Kaori (カオリ) was Tetsuo Shima's love interest in both the anime and manga versions. Her role differs from the manga, but her personality remains constant as that of a shy and timid girl.

History Edit

In the anime, she sided with Tetsuo, despite his reckless behavior. She was badly injured in the confrontation between Tetsuo and the clowns following his escape from the hospital and theft of Kaneda's bike. When Tetsuo started his uproar over Neo-Tokyo, she recognized him through news on TV and followed him.

She found him in the stadium and, when his powers manifested and caused his body to warp and expand into grotesque proportions, she was engulfed in his flesh and crushed to death by his oversized organs.
