Tsubomi Kido (木戸 つぼみ Kido Tsubomi) is the first member of the Mekakushi Dan and currently its leader.



Appearance

Kido is frequently mistaken for a boy due to her androgynous appearance. She wears a red vest with a high zip collar underneath a dark, pale purple-gray hoodie with a headphone design on the hood and an iPod button design on the front, along with volume bars on the pocket. Her jeans are green with white insides, and the left pant leg is rolled up to signify she's in a gang. Her shoes are mint green converse high tops. [2] Kido is noted to have a very pretty face by Momo and Takane when she went for the culture festival.[citation needed]
In Mekakucity Actors her hoodie is completely purple, and she ties her hair up in a ponytail.[3]
When she lived with her biological family, Kido wore a white blouse with a red ribbon attached and a frilly black skirt, along with white thigh highs.
In the orphanage, she wore a high-collared black sweater and shorts.

Personality

Kido grew up in the same orphanage as Seto and Kano. She is often listening to music through her earphones. Although she is naturally kind and has the most common sense within the group, she is short-tempered and has difficulty keeping other members, especially Kano and Seto, in line. She may appear scary at first glance, due to her dark expression and "glare-like gaze," as stated by Kano.[4][5] Kido is also very motherly, as stated by Shintaro, who is also impressed by her ability to stay calm around her friends.[6]
In the past she used to seem uninterested in many activities her siblings participated in, however still was a kind child. Due to her ability, her presence was weak and people often unintentionally ignored her, causing her to fear the possibility that she'd disappear. Being unable to control her ability, she would react shy and scared whenever someone would mention not noticing her. Over time, she started to become arrogant, developing "chuunibyou" ("8th grader syndrome").
After Ayano's death, Kido swore to become stronger so she could support everyone. In order to make her "feel" more like a leader, Kano decided that they should start calling each other with their last names since they sound like code names.[7]

Eye Ability


  • Concealing Eyes (目を隠す Me o Kakusu): Kido's ability is to "Hide One's Eyes". She can divert perception towards objects and people within 2 meters of herself, rendering them invisible. Conversation while hidden also won't be heard by outsiders. Physical contact, however, breaks the effect, so it isn't useful in very crowded places. Along with this vulnerability, if a person outside the 2 meter bubble is familiar with someone being concealed, her power will not be as strong.

    Kido's ability works more when preventing people from recognizing those being hidden, rather than making them unable to be seen. She has practiced to control her ability perfectly so she won't disappear all of a sudden.

Trivia


  • Like the other two from the orphanage, she is referred to by her last name rather than her first name.
  • Her favorite bands and artists are Oasis, RADIOHEAD, and Shugo Tokumaru.[1]
  • She refers to herself in first person as "ore," rather than "watashi," which is what most females use in Japanese. Along with this quirk, she refers to people in second person as "omae." As a result, her style of speech is considered masculine. Although, as a child, she used female pronouns.
  • Although she doesn't like flashy clothing, Kano has mentioned that she owns a frilly skirt somewhere.[8]
  • She apparently cooks very well.[6]
  • She is not a "tsundere", but a "kuudere", meaning she is soft inside but emotionless on the outside.
  • She is afraid of haunted houses and riding rollercoasters[5].
  • Her hoodie was a gift from Ayano when they were younger.[9]
  • She likes cute things, such as small animals.[10][11]
  • Kido hates keigo (polite speech) because her biological family often made cutting remarks to her using it. In the orphanage, she used to become very angry whenever Seto used it, which eventually led to him changing his speech style and developing a slight verbal tic.[11]
  • Her outfit was based on the lyrics of her song, Mekakushi Code.[12]
  • Kido is the third character to appear in the anime.
