Kabakichi (カバ吉) is a hippopotamus who passed away at a Zoo.



A small memorial for the recently departed Hippo was left in the zoo, and Shoma tried to bring his spirit to Kyoukai, as part of his assignment to bring a big animal (although he did not have to choose such a big one), but the Hippo proved to be too rough for him. They were both spotted by little Ichigo, who passed by Kabakichi's memorial along with her elementary class while visiting the zoo. After Kurosu abandons Shoma as the clock strikes 5pm, Ichigo would provide him tools with the assistance of Rokumon, and the two children manage to send the huge ghost into Kyoukai.


  • Kaba "カバ" means hippo, and Kuchi "吉" means luck.
