Hare Menjou was one of the main supporting characters in Guilty Crown. She was a motion picture research club member and Shu's classmate. She lived at the same apartment block as Shu and had been to the same school as him since Junior High.
She had a very kind and carefree personality. Because of this, her Void takes the form of bandanges that have the ability to repair and heal anything, ranking her Void at 1830. She worried about Shu's social status and tells him that he's too dense. Hare also had feelings for Shu and believes that he would make a great "king". Hare is arguably the most kind-spirited character in the anime, hence the form and function of her void.
Hare had brown hair that was kept in two red bows and brown eyes. She usually wore her school uniform.
She is seen traveling to school with Shu, asking him why he looked so tired. She became upset when Shu just shook it off and Hare informs him that the terrorist attack in Ward 24 caused the GHQ to step up their security. At school she complains saying Shu wasn't succeeding because he was too dense. While walking down the hallway with Kanon, Shu gropes Kanon and Hare seems disappointed and says that Shu should've just asked her. She is seen amazed with everyone else that Inori is their new classmate and they leave her alone when Yahiro tells them to. Hare is shocked in a train some days after that Shu was just arrested by the GHQ and is seen breaking down into tears because of it. After Shu reunites with his classmates after the jailbreak, Hare and Shu run into Yahiro which leads Hare to stalk him for the rest of that day. Eventually she learns about Shu's secret and power where she becomes sympathetic for Shu and comes to his aid whenever he requests her or compelled to do so.
After the second coming of Lost Christmas, a battle with endlaves occurs after Shu is elected class president. Shu attempts to rescue Hare from a car explosion causing them to become fatally injured.
Hare uses her dying energy to revive Shu. She idolizes Shu as the fairy tale hero from her past, the Kind King, to whom she first fell in love with at a young age and entrusts Shu to be the great king that she sees within him. When a GHQ helicopter's turret suddenly shot and destroyed Hare's Void, her body began to crystallize, and as she slowly died from both her injuries and the destruction of her Void, she professed her love for Shu as she passed. After regaining consciousness and seeing Hare's corpse crystallize and shatter, Shu launched a violent rage filled assault against the enemy. Yahiro, who witnessed Hare's death from afar, lied to Shu in that Hare was killed by a genomic weapon. Hare's death overall left Shu emotionally shattered, to the point where he became ruthless and tyrannical towards others afterwards. In episode 22, after a few years have passed, Shu and the gang celebrated her birthday.
Hare's Void is called Lover's Bandages. Through her Void, she is able to repair any object or heal any person. When used, the Void wraps itself around the target and begins to glow and reverse any and all damages. The process takes time depending on both the object or person being healed and the extend of the damages.
When first drawn by Shu, he describes it as being "warm" like Hare herself.
Physically, the void resembles a long white segmented strip with purple jewels running along its length that glow when the Void's power is in use. When held, the Void moves around the user's arm on its own, as if flowing. Hare's Void continued to heal Shu even after being broken.
