Kanae is a Partner in Arcaea. She is available through Dormant Echoes after purchasing the Sunset Radiance pack and was made for the Arcaea Song Contest Grand Prize winner, A Wandering Melody of Love.



Kanae's name, 叶永, is derived from 叶える (to grant wishes) and 永遠 (forever).


Kanae has long, wavy light brown hair and yellow eyes. The upper section of her hair is braided and held in place by two dark blue bows with white flowers; below this, her hair continues in loose twintails.

She wears a light yellow yukata with a floral pattern over top of a white collared garment with a dark blue bow. Her obi is dark blue with a pink checkered pattern, matching the blue geta on her feet. She also wears a white shawl with an orange floral pattern at the ends, tied around her waist. Three colorful balloons — one pink, one yellow, and one blue — are tied to her left hand, with bells attached to their strings. She holds a kitsune mask in her right hand, also with bells attached; in the artwork for A Wandering Melody of Love and AI[UE]OON, it is tied around her head.

Kanae is focused on FRAG, with a higher-than-average stat sum of 170 for a Balance-type partner compared to the baseline Tairitsu stat sum of 160.

  • Her maximum FRAG stat translate to 1.90x fragment multiplier.
  • Her maximum STEP stat translate to 1.50x step multiplier for World Mode.

Kanae currently has the highest FRAG stat of any non-event character at level 20, surpassing unawakened Kou by 5 points. This makes her an excellent partner for FRAG farming if the player has missed the event for Pandora Nemesis (MTA-XXX), or has yet to awaken Kou. Being a balance-type partner with no other skill effects, she is a relatively-low risk FRAG farming partner and is overall an excellent partner to use in normal play. However, once the player has awakened Kou, she is outclassed.

Her STEP stat is not that great but considering that her lowest STEP stat is 50 (1.00x multiplier), using her in World Mode still means that the player will not lose any step acquired. It is still advisable to use other partners such as Tairitsu (Grievous Lady) or Regulus (MDA-21) (awakened).


Kanae's skill changes the attribute of the background for certain songs in Sunset Radiance in the following manner, depending on the device time:

  • 6:00 AM to 7:59 PM - Conflict → Light
  • 8:00 PM to 5:59 AM - Light → Conflict

Playing a song past the transition time does not cause the background to change immediately; it only takes effect upon next play.

During the Beyond challenge, only the side will be changed; the background remains the same.
