Kanna Kamui is a main character in the manga series Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid, written and illustrated by Coolkyousinnjya, and adapted into an anime series by the studio Kyoto Animation.

Debuting in Winter 2017, Kanna is one of the most famous girls to come out of the year's line-up, becoming renowned for her cuteness and child-like traits which were enhanced by KyoAni's creative efforts. She is also known as a highly sexualized figure in the anime community in spite (or because) of these traits including some sexually suggestive scenes; her reputation is best known as "don't lewd the dragon loli", which is largely propagated through internet memes.

Kanna debuted in the 2017 edition of International Saimoe League, where she won that year's Winter Diadem over fellow dragon Tohru. ISML 2018 was her first and best year; the young dragon quickly established herself as a top favorite to win that year's Tiara, winning the Diamond necklace and storming through the playoffs (pun intended) before succumbing to Rem in the finals.

Kanna is also notable for being the opponent of Mash Kyrielight in the fateful round of 32 match on 17 August 2017, an incident known in Bilibili Moe as the day Fate/Grand Order players settled in and dramatically changed the course of the 2017 contest.

In r/anime's Best Girl Contest, the electric dragon is a weak middle-tier contestant. Her reputation in the Internet doesn't help either; Kanna's best-ever finish in the tournament was her debut on Best Girl 5 where she reached the round of 64.
