Snake of Clearing Eyes
If he is dear to you, use your monstrous powers.
~ The Snake to Marry, while possessing Konoha

The Snake of Clearing Eyes is one of the snakes of Azami and was the one who suggested creating the Heat Haze to her. It is also known to have given Kenjirou his eye ability. It is the main antagonist of the story.


The Snake of Clearing Eyes is, like all the other snakes of Azami, a solid black snake with deep red eyes.

While it did not affect Kenjirou's appearance while possessing him, aside from giving him the usual red eyes while using his power, it affected Konoha greatly, as he has black hair in this version and wears a black shirt instead of a white one. The black shirt that Konoha wears beneath the upper one remains black. His eyes appear yellow, as do the yellow circles above the right cheek.


The Snake of Clearing Eyes can be considered evil and malicious. It has a rather indifferent view on things, although it does tend to look down on its subjects, like other snakes do. Because Kenjirou is its "master", it intends to obey his desire, which is to meet Ayaka again. It can go through drastic extents to reach "its" goal, such as killing Kenjirou's precious students Takane and Haruka.

While inside Konoha, the snake takes on an even crueler character; it kills the entire gang with seemingly glee, just so that it could make Marry use her power to unite the snakes.

After Azami left the world and entered the Heat Haze, the snake attempted to use Marry to create a new Medusa in the real world, as stated by Kano.


  • The Snake and Konoha share the same voice actor, even when the snake is in his regular form.
  • The Snake of Clearing Eyes is widely known under the alias "Dark Konoha" or "Kuroha" (A mix between "Kuro", the japanese word for "Black" and Konoha, basically meaning Black Konoha) by the fans of the series, while possessing the body of Konoha. However, since this version of the snake is no own character, there is no canon name for this form. He was mistakenly believed to be an alternative personality of Konoha for the longest time.
