Matsuri Full

Matsuri is a young girl of short stature. She has shoulder-length light pink hair and blue eyes.

Her dress sense is very casual, and she usually dresses up as a delinquent of sorts, mirroring to her sly personality. She commonly wears a pair of headphones around her neck or atop her head, and is never far from her phone.


Matsuri is very precocious and smart for her age, and doesn't mind her own words. She can be a mischievous at times and she enjoys teasing others mainly Yuzu and Harumi. Like Mei, she tends to be very manipulative. She is also out of shame, as shown by the fact she didn't seem to care when little boys were apparently looking under her skirt,[3] and then blackmailed them into taking a incriminating picture of Mei so she could blackmail her.[4] Later it is explained how lonely Matsuri was feeling, and how the idea of losing her "older sister" Yuzu to Mei simply scared her, which led her to acting so wrong.[5]

  • (To herself, about Yuzu) "Yuzu-chan... I remember you. Have you been well? Since I'm bored, I think I'll visit you." [14]
  • (To Yuzu) "If you really love someone, you must show some consideration for their feelings." [15]
  • (To Harumi) "Taniguchi-senpai, you're very suspect, aren't you? You seem to be always just watching from a distance, but... That means you're afraid of being hurt. You always run from conflicts. Well, I can't say I hate girls smart like that." [12]
  • (to Yuzu) "I said this to before but you have think about the feelings of the person receiving this. the great affection you have has the possibility of becoming a heavy burden depending on the circumstances. if you are only pretending to be irresponsibly in love, than i won't say anything but if you're going to partake in this boring adult world. you need to look at reality more.
