Appearance Edit

Midori is a young college student with a slim body and an average height with black-purple hair that she wears in a high side-ponytail held together with a white hair tie and wide grey-purple eyes.

Her wardrobe is a black and white pinstripe thigh-length dress cinched at the waist with a brown buckle belt. She wears a mustard-coloured blazer with starry magenta-coloured tights. On other days, her wardrobe usually consists of fun and eye-catching colours.

Personality Edit

Midori is a kind, willing and perceptive girl who is a passionate learner with a big heart. Although the youngest of the five friends, she still strives for large dreams and ambitions and looks to her friends to strive harder. She's always willing to lend a helping hand whenever possible. Her goal and dream are to write heart-capturing scripts for a variety of anime genres.

Trivia Edit

  • Being the youngest of the group, Midori graduated after the others from the animation club.
  • Midori is attending post-secondary in Tokyo after the promise was made to fulfil it.
  • Midori took care of Kaori Miyamori (Aoi Miyamori's older sister) who spontaneously decided to visit Aoi one day.
  • Midori is a fan of the Russian author Fyodor Dostoevsky. When she agreed to hold onto Aoi's apartment key before 10 AM and confessed that she was actually heading to bed after pulling an all-nighter to read Dostoevsky. His face appears as a decal on her jet in the Season 2 opening.
  • Midori spent two days with Kaori touring the city before realizing that the activities benefited her more than it did Kaori so she suggested Kaori to take over before her departure back into the country.
  • Midori willingly spent her own time researching about Japan's history of trains solely to help out Aoi when she didn't have to. This led to her receiving the nickname "Diesel-san" among the staff at Musashino Animation.
