Power Instinct 2

Kurara Hananokoji (花小路 クララ, Hananokouji Kurara) is a character in the Power Instinct series, having made her debut in Power Instinct 2 and has been a recurring character since. She was designed by Range Murata, and in her first two in-game appearances she was voiced by seiyuu Kotono Mitsuishi, best known for her role as Usagi Tsukino of Sailor Moon. Kurara has become one of the more recognizable characters in the series, having gained enough popularity to star in her own spin-off game, Purikura Daisakusen as Kurara Apricot (クララ・アプリコット), and made a guest appearance as a hidden character in a console port of another Atlus fighting game, Heaven's Gate.

In Matrimelee, her name was changed to Clara, a common English name that sounds similar (and would be pronounced the same way in Japanese).

About Kurara Edit

Kurara was a normal girl, until one day she met a wizard that lives in her city. She then began to visit the wizard everyday to talk and help him with his home duties. The wizard, grateful for Kurara's help and company, gave her a golden wand that allows its owner to use special magic.

With an independent and extravagant érsonality, Kurara is a bit ambitious, she likes money, enjoys traveling around the world, and highly dislikes poverty. Her favorite animals are pigs and her ideal man would be  a handsome man with lots of money that would litsen everything she wants to say. She has an older brother named Mitsugi who is 12 years older than her, but despite the age difference they have a very good relationship.

Participation Details Edit

After having failed in the previous tournament, Kurara is willing to make a second try by winning a world tour.

  • Toukon Matrimelee

The Matrimelee tournament seems to be the perfect opportunity to make her dream come true. The prize is getting married to a prince. Kurara accepted the invitation for the tournament, thinking that the Prince would be handsome...

  • Bonnou no Kaihou

  • Senzo Kuyou

Kurara feels that the festival is a good chance to find a rich handsome boy, so, pulling out her magic wand, she prepares to join into the tournament.

Purikura Daisakusen Edit

In the Game Purikura Daisakusen she appears as Kurara Apricot, the princess from a paceful kingdom called Miracle World. In the story of Purikura Daisakusen, Kurara was in a training journey in another world, and when she retuned to Miracle World, she found her kingdom invaded by an army of machines. Kurara later meets with her sister Kirara and her brother in law, Grey, they inform her that queen Urara (Kurara and Kirara's older sister) was kiddnaped by the leader of the scrap empire. So they start a mission to restore the peace in Miracle world and to recue the queen.

Kurara has a slightly different design and there are a couple of details in her profile that differs from the Power Instinct series(Birthpalce, Age, Height) but overall, all her other characteristic and personality traits remains the same and her bio confirms that when she stays on planet earth she uses de identity of Kurara Hananokoji, however her two sisters doesn't appear in the genealogic tree from the Power Instinct series, as well as Mitsugi, brother of Kurara and their mother Tomiko are not mentioned in Purikura Daisakusen, so it's not confirmed if the event's in Purikura Daisakusen are canon in the Power Instinct Universe or is just an alternate reality for Kurara.

Heaven's Gate Edit

Kurara appeared as a hidden selectable character in the console port of Heaven's Gate. However, there is not offical story or ending for her, just a small profile with information that seems to came from Purikura Daisakusen(her age and her birhtplace) although her lineage is listed as Hananokoji.

Her fighting style and moveset are completely different to those from the Power Instinct series. She is more like an alternate costume for Nanase(another playable female character ) than her own character, sharing most of her moves(with different names) and aspecial effects. Also her two portraits are reused artworks from Power Instinct 2 and most of her voice samples are from Purikura Daisakusen.
