She is Chitose's younger twin sister.


Chizuru Full

Like her sister, she has wavy neck-length white hair. Unlike her sister, however, she has green tsurime eyes, instead of blue tareme eyes.

She's usually seen in her school uniform, but when not at school, she usually wears plain and simple clothes.


Initially, Chizuru is showed to be a cold and taciturn person, pretty much the opposite of Chitose's nice and cuddly nature. Her distant personality causes other people to feel intimidated and uneasy around her, resulting in her not having a lot of friends.

A thing both Ikeda sisters have in common is their ability to fantasize on Yuri pairings should they take off their glasses. However, unlike Chitose, Chizuru fantasizes on the Ayano/Chitose pairing and shares a strong dislike for Kyōko, thinking of her as a barrier to her fantasies. Also, unlike Chitose's nose bleeding, she drools instead.

During Season 3, her personality changes progressively throughout time; after a promise made to Kaede, she is currently working to smile more often and her personality generally softened around people, something which usually only happened when she was at home with her sister.


  • Chitose Ikeda: She is her twin sister, with whom she shares a strong bond with. According to Chitose, this may be because she is "just shy" since she, at home behaves like an ordinary sister, like scrubbing her back during baths, letting Chitose blow dry her hair and sleeping with her at the same bed.
  • Kyōko Toshinō: Kyōko first meets Chitzuru when she mistaken her for Chitose and attempts to get her attention by teasing and bothering her until Chizuru hits her.[1] After the mishap is cleared up, Chizuru still appears to find Kyōko quite annoying and a barrier between her fantasies. The latter is unaware this however, always seeking Chizuru out which results in a comical scene.
  • Kaede Furutani: Chizuru meets Kaede at the park when Kaede asks her what she's reading. After seeing Chizuru smile while talking about cats, Kaede says she has a wonderful smile and should do it more often. Chizuru then promises to Kaede that she would smile more.
  • Haruka Koyama/Takane Dezaki: Chizuru's classmates who try to befriend her but due to Chizuru's aloof personality, fail at first. They become friends with her after Chizuru plays volleyball with them during gym class.



  • The name Chizuru means "thousand" (千) (chi) and "crane, stork" (鶴) (tsuru/zuru).
    • An ancient Japanese legend stated that a person who could fold one thousand origami cranes by himself within one year would be granted eternal good luck or one wish.
  • Chizuru's surname Ikeda means "pool, pond" (池) (ike) and "field, rice paddy" (田) (ta/da).
  • Chizuru is the only student along with Rise who did not participate in the camping trip in the YuruYuri Nachuyachumi!. Chitose states this is because of her shyness when asked about. It is later revealed that she was at their home, staring at posters of Ayano and Chitose with her glasses off and drooling, showing that she was fantasizing.
