Tsumugi Takanashi

Tsumugi Takanashi (小鳥遊 紡, Takanashi Tsumugi) is the very polite, kind and energetic main heroine, who in every way a manager and fan could and would loves i7 with all her heart. She’s very optimistic, with a big heart. She’s also a bit on the clumsy side, and is almost as bad as keeping things a secret as Riku Nanase is. Still, she has her moments of sarcasm and near-sadism with the boys, and you’d do well not to take her lightly.

Etymology Edit



  • 小鳥 = small bird
  • 遊 = play; wander; travel

Given Name

  • 紡 = speak; spin

Just like TSUNASHI surname, the surname Takanashi 小鳥遊 is quite a unique name. We can change the surname 小鳥遊 into a phrase, that is 小鳥が遊ぶ - kotori ga asobu which means “The small birds are playing”. Then, why is it read as Takanashi not Kotoriaso? It’s because Japanese really likes word association game. The situation where small birds can play freely is a situation free of hawks which are their predator. Hawk is 鷹 Taka in Japanese. The absence of something is 無し Nashi in Japanese. Thus, this rare family name is read as Takanashi.

Trivia Edit

  • Gaku definitely has a crush on her.[2]
  • Gave Valentine’s chocolates to Banri Ogami when she was younger
  • Very recently learned to drive
  • Fairly skilled in stage design
