Akatsuki, the kawaii Assassin

Akatsuki, the kawaii Assassin

Let’s celebrate Akatsuki’s birthday

In the anime Log Horizon, Akatsuki is one of the players trapped in the MMORPG Elder Tale. She is a Human Assassin-Tracker who joins Shiroe and Naotsugu, at the beginning of the show. She later becomes one of the founding members of Log Horizon. She was a member of the Watermaple Consulate Raid Party and of the Shibuya Raid Team.

When we meet her first in Log Horizon, she has a dilemma being trapped in her Avatar’s body, which is a tall male assassin. Shiroe helped her out with a rare potion and she returned to her kawaii and short self. With her petite body, her purple eyes and hair, she is the embodiment of kawaiiness. Her Overskill is Shadow Lurk. Akatsuki means ‘Dawn’ or ‘Daybreak’ in Japanese and her real world name is Shizuka Hanekura.

She is seen as much younger as she is by everyone, due to her short stature. In the real world this caused her not to socialize well with people of her own age, she has never dated or had a close friend because of this. She is very sensitive about her ‘petite-ness’ and feels offended when people call her a ‘shrimp’ or ‘pipsqueak’.

She has a strong sense of duty, sees herself as Shiroe’s personal ninja and addresses him as her ’Lord’. She is self-conscious about her small build as well as the fact that she looks younger than her age. She shines in battle, her real-life kendo training is reflected in the way she fights her enemies.
