of course not, He answered, “I’m not going to be able to do that.
It’s a simple exchange between two best friends. …… It seems that Kashiwagi-san really means it.

It’s a good thing that you’re not a fan of this kind of thing, because it seems to me that she has always been one of those people who imitate Maki, who likes the same things that she does, and if she can’t share them, she’ll make them her own.
In other words, it’s possible that Maki knows that she likes Tsubasa and that’s why she dares to become his lover …….

Kashiwagi-san’s attitude towards Tsubasa in the work is that of a normal lover itself.
It’s not just that he’s a good friend of mine, but he’s also a good friend of mine.

However, we can’t deny the possibility that it’s all for the purpose of showing off to Maki.
It’s not just a case of “to show off to Maki”, but it’s also a case of “to show off to Maki”.
It’s hard to believe that she, who is supposed to be a sensible person, would do such things to her best friend without any consideration and without being aware of it, and it’s natural to think that she’s doing it on purpose.

Although Kashiwagi-san shows her yandere side here and there, I can only think that this side of her is directed towards Maki rather than Tsubasa.
The psychology of wanting to be like the person you admire …… is called “modeling” and it is a naturally occurring psychological state, but in her case it’s too much, and it’s clearly distorted.
It may be closer to “identification” or “projective identification”, in which one unconsciously confuses oneself with an object and obtains a sense of satisfaction or security by tracing the thoughts and actions of the object.

In any case, there is no doubt that Kashiwagi-san is a bad person.


Kaguya-sama’s character can change in one fell swoop when she’s dug in (some people don’t seem to change at all), but Kashiwagi is the number one character who seems to be in trouble when you dig in.
We’ll be keeping an eye on her to see what she truly looks like in the future!
