Appearance Edit

Narumi is a petite young woman with bra-strap, mid-back or lower back length pink hair and light caramel eyes.


Narumi is image conscious and keeps up appearances at work by hiding the fact that she is an otaku from everyone including her family. The only one who knows this side of her is Hirotaka as he is responsible for introducing her to the otaku lifestyle. She has known Hirotaka ever since they were in elementary school. They lost contact after middle school and started work at different companies. But now, they are both working at the same company.

He also promised to wait for her whenever she worked overtime, never dash her hopes and make her cry, never tell her that she's in the wrong, and lastly, he'd table for her at an event for two weeks, which instantly made Narumi agreed with him (As seen in Episode 1).

They have known each other ever since they were children and became friends.
