Shakugan no Shana Wiki

Chigusa Sakai (坂井千草 Sakai Chigusa?) is the wife of Kantarō Sakai and the mother of Yūji Sakai and Miyu Sakai.


Chigusa has brown hair that is tied in a ponytail by a mint ribbon and olive eyes. She is very beautiful to the extent that Yūji's friends are jealous of him.[1]


Chigusa can seem to be a gentle woman, but she can be surprisingly forceful, and is kindhearted in various ways.[2] Possessing both kindness and strength, she is able to strongly object to things she doesn't agree with.[1] She is very intelligent and though remains ignorant of Shana and Yūji Sakai's true nature, she becomes a source of good advice for Shana on matters where Alastor can not counsel her. The Crimson Lord himself acknowledges and bows to her wisdom after a phone call between the two of them. Broadminded,[3] she seems to be able to accept anything and not worry about the details, harboring absolutely no problems with Shana often visiting her house.[1]


Kantarō Sakai has referred to Chigusa's past when she seems to have been raised in an orphanage.[citation needed]

She stays at home as a housewife while Kantarō works abroad.[4]


As Shana's affection for Yūji Sakai grows, she begins to seek out Chigusa more often for advice or help. Generally, this is in the form of asking her to teach Shana how to make a bento, as she is repeatedly jealous at Kazumi Yoshida's ability to make Yuji a bento for lunch. Chigusa often coaches Shana through the steps, despite her obvious, if not dangerous, lack of progress. Chigusa may have bitten off more than she can chew when she attempted to teach Wilhelmina Carmel, an even more disastrous cook, which resulted in a rather large mess in the kitchen. It has been implied that she was seen pregnant in recent volumes.
