'''Sarutobi Ayame''' (猿飛 あやめ, ''Sarutobi Ayame''), mostly referred to as '''Sa-chan''', is a ninja from the Oniwabanshuu by training, but is currently working as an assassin. She also has a part-time job at the Kunoichi Café.
Since her initial appearance, she has developed a serious obsessive infatuation with [[Sakata Gintoki]], to the point of even stalking him. She is severely myopic, to the point of being almost blind (cannot tell living things from inanimate objects) without her eye glasses.
+
It is also hinted that she doesn't see well even with her eyeglasses on, as she once mistook Kagura (dressed up as Gintoki at episode 97 part 2 ) for Gintoki himself.However, this could solely be due to her infatuation with him. She has frequently clashed with [[Otae]] for various reasons.

==Personality==
 
==Personality==
Ayame has a playful attitude, but gets serious when it comes to her work. She also seems to enjoy bondage and S&M.Although Gintoki is indifferent to her affections and even treats her badly most times (e.g throwing things at her whenever he senses her stalker presence), her 'M' or masochistic personality only makes her enjoy the punishment, and his 'cruelty' only serves to encourage her. Despite the 'stalker' label, she feels insulted to be compared to [[Kondou Isao]] and his stalking of [[Shimura Tae]].
+
Sa-chan has a very loud personality. She has the tendency to scream and screech when excited or thrilled. She also consistently shows that she is very sex-oriented and perverted. Since [[Episode 22]], after her encounter with Gintoki, she has evidently shown her masochistic side and infatuation with the samurai, and in most of her appearances she is seen stalking him. He often treats her badly, especially when she is doing that, but she gladly enjoys the treatment. Sa-chan, however, does not like to be compared to [[Kondo Isao]] and his stalking to [[Shimura Tae]]. Although she is often very boisterous, she is sometimes shown to be very grave and serious in certain situations, such as when her job was protecting the Shogun
At multiple occasions, she has shown that her mind is very sex-oriented, trying to get Gintoki to join her S&M games, or being aroused by a lack of public decency.

She's been trained by Zenzou's father since childhood as a ninja.
+
She's been trained by Zenzou's father since childhood as a ninja. Sa-chan is an extremely skilled assassin who is especially good at throwing Kunais. Her physical skills are extraordinary and her aim is perfect. She can hit her target even without wearing her glasses, although Sa-chan's eyesight is extremely poor.
Ayame would soon reach the conclusion that she had to separate her love-life from her work, and thus she creates two different "modes" for herself. One of them is the Lovestruck-pig mode, while the other is her Killer mode, as she works an assassin. [[image: Sachanlovestruckpigmode.png | left | thumb | 150px | Sa-chan in her Lovestruck-pig mode]] [[image: Sachankillermode.png | right | thumb | 150px | Sa-chan in her Killer-mode]] Her Lovestruck-pig mode usually activites anytime she is around Sakata Gintoki, making her unstable and worrying about him rather than her work. Her Killer mode, on the other hand usually activates anytime she has to prioritize her job. Hilarity ensues when her cover is as a nurse, and she activates Killer mode on her patients whenever they interrupt her and Gintoki (who's in the hospital after his moped exploded).

They had a journey together and decided to meet offline since they had completed the game but there was no clue where the aliens were. In the offline meeting, they gave up searching and tried to move on as screwdriver. Sa-chan, who did not attend the meeting, could not give up since the aliens did not change her body part as screwdriver, which is compatible with Gintoki. She tried her best to investigate the location of the aliens alone. She told everyone about the aliens' whereabout. Gintoki, who had become a lorry driver, did not interested and chased Sa-chan away.

[[File:Gintama208-60.jpg|thumb|[[Episode 208]]]] Due her frequent hobby of stalking Gintoki, she sneaked in his house and hid in the television. She pretended to be the 3d screen television and asked for a kiss from Gintoki to turn the television off. Gintoki was pissed off and asked Sadaharu to kiss her instead of him. Sadaharu accidentally broke her glasses. She was very sad because the glasses were inherited from her grandmother. Knowing it was her fault, she left the house and left Gintoki with guilt. The guilty Gintoki brought her to an optical shop. Instead of buying new glasses, Gintoki took the shop owner's glasses and gave them to Sa-chan and sent the broken glasses to Gengai's shop for reparation. Sa-chan was so happy because it was the first present from Gintoki and promised him that she will take good care of the glasses. Even when she was in the missions, she wore that glasses although the glasses' description was not compatible with hers. Because of that, she failed as an assassin and was targeted to be annihilated by assassin punishers. She was severely injured protecting the glasses till the end. When visiting Sa-chan in the hospital, Hattori Zenzou told Gintoki, Shinpachi and Kagura about the incident. They decided to protect Sa-chan by assasinating the assassin punishers. Hattori was forced to help them and their battle was held in his house. After having a tough fight and it was a dead end for Yorozuya team to win, Sa-chan finally realized that the glasses were not the one who always be her pillar of strength, but their friendship.

===[[Confessional Arc]]===

She went, all wet and tired, to the Robo-girl confessional, and told Tama that she was "living with his boyfriend (actually stalking Gintoki from his closet)" and suddenly a dirty bearded man took her and throwed her to the river, she thought it was Gintoki who told the dirty bearded man to cast her to the river, and thus, she thought Gintoki was mad at her. She asked what she could do for Gintoki to forgive her. After Tama's final veredict, she was so relieved, and reasoned that if Gintoki was mad at her, then he wouldn't have thrown an "inflatable doll (Tokugawa Shigeshige's 'corpse')" for her, then she said she was going to return it to Gintoki.

==Gintama The Fin==
  +
After five years, Sa-chan's physical appearance didn't change at all. She kept the same outfits and the same look as she always did, because she was among the few people who believed that Gintoki was still alive. To cover the fact that Edo became a sad and terrifying place, she wanted to look the same as ever for Gintoki. But not just her appearance but also her feelings for Gintoki never changed, thus she strongly believed that he'd come back one day.
  +
  +
She visited Tae in a hospital along with Kyuubei and Tsukuyo. The fact that Tae was going to die because of the uncurable "White Plague" very soon grieved Sa-chan deeply. Thus she angrily shook and insulted Tae when she stated that Gintoki is supposed to hurry up before she dies and it's too late for her to say good bye, not wanting to accept that her eternal love-rival will die.[[File:Tumblr_myhodgOIIv1s0l4jxo1_500.gif|thumb|Sa-chan and Tsukuyo sending Gintoki off]]
  +
  +
After Gintoki manipulated the past to prevent the White Plague from spreading in Edo, Sa-chan later joined the war and teamed up with Tsukuyo, Kyuubei and Tae, who came back to life after the past was manipulated. When the women protected Gintoki and fought the Amantos trying to kill him, both Sa-chan and Tsukuyo refused to look Gintoki in the face, telling him that they're tired of seeing his face. After they promised him to take care of the Amantos, Sa-chan and Tsukuyo sent him off, hiding their crying faces from the man they love. When the Emmi and his troops were finally defeated, everyone, including Sa-chan, faded away, as the time line in which Gintoki didn't exist anymore was erased. Before fading, Sa-chan threw herself at Gintoki, asking for a final kiss. However, Tsukuyo made use of everyone fading and took Sa-chan's head to prevent her from kissing Gintoki, demanding her to fade away quietly.

Latest revision as of 14:13, July 18, 2019


"The duty you absolutely must fulfill still hasn't been carried out yet. To live and go home with the shogun, and with us. To go back to Edo together. Before being Oniwabanshuu, and before being shogun, that is a duty we have to fulfill as friends."
Sarutobi Ayame
Qotd


Sarutobi Ayame (猿飛 あやめ, Sarutobi Ayame), mostly referred to as Sa-chan, is a ninja from the Oniwabanshuu by training, but is currently working as an assassin. She also has a part-time job at the Kunoichi Café.

Since her initial appearance, she has developed a seriously obsessive infatuation with Sakata Gintoki, to the point of even stalking him. She is severely myopic, to the point of being almost blind (cannot tell living things from inanimate objects) without her eyeglasses.

It is also hinted that she doesn't see well even with her eyeglasses on, as she once mistook Kagura (dressed up as Gintoki at episode 97 part 2) for Gintoki himself. However, this could solely be due to her infatuation with him. She has frequently clashed with Otae for various reasons.

BackgroundEdit

Not much is known about Sa-chan's past. She was trained as a ninja in the Oniwabanshuu, but would later resign and become an assassin, as seen written in her resumé.

She attended the funeral of Zenzou's Father and it came to light that both she and Wakikaoru were his students and attended the same class together, during which they would often play Kick-the-can because it demanded the ability for them to hide themselves and make instantaneous decisions.

AppearanceEdit

She has long, light purple hair and wears dark-red glasses. There is a beauty mark under her right eye, and she is apparently big-breasted (mentioned by both Gintoki and Kagura). Her usual attire consists of a Martial Arts training uniform top with its arms cut off and a red band wrapped around the waist. Her arms are covered by dark purple forearm sleeves that matches her scarf in the same color, and on her left breast she has a protection cup. She wears black boots and her legs are mostly uncovered, except for some black hot-pants. She has been shown using many different kinds of weapons, such as kunai, metallic claws and other items. However, one that stands out in particular is her natto which basically means beans they are presented as sticky fermented bean dish, which she regularly uses to slow down her enemies, making them unable to move.

In her male form, she has short hair with her bangs on the left side of her head. Her usual outfit is similar to her female form only with a black long jacket.

Throughout the series, she has been shown wearing different outfits and costumes.

Sarutobi Ayame's GalleryEdit

PersonalityEdit

Sa-chan has a very loud personality. She has the tendency to scream and screech when excited or thrilled. She also consistently shows that she is very sex-oriented and perverted. Since Episode 22, after her encounter with Gintoki, she has evidently shown her masochistic side and infatuation with the samurai, and in most of her appearances she is seen stalking him. He often treats her badly, especially when she is doing that, but she gladly enjoys the treatment. Sa-chan, however, does not like to be compared to Kondo Isao and his stalking to Shimura Tae. Although she is often very boisterous, she is sometimes shown to be very grave and serious in certain situations, such as when her job was protecting the Shogun

Strength and AbilitiesEdit

She's been trained by Zenzou's father since childhood as a ninja. Sa-chan is an extremely skilled assassin who is especially good at throwing Kunais. Her physical skills are extraordinary and her aim is perfect. She can hit her target even without wearing her glasses, although Sa-chan's eyesight is extremely poor.

Ayame would soon reach the conclusion that she had to separate her love-life from her work, and thus she creates two different "modes" for herself. One of them is the Lovestruck-pig mode, while the other is her Killer-mode, as she works an assassin.
Sachanlovestruckpigmode

Sa-chan in her Lovestruck-pig mode

Sachankillermode

Sa-chan in her Killer-mode

Her Lovestruck-pig mode usually activates anytime she is around Sakata Gintoki, making her unstable and worrying about him rather than her work. Her Killer-mode, on the other hand usually activates anytime she has to prioritize her job. Hilarity ensues when her cover is as a nurse, and she activates Killer-mode on her patients whenever they interrupt her and Gintoki (who's in the hospital after his moped exploded).

Her favorite food is natto, which she can also use in combat. As it's so sticky, she can instantly immobilize her enemies.

When Hiraga Gengai repaired her glasses, he upgraded and added new features and these features are:

  • Shooting Laser beams.
  • The Earpiece can extend, multiply and attacking enemies.
  • Can analyse enemies from power level, range, lock on targets and predicting attack form.
  • Can transform her whole body into an armored angel:
    Sachan

    Sa-chan in her "The Flight of Hundred Glasses" mode

  • Use "The Glasses school of Ninjutsu" style.
  • The ultimate attack: "The Flight of Hundred Glasses", which fires hundreds of glasses from the wings at locked on targets face and detonates.

StoryEdit

Sarutobi Ayame is an assassin, but she also has a part-time job in the Kunoichi Kafé, where she works as a waitress. Her manager there is Kawasaki. When she is not working she seems to be spending most of her time stalking Sakata Gintoki. She also spends her time fighting with Tae, who she considers her love-rival. As she's very often lurking in Gintoki's house or following him around, she took part in many events the Yorozuya experienced.

They had a journey together and decided to meet offline since they had completed the game but there was no clue where the aliens were. In the offline meeting, they gave up searching and tried to move on as screwdriver. Sa-chan, who did not attend the meeting, could not give up since the aliens did not change her body part as screwdriver, which is compatible with Gintoki. She tried her best to investigate the location of the aliens alone. She told everyone about the aliens' whereabout. Gintoki, who had become a lorry driver, did not interested and chased Sa-chan away.

Sadaharu accidentally broke her glasses. She was very sad because the glasses were inherited from her grandmother. Knowing it was her fault, she left the house and left Gintoki with guilt. The guilty Gintoki brought her to an optical shop. Instead of buying new glasses, Gintoki took the shop owner's glasses and gave them to Sa-chan and sent the broken glasses to Gengai's shop for reparation. Sa-chan was so happy because it was the first present from Gintoki and promised him that she will take good care of the glasses. Even when she was in the missions, she wore that glasses although the glasses' description was not compatible with hers. Because of that, she failed as an assassin and was targeted to be annihilated by assassin punishers. She was severely injured protecting the glasses till the end. When visiting Sa-chan in the hospital, Hattori Zenzou told Gintoki, Shinpachi and Kagura about the incident. They decided to protect Sa-chan by assasinating the assassin punishers. Hattori was forced to help them and their battle was held in his house. After having a tough fight and it was a dead end for Yorozuya team to win, Sa-chan finally realized that the glasses were not the one who always be her pillar of strength, but their friendship.

Love Choriss ArcEdit

Scandal ArcEdit

Sa-chan along with OtoseShimura Tae, Hattori ZenzouYagyuu KyuubeiTsukuyo, and Hasegawa Taizou punked Sakata Gintoki into promising to quit drinking

Host Club ArcEdit

She seems to like the club since there are S&M services, carried out by Sougo. Hijikata and Shinpachi called them sick people. She became a customer, along with Tsukuyo, Yagyuu Kyuubei and Tokumori Saigou. Gintoki, Hijikata and Shinpachi had a hard time to serve them since they were all drunk and the host club had to please a special customer, Madame Yagami.

Kintama ArcEdit

Sa-chan is infatuated with Sakata Kintoki, who hypnotised everyone that he is Gintoki. She mistook Gin for Kin whilst not wearing glasses, and does not recognise Gin. She later realise, along with Kyubei and Tsukuyo that Gintoki wasn't a bad person, since she was saved by him when fell onto a top building and saved Kyubei and Tsukuyo when trouble appeared to them.

Dekoboko ArcEdit

Sa-chan transformed into a male body version where she becomes sexist to men, and claims to not be attracted to the female Gin, but this would prove to be not true as Sa-chan pesters Gin to wear a S&M outfit she has. Still associated with the S&M play, s/he stays as a masochist while the female Sougo plays the sadist. At the end, when everybody went to their normal appearances, she clings onto the sleeping Gintoki while watching a movie with everyone.

Confessional ArcEdit

She went, all wet and tired, to the Robo-girl confessional, and told Tama that she was "living with his boyfriend (actually stalking Gintoki from his closet)" and suddenly a dirty bearded man took her and throwed her to the river, she thought it was Gintoki who told the dirty bearded man to cast her to the river, and thus, she thought Gintoki was mad at her. She asked what she could do for Gintoki to forgive her. After Tama's final veredict, she was so relieved, and reasoned that if Gintoki was mad at her, then he wouldn't have thrown an "inflatable doll (Tokugawa Shigeshige's 'corpse')" for her, then she said she was going to return it to Gintoki.

Feigned Illness ArcEdit

When Kagura was at the hospital, Sarutobi was stalking Gintoki from a tree and was mad because she saw Kagura "flirting" with Gintoki, then he buried her head into the tree where she was.

Shogun Assassination ArcEdit

HDZ48 Arc Edit

She plays drums at the Hanakuso (snot) DiamondZ 48 band, and later played alongside Terakado Tsuu against the Amanto band Galaxy Kingdom Bitches 48.

Silver Soul ArcEdit

Gintama The FinEdit

After five years, Sa-chan's physical appearance didn't change at all. She kept the same outfits and the same look as she always did, because she was among the few people who believed that Gintoki was still alive. To cover the fact that Edo became a sad and terrifying place, she wanted to look the same as ever for Gintoki. But not just her appearance but also her feelings for Gintoki never changed, thus she strongly believed that he'd come back one day.

She visited Tae in a hospital along with Kyuubei and Tsukuyo. The fact that Tae was going to die because of the uncurable "White Plague" very soon grieved Sa-chan deeply. Thus she angrily shook and insulted Tae when she stated that Gintoki is supposed to hurry up before she dies and it's too late for her to say good bye, not wanting to accept that her eternal love-rival will die.

Sa-chan and Tsukuyo sending Gintoki off

After Gintoki manipulated the past to prevent the White Plague from spreading in Edo, Sa-chan later joined the war and teamed up with Tsukuyo, Kyuubei and Tae, who came back to life after the past was manipulated. When the women protected Gintoki and fought the Amantos trying to kill him, both Sa-chan and Tsukuyo refused to look Gintoki in the face, telling him that they're tired of seeing his face. After they promised him to take care of the Amantos, Sa-chan and Tsukuyo sent him off, hiding their crying faces from the man they love. When the Emmi and his troops were finally defeated, everyone, including Sa-chan, faded away, as the time line in which Gintoki didn't exist anymore was erased. Before fading, Sa-chan threw herself at Gintoki, asking for a final kiss. However, Tsukuyo made use of everyone fading and took Sa-chan's head to prevent her from kissing Gintoki, demanding her to fade away quietly.
