Kaname Isaki (伊佐木 要 Isaki Kaname?) is one of the leading characters of Nagi no Asukara series and he has been childhood friends with Manaka Mukaido,Hikari Sakishima, and Chisaki Hiradaira


Through out the series, Kaname has sun-kissed blonde hair with the sea-blue eyes and pale skin. He is considered as a handsome young man. During part 1, he is seen in the underwater uniform. A blue and white sailor sweater with the blue tie, navy-blue jeans. While in part 2, after he wakes up, Kaname is seen in a high-collar, blue shirt with a black cardigan that has blue stripes on both arms and he wears black jeans. Other times, he can be seen in a white shirt, blue halfway unzipped jumper and normal blue jeans.


Kaname is very brave, willing to sacrifice his own well-being in order to protect the lives of innocents and those he cares for. He will not harm innocent people for his own convenience and dislikes pointless fighting. He has an open heart and thinks more about others than himself, naturally being very unselfish. He is sensitive to people's feelings and can be attentive on an individual basis. To make things well, he treats people gently or, when required, severely. He never adopts a pushy attitude, but instead is nonchalantly attentive such as when he acted towards the others. He has a strong spirit that allows him to conduct himself in an easygoing manner, not showing his weaknesses and hiding his true feelings. In addition to his intense curiosity, he takes an objective view on things. Should a question arise, he would investigate it. Kaname treasures his friends and will act purely on feelings if suspicions arose. When suspicions or ambiguities arose, he would actively investigate, even if he was in a dangerous place. He tried to see clearly the actual conditions or truth in things. He also has a great ability for understanding and an excellent memory. Kaname also has knowledge on a variety of things, all of which he understands deeply.
