Kaoruko Mayuzumi (黛薫子, Mayuzumi Kaoruko) is a 2nd year IS Academy Student and Vice-President of the Newspaper Club.


Kaoruko has blue eyes, wears glasses and has dark brown hair attached in a short ponytail.


She is very forward and isn't shy to ask embarrassing questions, such as when she interviewed Ichika and Cecilia.


  • Ichika Orimura - She, like other girls, has a fascination for Ichika. She even told Ichika that he has to go on a date with her to "pay" for  constructing Kanzashi IS.  
  • Tatenashi Sarashiki - In the past, Kaoruko had given Tatenashi many suggestions on building her own IS.

Infinite Stratos & AbilitiesEdit

It can be deduced from Tatenashi's comments about her help that Kaoruko is the elite of the second year, and hence, her abilities at constructing and customizing an IS are very good. She has also displayed to have high physical abilities, being able to dodge attacks from an angry Tatenashi while taking pictures of her at the same time.


In the past, Kaoruko and Nohotoke Utsuho had helped Tatenashi build her own IS. The two were also part of the IS maintenance branch and continue to maintain it up to the present day.

Plot SynopsisEdit
