Aya-me (殺女 Ayame?) (also known as Ayame Fujieda (藤枝 あやめ Fujieda Ayame?)) is a former supporting character turned one of the main antagonists from the original Sakura Wars.

Crosspedia Entry[]

Ayame Fujieda, the second in command of the Imperial Assault Force, was implanted with a Kouma seed, and when it awoke this is what she was turned into. A total transformation from the beautiful, kind and intelligent Ayame, she is now cold and unforgiving. As a leading member of the "Black Demon Society," she worked alongside Aoi Satan to bring out the destruction of the capital, facing off with the Imperial Assault Force as they opposed the Kouma. She skillfully wields a whip during battle and has wings on her back that make her capable of flight.


Prior to becoming a Kouma, Ayame was once a prominent member of the Imperial Assault Force. She had been the one to recruit the current members of the Imperial Assault Force, most of which had possessed exceptional spiritual powers and also the excellent potentials needed to utilize the Kobu.


Project X Zone[]

She makes her debut in Chapter 9: Justice Over Evil. In the past, she had been killed twice and had temporarily stayed at the Makai until the events of the game where she revives and attacks the heroes. However, she feels that her body is not enough for defeat Ichiro and retreats from the city. Later, she appears in Chapter 15: The Gain Ground System, who helps Due to go to Makai in order to seek a more suitable world for the Koumas to obtain more power, but is defeated and she flees to the Makai.

She then reappears in Chapter 22: God, Man, and Demon in God-Eating Fool's Carrier, a server from The World created by Feydooms based on Soma, Alisa, Lindow, Bruno, Toma and Cyrille's memories. She only comes to hinder the mission of the heroes in recovering the fragments of Aura, however, she is defeated and retreats from the server. In Chapter 25: A Storm of Romance, she collaborates along with Oros Phlox in using the Fujisakura's spirit power as weapon to damage several worlds with a simple blast, but their plan is aborted by Ichiro and Sakura when they released their energy to the heavens, calming the Fujisakura's spirit. When she sees that their plan has failed, she proceeds to attack the heroes, but is defeated and she retreats from the tree, but not before vowing to Ichiro that they will soon settle things between them.

In Chapter 34: Is Paris Burning Again?, she reveals that the evils of the world are gathering in one place and she lets them bear witness to the event, but in doing so fuels Ichiro's determination to stop her. She is finally defeated, but before she dies, the true persona of Ayame Fujieda emerges and encourages Ichiro to fight on with her last words and promises that they will see each other again underneath the cherry blossom tree. In Final Chapter: The Winged Wanderers, a Aya-me's clone is created by Fused Meden along with other bosses units, to attack the heroes.

Project X Zone 2[]

Aya-me returns in the sequel, Project X Zone 2, first appearing in Chapter 19: Call of the Evening. Appearing outside Chattes Noires, Ichiro Ogami asks how she could have come back to life, especially when he feels she has no reason to oppose them. She replies that she is a being born of the malice of men, and now, she is bound to the world due to the power that has been piercing the dimensions, which the heroes surmise is because of the golden chains. After Sheath arrives on the scene, Ayame Fujieda manages to break free of her control and reveals to the group that the chains are seeking out their other half, which had been shattered into 101 fragments. She tries to tell them who it is that sent out the chains but Sheath stops her, so she asks Ogami to cut her connection to the Kouma, which is what is binding her, before Aya-me regains control. When Saya is summoned by Sheath, Aya-me offers to aid Ouma to fulfill the vengeance of the Kouma. After she is defeated, Ogami and Sakura demand the Kouma release Ayame, but Aya-me retorts that the battle has only begun. Ayame is, however, able to break through again and tells Ogami that the answer to freeing her must be found within his heart before retreating.

Aya-me's second appearance is in Chapter 24: Beautiful, Dangerous Wood Sprites, appearing in the Forest of Idols accompanying Sheath and her Ouma forces. The heroes theorize that as long as the golden chains exist, Aya-me will continue to exist as well. She brings forth an army of Kouma demons to fight the heroes but is defeated, and due to the golden chains having been removed, Aya-me starts struggling for control over Ayame's body, but she manages but escape.

Aya-me's third appearance is in Chapter 31: Turnabout Dance, appearing with an army of Kouma alongside Saya and Juri Han with their own forces, all having been brought to the Ryugo-jo by Saya due to her familiarity with it. The heroes deduce she is trying to increase the Kouma's strength and unleash them onto the world by collecting the golden chains. After she is defeated, Aya-me tells Ogami that the time is drawing near but the grudge of the Kouma can not be easily quenched. As she retreats, Sakura wonders who was speaking to them as Ogami resolves to not hold back.

Aya-me's fourth and final appearance is in Chapter 39: So Long, My Love, emerging from a portal in the Shinjuku Bypass following Black Hayato. The group notice that this time she isn't with Ouma and ask if she wanted the same thing as Ciseaux and Ranmaru, but she replies that the land was serving as a transit hub for every other world now that Ouma's plan was nearing its final stage. Ayame remerges and reveals that the power of the chains is transforming into something different, and due to that, the curse of the Kouma was weakening, and she asks Ogami to finish their fight here and now just as Aya-me returns to claim the curse of the Kouma can never be broken. Nevertheless, she is defeated for the final time and Ayame Fujieda finally regains control. She thanks Ogami for freeing her and tells Sakura to stop Ouma so they can't let all of this happen again. Ogami tells her to let her spirit return to their time peacefully as she wish him luck. She then flies into the sky and explodes.
