Akizuki has brown hair and brown eyes. She wears the standard girl's uniform of Hakoniwa Academy. Ten years later, Akizuki wears an apron and a chef's hat.


Student Council Executive Arc


Akizuki's "puppy."

Akizuki requests that the Student Council find her lost puppy, who disappeared in the last semester. Zenkichi Hitoyoshi and Hansode Shiranui eventually find the fully grown Borzoi, though Zenkichi is unable to capture it. He reports the situation to both Akizuki and Medaka Kurokami the next day.[2] After Medaka terrifies the dog into submission, it is returned to its owner. Akizuki claims it has become far more tame than when it was a puppy.[3] Later, while looking for a new model for Kizashi Yuubaru to paint, Zenkichi approaches her to ask for her cooperation. She rejects him, and sicks her dog on him as well.[4]

Bouquet Toss To The Future Arc

Akizuki is among the students who confront Medaka at the beginning of the 100 Flowers Run, holding flower number two.[5] She and the others are all blown away by Medaka's Kurokami Final.[6] All present wonder if Medaka thinks of their time together as good memories.[7] Her message to Medaka is the assurance she was charming.[8]

Epilogue Arc

Ten years later, Akizuki is a confectionist.[9]

Differences Between Anime and Manga

In the anime, because Yuubaru approaches the Student Council after the Swim Meet, Mogana Kikaijima is included as one of the possible models. Consequently, Zenkichi does not approach Akizuki.[10]


  • Akizuki's Borzoi is voiced by Hiroaki Tajiri in the anime.
