Rei lying on the Beach

Yuzu had seen this human girl on a beach somehow and wondered if she is in Spring Blossoms's world or not. Curious Yuzu had went close to the girl to look at her but apparently that was too close as the girl woke up and freaked out Yuzu waking her up and she chased Yuzu until she fainted.

She apologized for chasing Yuzu and explained why she ended up on the beach as by the look of her apperance she looks like a shipwreck survivor. However this was told false because she has a way of making up stories like this. She then pulled the tail of Yuzu by accident thinking it was a prop of cosplay.

Later on she went on with her friend Tanabe a Yuzu left.



  • There is not that much known about Rei since she was a one episode apperance character due to the fact the Konohana Kitan (anime) only had 12 episodes.
  • By the fact that Rei tends to make up stories and finding the real world dull could be that Rei could most likely have chūnibyō, a disease that is known for resilting in the individual in making up stories and appearing that way by coiencidence.
  • She could be like an innocent teen girl version of Arthur Fleck from the Joker movie.
  • She is the first strange visitor in episode 8.
  • She did have parents but she said her mother called her a liar harshly. It is unknown what happened to her mother or father if she ever had one or why she thought the real world was dull in the first place. If her mother only appeared in a flashback and other relatives are unknown it could speculate that she is an orphan.
  • By the apperance of her chestnut hair once being dark and brown eyes, she might be Part Japanese, Part Iranian and part German.
  • When she appeared on the beach some viewers of the anime were confused at first due to the fact Yuzu has lived in a mountainous region with dense forests. It could be that Yuzu coincedently ended up there. The confusion was intro saying Yuzu meets a strange visitor in the Inn.
