Akira Dōjima (
Akira has chin-length brown hair that has bangs hanging over her eyebrows and brown eyes.
She often wears clothes with neutral colors. Akira used to have the same look on her face all the time; a slight smile with a blank stare.
Akira is a very formal girl who will stand up for the koto club as seen with Dojima. Even though Akira studied Mizu no Hentai for 2 years straight, she is not very dedicated to the koto outside of her teaching lessons and any other songs. In the end however, Akira starts showing some true personality.
Akira used to be trapped by an invisible force which caused her to not be able to forgive people sometimes as seen with Satowa Hozuki when she attempted to reconcile with Akira. After a while though, Akira managed to let go of her depressive imaginary self and found the light at the end of her tunnel.
Akira was a young girl that looked up to Keishi Dojima and admired him as he had won many prizes in koto competitions and wanted to win too.
One day, her parents got into an accident and died from their injuries. This was a a very sad moment for the two kids and they supported each other.
Eventually when Keishi decided to leave the Tsubaki school, he made Akira the heir. Dojima instructed her to study the song Mizo no Hentai for two years and enter a competition.
Akira's prize wasn't just a win though. Other people were gossiping about how Satowa should've won and pitying Akira that she didn't like this and grew resentment.
Eventually, after Satowa was excommunicated, Akira became the heir of the Hozuki School.
Akira and Keishi were very close as kids whom she had a very strong bond with. Akira admired Keishi's koto playing and tried to become just as good as him. When their parents died in a car accident, they comforted each other. Akira was really disappointed when Keishi quit the koto. Because of him, she devoted herself to the koto.
