Kazuha, the newest Genshin Impact hero, has received particular attention from developer miHoYo ahead of his debut, with a teaser detailing his history as well as other character traits. Kaedehara Kazuha is a laid-back swordsman with a tumultuous background and a gameplay focus on assistance since he can enhance the damage of his teammates.
Players undertake tasks and explore a huge, open environment in Genshin Impact, an action-adventure game. The game also uses a gacha system, which allows players to acquire new characters and heroes at predetermined intervals.
Each new character has unique skills, fighting styles, and backstories. The broader breadth and mythology of the planet increases as new events and characters arrive. Kazuha is only one of the game’s many colorful characters, having been introduced a bit ahead of Sayu, Yoimiya, and Ayaka, who are also arriving soon.
Today, let's get to know the Ronin from Inazuma — Kaedehara Kazuha!
This young man's calm personality belies a razor sharp blade that has seen many battles.

Kazuha’s warrior history is revealed in a new Genshin Impact character teaser film, in which he prepares for combat alongside Beidou. In a tweet, he described his fighting style in further detail. He’s an Anemo with the Constellation Acer Palmatum, and his main skill is to enhance the damage dealt by his friends. When Kazuha uses the Swirl response, his allies’ attacks gain an Elemental Damage Bonus, and his Plunging Attack, Midare Ranzan, can additionally pull opponents in a while doing damage.
Kazuha has a carefree demeanor, according to Genshin Impact developer miHoYo, and likes reading poetry. He is not a picky eater, but he dislikes quickly prepared food and prefers meals prepared with care.
As his name “Kaedehara” loosely translates to “maple tree woodland,” he is associated with maple leaves. “Scarlet Leaves Pursue Wild Waves” is another allusion to this in his slogan. Earlier references of Kazuha said that his given name was “Kiryu,” but that it was altered for unexplained reasons.
Nobunaga Shimazaki (in Japanese) and Mark Whitten (in English) play Kazuha. Both have a history of voicing Corrin and Seteth from the Fire Emblem series. Shimazaki is well recognized for his role as Haruka Nanase in the anime series Free! Iwatobi Swim Club and its sequels. With Kazuha, both make their Genshin Impact debuts, bringing a little more sonic diversity to the voices gamers have already gotten accustomed to.
Each new character brought to the universe of Genshin Impact is greeted with joy by the game’s ardent fans. While there is no official word on when Kazuha will be introduced to the game (though it is likely around mid-to-late June), gamers will undoubtedly be anxious to check out his playstyle.
Meanwhile, fans are guessing about his past and how he will connect with the rest of the playable characters in Genshin Impact. For the time being, it’s reasonable to presume that Kazuha’s unique skills will shake up gameplay and offer gamers another incentive to return to Teyvat.
