A determined schoolgirl who "possesses a remarkable hearing ability". She believes that by persevering in karuta, she will meet Arata again, and begins a karuta club at her high school with Mashima. While she is beautiful, she is considered too weird; her classmates refer to her as a "waste of a beauty". She has been described as a "tomboy trapped in a supermodel's body".
