However, she and Yaezakura were separated from the guild after the Catastrophe and she then founded her own guild, Sun Path. In the anime, she has made her way back to Akiba and participates in Operation Capture as a member of the Akiba Raid Party. She later joins the Shibuya Raid Team.
She originated from the Log Horizon fan fiction work Into a Remote Town. The story was later turned into an official side-story under the name Kushiyatama, Do Your Best!, in which she is the main heroine.
Kushi has long black hair and wears Japanese armor.
Although Kushi has a big-sister type personality, she is also a bit of a trickster and gets scolded by Misa often for that.
Before the Catastrophe
Kushi began playing Elder Tale around a decade ago, when she was in middle school. Ever since she was a child, her mother was always sickly. Kushi eventually went on to an engineering school and now works at an IT company. As a member of D.D.D, she built the guild's management system.
Kushi was one of D.D.D's Drei Klauen, but left Elder Tale for a while due to her worries that, having no boyfriend at her age, she would become too old to marry. (She also claimed that Krusty's names were too lame for her tastes.) However, she returned to the game for the twelfth expansion pack and found herself trapped in the world of Theldesia.
Fallen Guardian arc
In the anime, Kushiyatama and Yaezakura both participate as members of the Akiba Raid Party. Although they were both members of D.D.D, they are not seen interacting with Yuzuko and Rieze, other members of D.D.D who were also in the raid party.
Route 43 arc
Homesteading the Noosphere arc
She participates as a member of the Shibuya Raid Team; by this time, she presumably has rejoined D.D.D. It is unknown whether Yaezakura also returned to the guild, since she is not present as a member of the raid party.
Kushi uses a version of the War Miko build, focusing on her Fantasy-class Genji Armor's unusually high defense to charge on the front lines. In the anime, she is mostly seen in battle using her katana, and doesn't seem to focus much on her healing or damage mitigation skills.
Kushiyatama, Do Your Best!
|Genji Armor (源氏の鎧): Armor worn by a hero of the Knights of Izumo who was defeated when his older brother betrayed him. A fragment of their soul dwells in it to this very day, and when summoned, it is capable of freely controlling its blade.|
"For whatever reason, I feel like it's been talking lately..."
|[(lit. Cloud-Cutting Peony)] (雲切牡丹): Don't be fooled by its intricate, ornamental beauty—this Secret-class blade's famous for its keen edge. It boosts one's concentration while using skills, reducing cooldown time for skills that have reached Esoteric-rank.|
"Its length is just right, and the guard's got a nice design too."
|Hair Tie made from an Ancient Dragon's Beard (古竜髭の髪紐): A hair tie made from the hair of a wise ancient dragon's beard, rarely given as a proof of friendship. Its ability to make its wearer incredibly charismatic makes it coveted by politicians, but Kushiyatama simply uses it to get her long hair out of her face.|
"The raid I had to beat to get this thing was real tough!"
- Source 
- Both Kushi and Yaezakura come from a fan work called Into a Remote Town. Their appearances and equipment are from submissions from fans of the story, and were later adopted into the anime, light novel, and mobile game.
- The fan work was so popular, she placed 35th on the first official popularity poll despite being a fan character who had never appeared in the main series. She would not be introduced in the official Log Horizon universe for another year, making her formal debut in "Akiba Raid".
- She has several nicknames for her ex-D.D.D guildmates, such as "Ri-Ri" for Rieze and "Yama" for Misa.
- Apparently, among the reasons she left D.D.D was because she didn't like the name "Drei Klauen" and thought it was clownish.
