Natsuho has dark slate gray hair worn with a long side-ponytail that has a red tie with two silver bells tying it and neck length forelocks. She has bangs that split from the left, covering most of her right side of her forehead. She is normally seen wearing a pale pink hooded-jacket with a white collared-shirt. Attached to the collar is a red ribbon. A black short skirt is worn along with the outfit. She is sometimes seen wearing a school uniform with a gray collar that has one white stripe with a red ribbon tied to it. The outfit includes a black jacket with gray cuffed sleeves that have a single white stripe, a white collared-shirt underneath the jacket, a short black skirt, and black socks with black shoes.
When using her powers, she gains cat ears.
Natsuho has an extremely shy personality. In the beginning of the story, she would purposely only move through areas without people. In cases where she runs into strangers, she would often run into an alley in search for a cardboard box to hide under. In addition, she gets nervous when meeting new people. She gradually loses her nervousness when she befriends and hangs out with someone many times. She is generally nice.
It is seen later on that her shyness has been subdued somewhat to a degree that she can manage being near strangers as long as one of her friends stands between herself and the stranger in question.
She appears weak at heart, but when provoked her convictions are arguably stronger than any other character's.
Compared to most characters, Natsuho is very innocent.
Natsuho (夏歩): Natsu (夏) means "summer", and ho (歩) means "walk".
Nekogazaki (猫ヶ崎): Neko (猫) means "cat", while ga (ヶ) means "months", and zaki (崎) means "promontory" or "cape".
As a yokai, Natsuho has certain abilities. First, she is able to manifest claws from various parts of her body, most commonly her hands. These claws are near impenetrable (they are seen to crack under pressure during the battle with Itachizuka.) In addition, she has superhuman agility. With the added identity of the Hateful Cat, she is able to transform into a huge black cat, which is her yokai form, or a regular black cat. In addition, as the Hateful Cat, she possesses a sixth sense which acts as a premonition of various incidents.
