Appearance Edit

Natsuki is a young girl who wears the standard Kitauji High School uniform for second years. Her auburn hair is tied in a high ponytail, two strands sticking out from it, and she has blue eyes.

Personality Edit

Natsuki is a reserved girl who is seen rarely talking, and she has an aloof and calm attitude. It is later revealed that the second-years are like this because of an event which occurred the year before Kumiko Oumae's first year at Kitauji.
