Chie Ashikaga (足利 知恵 Ashikaga Chie) is a main character of Cross Days.


Chie is the older sister of Yuuki Ashikaga. Upon entering Sakakino High, Chie became part of the girl's basketball team, where she befriended Ion Ishibashi, Youka Kira, and Tsutsumi Shibukawa, though her friendship with the latter would later be strained.

A year later, Chie would befriend Roka Kitsuregawa, taking her under her wing as her kouhai. She would also be outshone by Nanami Kanroji, leading to her envy of the freshman.


Chie is a tall and athletic girl. She has long hair, but may cut it short depending on the route in Cross Days; her short hair is used for her anime appearance.


Chie behaves harshly towards Yuuki and frequently uses him as an errand boy, but she does care about him; she tries to be supportive of his romantic relationship with whoever she thinks best for him, and in the Elder Sister ending, she is shown to be willing to sacrifice herself for her brother's sake.

Chie in the chapter 10 of the anime

Visual Novel

Although she isn't seen, Otome mentions her in The Video Tape.


She has a brief appearance in episode 10, when the basketball team makes a video presentation recorded in the "love room" during the school festival. Though not revealed in-game, she's the one mainly responsible for taping the rest room. Her main purpose was to humiliate Nanami; Makoto and Otome being caught by Sekai was simply coincidence.

She makes no appearance in the manga.

Cross Days

Visual Novel

She introduces Yuuki to Roka at the beginning of the game and tries to matchmake them, though she can change her mind if Roka's jealousy plot with Makoto comes into play. It is also shown that she was the one who recorded the break rooms during the school festival to humiliate Nanami.

In some routes, Chie meets Mr. Katsura at Sweets Ohara, develops a crush on him, and plans to invite him to the school festival. Although she apparently fails in most routes, in one route, she is shown taking him to the Haunted House, explaining that it's an "interesting" place (which leads to them almost discovering Taisuke raping Kotonoha in the Secret Fall ending). 

In Elder Sister, she can discover that Yuuki and "Yuu" are the same person, only to then claim herself to be "Yuu" in hopes of protecting Yuuki from a yandere Kotonoha.


Although her characterization is much the same, Chie's rivalry with Nanami, her complicity in taping the "break rooms", and her crush on Mr. Katsura are left out entirely.


  • Her given name Chie (知恵) means "wisdom".
  • Her surname comes from the Ashikaga clan.


  • Due to the stress of being outdone on the basketball team, she and her friends smoke.
  • She makes her anime debut with short hair but uses extensions of hair as seen in Cross Days.
  • The School Days Anime only mentioned her surname.
