She is described as 'plain'. She has a crush on Kyousuke and blushes to his compliments. She becomes comically blind when she is not wearing her glasses and seems to sprout dog ears when complimented. Despite Kyousuke's oblivious disposition and the way he catogorizes her as an old woman in a young girl's body, she continues to love him unconditionally, hoping he will requite the same feelings she harbors for him.
Manami has short, dark brown hair with bangs over her forehead and some slightly framing her face. Her eyes are light grey, accompanied by her red-rimmed glasses.
Manami weighs 50 kg and her measurements are B84 / W59 / H86.
As Kyousuke describes it, Manami is an "old lady stuck in the body of a teenage girl". She is gentle, soft-spoken, and always supportive of Kyousuke, giving him advice or just listening to his everyday concerns. Manami is also the passive-aggressive type. Whenever she is upset or angry on certain matters, Manami would still speak in her usual soft tone albeit in an ominous way, much to the fright to those around her, including Kyousuke.
Manami is the eldest daughter of two siblings, and is currently living in a detached home with her grandparents and her brother Iwao. She has been Kyousuke's childhood friend for a long time, as illustrated by the good relations between the Tamura and Kousaka families, and she serves as Kyousuke's constant companion and confidante at school.
Manami's Normal LifeEdit
The Hidden PastEdit
It is later revealed in the light novel series that Manami is the one responsible for conditioning Kyousuke into believing that he's "only normal", the way that she wants him to be. This is the direct cause for Kirino and Kyousuke's sibling fallout.
- Despite being stated to be 160 cm officially, fans tend to believe that she is closer to Kirino's height, thus making Manami between 163-164 cm. This is because in the anime she appears to be taller than Kuroneko despite both having the same height (Kuroneko is 160 cm, thus making Manami 163-164 cm, a closer range to Kirino's height). In the manga, her height is shown to be the same as Kuroneko while in the light novel, no comparison image was properly shown between Manami, Kirino, and Kuroneko so it can be assumed that she's shown as the proper height in the light novel which stated her height as 160 cm.
