Kanata Saotome (早乙女カナタ Saotome Kanata) is a major character and serves as a maid character in Akiba's Beat. Kanata is a 16 year old girl who works at the Violet Eden queen bar in the Akihabara side streets. Kanata was born male, but feels incredibly insecure about her birth gender, so Akemi Ecstasia took her in (being a drag queen herself) and she now works at Violet Eden alongside her mentor figure.
She is popular among regular customers, but constantly lacks confidence and gets nervous.
As of This post (10/08/2020), Kanata has been confirmed to be a trans girl by Kris Knigge, and does use she/her pronouns.
Her assisting moves in a battle are: I'll Do Good, I'll Do Better, and I'll Do My Best
