Akane (better known as Jubei Yagyu) is a character from the Hyakka Ryouran: Samurai Girls series. She is a master samurai, contracted under Muneakira.
Akane has a detailed hairpin, and also a sword-guard in her hair. She wears a pink sweater-dress, with red ends and a white string looping through. On her back she has a Japanese drum with a long, tied white cord attached to it. At the end of the cord is made into what appears to be a brush, with a black holder with lettering on it, possibly the Yagyu surname. On her legs, she wears white tied cloths on her upper thighs, and brown shin-guards and black sandals.
Akane is an honorable warrior, giving out respect to those she deems worthy. She is innocent, cheerful, and forgets a lot of things, and acts somewhat child-like. She has a tendency to address people by nicknames. When she transforms, however, her personality drastically changes. She takes on a very sadistic nature.
She wields a katana and a wakizashi, the katana being able to detach into smaller blades. She can heighten her power level, (by kissing her contractor Muneakira) and become far stronger than her regular state.
- She shares her name with legendary samurai Yagyu Jubei Mitsuyoshi.
