Shizune Seo (瀬尾 静音, Seo Shizune?) is Azaka Kokutou's roommate. In "Future Gospel", she takes a prolific role.[1]



A top student of Reien Girl's Academy and Azaka Kokutou's roommate.[1] She has a collie dog named Akira. Her family handles a wine cellar.



A timid, introverted girl.[1] She shares the same hobby as Akira Seo and she works on it passionately.[2]


She was first mentioned in the 6th chapter "Oblivion Recorder", but doesn't appear in person until the novel. She was incorporated into the story since the early draft in preparation for acting as the protagonist of "Future Gospel". Although she was not very active in the main story of Kara no Kyoukai, a character of similar concept emerged in the side story of Tsukihime.[1]

The animated feature featured her in a speaking role near the end of the film, to Kinoko Nasu's surprise, as he thought Shizune would have a non dialogue appearance.[3]


Kara no KyoukaiEdit

Future GospelEdit

Shizune becomes an acquaintance of Mikiya Kokutou before she becomes roommates with Azaka and before Shiki and Mikiya becomes involved with Kirie Fujou's case. Mikiya was the first person to change a future predicted by Shizune as she predicted the death of a collar worker and Mikiya managed to pull him out from the danger at the last minute. Due to this Shizune sought friendship with Mikiya and disclosed her ability and circumstances to him; Mikiya on his part gives her warm advice about how she should change the way she sees herself and how she handles herself, thanks to this Shizune develops a slight attraction to Mikiya.

However, the moment she sees Shiki Ryougi Shizune understands, not only with her powers; but herself as a woman understands that she can't "surpass" Shiki's strong presence and gain a side next to Mikiya's heart. After a short interaction with Shiki, Shizune predicts that she will be the cause of Mikiya's death and decides to warn him (with no ill intention) that he should evade Shiki if he desires to live a long life. Mikiya tells her to stop her comments there; not because he thought that it was something insulting to Shiki, but because he didn't want to erase the possibility that he had to fulfill an important fate in his future. Mikiya understood perfectly that if he was going to push himself towards his own death, then he was doing so for Shiki's sake; and thus he decides to proceed forward to that fate without backing down. Seo could only watch how her "crush" walked bravely towards his future.

When Shizune actually meets Azaka for the first time and shakes hands with her, she actually predicts that they would become inseparable friends for all eternity and that they will have a marvelous time together. She thought that the fact that Azaka had the last name "Kokutou" was a coincidence.

Chapter 6: Oblivion RecorderEdit


Shizune thanking Azaka

When Shizune went back to her room once school resumed, she offered words of gratitude to Azaka as she had already seen that Azaka would solve a case during the break, even if she didn’t know the exact details.[4]

Chapter 7: Murder Speculation Part 2Edit

Mikiya later discloses to Shiki on how Shizune predicted that he might meet a hideous end if he stayed next to Shiki after he is nearly killed by Lio Shirazumi and loses his eye.


Shizune is gifted with special eyes that grant her the ability to see future events; a fact that she usually keeps a secret in order to avoid being mistreated by those who would doubt of her ability. Due to her power she carries complex feelings, for example she is bad at studying, but with her power, obtaining first place in every school exam is easy, since the image of the answers will automatically come to her when she want it to. She also feels guilty since whenever she reads the future of a person that equates to read a part of that person's life without permission. But, her biggest complex is her belief that whenever she foresees a disaster, she can't mend it at all; she strongly believes as the future that she sees as absolute and unchangeable, and thus sees herself as someone "cursed" to witness events without been able to do anything about it. However thanks to Mikiya that belief changes, and she now has a more positive outlook of her ability.
